Hello, everyone and welcome back to Join The ME Project. Following 2 Freeman Masks to Add to Your Skincare Routine I thought it would be a great idea to go through my current favorite products. I’ve always had a love for skincare. But now that my skin has changed with the turn of the season, I’ve taken more of an interest.

My Skin Concerns

As I mentioned in the Freeman Masks review, I have several skin concerns. With my face, I deal with combination skin, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. Eczema is something I deal with as an all-over skin issue. Now that the weather is getting colder, I’ve noticed that I’m having more eczema flare-ups. And my skin is a lot drier.

What Have I Been Using?

I’ve tried many different types but none have helped my dry skin the way this one has. Some of the listed ingredients are vitamins C, E, and B5.

My eczema is particularly bad on my legs. And I’ve noticed a change in their appearance since I started using this lotion. Am I saying this lotion cures eczema? No. But it does help.

Typically, I use the Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel mask in the morning. I’ll use it maybe 2-3 times a week.

On the other hand, the Glacier Water and Pink Peony mask gets used all the time. I find it really relaxing. So to decompress from the day, I use it at night, maybe 5 times a week.

Now, sometimes I will switch to the Grapefruit wash that Neutrogena carries. But I tend to stick between these two. While acne isn’t one of my main issues, I like using this because I know its got coverage of these areas.

2 Freeman Masks to Add to Your Skincare Routine

Hello, everyone and welcome back to Join The ME Project. Autumn is my all-time favorite season, of the year. The weather is perfect and you get to watch the earth go through such a colorful transition. The only thing that bothers me is that I get awful dry skin.

Categorize My Skin

For the most part, I would say, I have combination skin. My main issues are hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and the random gigantic pimples I get from my menstrual periods. I don’t suffer from breakouts like I used to. That seems to have tapered off now that I’ve entered into my mid-20s.

But I’ve noticed that since we’ve entered Autumn and since I had my hip surgery my skin looks dull. I know part of that has to do with not being able to go outdoors. But I wanted to find a way to bring some life back to my face.

The solution actually came in the form of my sister. She lives a few states away but she came in for my hip surgery. She has such a ridiculous skill for bargain hunting that she usually has a bag of goodies for us. These masks were in the bag.

ir?t=jointmp-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B00RDJTKZW 2 Freeman Masks to Add to Your Skincare Routine November 2019 Brands Self-Care Skincare My Review

First off, I only had two issues with this mask. And they both occurred the first time I used it. While the directions say to apply a thin layer, I would leave that up to your own interpretation.

The consistency of this mask is a bit thicker than what I’m used to. And the first time I applied a layer too thin. It took me an awfully long time to peel it off. I finally had to facial wipe to remove the rest.

Additionally, I will say exercise caution around your hairline and eyebrows. The first time I didn’t and well, I paid for it. So you see my issues are really user error and no fault of the mask.

I absolutely love the smell of it. It reminds me of sweet iced tea in the summertime. Well, here where I live we just say sweet tea. Now, this past week that I’ve been using this I tend to use it in the morning. I find it works as a great pick me up.

So far I’ve only used three times but I have noticed a change in my skin. It looks toner and brighter.

My Review

Now, I have no grumps when it comes to this mask. Of the two, this one may be my favorite. This was my first time using a gel-cream leave-on mask. So I will proudly admit that I read the directions twice. Every other mask that I had been introduced to in my adult life involved peeling off, washing off, or wiping off.

Despite my hesitation, I was roped in by the description and that it ”replenishes dry skin”. I found myself hooked the very first time I used it. While I use the Sweet Tea & Lemon mask in the morning, I only use this one at night.

I take my showers at night, so adding this mask to my nighttime routine helps me wind down. The directions are pretty simple, you just apply it to your face. And then it slowly absorbs into the skin.

I also find the scent really soothing. So it all really all adds to the spa effect. Unlike the other mask, I’ve used this one every chance that I could. So I will probably need to buy this one again soon.

The KRIVE Shop

The KRIVE Shop 34

The KRIVE Shop

I recently found out about a new clothing brand and I wanted to tell you all about it. The KRIVE Shop ‘s main goal is to create clothing that is empowering, uplifting, and raises awareness about social and cultural issues. I got to do a small Q&A with the owner, Karla. So I’ll be sharing that today and featuring a few of their shirts in the post below.

20C0DB4D-8B61-41FD-8B58-0B027AD2DEA8-200x300 The KRIVE Shop May 2019 Brands Interview

Does KRIVE have a special meaning?

KRIVE dates back to my elementary/high school days where I would draw in my sketchbook and sign them off with a KRIVE signature. The K is first initial to my first name, Karla. RIVE is a portion of my last name (maiden) which is Rivers. And since it’s my shop, what better way to name it than after myself?

Greatness Is Within Me

Greatness Is Within Me Shirt $23.99+

Greatness lies within me! Believe it. Nothing else needs to be said.

Can you give a short summary of how the KRIVE Shop got started?

When I was in college I studied game design. But I couldn’t see myself being a game designer for the rest of my life because of everything that went into it and it’s hard to find a job in that industry. But in the midst of taking courses at Columbia College Chicago, I took a graphic design class and fell in love.

8C048B72-1329-42AA-A7FB-6E655E1B70D7-200x300 The KRIVE Shop May 2019 Brands Interview

When my father found out I switched to being a graphic design major, he gave me my first job, which was designing shirts for his organization’s’ convention. Seeing the look on people’s faces when they bought shirts that I designed and knowing that they would be wearing my designs really appealed to me. And that’s where my love of designing apparel began.

Proud Black Nerd $17.99+

Nothing wrong with being nerdy! Be proud of it! This tank top for women is perfect to flaunt in warm weather or cool enough to work out in.

What do you want your customers to take away from your brand?

  • The shirts are designed and made to order by me.
  • The designs are original meaning you can’t buy these shirts anywhere else.
  • I shoot my own photos for each apparel’s listing on my website.
