81FEnsbiNrL._SL1500_-1-1

Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask

 This Argan Oil Hair Mask was designed to condition, hydrate and moisturize dry, damaged hair! It gave me a super soft and silky texture to my curls. This hair mask revived my hair and gave it a much more gorgeous shine. I love that it also protects and shields my hair from any heat damage. Heat damage is a huge concern for me because I have pretty dry hair already. The mask wasn’t difficult to use at all either. I just applied a nice amount to my hair after washing it, left it on for about seven minutes, then rinsed it out. My result was softer, silkier hair that was much easier to comb. It also smells absolutely amazing! It has a musky scent which I adore.

Arvazallia Ultra Curl Defining Cream with Argan Oil

Arvazallia Ultra Curl Defining Cream with Argan Oil was designed to give you soft, bouncy, frizz-free curls! This curl defining cream promises to penetrate and condition hair to restore definition and activate your curls. I found that promise to be very accurate! It was really easy to use. I applied it to my damp, just washed hair, and let it dry on its own. You can also use a diffuser to maximize your curl definition, but since I already have pretty intense curls I decided to let it dry naturally. I am really pleased with the results! My curls are soft and natural looking with no frizz, and extra bounce! My hair also smells fantastic!

I am really pleased with Arvazallia’s Professional Hair Series Product Line! Both products that I tried delivered great results. I also used them on wavy hair and they still provided nice definition, softer hair, and no crunchy hold! I definitely recommend trying this line!

Glue by RUSK Review!

20141126_043407

RUSK Glue was designed to create gravity-defying styles that stay in place until you wash it out! It claims to be flake-free, and easy to wash off your hands and hair. I like that it’s a styling cream rather than a gel. I tend to always prefer creams, as gels have a tendency to flake more often than not. It has a very thick consistency that is really sticky on my hands, but not once applied to my hair. It was super easy to wash off, and has a really nice scent! The hold is also phenomenal. It leaves a very nice, natural looking shine to my hair, and doesn’t flake at all!

InstaNatural Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer Review + 2 Other Products!

logo (2)

I recently had the opportunity to try InstaNatural’s Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer! I was only expecting to receive the Niacinamide Moisturizer, but they sent me their Argan Oil Hair Mask and their Argan Oil Hair Treatment & Elixir too! Yay! I have loved every InstaNatural product I have tried, so I was sure these would be a hit as well!

Here’s a little information about InstaNatural, direct from the source:

InstaNatural Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer

This Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer from InstaNatural was designed to hydrate and plump your skin! With key ingredients like Niacinamide, Vitamin C, Matrixyl 3000, and Rosehip Oil, you can’t really go wrong. This moisturizer provides the ultimate amount of hydration to your skin. My face was so moisturized, in fact, that I opted to use only a teeny tiny amount the next time around. Niacinamide helps reduce redness and inflammation, and diminish the appearance of scars, acne and hyper-pigmentation. The Vitamin C helps to promote healthy skin by reducing any sun damage.

It was easy to use once I figured out the right amount to apply. At first, I was using way too much and my face was really shiny and greasy. Once I tried a teeny pea-sized amount, I fell completely in love with it! I would suggest that you use it primarily at nighttime, because I can’t see it working well under makeup. As a cream, it is fantastic! I wake up with soft and supple skin that glows!

InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Treatment & Elixir

This Argan Oil Hair Treatment & Elixir was designed to condition and restore your hair! It has great key ingredients like Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil and Shea Butter. I, personally, LOVE Argan Oil products so I was really excited to try this one! InstaNatural’s Argan Oil Hair Treatment revitalizes weak, limp and lifeless hair, quenches dryness, tames frizziness, and infuses instant long-lasting luminous shine!

It was fun to use too. I applied the desired amount to my massive mane and left it on overnight. In the morning, I shampooed as usual, conditioned, and towel dried my hair. Then I used a tiny amount of the elixir to scrunch my curls into perfection. The result was shiny, well-defined locks that I was ready to brag about!

InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask

This deep conditioning treatment was designed to transform dry and damaged hair into soft and shiny health! With ingredients like Argan Oil, Japanese Green Tea, Amino Acid Complex, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil and Vitamin B5, this was bound to be a hit! I definitely wasn’t disappointed either. The key ingredients penetrate deep down to nourish and hydrate your hair, while enhancing its texture and shine. It also helps to strengthen your hair, so it can better defend itself against heat damage!

I really enjoyed using this hair mask! I applied it to my clean, towel dried hair and left it on for 15 minutes. Afterwards, I rinsed it out, and was rewarded with intensely hydrated curls that smelled FANTASTIC! I definitely recommend you try it out for yourself.

I recently had the amazing opportunity to test out some more of InstaNatural’s products! I was only expecting to receive their Stretch Mark & Scar Cream, but they also sent me their 100% Pure & Certified Organic Argan Oil! Woohoo!

InstaNatural Stretch Mark & Scar Cream

This Stretch Mark & Scar Cream helps with both the prevention and reduction of stretch marks and scars! Both men and women will get stretch marks or other scars at some point in their lives. These marks can appear pretty much anywhere that skin tissues are stretched. This cream can diminish the appearance of current stretch marks and scars, strengthen your skin to protect and prevent new ones from forming, and deliver deep nourishment and hydration.

