The kids are back in school which means the Fall morning chill is nipping at me. Terrycloth slippers give a warm caress to feet that are mildly shocked from the cool wood floor. Geesh! flip flops are a close but distant memory. Both my mind and skin can use some Fall at home pampering, even if it's just a quick hand treatment. The fact that relaxation, although for a short moment, is still an option is just... *slooooow exhale* So, as soon as the yellow bus is completely out of my peripheral, I do an amazing olympic back flip (don't believe that for one minute!) However, I am liable to do some indescribable body jerk or an MJ spin as I grab my Khreativ Soy Kandle in Spa day. There is nothing like an aromatic laundry session. I kid, I kid! The only thing these hands will be doing is enjoying a quick cuticle treatment from the warm soy as my senses are soothed with a calming balance of lemongrass, black currant, patchouli and sugar.
*sips coffee* How are you relaxing into Fall? What are your favorite Fall scents?

The Mask Sheet
When you live in a house with little boys, the scarier a beauty treatment makes you, the cooler you are. In fact, if it's a quiet relaxing moment I'm looking for then I must hide to avoid the barrage of "who I should scare next" and" how I can look scarier" ideas. I'm a big fan of masks so I decided to try the cool Purederm Green Tea Essence mask from Natural Radiance. Natural Radiance is a leader in providing Korean beauty products, inclusive of BB creams, makeup and skincare. The premoistened sheets have just enough juice to make the mask stay put without any dripping or messy application. My six year old was every bit of intrigued. He had some questions and I'm sure you would have asked the same...
6yr old: "Mom, what's that?" *asking and touching are synonymous*
6yr old continues: "Oh, it's soft! and wet. What's in it?"
*shoos his hand away before he pulls on the mask*
Me: "It's a face mask that will moisturize my skin and..."
* interrupts with wide eyed curiosity*
6yr old: "YOU'RE GOING TO LOOK DIFFERENT?!!"
Me: "No (lol) it's going to soften my skin and brighten it up a bit (i hope!) It has green tea, licorice root and vitamins in it."
*As I list ingredients, I see disinterest looming so I interject*
Me: "so, it's like food for the skin."
*light bulb moment or a fine idea for a way to escape from my presence twinkles in his eye*
6yr old: "ooooooh!" *pause & giggles* "You look like a super hero!"
Me: "really? what should my name be?"
6yr: *shrugs* "I don't know but you look COOL!"
So, There you have it a mask that makes you look cool AND keeps you pretty (the final verdict from the 6 yr old). A gentleman in training, indeed! I would definitely try more of the masks. My skin was really soft for three days after use. The only issue with this product was the lifting around the jawline but I take responsibility for that. I didn't align the mask well, it was too high on my hairline. Natural Radiance has tons of skincare options for all skin types, needs, and/or concerns on their site and right now, PUREDERM FACE MASKS ARE $1. Yes, you read that right. Follow Natural Radiance on Twitter and Facebook for updates on new products and more great discounts.
Me, the Superhero! LOL
