Incorporating a face mask into your skin care routine is an important way to give your skin some extra attention. You can really target to your skins needs to make sure it gets the extra treatment it needs at that moment. Recently Derma E sent me a couple of skin care items to try out. After being sick for about 2 weeks, the Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask was a very welcome addition to my skin care routine. As I mentioned in my January favorites I felt like I really needed to purge my skin. It seemed like the perfect time to add this mask to my routine.
Claims:“This dual-action formula purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then exfoliates away micropollutants for purely glowing skin. Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask deeply detoxifies skin of harmful micropollutants in two ways: (1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladerwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries; (2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.“

While I would love to let you all believe I have permanently flawless skin, the reality is that I, like everyone else, get blemishes. The most recent time that one appeared, I wanted to not only cover that sucker up but to also find a product that would help it go away. So many of the blemish treatment products out there are too harsh and drying for my skin. Sure, my blemish goes away. But it’s replaced by a patch of dry skin. Neither one is pretty. This time, I decided to pick up the Cover FX Blemish Treatment Concealer to see how it worked.
Claims:“A long-wear full coverage concealer that flawlessly conceals while treating and healing blemishes. Conceal and heal with this long-wearing, full coverage formula that visibly reduces redness and prevents and heals blemishes with 1% Salicylic Acid. Offers 30% pigment load for full coverage.“

My favorite thing about Superbowl season is the snacks. I really don’t care about the sports aspect of it. I’m all about what’s on the table. It’s also the perfect time of year, and the perfect excuse, to have some fun in the kitchen re-creating some classic recipes. Buffalo cauliflower is a staple in our home. This year we wanted to add to the selection with a different take on classic nachos. We partnered up with Nacheez to bring you this delicious recipe for a layered vegan nacho dip with seasoned potato wedges.
While there’s definitely still room for classic nachos on the table, we wanted to try created a vegan nacho dip instead. And why use just tortilla chips or veggies for dipping? Why not try something new? These seasoned and baked potato wedges are yummy on their own but compliment the Nacheez vegan nacho dip perfectly. This combination is addictive. You and your guests will go back for more.
What exactly is Nacheez? Nacheez is a vegan nacho cheese made from cashews, peppers, and spices. It’s creamy in texture, and super flavorful. Surprisingly, there is only 140 calories in an entire jar. Plus, it’s also soy-free and gluten-free. It perfectly fills the craving for my spicy cheese fix.
