Weekends with minimal planning are perfect for what my girlfriend Kim and I call, “maintenance days”. Those are the days when as women we find a few hours to ourselves to do those oh-so-important-but-sometimes-neglected beauty treatments. It can range from plucking eyebrows to a head to toe body scrub. It’s those little things guys don’t know about- or need to- that keep us looking fresh.
So this past Sunday I began the tedious chore of washing my makeup brushes. Usually I use a very gentle shampoo, but this time I used my new Beauty Blender Solid Sponge Cleaner. I purchased it specifically to clean my Beauty Blender, but after reading the reviews on how great it works on brushes I decided to try it on my brushes. It did make the process easier. Wet brush. Swirl on solid. Rinse. I’m sold.
I also got a chance to try out Bioré’s new Self Heating One Minute Mask. I literally only had a few minutes before turning in for the night and remembered I wanted to do a detoxing type mask after a long and tiring weekend. The Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask contains natural charcoal which draws out dirt and clears out pores. It works fast. Applied on a damp face, it immediately warms to the touch. When you rinse it off after a minute, your face looks and feels refreshed.
Maintenance day success.
