These Products by B.O. Essentials Kept My Skin Together While Traveling!

I try to keep my skincare routine pretty tight and don’t like to experiment with too many products at once, yet, whenever I’m traveling I can’t help but over pack. All of a sudden I’m pulling out eye creams and serums I haven’t used in who knows how long “just incase.” This time around when going to Tulum I decided to reel it in and only bring necessities (sunscreen, cleanser, facial moisturizer, body moisturizer) and among those were products by Blessed Organic…

Clear Dark Marks + Brighten Skin Using the YLLO Beauty Turmeric Face Scrub!

I’ll be headed to Tulum next week with my boyfriend and I am so excited. He and I haven’t been on a long solo vacation since last summer, so this is much overdue. In preparation for my trip, I’m trying to get my skin in tip top shape — the weather out there is no joke and I doubt I’ll be wearing much makeup. Several weeks ago I came across a new brand, YLLO Beauty, at first it was their eye-catching photos and…

Red Earth Beauty, Red Earth

I really do love the direction that the beauty industry has taken in recent years to make products, especially skincare, more approachable.

Recently, I received a sampling of products from quirky Australian makeup and skincare brand, Red Earth. They believe that being your most beautiful self should be fun –not a chore, and…

The Splurge Worthy Overnight Mask by LXMI That Saved My Winter Skin

LXMI

My skin has been going cray-zee lately and I’m not freakin’ kidding. I’ve written numerous times about the fact that I have very, very oily skin, which is still the case but lately it has been looking super parched. I chalk it up to stress at work because your girl has been guzzling water constantly, maintaining a strict nightly skincare routine and minding my business. Yet, there was still something missing. I’ve been trying a number of oils and serums to combat…

This is How I Detox My Skin After the Holidays: The Kaike Green Tea Mask + Scrub

I brought my boyfriend home for the first time this holiday season, and to say it was a big deal for me is an understatement. There’s nothing better than having someone who is so special to you, meet the people who helped you become, well, you! With that said, we were out and about — he had to meet everyone and I just had to live up this moment of having a majority of my loved ones in one place. Not…

Grow Strong Healthy Hair Faster, While Also Giving Back to Jamaica Using Rooted Treasure!

Sunday evenings for me are all about self-care these days. My ideal Sunday Funday is spent reviving my hair and skin from the past week’s wear and tear, so I can not only kill it on Monday, but look refreshed while doing so. This weekend I decided to document my current Sunday hair routine, with particular emphasis on a product that has played such a big part in how healthy and vibrant my newly natural hair is, Jamaican Black Castor…

My 5-Minute Skincare Routine

As a lover of makeup, I take skincare very very seriously. Without fabulous skin underneath your makeup it never looks as good. I totally get that simply using a makeup remover wipe and then going on your merry way may be much easier, but it’s so important to put in just a few extra minutes each morning and night to truly achieve flawless skin. It doesn’t have to be long at all, I can honestly say that I’ve developed a…

KAIKE, KAIKE, KAIKE: The Black-Owned Vegan Skincare Brand I’m Loving Right Now

I absolutely love trying new skincare brands, especially those that are all natural .. moreover, those that are Black owned.

One of the brands that stood out to me most was Kaike, given it’s chic and highly curated fun aesthetic. I was recently able to try their products and am…

Smooth Legs All Summer Thanks to eos + VITA LIBERATA

Okay I’ll admit it, I literally have not purchased shaving cream in years. Yes, years. Why? Because cheap, and because lazy. I will literally use whatever conditioner, shampoo or soap I have in the bathroom at the time as a substitute when shaving. And although these products get the job done they definitely aren’t getting the job done right, in a way that will actually benefit my skin. For that reason I decided its time I get my act together…
