This mask is just in time for summer! With the warmer weather my skin turns to an oil slick in no time at all and that leads to breakouts which just isn’t a good thing when its too warm for makeup. The Murad InstaMatte Oil-Control Mask is a summer must have. I just apply the mask wait three minutes and rinse and right away my skin looks smoother, and oil free with no tightness or irritation. I love that this works right away and that it keeps my skin looking good all day and I am not fighting a mid day oil slick on my t zone.

Murad InstaMatte™ Oil-Control Mask 3.4 FL. OZ.
This deep-cleansing, 3-minute mask is formulated to help immediately dissolve excess oil that can lead to breakouts. It helps treat and prevent breakouts while minimizing the appearance of pores. The result is a healthier-looking, matte complexion. It can also be used as a cleanser for daily oil-control.
Reduces 93% of excess oil after just one use* based on a Murad sponsored study.

Murad’s proprietary Oil-Control Complex® instantly absorbs excess oil and provides a long-lasting matte finish. Salicylic Acid helps clear and prevent breakouts for a clearer, healthier-looking complexion, while Grapefruit Extract helps tighten the appearance of pores and refresh skin. Combine with Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 for maximum oil-control.

This has been my favorite for the last two summers. It’s a great moisturizer that keeps my skin hydrated and feeling great and manages to banish shine all day long. Along with SPF15 this is a triple threat that is a must have this summer. I just need a bit to cover my whole face and it stays smooth and matte all day long with no tightness or dryness.

Father’s Day Gift: Robert Graham Collector’s Travel Set in Courage

robert graham  courage packaging 

 

If you want to spoil the man in your life this Father’s Day look no further than the Robert Graham Collector’s Traveler Sets. The The scents are Courage (pictured), Valour, and the Fortitude. These amazing scents are a stand out and he will love wearing them. I had the chance to check out the Courage scent and first thing I noticed was the amazing packaging. The fragrance comes in a great box designed with old maps and the interior slides out revealing the travel case and fragrance.

The travel case is a heavy metal construction and was inspired by an antique hourglass. The top is attached by strong magnets you just pull it off and slide the scent inside. Your man will have an amazing fragrance perfect for his gym or travel bag. I really love the Courage scent its very masculine with tops notes of Vodka and finishes off with hints of whisky and wood. The scent was inspired by the finest Scotch blend whiskeys, and its creator Robert Stock blended and aged fragrances until he found the perfect one. The man in your life will love wearing the scent as much as you love smelling it on him.
