Loves,

How much does your skincare change? With the difficulties of the weather, & seasons, I constantly change my routine, but its definitely time to say “Boy Bye” to the routine changes and find something more long lasting.

I have tried the Neutrogena hydogel mask, Brightening hydrogel mask, and the capsule sleeping mask, and here are my thoughts.

HYDROGEL MASK

hydroboost3

Neutrogena has developed a hydro-GEL mask, unlike no other, ridding dry skin, and enhancing the dull appearance of skin. This hydrogel masks nourishes the skin with seaweed extract, and water in the form of flexible gel. This gel mask is translucent, and unlike sheet masks that dry down, the gel masks are infused with nutrients that keep its moisture and doesn’t dry out. I have combination skin, so I have the result of both dry & oily skin. Using this mask, help to extract dirt and oil, but keep my moisture and natural oils in my skin, which does not give a total drying effect to the skin. What I love about the mask, is after using it for 15-20 min, you can refrigerate the mask, restoring a cooling effect that helps plump the skin, and helps with redness, the left over residue from the mask, can be rubbed into the skin as a moisturizer, leaving the skin soft & supple.

Radiance Boost brightening maskhydroboost2

The radiance boost brightening mask, contains Vitamin B-3, which boost the skins texture, and radiance. Skin that is dull & contains scarring; and redness, this is the mask for you. The skin mask fights against acne, while cooling the skin of redness, and dry; dull skin. The mask is only $2.99

Neutrogena capsule sleeping mask

This travel size sleeping mask, may be small; but packs a big punch. The sleeping mask, is a concentrated gel mask, infused with hyaluronic acids, meant to target all skin problems; dryness, acne, aging, etc. I got about 4 good uses out of it, putting a little on, after cleansing my face, felt very moisturizing and gave me supple; hydrated skin in the morning.

After reviewing all the mask received, I can say that they are all successful masks. The hydragel masks, contains 50% more moisture than the sheet mask, and you get more uses out of them, the infusion of enzymes, and vitamins boosts the skin appearance in minutes.

Hi Lovelies,

Hair? A topic that is more or less stressful for the average male or female. We have the daily struggles of color changes, whether we want straight or curls, and the obvious tug  war with should I cut it and start over. 

Weaves, braids, wigs, are put on this planet to make life easier. With the constant hassles of damaging hair, weaves are a safe way to change your hair as well as, protecting it from heat, and other negative hair factors. 

besthairbuy, a site that gives you options of virgin, synthetic, and wigs to change your look whenever you get that itch. Now I know the questions that comes next, With so many options, which do I choose for the best results? 

Virgin hair is the best hair to choose from if you want a natural look, what is it about Virgin hair that makes it the top of hair choices? Virgin hair comes in a variety of  Malaysian, Indian, Peruvian, and Brazilian. When it comes to virgin hair, it has natural fibers in that makes it look more natural, and act as natural hair texture, it also last longer when taken care of. Also the price of natural hair is more on the pricey side, rather than synthetic hair. The differences are more apparent with the use of water, and how it dries, as for the variety, each type of virgin hair reacts differently, lets start with Malaysian. Virgin Malaysian hair, is the softest of hair types, also the appearance is shiny, and gives a more natural looking finish. 

maly-st_3bun_01

Indian hair, has a very thick; appearance nor is it as shiny as the Malaysian hair. Indian hair has a range of wavy hair. Indian hair is one of the most natural looking when it comes to the affect it has when wet.

vir7a-indi-body-02(1)

Peruvian Hair, a little coarser and thicker in texture than Indian or Brazilian hair. It blends well with normal African-American relaxed hair textures and medium Caucasian hair textures. The curly texture becomes more curly when wet or washed.

Lastly, Brazilian Hair is silkier and shinier in texture than Indian Hair. The Straight textures are not bone straight but tends to curly beautifully at the end. This hair holds curls very well and tends to hold curls longer than the Indian Hair.

Virgin Hair can be pressed, curled, and colored, all without harming the follicles of your underlying natural hair. With virgin hair it will blend in and look more natural when added in as a sew in weave or a full lace front wig. When it comes to Virgin hair, Beyonce, Zendaya, and Yara are all queens who swear by weaves and wigs.

My First Wig | Wig Review

Hi Lovelies!!

From Lil Kim to every Drag Queen in Herstory, wigs are a reoccurring theme of popculture. For a while now, I have gone doing my makeup looks with my natural hair, just because, I was more comfortable, but then I got to thinking, In order for things to stand out, I need to get out of my comfort zone. So what is it about Wigs that’s so intriguing?

look3

I had the wonderful opportunity of trying my first wig, and it felt amazing, when I tried on the wig, It was like my truest self had awaken. This lovely wig from Wigfactorydirect, and Rene, who is the owner of this amazing company, handmakes the products on the website. The wig I’m wearing is a Synthetic lace front, in this Salmon Pink color. I absolutely adore this wig, Its a really nice shade of pink, nothing crazy, I also like the length, Now I was prepared to shop it half that length, but then I thought, What would Beyonce do? 

For a synthetic wig, it almost felt like a blend, it was naturally sot, and didn’t shed like a dog. The only thing is be prepared to have a ton of neck strength, because of the bundles, it can be a little heavy at times. This wig is $50 which for the quality, is not bad at all.

My first experience wearing a wig was so much fun, and totally amps up my look, Don’t you think? But, the biggest question, is am I going to start wearing wigs regularly? HELL YEAH!! I would love to try more shades, more styles, all for the thrill.

#Makeyourself Beauty Review

The Following Products are provided by Brandbacker for Review, all opinions are my own.ENJOY!

HI Lovelies,

So recently I was excepted to try the Make Beauty Samples which I recieved an eyeshadow in the shade (Alabaster) and the Lipstick shade ( Taffy).

2016-04-15-14-26-33

First Impressions:

The Samples are very cute. I mean come on the packaging is compelling on its own. I think that Bold Words, can catch my attention in any given moment. As for the Make products itself, lets start with the eyeshadow, the color Alabaster is very pigmented, it looks great as a neutral tone. I find that this is not a particular color to use daily, but it serves as a great base shadow. The Lipstick is a very pigmented shade as well. The shade Taffy, looks like almost a peach tone. Its very nice, and the shade is not far away from my natural lipcolor, so it was sort of a playful nude.

Make Eyeshadow – Alabaster

Pros:

Highly Pigmented

Great Coverage

Beautiful Color

Cons:

Although greatly pigmented, the color shows up lighter on the eyes than when I swatched it.

Make Lipstick- Taffy

Pros: 

Highly pigmented

Layers nicely

Cons:

None, this color is Aahhhh-mazing!!
