After long, hot day and feeling tired, I needed a mask with hydration qualities so I decided to try out WHEN "The Last Choice" Facial Mask that I have won from a fellow beauty blogger!! After cleansing my face, I applied this bio-cellouse mask and left it on for over 30 minutes!! Afterwards, I massaged the remaining "serum" into my face and neck areas!! This masks has no strong perfumes nor chemicals and my face felt like a placed a soaking washcloth on it after the treatment!!

Until next time....

This September which is bouncing between Hot Summer and Cool Fall, I have received this Nestle Splash Flavored Water in "Mandarin Orange" from Influenster for review!! I do love orange flavors including Mandarin Orange but I became pleasantly surprised that not only this water is refreshing but no artificial aftertaste!!  This water can help me make smarter drink options on the road without sodas or that dollar Sweet Tea!!

"I received my NestlĂ© Splash products complimentary from Influenster and am entering the Brand Challenge for a chance to win a prize.”

Until next time....
