7 Leaders Insolution Sheet Masks in 7 Days | Beauty Review

Thanks to Leaders Insolution for partnering on this post.   The Best Leaders Masks to Try Now I’m a total sheet mask junkie. They’re like a magical band aid for your face full of skin quenching ingredients like hyaluronic acid, collagen and – I simply can’t get enough. I’ve tried every brand under the sun […]

I haven’t treated myself to a facial mask in a while. I’m going to browse further on your list and see which ones I’d like to pick up!

Sue @NoFixedAbodeForSueJanuary 9, 2017 - 4:08 pm

I love a good face mask. One of my daughters is hoping to work in the beauty industry and so is always experimenting with new products (on her and me) I had not heard of this brand before, so something new to try, how fun.

DeeJanuary 9, 2017 - 9:36 pm

I honestly never used a mask before, but I have heard some really good reviews about them. I am going to have to try to it a try myself.

MarysaJanuary 9, 2017 - 9:43 pm

I have heard of these recently, but honestly I didn’t know what they were all about. These sound really nice – I like that you mentioned they don’t have a strong scent. I wouldn’t know how to use these, without having read your review. Glad to hear I can find these at Ulta!

censieJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:11 pm

As I get older I find that my skin is getting worse when it comes to break outs. I am wondering if some of these products would help that. I really need to find a new skin regimen to help with the break outs.

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:47 pm

it’s a korean skin care brand and not as well known in the us (yet) but definitely try it out! you and your daughter will love it Sue.

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:48 pm

Ah Dee you have to try one! they are really great quick fixes for dry or dull skin and very very affordable for frequent use :)

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:54 pm

glad you found the review helpful Marysa! let me know if you like them :)

SherJanuary 9, 2017 - 11:56 pm

Hi Censie – for breakouts I would recommend a gentle AHA product to help clear out the dirt and oil that accumulates in our pores. I’m using nip + tucks glycolic pads right now which are extremely gentle and have left my skin breakout free + super glowy.

sheet masks are better for maintaining moisture and glow to the skin. for acne especially in older skin which tends to be drier and less elastic, AHA and BHA products are great. in the ingredients list you want to look for things like lactic acid, glycolic acid, etc.

Jennifer SieglerJanuary 10, 2017 - 1:13 am

This is the first time I heard about this brand and I would want to thank you for your honest review. I agree that the most frustrating thing with masks is that some of them do not “fit” and have lots of air pockets when applied to the face. I read you mentioned this brand is not that way at all. I will have to get these leaders Insolution Masks!

ValerieJanuary 10, 2017 - 9:24 am

I really need to start taking better care of my skin. I could use a good face mask and this one looks like a decent option. I will look into it.

Melissa DixonJanuary 10, 2017 - 12:18 pm

I have never heard of this brand of products before but I would love to check them out more. I am always on the lookout for products that actually do what they say they do. This sounds perfect for me and what I have been looking for.

SherJanuary 10, 2017 - 12:24 pm

So frustrating right? I hope you try them out – let me know what you think of the fit Jennifer :)

FarrahJanuary 11, 2017 - 10:39 am

I am new with all this beauty and skin care, so it’s about time for me to try a different facial mask!

6 Unique Things to do in Portland | Jamaica Travel Guide

Rafting on the rio grande, swimming in the blue lagoon… here are all the best things to do in Portland, Jamaica!


AubrieJanuary 7, 2017 - 1:41 pm

This place looks so beautiful!

SherJanuary 7, 2017 - 3:40 pm

Thanks for stopping by Aubrie!

[…] I just returned from Jamaica last month and it was hot, hot, hot! I visited Kingston and Port Antonio in 5 days, 4 nights on a relaxing getaway focused on beautiful natural sights like Frenchman’s Cove, the Blue Lagoon and the coffee-heavy Blue Mountains. You can read more about my trip itinerary and the top sights I recommend in this post, Rafting on the Rio Grande and Other Must Do Things in Portland, Jamaica. […]

Heather @ Country Life, City WifeJanuary 17, 2017 - 12:31 pm

I have spent a lot of time in Jamaica! I’m from Miami originally and my mom used to work for the airlines, so my friends and I would go on buddy passes then pool our money together in college to get nice suites! Back then Jamaica was really cheap, too LOL. A great list you have here. Thanks for bringing me back to some good memories.

