Gold Peak makes a truly exceptional green tea. It's not too sweet, tastes real (as opposed to artificial) and it never fails to refresh me on a hot day. Pair it with a sandwich and a bag of chips and it's a great lunch time meal!!
I really wanted to love this stuff because it smells fantastic. However, after using it for two months, I have to admit that it does nothing for my 3C/4A natural hair. It just smells good, but doesn't make me feel like my hair has been treated well.
Since incorporating Thayers Rose Aloe Witch Hazel into my skincare regimen, my skin has been oh so very happy. It's great for using year-round, but during the summer months, I've found it especially helpful for keeping prickly heat at bay!
I went to my local bodega, because I was craving some aloe juice. They were out the the original in the green bottle, so I decided on a whim to try Aloe Gloe instead. Wow! Talk about refreshing!! It's a cold February in NYC, but I am very excited to grab a bottle when it gets hot!!!
I got this palette as a stocking stuffer after complaining for months about wanting the Naked palette. At first, I was NOT thrilled about receiving this less expensive alternative, but then I used it. I fell head over heels in love, and it continues to be my go to for eyeshadow!!!
This is old school hair gel, but I've recently realized my natural hair LOVES this stuff!! I use it for wash n gos, braid/twist outs and even had a BOMB Curlformer set using just this gel in place of setting lotion! It's cheap, I found it at the bodega around the corner from me(!!!) and it has definitely bumped way more expensive gels as my go to!!!
These cookies are my weakness. On a pamper me day, a nice pot of tea and a plate of these cookies makes WHATEVER I am reading, watching, or listening to a sublimely happier experience! I love how decadent they taste!!
