OMG! The Cutest Masks from I Dew Care at ULTA

 Affiliate Link Press Sample



OMG! The Cutest Masks from I Dew Care at ULTA:

Have you see these cute kitten-themed masks from I Dew Care at ULTA? OMG, the are adorable! Forever the kid-at-heart, give me a little whimsy and I am all about it! These masks are certainly that...whimsical, fun, and so cute. For me, getting excited about a product makes me want to use it. As much as I love self-care and self-pampering, sometimes I put it off because I am "too tired". Well, the cute factor of these masks seems to prompt me to want to treat myself! The result? When I mask more frequently, I really do see the increased benefit in my skin. 


So let's dive right into these adorable masks from I Dew Care! Here is some info about each mask from the brand and how I liked it! :) 

I Dew Care | Headbands:
What is the first step when facial masking? Getting that hair pulled back! The process is just that much more cute and fun with these Bear and Kitty-themed headbands. Yes, my daughter totally wants to steal this black kitty headband for me (and I think I will just go ahead and let her, lol!). These are adorable and they work great to pull your hair back so that you can mask effectively without worries about your hair. ;) These retail for $6.00.

I Dew Care | Space Kitten:
EXFOLIATING GALACTIC BLACK PEEL-OFF MASK
[ SMOOTH + EXFOLIATE ]

This one is so fun to apply. I mean, it is a black sparkly mask. How fun! Sure, the glitter is not necessary. However, there is a fun factor here that is undeniable. Also, as I mentioned above, half of the process of doing spa-treatments at home are the relaxation and fun factor. If I deem a mask to be fun and enjoyable, then that is at least part of the benefit! A "fun" mask will motivate me to use it more. 

This mask is a charcaol, topaz, and diamond powder infused- peel off mask that shimmers with royal blue glitter for an out-of-this-world galactic black look. Volcanic ash and witch hazel team up to exfoliate skin, absorb impurities and control sebum revealing a noticeably brighter complexion.
This is a great mask to use when you feel like you need to purify, exfoliate, absorb oil, and brighten your skin. 

Key Ingredients and their benefits:
  • TOPAZ + DIAMOND POWDER: Gently exfoliate + visibly brighten
  • CHARCOAL: Absorbs oil + impurities
  • WITCH HAZEL: Oil control + clarifying

HOW TO USE:
Apply to T-zone area for oil and blackhead control
1. Cleanse face and remove excess water
2. Apply a generous and even layer to T-zone areas, avoiding eyebrows and hairline.
3. Leave on and relax for 20 minutes.
4. Once mask is dry, gently peel off from the edges.
5. Rinse away any excess product with warm water, then apply your daily toner and moisturizer.

I Dew Care | Disco Kitten: 
ILLUMINATING DIAMOND PEEL-OFF MASK
[ SMOOTH + ILLUMINATE ]

This illuminating mask smooths and brightens your skin while also boosting hydration! The Disco Kitten mask is an innovative, chrome peel-off mask that instantly boosts radiance while providing gentle exfoliation + anti-aging support for a natural, healthy-looking glow.

Key Ingredients:
  • DIAMOND POWDER: Boosts elasticity + purifies the skin
  • PEARL POWDER: Gentle exfoliation + visible brightening
  • WHITE FLOWER COMPLEX: Hydrates + nourishes

HOW TO USE:
After cleansing, apply a generous, even layer to dry skin (avoiding eyebrows and hairline) with your I Dew Care Silicone Brush. Allow to dry for 20 - 30 minutes and gently peel away from outer edges of face.
*Apply a small amount of cleansing balm/oil beneath hairline to protect and ease in mask removal.

Retails for $23

I Dew Care | Sugar Kitten:

HYDRATING HOLOGRAPHIC PEEL-OFF MASK
[ SMOOTH + HYDRATE ]

This holographic peel-off mask infused with real ruby and pearl powder that starts out a shimmering iridescent emerald color then transforms into a soft holographic pink upon application. Rose water and hyaluronic acid work together to hydrate and revitalize dry skin for that dewy-looking, post-facial glow. This mask might just be my favorite of the trio and I think that is because of the hyaluronic acid (one of my fav skincare ingredients!). 

