I don't really like using masks, I prefer scrubs cause scrubbing does not involve sitting still for 10-15 minutes and not talking at all. Also I hate the feeling when the mask dries, I feel like my skin is about to come off, haha, yes I know I have some serious issues. I heard so much about these Freeman clay masks and decided to try them for myself.
The mask has a pretty thick, tooth paste kind of texture, but is easy to blend evenly. Due to its thick texture, you need quite a lot of amount if you're going to apply it to your face and the neck. Both the masks are pale green is color. A lot of people loves how these masks smells, but I'm not a fan of it. I mean I don't hate the smell but it just irritate me a little bit. 
Avoid using too much, 'cause the more you apply to your face the more time it will take to dry.
Once it's dry, wash it off with luke warm water. It comes off easily and does not stick to my hairline like most of the masks. I hate when little particles stick to my hair and then I have to wash my hair to get them out.
This mask can be applied to the face and the neck but I just can't stand the idea of not moving my neck at all. Just the thought of it makes me claustrophobic. I only apply it to the face and love how quickly it dries. The mask takes maximum 10 minutes to dry.
It removes the dead skin cells and leaves my skin super soft and gives and instant brightening effect.  
I've got dry and sensitive skin and I've noticed that the Lemon & Mint clay mask is very drying and dry patches appeared around the nose and forehead after using it and I had to moisturize right away. I recommend people with oily to combination skin to give it s dry, they might like it as it would absorb the excess oil off their face. I've used it quite a few times now and did not feel any difference with my pores but love the fact that it didn't break out my skin.
So for the winters, I prefer using the Oatmeal & Avocado clay mask as my skin does not feel tight after using it. It feels soft and I can't stop touching my face. ugh.
You must try it yourself to see the results.

Facial Moisturizing Cleanser Kiwi & Yogurt

About the Product
A silky cream cleanser with non-dairy Yogurt and crisp Kiwi cleans without drying out skin. Perfect for normal to dry skin. It's a super hydrating smoothies for skin.

Massage gently onto damp skin. Rinse with warm water. Use morning and night.
Key Ingredients:
Kiwi Fruit Extract
Yogurt Extract
Aloe Leaf Juice
Ingredient List:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Yogurt Protein, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract , Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract , Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Psidium Guajava Fruit Extract , Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract , Maranta Arundinacea Root Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Extract , Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Aleurites Moluccana Extract, Propylene Glycol, Emulsifying Wax NF, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Carbomer, Sodium Polyacrylate, Sodium Hydroxide, Tetrasodium EDTA , Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance (Parfum), Blue 1 (CI 42090), Yellow 6 (CI 15985), Benzyl Benzoate, D-Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde.
I've been using The Body Shop Cucumber Cleansing milk for asvery long time now and it works pretty well for my skin. But I can say that this cleanser is my new favorite. Like I mentioned before I've got dry skin and it gets unbelievably dry during the winters, this cleanser gently removes any impurities off my skin without drying it out. When it comes to removing makeup, it does a good job at removing the makeup off my face except for the eyes.

As you can see from the picture below, it has a creamy and slightly runny consistency. You only need a dime sized amount for your face and the neck.
I am a huge fan of yogurt when it comes to skin products. Yogurt works like magic if you apply it directly to your skin by adding few drops of lemon juice in it or any product that has yogurt in it. And the only reason I tried this cleanser is that it has yogurt and kiwi in it.

Did you know kiwi is loaded with vitamin C, dietary fibers and antioxidants which helps in boosting your skin's health and making the skin youthful and flexible. (hello new best friend).
What I do is I gently massage my skin with the cleanser, use cotton pads to wipe it off. And then wash it with warm water after half an hour.
All in all this cleanser is suitable for all skin types and I highly recommend it to people with dry skin specially during the winters.  Also, it doesn't smell bad.

OOTD | Hello December

Hello everybody, hope you're doing well.
December has finally arrived, which means 30 more days till New Year. Yay yay! I couldn't be any happier.
This year 2014 has been aaahh-mazing. pfft, just kidding. Wish I could say that but this year has not exactly been a fun and exciting year for me. I'm really looking forward to 2015 and really hope that the next year is better *fingers crossed*
So I dressed up today. Yes, that feels like an accomplishment when you spend your days in pajamas and oversized t-shirts. Even though I strongly believe that pajama days are a must in order to have a truly happy life and I really wish I could get a job where I can work from home in my pajamas. Oh well. But today I dressed up 'cause I was celebrating the last month of 2014.
I went out today and got my caffeine fix at Gloria Jeans and wore this sparkly sweater that I got from Breakout last year. It's a comfy over sized sweater.
Did I mention I'm excited for new year? (yeah. stop. now)
I wore a dark brown t-shirt underneath the sweater and paired it with my black pants. I've owned this pair of pants for like 5 years and love wearing it everyday 'cause they're just so comfy.
I added a statement necklace and my new favorite mustache watch. This is my second favorite watch, 'cause nothing can beat the boyfriend watch.
The whole outfit was pretty much neutral colored, so for a pop of color I chose this blue clutch. It's velvet and looks super classy paired with anything.

Always on Instagram and Pinterest. When I get bored, I search food pictures and swoon over it, haha. (Don't judge) 

That's it for this post :) what's your must have accessory for Fall?
Thanks for reading xoxo
