Introducing a new awesome face mask from myfaceworks!

Dry, dull skin is a thing of the past! Rejuvenate thirsty skin with the intense hydration of myfaceworks NEW I Need to Replenish facial mask. I Need to Replenish is the perfect addition to complement the skincare regime of any normal skin type with dry tendencies.

This skin quenching mask is packed with potent ingredients to repair, reverse and prevent any future cellular damage in the skin. Sodium Hyaluronate improves skin’s appearance by smoothing out wrinkles while Imperata Cylindrica Extract optimizes collagen synthesis and moisture absorption in the skin. Glycerine is an emulsifier and skin softener that helps retain the skin’s moisture.

These concentrated ingredients are soaked in a soft and light sheet of 100% silk fabric. The transparent netted structure provides superb hydration benefits while accelerating the absorption process of the serum into the skin.

I’ve used this mask 2-3 times already, and I love it. What I do, is put one on when I’m laying in the bath. It’s just so relaxing. I close my eyes, relax in the bath – and let the mask do it’s job. What’s nice is there isn’t as much clean up as a regular face mask. You can feel it tingling and working as you relax. It leaves your skin feeling so clean and healthy. I don’t know how they do it, but it’s a great – great mask. I can’t wait to use it again!

$55 seems like a lot to spend at once on a face mask, but when you consider that it’s for 6 masks, that’s less than $10 a pop! That’s so great!!

The Ultimate Self-Tanner Guide!

Hopefully everyone will be putting on sunblock this summer, rather than tanning oils. With all of the warnings about the sun, and the damage it can cause your skin, being tan comes at a price! Why put your health on the line for a little tan?

Have you tried many self-tanners? I’ve tried a couple, and I’m usually not a fan. It’s hard to get a natural looking tan from a bottle. But the awesome staff at Glamour Magazine tried most of the self-tanners out there, and they’ve come up with a list of 9 products that actually work!

Guerlain Terracotta Huile du Voyageur Nourishing Dry Oil SPF 8 For a dewy beach-ready look, slick on this tinted, gold-flecked body oil over your usual SPF lotion before you head outside. At $60 a pop, it may be pricey, but one bottle will last you from June to August.

Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs This little $10 bottle is one genius beauty multitasker: It tans you up in days and smooths legs fast.

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Lotion Planning a staycation this season? Try this slightly shimmery lotion—which should be applied daily to build a subtle, natural color—for an I-summer-in-Saint-Tropez kind of glow. ($11, ulta.com)

Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer Afraid of making a mess in your bathroom? Try a drip-free mousse product like Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer for an even, pretty base. ($8, at drugstores)

Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion For an extra-sexy tan, slather on Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion. It glimmers, in a good way. ($20, bloomingdales.com)

Fusion Beauty GlowFusion Face and Body Natural Protein Tan This beauty-insider favorite has developed a cult following for its subtle scent and gently bronzed finish. ($58, sephora.com)

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Golden Perfection Self-Tanning Milk for Body Need to get a goddess glow in a flash? Estée Lauder’s miracle-working Self-Tanning Milk starts to show color in an hour. ($27, bloomingdales.com)

Lancôme’s Flash Bronzer Airbrush For an easy transition into skimpy summer tops and dresses, spritz on Lancôme’s Flash Bronzer. It’s easy to mist on and leaves a totally streakless, natural color. ($28, lancome.com)

Victoria’s Secret Bare Bronze Shimmering Body Oil While the gorge Victoria’s Secret swimsuit models may have been blessed with good genes, it’s this light oil that gives their skin that silky, drool-worthy sheen. Apply this shimmering lotion to give your bod a slight bronze tint—and prepare for the “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” pickup lines to roll right in. ($24, victoriassecret.com)
