Holy grail moisturizer from PC
If there is one product you need to try from Paula’s Choice it is the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer ! Everything about this product from the texture, how amazing it is for a damaged skin barrier, how long it lasts and works alongside other products. My two friends recommended trying it, I started while I was getting a series of chemical peels and it helped my skin in the peeling process so much. This is definitely a top 5 moisturizer of mine, worth getting from Paula’s Choice if it’s on sale! #paulaschoice
PAULA'S CHOICE-Omega+ Complex Moisturizer
You NEED this!
Do you have acne prone skin? Does your skin sometimes get sensitive? Used the wrong product? Do you suffer from cystic acne? If you have skin - you NEED this! Two of my friends are esthetician’s and swear by zinc, cica and copper! At first I was like eh zinc is white I don’t want to look wild .. BUT they were on to something! This has saved... yes you read that right - saved my skin! My cystic acne was flaring up, nothing really was working when it came to moisturizers and I tried this... *chefs kiss* I’ve been using this for the last 3-4 months and will never not be buying this moisturizer.. it helps with my eczema, irritated patches, acne/cysts... Got my URIAGE - Bariéderm Cica-Cream with Copper-Zinc at shoppers drug mart!

The Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications are super hyped and there is a reason for it... These pads are amazing for weekly exfoliation, my complexion is always brighter, my skin is smoother and feels amazing afterwards and of course the travel size is budget friendly 😌 I think for beginners this is a product worth trying out if you are getting into acids and aren’t exactly sure where to start! Or looking to get into chemical peels from a professional but not sure what to expect this is a good build up. I’d recommend these to a friend and recently Sephora had them as a 100 point perk 👀 5/5 review

Are lash serums worth it? Worth the hype??
I’ve been using a lash serum for the last 3-4 months and I’ve finally decided.. are they worth the hype? These photos are my ONE month progress, I’ve seen such a huge difference with the length, shininess and thickness which is absolutely amazing. This is a product that you can purchase at medical spas or from the Ten Spot/Spas! Going to keep using this for another 3 months to compare from when I started to then, I have been told you need to continue use of the serum to maintain the results! Have you tried any lash serums? I know maybelline has launched their own 😊 #lashserum #lashgrowth #longlashes

How to TREAT hyperpigmentation ✨
When trying to treat pretty much any skincare concern like acne and hyperpigmentation, your first line of defense is sun protection! Sunscreen is imperative and as a licensed skincare professional I will NOT preform certain treatments unless I know you’re adamant about the adequate amount and reapplication. Popularized by Tiara Willis, or MAKEUPFORWOC , wearing at least 2 fingers worth of sunscreen on your face neck and ears is 🔑 to keeping your skin nice and healthy. Even applying a little bit extra on the areas you’re more prone can help make a difference align side chemical exfoliation and pigment inhibitors! My go to currently during this dry winter season is Black Girl Sunscreen! It’s emollient rich, with key ingredients being 🌰 Shea Butter, 🥑 Avocado Oil,🥕 Carrot Oil, 🍫 Cacao Extract , and 🌻 Sunflower Oil. So it’s great for those dealing with dry skin but also for those trying to simplify their skincare routine and work on consistency! My only con is this product may not be acne friendly or oily skin friendly but Black Girl Sunscreen recently came out with a Matte version that sounds like the perfect ❤️BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30

This was made for dry curls ➰
Hey curlfriends👋🏾 just stopping by to give you the deets on Mielle’s new moisture rx collection (products are listed in order of use): Hair Type: 3c/4a gurl ➰ MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing & Anti-Breakage Shampoo Let’s start with this bad boy. Now I’ve used mielle’s co-wash in the past so I expected nothing but greatness from this product. In terms of functionality the pump was a struggle at first, I definitely had to put some arm strength into this one. It did take awhile to lather up, but once enough shampoo was applied I was all suddzy🧼 My hair did feel more moisturized after a single wash, shoutout to the avocado and ginger infused in this shampoo🥑 MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing & Anti-Breakage Conditioner When it came to moisture, this product wasn’t playing. Immediately after washing my hair with the anti-breakage shampoo I sectioned my hair and then combed this conditioner through each strand. When it comes to my curls, I am HEAVY with the conditioner. Once applied, I wrapped each section into two Bantu knots and then let it sit for about 15 minutes. Upon rinsing my hair, my hair felt very hydrated, I was quite pleased. (Don’t get me wrong, I definitely still needed more product in my hair to keep it from frizzing up🦚) It’s finally twisting time🧬 After I wash + deep condition, I then applied these 3 products to my two strand twists: MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Hair Butter MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Styling Gel These three products combined had my twists SOAKED with maximum hydration. My favorite out of the three was definitely the hair butter. The hair butter was the key to unlocking the next level of protective styles🗝 My hair was voluminous, defined, AND hydrated. What more could a curly girl ask for? I’ve used these products on 3 of my twist outs so far and they still haven’t failed me. I definitely recommend these products to anyone looking to add some moisture to their collection💧 Lastly, I went in with MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Scalp Treatment A little background on my skin type, I have very dry skin & when neglected I can get dry scalp as well. Once I finished my twists, I went through each part and spritzed this product onto my scalp. The texture was a bit oily, but soothing nonetheless! I would also like to shine light on the founder ⭐️ Monique Rodriguez⭐️ for being another pioneer to bring curly hair products to the forefront of beauty. I can’t say it enough, but support👏🏾Black👏🏾owned👏🏾beauty👏🏾brands.
