W.T.F – Shake & Shot?

I have been sitting in front of my screen for maybe 6-8 minutes now trying to find the words to explain this to you… this product is so creepy but fascinating at the same time.

Recently Sephora launched the DR JART+ line of Shake & Shot Rubber Masks. There are 4 masks available right now – hydrating, brightening, firming and soothing. Each mask is $15.00 and I only purchased the hydrating mask this weekend to test out before committing to testing the whole line.

To be completely honest, my first reaction was pure confusion and I was mildly disturbed by the packaging… it’s designed to look either like a child’s sippy cup or possibly a protein shaker and the top I’m pretty sure is a baby’s face with a straw in it’s mouth…?

Once I came to terms with the odd packaging I moved right onto the actual product. You’ll need to remove the “straw” from the baby’s mouth and inside the container is a spatula and 2 packages – labeled STEP 1 and STEP 2. Combining the 2 packages together in the cup wasn’t as messy as I thought it would be so I certainly appreciated that. Once both packages are emptied into the cup, seal the lid back on and cover the baby’s mouth with your finger while shaking the cup (seriously.. this is so weird!!) Once it is mixed, grab your spatula and start going to town on your face! There is A LOT of product in here and you cannot reuse it so you’ll need to apply a really thick layer on your face.

After about 20 minutes you can peel this right off your face – it will have a rubbery texture to it!  I have to admit… as completely unnerving as this product is, I’m kinda sorta loving it! My face felt so amazing after and I really could notice an immediate difference.

Have you tried these bizarre masks yet? Are you going to? I would love to hear your feedback so I don’t feel completely alone with this unusual product!

Being professional at work brings all sorts of career benefits. Think raises, promotions, even just respect from co-workers – who doesn’t want these things, am I right!?

The trick to sweet dreams.

I finally tried the magical lotion that has quickly become a cult favorite.

My arch nemesis? Sleep.

I have tried everything from melatonin chews, sleepy-time tea, white noise machines, soft music… the list goes on and on (and on and on)

So when Lush’s lavender-infused “Sleepy” location started flying off the shelves, at first I didn’t think anything of it. I’ve already tried dabbing lavender essential oil on my pillowcases approximately nine billion times. Sure, lavender is soothing and it smells nice. Everyone knows that.

But then the buzz about this so-called magical location kept growing. Originally designed to be  a limited edition, the demand was so high that Lush committed to keeping it on an ongoing basis. Naturally, I broke down and tried it out. And Continue reading “The trick to sweet dreams.”
