A Review: Pineapple Pick Me Up Face Mask

I love face masks. I always have. They are fun and usually make my skin feel amazingly soft. When I started using Perfectly Posh products I couldn’t wait to try the face masks. I quickly discovered these masks were superior to the ones I used to buy at the local drug store.

The ingredients are naturally based and safe for even my kids to use! Because there are no fillers, a little goes a long way so I am really getting a great deal. Plus, they work better than I could have ever dreamed of.

Everyone who uses Posh has a “go to” mask; a favorite. I literally tried every single mask before I found a favorite and it was the one I was originally least excited about. It is unassuming; clear and light instead of thick and some fun color that makes for a great selfie. What mask is it? Pineapple Pick Me Up.

FF4047-1

The first time I tried it I was live on my Facebook VIP page. I described the luscious pineapple scent, but other than that I wasn’t immediately impressed. It was clear, light, and I really didn’t feel a tingle so I doubted it was working. I told my group that the mask was OK, but certainly not my favorite. Then I washed the face mask off …

… And suddenly I was sold! My opinion changed on the spot. My skin felt soft, smooth, and had a radiant glow! I felt beautiful; like a new bride! I now use this mask at last once a week and it takes my dull winter skin and transforms it into a gorgeous glow.

Pineapple Pick Me Up

Unassuming, you can’t even tell I am wearing a face mask! 

So what makes Pineapple Pick Me Up so great, I mean aside from the fact it makes me look and feel amazing?

Well, let me tell you!
Pineapple Pick Me Up is an exfoliation mask, also called an OFF mask. It removes dead skin using a chemical exfoliation with tropical fruit enzymes (so good chemicals, not scary ones).

Ingredients:

*Bromelain (pineapple) and papain (papaya) help gently break down dry dead skin cells for a rapid exfoliation; cleansing and brightening skin for a beautiful glow. They are full of vitamin C which pampers acne, fine lines, sun-damaged skin, and uneven skin tones. Bromelain also softens skin and soothes inflammation and swelling.

*Acai and mangosteen extract are full of antioxidants in the forms of vitamins A, C, and E, which protect your skin from free radicals and leave your skin nourished and rejuvenated.
They also contain anti-inflammatory properties, that help soothe acne, and fatty acids (omega 3,6, and 9) which helps moisturize dry skin.

*Neem oil & honey are both moisturizing and are antibacterial agents that help cleanse your skin.

*Moringa and pomegranate restore hydration and re-balance your skin.

I love the radiant glow I have after using PPMU

Combine these ingredients and you are left with a magical facial elixir that will leave you feeling refreshed and fabulous! At least that is how I always feel afterward. So if you want to feel radiant then I definitely suggest Pineapple Pick Me Up.

Christmas, Christmas Everywhere!

Perfectly Posh is making me feel all Christmas-y and my husband is not amused at all. He is a die-hard “Christmas doesn’t start until the day after Thanksgiving” type of guy (and please read his quote in a mocking voice because that is how I imitate him about this). I am all like “November 1! BOOM! It is Christmas! Thanksgiving? Psh! Just a warm up for the real holiday!”

OK, so why is Posh making me feel all Christmas-y? Well, let me tell you! They keep releasing amazing holiday themed products! Oh boy! This stuff in da bomb! Sorry, I don’t really talk like that. Two products have already been released!

If you haven’t already, please got check out “It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas!” I’ll wait …. (cue Jeopardy song)

Done? Awesome! Now to tell you Posh has 2 more winter items AND 2 more are coming!!! If you can’t do math, that will be a total of SIX holiday themed Posh products!! *cue happy dance*

IMG_20171107_141940.jpg

Last night I got home and was delighted to discover my order arrived. What was in the fabulous Poshy box? Well, there was lots of stuff, but I am here to tell you about Snow & Tell Brightening Face Moisturizer and Love you Snow Much (isn’t that the best name ever?! Gah! So cute!) O2 Bubbling Face Mask.

Wait. What?? Did you just say O2 bubbling face mask? What the heck is an O2 bubbling face mask?

Patience Grasshopper. I will tell you in due course.
First I want to remind you these awesome holiday-themed items are specialty items. One might even call them Limited-Edition. They are available until sold out and if you don’t get them right away there is a chance you will cry when you no longer can get them. You can go HERE to grab them now.

