MaskerAide LET'S FACE IT Purifying Cleansing Stick

Whether you’re very busy, always travelling or prefer a short but effective skincare routine, more skincare brands are listening and helping us out (thank you!). One of the steps in my skincare routine that I’m not a particular fan of is cleansing my skin. I don’t like spending a lot of time on it so I prefer using products that make the process quick but effective. MaskerAide recently came out with LET’S FACE IT Purifying Cleansing Stick that’s a multi-cleanser in a portable easy stick application that lets you get a really good clean in no time.

MaskerAide LET'S FACE IT Purifying Cleansing Stick Review

LET’S FACE IT is a unique oil-to-lather cleansing stick that cleanses, removes makeup, balances and nourishes the skin in one easy step. It’s an all-natural product made of 100% naturally derived ingredients, which include beet root, pink clay, rose petal bits and citrus oil. It’s perfect for taking with you to the gym or save space in your carry on, or, if you’re like me, prefer a quick and easy cleansing process.

MaskerAide LET'S FACE IT Purifying Cleansing Stick Review

My Thoughts:

With this being my first time using a cleansing stick, I really enjoy using it and even prefer it over regular cleansers. I feel like I get a thorough clean with a little bit of gentle exfoliation as I rub the stick around my face and the rose petal bits massage my skin. I also really enjoy its citrusy scent. It is very handy for travelling because it’s really lightweight and takes up less space than a regular cleanser would. Plus, there’s less mess to deal with. The stick will also last longer than regular cleansers because it doesn’t take more than a few swipes across your face to produce a good lather and it barely makes a dent in the stick. As MaskerAide states on their website, if you want to ‘do the most’ in the shortest amount of time, when it comes to your skincare routine, then try products like LET’S FACE IT that will make cleansing, one of the most annoying steps, a bit more enjoyable.

Great Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas from Farleyco that Won’t Break the Bank

Holiday Gift Guide, Review
Great Holiday Gift Ideas from Farleyco that Won't Break the Bank

Shopping online for Christmas gifts can be just as stressful as shopping at the mall when you’re faced with tons of sites to choose from and no clue where to start. Websites that carry multiple brands and different types of products are always at the top of my go-to list and Farleyco is one of them. They are your one-stop shop for anything beauty related from hair care to makeup and brushes to natural, eco-friendly products to even stuff for men, plus, it’s all very affordable and shipping is a breeze. Here are just a few of the great holiday stocking stuffer ideas I’ve rounded up from Farleyco that won’t break the bank.

Great Holiday Gift Ideas from Farleyco that Won't Break the Bank

#1 – 7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Mask / $1.99 for 1 or $7.99 for 5: Who doesn’t like products that pamper? Charcoal is still a very popular ingredient in skincare because it helps draw out impurities and dirt in your pores and the 7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Mask is especially made to sink into your skin really deep and take out all of that gunk. These masks are the perfect, thoughtful stocking stuffer idea that will remind your friend or loved one that they need to schedule a night pronto to pamper themselves!

#2 – So… ? Body Mists in Musk, Vanilla Milkshake & Pink Grapefruit / $4.99 ea. / 100ml: Getting a new fragrance to try out is always a nice gift to receive during the holidays but body mists are becoming more and more popular because they’re travel-friendly and easy for on-the-go touch ups after you’ve gone to the gym or to freshen up before a dinner date. Whatever the case may be, So… ? Body Mists are fun, lightweight and easy to wear no matter what kind of scent your giftee may prefer. Plus, you can gift someone with multiple scents like Musk, Vanilla Milkshake and Pink Grapefruit, for instance, because at $4.99 a pop for 100ml, you can’t go wrong with giving them options for different moods or settings they may want to freshen up for. These body mists are also not too strong, so they can be worn by someone with even a sensitive nose, plus you can buy these body mists for anyone on your list because they work for all ages.

#3 – EcoTools Ultimate Shade Duo / $8.99: Even though I have tons and tons of brushes already, I can never get enough of owning more and I know every makeup lover is the same way. There’s something about the feel of a new brush that excites me which is what I felt with the EcoTools Ultimate Shade Duo. They are the ultimate duo for helping anyone create a perfectly shaded and blended eye look. The Full Shadow brush is used for applying base colours and highlights to your brow bone while the Precision brush adds accent colours and is perfect for using in your crease. The duo is very easy to use and is pretty much all you need to create a complete eye look which is why it’s the perfect gift for any makeup lover.

#4 – Flexitol Lip Balm for Severely Dry Lips / $5.49 / 10 g: We all love buying things people want but it’s even more fun to buy things people NEED. Who really thinks of the little things when the holidays roll around, like taking care of annoying seasonal skincare issues like overly dry lips. I deal with dry lips as soon as the temperatures drop and found Flexitol Lip Balm for Severely Dry Lips so very helpful because products like that are always something I know I need to buy every winter but I never get around to it when I need to. So, if you have someone who deals with the same problem come wintertime, this lip balm is a great gift idea because it comes formulated with 2.5% synthesized urea, which ensures deep penetration to alleviate soreness and discomfort while visibly softening and smoothing lips quickly. It’s got a great minty scent and a chiselled applicator for easy application.

#5 – Real Techniques Dual Ended Expert Sponge / $10.49: I absolutely love RT sponges. They’re affordable and are just as good, if not better, than higher end sponges. The Real Techniques Dual Ended Expert Sponge is one of the newest and most exciting sponges they’ve released. It’s designed for medium to full coverage application of liquids and powders and is latex-free. The orange side works for applying foundation, while the pink side works with applying contour, highlight and blush. If the recipient on your list loves her sponges but needs some help with simplifying or downsizing their stash, this sponge is very handy and affordable because each side is part of two of their most popular sponges, their Miracle Finish Sponge and their Miracle Complexion Sponge which are $10.49 each, so you’re saving yourself from spending double that when you buy this sponge.

When I started out as a makeup artist, one of the essential products I added to my kit was Embryolisse’s Lait-Crème Concentrè. It’s a magical product that works as a moisturizer, primer and makeup remover. It revives dry and dehydrated skin, so it’s perfect for photo shoots, film and tv.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè Review

My Glittery Thoughts:

If you’re a makeup artist or just love multi-tasking products, Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè is amazing at helping fix up dry spots and also help your makeup apply better and last longer. A little goes a long way, so the tube will last you for quite a while. You can also use it anywhere that needs a boost of moisture, which means it’s perfect for winter. I’ve been applying it to my hands and it’s been a miracle worker. The cream dries down nicely and doesn’t feel heavy or sticky.
