top 6 skincare masks

HELLOOOOOOOO youtube world!

y'all, this is SUCH A FEAT!!! over sunday brunch, my foodie friend @wanderlustanita and i were discussing the youtube world, and what i wanted my first video to be like... she told me, "better done than perfect!" at this point... SO TRUE. i tried my best on this one and for some self taught editing... not bad janna doan (yes, i talk to myself in third person occasionally). i have many things to work on ("UHMMM." yes, i know, i say it a lot, it's very annoying, i'm trying to quit that!) and ideas already brewing in my mind that i can't wait to execute down the line. i am really excited to introduce this new facet of jannadoan.com; think of it as me coming to life from still images?! maybe you should be scared. haha, either way i hope that you will follow me on this (rocky) journey. 

this is long overdue and i am proud of this video because it was NOT EASY. diving into the unknown, teaching myself videography, and Adobe premiere editing/formatting (thank goodness for google and youtube tutorials), still images, music, formats etc...! can you believe this is only the beginning?! i’m just scratching the surface. i will say, it is pretty awkward sitting in a room by yourself talking to a camera. just sayin'. i hope to one day look back and see how far i’ve come. it’s all about starting somewhere and making progress, am i right?!

skincare masks are my BFF. they should be yours too! i’m an avid person when it comes to masks. i do them on the REGULAR, the same day each week, guaranteed. also it’s a great way for you to treat/pamper yourself after a long day or even if you have a girls night in! if you find yourself always forgetting to do them, put it on your calendar, set reminders, MAKE TIME until it becomes a habit! remember, good skin doesn’t happen overnight. it takes years of consistency and finding a routine that works for you. so start now with some masks! in all my photos and now video, i do NOT wear ANY FOUNDATION (ain’t nobody got time for that). not bragging (because trust me my skin is nowhere near perfect), but merely stating that this is a huge testament in what consistency, taking care and investing in your skin will do for YOU (and maybe a good ring light too, lol). 

view my FIRST YOUTUBE video after the jump! xx

signing off and celebrating this thing i call and look forward to most in life #thelittlevictory.

tatcha luminous collection review

my philosophy is skin first -- always. in my photos i do not wear any form of foundation because i am LAZY. let's just start with that. instead of taking time to put foundation on my face every morning, i put all my effort into taking care of my skin so i can put this step off for as long as i can. as much as good skin is about genes, healthy eating, and drinking plenty of water it's also about investing in good skincare products that work for YOU. 

there is no secret that TATCHA is one of my favorite LUXURY skincare brands. with that said, it is not for everyone due to the price tag. i am a firm believer in quality over quantity. you know that saying, "you get what you pay for?" well, when it comes to TATCHA, you get that and more. every product is heavily researched and packaged to extreme perfection. not only does my skin love TATCHA, i love the customer service and philosophy that TATCHA stands behind. TATCHA is a partner for the Room to Read program which provides a day of school for one girl for every full-sized product that is purchased. not to mention the founder, Victoria Tsai (who has such beautiful skin, i mean... have you seen it?!), has studied geisha rituals to skincare and traveled all around the world to curate ingredients that make up TATCHA.

while i am already an avid user of the TATCHA radiant deep brightening serum, i had the pleasure to test a few of the latest additions to the TATCHA luminous collection with regular usage for the past month +. the main ingredient to this collection is red algae which is known for its moisture-retaining properties. this is great because i think the number one thing that skin always lacks is... MOISTURE. 

luminous overnight memory serum concentrate

what it is: "A unique, hydrating gel-like serum concentrate to visibly replenish and diminish the look of fine lines, revealing a youthful glow in one use."

what it does: "This ultra-concentrated formula of hydrating Okinawa Red Algae and 7 other rich botanical extracts including ginseng, squalane, wild thyme, and sweet marjoram visibly improves skin clarity, texture, and tone for overall renewed radiance overnight. Formulated with Tatcha's proprietary, anti-aging HADASEITM-3 Bioactive Complex." 

my thoughts: 

  • lightweight, non-greasy, absorbs easily
  • very faint clean scent that doesn't linger, nothing to deter someone who is a scent-a-phobe
  • consistency is like... jello! when you dip your spoon into it, the product will mold back into looking brand new the next time you use it! 
  • glass jar with a dainty gold spoon applicator so you don't have to dip your hands into the pot
  • spoon is secured into place with the ribbon on the lid
  • brighter complexion in the AM
  • great for sensitive skin
  • current usage: PM after my SK-II routine (what a combo!)