OK, now let’s chat about this really fascinating face mask I mentioned above. What the heck is an O2 face mask, you ask? Well, oxygenating face masks are very trendy right now. They work to remove impurities from the skin and clean out your pores without drying out your skin. The bubbles are tingly and tickly and leave your face clean and refreshed. Perfectly Posh loves adding on-trend products to our line-up so I wasn’t surprised when they introduced Love You Snow Much. “Brighten dull winter skin with licorice root and vitamin B3 in this bubbling gel-to-foam face mask with tingling mint.”

IMG_20171107_144204.jpg

About 3 pumps, rub onto face, leave for about 10 minutes, rinse, pat dry. That’s it!

This mask is effervescent, super peppermint-y, and leaves you with a refreshing, cooling sensation. If you love the feel of BFF, then you will surely love Love You Snow Much. Can I just say, I am really, really obsessed with Love You Snow Much! I am definitely buying several more to have on hand!

The other new product Posh released is Snow & Tell and it was no mistake they released this at the same time as Love You Snow Much. It is the perfect moisturizing follow-up after your new bubbly face mask. “May your face be merry and bright! Licorice root and vitamin C promotes the appearance of more even looking skin tone with moisturizing cocoa and Shea butters.”

This face moisturizer is going to be the best thing ever for your winter face! Yes, you have a winter face. Our skin needs different things based on the season/weather. My skin is so dry in the winter! I get chapped and red and raw. It is terrible! A good face moisturizer is the only way to protect your skin and prevent raw, winter skin! The combination of cocoa and Shea butters will leave your skin hydrated and fabulous. I plan to stock up on this also. Oh, and did I mention this guy is vegan? Well, it is!

You can get both Love You Snow Much and Snow & Tell for just $19 (not including tax & shipping). If you want to learn more about Perfectly Posh products or maybe you are thinking “Hey, I want get in on this action.” I would love to chat! Send me a message!

Otherwise, put your best (winter) face forward with these 2 amazing products. And don’t forget to pick up some for gifts as well!

BFF uses micro-eco-sugar beads as the exfoliant. These are biodegradable and sustainable sourced. They are a vegan polylactic acid beads derived from sugar cane. It is good to note that because they come from natural materials, you may notice a slight variation in bead size when you use the product.
These sugar beads help rid your skin  of dead skin cells while removing dirt and grim from your pores, leaving your skin glowing!

All About Eyes

Did you know that the skin around your eyes is 40% thinner than the rest of your face? Did you know that is why the first signs of aging are usually laugh lines around your eyes. I prefer “laugh lines” to “crows feet.” It sounds better, don’t you think?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to “look my age.” I turned 40 this year and I think it is a fabulous age. 40 is fabulous! Laugh lines, not so much.

22047804_10214758156853732_731263173856116917_o (1)

The answer is eye cream. The better answer is Perfectly Posh eye cream. Perfectly Posh is naturally based with amazing ingredients, no scary chemicals, and no wasteful fillers. Even better the products are cruelty free, made in the USA, and affordable!

Posh has 2 eye products to choose from; Impish Eyes and Prize on the Eyes. So what is the difference? Well, let me tell you!

FF4041-1

Impish Eyes

Impish Eyes is amazing. It has a cooling roller ball, perfect for de-puffing eyes and reduce dark circles. Impish Eyes is a serum instead of a cream. This means it is a lot more light weight and perfect for oilier skin types.

It is loaded with caffeine, white tea, and cucumber. These ingredients take tired-looking eyes and pamper them so they have a wonderfully youthful appearance.

Impish Eyes also has jojoba oil and aloe vera; these ingredients are hydrating and non-greasy. The CoQ10 reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

To apply, you use a small amount in small circular motions from the outside of your eye (along the socket) toward your nose. Use it morning and night!

LN1029-1

Prize On The Eyes (Back in stock with a new revamped package!)

Prize On The Eyes is our newer eye product and is a cream. It is part of the Look Natural line and is vegan and free of colors and synthetic fragrance.

It helps give the skin cells around your eyes a rest. CoQ10 boosts the appearance of collagen, tones, and improves the texture, giving a more even-looking complexion. It is very hydrating; loaded with ultra-moisturizing sunflower oil with a shea butter base (everyone who loves soft skin knows shea butter rocks!).

Twice a day, use a pea-sized amount and with your ring finger (because it applies the least amount of pressure) gently tap from outer eye toward your nose.

Why do we go from out to in?? This helps elasticity. The other way stretches your skin. That is  bad.

 

layer product

I don’t think  I look 40. Thank you Posh!

