Review: Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask | Gin and Glow

Hi there! I'm so excited writing this because I'm going to review one of my favorite face masks from one of my favorite brands. It's the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask!

Fresh beauty was born in Boston, and ever since they have been making amazing skincare products that are safe and effective, each designed for any skin concerns and needs. Fresh also believes that beauty should be indulgent, which explains the amazing texture and scent of their products.

To be honest, I love Fresh's face masks. But today I'm reviewing this one since I've been using it quite often. According to Fresh, this mask is a facial in a jar that targets rough, dull and uneven skin for a brighter and smoother complexion. It's a multi benefit mask that smoothes and hydrates the skin made with a blend of kombu seaweed, lotus seed powder and red algae to gently buff and refine the skin.

Writing My Stress Away | Gin and Glow

Hey, I wan to apologize in advance because this post isn't about skincare or makeup or beauty in general. It's about mental health, it's about me and everyone else struggling with it. If you're one of them, don't worry I got you - or at least we have each other.

Mental health is often considered taboo, especially here in Indonesia. It's considered a disability. Only a few people talk about it. Most people just pretend it doesn't exist. But it's a real thing and I'm struggling with it. I seek professional help but I personally feel that writing everything down is a good way to get it all out of my system.

I've spoken before (or more like written) about mental health on my Instagram, which you can read here.

journaling for stress

I have depression and anxiety, such a deadly combination, and I want to say that recently I find journaling very helpful. Yes, me and journaling sounds very silly, you would imagine me sitting at a bar sipping gin and tonic but you wouldn't imagine me sitting on the floor with pen in hand, writing a journal. So this is my journal, I used this book from Sephora (I got it as a gift when I became a gold member).

If you're interested in how it has helped me, keep reading!
