I recently bought a new sheet mask set from the "Dermal Korea Collagen Full Face Facial Mask Sheet" brand. They are a sheet mask so it is a sheet of fabric that is soaked in the essence and it stays on your skin for about 15 minutes while it dries.
I used the Royal Jelly mask this time and I must say I am impressed with just the application. These masks have slits cut into the sides so that you can better adjust them to fit your face.
The nose section is folded up a little so that you can put the flap down over the edge of your nose...much like other sheet masks.
What stands out for me is that the eye area has a flap that you can fold UP to place under the eye to allow more product to get into that under eye area. I have not seen this on any other sheet mask I have used so this is a great feature.
You get 16 of these for $12 so that is a pretty good deal and they came really quickly, even for being an international shipment!
It felt moisturizing on the skin and it was cooling when I put it on.
I will definitely repurchase because I am so into sheet masks now and it works well.

I just found this unofficial guide to being a man and I thought some of the tips were really funny but some were just bizarre. If you want to read the full list you can find it here.
Here were some I liked:
Here were some that I am not so sure about:

I just found what I think is a really AWESOME tutorial for homemade bath bombs. You can find the post here so check it out if you would like to make them at home.
I am actually going to follow this recipe later this month when we get out of school because it is expensive to buy bath bombs all the time...and I don't even get the LUSH brand!
We will be on Christmas break and I will be taking a LOT of baths so I may as well invest in a few dollars worth of ingredients to save some money while having awesome baths.

I have a new obsession: Bath Bomhs!!! Yes I now love taking baths to relax...although I maintain taking showers to REALLY get clean.
I am starting a new routine where I will take baths on the weekends so that I can relax. This will only be at nights because I need to take a shower in the mornings to get ready.
The baths will also be only on weekend days that I have stayed at home. The reason for this is that after a long day of being out and about I do not want to sit soaking in a lovely bath and have the dust and dirt of the day stewing in there with me. I will take a bath on a day when I have not gone out..meaning I have already taken a shower in the morning so I start off clean, but stayed home all day so I don't have dirt and dust from outside.
On to the review!
I bought these bath bombs from Amazon and they are not listed with a specific brand name. The box shown above is the way the bombs come packaged. The letters stand for Oliver Robert, who is the seller but I am not sure if the brand of the bath bombs is Oliver Robert.
It comes in a package with 6 individually wrapped Extra Large bath bombs. Those things are HUGE!!!! I was really impressed by the size...yes, size DOES matter!
They are 4.5 oz each, which is MUCH larger than other regular bath bombs. They fizz for about a full minute to a minute and a half before dissolving completely in the bath and really provide a relaxing experience. They do NOT produce bubbles, so I added bubble bath while the tub was filling up.
- Grapefruit Tangerine
- Black Raspberry Vanills
- Cool Water
- Cucumber Melon
- Moonlight Rose
I used the Grapefruit Tangerine one below because I heard rave reviews from another blogger about it. This is an awesome scent if you like citrusy smells and I must say I was impressed.
I have not used the others as yet, but I can tell just from sniffing the packaging that they are all as great as the first one!

Over at another blog I read there is a giveaway for a free Chin Up Mask. You should head over to How I Save Money and read the post.
From what I have heard it is an awesome product and you can lose up to 1cm of chin fat and saggy skin.
The package contains a mask that is full of skin tightening serums, along with a firming strap to keep things in place.

So I just found my new throw-in-your-purse snack and I must say I am pretty pleased. I have been searching for something I can take with me that also tastes good for those random days when I need something to eat.
I also wanted something I could maybe leave in the car without it becoming a horrible mess in the heat.
Normally I do not like granola bars because they tend to be dry and hard but these KIND bars are anything but! I also find granola to taste dry and chalky but these bars taste awesome.
I bought a pack of the Oats and Honey flavor on a whim and I must say I was hooked from the first bite. The texture is a bit different from other granola bars I have tried in the past, with more of a quinoa look to the bars with little bits of oats.
About a week later I tried the Salted Caramel flavor but I must say I was not impressed by that one. I thought it would taste more like salt or caramel but there was not really much taste going on. I think I will stick to the Oats and Honey one, because the flavor is noticeable, but not overpowering.

I have been wondering when the best time to apply a facial mask would be. I am sure many of you wonder the same thing and a search of the internet shows people are clearly divided.
Some people think you should apply a mask before you clean your face and others believe you should apply the mask after you clean.
Those in the Mask First-Wash Second camp say you should apply the mask first because then your cleansing routine will wash off all traces of the mask.
Those in the Wash First- Mask Second camp say you should apply the mask to clean skin so it can have the full effect.
I personally believe in Wash First-Mask Second because I agree that the mask needs to sit on your clean skin to give the most benefit.
Personally I am currently using the Freeman Pineapple enzyme mask which is also a mild exfoliator. I wash my face with my cleanser first and then when the skin is nice and clean I will apply the mask in a circular motion.
I then let it sit for about 7 minutes so it can dry a little...then moisten my fingers and resume the circular scrubbing motion before washing off.
How do you apply your mask?
