$$$ Skin Moisturizer? Rico Beauty Essentials

Hello Lovelies,

I’m sure we can all agree that when it comes to skincare, we are willing to go above and beyond to get that perfect, glowing; Instagram-able skin. I recently got to try a skin moisturizer for Rico Beauty Essentials, and I have to admit I was super intrigued by the skin benefits it had to offer. No doubt I have tried plenty of moisturizers ranging from luxury to drugstore, and I can say while some did work for me, there were more that didn’t. Rico beauty essentials is not your typical overly hyped product, but the big question, does it work?

Rico beauty essentials can be found Amazon, which made me a little apprehensive to try, so I had to do some research before testing the product, but if it’s one thing I learned the best products are of Indie brands. Before we get into the review, here’s a little info on the product. The Rico beauty essentials retinol moisturizer, is designed to stimulate production of new skin cells, it helps fade dark marks caused by hyperpigmentation. This retinol moisturizer contains Hyaluronic acid, organic Aloe Vera, Green tea, Vitamin E, and Jojoba oil. As for the price, it’s under $20, so this is definitely a deal $$$.

RETINOL MOISTURIZER

After my routine facial cleansing, I use this moisturizer day and night for about a month, and I can say the effect of the green tea is a plus. While the moisturizer has a list of organic ingredients, the green tea and hyaluronic acid, is felt the most. I say these to particular ingredients, because through this entire process, my skin feels plumper, and the hyperpigmentation of my scars is fading. This cream is light texture and absorbs into the skin, rather than sit on the dermis. Immediately you feel the botanicals working within the skin cells, when applied to the skin, and no there is no greasiness when applying the cream. The cream comes in a 1.7 fl.oz container, so you get a good amount of product, a little goes a long way. My skin after a month of using this feels brighter, my scars have faded and also just an overall healthier feeling.

This moisturizer is completely worth the $$. The difference in my skin has completely benefited from this cream, and I see a total difference in texture. Is it worth the money? I would say $20 can seem like a lot to some people, I will say this, it does work, so If you were to buy It you’ll be getting your money’s worth.

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.

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.