 

Did you know you can layer these 2 products?? Yup! I do exactly this! I love and need the cooling roller ball of Impish Eyes. It helps reduce the dark circles I have. Prize on the Eyes helps “plump” my thin eye skin, giving me a less hollow look. They work together giving me that awesome “You don’t look 40!!!!” reaction I really love hearing.

You can also use Impish Eyes in the morning and Prize on the Eyes in the evening if you want the benefits of both without laying them.

If you have any question ask away! I love to help!

Bright Young Thang

I swear I am not trying to be cutesy with that title. It is actually the name of an amazing face wash I recently bought from Perfectly Posh. It is from their new fall/winter line.

I am totally loving this wash. Usually I like a good exfoliating face wash, but the silkiness of Bright Young Thang feels so amazing on my skin, I can’t help but love it. It is part of the Perfectly Posh Look Natural line, which means it is vegan, dye free, and free of parabans, sulfates, and other nasty chemicals. These facts are a big reason I started using Posh. Bright Young Thang is perfect for all skin types, so if you have skin, keep reading!

Bright Young Thang

Bright Young Thang non-exfoliating face wash, perfect for all skin types. Leaves you feeling radiant!

When I first opened the tube I smelled the product. It has a nice light citrus scent; a perfect pick-me-up in your morning routine. A pea-sized dollop is all that is needed! There isn’t a lather, which is fine with me (I’m less likely to get anything in my eyes this way), but rather a creaminess as you wash your face in the tried and true upward circular motion. It effectively removed all my make-up on a “full-face” day. It left my skin feeling pleasantly taut. When I looked in the mirror I definitely looked more fresh-faced and glowy (yup, totally making up words here).

What makes Bright Young Thang so stellar? It is in the ingredients. Let me touch on the top 3.

1) Macadamia oil: This is a light weight oil that has a non-greasy feel. The chemical profile is similar to human sebum (this is what keeps the skin’s surface soft). It is full of fatty acids (I will get into each one below), making it perfect for dry or mature skin (ahem, I may happen to fall into that last category now that I am 40). Macadamia oil also has phytosterols. These are the building blocks of our cellular membrane. They protect, calm, and heal your skin and reduce inflammation. I am all about that!

OK so I mentioned macadamia oil has fatty acids. Did you know there are all kinds of fatty acids and each one does something different? Yup, it’s true!
These are some of the ones you will find in macadamia oil:

*Palmitoleic acid: delays the premature aging of skin, discourages wrinkles from forming, and helps keep your skin taut; making it perfect for mature skin.
*Oleic acid: provides great moisture and has regenerating properties.
*Linoleic acid: keeps skin hydrated by helping prevent trans-epidermal water loss (that is basically water loss between skin layers).

2) Ginseng root: Ginseng revitalizes, tones, and stimulates (I’m already sold!). It has a reputation for being a strong anti-aging skin care treatment because it is loaded with phytonutrients (this plant compound protects plants and works in us also! Yay phytonutrients!). Ginseng can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, firm and tighten your skin, and balance your natural oils; making it perfect for all skin types! Ginseng can brighten skin tone because it absorbs into the skin very quickly thus improving circulation (this is what causes the brightening). This improved circulation can also reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles and puffiness (yeah, I need this … and more sleep).

3) Caffeine: I love skin care products with caffeine. Seriously, I am addicted to them! The caffeine has a tightening effect that I L-O-V-E! Caffeine is an antioxidant. Antioxidants fight free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for causing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of elasticity. If antioxidants fight these and caffeine has antioxidants, … Yeah, I am pretty sure caffeine is the soul mate to my skin.
Caffeine also has anti-inflammatory properties; thereby reducing inflammation and redness in your skin and even vanquishing dark circles. Hellooooo even skin tone! Good-bye dark circles!
Did you know that caffeine can also minimize the appearance of cellulite? This is because it dehydrates fatty cells. Water disappearing creates smoother skin! Boom!

 

So basically caffeine can reduce the appearance of age, redness, dark circles, cellulite, and create an amazing tightening effect for younger looking skin. It is like the Fountain of Youth (or maybe an ingredient in it?). How can you not love caffeine in your skin care products?

21753149_10214612292607217_4499197727504285973_o

So how does Bright Young Thang rank in my skin care regime? It is now my morning wash; the perfect pick-me-up. PLEEEEEASE tell me you wash your face when you wake even of you washed it before bed. Did you know you sweat and drool and who knows what else while you sleep??? It’s true! Wash your face when you wake! Not doing so is just plain icky so make sure it is part of your routine!

Happy Poshing!
