Good Morning, Afternoon, and Night! I'm the type of girl who loves frilly, Victorian, inspired fashions from Japan. A girl who knows her food, tea, and coffee as if it was a very extension of her being. I love finding the perfect reading spot and being there for hours. That's what you get when you want me to review something.
I received this product for free to review. It's not meant to hold or define anything on 4c hair. I tried it for a wash and go, as an edge controller, and finally on a protective style to see if it would define better that way. My results were a big no every time. It just melted into my hair as if I hadn't put anything in it. I wasn't surprised by these results. It's definitely meant for those with a looser curl pattern.
I swear these things will ruin you for all other cookies. I'm not sure where I found these or how the obsession with them started, but it has and now I can never go back to another cookie. A sweet, luxurious, decadent piece of chocolate on top of a crisp and buttery shortbread cookie. Nothing tastes better. No other cookie can compare. Just divine and perfect in every way.
Just watch out. It's super easy to finish a whole box in one setting. Not that you'll care about calories once you eat one. Worth it.
Oily skin is my life long nemesis. To help combat this trickster I usually stick with products that will help zap at that oil without zapping ALL of the moisture out of my face. So, on a whim, after running out of a toner I was using from LUSH (that was not really helping the battle) I decided to give this stuff a whirl. A good choice of weapon indeed my friends.
From day one I saw a difference in the battle. The oil was still beating at the front lines, but you could tell it was weakened just a bit. By the end of two weeks not only was my oil secretions finally turning tail and leaving the battle, but my skin tone was more even. The battle was won without a harsh road to victory.
To put it plainly. It doesn't dry your skin out, it helps to even your complexion, it does help with the oil over time, and it is not drying at all. My only complaint is that the bottle is small and doesn't last long. Maybe 2 months if you're not using it day and night, and honestly I think that time frame is generous. Love it!
I've had a love/hate relationship with Garnier's Micellar Water line for the past two years. Loved the concept of being able to cleanse my face quickly without having to rinse or use three different products. Hated that no matter which line I used it added more oil to my ready to fry chicken face. Well, Garnier must have listened because they came out with this new snazzy matiffying micellar water for oily skin and it WORKS. Without leaving your skin feeling dry.
I use it in conjunction with Shea Moisture Problem Skin Toner and boy let me tell you between these two products I have had no oily surprises. It has become a staple in my nightly routine. And yes it does wipe off makeup really well just like the other two; no harsh scrubbing necessary.
I found these by accident. I didn't know what they were, I just wanted something sweet that day and this seemed tasty. Woo boy am I glad I picked it up. These waffles are soft and gooey with just enough bite of crispness on the outside. I've had all three flavors, but honey is the best in my opinion. Especially when you have them with a nice cup of black tea or coffee. They're really hard to find. So far I've only been able to find them in my local Marshall's and Ross stores, but please don't let that discourage you from finding them. Make sure you do as the package tells you and set the waffle on top of a hot cup of whatever you drink. This will heat the waffle up and make the filling even more gooey and unbelievable.
This stuff is amazing. After one use my face was glowing like I rolled around in stardust. All you do is take this magic from the pack, slap it on your face, relax for 20 mins, and peel it off. Bam! Lotion? Nope! Highlighter? Please! Electric sander? Whoa, that's a bit much, but I promise you if you're breaking out the power tools for your face this baby is worth a try. I always buy mine from Ulta that way I keep the double bonus of being cheap and getting some Beauty Reward Points.
With so many cider choices out there now Angry Orchard is no longer my first pick, but it's a classic and still a staple when there isn't something better to consume. Has an okay flavor, not bitter, smooth with no bloat feeling you might get from drinking beer.
My hair is type 4c (oh snap right?), if you weren't aware 4c hair can be pretty fickle to deal with. There are millions of different natural hair products out there, and even with this wide array of choices I tend to find myself looking at my hair and being thoroughly disappointed with the results from them. So, what's a moisture starved girl to do? Keep spritzing the same watered down products on ignoring the fact that it's not hitting the spot, or keep spending hundreds of dollars blowing through mass marketed junk hoping to find the one. Needless to say, all was looking pretty bleak, and these two choices were driving me and my hair to near starvation (moisture wise for my hair, not being able to keep money in my pockets for me.)
I was about to give up when I found Juices & Berries in Target. I'm not going to lie to you, I did read the bottle and scuff a little at it's big declarations of juicy moisturized hair, but I tried it anyway in the hopes of finally find the one. Ladies, this THIS is the one. A few spritz of this magic and my hair was sighing a huge thank you. (Yes I could hear it.) My hair felt as soft and hydrated as if I had just stepped out of a warm shower. I've put this stuff on second day hair, week old hair, just washed hair, and the same results every time. My tresses love it. I love it! My wallet loves it!
Tips: Try spraying this stuff in right before you shower. The instructions say that doing this helps to draw moisture from the air once you're out and about, and trust me it's not lying. #moisture #naturalhair #4c #kinkycoily
