Cleansers - Basis - Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash

I've been trying to find a new HG cleanser after losing my beloved Rachel Perry Tangerine Dream. The RP cleanser kept my oily, acne-prone skin completely clear and I just haven't found another product that has done the same for me. That being said, this product was ok, it was good at removing dirt, oil, and makeup, but still made me break out. The added pore-clogging silicones (to make …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Nubian Heritage - Honey and Black Seed Lotion with Apricot Oil

Oh my God. Like the other reviewer, I can honestly say that this is the BEST lotion I've ever tried. First off, the SMELL is delicious - like honey! It spreads on really thick, and at first I worried that the whitish cast would not go away and that the product would be greasy. Within a minute, the shea butter sunk into my skin and left my skin moisturized and soft without being greasy …Read more

Tried it because of the rave reviews, but this just didn't work for my light-medium complexion, and applied too dark even with a light hand. The color was not flattering and did not look natural. Back to Foolish Me.

I bought this based on reviews to replace my beloved Rachel Perry Tangerine Dream cleanser, which apparently has been discontinued. I'm not a fan of chemical-laden cleansers, and my skin isn't, either. I hardly broke out at all while using the RP cleanser, but I have been breaking out since using this one. Ironically, my skintone has evened out much more quickly than when I was using …Read more

For months, I have been breaking out horribly all over my back from (stupidly) using coconut-oil based soaps. NOTHING worked at getting the breakouts to go away - I was using every acne remedy I knew of - nothing worked. In the 4 days I've used this so far, my skin has cleared up MUCH faster than from all the treatments I've put on it for MONTHS... enough said. The smell isn't that …Read more

I'm completely addicted to these soaps. I've used the Olive Butter, Shea Butter, African Black Soap, Goat's Milk and Chai, Hemp and Vetiver, and Coconut soaps and they are all are amazing. One caution to anyone with acne-prone skin: some of these have coconut oil as a base and may clog pores, so keep away from areas prone to breaking out. The Goat's Milk and Chai and Shea …Read more

$21 for this tiny tub of conditioner is crazy. But slather this through your hair, leave on for 10 minutes or so and your hair comes out buttery soft and shiny. The scent is a bit herbal, not unpleasant, and certainly not like green curry (?). I want to say I wouldn't purchase again because of the price, but the results are definitely worth it. Somewhere, my wallet is quietly weeping.
