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?

LUSH Big Blue bath bomb

I think this bath bomb is total winner. LUSH.com says this baby contains lemon, sea salt and lavender. I wasn’t in love with Big Blue at first smell. But when I heard that it would turn my tub a beautiful hue of blue, I snagged it up with the quickness.

How gorgeous is that? I threw in a bubble bar and bath melt (those reviews coming soon) so the water was a little more on the green side. Love love looooove everything about this bath bomb. Except the little surprise in the water.

Yep, that’s REAL seaweed. I’m not a fan of it at the beach so it definitely didn’t make me happy in the tub. But I see where you’re trying to give us the FULL experience, LUSH. And for that…I love you.

Johnson’s for Beauty Challenge

Y’all know me…I am ALWAYS up for a challenge. Especially when it’s beauty related. Johnson’s has challenged me to come up with creative ways of using their body care products. They have provided me with lotions, baby powder and body washes.

The easy thing would be to just apply it on my skin, right? Welllll, because my skin has been insanely sensitive these days, I am going to discover other ways to use these products. And I’ll be updating you along the way.

If you have any suggestions, let a sista know. 8)

Dry Skin Confessions

Oh gee, how do I start this off? I guess I should just come out with it.

I have dry skin. And I’ve always had dry skin. It’s not something I’m proud about either. It’s embarrassing. You can’t exactly go around scratching your lower back with intense frustration in public without people giving you the side-eye. But to my rescue, I present two drugstore (aka affordable) brands that have been coming to my rescue. First up…

Aren’t they sexy?
