3 Face Treatments For The Skincare Junkie, Because We All Need A Little Glow Up After This Year

Skincare masks that will calm the breakouts from your COVID-19 masks.

3 Face Treatments For The Skincare Junkie, Because We All Need A Little Glow Up After This Year

2020 has certainly been the year of face masks - in more ways than one. Due to the constant wearing of my face mask that helps prevent getting COVID-19, I've noticed an increasing need to find face masks to add to my skincare routine so that I can undo the breakouts being caused by the medical masks. I have a membership with IPSY, a brand that allows you to customize your beauty needs and sends you products on a monthly basis. With that being said, I decided to make skincare a priority when choosing items for my monthly bag. Though I was hesitant at first, I ended up being very pleased with the results of the following skincare masks.

1. GENERATION SKIN Urban Defence Purifying Pink Australian Clay Mask - $30

Generation Skin's Pink Clay Mask has been one of my go-to products throughout the year. It includes Vitamins A and C, and works hard to cleanse dirt that is stuck beneath the pores. In my opinion, this is a relatively mild mask that works especially well on combination skin types (like myself). It does not dry out my cheeks, and it pulls dirt and oil from my t-zone effectively. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a simple mask with multiple benefits that can be used at various times throughout the week.

2. MUDMASKY Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask - $70

MUDMASKY's Purifying Recovery Mask is one of my favorite finds of 2020 by far. In my opinion, this mask does it all. It combines the benefits of being pore refining, hydrating, and anti-aging, all while brightening and smoothing skin. I rely on this mask to help remove dirt and oil from my pores after a long day of wearing a mask - especially if I am also wearing makeup. In comparison to other masks that I have tried, I really do feel like the Purifying Recovery Mask does a notable job of hydrating my skin. I never notice dryness after using it, and it serves as an exfoliant to any old skin on the face. Of course, IPSY only offers customers sample sized products in their bags, but I loved my sample so much that I went on to buy the large bottle. Though it is on the more expensive side, I truly feel that it is worth the splurge - especially considering the fact that a little goes a long way. All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone that is willing to listen.

3. GEORGETTE KLINGER Collagen & Elastin Mask - $32

Last - but certainly not least - we have the Collagen & Elastin Mask by Georgette Klinger. As you can see from the bottle, this product is very versatile because it works on almost all skin types. Collagen and elastin work to keep skin looking soft and supple, while lavender and avocado oils work to fight dryness. As a person with combination skin, I found this product to work very well for me. It struck a perfect balance of hydration and detoxing, and its lightweight texture made it breathable and comfortable to apply. I will say that this product has not been my go-to in terms of fighting an exceptionally bad breakout, but rather a nice pick-me-up for when my skin is looking clear. I would recommend this product to those with mild or infrequent breakouts, as well as to anyone who wants to add a bit of glow to their skincare routine.

Any of these masks would be the perfect gift for the skincare junkie in your life, but don't just stop there. If you're looking to show yourself a little love this holiday season, start by purchasing one of these masks.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