luminous deep hydration firming eye serum

what it is: "This weightless serum of Okinawa Red Algae, Honeysuckle Leaf and Caffeine offers instantly-visible firming, reduced puffiness, and plumping hydration to diminish fine lines."

what it does: "A cooling ceramic applicator and fine dust of 23-karat gold brighten and diminish shadows under the eyes without adding shimmer."

my thoughts:

  • lightweight, non-greasy, absorbs easily
  • unscented
  • plastic tube with unique cooling ceramic applicator = no need to use fingers!!
  • applies so smoothly = dispense small droplets of product outlining the under eye then use the applicator to evenly smooth it into the skin = no tugging of the delicate under eye
  • brighter undereyes (hello 23K gold!), refreshed look, slightly decreased puffiness
  • great for sensitive skin
  • current usage: AM & PM

recently, they started a subscription box called BeautyFIX! and come on, who doesn't want a "beauty fix" every month?!? #literally. arriving at your doorstep will be a pretty good size box that ranges from full to deluxe travel sizes curated by skin experts. they are brands that DermStore carries, so it is going to be pretty freakin' good. subscriptions also make great gifts (even for yourself! haha!) that literally keeps giving all year long!! take a look at the eight items in the...

January BeautyFIX box:

  1. Danielle Creations chrome mini mirror -- omg, the cutest little travel size double sided mirror that has 4x magnification! perfect for when you travel with your squad and they be hoggin' the bathroom mirror. retails for $14.99 USD.
  2. Peter Thomas Roth acne-clear invisible dots (12 clear dots) -- adhesive patches to be used as a spot treatment for acne and blemishes. contains salicylic acid, tea tree oil, hyaluronic acid (for hydration). 72 clear dots for $32 USD.
  3. June Jacobs papaya purifying enzyme masque (15 mL/0.5 fl. oz.) -- a cream-based mask that smells divine! like i'm sipping on a coconut on a tropical island (oh, wait i'm sitting at my desk. sigh). it has papaya which has exfoliant properties. gosh this full size baby retails for a whopping $60! (4 fl. oz.)
  4. Arcona magic white ice (10 mL/0.33 oz.) -- this AM/PM gel serum moisturizer is supposed to leave skin feeling fresh and glowy. has a very distinct perfume-y smell. 1.17 oz. retails for $42 USD.
  5. Medicell Labs hydrating calming facial mist (30 mL/1 fl. oz., full size) -- misting your face. yep, it's a thing. i bring mists with me when i travel (this is a perfect travel size) and it's great for when you are in places where the air is dry (aka: airplane). contains botanical ingredients to hydrate and refresh. smells like the spa without going to the spa. retails for $13.95 USD #mistyoself
  6. DS Laboratories revita hair stimulating shampoo (100 mL/3.4 oz.) -- this revolutionary shampoo contains ingredients (even caffeine!) to maintain scalp vitality, prevent hair loss, and promote fuller looking hair. 6 oz. retails for $29.99 USD.
  7. Tarina Tarantino pearl glow luminizing primer in pearl (1 fl. oz, full size) -- this is a lightweight illuminating primer that adds that dewy glow to your skin. it reminds me of Burberry's fresh glow. more liquid-y so shake it up before using it. retails for $32 USD. 
  8. Karuna age-defying hand mask (1 hand mask = 2 hands, hope this makes sense) -- forget those face masks! hands need love too, esp considering how much we use them. this is a creamy oil-infused cloth-based mask for both your hands! it's supposed to reduce signs of aging, retain moisture, and revitalize dry skin. the glove even has a secure strap for a custom fit! leave on for 20 mins and you got some glowing hands. 4 hand masks retail for $32 USD. they also make face masks and you can try the entire line here.

