Need a brightening and tightening face mask? Found the perfect one:

If you know me, you know I love face masks. I love trying new ones all the time! Well, my friend recommended I try TonyMoly’s egg pore masks. This friend is obsessed with a lot of Korean beauty products and said TonyMoly does wonders. I’ve tried TonyMoly’s sheet masks for brightening from Urban Outfitters and it was hydrating and so refreshing. I decided to order one off Amazon.  

 First of all, how cute is this packaging? Just adorable! 

 On the inside is the actual mask. The consistency is really interesting. It looks like clay, but feels sort of like a light, whipped merengue. Going on the face, it’s smooth and spreads easily. You can either apply it all over your face or apply it to trouble spots. I used it all over my face and let it dry for 20 minutes and then wiped it off with a warm wash rag.

I’ve used it about 3 times a week for about a month now and I already see results. Others have noticed it too. After application, my skin feels soft and firm. After waiting for the redness to go away from the warm washrag, my skin tone looks bright just after the first application! If that is not miracle work, I don’t know what is!

4.9 out of 5

  • Easily applied
  • Cute packaging
  • Affordable (less than $10 on Amazon)
  • Quick results, noticeable after first couple applications
  • Refreshing and cooling

Homemade Brightening Face Scrub: Warm and Spicy

So I promised a homemade face mask post, but I realized that I had too many recipes for just one post. I decided to just post one or two, but spread out. They’re all super easy because who wants to be spending any more than 10 minutes making a face mask :/ No one. So enjoy ❤

Warm and Spicy is one of my favorite homemade masks. Yes, I made up the recipe and the name, haha. 

Here’s what Warm and Spicy will do for your skin: 

  1. Brighten
  2. Clean
  3. Exfoliate
  4. Tone Evening

List of what you’ll need: 

  1. Sugar
  2. Cinnamon
  3. Nutmeg
  4. Honey
  5. Lemon juice

Step One  

    

Just a teaspoon and a half of sugar into a small bowl of your choosing.

Step Two  
Just a sprinkle of nutmeg. Nutmeg is a curative so you won’t want to skip on this part. It heals acne scars, sun spots and dark spots. It also uncloggs pores! 

Step Three  
Add about three shakes of cinnamon. You may be asking “why cinnamon?” Cinnamon has so many benefits for skin and hair that many people don’t realize. If you have pimples, dry skin or eczema (I have all 3) cinnamon in facemasks or cinnamon oil helps with that aspect. 

Step Four 
  

One tablespoon of honey. You can also add more if you do not need as much exfoliation. Or less if you like more of a scruby mask. Honey is great for brightening and skin tone evening.

Step Five  
Add just a teaspoon of lemon juice which will brighten anything the honey won’t. It also will clean your skin really well. (I hate this step because the lemon juice makes the mask smell like a really weird combination. But I assure you, lemons are great for your skin).

  
  

You’ll want to scrub your face gently in small circles and then let it sit for about 20-25 minutes. When time is up, wipe off with a warm rag then splash your face with water to make sure you got all the sugar granules off. Moisturize and repeat atleast once a week before you apply makeup! 

As you can see here, there’s enough for 2 applications. I always make more than I need because I like to keep adding as I’m waiting for my first layer to dry.
