Are You Applying Your Skincare in the Proper Order?

The Beauty aisles can be a scary place, especially if it’s your first time venturing into the world of glam. The skincare aisles are even more daunting with cleansers, night oils, sheet mask, toners, and serums galore. After chatting it up with the beauty concierge, dropping a good portion of your paycheck, and going home with the brand new skin care regimen, you realize you have no idea what product you’re supposed to use first, and you find yourself wondering if the toner should go before or after the serum.

My Thoughts on the Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex

If you were to look in my bathroom closet, you’d find an array of Shea Moisture Products for hair and body. The Shea Moisture line has been a consistent staple in my natural hair regimen since going natural years ago.

I haven’t been on a proper vacation in forever so I’ve become accustomed to living vicariously through everyone else. The main reason we haven’t packed our bags and jet-setted is because each year we choose to use the money for other things, you know like purchasing a home and for the past two years, we’ve been tackling paying off debt. Though I haven’t been on a trip in a while it doesn’t stop… View Post