01 | Kevyn Aucoin the sculpting powder in medium -- i'm surprised i haven't wrote about this yet! but it is my FAVORITE contouring powder. there are a dozen out there and for a while i was using a bronzer to do this #whatwasithinking. this is a universal color, not at all muddy, or orange and helps to give you that sculpted effect. think of Adele in her latest video 'Hello.' if you want perfectly chiseled cheekbones, you need this. (in conjunction with the celestial powder). i've had mine for almost two years now and finally seeing a peek of the pan show through! #thefeelingofhittingpan
02 | NARS Steven Klein collaboration one shocking moment cheek palette -- NARS is known for their blushes and they are great blushes to start out with. this palette features four blushes (robotic, blaspemy, luster, and dolce vita), a contour and highlighter duo, and their famous bronzer in laguna. great palette for traveling. 
03 | Burberry wet & dry silk eyeshadow -- this is a great time to pick up ANYTHING Burberry. so let's go with the Burberry eyeshadows. my friend introduced these to me and these are like butter (BUTTAH) in makeup form. i only own three of the old formulation (they were re-formulated them earlier this year) in trench, midnight brown, and pale barley. pale barley is my favorite, what a beautiful neutral brown. the packaging on these are quite exquisite, metal casing and comes with a velvet pouch. now if i only knew how to apply these like the pros. PS -- i've read that people start using these eyeshadows in the top left hand corner. :) 
04 | Koh Gen Do aqua foundation SPF 15 -- a cult favorite in terms of mineral foundation. though it comes in limited shades (use to only be like three!!) these always look amazing on the makeup artists i see wearing them. if i had time for foundation, this is what i would be getting. formulated w/o parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. 
05 | Caolion premium hot & cool pore pack duo -- this is apart of the korean beauty feature at Sephora. i like the concept of this duo mask, "... a steaming mask that opens and deeply cleanses pores, then a cooling mask to tighten and minimize the appearance of pores." so far it has pretty good reviews, i definitely want to pick this up to try it. another k-beauty item i'd like to try is the Too Cool for School egg cream sheet mask, described as "a sheet mask infused with egg white and egg yolk extract to instantly hydrate for a bright and radiant complexion." both are formulated w/o parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. 
06 | Kiesque liquid palisade easy peel polish barrier -- when i saw this i was like WHOA! genius. (for people who can't paint nails... like me.) it's basically a "nail tape" that protects the cuticles from stains during application!! #easilyamused
07 | Anastasia dipbrow pomade (i use this in ebony) -- while i don't draw in my brows (i actually should because one is lighter than the other! #browsnotcreatedequal) all you need is the tiniest amount. the two or three times i've used this i lightly dip it into the pot and have to take some off onto a kleenex (basically wasting product) because it is EXTREMELY pigmented. but talk about #browsonfleek! color and holding power all-in-one. when this came out, it was all the craze. for those who don't want to mess with a separate brush for application, try her bestselling brow wiz in pencil form
08 | belif the true cream aqua bomb -- another line from the Korean beauty feature on Sephora. i've seen this on instagram a lot and it seems to do really well. it is described as, "gel-cream that 'floods' the skin with a rush of refreshing hydration and minimizes the appearance of pores for soft, smooth, supple skin for normal to combination skin types, including oily skin, and dry skin types looking for a lightweight moisturizer." it also comes in a smaller size and formulated w/o parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. 

what did you HAUL?!

sharing some new beauty items on my radar. more details after the jump!

01 | Wayne Goss brush 02 -- Wayne Goss, highly respected in the make-up industry, came out with his own set of brushes that sold out upon it's release earlier this year, they always get great reviews so i've been meaning to try one. 02 caught my eye as a highlighter brush to use with my beloved Kevyn Aucoin celestial powder in candelight. these are handcrafted in Japan (so you know it's good quality just like Hakuhodo). i'm also eyeing The Eye Set. #nopunintended #deskslapper
02 | Diorshow iconic overcurl mascara set -- whenever i go see my aesthetician, we talk about a lot of beauty products! she mentioned she had tried this recently and loves it! i read some reviews and i like how it seems to hold curl pretty well. while i am not one to spend this much on mascara, i'd be curious to try it. i like how this comes with a free mini eyeshadow palette! 
03 | CHANEL le top coat lame rouge noir (vamp attitude holiday collection, limited edition) -- this holiday collection is beautiful and inspired by their vamp nail polish (which, btw, if you don't have this color you need it in your life). IMO, the stand out is this top coat with gold specks in it. um, hellooo holidays. see a review and swatches of all the polishes from this collection on @temptalia. great, now the joues contraste blush 12 coups de minuit is looking good too!  
04 | Tom Ford nail lacquer in black out (noir holiday collection, limited edition) -- just when i thought it was crazy to spend $27 USD on a CHANEL nail polish... TF takes the cake at $35 USD (I'm not ready to talk Christian Louboutin yet!). i have read that these polishes are well worth the money in terms of longevity and color pay off. from the photos this looks like a gray/black/blue with shimmer. i look forward to the release of every Tom Ford collection, he's that good. see swatches and a review on @beautygypsy.
05 | Tom Ford matte lip color in first time -- this is apart of this regular matte line of lipsticks, which are amazing and NON-DRYING (oxymoron for matte right?!). this is apart of the noir 2015 holiday collection, and a re-promote that has been re-packaged for $3 USD more than the regular packaging. this is a beautiful peachy-pink not too nude color and has vertical lines going up and down the tube. basically, it's sexy packaging at its finest. see this color on @beautyprofessor (also one of her fav lip colors!).
06 | too cool for school egg cream sheet mask -- korean beauty products are all the rage right now @sephora. this is a cloth face mask, and at a pretty good price too (at least cheaper than the SK-II facial treatment essence masks!). it is described as, "a milky, serum-enriched microfiber sheet mask infused with egg white and egg yolk extract to instantly hydrate for a bright and radiant complexion." i've read that users love the way their skin feels so soft afterwards. 
07 | Glossier boy brow -- i discovered this brand through instagram (ahem, enabler @damselflavored) starting with their lip product balm dotcom.  their newest product is the boy brow. it is supposed to, "thicken, fill in, and groom your brows into place." now that's an all in one product! it is a creamy formula and not supposed to make your brows feel "crunchy." (note: no beauty product should ever feel crunchy). comes in blond, brown, and black. love the slogan for this product, "brush your teeth, brush your brows, and then maybe brush your hair." #hilar #browgame use code "TAMIRASBROWS" @tamirajarrel for a free balm dotcom and shipping! trust me, you want anything she uses for her brows!
08 | Kevyn Aucoin gossamer loose powder in diaphanous -- apparently, this is an old product that was discontinued and made it's way back. they seem to be similar in function to the Hourglass ambient lighting powders (which are amazing) but in loose powder form. comes in two colors, diaphanous (for light skin tones) and radiant diaphanous (warmer skin tones). 

