Lavish your hair and skin with the very best in hydrating beauty treatments – Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil®

I tried the products each individually for 2 weeks and here’s my thoughts on all of it.

The Ultimate Argan Oil Deluxe Exfoliating Soap ( IK mouthful) is meant to Tone, Exfoliate, and Brighten, ridding the skin of dead skin cells and giving the skin a natural glowing complexion. This was my favorite to test out, as soon as I got it in the mail I used it that night. This exfoliating soap is made of small exfoliating beads which you can feel soon as it hits the skin. Their are tons of exfoliating soaps that can be pretty abrasive on the skin, but this soap, in particular, is not abrasive, it almost feels like regular soap. I love using this soap on my face and body, it feels like it’s doing the work of 3 different body scrubs. After using this my skin feels smooth, and super clean, no need for the gang of cleansers, using the soap and a light moisturizer gets the job done. Since I’ve been using this soap my skin is incredibly smooth and I can definitely feel a difference in texture, as for the brightening of dark spots and skin, I don’t think I’ve used it long enough to see any improvement in that area, but that doesn’t change my opinion about the product, overall great product. It retails for $6

I got to try 2 different sheet mask, one the Ultimate Argan Oil Brightening Mask + The Hydrating Mask. 

I love a good sheet mask, I mean you can just leave it on  your face and let it do it’s work, while you’re updating your Instagram page, or something of that nature. Both mask are infused with Argan Oil, and are free of alcohol, which is amazing. Lets start with the brightening mask, this mask is meant to restore balance in skin cells to naturally brighten the skin, as well as, hydrating the skin. I love any mask that will clear, and restore the healthy glow of my skin without stripping my face of everything that keeps it hydrated. Each mask box comes with 4 individual sheet mask, which is just enough. So far, I have used 2 of the 4 mask and really enjoy it. The product that the sheet mask comes in is what I’m drawn to, the mask is nice,but after it dries, it has left over product that you can rub into the skin, and it dries down, but not super drying. The brightening mask has to be my favorite, I can definitely see results with the uses, I really enjoyed it. The Hydrating Mask is meant to hydrate, and restore radiance in the skin, I’ve only tried the mask once, but in that one use my skin did feel hydrated and not drying at all. I will have to use this more, but the one time was great. Each mask set retails $45 which is pricey, but for 4 mask I feel like your getting your money’s worth.

Lastly is the Argan Oil treatment serum,

I love serums, I have a ton of facial + body oils that get the job done. This serum is infused with Argan Oil, and high concentrations of fatty acids, and vitamin E. Now when I looked on the website it says its a hair oil, but I have been using this for my body and it seems to be working better than half my moisturizing collection. I love this serum, it’s super lightweight, and the smell is not overpowering. I’m half full with product, because I’ve been using it religiously since i’ve gotten it. I do love the way it works on my skin, and I can use it in my hair, so that’s just an added bonus. This serum retails for $16.

Diety America Hair care- Collection

PR samples courtesy of Diety America, all opinions are my own.

Hi Lovelies,

Hair Problems, something everyone goes through whether its heat damage, to thin, or just flat I haven’t came across a girl whos’ hair was just perfect, unless you’re Sofia Vergara.

It wasn’t until 3 months ago that I heard of Diety America, if you don’t know who they are here’s a little insight. Diety America is a hair brand that helps with healthy; natural regrowth. All of the products are based from Tibet, and Chinese herbal extracts, also carrying ginseng, wheat, protein, and Avocado. This brand couldn’t have contacted me at a better time, especially since my hair was in the process of breaking off. Through contacts they wanted me to review for them, and it didn’t take long to say yes.

What they sent were 2 leave in conditioners, Plant shampoo, a heat protectant, as well as, a serum dropper and a scalp treatment.

I tried this entire collection in the course of 3 months, in moderation of course.Now that I’m done rambling, let’s talk about the products.

lrm_export_20170119_1304311

The Super Gro Serum Nutmeg + Serum Gro scalp Treatment

I use these every night just to keep my scalp from being dry, because my hair soaks up moisture. The super grow w/nutmeg is very lightweight on my hair, it has a mentholated feeling when I apply it to my hair. Its made with Asian herbal extract, Chinese ginseng extract, Nutmeg Oil, Argan Oil, and Knotweed, all are ingredients made to grow healthy hair from the root, as well as, protect hair from breakage. With the nutmeg you definitely can smell it in the ingredients and feel a burning sensation as well. The Serum gro scalp treatment is similar to the super gro but without any nutmeg, or menthol. I prefer the super gro with the nutmeg, but both works just the same.

