Pure Shea butter 😍
#Alaffia - Unrefined Shea butter[products]#[FiveStars] My experience with it: 👍🏻 I’ve used pure, unrefined Shea butter in the past. It pairs really well with authentic black soap. I used to use African black soap then use Shea butter and argan oil as my moisturizer for almost 2 years. My skin was super healthy but once I moved the black soap was too drying for the desert climate 🏜 and I switched up my products a lot after that I recently wanted to try using Shea butter again because my skin was becoming so dry and looked dull 😞 So what is it and how do you use it?: 🤔 Shea butter is hard to use, it’s gotta be warmed up in the hand because at room temp it is solid and not as malleable as coconut 🥥 oil at room temperature 🌡 also, wait a while after applying because it takes some time to soak into the skin, if you try to apply makeup it won’t go well, or if you go to sleep 💤 after applying then it will transfer onto the pillow. it’s also derived from the fat of a nut 🌰 so if your allergic to nuts then maybe don’t test your luck. its been used in cosmetics for quite some time because it’s got create benefit: it’s got vitamins A,E, and F. Has shown anti aging benefits and intense moisture. Helps with acne and also scarring from acne. Antibacterial, anti inflammatory, etc the list goes on. Needless to say it’s got a lot of benefits!
French lavender body lotion
#Essential oils - French lavender body lotion[products]#[FourStars] PROS not heavy - very light but not quite watery consistency absorbs fast and makes skin soft ✨ smells very strongly of real lavender 🌱 safe & simple ingredient list for people that are conscious of those things ✔️ CONS not a heavy lotion - it won’t help with super dry areas like the hands, feet or elbows. I personally just like using it after getting out the shower because it provides some light moisture very strong lavender scent which may bug some people but it quickly dissipated and doesn’t linger on the skin Would I buy again? 🤔 Yes I probably would but once I’m done with this one I’ll try out another brand just to see what’s out there because I like trying new things.
Clear zinc sunscreen 🌤
#Badger - Clear zinc sunscreen lavender[products]#[FourStars] I got this in replacement of the derma E that did not work out, this stuff is much better kinda annoyed that I grabbed the lavender because i wasn’t paying attention but it doesn’t bug me as much as I thought it would it looks white but after rubbing into the skin it becomes clear - doesn’t take much blending to make it go clear which is good can be a little oily. I was afraid of putting beeswax 🐝on my face too as that is one of the ingredients but it hasn’t broken me out and apparently online it says it’s non-comedogenic 🤷♀️ idk hard to believe but whatever it can actually be used instead of a moisturizer because it already has a moisturizing effect and I don’t wanna double up on the face moisturizer because then I’ll look greasy lol so I’ve just been using this only after I wash my face all in all it’s a nice mineral sunscreen
Glass Shot lip gloss 💎🌟
#Kaja - Glass shot lip gloss[products]#[FourStars] this is has a super nice shine, after it settles it smooths the lips out my lips feel hydrated after using it cute packaging too! I like the applicator because it has a slight curve to it so it hugs the lips nicely when applying and gets the corners of the lips well too it stays on pretty long! I wore if for a couple hours even under a mask and it stayed on
Burts bees tin lip balm
BURT’S BEES - 100% Natural Lip Butter Ignore the fumbling with the tin I’m not left handed lol this tin is super cool looking, it’s got a little lip that you can push down so that the lid pops open. Pretty smart and prevents the struggle of having to open the caps especially when they’re like vacuumed shut lol it claims it’s 100% natural, smells slightly of strawberry 🍓 and a hint of rose 🌹 moisturizes well enough for a lip balm. Makes the lips looks hydrated it’s actually a nice lip balm I’d try the other flavors too
BURT’S BEES-100% Natural Lip Butter
#Derma e - Sun defense mineral sunscreen[products]#[TwoStars] okay this stuff was not it 😭 left a horrible white cast that couldn’t be rubbed in it was super watery and a little went a long way because the sunscreen never actually rubbed in all the way . It left a horrible white cast and as someone with fairer skin, it looked like I had a horrible fitted foundation on that I didn’t rub in all the way. For people with darker skin tones this would definitely not work. I’d not buy again 👎🏻 I actually ended up returning because it was a waste of money and sadly a waste of product & resources
