Frank Body Review

A couple months ago I was pleasantly surprised to find a beautifully packaged pink and white box outside of my door. And inside the box was even more cute packaged goodies! Frank had paid me a visit and I was not mad about it. 🙂IMG_0122

I was sent the Frank Body original Coffee Body Scrub and Body Balm. First off let me just say I am a huge fan of these products because of their all natural and vegan ingredients.

Their body scrub is made with Coffee Beans, Almond Oil, Vitamin E oils and Sea Salt. And their body balm is a mixture of Coconut Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Coffee Arabica Seed Oil and Beeswax. All stuff that we can actually understand and I’m all about those natural ingredients!

So besides the cute packaging and amazing ingredients, the products themselves have worked wonders for my skin.

The Scrub
I have relatively normal skin with a few breakouts here and there and a little bit of hyperpigmentation. I would use the coffee scrub about 2x a week as a deep exfoliator. I can instantly notice the texture of my skin smoothens, my skin appears brighter and my face is baby soft. My random breakouts have gone down and my skin feels overall more healthy, and not to forget the smell is incredible!

I have recently started using the body scrub for a few stretch marks that I have developed, so I will definitely keep you posted with any results I see!

The Balm
The body balm is also a great product and very moisturizing. Though I would recommend only using it at night, as it does not soak into the skin very quickly. Since it has so many natural oils, it takes quite longer than a regular lotion to set. That being said, apply this stuff all over before bed and you will definitely have baby soft skin by the morning.

I am so in love with both of these products that I am itching to try some of their new stuff. Especially their peppermint body scrub, yum!!

Knowing When to Toss Your Makeup

It is easy to ignore the tiny symbols that are on your bottles, tubes, and containers of makeup. You probably have seen these markings hundreds of times as they appear on all of the products that you use. This includes toothpaste, shampoo, and nearly all of your makeup. However, as you are probably unaware of what it means, you tend to overlook it.

Actually, these little symbols are trying to tell us just how long we should use our makeup and beauty products for. Much like everything else, your makeup has an expiration date as well.

Thanks to dreammodels.dk for creating this helpful infograph!

Maybe it’s time to do a beauty product purge and get rid of those products you may not have known were out of date!

Favorite Face Masks

mask 3

I am a girl who loves trying new skin care products, especially face masks.

And I have found two exceptionally great facial masks that I’ve incorporated into my skin routine for the past couple of months, and I have noticed a HUGE difference!

mask 2

The first facial mask was one I picked up at a Hand and Stone spa, the Rehab Mediterranean Detoxifying Mud Mask.

This mask is very strong, so I usually do not cover my whole face but rather I use it like a spot treatment. If I am having a few problem areas, I use this mask on the particular spot, once a day for ten minutes. After a few days the problem has completely disappeared! This product was $25, but since I use it more like a spot treatment, this could last for around 6 months.

This next mask is one a few of you may be familiar with as it is one of The Body Shop’s top rated items. This tea tree face mask has such an amazing cooling effect on the skin and visibly reduces any redness on my skin instantly. I use this mask about twice a week, as it is perfect for those hot summer days when you want to cool down and relax.

I actually found out about this mask after purchasing a sample pack from the counter at Sephora. I love picking up a few small sample packs every time I stop by. It is a quick and cheap way to test out a product before deciding to purchase it.

 

 

Thanks!
