Shea Moisture’s Organic African Black Soap wash is the bee’s elbows!

Yes, I am still in love with Shea Moisture. Chances are I will try and do a post on every single one of their products. This is a mission that I will gladly accept because I haven’t been this smitten with a skincare line like this in quite a while. Funny thing about their products…they have the longest names ever.

Meanwhile, in 2016….

Am I right? The super long names crack me up. Doesn’t mean I love Shea Moisture any less though.

COVERGIRL Limited Edition Clean Compacts

I was strolling through CVS and came across these beautiful compacts from COVERGIRL.

How gorgeous are those? I was unable to find any compacts for my complexion but I’m sure I can find them at other drugstores. Not only does each purchase provide a week’s worth of clean water for a child in Africa, but the compact is just absolutely stunning.


Have you seen these yet? Think you’ll be purchasing?

Beauty Review: Nuturing Force blotting papers

While at The Makeup Show NYC, I came across Nuturing Force! I have been using these babies now more than ever with summer in full swing.

They come in different colors. I snagged the purple one which is infused with lavender. Hmmm… The smell isn’t too over-powering so you don’t have to worry about it clashing with your perfume or lotion.

I love that you can control how much you pull out!

I can grab a tiny strip for nose or a larger strip for my…larger forehead. HA!! And you never really know how much oil your skin absorbs until you try one of these.


Loves it! Well….not love the oilness that is my face. I just like that it removes the oil from my skin before it seeps in my skin and causes breakouts. Dun dun duuuun! And you know we can’t have that.
