Product Review: Dead Sea Mud Mask

by honestlyerica on February 26, 2015

I love facial masks. Masks are apart of my master plan to keep this skin young and fabulous for as long as possible. So when InstaNatural wanted to send me this Dead Sea Mud Mask and as a bonus the Vitamin C Facial Toner, I was excited.

This mud mask is made with excellent ingredients. Along with pure deep sea mud, it also contains organic shea butter, sunflower oil, aloe vera juice and jojoba oil. It has a really creamy consistency which is pretty surprising for a mud mask. This 16 ounce container is going to last me forever. I literally just pat my fingers in this mask to apply on my face. I have used it a few times and haven’t made a dent at all

I am enjoying this mask and my skin feels soft and tight after applying. The claim is age defying and acne fighting, which who doesn’t enjoy? I will definitely continue to use. probably for the next few months at least. Can’t wait to test out the toner, which claims to unclog pores and combat oily skin.

Thank you to Brandbacker and Instanautral for the skin care products.!

These products were sent to me for free for my review. My opinions are completely honest. Amazon links are affiliate links.

When Influenster wants to send you free food, you say yes! So I was sent the Rock The LunchBox vox box and it came with 5 coupons for snacks. So I went to Whole Foods and Target to pick up these tasty treats. As you can see these snacks are geared towards kids and stuff to pack in your lunch bag. I guess I will share will share with my children , although I totally already enjoyed the lunch kit alone :). Here are the things I picked up.

-Annie’s White Cheddar Bunnies

-Rudi’s Honey Sweet Whole Wheat Bread

-Honest Kids Organic Fruit Drink

-Annie’s Mini Pizza Bagels 

-Applegate Half Time Lunch Kit

All of these items are made with really excellent and healthy ingredients. And this is why I love Influenster. First, you send me free food (appreciate!) and then you make sure my family is snacking on stuff that is good for you (2xs appreciate!). OK, keep the boxes coming!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes

Goodbye Straight Hair!

by honestlyerica on February 12, 2015

The naps are back! And I am so happy about it too. It feels good to workout again and shower without a helmet. Now, when will I flat-iron again? I really don’t know. I am just thrilled that I didn’t experience any heat damage. It was really easy to revert. I did a hot oil treatment with mostly olive and coconut oil. Then I followed by shampooing and deep conditioning with Shea Moisture’s Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair Nourishing Hair Masque. Goodbye straight hair! How often do you straighten your natural hair? Thank you for watching!

Headband Curls on Semi-Straight Hair

by honestlyerica on February 1, 2015

Having straight hair has some advantages. First, I can comb my hair whenever I want. It’t not some big production. Second, there is the challenge of keeping it straight for an unnatural amount of time. Like not working out so you don’t sweat., now that’s healthy. Or the magic you have to make when attempting to take a shower and not get your hair wet. Lastly, is all the cute and easy styles you can experiment with such as headband curls.

Headband curls, the lazy mans way of getting super cute curls and waves. I honestly don’t think it can get easier than this. You will need hair (hat’s a given), a large headband, hands and the energy to use those hands to wrap said hair around that headband. And then let it set.  I used a bit of gel to give my hair some hold and let it set overnight. I unraveled the hair the next day, removed the headband, separate and fluff. Ridiculously easy and way too good looking.

Have you tried headband curls? I am wondering how this would work on my natural hair. Might be a video in the future. Thank you for watching!
