Hair Treatments - Shea Moisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

My hair: I'm biracial (African American and Caucasian). I have 2c waves mixed with 3a/3b curls. My hair is healthy, baby soft with fine strands, low density (thin due to PCOS), low porosity, and not color treated (virgin).


I've had the packette-size of this hair masque for a few weeks now, and this morning I finally got around to testing it. Per usual, I pre-pooed …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

The first time I smelled Mimosa & Cardamom I knew I needed a bottle. It's such a pleasant fragrance. It reminds me a bit of "Lei" by Emporio Armani (also known as "She") or even Victoria Secret Dream Angels Heavenly. This is just very soft and feminine. It's definitely what it says it is- mimosa and cardamom, balanced together and done softly. There's …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Peter Thomas Roth - Potent C Power Serum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I used my points to get a small container from Sephora (I think it was a 100 point reward). I have been using this every morning for the last week under my usual Clinique City Block Face Protector sunscreen/moisturizer.

First, this is more of a hydrating lotion than a serum. If you have oily skin then this could pose a problem. It also takes awhile to sink in, which I wasn't …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Chili

If you are warm toned and light-medium, medium, or medium dark, then please stop what you are doing and go order this lipstick.

I have at least 25 different MAC lipsticks, but for whatever reason passed up Chili time and time again. Last week I finally ordered a tube last minute with my Nordstrom order. I WISH I had purchased this last year for Fall because it is the perfect autumn …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Nasomatto-Narcotic Venus

3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I purchased a sample from Luckyscent.

Narcotic V aka Narcotic Venus smells nearly identical to Michael Kors by Michael Kors (used to be called Michael by Michael Kors). Period, point blank. I do think it smells slightly better and more natural than Michael Kors. There's a plastic note in Michael Kors that takes away from its floral beauty. However, I already own a bottle of …

Treatments (Face) - Peter Thomas Roth - Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

PTR's Retinol Fusion PM is a great "first introduction" to retinols. My skin can be sensitive with the wrong products and this has never given me any irritation. At night, after I cleanse my skin with CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, I shake the Retinol Fusion PM bottle really well and then apply about half-a-dropper amount to my entire face (including my eye area), neck, and …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - BYREDO BLANCHE eau de parfum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I received my sample from Luckyscent.

This is a pleasant scent. It reminds me a bit of Jo Malone's Wild Bluebell, with a touch of Dawn liquid dish soap. Blanche is definitely soapy and fresh. Definitely made for springtime and warmer weather. Good for the office.

I like it. Blanche is not groundbreaking, but it's nice and pleasant.

Fragrances - CREED - Love in White

I ordered a sample of Love In White because I heard Former First Lady Michelle Obama wears it.

I was prepared for Love In White to smell floral and lovely and classy. I was prepared to love it. But, I don't lol All I smell is dog shampoo! I don't know the brand but I swear this is what my late, great, and very beloved miniature Schnauzer smelled like when I would pick …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Nasomatto China White

2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I have zero idea what heroin or cocaine smell like (thank God), so I can't verify if China White is aptly named. However, what Nasomatto's China White DID remind me of was Thierry Mugler's Womanity, at least in the VERY beginning. I haven't smelled Womanity in awhile nor do I own it, but this is what registered in my "mind's nose" when I first applied China …Read more