PM skincare routine

i couldn't wait to share my PM skincare routine with y'all to complement my recent post on the AM skincare routine! the PM is a little more intense than the AM because it's the time of day where your face will be bare and clean while you get that beauty sleep on! this may seem overwhelming, but i actually look forward to all of this -- i encourage you to start a PM skincare routine that you look forward to! 

READ MORE

01 | cleanse

dermalogica precleanse ($38 USD for 5.1 oz.) -- start your routine by taking all your makeup off with a cleansing oil. most of the time, these are to be used on a dry face before you do anything else. this gives the Clarisonic (next step) a clean canvas to work with which yields better results. i highly recommend this no matter how little makeup you wear. however, it doesn't come in the best packaging, so i fill mine in an empty Caudalie SOS serum container that has a pump. unsure? try the travel size

dermalogica special cleansing gel ($36 USD for 8.4 oz., pictured is the travel size $10.50 USD for 1.7 oz.) -- this was also mentioned in the AM skincare routine since i wash my face twice a day. in the PM i use the cleansing gel with my beloved, HG (holy grail) can-never-live-without Clarisonic mia. as i mentioned in my Clarisonic mia review, this brush works best in the shower and this cleanser lathers very well, isn't drying like foam cleansers, and fragrance free. 

02 | exfoliate

AMORE PACIFIC treatment enzyme peel ($60 USD for 2.5 oz.) -- this is one of the first powder exfoliators i've used and i love it. the only problem is that it's not really convenient to use. by this i mean that the powder is activated with water. therefore, if you leave this bottle in a place where there is moisture (aka: bathroom), it will clump up. this is a very gentle exfoliator and you only need a tiny amount. this bottle has lasted me almost two years and we're still going. i use this about 3x a week, activate it with water and leave it on my face and neck for about 30 seconds. TATCHA also makes a unique range of rice powder exfoliants in: soothing, classic, gentle, and deep. i have tried the classic powder and it also works great, very similar to AMORE PACIFIC without the signature AMORE PACIFIC perfume-y smell.

03 | tone

SK-II facial treatment clear lotion ($70 USD for 5 oz.) and SK-II facial treatment essence ($105 USD for 2.5 oz.) -- this duo goes hand in hand. if you are going to use one do it right and use the other. see my review on my SK-II regimen. this is also HG status in my life. if you are hesitant, i recommend purchasing the SK-II starter kit ($105 USD, valued at $130 USD) which will also give you the opportunity to try the mask as well!

04 | moisturize

Caudalie SOS vinosource thirst quenching serum ($49 USD for 1 oz.) -- i've used this for sooo many years now, and it's so good that i use it twice a day, AM and PM. 

TATCHA deep brightening serum ($185 USD for 1.7 oz / TATCHA also ships free to TX) -- this is the most expensive moisturizer i have ever used in my life. (gulp!) if you read this blog you know how much i love TATCHA products. not only are all the products outstanding, the brand, people, and company's philosophy really give it extra points in my books. i tried this serum in the TATCHA ritual discovery kit ($59 USD for four RE-FILLABLE travel size products, valued at $99 USD) and fell in love. every morning i honestly feel like my skin is more luminous and bright. however, there is one downside (besides price!!), i can't see how much is left in this pretty white bottle. therefore... i have legitimate fears that one day i will push down on the pump and nothing will come out. #thehorror

Kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate ($46 USD for 1 oz.) -- a few years ago the thought of putting oil on or anywhere near my face was out of the question. who would do that and WHY?!?! skincare has changed since and putting oil on your face is actually very accepted/encouraged these days. so i jumped on the bandwagon with this, my first oil moisturizer. it is supposed to, "regenerate, repair, and replenish skin for smoother, healthier skin." it also has the same scent as the midnight recovery eye cream, but nothing overpowering. i mainly use this for my neck. can't forget the neck!

