ToGoSpa Face Mask and Eyes

Hey!

So I got some pretty awesome facial products from ToGoSpa.

I tend to be on the minimal side when it comes to makeup and facial products. 1) I have no clue how to buy or use makeup. 2) I have super sensitive skin so I tend to stay away from face creams, products, etc.

However, I was offered to try some of these products, including the Face Mask and “Eyes” by To Go Spa, and was told they were perfect for all skin types. So I decided to give it a try.

The face mask gave me a chuckle, I will not lie. It reminded me of the movie Mrs. Doubtfire with the mask and the cutouts for the face. However, once I took it out of the package, the “cutouts” of the face were easily moldable to my face.

So the facemask feels a little weird on, you can’t really talk, and have to stay a little still cause it does slip a little bit. It feels kind a little wet jellyfish on your face or like some type of Jell-O, since it is both “gooey” but “stiff”.

Once I put it on I kind of smoothed it out on my skin that way it fit and it does stick well for the most part. You have to keep adjusting it a tad because it does slip off unless you are laying  completely  flat for about 30 to 45 minutes. I was doing computer work while using it… I’m a busy grad student!

When I took it off, my face felt clean and “tight”, but moisturized. It felt smooth, and smiled great and fresh. The next time I use this (came in a pack of 3 for me), I will take full advantage of the “soothing” properties and lay down and RELAX!!!

For the under eyepatches, they came in 4 varieties. Coconut, Pomegranate, Green Tea, and ICE. Here is the back of the Pomegranate package.

You can observe the patch above, the thicker portion of the crescent goes medially, by your nose, and then it fans out. They do slip a bit while using, due to gravity, but easily adjustable (but better used laying down).

Like I said, I am in grad school so I get very little sleep and I will say that the patches definitely helped my under eye circles when I was looking really puffy.

Obviously there’s no miracles being worked here, you are putting a cold compress on, and you’re constricting the blood vessels underneath your eye reducing the puffiness, but have this benefit of it having all these other soothing ingredients for your skin.

I have sensitive skin and I haven’t had any problems when I use the products and I will say decrease some of the puffiness/left my skin looking fresh.

Overall, I like them! I think the eye patches are handy to use before going out, or if you pull one too many all nighters and need something that sticks and is soothing for those under eye puffiness.I liked the feeling of my skin after using the face mask. Smooth, and fresh! 4 stars.

CapriClear 100% Coconut Oil Spray

Hello!

So I got a free sample of Capri Clear 100% Coconut Oil Spray to try out. I was interested to try this, especially since it was eczema approved and for dry/sensitive skin. I have VERY sensitive skin. The only creams I use are usually from Burt’s Bees, made with natural ingredients, or other  brands that are designed from sensitive skin. I also never used an oil spray for a moisturizer before, so I thought this would be interesting. Here are some facts:IMG_9709So as you can see, no fragrance, no colors, no mineral oil, no preservatives, etc. It is 100% coconut oil in “the purest form” in a bottle. It comes out as a very light mist, and is easy to pump/no clogging. I first did my legs right after a shower so I could test how well it works.  It was definitely “weird” to me, since I always used creams, to apply an oil. If you don’t spray enough, it’s hard to spread into your skin, but of course, if you apply too much, you can have an oily texture. Luckily the spray is a very fine mist, so you can adjust that easily.

It wasn’t greasy, but it leaves an oily feel at first for 15 minutes or so. Then it sinks into your skin and your skin is left feeling soft. I sprayed extra on my feet to help them soften up. I used it for a couple days and found it worked well for the most part, but some areas of my skin felt a little dry the next day, whereas a cream I felt lasted longer. So this might need more frequent applications.

Although the bottle didn’t specify, I tried this in my hair. I sprayed my hair with 3 spritz or so of the coconut oil and let it spread evenly with my fingers. I then put my hair in a braid and let it dry after the shower. My hair was super soft and not frizzy, even on a rainy/humid day. I just knew I had to be careful with how much I applied, since it was pure oil.

Overall, a good product, you just have to apply a tad more frequently than I would a cream. I am happy to report no breakouts, rash, irritation, anything. It got the job done! 4 stars