I love how this Stretch Mark & Scar Cream is composed of natural and organic ingredients! The fact that it is packed with powerful vitamins and essential oils was definitely intriguing. The smell of this cream is surprisingly pleasant. This sort of cream usually smells of chemicals, but this one smells fantastic! The Cocoa Butter and Mango Butter really create a lovely scent. I also love how simple it is to use. I applied the cream after showering and drying off. All I had to do was massage it into the necessary areas and it absorbed super easily. It feels great on, and didn’t cause any irritation. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth, while also feeling hydrated. With key ingredients like Vitamin C, Cocoa Butter, Rosehip Oil, Mango Butter, Grapeseed Oil and Evening Primrose Oil, this beats any Stretch Mark & Scar Cream I have tried.

InstaNatural 100% Pure & Certified Organic Argan Oil

This 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil is great for your skin, face, hair and nails! It contains no preservatives, chemicals or artificial fragrances. This Argan Oil naturally freshens, hydrates and softens dry skin, repairs and beautifies hair, and strengthens brittle nails and cuticles. InstaNatural even makes it organically in small batches to ensure its premium quality!

I love how it has so many different moisturizing purposes, and how you can also use this oil for massages, as an acne treatment, toner or conditioner, and as an aftershave. To use this Argan Oil, I applied 2 drops onto my palms and massaged it into any dry areas. I felt an instant warm and soothing sensation. The oil absorbed very quickly and moisturized very well. Another way to use this Argan Oil is to condition your hair. After shampooing, you can apply 1-3 drops and massage it into your scalp and/or hair. You can leave the oil in for at least 30 minutes for ultimate conditioning. You can also use this oil on your face to achieve a glowing complexion. Just apply 1-3 drops onto your face by massaging in circular motions. If you let it absorb for 3-5 minutes first, you can even use it under your makeup!

September Beauty Box 5 Review!

20140915_163427

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription box.. For $12 a month, you will get 5 deluxe or full size beauty items shipped right to your door.. Beauty Box 5 ships through DHL/USPS, so it comes right to your mailbox!

They give a good mix of beauty related products that range from hair care, to skin care, makeup, and polishes!

To learn more about Beauty Box 5, click HERE

First impression? Their box is very tiny! I don’t know how they fit the products in there, but they did. You have been warned.

20140915_163453

Small box addressed, now let’s get to the good stuff and see what was inside! 

20140915_163539

Each Beauty Box 5 comes with an info card that lists each item inside and some useful information about each one, including full size retail values! 

20140915_163651

Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon (FULL SIZED!)

This creamy shadow stick glides on easy and adds a bit of color. You can smudge the color with your finger, or a brush, to get a smokey-eye effect. You can also blend it all the way out to a full-lid base.

Retails for $4.49!

20140915_163923

My Beauty Spot Nail Polish (FULL SIZED!)

These polishes have incredibly bold color! It has a very thick formula that glides on smooth. It dries SUPER fast too!

Retails for $4.16!

20140915_163616

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara (FULL SIZED!)

This mascara doesn’t only deliver volume and definition… Thanks to its lacquered formula, it actually lifts your lashes, leaving an eyelash curler useless! No smudging. No flaking. No worries!

Retails for $7.99!

20140915_163854

Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner and Co-Wash (1 oz.)

 This deep conditioning co-wash is equipped with 8 repairing oils and Shea butter. This treatment strengthens hair to minimize frizz, and contains no sulfates or parabens. It can be used as a co-wash for curly hair, and as a deep conditioner for all hair types.

This 1 oz sample size retails for $1.20..

Sally Hansen Toe Spacers (1 pair)

I found these to be very uncomfortable. They were marketed as cushiony, but I found them to be very stiff.

Retails for $1.99..

20140915_164233

The final retail value of the September Beauty Box 5 comes to $19.83! Considering that the box costs $12 per month, I wouldn’t call it much of a steal. If I were to recommend Beauty Box 5, I would advise you purchase the full year subscription for $99. That would make each box $8.25 per month, which is a MUCH better deal!

LeKair Natural Curls Review!

IMG_24718038790592

I recently had the amazing opportunity to try a new hair care line from The Stephan Company! Their new line “LeKair Natural Curls” is geared towards African-American women, but I also used it on my son and daughter who are quite Caucasian. It worked wonders!

This curl defining cream provides curl definition without the crunch.

This cream really delivers! It took almost no effort at all to style my hair. I just ran the cream through my hair and let it air dry. The result was shocking!

Retails for $6.99!

Okay. Can I just pause here for a second so I can tell you how great this stuff is? I mean, I have curls. Lots of them! I am fully aware of my awesome mass of curls, but I have NEVER had curls like this! I am head-over-heels for this new line from The Stephan Company, and I am not afraid to let it show…

Here, is my after shot!

20141018_215304

Woohoo! I am LOVING my new bouncy, well-defined curls! Huge thanks to The Stephan Company for introducing such a fantastic new naturals curls line.

20141018_215357
