Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer
Why It's SpecialThis product is amazing!!!! I had a period where my skin was really dry and so I decided to try this out, and my skin's texture is better than it's ever been! I initially got a small little sample with my points and I had to come back and get the full size. I usually wouldn't spend this much, but this is worth it. It's nice and lightweight, has a nice smell, and gets the job done. Highly recommend!

🥀fresh Rose Cream w/time-release ‘hydropatches‘
I was using this face cream for about a year & hadn’t noticed any issues until a couple months ago. I may not have been paying close enough attention before, or it became an issue over time... 🚨REDNESS🚨 fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer A lot of things about this cream are great... the texture is a medium weight gel-cream that smells like a lovely bouquet of roses. It absorbs nicely with a slightly dewy finish & truly does offer lasting hydration. My issue is a redness reaction I get immediately after applying. I’ve experimented with different products underneath it & also determined the irritation is not physical (from rubbing in) 💔I took some photos today (this will be my last time using it on my face! Ever! I did this for you guys🥰) As you can see, it didn’t do the same thing to my arm... So definitely something to consider when patch testing products, the skin on your face will possibly behave differently than other areas of skin on your body, like your arm. There are more capillaries on your face & the skin is thinner. So my face gets really red, especially my cheeks & jaw area— Though it does dissipate, my skin obviously isn’t happy, so I stopped using it. When I read some reviews of the product, I found a few individuals with the same issue. One thought it could be a reaction to the rose oil. I thought I’d had a good track record with rose oils, but I’ve heard that some can find it irritating. 🌹*in the photos, my “before” is about 30 minutes after washing my face, toning, serum & eye cream. The “after” photo is immediately after applying the fresh Rose Cream. This contains both extract & oil of the Damask Rose, as well as Plum seed oil, Cucumber extract & Ashitaba: a species of flowering plant in the carrot family, native to Japan. It also has the smaller molecular form of Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate as well as Vitamin E. 🚨Due to my reaction I think I’ll just finish this off as a body cream, why not? Has anyone else had this reaction? Or know which ingredient may be causing it? (I don’t usually have any reactions to products with fragrance ftr)

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Cream
Loving the newest addition to my stash! The fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer Finally decided to grab this beauty. I tried a sample couple weeks back and loved the way it made my skin look and feel, and could not stop thinking about it. It was just so convenient that I was in need of a new moisturizer too ☺️ • First of all, the texture of moisturizer is gel-cream. It looks like a cream, but feels and applies like a gel and blends out into a burst of water, absorbing into the skin so beautifully! Just give it a couple minutes after applying, and you won’t even see it bc it’s so lightweight, no greasiness or tackiness left behind, all you’ll see is the glow! From the video you can see a little goes a long way and this is the full size jar that I have, so for it’s price I think it’s a great value that will last me quite a while! That’s one thing I love about gel creams, I’ve noticed that bc of their texture just a dab is more than enough to cover the entire face. This was also a deciding factor for me in purchasing this and precisely why I love it! • This goodness is definitely a moisture magnet! The ingredients in this work wonderfully to address dryness, dullness and uneven texture. It contains rose water, vitamin E, angelica leaf extract, rose flower oil, hyaluronic acid and hydropatches which create a veil to attract and retain moisture in the skin. So if you’re looking for a deeply hydrating moisturizer that’s lightweight and will actually leave your skin soft and moistureized even after being washed off, then I highly recommend this for you! Definitely a 5/5 ⭐️ product!

What does it do? Rose
Rosewater, rosehip oil, rose essential oil, and the list goes on ... Roses have been an essential beauty product for centuries From perfume to oils to face creams to medicine, it has been in something. So for this “What does it do?,” I decided to breakdown the properties of roses in skin care. I mean roses may smell nice, but what can adding it to your routine do for you? Let’s talk about it ... What does it do for the skin? Roses are full of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. They also have antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory benefits. Antioxidants help your skin fight against free radicals, which can reduce the strength of your skin. Basically, look younger for longer. (Is there a way to get an IV of this stuff? 😂) Rose byproducts tens to be used by people of all skin types: dry, combination, normal, oily, sensitive and mature. Smelling like roses: Rosehips are packed full of high levels of vitamin C, which is why the oil has recently been suggested to help with hyperpigmentation. Vitamin A also may treat the appearance of lines and wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. The oil from roses also moisturizes your skin and protects your skin from moisture loss. It also keeps free radicals and toxins out. Actual rosewater hydrates your skin, provides antibacterial help while it regulates your skin’s pH. Talk about a multitasker! Your roses really smell like: Because of the growing numbers of people with a smell sensitivity, I am sure there are people who have experienced a negative reaction. Now let’s talk about the two products I decided to highlight: 🌹 fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner is a daily toner that should hydrate and balance your skin. It comes in two sizes. (Previous review on Dec. 9.) MY THOUGHTS: I opened this toner a few months ago and I still really like it. The rose smell isn’t in your face like other rose toners. (I mean it is a toner, not perfume.) The petals in the toner are a nice touch, but when you start to get to the bottom of the bottle, it can distort the color more and look ... not the best. Recommend? Yes! 🥀 fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizeris a lightweight gel that is infused with “advanced hyaluronic acid and time-release hydro-patches” to give you 24-hour hydration. Fresh says hydro-patches “form a protective moisturizing veil to help attract and retain moisture.” (Can I apply hydro-patches to my dating life?) It comes in three sizes ranging from $15 to $68. MY THOUGHTS: I like the consistency of this cream. I was keeping this face cream in the fridge, but it was harder to immolate. It can also pill when it is layered over something it doesn’t agree with. Recommend? If you have the money to spend, then yes. Fun rose trivia: • There are 150 species of roses. • It is the only vegetable oil that naturally contains retinol. Note: I got both in a Sephora set.

