Skincare: Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful “Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel Off Clay Mask” (Product Review)

I NEVER THOUGHT ANYTHING COULD TOP THE “DUAL ACTION BLACK SUGAR AND CHARCOAL MASK” it’s designed for HEAVY DUTY acne/blackheads but tonight I needed something SERIOUSLY HEAVY DUTY! So I shifted through all my facial mask packages and decided to go with the “Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel Off Clay Mask” because it’s made to clean out clogged/grimy pores.

I really don’t care for the “peel off masks” too much. They’re VERY sticky and sometimes a pain especially if they’re clear.

But since this was a PEEL OFF CLAY MASK; I went for it. Now I was really looking for something to literally RIP all the black heads out of my pores and close them.  Lately they’ve been very clogged and disgusting so this seemed perfect and omg was it!

It’s not clear so that’s a huge plus. It went on like a mud mask which is also a huge plus. HOWEVER LIVE AND LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES.

This mask really does literally unclog your pores by RIPPING THEM OUT. Exactly what I needed and was looking for, but BEWARE! I put a little extra on for my horribly bad skin. I don’t regret that part. I used the entire package which probably could of done TWO applications MAX (a large bottle is avaliable for purchase).

WHAT I DID REGRET, is getting it too close to my eyebrows and hair line. This WILL RIP YOUR HAIR OFF all baby hairs beware! Also be careful underneath your eyes. The skin is sensitive and it hurt really bad when I peeled it off.

BUT OMG WAS IT 5000 times WORTH IT!

You could FEEL the gunk being ripped from your face as you peeled. All blackheads came off instantly. My face was left as SMOOTH AS A BABY’S BOTTOM. No joke. It was so incredibly soft!

No zits or blackheads in site and all my gigantic PORES closed entirely leaving my face smooth, looking nice and feeling fantastic!

The mask smells like lemon which is great, but it also burned when I first started to apply it. Remember to stay away from eyelashes, hair lines and eyebrows because this stuff UNCLOGS your pores leaving your face fresh and fruity scented!


I really should of taken an up close photo of my cheeks to show you how clogged and bad they were! This mask is amazing and believe it or not MY NEW FAVORITE FOR HEAVY DUTY GRIME!! I did cry a little bit when it was coming off so really beware but man does this stuff WORK! I won’t use it as my everyday mask or anything. I usually use the Chamomile Tea Sleeping Mask daily before bed but using this when you really need to lift your face and get a new one. This is it. Look no further I guarentee this WORKS like no other mask I have tried lately.

Simply fantastic. I’ll probably need it again cuz I can’t stop touching my smooth face with my damn fingers! It just hasn’t felt this amazing in a while. I definitely recommend checking it out. I’ll be getting a full size bottle of this from now on instead of the Charcoal & Black Sugar. I’ll still use it in the small packages but this is my new go to for heavy duty acne. Let me know what you think when you try it out! xo

Beauty Basics: Spring’s MUST HAVE Scent(s) – Watermelon Lemonade!

IMG_0388

IMG_0348

My all time favorite scent for Spring has officially changed! Last year I was in love with “Love & Sunshine” the Spring scent from Bath & Body works but it’s officially moved over for my new favorite!

Watermelon Lemonade, a smell so sweet I stocked up on scented candles, soap, lotion, hand sanitizers, if they had it, I bought it! It’s such a perfect scent for both Spring & Summer. Not floral but fruity with a bit of tart exactly as its described… It smells so great I want to eat it! My second favorite scent is the “Georgia Peach” it’s also another fruity one. Maybe I’m tired of the floral scents and need a change but all my favorites this year are fruit based. Third place is the Raspberry Vanilla.

What are your favorite scents during these hot, sticky months? xo

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Bath & Body Works Beauty Haul

Hey guys! I’m SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW! I FINALLY GOT AROUND TO TAKING PHOTOS OF ALL MY BEAUTY PRODUCTS!! They’ve been sitting inside of a bag waiting to be shot but I haven’t needed them until now, so I decided to shoot them in honor of my shopping spree this past weekend… LOL 🙂

So, these are mostly from Bath & Body Works. I got quite a few things from hand soap, to lotions, body wash, lots of hand sanitizer, etc.  I’ve split it into sections to make it very easy to explain… or easy for me to explain, not for you guys to understand hahah.

