I’m about a week and a half into my new job, and so far, things are going well. This week is already flying by, which is a sign that I’ve been busy…which is good! I like the fact that there’s a number of different components to my job, which means I’m not spending 40 hours a week staring at my computer screen. Yes, I do spend a great deal of my time at a computer, but it’s broken up with client meetings and brainstorming sessions.
The only downfall to being so busy is that I have to neglect a couple of my social media accounts during the day. The main account that I can’t really give much love to during the day is Snapchat (you can find me by searching username “jackmise”). No one in my office wants to hear me watching people’s stories, or worse – recording my own! This just means that when I get home from work, I spend a decent amount of time playing catch up. Some people watch Netflix, but I watch people’s Snapchat stories. I guess that’s kind of the same thing?
As much as I love the beautiful, curated aspect of blogs and Instagram, I’m drawn to that raw, in-the-moment footage that you can only get with Snapchat. I think that’s why a lot of us find it’s such a fun way to connect with people!
I’m not sure if anyone actually pays attention to what I ramble about in my snaps, but you may remember that I recently talked a little bit about this amazing face scrub that I was using. Well, if you were wondering, the product I’ve been using is the White Jewel Peeling Scrub from THE FACE SHOP.
If you’re not familiar with THE FACE SHOP yet, I’d be willing to bet that you will be soon enough. The brand originated in Korea in 2003, but in the last year or so, has begun to open up stores in a number of Canadian shopping malls. THE FACE SHOP sells high quality makeup and skincare products, all of which are affordable. The stores are well-merchandised and any time I’ve been in, the staff has been helpful and knowledgeable.
I’ve been playing around with a few of their products, but since I love the White Jewel Peeling Scrub so much, I wanted to give you the run down.
Before you use the scrub, it’s important that you wash and dry your face.
Once your skin is dry, you can apply the scrub. It was a bit tough to capture in a still photo, but it’s enriched with pearl powder (hence the name), and it has a slight sheen to it before it gets applied to your skin. The science behind the pearl powder is that it nourishes skin and eliminates dead skin cells that can clog your pores.
All you have to do is massage the scrub into your skin for a minute or two. You’ll know when you’re ready to rinse it off, because it starts to “clump” up a bit as it removes your dead skin.
Once the scrub has completely transformed into this peeling-like state, it’s time to rinse it off!
Immediately after rinsing, your skin will feel smooth and refreshed. While there’s no “right” or “wrong” time to use the scrub, I recommend that you use it at night. My skin gets a little red from being exfoliated, but by morning, it’s back to normal!
