#SPOTLIGHT| L’Oreal & Everyday Minerals Skincare & Makeup Samples

Happy Monday everyone, we’re back at the beginning of the week. I’m honestly so shocked at how fast this year is going by. If you’ve read my Tags and Q&As| The Versatile Blogger Award you’ll know that I quite like napping. Yesterday, though my nap didn’t turn out right so instead of flopping around on my bed… Read More #SPOTLIGHT| L’Oreal & Everyday Minerals Skincare & Makeup Samples

#SPOTLIGHT Review| 7thHeaven Black Seaweed Peel-Off mask

These last couple days have been rough, I’ll admit. See previous post, #WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie, for more information on that. Earlier today, I was trying to think of ways to relax when I remembered that I had a mask pack that I never got around to trying. And let’s be honest, everyone needs to pamper themselves… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review| 7thHeaven Black Seaweed Peel-Off mask

#SPOTLIGHT Review| Garnier SkinActive Soothing Cleansing Milk

I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found this in the mail when I came home from lunch. I mentioned in the #SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex post that I was looking for new skin care products to try and boom, found one!… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review| Garnier SkinActive Soothing Cleansing Milk

#SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex

I only had to use one pad to clean my face and I felt like my face was clean. I didn’t feel like I needed to wash it more. Now I have quite a bit going on with my skin on my face. I have oily-combination skin, hyperpigmentation, and scarring from picking at pimples. I’ve been using this product for months and I can truly see a difference in my skin. It feels smoother and my scarring is less noticeable. I’m going to be a little bit sad when I finally use the last one. So if you know of a product like this let me know or Dr. Jeffery Dover if you could make more, that would be great thanks.… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex

#TackleThatFro| I Give Up Creamy Crack!

My mother was a child in the 60’s, in her teenage years by the 70’s. And at that time there was such societal pressure for black women to fit in with the rest (the same can be said for today). I can say from experience that natural hair definitely makes you stand out. But during that time, they were told, “Your hair would look so much prettier if it was straight.”, “You look unkempt with your hair like that.” Words like these influenced some of them to blend in and that influence trickled down to later generations. … Read More #TackleThatFro| I Give Up Creamy Crack!

Introducing, #TackleThatFro Natural Hair Series

Believe it or not, this isn’t my first time writing this post. I had everything done, then I went and made a mistake. I’d started writing this post on my phone, then I switched over to my laptop. Later on, I got back on my phone the app did a progress update. The only thing… Read More Introducing, #TackleThatFro Natural Hair Series

#SPOTLIGHT Review| St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Exfoliating Facial Scrub

I have oily-combination skin on my face. And that seems like a simple term, but for me it’s quite complex. My forehead and the area around my nose try to compete with the sun to see who can shine the most. While my chin and cheeks dry out in the desert.… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review| St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Exfoliating Facial Scrub

#SPOTLIGHT Review| e.l.f Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder Dark/Deep

It describes itself as a sheer tint on the packaging. And coming from a woman who went from wearing no makeup at all, I have to say I like it. It doesn’t feel cakey to wear. I used this along with the e.l.f Flawless Finish Foundation and both lasted the duration of the wedding and reception.… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review| e.l.f Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder Dark/Deep
