Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Argan Oil

4.0

Argan oil has been good to my 3c/4a hair. I mix with jojoba most of the time but it moisturizes better than most leave-ins, and doesn’t leave my hair too greasy, especially compared to other natural options. I stopped using conditioner and just apply a half dropper to my hair after showering. I usually wear my hair in a protective style so I haven’t had to really style with it - I would want …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Mentholatum - Melano CC Intensive Anti-Spot Essence

5.0

This is a good one, so good that I'm tempted to say HG. In less than a month my skin has changed noticeably. I've never had a topical product work this well for me - I bought this for PIE/PIH that takes forever to fade. On my skin tone marks from pimples last for months, but with Melano CC they've faded significantly enough that even people I'm close to have noticed. I spot …Read more

Polishes - Orly - Nail Polish

4.0

Bought Mauvelous and I am surprised at how long it took to start showing wear. For me, a nail polish taking a week to chip is really good, and this took about a week to start looking not so hot. The brush was easy to use and applied very evenly. It wasn't goopy or too thin, and it came out really pigmented. I think I did two coats and got good opaque coverage. It did dull with wear, but I …Read more

Lipstick - Morphe - Cream Lipstick

Bought this in Rebound. Really nice shade, kind of a rich and rosy mauve. It's pretty neutral as far as lip colors go, but flattering. I like this lipstick - it's moisturizing and creamy. It doesn't fade into weird lines around my mouth, just leaves a pinkish stain when it wears off. It isn't super long lasting so I do have to reapply when wearing, but it's not bad at …Read more

Sometimes these are on sale at Target, which is when I buy them. I like the colors I have, but I don't think I could wear them every day. Way too drying. They're not super super long lasting but not bad!

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - INM - Out the Door Fast Drying Top Coat

1.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I don't know why I haven't just bought a new top coat, maybe out of laziness - but it's worse than almost any other top coat I've used, so it actually wastes time. As someone else pointed out, maybe they changed the formulation on this. This stuff sucks. It peels off and it makes my nail polish chip after like a day. Even if I just do a coat or two of clear it just peels off.

Hair Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Organic Neem Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I am going to try another brand in the future if my skin breaks out again, but definitely make sure that the type of Neem you're using isn't in an oil that your skin doesn't like. It's hard for me to know if my skin is sensitive to Neem or the sesame oil it was in. Either way, fast forward to very quickly getting icky rough skin all over my face, and a cluster of pimples. I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Trader Joe's - 100% Organic Argan Oil

Love mixing this with jojoba oil and using it on my 3c/4a hair. It doesn't feel greasy, doesn't break me out, and it conditions just enough. Actually this mix is the only leave-in I use right now. It doesn't smell awesome but the scent isn't strong, and it dissipates. Great price and a really pretty bottle too.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Holy Snails Shark Sauce

I am pretty sure that my skin just hates niacinamide (or anything good I try to use on it) to be honest. I'm pretty sure that this made my skin break out, but c'est la vie. That being said, my PIE seemed to fade noticeably even in a couple of days, so if you're not sensitive to any of the ingredients in this, I fully recommend trying it! I also tried The Ordinary niacinamide, and …Read more
