Bath & Body Works Fragrance & Body Cream Favorites Haul

Hi Beauties,

I’m back with a Bath and Body works Fragrance and Body Cream Haul. LISTEN! Bath and Body has been a fragrance and body cream staple worldwide for many years. The deals & discounts honestly keeps me coming. If you’re looking for inexpensive body fragrances and body creams that smell great, you should definitely find your local Bath and Body works store. Each season brings a wide range of diverse fragrances.

I hate going inside the store, you can never get one item. Especially, when they have the buy 3 get 3 free sale. Those are the best deals and you can’t turn that down. I try to stock up on a few  products, so I don’t have to come back for awhile. The body creams are so handy. I like to keep one on my desk at work and in my purse. I love how the body creams are made with Shea butter and Coco Butter. Which makes the cream thick and moisturizing. It’s everything you want in a body cream. Since there’s a huge variety of beautiful fragrances there’s no reason why you couldn’t find a fragrance that suits you.

On my most recent stop to Bath and Body works, I stocked up on my ride or die fragrances and body creams.

Let’s dive in…

Coconut Oil Deep Repair Masque Review

Hi Beauties,

It’s the winter time and my natural hair tend to get very dry during these cold months. I have to make sure I’m constantly keeping my hair moisturized.

I really try to wash my hair with deep conditioner once a week.  It’s important to deep condition your hair a couple times a month. Deep conditioning your hair has many benefits, such as promotes moisture, hair loss prevention, elasticity, and adds shine and luster to your natural hair.

While shopping in my local Bealls Outlet. I came across this Coconut Oil Deep repair masque. To be honest the packaging is what drew me to it.  Like most things. While reading the back of the packaging, I read how this conditioner particularly caters to Dry or Damaged hair. When I purchase or make a my DIY deep conditioners, I like to choose a deep conditioner that fit my hair needs at that time. Right now my hair is dry and brittle. My hair definitely needs some deep restorion.

Reconstructer for Dry or Damaged Hair

I couldn’t wait to use this conditioner. The deep repair masque smells light like coconut oil. The texture is so soft and silky. My hair loves this stuff. My curls were so defined and full of elasticity and moisture. I apply the deep conditioner masque after I have washed and cleaned my hair. I section my hair in 4 sections and rack the deep conditioner in my hair. Cover hair with shower cap. I personally keep the deep conditioner in my hair for a few hours. Depending on the conditioner I’ll keep in over night.

Directions: Apply to clean, wet hair and combine through completely. Leave in for up to 7 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. No heat required. Do not use more than twice a week.

I will definitely be repurchasing this Coconut oil deep repair masque again. I was able to find this deep repair masque on Amazon: Escelsior Coconut Oil Deep Repair Masque

PhotoGrid_1486929322469.pngHi Beauties!

While reading a few beauty blogs, I came across the Low Budget and High end tag. I wasn’t nominated to do this tag so I nominated myself. I would love for you beauties to join me in answering the questions below.

Q: Do you have more low budget or high end products in your makeup collection?

A: Low Budget

A: Low Budget! I can’t push myself to pay more than $10 for mascara, even then I don’t want too.

Q: Low Budget or High-end Foundation?

A: Low Budget again. I own a lot of low budget foundations that I’m obsessed with.

Q: Low Budget or High-end Eye Shadow Palettes?

A: Concealer

Q: What product did you use to buy High-end, but you have you now switched out for a budget variety?

 A:  Lip stick, I started out buying high end lipstick until I found a huge variety of low budget lipstick that last just as long as high-end.          

Q: Why doesn’t this product have a low budget equivalent?

A: I don’t have one

My Holy Grail Facial Cleanser

Hi Beauties,

Let’s talk about our skin. Taking care of my skin is very important to me. I’m sure i’m not the only beauty who feels this way. My skin care routine is very basic. I only use 2-4 products depending on my skin and if I wore a lot of makeup that week. I try to stick to a weekly skin routine. Sticking to a routine can be difficult at first. It’s important to use products that fit your skin type. I’ll do a separate detailed blog on my skin care routine soon.

But… snapchat-1503260629

This weeks blog is about my ALL TIME favorite Facial Cleanser. LISTEN to me when I tell you that this stuff is the best thing since slice bread. LOL I’m just being honest. Before I buy anything especially beauty products I like to read reviews. Mainly, to see what other people think about a product before I spend my money on it. When it came to this facial cleanser, I found so many videos on YT, articles and recipes about this cleanser. I had to try it. My family and few of my friends are addicted to the cleanser now.  I’ve been using this product for about 2 1/2 years.

Here’s one of my beauty secrets.


Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

“World’s Most Powerful Facial”

Deep Pore Cleansing

100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay

 You can literally feel your face pulsating. 

img_0804

This facial cleanser, mud mask, clay mask,  it’s all above. It’s great for everything. Facials, acne, bodywraps, clay baths, dark spots, foot soaks, chilled clay for knee packs and insect bites!  You can also use bentonite clay as a shampoo cleanser on your hair naturals. My hair loves this stuff.

I’ve use this as a weekly deep pore cleanser on my face. You can see your pores being cleared in the mask. When I see that happen, I sometimes to add more product just to make sure the clay is deep inside my pores.

                                   I purchased my clay from amazon: Aztec Secret

20170202_231244     20170202_231227Here’s how to mix the clay together.

1.Mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water.

2. Use a non-metal bowl and utensil.

3.Stir the mixture into a smooth paste.  Add more clay or liquid as needed.

4.  Apply 1/8 in. to 1/4  to the face or other area.

5. Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin and 15-20 min for normal skin.

 Ingredients: 100% natural calcium bentonite (green) clay.

  You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation.  Feel Your Face Pulsate!  Remove clay by washing with warm water.  Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 minutes.  Removes impurities and dirt from the pores.

Clay w/ Honey & Water

Often times like to mix honey with my bentonite clay. Especially, during these winter months, when my skin is the driest. Honey is naturally antibacterial. it’s also great for preventing and treating acne.
Using honey can be very moisturizing, soothing and your skin will forever GLOW. I love using honey on my face.

I hope you beauties try this product it’s great. My skin loves and appreciate this clay. I hardly ever have break outs but when I do I grab this stuff and within a day or two the bump is gone. It’s amazing. Check it out and let me know what you think.


What’s your beauty secret?
