A little "me" time with Bioré

I do love getting in a little pampering sesh once or twice a week. It helps me wind down, especially when work and life gets a bit busy and stressful. Finding time for yourself is extremely important and it is proven to help you feel better mentally and physically. I have a slew of masks that I love to use, as I have mentioned in previous posts but I am always up to trying something new.

I love 'masking' with multiple products at one time, as it is beneficial to use specific products that help target a single area in a quick period of time, especially if finding 'me' time can be challenging with our busy schedules. Two products that I used over the weekend are the Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips and Bioré One Minute Self Heating Mask

Biore has been around for years and I have been using their pore strips forever, however The Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips help pull out all that gunk in your nose in a quick 10 minutes. It helps remove all the buildup and oil that tends to gravitate to our nose.

The Bioré One Minute Self Heating Mask is such a fun and unique product. The minute this masks hits your face and you start to massage it in, it heats up. There is slight tingly sensation from the warmth, which helps draw out dirt and oils that are hanging out on your skin. You are left with feeling smooth and refreshed. You can apply this mask 2-3 x a week

These products are super affordable, great for traveling and can be found at your local Target or Amazon. So grab yourself some fun new Bioré products and pamper yourself this week sometime. You won't regret it!

TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist: Style Without Stiffness

I love a good hair day, but sometimes that just ain't happening. I have to be up so early in the morning, that my hair is the least of my worries and typically my mornings are very quick and too the point. Too cut out the extra stress, I make sure my clothes are laid out the night before and the simple things to get me out the door quickly are set in motion before going to bed. Most evenings, especially the evenings where I go to the gym after work, I wash my hair before I go to bed so that I can avoid having to take the time to dry it. This also allows me to get out of the house in a quick and timely manner and avoid putting extra wear and tear on my hair.

Now the downfall to letting my hair air dry is that it lacks texture and has a very fine/silky feeling. I love a good second day hair, but frankly I don't have hair that can tolerate going to the gym and just spraying a ton of dry shampoo in it. It gets super greasy and it just FEELS super dirty. I wish I was that girl, but I have tried over and over again without any luck. However, when getting ready in the morning I recently started using the new TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist hairsprays that work great with dry hair. 


My morning routine consists of first dirtying up my roots with the Compressed Micro-Mist texturizing Hairspray Level 1. It adds a bit of grip and gives me the second day hair that I am looking for. What I love most about this Texturizing Spray is it provides a light hold, but still allows my hair to feel light and bouncy. It isn't stiff at all and it doesn't matter how much you spray. The Micro-mist Hair Spray uses super fine micro-mist particles that penetrate through the top layer of hair to provider deeper coverage throughout your hair. So your hair will never feel weighed down.


Next, I take a comb and piece out sections of my hair. I tease each section individually to help create volume. The Micro-Mist Texturizing Spray helps create the added volume without the added stiffness. The comb doesn't get stuck and my hair doesn't feel clumpy.

I take the Micro-Mist Smoothing Spray Level 2 and spritz throughout to add a bit more oomph and too lock in the smoothness and texture.

I take my flat iron and individually straighten the ends to create some smoothness. 


I add a bit more texturizing and smoothing spray throughout my hair before pinning pieces individually with bobby pins to create a half-up do.


I create the up do of the day. Sometimes I will add some extra waves with my flat iron or curling iron. Other days I wear it down and add more texture to create a tousled look. And sometimes I will throw it up into a messy pony. Honestly it all depends on the day and how I am feeling :)

To say I am a fan is an understatement. Love the sleek bottles and love the products entirely. I will continue to use the TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray line. You can find the entire Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray products at your local Walmart.
