They are not that harsh on your skin, so there is no worry about the mask making your skin too dry. I have normally dry skin and this mask is perfect for me. It dries all the impurities on my skin , leaving me with such a smooth clear skin. The scent is also very sweet but not overpowering. The mask dries pretty quickly (15-20 mins) and it's very easy to remove . I use it once a week and my skin has neve been better. I also appreciate all the ingredients being organic and natural. It's such a relief to know that you are putting on your skin only good things that aren't full of chemicals.

#NOTICETHELOTUS at Target - derma e has arrived!

[ powered by Brandbacker ]

New year is the best time to start taking care of your skin. The winter really damages the skin and it's highly important to make sure to moisturize it as much as deeply as possible.
I like going to Target pretty often and the beauty section is one of my favorites.
I like seeing what's new in the market and what I could try.
I was so happy to find Derma-e and its new products.

Let's first learn a little about the brand :
Imagine a time, not long ago...
When people didn’t consider how their internal health affected their outward appearance. And, nobody understood that what you put on your skin matters too. The phrases “superfood”, “holistic health” and “sustainable” were rarely or never used. Nobody was concerned about their skincare being eco-friendly and nobody was eating kale. 

Then derma e® got started.

Healthy before healthy was “in” 
derma e® pushed skincare forward in a new direction by fusing powerful vitamins and plants together with modern science - we called it Green Chemistry. Continuing to be always aware, derma e® adheres to the highest ethical standards when it comes to animal welfare and our impact on the planet. 

The results
derma e® built a passionate following in the natural products industry and beyond, always aspiring to make highly effective, premium skincare formulas but with cruelty-free green chemistry.

From now on  I would suggest you start paying more attention at Target and #noticethelotus too!

Firming DMAE Eye Lift    ( get it here > )

Visibly lift, firm and tighten the delicate eye area while smoothing crow’s feet with this doctor-developed, multi-action eye treatment crème that contains advanced, clinically proven natural ingredients. DMAE, a widely-acclaimed skin-firming nutrient, is clinically proven to boost collagen for firmer, more resilient skin. InstaLift® Goji Berry glycopeptides add further firming, lifting and tightening antioxidant power. Advanced peptides Argireline® and Matrixyl® synthe'6® work together to soften facial muscles and synthesize new key components such as collagen, helping smooth wrinkles and discourage new lines from forming. Hyaluronic Acid, also known as nature's moisture magnet, infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture helping leave skin soft, smooth, tone and rehydrated. With continued use, this pro-collagen and pro-elastin blend leaves the delicate eye area firmer, smoother and younger-looking. 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, GMO-free.

I personally liked this cream a lot! I found it very good for my eye area since it helped me moisturize and fight the first signs of aging is such a graceful way. I would apply the cream night and day followed by the Firming Dermae moisturizer (during the day ) or the Hydrating night crème . The results were amazing! My skin was very bright, always very good moisturized.

The cream is cruelty free, gluten free, GMO free! 

  I liked how the products come in plastic containers since that makes it so easy to travel and put them in your bag! I will definitely be taking them with me again when I travel!

After trying all these products I will definitely keep purchasing them again in the future! Both at Target or at

OZ Naturals is a top seller on and its easy to understand why.

Co-Founder and Certified Esthetician, Angela Irish launched OZ Naturals as a company that embodies everything she's passionate about -- healthy skin, anti-aging, natural ingredients, and utilizing the latest technology to formulate the highest quality skin care products on the market.

Utilizing her personal experience of skin issues, that she understands that when your skin is unhealthy it can negatively affect your self-esteem. After try tons of products over the years she was always left with the same skin issues as before. Sometimes even worse than before. Angela knows how disheartening this can be, especially when so many skin care products make huge claims, and simply do not deliver. It's especially frustrating when the cost of those products are hardly affordable, and you realize once again that you've wasted your money.

While it's true that beautiful skin is also hereditary, healthy skin comes from taking care of the inside and outside of our bodies. However, finding the right products for your skin can be the toughest part of the equation. This is why OZ Naturals was founded, to create healthy, premium skin care products to help those who weren't naturally born with perfect skin, to obtain more perfect skin. The kind of skin that everyone deserves to have.

OZ NATURALS ULTRA AGELESS eye crème is packed with ingredients that are proven effective for many eye and facial area concerns.