HeatherJanuary 17, 2017 - 12:44 pm

Lots of beautiful sites to see. I have never been to Jamaica. People say it’s dangerous so I never put it on my list.. Rarely have I heard about this side of the story. My first stop would be to enjoy the delicious fare.

kristi@ishouldbemoppingthefloorJanuary 17, 2017 - 2:29 pm

My teenage son was just saying how he wanted to see Jamaica one day soon! I can’t wait to show him your travel guide. This may be the start of our summer vacation planning. Loving the Swim & Swing…looks like a piece of heaven right there! Thanks for sharing.

Kathy MyersJanuary 17, 2017 - 3:59 pm

You are so lucky, this place looks amazing. I can’t imagine ever wanted to leave. Those pics are to die for! It looks like somewhere I would want to travel.

Stephanie JeannotJanuary 17, 2017 - 7:19 pm

Your photos make Portland, Jamaica seem like such a luxurious place. I have been to a few places in the Caribbean but have yet to explore Jamaica and would really like to. Especially the Lagoon. Your photo of it looks so nice and comforting. I can tell that you had a great time.

KristyJanuary 18, 2017 - 10:29 am

I have always wanted to take a trip to Jamaica, the views and beaches are amazing. How neat to be able to float down the river on a bamboo raft. I’ll defintely keep your travel guide in mind when we plan our trip!

EchoJanuary 18, 2017 - 2:30 pm

Can I do all 6 of these please?! Wow, what a gorgeous and amazing place. I definitely would mind spending some time in the blue lagoon or swinging in the cove or anywhere in Portland, Jamaica really! Wow!

Wonderful photos Sher, sounds like a great trip. I just shared your post with some friends who want to go to Cuba in a few months.

SherDecember 24, 2016 - 5:26 pm

Glad you think so and thanks for sharing Mike!

sarahJanuary 2, 2017 - 6:23 am

Wonderful photos Sher, sounds like a great trip. I just shared your post with some friends who want to go to Cuba in a few months.

MariaJanuary 16, 2017 - 12:49 am

Will be going to Cuba in a couple of weeks. I’m so glad I found your website! I found a couple of “Cuba Travel Guide” apps in the the app store – which one (by which developer?) are you referring to?

SherJanuary 16, 2017 - 6:50 pm

Thanks Maris, glad you found the posts helpful. I didn’t download the guide for my trip since I couldn’t get strong wifi but I believe it was the tripwolf one. There seem to be tons of similar options in the app store so maybe download them all and see which one you like best? I personally prefer to download the offline city map via google maps. Never fails! :)

45 Magnificent Photos That Will Transport You to Havana, Cuba

Cuba is a photographer’s dream. Grand European architecture now fallen into disrepair.. charming locals engaging in daily life at all hours of the day.. vintage cars from the 50’s that look brand new – every moment was just waiting to be captured on film.


Cherene SaradarDecember 24, 2016 - 2:00 pm

Your photography is STUNNING! I live in Miami so I need to get my ass to Cuba soon. 90 miles away!

EllaDecember 24, 2016 - 2:06 pm

Wow, I had no idea that Havana was so gorgeous! The city looks so beautiful and it really looks like the whole city is just one big art display! Your photos are stunning too, I would easily buy a print to hang up on my wall. Or maybe 5 because it would be hard to pick haha. They’re really beautiful photos :)

Great post! Loved reading this as I was also in Cuba during the mourning! I arrived in Cuba the day Fidel passed and was staying there until the end of the mourning. We stayed at a casa particular and our casa host was the one who told us about Fidel’s passing. Cuba was so interesting! Glad you had a great experience like we did.

Thank you for a beautifully written encounter.
