Acne Super Mask

I have been on an organic skincare journey since last March. As a result I have been testing a few products out.

Here is my lastest (and it’s 100% Jamaican made – thanks Morgan’s Creek |I love this store|) :

So after cleansing with my Morgan’s Creek Acne Treatment Bar ( made with Turmeric, Neem and Coconut Oil); I use my fingertips to gently place the mask all over my face then I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes.

I then wash it off with lukewarm water. My face always feels super soft and refreshed. I have not had any acne break-outs since using this mask!

Now I will say the only issue I have is that it TAKES FOREVER to wash off as it leaves a yellowish residue on your face. I usually have to cleanse again and then I wipe my face off with Witch Hazel ( which I use as my toner/ astringent)

I am going to try this mask a few more times until the jar is finished. Will it replace my Bentonite Clay Mask? I don’t think any time soon, but let’s stick with it and see. But it’s still a great mask if you’re looking to try something new. ‘

Have you tried this mask? Let me know what you think!

A Bombshell in Bloom

I love smelling great. Although VS in America no longer sells this, I got it in the U.K. as a gift a few months back in July and it is still available on Amazon.

IT SMELLS AMAZING.

Feminine – Fresh. Floral. Light. Perfect for Spring/ Summer… but really you can wear it all year round.

Here’s how the bottle looks:

REVIEW: OSSION Ultra Aqua Hair Wax

Hey Loves! I hope you are all doing fabulous as always. Life got a bit busy BUT that doesn’t mean I can’t squeeze a review in!

As you know, I love me some laid edges so I am always seeing what works best for my hair.

Okay so personally, and for my natural 4C hair this product is great! I have seen other reviews saying it works best being applied to wet hair. That is definitely not the case for me. My hair frizzes faster when I use on completely wet hair. So I spray my hair with a little water (as I do when styling daily), apply my natural oil, then moisturizer, then I apply my EcoStyler Gel right before I use the OSSION Ultra Aqua Hair Wax.

Like every product, after a few days a gray-ish residue but if you really love that all day sleek neat up -do or just some really laid edges, get this now!

I saw on amazon this is going for about 15- 20 USD which is pretty bizarre for me because here in Jamaica I get it for 400JMD (approx. 3.50USD). Which is amazingly cheap.

REVIEW: Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges

This is by far one of my favorite edge control. It is one of the only one that I have used that last at least half a day or more  (and it is HOT in Jamaica).

I use it along with my EcoStyler Gel (if I want a longer hold)  but most times I quickly just use it alone on the go.

I have seen the best results when I use a full finger tip size of the product (it has a pretty thick texture) and coat it around the edges first. Then I would use my boar bristle brush and brush into my style or apply as the last step of the style. This way the product definitely goes a long way.

Depending on your hair type, you may use more or less. I have kinky- coils 4B/ 4C hair
