IpsyOS Events Part 1: Intro & Dermalogica

IpsyOS Events Part 1: Intro & Dermalogica
Did you know that Michelle Phan (co-founder of the uber popular subscription service Ipsy which has well over 1.5 million monthly subscribers) opened up her dream studio for up and coming beauty content creators last year? And that those creators could use that space for free?!?

No, you hadn’t?

Well, guess what?!?

I applied to and was excepted into IpsyOS

When I opened that email and saw that it said, “Hello Beautiful, Congrats” I seriously full on squealed!! (you know, like out loud) I was amazed that they thought my little piece of the internet was worthy.

And since I was accepted I have had the honor of attending 3 #ThirstyThursday events, 1 #WorkoutWednesday event, 1 #Cocktail Party for GenBeauty LA, and was given a complimentary #BeautyGuru #VIP pass for #GenBeauty LA!!

So just after a month after I was accepted into IpsyOS I attended my first event AT IpsyOS in Santa Moncia! This event was sponsored by Dermalogica and featured their new #CharcoaltotheRescue Charcoal Masque.
We were able to learn about how to use the other featured products and how often to use each based on our individual skin types. There was wonderful catered food and plenty of champagne, well the event IS called a #ThirstyThursday! [SIDE NOTE: Because I strongly believe in safe driving, I. Will. Never. Drink. One, Sip. Of. Alcohol. When. Driving. NOT EVER!]
Dermalogica also had the incredibly talented @persianpainter at the event to create gorgeous charcoal drawings of us. I still need to get a frame so I can better display this near my vanity. I cannot remember ever having a portrait/caricature drawn of me where the artist spent that amount of detail!

Towards the end of the event we were each given a generous goodie bag that contained ALL of the products that were being featured! Included in each attendee bag from Dermalogica was their Pre-Cleanse, Special Cleansing Gel, Charcoal Rescue Masque, Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque, Skin Hydrating Masque and the cutest grey headband perfect for keeping my hair out of my face while washing my face for applying makeup!
I am so appreciative to Dermalogica for putting on such a fun evening. I was a bit nervous with this being my first event, but the majority of attendees and all of the IpsyOS and Dermalogica staff that I met were amazing!

Have you used Dermalogica? If so, what is your favorite product? And if not, what product would you want to try most?

All the best,

Review: Adovia Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask

Review:  Adovia Dead Sea Facial Mud Mask

Hi Lovelies,

Recently, I had the opportunity of trying out Adovia’s Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask. I was immediately drawn to applying for this campaign as this line is made in Israel. Whenever possible, I prefer to purchase products made in Israel as I feel it is a small thing I can do to support the only Jewish country.

The mud found in the Dead Sea has been long sought after as having great skincare benefits. TrustedOnlineStore is the name of the seller on Amazon says that:

“Facial Mask Tightens and Purifies Pores leaving Clear, Younger Complexion Dead Sea Mud Quickly Reduces Acne and Pimples Over 21 Minerals Present in Dead Sea Mud Mask help to keep skin healthier and act as acne treatment A facial Dead Sea Mud Mask Facial Treatment in Spas cost from $70-120. This Mask contains 30 Sessions! Can be Used as Spot treatment & Blackhead Remover.”



I’m loving this facial mask and it is so easy to use! I just spread a thin layer over clean skin and let dry for 10-20 or so minutes before rinsing off. My skin feels so refreshed, smooth, and soft afterwards. Once completely dry I used toner followed by a vitamin C serum and moisturizer. I find that my face feels just the same the following morning!

I have chronically dry skin and so I’m quite prone to flaky dry patches that makes ANY makeup look cake-u and obviously look like I’m wearing makeup. Because of this I use an exfoliating face wash daily and like to use (various) masks a few days a week. I alternate between a deep(er) exfoliating masks and hydrating masks. I’d say this one falls somewhere in between.


Ingredient list

The exfoliating mask I use has ‘micro-beads’ the provide the somewhat ‘rough’ particles that actually do the exfoliating whereas the hydrating one is extra thick and creamy. This Adovia Dead Sea Facial Mud Mask doesn’t have a ‘rough’ surface like my other one does, yet it still manages to remove the same amount of dead skin while still managing to not dry out my skin further.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a great (and easy) mask to use at home to pamper your skin. It is a much more affordable way to pamper ones skin than running out to an expensive spa. If you are interested in purchasing this you can do so on Amazon by clicking HERE. Each tube contains approximately 30 uses for just $30 which is only $1 per use while other similar products easily cost 2-4 times this!

I’d LOVE the hear from you as to whether you follow a skincare regimen? Why or why not? If you do, do you use facial masks?
