Hello. 🙂 I’ve used elf Marsh-Mellow Soothing Mask four times already. Here’s my review/impression of the facial mask.

What is the purpose of this facial mask? On the box, it says that it’s a soothing clay mask that calms the skin with a nourishing layer of rich, opaque clay-gel hybrid formula. It’s also infused with coconut water, kaolin clay, and shea butter. I love shea butter. Awesome! It leaves the skin feeling supple, soft, and soothed. Does it?

Rich and creamy 🙂

Yes, it’s a clay mask that calms the skin.

Yes, the mask does feel rich and thick.

Yes, it removed excess oils.

Yes, it did leave my skin feeling moisturized.

Yes, it soothed the skin.

So the mask is inbetween a clay mask and a moisturizing mask. It sucks the oils out of the pores, but it doesn’t leave the skin feeling extremely dry. It didn’t irritate my skin or break my skin out. That sounds perfect! Well, there is one thing about this face mask that bothered me, which is the fragrance/perfume. It annoyed me quite a bit. I wish the face mask was fragrance-free. If you’re sensitive to fragrance, don’t buy this. I don’t think I would buy it again after I finish the whole jar. It was nice to try it out, but I won’t be incorporating it in my skin care routine long term.

Love, Jen

New Makeup Products — elf!

Just a few days ago, I had a hard time adjusting to wearing makeup after being free of makeup for months. I wanted to get used to it again. I’ve been playing with makeup. I’m starting to feel more comfortable wearing makeup again. So I went out and purchased new makeup products that I needed to replace. This is what I bought.

The reason why I chose elf is because their makeup products are vegan and cruelty-free. Also, elf is a very inexpensive brand. The total for all of the makeup products listed was $9 plus tax. No joke. I do remember when elf used to sell their products for only $1. Those days are long gone. I didn’t want to shell out too much money on makeup. I’m more of a skin care fanatic than a makeup addict. My main focus is skin care. LOVVEEE!!

I haven’t purchased elf cosmetics in years. My past experience with elf cosmetics were not too great, but I decided to give it another chance. We will see how these products go. 😊 I really do hope they live up to my expectations. *fingers crossed*

Have you tried any of the makeup products listed above? Did they work for you? What are your thoughts on them? Share your experience!

Love, Jen
