LUSH and Homemade Matcha Face Mask

It is a fairly well-known fact that the skin becomes dry during the winters. Leaving your skin feeling tight, rough, and itchy. Skin gets dry because the harsh wind and cold weather irritate it, and the lack of humidity in the air causes it to lose moisture rapidly. As we age, winter dryness becomes worse because the natural oil layer in our skin is depleted. These face masks were truly heaven-sent. I love all Lush face masks, but this Oatifix is definitely my numero uno. I immediately have baby soft skin after using it. It smells so delicious (like baked goods)…it seriously makes me want to eat it every time I use it! lol It just smells so absolutely amazing and leaves my wintery skin feeling very moisturized, hydrated and brighter. Anyway, I use this mask every other day and Love Lettuce twice a week. They both give my face a nice glow.

I start my day with coffee and end my day with wine. #fact *:) Mimi Claire, this website/blog, symbolizes my foray into the world of baking and cooking. It was born out of my childhood passion in exploring and inventing different types of original recipes with a twist. What started as a self-taught passion journey has been transformed lately into a lifework in my attempt to share my discoveries and tastes thru this channel with like-minded people all over the world. I hope to achieve the fine mix and taste in between the Filipino, Japanese and French cuisine arts in my dreams of becoming a full-fledged chef in my own café/restaurant venture someday. I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Tokyo in 2014 with a Patisserie Diploma and will continue to study French cuisine sometime soon again. I am currently attending one of Japan’s most popular cooking schools, the ABC Cooking Studio to learn more about Washoku (Japanese Traditional Cuisine) and Wagashi (Japanese Confectionery). Please bear with me in my personal journey in this life-work I have chosen for myself. xo, Claire
