Shampoo - Shea Moisture - African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & RefreshScalp

I love SheaMoisture's products, and I think this is a good shampoo, just not for me. I have straight, medium thickness, medium density hair that is occasionally oily, but in general is pretty low maintenance. I'm not sure how exactly I ended up buying this...I think they were just out of the SheaMoisture shampoo I usually buy so I grabbed this instead. At first, I looooooved this …Read more

Shampoo - Shea Moisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Shampoo

May/06/2017

I am super weird about my hair. I hate washing it with commercial products, especially those that contain sulphates. For an entire year my only hair wash method was a once-a-week apple cider vinegar rinse; for a year after that I literally used no products whatsoever and only rinsed it thoroughly to keep it clean. My hair is straight, medium thickness and density, and very agreeable, which is why …Read more

Moisturizers - Shea Moisture - African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer

May/06/2017

I've been using this moisturizer for years, and we seem to have an on-and-off relationship. Sometimes I feel like it is singlehandedly the best product for improving my acne, while other times I feel like it's doing nothing or maybe even making it worse. Every once in a while I'll stop using it for a couple weeks, but I always find myself reaching for it when my skin seems troubled …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Acure Organics - The Essentials Moroccan Argan Oil

May/06/2017

Argan oil is probably the most versatile and natural product you can use in your beauty routine. I initially bought it to moisturize my hair, since I don't like all the additives in conditioners, but since then I've found plenty of other uses for it. Though it certainly isn't great for everything or everyone, here are some really cool things I've found you can do with it: …Read more

Scrubs - Acure Organics - Brightening Facial Scrub

May/06/2017

Definitely the best split between natural and effective that I have ever found. I try to make natural products a priority, but to be honest sometimes they just don't compare to the commercial crap. That's not the case with this scrub, though. It has a great texture for exfoliating, but isn't too harsh as to make my skin feel raw or parched. I had cystic acne for the longest time …Read more

Toners - LUSH - Tea Tree Water Balancing Toner

May/06/2017

You really can't go wrong with this. The ingredients, essentially, are tea tree oil and water. I think it's ridiculous that I continue to pay something like $11 for something that has literally two ingredients and I could easily make myself, but that's beside the point.

I love tea tree products, and Lush's toner is the best thing if you want some tea tree goodness …

May/06/2017

I'm really surprised by all of the sub-par reviews for this product, because I've been using it for months and have only had good results. Historically, I've had overwhelmingly terrible cystic acne, that could basically be controlled by nothing. I found that Lush's Herbalism did really well at managing my breakouts, but because I was still having some lingering cysts I added …Read more

May/06/2017

I LOVE THIS STUFF! For years, I had the most awful, uncontrollable cystic acne, with incredibly sensitive skin that was super easily dried out by pretty much all commercial products as well as the countless things prescribed to me by my dermatologist. I was just about at the point where I was ready to take Accutane, the pill that makes you immune to acne, but for some reason I decided to try this …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

Jan/17/2017

I'm glad to see that other girls with oily skin have had problems with this setting spray, because I was wondering if it were just me! Like a lot of others have complained, I found that my makeup was actually oilier after putting this on than it is without it. Usually my skin doesnt start looking oily until 6+ hours after I've applied, but when I use this setting spray it's oily …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED3 Eyeshadow Palette

Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2017

I got this palette as Christmas gift last year, and since then it's really been the only eyeshadow I use. I have green eyes and fair skin that is pretty close to an even split between yellow and pink tones, so it definitely works with my complexion, though I wouldn't say the color selection is my favorite. Sometimes I wish this palette had a better mix of warm and cool tones like the …Read more
