How to Make the Most Out Of 15 Minutes

8 Feb

Happy Saturday!  Usually the weekend brings all the things you didn’t get to do during the week, or those you put off.  I put off a lot of things, mainly dishes (even thou it’s so easy to just stick them dishwasher right away, but you know, the sink is right there and you don’t have to open it up or anything LOL). I also have a 4 month old puppy and a 10 year old as well. All this leaves me little time to pamper myself when I’m constantly on the go, getting dinner/lunch going, feeding and playing with the puppy and kid and so on and so on, and never stop till I drop.

In 15 minutes you can get a lot of fast decent pampering done.  These are my steps to get the most out of a beauty routine that sometime can take up to 30 minutes or more.

indexMask your face before you get in the shower

Step 1: Get that mask on your face!  This way it can sit and soak in and do all it’s masking magic while you get some other pampering in.  I’m still deciding on what mask I like the most right now, today I tried Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treament, which the verdict is still out right now on it.

Step 2: Get some cuticle oil and give some love to your fingers.  I have the Sephora brand cuticle oil in a brush pen.  Just take off the cap and apply.  While my mask is setting I can quickly put the oil and message the oil in.

indexShower Time

Step 3: Start that shower!  Now it’s time to do your shower routine but backwards!  Give that mask more time to soak in.

Step 4: Scrub your parts. I love the Deep Steep Sugar Scrub.  It’s all natural and leave my skin soft and moisturized.  You can go straight to their site but I would recommend going to Lucky Vitamin that has them for half the cost (I made a huge purchase and was pleased with their service).

indexWash your face

Step 5:  Now that your mask has had time to sit, now you can go ahead and take it off.  See how many things you have accomplished to this point: face, hands and body!

indexFinish it up

Step 6:  Now finish up.  Now is  a good time to wash your hair. I had some mask bits dry in my hair so it was nice to do this step last.  Also it will allow you to get any bits of mask off around the edges that sometimes you tend to miss (I know I do!)

imagesTa-Dah!

Ta-Dah!  You got all that done in probably less then 15 minutes!  I sometimes have a few extra to dry my hair and do my make up. Thou sometimes it’s nice to have the pampering time more so the make up and hair!

Enjoy your weekend!

Deep Steep Grapefruit and Bergamot Bubble Bath

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone is looking to a fun and awesome weekend, also a relaxing one.

This is how I relax….with a nice bath. My boyfriend bought me a smorgasbord of bath items, and Deep Steep Bubble Bath was one of them. He wanted to get me another option so I could stretch out my Lush Bath Bombs.  I wasn’t sure about the grapefruit, but he knew I love anything bergamot, so he know it was a winner.

Let me tell you how much I love this product!  Bergamot has a nice deep scent and the grapefruit gives a little tang to the smell so it’s relaxing and invigorating to your senses.  But the bubbles…oh my goodness the bubbles. I have never had a bubble bath that the bubbles were so luscious and over abundant with just a few drops of it.  I was in the tub for an hour and the bubbles didn’t even dissipate.  I was really impressed by that.

Here is another plus side to this product: It’s cruelty free.  But wait, there is more!  It’s vegan, gluten free, no parabens, no sulfate, mineral oils or artificial fragrances. It’s an all natural product, which the company prides themselves on.

If your interested here is the list of ingredients:

Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Infusion of Organic Herbs; Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Coco Glucoside, Glycerin (Vegan), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Aroma (Organic and Wildcrafted Aroma Blend), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Caprylic Acid (Coconut Fatty Acid), Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Natural, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid.
