Lotions/ Creams -Shea Moisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Lotion
ljoseph29 9/16/2012 8:53:00 AM
This lotion made my skin feel soo soft and smooth!! It smells like tropical paradise and coconuts. Most lotions I used still made my skin look ashy no matter how much they claimed to be moisturizing. But this one proved me wrong. The only thing I dislike about it is, it comes with no pump and when it's finished you still have to try to get the rest of it out. I felt like I got cheated an ounce out of the product. Overall its great for people with dry skin.
Hair -Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap Purification Masque

This deep conditioner makes my natural hair feel so soft and moisturized! I loved how easily my hair detangled and it smells delicious like plaintains and green tea. The only thing I didn't like about the product was that it felt runny and had a bit too much water applied. It was pretty messy but I realized a little goes a long way if you section your hair and spray it on with a spray bottle. This stuff works waay better than the coconut hibiscus smoothie and the shea butter deep treatment masque. I will definitely buy this again!
I had this applied on by the makeup artist in the mac store. I don't know if she applied too much but it just looked unnatural for the first thirty minutes. It oxidized and finally gave me the perfect coverage I've always desired. But the sad disappointing comment I have about it is, it broke out my face horribly. I have sensitive combination skin and it made my nose look soo oily. I'm just happy I didn't spend the money to get it. I agree that you could easily smooth the product on with your hands and get blendable coverage but, this foundation is not recommended for people with sensitive skin.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - CURLS Coconut Sublime Conditioner
ljoseph29 8/28/2012 7:32:00 PM
This conditioner was the worst product I've ever used. I give it a 2 because it detangled my hair and I liked the smell. After I rinsed it out, it made my hair feel dry and crunchy. I had to purposely waste it to not feel guilty about how much I spent.
Hair -Shea Moisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
ljoseph29 8/20/2012 4:31:00 PM
The only thing I loved about this product was because of the natural ingredients and the coconut smell. But it left a film of white residue when my hair dried and it did nothing to enhance my curls. I also had people left and right asking me why my hair looks gray. It smells really good but the product is too thick. Thank God walgreens refunded my money back. I won't purchase this again.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme

I swear this so-called miracle buttercreme gave me the most horrible twist out. My hair was dry to the touch and felt as greasy as fried chicken. This stuff is goopy and smells like peppermint overload. This company is a pure joke when it comes their prices. I mean how could they price a jar of mineral oil for $32.99? Ladies don't even bother to spend your hard earned money on this product.
Styling Products -Shea Moisture - Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Soufflé

This product is horribly sticky. I applied it to my hair when I was doing a twist out. As I took out my twists, my hair was so sticky and grimy and still felt wet after I used it. I give it a 3 because it did stretch out my hair but it was just too gooey and the texture felt slimy. I'd rather spend that $10 on a bag of organic flax seeds and make a homemade gel that is not sticky. I don't recommend this product at all.
Treatments -Shea Moisture - Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque
ljoseph29 7/31/2012 7:07:00 AM
I wanted soo much to like this product but it just sits on top of my hair doing nothing for it whatsoever. I used it as a leave-in and when my hair dried, it left a slight white coating on my strands. It provides no slip and the product is very thick and gross. My hair did not feel clean and it weighed my hair down providing no definition. I won't ever buy this again and I'll just stick to the shea butter restorative conditioner.
This concealer is the best concealer I've ever used! First of all, it matched my skin tone correctly which I find many other concealers on the market to be too yellow or make my skin ashy. It blends very easily with a brush and its pigmented enough where a little bit goes a long way. I use this during the summer months because foundation can be too heavy and will easily come off. Its a bit expensive but its worth the money.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

I love this lip balm!! I tried the strawberry sorbet balm and it horribly chapped my lips. This one restored the moisture and the smoothness of my lips back to its original state. I would recommend this because of the organic ingredients and the convenient packaging. :)
Lip Treatments -eos - LE Strawberry Sorbet & Passionfruit 2-Pack
ljoseph29 7/26/2012 2:31:00 PM
This product makes my lips moisturized and I love the glossy finish after I apply it. It's convenient and I love the sphere shaped packaging. The only downside is that I have to scrub my lips with sugar before I put it on or else my lips end up very chapped. Other than that I love how it has organic ingredients.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner
ljoseph29 7/26/2012 2:26:00 PM
I don't really love it but I like how it easily applies to my eyes without dragging the delicate areas. It has a very black and creamy texture when applied and that's what I look for in all my eyeliners. The kajal shape of the pencil makes it easy for anyone who has trouble applying eyeliner or drawing a cat wing. I wish it stayed on my water line during the day but overall its a very good buy and worth it for a drugstore eyeliner.
Conditioner -Shea Moisture - Organic Raw Shea Butter Restorative Condition
ljoseph29 7/26/2012 2:16:00 PM
I love this conditioner! It makes my hair very soft and it feels moisturized after I use it. The bonus is that it has all natural ingredients and does not leave my hair feeling like I've applied too much of it. A little goes a long way. I can either leave it in or wash it out. I gave it a 4 because it does not provide enough slip for me to detangle my hair. It serves as a great protector for my hair when I go swimming.
Gels/Soaps -Shea Moisture - Organic African Black Soap
ljoseph29 7/26/2012 1:31:00 PM
This soap made my skin horribly dry! I was so ashy after I got out of the shower. I had to hurry up and save my skin from the dryness. If you are looking for a soap to moisturize your skin, this is not a good buy.
This mascara is horrible! The smell of the formula is very bothering. I could smell it all day when I had it on my eyes. It made my eyes itch the whole entire day! I give it a two because it did lenghthen my lashes but it irritated my eyes. I don't recommend this mascara to anyone.
