Product description: This is a viscous black liquid, about the consistency of Elmer's glue, with a slightly "clean" scent to it. It's a similar product to other liquid/gel peel-off masks.
Application: It's pretty messy to spread on your face, and takes a bit of washing to get off of your fingers. It's important to wait til the mask is fully dry, or you'll end up with plenty of black goop on your face. And even if you try to apply it evenly, the edges seem to stick to my face.
Efficacy: It does peel off your old skin cells, so yes, your skin does look a little "fresher." I didn't notice any lasting effects on my pore size, oily skin or blackheads, but it did seem to help temporarily, much like a pore strip would. I was actually surprised to see that there seemed to be more "stuff" pulled out of my skin with the peel-off mask than there are with pore strips! So it is doing something, although looking at my skin, the effect is barely noticeable. I'm torn on how "effective" I feel that it is--it meets its claims to an extent (getting rid of oil, dead skin cells, etc), and there seems to be a lot of stuff pulled out, which I can see on the pull-off mask (ew, but kinda cool, right?). But my skin and pores don't seem to be noticeably different?
Packaging: It comes in a squeeze tube with a flip top cap. It's handy for easily opening the tube and getting out more product, but can get a little messy.
Value: $26 seems a little pricey to me. While they claim you can get "dozens of applications" out of just one bottle, I think that would depend on whether you're doing a full face application, or just parts of your face (like your T-zone). Pore strips aren't cheap either though, and I feel like the various brands of pore strips I've used in the past weren't quite as good at removing stuff from my pores as the peel-off mask is.
Love it or leave it? This one's a toughie. Not everyone loves/needs pore strips or products that will pull the stuff outta your pores. I personally like that kind of product, and I think the Leonie one is a decent option, although it's messy.

Have you ever done a relay? If you're a runner, I definitely recommend putting it on your bucket list! It's unlike any other kind of race. You run and run and run, barely sleep, eat a lot of Clif bars, live in a van, and use smelly Portapotties for two days. Doesn't that sound awesome?! It's my fourth year doing Hood to Coast relay and it's been incredible every year (my vanmates were super awesome, so that helped a lot!). We're thinking about doing a different relay next year... maybe Ragnar? Epic Oregon Relay? Also, I'm thinking we need some sponsors
. That would just be awesome.
Anyway, here are some pics from this year's Hood to Coast
relay! I was runner 7, and did a total of 16.21 miles split between three legs. I was battling a cold/laryngitis, and worried that I'd have knee issues, but the race went pretty well!
We got cozy, because this was our home for two days! This year we had an SUV instead of a van, and it was AWESOME.
Every year, our van has stopped at Dairy Queen somewhere along the course. Other teams were jealous.
Having fun, being easy-going, and supporting your teammates are key parts of a relay! There are so many unexpected challenges that come up (traffic, etc.) that going with the flow makes it a lot more fun. Having awesome teammates who will make a tunnel for you to run through is good too.
Visor? Check. Water belt? Check. Bib? Check. Plush dinosaur? ... check? Gageasaurus was my pillow.
The finish line! YAYYYYY!!!

Gently exfoliating sugar softens skin before melting away. Grape seed, sweet almond, argan, and golden jojoba oils nourish, sooth, and moisturize skin. Housed in a decorative plastic jar, it's safe to keep in the shower and won't shatter if dropped. Directions: Stir to mix. After shower or bath apply to wet skin and gently massage in. When desired level of exfoliation has been reached, rinse well. Skin will be left polished and lightly scented. Blithe: The lightest of our fragrances, Blithe teases the senses with hints of eucalyptus, lavender and grapefruit. Bright, without over stimulation. Gently floral without being cloying. This is a scrub for those who enjoy subtlety and find joy in serenity.
This smells GREAT. It's subtly floral and citrusy but not overwhelming. I would agree with the description that it is a subtle and calming fragrance. I love that this leaves my skin incredibly soft and moisturized all day after using it. The included little wooden scoop is ADORBS, and fun to use as well. As with many body scrubs in a tub, this can leave an oily residue in your tub or shower (warning: super slippery!). The label is just a regular paper label, so it does start to get a little soggy and icky in the shower. But the biggest downside is the price ($27.99 for 16 oz of scrub is a bit much), especially when combined the shipping and tax, which was almost $10 for one container, for a total of about $47. Despite the pricetag, it's a fab product.
My second mud run ever, and Cari's first. The Spartan Sprint was 3.5mi of hills and challenging obstacles and burpees... It was HARD. But I kinda wanna do it again next year. AROO!
Somebody at work got this for me!
Music, beer and sunshine at the zoo. <3

Product description (color/dupes): I tested this in Sand. Unfortunately, I did a poor job picking and Sand is just a bit too dark for my NC30-35ish skin. However, the undertones of Sand are nice and warm/golden, just a smidge neutral, so when I get a little darker this summer, it'll be perfect.
Pigmentation: This has medium pigmentation but is a bit buildable without being cakey.
Texture: Very smooth.
Application: You can use the included sponge or your hands. I don't like using my fingers because it's messy.
Length of Wear: I was very surprised and quite impressed to find that this tinted moisturizer creme product #1, didn't oxidize, and #2, didn't turn my face into a shiny mess. Even after a full day at work and then a workout!
Packaging: A smidge bulky but the included sponge and mirror make up for it, since they're both actually pretty useful.
Value: Depending on the amount of coverage you need, this could get to be a little spendy. It's a nice product to have in your purse for quick, on-the-go makeup.
Love it or leave it? This is really a pretty good product that I would imagine could work for just about anyone! It worked well on my oily skin, but wasn't drying, so I'd imagine that it's pretty universal.