05 | prevent

Kiehl's midnight recovery eye cream ($36 USD for 0.5 oz.) -- this was one of the first eye creams i started using religiously the past few years. you should've seen my reaction the day i actually finished ONE whole tube! it will take you forever so for the price, this is really worth it since all you need is the TINIEST amount. tip: apply using the tips of your ring fingers, i've read this is the softest finger and the best to use for applying treatments to the delicate under eye area. this is a thicker eye treatment than my AM Skinceuticals AOX eye gel ($92 USD for 15 ml) and works great as a PM treatment. it is supposed to, "diminish the appearance of fine lines, dark circles, and reduce puffiness." again, with all eye treatments, you will not see the results immediately. i think that is part of the reason why people quit. remember, it's a preventative measure and the time to start is now, not when you start noticing the wrinkles or bags! 

Cle De Peau Beaute lip serum ($95 USD for 15 ml) -- i recently splurged on this. after researching, it was the pot-less application that sold me, not to mention that it is by Cle De Peau Beaute. it's supposed to hydrate, shape, and minimize the appearance of lines/wrinkles. i've used this for a few weeks now and wow, when i wake up in the morning my lips aren't even dying for lip balm! again, you only need the tiniest amount so this will last me a long time. #purchasejustified

in summary,

  • use a cleansing oil to give your Clarisonic a clean canvas to work with
  • exfoliate
  • moisturize your neck down to your clavicles!
  • use an eye treatment, apply using tips of the ring fingers
  • be consistent

what are some PM products you can't live without?

the time for a good skincare routine is NOW!,

current lemmings -- august beauty

READ MORE

01 | Tom Ford skin illuminating powder duo in moonlight (face focus collection, August 2015) -- one of the latest releases from Tom Ford beauty. this is a limited edition duo of highlighters used to, "capture the most flattering types of natural light on the skin" in a gel/powder formula (similar to Hourglass ambient powders). i haven't seen it in person, but the images are so pretty to look at! this is LE (limited edition), so if you are eyeing it, i do recommend that you purchase one now as most LE TF beauty products sell out reallyyy fast! great reviews and swatches on @temptalia, @TheBeautyLookbook, and @TheSundayGirl.
02 | Clarisonic alpha fit cleansing system for men -- not that this is something i'm lemming for myself... but i was SOOO happy when i saw this release a few weeks ago!!! (this is a great indication on how much i love skincare... when i get excited over skin products for men...) this is long overdue, but props to Clarisonic in making a brush for men. i like how the handle (or lack of) is designed for a man's use. in my opinion, men will be more inclined to use it and clean their face the right way! PS: it's never to early to start christmas shopping. just sayin'!
03 | Giorgio Armani luminous silk compact -- GA makes some amazing foundation, so i've heard. the luminous silk is one of their top sellers in fluid form, but this is the most recent release in powder form! 
04 | CHANEL stylo yeux waterproof long lasting eyeliner in pomme de pin (fall 2015 collection) -- finally!!! a black/brown eyeliner by CHANEL. PS: CHANEL beauty fall 2015 is stunning. 
05 | CHANEL les 4 ombres multi-effect quadra eyeshadow in 254 tisse d'automne (fall 2015 collection) -- this palette screams FALL with hues of green, peach, and brown. what a beautiful combo. my BFF purchased this, it is so pretty on her. i find myself drifting towards their counter lately just to look at it! if only i had time for eyeshadow. 
06 | deborah lippman nail color in it's raining men -- i have yet to try this brand! i've seen this color worn and it's so classy, the perfect fire engine red. 
07 | SK-II mid-day essence pitera spray -- misting has become... a thing lately. i can't rave enough about pitera, but wouldn't this would be a great pick me up? also travel size friendly at 1.7 oz. #mistyoself. 
08 | Hourglass ambient lighting powder in dim light (travel size) -- i have a thing... okay, maybe a slight obsession with anything travel size... and honestly, i know i am not the only one. (don't get me started on the travel size isle at Target.) this miniature is the cutest thing ever! not to mention, Hourglass powders are one of the best around.
