Skin Care, Moist Lips, Edges!

 

I wanted to share some of my Favorites with you all, from the Spring….hehe..just a little late. And, with Spring’s theme being Rebirth. I thought I would include some products that have been key in the “Re-birthing” of my skin, lips, and edges!

So, without “further ado” …because some of these products will have you feeling very bougie….*cough…Sir Peter Thomas Roth…cough*

Lets not be coy…

The first to start of our list:

1. Peter Thomas Roth: Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream- 

  • Price: $52.00 
  • Good for: 
    • Dry Skin
    • Sensitive Skin
    • Combination Skin
    • Sensitive Skin
    • Normal Skin

Now, for many of you $52.00 for a facial moisturizer may seem like nothing, for some, for some of you may say “Girl!”. But for me, this was my first ever big girl purchase, stating that I was on the road to being a big girl, with a real skin routine and that meant needing more than just shea butter…which is still holy grail, we will never abandon our shea butter. Anywho, before Sir Peter Thomas Roth. I was using shea butter offcourse, and little gems from the pharmacy, target, etc. So, $52.00 on a price tag, of a facial moisturizer did bring out a little gasp, a little deep breathing as I handed over my debit card to the Sephora cashier. Yes, it was that serious, atleast for me.

But worth it!

I Love you “Peter Thomas Roth: Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. I love you!” 

Actual Product Description

“A concentrated 30 percent hyaluronic acid cream that transforms atmospheric vapor into fresh, pure water, providing your skin with a continuous burst of intense hydration that lasts up to 72 hours. “

My  Product Description:

It’s fucking Clouds in a jar. Fluffy-moisturizing clouds, suctioned into a jar, ready to release hydrating bits  of cloudy goodness on to your skin- to give your skin the appearance of moisturized eternal youth. 

WTF is Hyaluronic Acid and why is it so Awesome??:

“Hyaluronic acid—a potent hydrator that constantly attracts and retains up to 1,000 times its weight in water from moisture in the atmosphere—helps replenish skin to make it appear more supple, full, and smooth.”

Why This Product:

On a serious note. This facial moisturize offers a full hit of moisture and hydration with just the smallest dab…literally guys. A little bit of this product goes a long way.  Like..there have been many incidents of needing to wipe off  excess product, because I wanted play myself and forget-this product is filled with cloudy-fluffy-hydrating goodness. Since using this product, I can honestly say I have seen an improvement in the appearance of my skin, and so have others-seriously! I would recommend this product for anyone who is a “virgin” to the facial moisturizing-not-quite-ready for-high-end product world but ready-to-this-skin-right-world!…Because, I too, am not mentally ready to spend $300.00 on a tiny jar.  

Application/Smell: 

The product is white,  with a cream-gel like texture. Once you apply the product onto your skin, it applies with a smooth gel finish. It also has a clear finish, which is a plus- you don’t feel as if your getting in a quick 5-minute wrist workout, and no ashy faces. I have Oily Combination Skin, with an oily T-zone. The products works perfectly fine with my skin type, as it sates. Fragrance-free.

Second on the “March Faves” list, another skin product, a little skin refresher for you all, skin pumper-upper:

2. Mario Badescu- Facial spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea

  • Price: 4.0 oz $7.00; 8.0 oz $12.00 
  • Also comes in :
    • Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender Scent
    • Aloe, Herb and Rosewater Scent

Because I am very serious about stepping this skin-care routine up a notch, I thought, why not- lets step the bougie-ness up with a little spritz to wake up our pores. This is sooo refreshing, and smell soooo good. I kid you not. Each and every-time I spray the Mario Badescu- Facial spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea spray, a little smile creeps up on my face- from the pure happiness the smell alone brings

.img_1168  It’s that Yummerz ya’ll. I’ve seen this product all over YouTube, mentioned by countless popular Youtube Beauty Vloggers, and made the promise that it would grace my product collections. 

Actual Product Description: 

“An invigorating mist formulated with an infusion of nutrient-rich botanicals and cucumber essential water to revive dull, tired skin. Aloe vera and cucumber – both rich in essential vitamins and minerals – deliver a cooling boost of hydration as green tea provides powerful antioxidant protection. Skin is left feeling refreshed and revitalized.”

My Product Description: 

The Perfect “Wake the fuck up” spray for your face, for the mornings when your face is not giving you that flawless “I woke up like this” face. Drench your face, yes drench your face in the invigorating, calming and soothing scent of Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea. Feel your skin coming back to life with each spritz. With each spritz, feel your skin transforming, no becoming, the true “bad-bitch-with -great skin” you were always meant to be.

Why this Product:

Because, its an essential. Before hand, I use to be a wash, moisturize and leave kind of girl. Now, no. Toners and Refreshers are essential components in keeping a good skin-care routine and  having good skin….scratch that great skin. This is another product that I have found since adding into my skin-care regime, has shown some improvement in the appearance of my skin- I can actually see my skin looking more and more rejuvenated- legit.

Application/Scent:

It comes as a spray applicator, which your spritz on the rejuvenating and revitalizing minerals and vitamins onto your face. Drenching your face with the product. One con, and probably my only con is, application process will leave your face drenched in product. Or, maybe I get so lost in the smell, I get trigger happy with the spray applicator. Either way that con depends on who you’re asking. It helps that the product doesn’t take long to dry on your skin. The scent. I think we all know how I feel about the scent. Its fucking yummerz. 

The Next Toner I think I’ll try:

Clarifying Lotion 3 Clinique’s Clarifying Lotion 3 – For Combination Oily Skin

And our last contender to make our Faves   list this Month…this is for you. “My Frontal wearing” sisters, My “Your mother had your in the braiding shop every Saturday once a month since your were eight years old” sistas, My “you thought your were grown so you wanted to start doing your own hair” sistas, and “idk what happened” sistas.

3. Nature’s Blessings Hair Pomades- An oldie but goodie. 

Why this Product:

Not much to say about this product except…….It is “Captain-save-your–Edges”….

After countless arguments at the braiding salon

Drying wig caps

and just pure careless-ness…My edges said..ENOUGH!

And that is when I found this miracle pomade. Its light scent and not too oily consistency, makes this a staple hair product that every black girl should try. Especially if you love box braids.

 

Hopefully you found these product reviews to be helpful. And, I really hope it encourages you to go out and try some of them. Safe shopping!
