Wine and Mask Wednesday (LoveMore Wine Yeast Sheet Mask + Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin)

Happy Wine and Mask Wednesday - this has been a really busy week so I am happy I can finally sit down, enjoy a glass of wine and a mask and share it with you guys! My theme this week is pretty simple - Wine. Here is a look at my mask of the week:

Lovemore Wine Yeast Silk Sheet Mask $2.50. Composed with high quality deep ocean water as base, add in selected top grade plant extracts and traditional formulation from all over Taiwan and then combine varies professional ingredients. It may not be the most expensive, but it provides the skin's most desired and most sought-after nutrition. Skin is left healthier looking and more radiant. 

I received this mask in the special Mask Genie Lovemore Mask Pouch - these masks are all made with a 100% silk mask so they feel amazing on the skin!

This mask is for whitening and brightening the skin - sounds like just what I need right now! If you are interested in seeing different Lovemore masks reviewed you can go here, here, or here

This mask comes in 3 layers - a thick bottom layer to help unfold, the mask, and a thin blue layer over top to protect the mask. To apply (after washing your face and applying toner), remove the thick bottom layer and smooth mask over the face - this is trickier than with most sheet masks as the silk is quite thin so be gentle! Once the mask is applied to the face remove the top blue layer and smooth mask out. Leave on for 20 minutes, remove and complete your skincare routine! 

I have been really impressed with the Lovemore masks I have tried - I love the silk texture of the sheet mask! This mask lasted about 25 minutes and the essence absorbed really well in to my skin! My skin felt and looked improved after using this! 

Now, to pair with a Wine mask, here is my Wine of the Week:
gnarly head old vin zin

Gnarly Head Old Vin Zin (Old Vine Zinfandel) ~ $17.95. Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is made using grapes sourced from gnarled 35-80 year old head trained vines. As some of the oldest vines in California, the fruit produced is exceptional, intense and full-flavored. This intrepid Old Vine Zinfandel has a gnarly core of rich, jammy blackberries and mocha flavors with layers of spice and vanilla balanced by complex French and American oak toast. Try pairing this bold wine with braised short ribs, chicken enchiladas or dark chocolate.

Is it bad that I think this brand's name is hilarious (seriously, I have the humor of a teenage boy sometimes)... the name just refers to how the old vines are grown.

The grapes for this wine are grown in Lodi, California - an area known as the Zinfandel capital of the world. So, this better be a good zinfandel!

This is a beautiful dark red color and is the perfect combination of flavors - it is rich and deep but finishes with the slightest soft berry flavor that doesn't leave you smacking your lips dry (I'm not the biggest fan of dry reds if you can tell!) I was quite surprised with how much I like this wine - again, I generally prefer lighter white wines, but this can hold up to a big dinner and finish with a great dessert. I really liked this!
