Here Is the Blue Mask Nina Dobrev and Her Friends Are Wearing on Instagram
Watch out, Blue Man Group! You’ve got some competition. Nina Dobrev posted a pic over the weekend of herself with a group of pals lounging poolside with their faces painted a eerie shade of cerulean blue. But it’s not face paint the ladies were wearing — it’s actually a mud mask!
Specifically, The Vampire Diaries actress and friends are wearing Glamglow’s GravityMud Sonic Blue Face Mask ($69), a limited-edition treatment created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog (!!) and the women gamers who love him.
“When I heard it was Sonic’s 25th anniversary, I knew we have to be involved and do a crazy, fun, and disruptive collaboration,” Shannon Dellimore, co-founder of Glamglow said in a press release. The product contains Glamglow’s signature Vizitight, which is a blend of their Firming Matrix, Marine Algae Plasma, and Biodefine Polymers, which tightens skin.
And it’s particularly cool because the mask turns metallic blue as it dries, and when it’s ready, you can peel it off to reveal brighter, more toned skin.
But don’t remove it before you take a selfie (and maybe a Boomerang of two) like Dobrev and her friends did!
Who’s going to add this mud mask to their self-care rituals? We know we are! Tweet us @BritandCo!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
