Thrift Shop Finds

I love shopping in thrift stores because they have the best finds within anyones budget!! One thing I hate is going out and seeing someone with your outfit on….shopping in thrift stores allows you to show your individuality!

PRODUCT REVIEW-Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

One of my beloved best friends who is also natural gave me this product to try.  What immediately turned me on about this product was the smell!~!!!!! It SMELLS SOOOO GOOD!!!! It has a tropical scent…not too over-powering. I’m big on smells and some products can easily give me a headache.  The second thing that I loved was the fact that there was :
NO PARABENS
NO PHTHALATES
NO PARAFFIN
NO GLUTEN
PROPYLENE GLYCOL
NO MINERAL OIL
NO SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCE

 

 

This product should be used sparingly!! After washing and conditioning my hair I apply the product and two strand twist my hair. The next morning I took my twists out and loved the results…..MY HAIR WAS HYDRATED, CURLS DEFINED, SHINY….Overall I plan to keep this product in my regimen.

RESULTS………………..

The Oil Cleaning Method

As long as i could remember I had problems with my skin….I would get these random breakouts and they always leave blackouts. In the morning my skin is extra dry and as the day goes on its oily =( Ive tried so many products and no one them help with it comes to clearing blackheads and blemishes. Ive decided to try the Oil Cleaning Method because its natural and not expensive to try.  This method relieves and help to prevent pimples, cysts, zits, blackheads, and whiteheads.  
According to the website http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/ for:

  • Oily Skin: Try a blend of 30% Castor Oil to 70% Sunflower Seed Oil.
  • Balanced Skin: Try a blend of 20% Castor Oil to 80% Sunflower Seed Oil.
  • Dry Skin: Try a blend of 10% Castor Oil to 90% Sunflower Seed Oil.
In my case Ive decided to use avocado oil because avocado oil gives a soothing and softening effect to the skin, it oil contains vitamins A, D and E and provides a soothing effect to skin, but is especially good for dry skin and aging skin,  it is very helpful for dry and itchy skin, It also increases the production of collagen, and prevents aging of the skin, it is good for natural skin care, as it greatly penetrates the skin, and helps to keep the skin well-moisturized….

“This method works because oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. The steam will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed.”


ROUTINE: At night take your mixture and message into your face paying especially to problem areas…..take a warm town and place it on your face until it cools…repeat until you have removed all the oil from your face….follow up with and an astringent and moisturize….