Leave in Hydrating & Repair Scalp Treatment / Deep Penetrating Conditioner

The Hydrating leave in conditioner and the Deep Conditioner were my favorite products to use weekly. The hydrating leave in conditioner is made up of Water, Soy Protein, Ginseng, Shea Butter, Asian & Tibetan herbs, and Knotweed. The hydrating conditioner I liked because it could be used as a styling product or just to condition and wash out. It really is a hydrating conditioner, it is kind of, heavy so you don’t need much. As most conditioners its meant to repair the hair and keep breakage from happening. I used this twice a week and by the end of the week wash it out, because the build up can cause your hair to feel sticky. The Deep Condition , is made of Tibetan Herbs, Aloe Vera, Ginseng, and Avocado, all ingredients that promotes healthy hair growth, and stops breakage. The deep condition acted like a hair mask, when you apply all over the hair it hardens and you leave it on for about 15 min, then wash it out. I think both of these combinations helped my hair the most, because I did use these as my holy grail products. If you’re trying to grow your hair, these are my recommended products, because these duos have a combination of hair growth ingredients, and you can use it weekly if not daily.

The Plant Shampoo

I really like using the plant shampoo, made of the same as the leave in hydrating leave in conditioner, the plant shampoo is an all organics shampoo that helps repair hair. I used the shampoo and the consistency is very thick, it smells like grass, yeah that’s how natural it is. It really did help my hair to stop breakage. I used this every 2 weeks and within the first months usage, I could see a difference. I really do like the way it lathers my hair and that its not filled with alcohol and parabens, which are both harmful to your hair.

Repairing Essence Daily Moisturizer lotion

I normally do not like lotions in my hair mainly because, lotions tends to make my hair sticky and stiff, The daily moisturizer changed my entire opinion about certain lotions. This daily moisturizer contains Amino Acids, Vitamin C5, Ironic Protein, and Collagen. This is a daily lotion, which you can use daily, but I only used it when I used the deep conditioner, to keep my hair hydrated and shiny. This lotion works really well, its not like any lotion I ever tried, its light weight, the consistency in my hair is nice, it doesn’t weigh my hair down at all.

As for the entire Diety America collection, I really liked the natural quality of the products, I have used tons of “natural” products but these products takes the cake. I think that as far as the ingredients, being free of sulfates, and parabens are always great. the shampoos’ and conditioners works well together. I highly recommend this brand to people who liiivvvee for organic and Au’ natural products.

Belize in you | Skincare

black-and-white

Hi Lovelies,

Winter is here and the topic of skin is a popular subject. I myself love a good skincare regimen, but with newer more prominent products coming out, my routine is constantly changing. When it comes to my skin its normally cleanse, tone, serum, and moisturize, so when I heard about Belize in you skincare I couldn’t wait to add them into my routine.

b+w 2.png

Belize in you Marine and Body Care is a health/beauty company that uses all natural and raw materials for the Caribbean waters and Mayan mountains of Belize.

When I got contacted through pr agents to try a few items, I was excited yet hesitant, I literally had an entire conversation with myself, before replying back. When you get used to the products that you use daily, it kind of a switch up when you have to change it, but anyways I chose a toner and serum, just to see what their products can offer to my skin.

 black and white 3.png

I got the Marine mineral skin toner and the Rooibos tea antioxidant facial serum. Lets talk about the marine toner, the toner looks very much high end skin care, as a matter of fact the cost is pretty much high end, it retails for $55. The product also is 4 fl oz, so your getting a ton of product for what your’e paying. After doing a morning and night routine, I can see a bit of a difference, I’ve used this for about a month, and my skin feels very refreshed and hydrated, some toners have that drying effect on the skin and with the winter here, dry weather and dry skin are both negative factors. The Marine mineral skin toner has ingredients of water, seaweed extract, Phenoxyethanol, which I’m sure is a long word for natural..I guess, this toner is half gone I really enjoy using it, its lightweight, the only thing that that I can say negative is that the pump shoots out to much product, which is really wasteful, a little product goes a long ways.

