LUSH Bath Bomb: Dragon’s Egg…yummy!

Not that I actually tasted this thing. That would be bad. VERY bad. Watching this bath bomb spin around in the tub reminded me of orange sherbet. My Grandma in Miami and I would eat that ALL the time.

Doesn’t that look cool?

Dragon’s Egg is a citrus-y bath bomb with notes of lemon and bergamot. It smells divine but what it DOES is even better. After spinning and twirling and going from color to color, it oozes beautiful gold glitter everywhere.

It was small enough to where it didn’t irritate my skin but left me in a beautiful tub of orange water. I loved this one. It may be AS good as my Twilight bath bomb.

Have you tried Dragon’s Egg bath bomb yet?

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?

A First Look at black|Up Cosmetics

Haven’t heard of this line, have you? Born in France, black|Up Cosmetics is the FIRST makeup artist brand created for women of color–especially for those with darker complexions. Wow is right! Their Facebook page is full of comments from happy customers and makeup artists. It’s a luxury and higher-end brand. Although I’m a drugstore diva, it’s cool to see a brown girl friendly version of Chanel, Dior and Dolce & Gabanna Cosmetics. I’m just itching to try as many of the products as I can.

First up—a mattifier and powder.

LUSH Fizzbanger bath bomb

Move over Twilight bath bomb! I think I’ve found a new favorite. Fizzbanger. I love every single thing about this bomb. It sat on my dresser for weeks scenting my room before I even tossed it in the tub. LUSH says it goes from smelling like apples to toffee and I couldn’t agree more. It is the most deliciously smelling bath bomb I’ve tried. And it puts on quite a show!

And as you soak in a silky smooth tub of water, what floats on by?

Get it? FizzBANGER? LUSH, you crack me up. Silly rabbits. Check out additional deets about this bath bomb here.

I love the unexpected goodies in the bath bombs. Have you tried this one yet?

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?

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)
