February Bougie Babe Challenge

Hey Babes!

Happy Black History month! It is time for the newest challenge of the month. I thought long about this challenge, which is why it took me until now to announce it. I didn’t know if I wanted to combine black history with Valentine’s Day festivities. However, I felt that it would be too obvious. I want to create challenges that better my reader and myself. This month’s challenge is to enjoy love. Once a week, complete an activity that you love to do. I know it’s sounds easy, but life can get in the way of our alone time. Spend time with yourself while reading a book; cleaning the house; writing a poem, or trying new recipes. I will be posting one lucky winner on February 28th and the winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Here are the rules:

  1. You must be following my blog, Bougie Babe and following me @ken.monet on Instagram.
  1. Challenger must upload a picture each week of them enjoying the activity they love with the hashtag #BougieBabeChallenge by February 27th at 11:59 pm.
  1. The activity must be completed in February OF 2019! Do NOT upload a picture of an old vacation or activity you completed a long time ago.
  1. Comment on this post once you have uploaded your picture with your email address.
  1. The caption should explain what the activity is and why you chose to partake in it.

And those are the rules! I loved seeing the January challenges you guys posted. I can’t wait to see the posts for this month. Don’t forget to like, share, and comment on this post. Also, follow my blog and @ken.monet on Instagram.

Review: Walgreens Avocado Oil and Oatmeal Mask

Hey Babes!

Welcome back to Bougie Babe!  I hope your holiday weekend was phenomenal.  Today, I will be reviewing another Walgreens face mask. Again, I visited my favorite place on Earth (An exaggeration, but it’s almost true.) – Walgreens.  I searched the shelves to find a new product to try for my readers.  As I struggled to find anything new, a specific tube caught my eye.  The design of the bottle isn’t unique or special, but I wanted to try it.  The mask does not include Parabens, Phthalates, and Sulfates; however, the mask includes fragrance.  I looked for the face mask on the Walgreens’ website.  Unfortunately, I did not find the mask on the website.  After intensive research on Google, I gave up.  This facial tube mask I bought at Walgreens is only available at my local Walgreens store. 

Walgreens’ Nourish Facial Mask

The Avocado oil and Oatmeal face mask is a good mask. It works well on the skin and dries swiftly.  If you have sensitive skin, be careful and wash the mask off quickly.  After applying the paste to my face, the mask immediately began to dry.  The mask feels tight on the skin while it dries.  The tinkling sensation is absent with this specific mask.  Also, the fragrance in the mask is not a strong scent. After about ten minutes, the mask is completely dry.

Once I washed the mask off, my skin felt smoother.  I needed to apply a moisturizer because my face looked ashy and felt like cement.  I used the Breedlove Beauty buttercream to bring the moisture back into my face and my skin felt better.  The mask is not the best mask out of every face mask I have tried, however, it is a good one.  It is good to clear the skin; if you aren’t careful about what you use to moisturize the skin afterwards, the mask will irritate your skin.  Overall, the Walgreens’ Nourish Avocado oil and Oatmeal mask is two and a half stars out of five stars.  The mask is good for clearing the skin but does not “nourish” the face.

Thank you for reading my post!  Don’t forget to like, share, and comment.  Also, follow me on my blog and @ken.monet on Instagram.

Guest Review: Charcoal Bubble Mask

Hey Babes!

Today, I have a special treat.  I invited a guest to review the Charcoal Bubble Mask from Walgreens.  The sheet mask is one of Walgreens’ newest skincare items.  The Charcoal Bubble mask deep cleans, exfoliates, and invigorates the skin.  Walgreens infused charcoal and micro-bubble foaming action to create the perfect mask for all skin types.

My guest reviewer, D. Brown, has dry skin.  His face feels rough and tight when he does not moisturize his skin.  We placed the mask on his face and left it on for three minutes.

Bougie: How do you feel when I put the mask on your face?

D. Brown: At first, the mask is cold on the face.  Also, it feels slimy, like snail slime.  It’s not the worst feeling, but I wish the mask was warm.

Bougie: I can see the bubbles forming on top of the mask.  Do you feel the bubbles working on your face?

D. Brown: Yes, I feel it all over my face. The bubbles begin to work on contact.  I feel the bubbles tickling my pores, so the mask must be working.

Bougie: Have you tried a charcoal-infused face mask before this mask?

D. B.: No.  I tried face masks with all different types of ingredients.  This would be my first mask with charcoal.

Bougie: Unfortunately, you only need the mask for three minutes.  It is time to take it off.

[Takes off mask]

D. B.: What do I do next?

Bougie: Rub the remaining cleanser into the skin, then rinse your face with warm water.

D. B.: Okay.

[Rubs cleanser into skin and rinses face]

D. B.: My skin feels smoother and looks brighter.  My face doesn’t feel tight and dry.  You see results as soon as you finish.

Bougie: Would you incorporate this mask into your daily routine?

D. B.: Definitely.

Bougie: Thank you for reviewing this product.  Also, your face is glowing!

D.B.: [Laughs] Thanks, babe.

After the charcoal face mask

 

And there you have it!  The Charcoal Bubble mask was a success!  The mask begins to work immediately after applying to the face. Also, the results are amazing.  If you are in a hurry and do not have time for a regular ten-minute face mask, the charcoal facial mask is perfect. The face mask retails for $1.49 at Walgreens.  Thank you for reading this post and have a great Monday!