The next product I tried was the Rooibos Tea antioxidant facial serum, I was really excited to try this serum, this retails for $88, this serum is made of water (aqua), Red tea, phenoxyethanol, and Hyaluronic Acid. I really love this serum, its an antioxidant which is great to help pull toxins from the skin after cleansing your face, its really light, and liquid-y, you only need about 2 pumps, because its easy to disperse over your entire face. The Rooibos tea serum, is very nice, its wet on the face, but once it dries it gives the feeling  a tight mask. The serum is more easy to use than the toner, you can control how much you want to use, which is really nice.

I feel after using both in my skin  routine, has been a great addition, my skin feels very hydrated, and firm. I usually have a problem with scaring,  but they do seem a tad lighter, which is a bonus, but most of all it doesn’t dry out the skin.

Dermae New Brand Packaging | Review

2016-10-09-13-09-47

Hi Loves,

Happy Monday to everyone, I hope everyone is safe that encountered  Hurricane Matthew, Virginia did manage to get a hit, but I’m okay, my family’s okay, and Thank God there was not much damage, than a few trees that fell.

Okay, so I’m back with another product review, and I have a lot to share. Recently, Dermae  came out with a ton of brand new products and has brand new packaging. If you don’t know about Dermae, it is a healthy skin care line that has a cruelty free formula and also vegan, which allows the skin to gain nutrients, and aid the skin into health. I was able to try the Dermae Hydrating day ( old packaging) + night cream (new packaging). So, I used both products after my day and nighttime regimen, and can see a difference. I have used it for a full month, so I can base my opinion off of that. Both creams, have the same texture and feeling on my face, the creams are not at all heavy, or sticky like some night creams ( It doesn’t feel like a mask when I go to bed. ) It takes at least 2 weeks to start noticing a difference, my skin did not break out as easily, in all areas of my face, it was hydrated, and now that the weather is changing my skin is known to get dry, especially during the cold season ( I live in Virginia, so our weather is Bipolar. LOL).

Packaging

I do love the new packaging compared to the original, It just has a certain je n’est ce quoi (doesn’t that mean I don’t know) the new packaging ( the Hydrating Night Time cream) is simple, but much more expensive looking, It looks like it could be sold at Sephora, or Nordstrom, and very affordable, which is appealing for consumers and Dermaes’ company. The older packaging looked very normal sort of Basic, and we don’t go for basic.

2016-10-09-13-12-44

Overall I love the Day + Night Hydrating Cream, the packaging of course, I like the Brand new packaging, which is more modern, and sleek. I think both products work really well, and recommend it, to anyone who hasn’t tried the brand DERMAE.

New Products

REVIEW: Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

2016-09-03-17-09-18[1]

The Product was sent to be reviewed, by Valentia x Brandbacker , all opinions are my own.

Hi Lovelies,

Today I’ll be giving my full, honest review on the Valentia Pure Glow Moisturizer, which was fun to finally get to try. For the past week I have been trying the moisturizing cream and trust me there is nothing but PRAISE for this product.

2016-09-03-17-11-23[1]

The Valentia Pure Glow moisturizer is an absorbent cream that is meant to provide all day hydration, also provides more repairs for the skin. The moisturizer protects the skin and is formulated with all natural ingredients.

I have tried Valentia products in the past, and have been pleased before, but as time goes by you kind of grow bored of using the same skin care products and need newer things ( you know what I mean). Using the new Valentia Pure glow has really been effective for the past week, supporting the skin by:

  • Lightening Dark spots
  • Restoring Skin radiance
  • Evening skintone
  • Diminish Fine Lines
  • Provide all day hydration

It is free of toxins and paraben(free) which is the natural process of repairing the skin without damaging or adding additional toxins into the skin. I loved using the moisturizing cream, the consistency on the skin felt very nice, it wasn’t at all thick; or to oily for my skin. Providing all day moisture to my skin made it easy to go through the day without wearing off.

Using this product for the week gave me a plump skin, and skin elasticity, which is a great look for the summer. The organic skin product has to be on the list of favorites for my summer skincare. Now, are my dark marks gone, of course not…its only been a week, but with time I think that they will lightened .

Overall the product was great, do I recommend this?? YAASSS, This is a really great product that takes time, but the longer you use it, the more you will see results.

If you want to purchase this product (here are the links below) The Price is $56 USD.