Key Ingredients:
  • RUBY + PEARL POWDER: Gently exfoliate + visibly brighten
  • ROSE WATER: Boosts elasticity + calms irritated skin
  • HYALURONIC ACID: Hydrates + visibly plumps

HOW TO USE: 
After cleansing, apply a generous, even layer to dry skin (avoiding eyebrows and hairline) with your I Dew Care Silicone Brush. Allow to dry for 20-30 minutes and gently peel away from outer edges of face. Rinse off any excess with warm water and follow with toner and moisturizer. Suitable for AM or PM use.

Retails for $23

Overall, I am super pleased with these masks from I Dew Care! They are fun to use and they certainly boost your skincare routine! :) Have you seen these cute masks at your local Ulta? 

As always, thanks for reading!
XOXO!!!

Get the Look with Neutrogena: Kerry Washington at the Met Gala


image source @kerrywashington on Instagram
KERRY WASHINGTON
MAKEUP ARTIST: CAROLA GONZALEZ

Have you seen all of the beautiful and unique artsy looks from the Met Gala? This has to be one of my very favorite red carpet events to cover as the looks are just so creative from head-to-toe! 

Kerry Washington looked beautiful, as always, in her super unique look. Kerry is a Neutrogena Brand Ambassador. They used many of my favorite Neutrogena products on her for her look and to prep her skin for her look. I am a HUGE fan of the HydroBoost line. I am not surprised it was a key ingredient in making her skin look so good! So, here is her beauty breakdown directly from Neutrogena:

SKINCARE PREP

“In order to achieve Kerry’s healthy glowing complexion, I always start by cleansing her skin with Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Fragrance Free. I always like to begin makeup application with clean, fresh skin.  I then proceed to using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost dream team.  My first step, Hydro Boost Water Gel layered with Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum, to boost hydration, and Hydro Boost City Shield Facial Gel Mist to lock in moisture, and replenish skin. The combination of these products work great together as a primer to use before makeup application because they hydrate while creating a smooth canvas to achieving flawless skin. I then proceed to moisturizing the lips with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment and leave it on until lipstick application. I blot the lip with tissue paper and apply the desired lip shade.”

MAKEUP APPLICATION

“Once the Hydro Boost trio has absorbed into the skin, I begin makeup application. My first makeup application step is to highlight and conceal imperfections wherever needed with Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer in Deep, which is the shade that compliments Kerry's skin tone. I apply it under the eye area to conceal any darkness and highlight certain areas of the face to reflect light. These areas are: under eye, nose bridge, center chin, and center of forehead. To create an even skin tone on Kerry, I used Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Hydrating Foundation Stick in Cocoa. I love this new foundation stick because you can build the foundation from light to full coverage, and it can also be used as a concealer. For Kerry’s eyes I wanted to create an ethereal, playful, and fanciful look. I applied different layers of iridescent eyeshadows and layered them all together and extended the application to her cheekbones. I also layered both shades of  Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Illuminator in Sandstone and Rose Gold right on top of the eyeshadows on the cheekbones to create a more luminous effect.

Right after the highlighter, I applied the blush on top of the highlighters and the apple of the cheeks.  For this look, I used Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Blush in Flushed. I then applied a few Lashify B10 lashes on the edge of the eyes, lined the upper lash line  with  Neutrogena Intense Gel Eyeliner in Dark Brown, and applied a few coats of Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Plumping Mascara for thickness and volume to top and bottom lashes. 

I accentuated Kerry’s eyebrows with Neutrogena Nourishing Brow Pencil in Brown.  I always finish the look with the lipstick,  and the shade for today’s look is  Neutrogena’s MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Almond Nude.”

PRODUCT FOCUS: NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST HYDRATING FOUNDATION STICK + HYDRO BOOST ILLUMINATOR

“The Hydro Boost Hydrating Foundation Stick has a coverage range from light to full. It’s buildable, and can be also be used as a concealer to spot conceal any unevenness on the skin. It has a very creamy and hydrating formula and can be applied with a sponge applicator or a round foundation brush. I also love the new Hydro Boost Illuminator, it glides smoothly onto the skin. It gives a very nice natural sheen to the skin and can also be used on the body to highlight areas where you want to illuminate the skin. Today I layered the Sandstone and Rose Gold Illuminator and applied them on Kerry’s cheekbones with a small round brush in circular motion.”
