There’s tons of things to love about working in the world of beauty but one of the best perks is all of the free goodies to play with. Hands down! Being a Prestige Manager at Ulta is a lot of hard work but receiving gratis goodie bags always makes it worth it. Especially when I get to try some of the hottest new products on the block!

January was all about glowing skin so I got to try a ton of new skincare goodies but this month is back to the makeup with tons of new releases for spring. There’s a new collection or product (or two or three) popping up every week this month so there’s lots of fun to be had in the Prestige department and you certainly don’t want to miss out!

African Royale Hot Six Oil Review

African Royale Hot Six Oil

When you have thick, curly hair, it’s almost inevitable that you become addicted to oils. Olive oil, castor oil, jojoba oil–there’s so many to choose from. And I’ve tried just about all of them. The only that my hair loves more than water and conditioner is oil. Oils instantly moisturize, add shine and lock in moisture while conditioning hair over time. I live for moisturizing and sealing and adding oils to my deep conditioner so they’re a huge part of my haircare routine.

My holy grail oil is a rich blend created by African Royale called Hot Six Oil. It earns the name from its versatility as its suitable for the hair, body and skin and can even be used as a hot oil treatment. Which is totally believable because Hot Six Oil is formulated with pretty much every great natural ingredient you can think of. There’s a blend of oils including olive, castor, sweet almond and more. Plus other goodies, like Vitamins A, E and D as well as henna and ginseng. Basically, everything under the kitchen sink that nature has to offer to keep your tresses healthy and shiny.


Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner Review

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner

There’s many different things that can hinder retention and one of the most common is a lack of moisture. I’m big on moisturizing and sealing my hair regularly because it’s an easy way to make sure I’m keeping my tresses hydrated and healthy–especially my ends. My relaxed hair is very thick and dry so I heavily rely on a good leave-in conditioner to moisturize my hair and keep it healthy.

During a recent trip to Sally Beauty, I came across the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner. The Creme of Nature Argan Oil line is very popular among natural and relaxed hair gals so I was a bit curious to see how the leave-in would work for me. My hair loves argan oil and conditioner so it had to be a match made in heaven, right?


New Hair Goodies!

Hair Haul: Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme, Shea Moisture African Black Soap Dandruff Control Shampoo, Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner, Olive Miracle Maximum Strengthening Moisturizer Lotion, African Royal Hot Six Oil

Finding old gift cards when you clean out your wallet is such a great feeling. It’s like a reward for your hard work plus a special excuse to go shopping. I could always use that. Last week, I discovered some Sally Beauty gift cards so I decided to pick up a few new goodies to help me on my hair journey.


Kerastase Vox Box First Impressions

Kerastase Resistance Bain Therapiste Shampoo, Soin Premier Therapiste

It’s always a good day when I receive a Vox Box from Influenster! Most times, I receive goodies from brands I’m familiar with (and usually love) but every now and then I get to try something different. Which is the real treat. I’ve ended up trying some really great products that I probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise.

This time around I received some haircare goodies from Kerastase that I’m positive I would have walked right past if I spotted them out while shopping. My hair is pretty thick and curly so I tend to stick to the ethnic section of haircare aisles plus I prefer products that I can actually pronounce LOL. However, the Kerastase Vox Box has turned out to be a pretty good thing!

As I Am Leave-In Conditioner Review

As I Am Naturally Leave-In Conditioner

Bunning ain’t easy! Is it convenient? Hell yes. Most times I just wash my hair, let it air dry a bit, toss it in a bun and barely touch it for a week. Is it easy to create? Not on your life! Don’t get me wrong. Buns are a seriously simple hairstyle that just about anyone can achieve but it takes a little more work when your hair is long, thick and curly. I rely on 3 essential ingredients to achieve to the perfect bun:

  1. Water
  2. Oil
  3. Leave-In Conditioner

Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter Review

Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter

I’m usually always telling you guys what hot, new products to try next but a lot of times I discover amazing products from you guys and other bloggers. I’ve lost count how gems I’ve came across from reading reviews. One of my many influencers is Danielle, The Style and Beauty Doctor, another brown girl blogger who’s always coming across the good stuff. One day, she did a review on the Motions Pre-Wash Detangling Butter and the next thing I knew, I was running out to Walgreens for it.
