Shea Moisture: My newest obsession

Y’all know how much I LOVE natural skincare products. While I like to review a little bit of everything, the products that my skin is most in love with are the ones with the least amount of synthetic¬†ingredients. And even though a product may SAY it’s “natural” or “organic”, most of them are not. Except Shea Moisture.

And here’s why…

Green Tea for me. Thanks St. Ives!

Okay, be honest…who else grew used St. Ives Apricot Scrub back in the day? I know I did! It was a stable in my college dorm rooms. St. Ives is back with another scrub, this time using Green Tea. And just as good as that is the Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser.

Both are¬† geared towards treating acne and retail for under $6. I’m not even kidding.

POLL: Can AMBI’s mark minimizer reduce my dark spot?

Yes, I said it. I have dark spots. Do I really need to remind you about the most recent one?

Yeah. Hmm mmm…it’s a dark spot in the middle…of my forehead. But AMBI’s Even and Clear Targeted Mark Minimizer (say that 3x fast) looks promising.

After all, it SAYS that it’ll reduce dark marks and¬†discolorations. According to the website, I’ll see results in as little as 2 weeks. Alrighty then, AMBI. We shall see. It retails for under $13 and I’ve got high hopes.

Places your bets, lovelies. Will AMBI help to fade my dark spot a bit? Or will it be just as dark in 2 weeks?

Pretty perfumed pits – Thanks Lady Speed Stick!

It’s Springtime, lovelies! And that means I’ve been spending a lot more time outside. I love that I am able to get home after work and get a good run in outside before the sun runs away from me. And no antiperspirant works harder for me than Lady Speed Stick.

The newest scent, Enchanted Cherry Blossom may be a little too fragrant for me at first swipe, but it became faint throughout the day. Buuuut, it didn’t stop working nor did it irritate my sensitive armpits.

Whaaaat? I can’t be the only one with sensitive armpits. Go ahead and laugh it up. All I care about is fresh smellin’ pits. 8) In the market for a new deodorant? I’d recommend this one!

 

Aveeno’s Continuous Protection sunblock. SPF 85?

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lotion with so much coverage yo. This coming from someone who lives in a state where sunscreens and lotions are all over the shelves. I went to New Smyrna Beach this weekend (I later found out it was the shark bite capital of the world. Eeek!) and forgot to pack my sunscreen. Don’t give me that look. You do know brown people have SHOULD swear sunscreen and blocks, right? In fact, everyone with skin should be wearing it. I ran to a Walgreens and picked up whatever looked decent.

Did it do the trick?
