Drink Up Intensive (Origins)


I’m still ridiculously obsessed with sleeping facials/masks. I mean, think about it. You put the mask on, go to sleep, wake up, give your face a light rinse and boom, incredibly hydrated, luminous skin.

Mask of Magnaminty

A minty miracle mask from Lush Cosmetics. Mask of Magnaminty (say THAT 5 times fast!) can be used not only on your face, but also on your neck, back, and chest, to deep clean, exfoliate and get all the ick out.

Immortelle Cream Mask

I will literally put ANYTHING that L’Occitane puts out in this Immortelle line (full disclosure– while I THINK it’s a flower for anti-aging, mama don’t know, mama don’t care– this shizz is GOOOOD). The Immortelle Face Mask is definitely not cheap, at $62, but it’s a must for any dry or flaky gals, and is heavenly for treating the skin during the rough winter months.


Ever had one of those pimples that engulfed your entire face? One that basically moved in and took over your entire life? Well, I don’t break out often, but when I do, that’s the situation, and I need to call in the big guns. Tarte Amazonian Clay Double Detox will zap whatever monstrosity has claimed it’s own zip code on my face, plus make my skin look clearer and toned. Bam, you win again, Tarte!

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

Just say yes to charcoal! It’s super for drawing toxins out of your skin and it’s just a messy good time to use. Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask is one of those peel-off deals, which is a blast, and leaves your skin, yes.. luminous. (Keep it around to scare your friends!)

Ghassool Moroccan Lava Clay

$22 for 9 oz jar , which can last a few months. I broke up with Mask of Magnaminty once I found Ghassool. It ‘s straight dirt, well clay , but my skin has never felt softer than after I use this mask.

AmorePacific Moisture Bound Vitalizing Masque

This is the FUTURE, PWs: Sleeping Facials. You throw a mask on, go to sleep, and in the morning, BOOM, you’re Scar-Jo! Needless to say, I had to try one. I was pleased as punch when Sephora threw a double deluxe sample of AmorePacific’s Moisture Bound Vitalizing Masque.

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

Three things have been proven to power me through a sluggish day: a quad soy latte, a quick morning stroll with my pup, and 10 minutes with this extremely tingly and tightening powerhouse called GLAMGLOW. Your skin will feel wonderful for the rest of the day, and the treatment has lasting effects of clearing up blemishes and brightening dull skin. ZING!

Love Lettuce

Here’s what a Sunday night looks like at my home: a glass of something red, my laptop, a cuddle with the pup, some Breaking Bad (RIP), and a face full of Lush’s Love Lettuce face mask. it’s made fresh and kept in the fridge, like produce. Ground almonds scrub like crazy (they’re not kidding around, it’s borderline abrasive) when you remove it, and there’s chlorophyll to make all of your Wicked fantasies come true. A total winner for under a tenner.