IMG_0307

This has seven different sections: the spring scent OG, new scents/soaps, makeup, hand sanitizers & scented candles, hair, “my personal SPA” supplies, skincare & the makeup removing supplies

IMG_0311

Obviously you guys are very familiar with my favorite facial care products/masks from Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful line. Below you can see a “Yes To” mud mask that I want to try and never have.  I have tried “Yes To” products before and love them.

IMG_0313

This is my “SPA” supplies section including bath salts, facial scrub, facial cucumber mask/accessories, baby powder, and a green organic soap.

IMG_0335

I had a lot of problems getting photos of these hand sanitizers… I already used all of my Watermelon Lemonade one which is my new FAVORITE scent for Spring.  I bought it in EVERYTHING from soap, to candles even my plug in air freshner was Watermelon Lemonade! More on that deliciousness later…

IMG_0344

Again sorry for the horrible photo.  I’m so glad Bath & Body works kept this one around! This was my favorite last year so I got it in everything from body mist to lotion, soap & extra lotion… Don’t ask it was an accident haha!

IMG_0348

My scented candles are amazing.  Georgia Peach is my second favorite of their new scents.  It’s really peachy.  Much like summertime air. Behind it are clothes and makeup wipes, etc.

IMG_0351

This is my wall plug in air freshener.  I already went through all of my Watermelon Lemonade and need to go get more! 🙁

IMG_0374

This is my new favorite thing on the planet and can be used for ANYTHING. My next blog will be a review of it and a more in depth of why I love it so much<3

IMG_0231

These are not from my Bath & Body Works Haul, but it seemed more appropriate to add them with makeup/beauty than fashion.  I’ve never tried fake lashes before except when I’ve had them put on me by a professional makeup artist.  ELF was selling things for $1 each so I got a couple lashes, a new Face Primer and some Acne Gel from Target.

IMG_0235

I cannot wait to try lashes though! Any tips for putting them on for the first time?

IMG_0366

This was everything… the section dead in the middle was my hand soap, body wash and this amazing lemon scented lotion that I love but my mom hates… HAHA! I also got a bunch of hair ties in every color you can possibly imagine. Whats your favorite scent/smell for this season or Summer? x

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Spring Sheets – Mint Green

So, I decided to go out with my mom to get some new sheets this past weekend because she needed some for her bed and I realized I actually needed some for mine too!  I was torn between two colors: mint green and coral.

Coral is a bit of an orange-red-pink color, I have a coral lipstick, I think it would of looked really cool because my walls are blue and I’m a diehard Bronco’s fan but my mom said it looked like a burnt orange… ultimately I went with the softer Mint Green sheets which were Vintage Prewashed and look AMAZING.  I needed a second pillowcase but they only sell two so now I have an extra case… but the sheets & the pillowcases both came with bags so I’m going to use the little bags for things 🙂

IMG_0210

IMG_0220

I also think the mint green will be a great backdrop in the future for photos of makeup & beauty products etc.  I tried it out tonight actually and I think it’s a lot better than the dark purple I was using before… the lighter color is less distracting.  Either way, I love the color and feel of my new sheets! So in love with everything… now to get a third pillow for the extra pillow case… lol

What color are your sheets? x

Beauty Tips + Review: How to Clean Your Hair While On the Go!

We have all been in a rush to go somewhere, running late, don’t have time to fully get ready. That’s why they invented “Dry Shampoo”.  I recently went out to the store and got myself a nice set of hair products including mousse, gel, hair spray & DRY SHAMPOO. I wanted to start off with a brand I’ve known and loved in the past and I’m so glad I did because this dry shampoo IS GREAT! I’ve had so many compliments about my hair smelling GOOD when no one knows I didn’t have time to jump in the shower! I also choose this because it’s a color protection product and I love having my red hair vibrant (the store has been SOLD OUT of my color since DECEMBER so that’s why it’s really awful right now!)

IMG_6949

IMG_6967

Although your hair is TEMPORARILY “clean” it still needs to be styled! For us natural curly heads (lol) brushing it out and leaving it “poofy” is a real mess! I usually am able to just “add water” and my curls bounce back but sometimes they need a little help.  Although I haven’t found anything that’s passed up my FAVORITE curling revitalizer by Kimble, “Say Yes’s Coconut Curl Defining Smoother” definitely takes second place!

IMG_6946

These two products alone did WONDERS for my dirty hair!  After applying my dry shampoo and brushing it out (which can be done in the car, etc!) Now that your hair smells GREAT and looks like a poofy lion’s main with no style what so ever, it’s time to fix it up!

