Face Time

Heads up – I’m about to review three products that I got as part of the Refresh Vox Box through Influenster. I got all this stuff for free, and am blogging about it because 1) I thought it’d be fun, and 2) writing reviews about it means I’m more likely to get MORE free stuff, and I really like free stuff.

Alright, I’m typing this with my glasses off so I for real can’t see anything I’m typing. I got a Refresh Vox Box from Influenster. I got some snacks and stuff that I’ll talk about later…right now I’m talking about some facey face stuff. And right now I have some facey face stuff on my face! I’m trying out the Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off mask. It smells so good. It’s feels really cool on my face, too. I just wish I’d thought to put contacts in…you’re supposed to let it sit for 20 minutes before you peel it off, so here I am…blind and squinting at my computer… My bad. DUDE. I should have bought some cucumbers to put on my face!! MY EYES! My eyes are the part that need the most pampering. My poor puffy eyes. I’m just rambling now because it’s either ramble or stare off into space. I’m #superstoked about peeling this off my face. I’m also watching listening to Friends. Ross is trying to flirt with a pizza girl. Actually, I’m glad I can’t see this. Just hearing it hurts me. Ooohh…my face is getting all stiff. The mask is drying. Dryyyyyying… Dryyyyying… That’s supposed to read like The Wicked Witch from The Wizard of OZ. I can’t even laugh my face is so stiff. Is this what it’s like to have Botox injections? It still feels really cool and tingly, though.


First up we have the Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask

Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask | The Wilson BuzzThe package. Oooohh… Aaaaahh…

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzHere I am, sitting on my couch, with a poor, unpampered face. I also can’t see anything because I took my glasses off. I really need to start saving up for Lasik.

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzAlright, put the mask on. Like I said up top there, it was really cool and tingly. I liked it. It smelled good, too. Like honey (go figure). It was kind of runny, so I was in a bit of a panic to not drip any anywhere, but I never actually did make a mess…it just felt like I might at any second.

This is when I was really bored and started making weird faces in the camera because I couldn’t really do anything else.

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzPeeling it off was as glorious as I thought it would be. And kind of reminded me of that episode of Malcolm in the Middle where Reese gets super sunburned and manages to peel it all off in one piece…and then Lois vacuums it up on accident. #hilarious Anyway, it actually managed to suck some junk out of my pores, which was awesome. And disgusting. I love peel-off masks!! I must get more.

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzHere’s an after picture. I’m not really sure there’s much of a difference…but I felt better about life. There were a couple of spots where I’d put it on kind of thick trying to use up the entire package so it hadn’t dried all the way, so I had to wipe it off with a damp washcloth. And I got it in my hair/eyebrows. But it came out easy enough with the washcloth. I for real am going to be getting more peely face masks. They’re the bob-omb.

Next I tried out L’OCCITANE Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream

L’OCCITANE Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream | The Wilson BuzzSeriously, I should get paid for my mad photography skills.

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzMy face felt delightfully moisturized post-application. I’m not sure there’s really a difference visually, but it felt nice. We’ve been hit with super bizzare-o winter weather (hello, ice storm!) so I was trapped at home, getting dried out and statically charged from the humid-less air. I’ve been slathering the rest of me in lotion, but don’t own any facial moisturizer, so this was nice to have. I’ve been using it all week!

Next up: COVERGIRL Ultra Smooth Foundation

COVERGIRL Ultra Smooth Foundation | The Wilson BuzzThat applicator kind of looks like a nipple, doesn’t it?

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzHere I am all foundationed up. I think maybe you can tell a difference? I look a bit more matte than usual, maybe? Listen, don’t take this portion of the review to heart – I do not wear makeup. So I can’t really compare this foundation to any other foundation ever, because I don’t even know the last time foundation was on my face. Whenever it was, it was more than likely someone else’s foundation, because, again I don’t own any makeup. I don’t really know what foundation is supposed to look like going on because like I said – I don’t ever put it on. So this felt really obviously like “HEY, I GOT MAKEUP ON – LOOK AT IT!” to me. It was kind of like smearing paint on my face. I think the color was actually pretty close to my skin tone, so that was cool. And fortuitous, because I’ve never known how to pick the right shade out. But, yeah…I didn’t like it. I just felt…like I had stuff smeared all over my face. It was icky and I started to get panicky and think I got some in my eye and was afraid my entire face was going to explode in a sea of pimples just because I don’t know what my skin would think of being covered in makeup after twenty-six years of not wearing it. So I washed it off. I am sorry. Again – don’t take this as a legit review of the foundation…I’m just a wackadoo that doesn’t know how to female very well. I’m sorry.

Face Time | The Wilson BuzzHere’s a shot of me with foundation and glasses on, trying to pose without looking like I was trying to pose. I almost went duck face on you. You’re welcome that I didn’t.

Tell me how you REALLY feel:
