Mask Monday:: Michael Todd True Organics Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask

Wishing it was Thanksgiving since that seems to be the only time you eat pumpkin pie?  Then satisfy your pumpkin craving with this amazing mask from Michael Todd.  I have heard about Michael Todd for a few years and many of the products are on my to try list but I just hadn’t made it that far down the list yet… until I received this mask in my Birchbox!

When you apply the mask it does have a tingle which is the enzyme from the pumpkin working with the glycolic acid to dissolve dead skin and clean out clogged pores. I have to say with one use I could see a brightness and my skin felt amazing!  Because this mask contains a pretty powerful exfoliant I don’t think it would be best for those with sensitive skin.

I have been using Mario Badescu facial products but when I’m finished up with those I am definitely going to give the Michael Todd line a try!

March 2014 Birchbox

Its that time again, subscription box time!!  Lets dive in and see what this month’s Birchbox holds.


Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum  $42.00


This is a moisturizer with sunscreen that is super lightweight.  I’ve used it twice now and I really like it.  A lot of moisturizers with sunscreen have that “smell” (you know what I mean) and they tend to be a little heavy for my oily prone skin.  Not so with this, I would seriously consider buying the product.


Air Repair Rescue Balm All-Purpose Skin Salve and Lip Balm  $12.00


First off the name is quite the mouthful. Second this product is known in the industry as  the “Swiss Army Knife” of beauty products. It is described as a multitasking, all-natural skin salve can be applied anywhere and everywhere—to the lips, hands, face, knees, elbows, and even cuticles—to instantly soothe and heal dry skin.  I’m excited to try this as my lips and my elbows get super dry. 

theBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples? $32.00

I’ve never been disappointed in a product from theBalm, so I’m sure to love this!  Several YouTubers that I watch have reviewed this cream blush palette and I’ve only heard praise. And for real, the little sample is soooo cute!!


Michael Todd True Organics Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask  $34.00


Are you reading my mind Birchbox? I have been wanting to try Michael Todd products for over a year now and I made myself a promise that I would not buy anymore skincare products until I used what I had…. but its a sample….. and I really like it….like really like it! I’m pretty sure Michael Todd has garnered another fan.  Look for an in-depth review on an up coming Mask Monday.

Ghirardelli Intense Dark Cherry Tango


Birchbox really? Have you been reading my mind? Chocolate!  Now I have made it clear that I’m not the biggest fan of Birchbox’s “lifestyle” extras, a pen? Come on guys! But chocolate? I don’t mind finding this in my box at all.

Greenleaf Candle  $17.00


This candle made my box smell amazing.  And its little so that makes it extra cute too! Again, Birchbox I don’t mind lifestyle extra’s like candles, keep them coming.  Just hold the tea and pens please.


Sooo Ipsy has been beating Birchbox the last couple of months, but BB has really stepped up their game with this box.  And I received 6 items and not a foil packet in sight!
