To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Ok, so winter is quite harsh on your skin, but you know what, so is summer. Even though sweat looks like glow in 9 cases of 10, sun and wine tends to dry you up. So, I gathered my best summer masks to *rescue* you from yourself and your summer habits.
I am doing my best to keep my skin moist and clean during summer. But I find it hard. Honestly there are so many other things I’d rather do. And when I fall asleep on the couch and sleepwalk my way to bed after 45 minutes of careful consideration is it worth it, the last thing on my mind is washing my face.
So in the morning, I always have to make it up to myself because my face feels like a windy beach. To me, skincare isn’t that much about looks when it comes down to it. Of course I love a dewy face with that famous glow, but it’s more a feeling to me. I hate my skin unbalanced.
Like I’ve written before, face masks are my ultimate quick fix. As soon as I have a slow morning, I do a face mask. And when I don’t fall asleep on the couch, I do an over night mask. Read about my favorites here.
But let’s get back to my summer favorites now.
Ole Henriksen, Berry Nurturing Gel Mask.This gel mask is one of my favorites rn. It’s so fresh and nurturing. I love to do this one right after I shower and having it on as my hair self dry.
Beauté Pacifique, Instant Hydrating Mask. Ok so I had this in my night mask feature as well, but it’s just as good to do as a regular 20 min mask. OMG you need to dry this right after a day in the sun. My skin soak it up like an Aperol Spritz.
Body Shop, Nicaraguan Coffee Intense Awakening Mask.This isn’t really a moist mask, but I am gonna feature it due to the scenario above (the one with me falling asleep on the couch). This coffee mask is literary a big cup of coffee in your face. Does magic for a tired, dry face. Combine it with a moist mask and you are ready for about anything.
Björk & Berries, Firming Hydra Mask.This is the ultimate post party mask. Firms up and add moisture at the same time as you feel somewhat cleaned up in the face. Doesn’t matter how many drinks you had last night.
Glossier, Moisturizing Moon Mask. This one has gotten pretty mixed reviews, but for me (mixed skin!!!) it’s a great option. Not greasy but not too light.
Body Shop, Mediterranean Almond Milk w Oats.This one I keep in my fridge (best hack for moist masks!!!) and put on when I feel like my skin has been through a lot (not washing my make-up off for several nights in a row). Moisturizing and soothing.
Klair’s, Vitamin E Boosting Radiance & Glow Mask. This Korean multi mask is just a miracle worker for glow. I use it as a mask, as an over night mask and even as a day cream on days I really need an extra boost and don’t want to wear too much make-up.
Ok, so I am gonna give you some final hacks I’ve learned. One can never do too many masks. Never put your fingers in mask jars, always use a clean make-up brush. Sleeping with moisturizing masks is the trick. Thanks for reading u guys.