IMG_6947 \IMG_6948

I got my hair wet in the sink and brushed the Curl Defining Hair Smoother into my hair.  I was originally going to give this a BAD review, but tonight I realized I just wasn’t using ENOUGH of the product! I brushed through my hair with the curling cream and decided to wait for it to dry.

IMG_6966

The one thing I DISLIKE about it, is it kind of leaves your hair a bit “crunchy” in some places like you used gel or mousse to crunch your hair. That leaves once it’s completely dry and you start touching your hair though!

IMG_6965

IMG_6969

IMG_6970

When my hair was FULLY dry, I noticed that my curls were definitely “defined” with everything from twists to spirals! This last photo was taken 3-4 hours after I was done “letting my hair dry” on my snapchat (rosependleton, but rosiesayshello has it’s own for photoshoots & events if you care to give either one a follow!) and tossed it over to get rid of the part. I’m simply in LOVE with how my curls came out! Definitely worth the price for when your curls just won’t curl or bounce, however as I said, nothing has topped the “Kimble Curling Revitalizer” but it’s sold in limited places and is quite a bit more money ($13 for 8oz bottle).

IMG_6989

You can get the “Color Me Happy” Dry Shampoo at Herbal Essence’s site or at any local drug store / Wal-Mart. You can also get “Yes To Coconut Curl Defining Hair Smoother” at Yes To’s website or any local drug store / Wal-Mart! Kimble is sold at Sally’s Beauty Supply, JcPenney’s & online. I rarely find it in the store. What do you think? xoxo

Product Review: Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful “Dead Sea Mask”

Hello everyone! Welcome to the brand new SELF HOSTED Rosie Says Hello! For my first post, I wanted to re-post (with slightly better photos) my all time favorite facial mask! It’s by “Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful” line and it’s the “Dead Sea Minerals Anti-Stress Mask”! Whoa! That’s a mouthful lol!

IMG_5788

One reason it’s my all time favorite is because it’s for ALL skin types so you can’t go wrong with it! I have quite a few masks from their line, I did a bit of experimenting since my skin can be both oily & dry depending on the day so I’ve almost tried their full line with only a few left in the basket like the Banana and the Chocolate masks! I’m quite sad they don’t sell all of their products in larger bottles! They only carry a few!

IMG_5811 \IMG_5815

Another reason is the scent that the mask gives off! Silly reason but if you LOVE the smell of the beach, the second you put this on, you will be in love too! It smells exactly like going to the beach (at least that’s what it smells like on the west coast) and I cannot get enough of it!

Another thing I should mention that has nothing to do with it’s cleansing qualities is the color! I love how bright blue it is because green is overrated and the brightness really helps you make sure you get it ALL off and don’t leave a small bit of facial mask on your face like the “Peel Off” kind which I seem to have a love – hate relationship with.

IMG_6971

Moving away from how it smells & looks, the mask is absolutely great! I haven’t done ANYTHING with my face in a while so it was getting pretty bad.  Usually I used a “Black Charcoal” Mask from their line when I haven’t done anything with my face and it’s really bad but only because it’s really “heavy – duty” for cleaning out pores, removing black heads & pimples. The cleanser really helped my face a LOT.  It cleaned it really nicely and I enjoyed the smell the entire time.  After I finished I applied their “Chamomile Sleeping Mask” which is basically a moisturizer you put on nightly before bed.  If you followed my other blog (WordPress.com) you probably remember me mentioning trying it out a month ago.  It has replaced my nightly cream in all it’s glory but I am still open to new things! I must admit though, the Chamomile Sleeping Mask makes your face as smooth as a baby’s bottom, but that’s a different blog!

IMG_6968

Please forgive the site for being all over the place, I’m still getting things together I was just so excited to blog once or twice since I spent all night creating the content! Please if you haven’t yet, check out all of Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful products and try one out if you can! They come in small packages with 3-4 appliances perfect for sampling before you fall in love! xoxo

PS. Once again, the site is not finished, still have some coding to fix, navigation, sidebar, etc. but it’s getting there and I wanted SOMETHING to be here!

PSS. Does anyone know any good plugins for “publicize” (which was WordPress.com’s way to sending your posts to your Social sites so you don’t have to.  They don’t have that for WordPress.org so I’m not sure which plugin to download!