THE INCLUSION OF A POTENT PEPTIDE, Matrixyl®synthe'6®, evens skin and smoothes wrinkles from the inside out, predominantly on the forehead and crow's feet around the eyes.

OZ Naturals ULTRA AGELESS EYE CRÈME also contains botanical Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects that defends skin cells from free radicals. Sometimes known as "Super Vitamin E," it has an antioxidant action up to 500 times that of Vitamin E.

ALGAE EXTRACT NOURISHES, protects and hydrates skin with vitamins and minerals, and provides wrinkle preventing properties. Carrot Root Extract also contains many effective anti-aging properties, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and has also been known to help reduce wrinkles, scarring and stretch marks.

THE DELICATE EYE AREA is further supported by caffeine and Paullinia Cupana Extract, which helps reduce puffiness and create a smoothing effect around the entire eye area.

My experience:
I personally loved the cream, it's so lightweight, so effective and so delicate on my skin.
I love how  it sits on my under eye are and improves it little by little.
I started seeing results since the very first applications.
The product is so light and in a white cream consistency.
I like how the packaging is a plastic blue tube,very practical when traveling and to put into the bag .
The product is made in Usa and it's 99% natural and most of all cruelty free.
I also love wearing it under my make up.
I really approve this product and would be repurchasing it in the future.

Elf Haul & First Impressions

E.L.F. has always been one of my favorite on the budget drugstore brand and i have been rediscovering it recently. 
They were having a sale few weeks ago and i took the chance to get a few things i wanted to try out. 
I have had the chance to test the products out too and if you are interested i can write reviews for you.
I decided to try out the mascara shield this time and i must say what a disappointment it was. 
I got a chance to order my beloved Sunscreen  Spf 45 High definition powder . I found it very interesting since it seemed a quick fix for when it's very hot and i don't feel like wearing sun protection or when i simply forget it. I have found it a very valid product. It is a very light pink high definition powder that becomes almost invisible when applied. The box is very big and will last you a very long while. (Link )
I also restocked on the famous High definition powder ( Link) . i really like this powder and how cheap and valid it is. I consider it the best drugstore translucent powder. The price is very little and the quantity they sell you is very big. It's a win win in my opinion. 
Elf's nail block ( Link) is one of the favorite things of my order. I like how small, compact and functional it is! It does an amazing job on a super small price tag :1$ .
I also decided to try their famous primer since a lot of blogger rave about it. I still haven't made up my mind if i like this product or not. For now i keep using it and trying to decided if it's a failure or worth it. (Link
If you have to buy one product only from elf please make it to be their amazing blending brushes (1$) .I can neve have enough of them. Such a good quality for a ridiculous price! I always make sure to have back ups in case i travel and lose a few of them. I have been buying them for years and they do a super amazing job when it comes to blending eyeshadow.  ( Link

What are your favorite products from Elf or drugstores?

Everything less than 4 $ Clothing and Beauty Haul @ Forever21

Who doesn't like to shop good items on a super low budget? 

Forever 21 is my go to store when it comes to unbelievable prices for good basics. 
I love their 1.90$ cami  (Link) and here in the photos you will see my favorite basic v-neck top that only cost 3.80$!  (Link

I also enjoy their beauty section a lot too. They always have good things for cheap prices. I ended up getting some make up wedges ( the best ones to apply concealer when you do not want to use a make up brush  Link ), black simple hair ties ( i do not know where the huge assortment i had went, is there a hidden place where they all hang around? Link ) , a hair brush since my old one that i use to brush my wet hair died (it was on sale at  the time i purchased it but now is back to its original price , Link  ), a super fabulous face massager ( i use it to delicately scrub my face and wash my make up brushes too , i love it! ) 
I was so happy to see how all the items were so cheaply priced. I will definitely be stocking up on more t shirts and camis when i need to stock up next time. I really loved the quality of them. For being so cheap they are very very comfortable, breathable, good quality and quite durable. 
If you are on a budget or want just some extra basic tops check them out!I got  mine in red, black and white and i love pairing them with casual outfits overtime. They hold up very good when washed. 

Insider tip: if you go on store you will find only a very limited amount of colors and sizes. I always prefer to get them online. This theory has been proven all the times i tried to purchase the camis since they are only available on a handful of colors and 1-2 sizes and online is so hard to choose instead.   

What are your favorite stores for basics or when you do not want to spend too much money on ?
