Let's start with the 12 oz $8.49 Ambi Soft & Even Creamy Oil moisturizer. This product is supposed to include shea butter which will soften your skin and olive oil which will help to seal in the moisture. Now here is the big claim behind this product- the light weight non greasy formula will help your skin to lock in moisture for 24 hours. I applied this lotion to my arms and legs and it really is a non greasy formula but hold your horses on that 24 hour thing. I was ashy in about 30 minutes. Perhaps I ash up faster than others who knows, but what I do know if that that beautifully light sheen that I had when I first applied the product faded quickly. I would not buy this product even again especially since it includes two parabens.
Next I tried the Even & Clear exfoliating wash which has gentle microbeads that are designed to gently remove dead skin from your face. Vitamins E and C have been included in the formula along with soy extracts to enrich our skin. The facial wash even has salicyclic acid which is supposed to prevent pimples from making a home on your face. I am always a little worried when it comes to products that include salicyclic acid because I know that I have sensitive skin. I must report that I do like the product and the exfoliating beads are very gentle yet not so gentle that it feels as if nothing is happening. For me using this product daily is not an option because it will dry out my skin so I have to be careful. Other with less sensitive skin may be just fine using this $6.99 product daily. I should also note that overall, my skin has been doing really well in recent months because I am drinking so much water so I can't totally attribute my clear skin to this product.
Since I am stretching my relaxer until December, someone asked if I could describe / show how I am wearing my hair through this period of time.
I wear different style depending on my mood or when I plan on washing my hair. However I have attached two pictures of the main style that I wear while stretching. Basically I put my hair in a banana clip (I'm wearing a black on in the picture) and then I fold my hair over like a French roll, stick a few bobby pins in it and Im good to go. I ususally leave a little bang out and flip it back and clip it with a bobby pin as well.
The first two pics were shots taken from my flip camera hence the quality. The last pic was taken on another day but it was at the end of the day and messy but hopefully you get the idea of the style.
I also started using BeeMine again and this time I will do my best to remain consistent so I can post that review ASAP.
Have a great weekend everyone.
