Happy Thursday everybody! Tomorrow is a new month and it’s a busy one full of decorating, hosting, purchasing and so much more. However, it’s important, even under all that stress, to take care of yourself. One way to pamper yourself is a little me time with a clay mask or just the feeling of fresh, clean skin 🙂 Today I am sharing with you some of my recent skincare adventures and reviews so you can pamper and take care of yourself this holiday season. Oh! I almost forgot, all of these are also amazing gifts and stocking stuffers! Yay! Hope you’re having a beautiful day and wishing you luck on this journey of SKINCARE.
Klei Beauty is an all NATURAL skincare shop that sells four masks/scrubs. A few months back, I received a package in the mail from Klei with my first mask, NOURISH. Nourish is a clarifying clay mask made with “Kaolinite (Rose Clay), Kaolin (White Clay), Rose Petal Powder, Coconut Milk Powder, Banana Fruit Powder, Honey Powder, Rose Geranium Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil” and is very gentle on the skin.
The second mask I have received recently is, CLARIFY. Clarify is also a clay mask that was made to rebalance and replenish. The masks ingredients include, “Illite (French Green Clay), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Powder, Lavender Flower Powder, Spinach Powder, Medicago Sativa (Alfalfa) Leaf Powder, Clary Sage Oil, Lavender Oil.”
I personally use Nourish and Clarify once a week and have never had a bad reaction or result. Therefore, I rate both these masks: 10/10

Liv Lavish Goods is another natural skincare brand currently selling the most luxurious Peppermint Mocha Coffee Body Scrub. The Peppermint Mocha body scrub–which also happens to be vegan and cruelty free– is made with, “Coffee, Organic coconut oil, Himalayan sea salt, and Organic peppermint oil” <- UNDER 5 INGREDIENTS!
I have been using this body scrub for at least a month now and I am so obsessed with the scent, scrub and moisturizing affect (from the coconut oil) after using. I can guarantee that I will be making a purchase as soon as I run out! Therefore, I rate the scrub: 10/10.
Seed Phytonutrients is an essential skin, hair and body care brand focused on NATURAL beauty coming this 2018. The coolest thing about Seed Phytonutrients is that they’re a sustainable business working alongside organic farmers ” to harness the power of local seed varieties to create elevated natural products that make us look good and feel good.”
I had the honors to try out and review some of their products. Today I will be sharing my top 3 products. However, there will be a full SEED PHYTONUTRIENTS post coming soon…
My Top 3:

FACIAL MIST-> A nourishing, hydrating and relaxing, lightweight facial mist that works well with all skin types for glowing skin. This mist is made with a few ingredients such as, Aloe leaf juice, lavender extract and peppermint extract. My rate: 10/10.
VITAMIN C MASK-> The Vitamin C Mask is the first of the two I tried and is by far one of my new favorite masks. This mask is a relaxing, creamy clay based mask made with ingredients like, vitamin C, and argan & avocado oils to brighten and revitalize the skin.

The Matcha Reserve is a brand built upon Matcha–a stone-ground green tea powder that has been used in traditional asian medicines for ages. I was capable of trying out one if their skincare products– The Matcha Mud Mask Deep Skin Cleanser– which also happens to be one of their best sellers! This mud mask “penetrates deep into skin surface to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin moisturized and healthy.”
The mask goes on smoothly in a cream base and is removed after 10-15 min with warm water. I have enjoyed using this mask and would rate it a 9/10.
Masqueology is a Korean Skin Care brand focusing on healthy, beautiful skin. I had the pleasure of trying out a few of their products. However, today I will be sharing with you the most used gift sent to me which is the 24K Gold Serum– an anti-aging, moisturizing serum bringing elasticity and youth to the skin.
Over the past week or so, I have used this serum every night and I can already seen a huge difference! My skin always feels moisturized, firmed and fresh after using. My rate: 10/10

Saranghae Skincare was generous enough to send over their lovely 5-Step Bundle to rejuvenate and repair the skin. This bundle included the following:
MOISTERIZING CLEANSER-> The moisturizing cleanser is an oil & foam cleanser that inhabits the ingredients, Truffle extract & Gold. This cleanser seeks deep into pores to remove impurities, dirt and toxins. My rate: 8/10.
RADIANCE SERUM-> This serum was designed to “deliver crucial nutrients like antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins directly to your living cells.” Additionally, the serum prevents dry skin by balancing the skins moistures and oils. My rate 9/10.
FIRM & LIFT CREAM-> The firm and lift eye cream was formulated to “repair damaged skin cell membranes” and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, swelling, redness and age spots. This product also works well on repairing dry skin. My rate: 7/10 (the reason why this is a lower score even when it worked perfectly fine on my skin is because I am not able to test how well this product does on wrinkles and age spots. However, I do believe this product works well and would definitely recommend)
RENEWAL EYE CREAM-> This eye cream is formulated with ingredients such as Sang Hwang Mushroom Extract, adenosine, vitamin B3, elastin and collagen to restore, brighten, diminish wrinkles, lift and from the skin. This product works well reviving the skin and has the rate of 8/10 in my book.
ELEMENTAL ESSENCE MASK-> The elemental essence mask is a 6 piece sheet mask set that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This product can be used 6 times (One mask per use) and is perfect for a quick pamper or traveling. My rate: 9/10
