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!

The Run Down

♥ Budget Friendly ($ 7.99)

♥ Small and good for traveling

♥ Two speeds (High and low)

♥Easy to clean brush head

♥ Simple to use

 

My only “con” is that there wasn’t an extra brush head that came with it. You have to order them online. But they are 2.99 sooo… it’s okay!

Shea Moisture Black African Soap

 

 

happy birthday to you

 

Hey Ya’ll!! We are back with yet another Shea Moisture product review: Black African Soap. We have been using this line for a couple of months and we love it of course!!! The Black African Soap Skincare Line is geared towards people with blemish and troubled skin (acne).  The Black African Soap line has three main ingredients; Black African Soap, Tamarind Extract, and Tea Tree Oil. We use the Black African Soap Bar, Problem Skin Toner, and Clarifying Mud Mask.   Here are the deets!

The Main Ingredients

Black African Soap :  natural remedy for troubled skin

Tamarind Extract :  naturally exfoliates and brightens skin

Tea Tree Oil:  has antiseptic  properties

Shea Moisture describes the Black African Soap as a line that keeps problem skin hydrated, balances oily and blemish complexions, leaves skin smooth, shine free and is great under makeup.

Black African Soap Bar: this lathers up nicely but not too much. We noticed that our skin isn’t dried out after washing our face. The smell is decent and not strong at all.

Problem Skin Toner: love this stuff!!! It is not drying at all and for us, it keeps the oiliness at bay during these hot summer days.

Clarifying Mud Mask: This mask is amazing for any breakouts that may occur but the scent is a little strong at first but we have gotten used to it.

Pros

Moisturized skin

Skin feels really smooth

Black spots from acne are fading

Cons

Problem skin  Toner needs to be a little bit bigger..lol

Lesley and I have used everything out there for our skin since our high school days. It worked but our skin was dry or it wouldn’t work at all. Using these products gives our skin the balance, moisture and keeps the breakouts to a minimum.

You can find more information on these skincare products here.

Have you tried any of Shea Moisture’s skincare line? If so which one?

Much Love,
