How is everyone? Sending love to each one of you; we are all in this together (as Zac Efronn would say, in HSM) x
As the flirtatious line goes “how locking treating you…?” Feel free to drop me a message on my only social media platform Instagrammm for a little chat!
Right, I have decided to write up a long overdue eauty post; as we are all indoors, (well most of us), this is the perfect time for self-care! I have to be a huge self care geek to say, self care has always been my priority and should be yours too! You feel like your best self after a self care pamper session and you deserve it!
Recently face masks/eye masks comprise my favourite skincare category. Mention the word face mask and I’m up for it, anytime of the day 😉
You’ve always see my Instagram stories (dw if you haven’t you’re not missing out on my silly mask stories aha), a facemask is a love of mine! Ever since I was 13! Haha..No I’m not joking! I was highly educated on skincare and how to look after it, from what to use and muscle movements when you apply.. who’s your mother I hear you scream *HA. I’ve recently become even more obsessed with masks during lockdown, I mean no spas are open so I have to make do with what I’ve got. If you follow me over on Instagram (social plug @lovesxtine), you’ll know for sure I love love love face masks, (🥑) and (🥗 kale) everything from heated face masks, to kale boots own, charcoal and peel off masks. It’s quite sickening. Haha.. When I had received my * gifted box -Fabfitfun box, (received at my old house-long time ago and only recently opened it after moving out and eventually going through everything) genuine excitement spiralled from opening the box.
An ‘instagrammable’ gold eye mask, a new self care routine to be born? I think so. Hello new me, bye-bye eye bags.. Although, I had intensely researched eye masks, especially this one, I knew this would deliver the high expectations alongsid a fancy new gold look. Who am I?! Kim K is in the UK.. *sighs*
If a stunning Victoria Secrets model can use it, then it’s automatically good for me. Gold masks is co founded by the beauty co-founder and VS model of Wander, Lindsay Ellingson. Luxury beauty item to be reviewed; gold eye masks sound like a dreammm! Come at me hun, come. AT. ME!
In a packet, you receive six sets of gold masks (enough for a couple of months if you use a couple in a month) that are quite possibly the most Instagram-worthy under eye masks I have ever seen. It’s quite ridiculous! I am no way a gold-person, more silver if anything, but IDC, I am bougie right now! *pass the bucket for excessive oot comments* At under £4 a pair, you can feel bougie on a budget. #budgetbarbie!?
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks < site (gifted with fit box)
The aim of the game is to help reduce the appearance of dark circles by brightening the under eye area. I have had some bags during lockdown, who hasn’t? ALSO, I have turned 27 (pukeeee I sound so old hehe) my eyes are now undoubtely the main focus for me. EYES. My bags aren’t that gross, although, sometimes on the odd occasion they can look discoloured and quite dark; I still want bright under eyes and to see a difference. I mean, who wouldn’t? If under £4 per pack will make me have new under eyes, take the monzo card felicia!
This is me without makeup and before the red carpet gold mask routine haha..
“Due to its unique foil material, the mask locks in heat to allow the serum — which is formulated with a blend of 17 amino acids — to better absorb into the skin” Fabulous!
As researched, I believe the top layer is gold foil, which retains heat and locks the secret ingredients against your skin, then is elastic is formed in the middle, which holds the mask in place so it doesn’t slip and slide around your eye area (massive bonus girls). lastly, the bottom layer contains cellulose fiber which has hyaluronic acid (if you know you’ll be smiling), aloe leaf extract (obsessed with aloe vera from shots to moisturisers), and lavender oil deep into the skin. Wow! Side note: The masks do retain heat, yet the cooling effects of the aloe will help to de-puff the under eye area, which is a massive bonus! The masks actually stay on, they don’t slide off which is a godsend!
The Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks prove you can snag noticeable results and capture an #extra selfie, simultaneously. I got ultra excited, sorry #nerdmoment! I had to blog it, obviously (!)
Instructions for use the spa treatment for your eyesss!
- Clean and dry face before applying under the eyes- this is important friends!!
- Let sit for 10-15 minutes and massage remaining serum into skin and discard. I left mine for around 20 mins! -just to be on the safe side and soak in all the ingredients plus had a mini home shoot! (obviously)
- Take wonderful sexy photos, because you are a new person! 😉 Exactly.
Excuse the excessive photo selfies!
*Disclaimer: I was sent a fabfitfun box mid-late of last year before I moved house. Unfortunately I had misplaced it, but found it recently so I am posting the contents now! These are not in the latest box if you were wondering (hence back story) but you can purchase the box online and these masks on the wander site.
I was gifted the box and all contents!
