Simple SkinCare

Hey Ya’ll! I have had some trials when it comes to my skin. I’m 32 years old, I realize that I really don’t need to use all of these products to preserve my skin.

Some of the issues that I have are

♦︎ Dry skin

♦︎Blemish prone skin

♦︎Oily (usually during summer)

I wanted a skincare routine that met all of my needs but in a minimal way.

Cleanser

Since I have dry skin I wanted to get a cleanser that was moisturizing and softens. This Neutrogena Naturals is a cleanser and makeup remover… Yaaasss! It gets rid of all my face makeup without leaving my skin dry and tight.

Toner/ Astringent

This is an oldie but goodie and I am glad I found it again. It’s a great toner and  gentle cleanser. It has 14% alcohol but it does not dry out my skin.

Moisturizer

I have been using Simple for about a year. I love this moisturizer because there is SPF in it. I like that  doesn’t give a white cast on my face, it blends in well and it is perfect for under my makeup. I only use this during the day.

Sealant

I. Love. OliveOil.  I use this mostly at night, it works so well at sealing the moisture in from my cleanser and toner. It helps soothe my dry skin and it removes my eye makeup very well.

Mask

I’ve had this for a while and It’s a staple in my routine. This along with my face brush has lightened up my dark spots.

All of these products are under $20, so there are super affordable. Here is the review of the face brush!

Bantu Knot Fail

17'

Hey Ya’ll! I decided to try Bantu Knots. I wanted to branch out and see what other things I could do to my hair. Well… it didn’t go so well.

I don’t have a picture of the actual bantu knots but as you can see there is a lot of frizz.  That is because my hair was still damp when I took it down. Big. Mistake.

My hair shrinks severely when it dries and it is super coily. So the bantu knots became tighter the more my hair dried. I had to keep loosening them… it was just too much work.

My arm and hands were hurting from all that twisting and I was kind of over the whole process.

The next time I attempt these again my hair will be dry. It will save time, edges and scalp. lol

Palmer’s DC Protein Pack

50 Bridal ShowerIdeas We Love-3

Hey Ya’ll! Every once in a while we have to give our hair some extra love. I have medium porosity hair and I don’t need to use protein based conditioners often. I use this DC protein pack every couple of months to help with dryness; I tend to have dryness in my crown area.

I have been using this for a year and I really like my results. My hair responds positively to this deep conditioner. It’s more manageable, less frizzy, and it works great with my other products. Also I like the ingredients, there aren’t any red flags for me personally.

Have you tried Palmer’s products? Let me know!

Much Love,
