I Promise Not to Rob Your House

What does a Floridian do when it’s overcast during the summer?

Celebrate cooler temps!

Last night it was only “feels like 95*F” during my run. What an improvement! Hah!

I was actually a little sad that the sun wasn’t out. I know once the time changes and I’m running in the dark 24/7 I’m actually going to miss the hot summer days.

I ran four miles and called it a day. How funny that it doesn’t even look like I sweat at all … I promise you I did!

During my lunch break at work I snuck away to Target because I needed to pick up some makeup removing wipes.

I ran out of the pack I keep in my running gym bag last week and I have to stop running with a full face of makeup on!

I guess the stress of the last few weeks has caused me to break out a little bit – and running with makeup on can’t be helping!

Obviously a few other things seem to have fallen into my bag while I was there :). I used up the last of my bday gift card – thanks mom!

One of the items I picked up was a Yes To charcoal face mask. I’ve been hearing a lot about charcoal cosmetics. Apparently it’s great for deep cleaning and getting rid of any acne…

The face mask itself is quite an INTERESTING item!

^ I look like I’m about to go rob a house!

I guess the mask is black because it contains charcoal but seeing myself with it on was jarring. And also funny! 🙂

The mask tingled a lot and was very sticky. Supposedly I should have woken up this morning with my pimple gone though. I’ll let you know tomorrow if it worked or not!

Have a great day!

Do you like doing face masks? Favorite brand/kind?
Is the weather getting cooler where you are? It’s Sept.!

    I’ve enjoyed the nice weather from the storms, too. This morning I woke up at run at 5am (full disclosure: I ended up deciding to go back to sleep) and the temperature was 75! Talk about fall weather!

    I always run with my makeup on. I’m just too lazy to remove it, and when I wash or wipe my face, I need to immediately put moisturizer on or else my skin gets really itchy, but it feels like a waste to put lotion on and then wash it off again after the run. Plus, the fresh lotion makes my skin feel REALLY sweaty. Now you know the secret of my post-run complexion haha!

    So does that mean you sleep with the mask on? I recently slept with a deep hair conditioner in my hair. My family made fun of me because I wore a shower cap over it. So cruel! Sadly, I did not wake up with much better hair. Apparently I just need a hair cut.

    Today it is much cooler here in Indiana! It’s only 75 degrees currently, when it’s been high 80s (+ humidity) the whole rest of the week. Apparently the weather wanted us to know it’s September, although you can never count on Indiana’s weather to be consistent. We could have a 90 degree day tomorrow or a 50 degree day, no one knows. 🙂

    About time you ran outside lol.

    Yes the weather is getting cool here. Sat for my long run it was magical. During the week it’s been about 80° when I run and about 95° during the day. But I can see call is almost here.

    Love the mask lol!!

    Your face mask!!! That is so funny, Kristina! Please let us know if it helped your face as my face EXPLODED this past week!

    I have used an Origins charcoal mask before and I think it helps but it leaves my shower a mess after I rinse it off. That pic of you is hilarious though, gotta love what we do to get rid of a zit!

    Your face mask is too funny! I have used stuff that is white and kind of grainy but that is actually a mask!
    Don’t you love when you have GC to shop – such a happy thing 🙂
    You know I can’t even …95 LOL