Empties September- December 2020
These are some of my empties from the last few months. Here’s my quick review of them and whether I plan to repurchase: Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer My go-to moisturizer during the summer and got me through til September. I did a longer review of this on my page if you would like to read. Would I repurchase: Yes; and I plan to when it warms up again! FIRST AID BEAUTY - 5 in 1 Eye Cream Also did a review of this. It was hard to say if it did much, and therefore I don’t have much to speak of. Would I repurchase: No; there’s other eye creams on the market I prefer with a similar price, if not cheaper. Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo A cult favorite scalp scrub, and I see what the hype was as it definitely cleaned my scalp as a weekly refresher. I bought the 1oz size for $11 and was able to get about a month and a half worth of use from it (using it once a week). Would I repurchase: Probably not; the full size version is $42 and there are much more affordable scalp scrubs and clarifying products that give you similar results. boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer I bought this to replace my hydroboost moistuizer as the seasons changed. I also did a longer review of this in comparison with Neutrogena as they’re both gel moisturizers. Would I repurchase: No; I wasn’t a fan of the tackiness and it didn’t seem worth the price point. fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer Fresh is one of those brands that is definitely pricey, but it shows in the quality of their products. You’re paying for a more luxurious feeling, and this moisturizer worked really well with both my oily skin, and the cold weather. Would I repurchase: Yes, and I already did! I got the full size version in the holiday set they had with their rose toner (which I also love). Not Pictured: HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner A solid, affordable toner. Check my page to read my full review of it. Would I repurchase: Yes; a great toner to have in my arsenal during the warmer months. Ayele&Co. - Sunflower sweets serum My go-to face oil (it’s called a serum but really it’s a face oil). I’ve been using this for years and it’s become a staple in my nighttime routine. This is compatible with oily, acne prone skin, and I truly think it’s helped my skin’s oil production level out. It helps seal in moisture overnight, and I think it’s given my skin a nice inner glow. Would I repurchase: Yes! Always! I cannot recommend this oil enough, especially if you have oily skin. Here’s to a new year and new beauty finds!

My Thoughts on LUXURY SKINCARE 💸✨ Worth it? p.1
First of all skincare that’s a luxury to me may not be a luxury to you. I honestly think that it’s not the product brand or claims that make it a luxury, but the science, thought and ingredients behind it. We all have our own budgets and limits on how much we’re willing to spend so with everything I say on this subject, take it with a grain of salt! Skin Ceuticals. This is probably my favorite skincare brand- there’s so much research and science behind each product. My favorites include: - SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel a super lightweight, but extremely hydrating and skin-plumping serum full of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 - SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum a potent anti-oxidant serum with Vitamins C & E, Ferulic Acid & L-Ascorbic Acid to help treat hyper-pigmentation and brighten the skin - SKINCEUTICALS - Retinol 0.3 a low percentage retinol for speeding up cell turnover without any irritation or overly drying the skin - SKINCEUTICALS - Physical Fusion Uv Defense SPF 50 a super thin serum formula with high SPF to protect your skin from the sun - no white cast! Drunk Elephant. Their products are expensive and get hyped up A LOT (which sometimes makes me not want to try them?), but I like that their products are usually centered around one main ingredient. I’ve tried: - DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum which is a nice glycolic serum that helps to smooth and exfoliate the skin but I’ve tried other glycolic products like ALPHA-H - Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid which I find more effective! - DRUNK ELEPHANT - D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops just a bronze-colored serum but I don’t find anything too special about it or its ingredients. I fell for the “anti-pollution” claim- never again! Fresh. I love some and don’t love some. I like their whole “natural” approach but I find some of their formulas not effective on my skin at all. - fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence I LOVE this facial treatment. I use it as an essence, as it contains Lactic Acid, to help gently brighten & smooth the skin. - fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This is super moisturizing night cream that really plumps up my skin overnight so I wake up to glowy, bouncy skin! - fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner This is so disappointing compared to their Black Tea Facial Treatment. It does nothing to hydrate- just feels like overpriced rose water. - fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer I think the rose in the formula irritates my skin and turns it a little pink. I’ve just been using it as a body cream so I it doesn’t go to waste! Elemis- check out part 2!

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
