As I Am Curling Jelly

I decided to test out As I Am’s leave-in conditioner and styling jelly. I’ve heard great things about this combo. I caught them on sale at Sally Beauty Supply. It was BOGO. The leave-in conditioner is $10 and the curling jelly is $12. The So Much Moisture leave-in conditioner has aloe vera, lavender, and vegetable…

Birchbox: November & December 2018

Here’s a look at what I got for my November and December Birchboxes. I was pleased with the variety and quality of the products. Quip anti-cavity mint toothpaste. Never heard of it, but I’m always willing to try a new toothpaste. Full-size $5. LXMI-Creme Du Nil. This is a high-end face cream with an ingredient…

Drug Store Makeup that I Love!

I subscribe to several monthly makeup boxes, so admittedly I have loads of makeup. I haven’t needed to buy mascara in years. I usually get a sample that does a decent job. I was in Meijer the other day when I decided I needed a new mascara. One that does better than just a decent…

Jane Carter’s Curls to Go Curl Cocktail Cream: Does It Work?

In the past two months that I’ve been natural, I’ve accumulated a lot of products. I’m testing products and formulas to see what my hair likes. This week, I’m putting Jane Carter’s Curls Cocktail styler to the test. I need for it to define my curls, moisturize, and hold the curls for at least three…

I recently decided to stop getting relaxers and wear my hair as it grows out of my head…curly and coily. I’ve done this before. About ten years ago, I had a health issue that thinned my normally thick hair. I decided to wear weaves while my hair recovered. Soon my hair grew back longer than…

IPSY Bag–November 2018

Another cute bag from Ipsy.  A heart design is always a winner. The Balm Bonne-Dew Manzer is a topaz-colored, sheer highlighter. You can mix it with your moisturizer, primer, BB cream, or foundation. I have quite of few of these liquid highlighters, and I use them daily. It’s a great way to give your face…

Haul Time: Hair Supplies, Snacks, and More

For this haul, I stopped by two Marshall’s and Home Goods locations, Steinmart, and Fresh Thyme market. I needed a new hair dryer with a diffuser.  I was attracted to this lilac colored Revlon dryer. It only came with a smoothing concentrator, so I’ll have to buy a diffuser. It’s 1875 watts, has 3 heat…

Foreo Luna Fofo

I received the Foreo Luna Fofo in a Fabfitfun subscription box. It sat around for months unused right next to my abandoned Clarisonic. Finally, I decided to give it a try. The first step is to download the mobile app. It will guide you through the process of customizing your skincare routine. Through the use…
