So I’ve been test driving another brand of skincare products. Have y’all heard of Desert Essence? A Twitter friend (so can’t remember who) put me on them and my skin has been radiant ever since. Hit the jump to get the deets on this all-natural cleanser and moisturizer.

LUSH Big Blue bath bomb

LUSH Big Blue bath bomb

I think this bath bomb is total winner. LUSH.com says this baby contains lemon, sea salt and lavender. I wasn’t in love with Big Blue at first smell. But when I heard that it would turn my tub a beautiful hue of blue, I snagged it up with the quickness. How gorgeous is that? I […]

Milk for the Face: Korres Milk Proteins Cleansing Wipes

I’ve been wearing my invisible “I’m Lactose Intolerant and Proud” badge for quite some time. Hey now…don’t laugh at me. Us Lactose Intolerant kids are cool. I cut regular consumption of dairy products out of my life years ago. But er uh, I think I may need to make an exception. And they are only […]

Dry Skin Confessions

Oh gee, how do I start this off? I guess I should just come out with it. I have dry skin. And I’ve always had dry skin. It’s not something I’m proud about either. It’s embarrassing. You can’t exactly go around scratching your lower back with intense frustration in public without people giving you the side-eye. […]

Foundation for Newbies: Cover FX Big Cover Up kit

Now y’all know me. I’m not much of a foundation wear-er. A lot of it has to do with my acne-prone skin and my  crazy belief that foundation will break me out even more. And then there’s the whole “being a woman of color” thing and trying to find the perfect foundation with all of […]

Acne Sucks: Alba Botanica Natural ACNEdote Deep Pore Wash

Welp…it looks like I’m having another one. And it’s bad. I’m assuming it’s just my skin wanting to attack me for whatever reason. I’ve been drinking my daily 64 oz of water and taking my daily vitamins. Then again, my dermatologist has prescribed me a new cream and perhaps my skin is having a reaction […]
