August is bittersweet for me! It is the first full month I can sleep in during the summer. My son does not return to school until the last week of August. I am ready for him to go back to school.
I think of August as a chance to pamper myself before school starts! This month’s theme is Do Not Disturb: Pampering In Progress. If you’re a mom, you may not take the time for yourself. Well, this is your chance to be selfish and treat yourself.
Every month is like a little surprise in the mail! If you love getting mail, love beauty and love trying new products, consider subscribing to Beauty Box 5.
In my August box, I received the following items: Global Beauty Care Retinol Spa Treatment Mask, DID. Hair Spa Day Hair Ties, Olive Natural Beauty Elixir, VO5 Hot Oil Therapy Treatment and NIKA Facial Exfoliating Brush.
My hair is super long. I hope to get it cut soon. For now, I love putting it up in a ponytail to keep it out of my face. The DID. Hair Spa Day Hair Ties are perfect to keep on my wrists. Each hair tie has a cute pattern on them so they double as a bracelet or hair tie.
I like to treat my hair and scalp to a deep conditioning at least once a week or a few times a month. It helps keep my hair soft and manageable. It also helps to moisturize my scalp. I love that the VO5 Hot Oil Therapy Treatment is so easy and quick to use. I only need to apply to my hair and scalp a few minutes before I take a shower.
The oil is such a treat. Put the unopened tube in hot water to warm the oil. Massage the oil in your hair and scalp and allow to sit for about a minute. I wash away the oil with regular shampoo and conditioner.
My hair is left looking smooth and feeling soft!
The Global Beauty Care Retinol Spa Treatment Mask is a perfect treat after a long week! I prefer to use masks on the weekend or in the evening as a way to relax and enjoy quiet time. The mask only needs 20 minutes of your time. When you remove the mask, be sure to massage the serum into your skin! A mask is a great way to recharge yourself as well as your skin.
I use the Olive Natural Beauty Elixir just before bed. I always use cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Sometimes I use a serum, if I have some on-hand. The Olive Natural Beauty Elixir is a great way to seal in all that moisture on your skin. I love the little sample bottle as it is perfect for travel!
I like to exfoliate my skin at least once a week. I use a scrub or I have a few devices that help cleanse and gentle exfoliate my skin. The NIKA Facial Exfoliating Brush is a fun way to exfoliate. The NIKA Facial Exfoliating Brush offers a gentle daily exfoliation! I apply my cleanser and then use the brush in small circular motions over my face and neck. In between uses, I allow to air dry. The brush is so soft on my skin!
