ADOVIA MUD MASK REVIEW


Hello loves! I was sent this mud mask a couple weeks ago to review for you all and give my honest opinion. I am a skincare junkie so I was pretty excited to try this out. Surprisingly I've never used a mud mask so I wasn't sure what to expect. 

This purifying mud mask has dead sea minerals, aloe vera, and vitamin c in it. Some other interesting ingredients include: beeswax, evening primrose, and jojoba oil. This mask is supposed to boost cell renewal, revitalize the skin and tighten pores. The dead sea mud infuses the skin with minerals and improves elasticity. 

The directions say to apply a layer to clean skin for 10-20 minutes or until it's dry. To see optimal results the packaging also says to use it once a week or as needed. 

The consistency of this mask is very creamy and easy to apply which I appreciate. I've tried many masks, and often times they are hard to apply. Next, for some reason this mask would barely harden onto my skin. I have oily skin so this may be a factor, however none of my other masks have had this issue and the packaging says it's for all skin types. I may take into consideration that it has been humid in my room lately due to the weather. When washing this mask off I didn't have any trouble mainly because it really didn't harden that much. My skin felt smooth and moisturized unlike other masks which typically make my skin feel dry afterwards. 

Overall I didn't see any huge benefits from using this product. For me it's what I would use if I was bored and wanted to have a spa day. It didn't help with any breakouts and I don't think my pores are any smaller than before. I wouldn't recommend this if you have my skin type, but maybe it would work well for someone else. 

You can find this mud mask below on amazon if you're interested.

WEEKEND WANDERER





Over the weekend I decided to visit a park located right by my apartment. It's been closed off for months due to the weather, but now since it's finally warm it's open. I love going to new places and exploring, even if it's just a park. You never know what you may discover or who you will meet along the way. With that being said I did meet a man that was...rather interesting is how I'll put it!It was also a nice time to just reflect on life. I honestly fear growing up and adjusting to adulthood has been overwhelming. I saw a sign that mentioned enrolling into middle school, and thought to myself "wow I remember when I went through this." It's crazy to think about how when I was younger I wanted to be older, and now that I'm older I want to be a kid again. I guess this reinforces to appreciate where you are in life because it doesn't last forever. Every age has its ups and downs.

All the memories I have as a child and thinking back to what I aspired to be then is crazy to reflect on. I thought I would be nurse and living somewhere near my hometown, but that's definitely not the case. I always hated when people would ask,"where do you see yourself in five years?" I just sit there and think, "I don't even know what I'm having for dinner!"  I know it's good to have a plan so you have something to focus on, but sometimes life takes you on another path. I'm also the type to stress out about the future and things that are out of my control. Now I take things day by day, but I do always have the future in mind when I am making decisions.

I don't want my fears and worries to hinder me or distract me from fulfilling my purpose on this earth. I know many of us don't like to think about it, but no ones time on this earth is forever. This doesn't mean to make irrational decisions and behave recklessly, but it does mean to chase your dreams and live life to the fullest. Trust in God and the process. Live and let go. Worrying never solves anything.






Have a Wonderful Day!
