I have been wondering when the best time to apply a facial mask would be. I am sure many of you wonder the same thing and a search of the internet shows people are clearly divided.
Some people think you should apply a mask before you clean your face and others believe you should apply the mask after you clean.
Those in the Mask First-Wash Second camp say you should apply the mask first because then your cleansing routine will wash off all traces of the mask.
Those in the Wash First- Mask Second camp say you should apply the mask to clean skin so it can have the full effect.
I personally believe in Wash First-Mask Second because I agree that the mask needs to sit on your clean skin to give the most benefit.
Personally I am currently using the Freeman Pineapple enzyme mask which is also a mild exfoliator. I wash my face with my cleanser first and then when the skin is nice and clean I will apply the mask in a circular motion.
I then let it sit for about 7 minutes so it can dry a little...then moisten my fingers and resume the circular scrubbing motion before washing off.
How do you apply your mask?

I just bought a new purse and I love it even though I have not used it yet. I am all about saving money where I can and I know that sometimes low priced means you get low quality as well.
However there are some times you can get good or even great quality for a low price. I bought a purse that cost less than $20 because I had a very good experience with the brand in the past.
I actually got it in tan but I cannot find a good image of the tan one so this will have to do. At less than $20 this bag is surprisingly sturdy. It is quite roomy, without being too large and I think the silver hardware lends an air of elegance that you just do not get with gold hardware.
It has three compartments and the two outer ones have a magnetic button, while the middle uses a zipper. My only complaint is that the middle compartment only has one zippered pocket on the inside, while my favorite purse has a zippered pocket, two medium open pockets and one small open pocket on the inside. Having that many inner pockets makes it easy to keep your purse organized because you can have a designated area for each thing.
I will use this purse as a going out/church purse and probably not for school because of the small number of pockets. I like having a separate pocket for pens, pencils, flash drives, and other school related items and this just will not work. In fact I may have to use individual pouches to get everything organized when using this purse. That may actually be a better choice as it makes switching purses easier.
