Spring in a Jar 🌸
I think I found my moisturizer for the spring & summer - Mamonde gifted me their new Floral Hydro Cream that is exclusive to their site & online at Ulta Beauty 💦 This super lightweight, gel-like formula contains Water Cycle formulation, which is a three step process allowing the hydration in this cream absorb quickly, deliver intense moisture and lock into the skin for that long lasting effect. The star ingredient in the formula is Narcissus which gives the moisture-locking properties. This is a quality I look for in all of my moisturizers - long lasting moisture, and this delivers! This product is vegan friendly, as well as free of mineral oils, dyes and triethanolamine. This retails on the market for $32 and contains 1.69oz of product, which I feel like is a standard price point & product weight for an above drugstore brand. I couldn’t give this product a full five stars for the simple reason that it does have a scent / fragrance - & yes, you guessed right - it smells like flowers. I am not big into fragrance in my skincare as it is known to actually dry out the skin. It’s not an absolute deal breaker for me, but this one was a little more noticeable than your typical scented moisturizer, but not completely intolerable.
Mamonde-Floral Hydro Cream
This mamonde Floral Hydro Cream seemed perfect, y’all! 👏🏾 The cream is lightweight and has a subtle floral scent. The narcissus extract provides deep hydration for the skin. I can attest that a little of this cream goes a long way! 😊 Personally, I prefer to use this at night as the last step in my routine. It can also be used as a sleeping pack as well for more intense hydration. 🙌🏾

Yeouth Skincare Day/Night Cream
The YEOUTH - Youth Day/Night Cream is made with hyaluronic acid, snail extract, tripeptides and green tea. Hyaluronic acid is one of my FAVOURITE ingredients because it can hold 1000 times it’s weight in water, retaining your skin’s moisture, collagen, flexibility and elasticity - all the keys to youthful looking skin 😍 I found this cream to be super hydrating! It left my skin feeling soft and plump. I have been wearing a lot more makeup lately and I found that my makeup looked and felt smoother because of how hydrated and dewy my skin has been since using this! I have been using it for over three months now and have been really happy with the results. Especially over the last little while where the weather has gotten colder and my skin has needed a little something extra to keep it soft, this has really come in handy and has been a go-to in my routine! 🙌🏻 This was my first time trying a product with snail extract and so I was really intrigued to see how it would be. I know snail extract is really popular in K-Beauty and a lot of people swear by it. After how hydrating this moisturizer was, I would definitely be open to trying more products with snail extract. 🐌

She’s a trueee frienddd
I’m going to be frank with you- I adore this moisturizer. This has been my go-to moisturizer for the past six months, I’m more than halfway through it! The product goes on super light, the cream is surprisingly airy seeing that it has SPF in it. Typical moisturizers with SPF can usually be thick, but this one is not and gives the skin a slight dewy sheen. I love adding a hydrating serum underneath in the morning before my makeup to start with a dewy, healthy glow. Price wise, I don’t find that $38 is too pricey for a moisturizer sold in Sephora. If you’re interested in a solid moisturizer with SPF, I definitely recommend you give this one a try. I’ll be repurchasing!
Supergoop!-Superscreen Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 PA+++
This moisturizer is super hydrating and the calendula smell makes for a great aromatherapy session. It is super moisturizing and smells so fresh and fantastic! The consistency is truly water based and glides on the skin easily. Kiehls definitely knocked it out of the park with this formula. She is fierce and full of skin lovin!

Holy Grail Beauty Co is a British brand that is cruelty-free, affordable and products made up of 70% organic bases. And how slick is that packaging? I have to admit it is the first thing that caught my eye, you all know I am a sucker for air tight pump type products with minimalist packaging 🤩The formulations themselves are even more so impressive. Retinol Repair Skin Creme RRP:£23.99 ~ Contains 1% retinyl palmitate, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, green tea extract, and aloe vera leaf juice. This is a rich night cream that smells and feels lovely on the skin, absorbs beautifully, and doesn’t leave residue. Retinyl palmitate is a super gentle form of retinol so I used it with and without a 1% retinol and I didn’t have any irritation or dryness. Another point to note my skin is very dry and I did not need to add an oil to this, it was just right. Comfort is the word that comes to mind!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
