Thursday Thoughts & Cosmedix Review

Hi, All & Happy Almost Weekend!!

I wanted to start off today's post by doing a little review of a brand I've been trying out recently. A few months ago Cosmedix reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying out their Detox mask- I'm a sucker for face masks so of course, I said yes! This mask is a charcoal mask that you rub in for ten seconds before leaving to dry on your skin. I love this mask, it smells so good and really helps to clear up any trouble spots I get. Cosmedix is launching a new product which is their Humidify moisturizer which claims to provide deep moisture and firming hydration. I've been using this product for a few weeks now and I can tell you it 100% does both of these things! Living in Vermont the weather gets very cold and dry this time of year which leads to my skin looking dull and lifeless. After a few weeks of this moisturizer, I've noticed my skin feeling better and looking plumped up. I apply this moisturizer at night and in the morning before my makeup. I've noticed that my makeup has been applying smoothly & staying nice all day. If you head over to the Cosmedix website you can purchase some of the products online as well as find a local Med Spa that sells the line.

Things I did this week //

* Thought I got the worst cold ever but turns out I have really bad allergies? Who knew! Not me! Anyways- I felt like one of those memes about how we take breathing for granted until our nose is all stuffed up! I took allergy meds and have since recovered.

*Made the most delicious Greek Pita recipe which Kyle photographed so I will be sharing it on the blog next week! I've gotten a lot of requests for dinner recipes so I'm excited to share my first one! I never realized how much work it was to photograph a recipe! 

*Got my hair done! Or should I say getting my hair done- I have an appointment for Thursday at 3:45! I've been getting balayage done for over a year now and I love how seamlessly my hair grows out- It makes the upkeep so easy! 

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

*Staying at my parent's house- They're headed to Maine for a beer & wine tasting so I'm "manning the fort". The benefit of this "fort" is that their fridge is always stocked, they have this cozy fireplace on the back deck & they have premium cable! Living the life! 

*Baking some Halloween treats! I'm all about going "all out" for holidays so I need to make some monster treats! 

What are your weekend plans!?



  1. Ah I tried some Cosmedix products last year and they did not work on my skin. :( But I didn't try any masks so maybe that would!!
