This scent smells nice and delicious. Its not too strong and I have a sweet smell lingering all night. I still love it but I'm bored of the smell. Time for something new.
Conditioner -Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap Balancing Conditioner

I love this conditioner as a co wash! Its moisturizing and detangles my hair easily! If you have hair that is unmanageble, this conditioner will manage it and the bonus is it can be used as a pre poo. I really don't like the smell but this one is a definite keeper for my co wash routine. *Update: Since I now use Terressentials mud wash, the conditioner is useless now. The mud wash removes the coating the conditioner would leave. I returned back and received a refund.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Vanilla Bean Noel Body Splash

It smells like a nice gourmet vanilla paradise! It doesn't last long at all that's only downside to it.
This is my favorite scent of all time!! It smells delicious and I would get so many compliments on how good I smelled. This really does cast a spell of love. I wish it came in a Eau Parfum bottle. I hope they don't discontinue this line like they did for the Slice of Heaven.
This scrub is too harsh for the facial skin in my opinion. The grains are too big and it felt I was scrubbing my face with sandpaper. It works really well as a body scrub but I don't think its for sensitive skin. If the grains were fine, I would give this product a better rating.
I believed the hype so much that I had this product for months on a wishlist. My mom bought me it as a gift because I had terrible acne and everything I tried never seemed to work. Well guess what? Did nothing like it claimed or promised! I was soo disappointed I almost threw it away. I gave it to my brother and it worked his skin but sadly, it counter acted against mine and my acne still hadn't disappeared.
Gels/Soaps -Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap Shea Butter Wash

Horrible, horrible, horrible product!! Made my skin itchy and ashy. Not worth the hype or the price.
Styling Products -Shea Moisture - Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
ljoseph29 11/4/2012 2:46:00 PM
First off, the price is outrageous for just a tiny bottle! I didn't really care for it because it did nothing for my hair. It did moisturize it but when I used it to twist my hair, the water content in the product shrunk my twists. It smells like a nicely done coconut smoothie. Yummy! Personally I may try it in the near future when my hair is longer but for right now, I don't want to purchase it again.
Mascara -New York Color - Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara
ljoseph29 11/4/2012 12:37:00 PM
Well that saying is true. You really do get what you pay for. This didn't do nothing for my lashes. I mean it made my bottom lashes look very well defined but it did nothing to boost the length of my upper lashes. I should've bought Rimmel's Sexy Curves instead.
Eyeliner -Cover Girl - Liquiline Blast in Blackfire
ljoseph29 11/4/2012 12:29:00 PM
I bought this on a whim because I wanted to just use an eyeliner that doesn't irritate my eyes. This eyeliner is a godsend! It never smudges, stays in place all day and is easy to apply and blend. I use this on my waterline and it always lasts. The bonus is that its easy to remove with soap and water. I used to never like Covergirl but I'm soo in love with this eyeliner. I would recommend this to people who don't wanna spend a lot of money on an eyeliner.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
ljoseph29 11/4/2012 12:18:00 PM
I LOOOOVVVVEEEEE this primer!!! I have been using it forever and I will continue to use to it. Makes my eyeshadow blendable, enhanced and pigmented. I have dark skin and usually there are eyeshadows that never show up on my eyelids. Well... this primer changed all of that. This primer is the ultimate go to and I never ever have creased eyeshadow! I mean seriously what more could ask for?! The only downside is even when its finished there is still product left in the bottle and I plan on removing the rubber stopper and using every last bit of it.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin
ljoseph29 11/4/2012 12:09:00 PM
This is my second favorite primer that I love using! I sometimes use it plain for a well blended shimmery gold eyeshadow and it never creases ever! I have oily eyelids but this product kept the oil away. What I love most about it is you can apply matte eyeshadows over the primer and they turn into shimmery eyeshadow colors! This is awesome for anyone who wants to save money by not buying shimmery eyeshadows. I love how I get lots of comments on how striking my eyeshadow looks. Its a bit expensive but it'll save you hundreds of dollars from buying sparkly eyeshadow in the long run.
I swear the advertisement on this deodorant is a lying cheat! I understand that sweating is the human body's way of clearing toxins but it just didn't provide enough protection. I smelled musty by the end of the day and was afraid to lift up my arms. It leaves a sticky residue all over my clothes. I mean seriously, what isn't bad about this product? I won't buy this ever again.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Terressentials Pure Earth Hair Wash Organic Shampoo
ljoseph29 11/3/2012 7:15:00 PM
I love this product soo much!!! My hair felt soo clean and moisturized! I was able to wash, condition and detangle my hair all in one. My hair is kinky and coily and this product does everything I want. It usually takes me two hours to do that entire process but now I spend 30 to 45 minutes on my hair. The shipping is expensive but hey I will never ever use another shampoo ever again! This is my staple product!
Gels/Soaps -Alaffia - Authentic African Black Soap - Peppermint
ljoseph29 10/4/2012 7:23:00 PM
I bought this at Whole Foods as a last resort because they didn't have my favorite Nubian Heritage bodywash. I really love peppermint scents so that's what really urged me to buy it. While I used it, my shower was filled with the perfect, aromatic balance of peppermint essential oil. When I say that was an awakening scent, it really was! It left my skin feeling minty clean and moisturized. I will repurchase this soap again and probably try the tangerine citrus next time. Idk if it is black soap because the ingredients would say plaintains and black ash, but then again it makes my skin feel glamorous.
