I have had a slew of beauty related issues over the years which has ranged between thinning hair, back and chest acne and cellulite. After trialing many products, I have found a list of essentials which always work, and although I’m still trying new things; if I have an adverse reaction I always go back to these safe places to rectify the situation.
My hair is a natural afro and I can proudly say I have been chemical free since 2003. I have tried many products but my hair is always silky soft and tangle free when I use Mizani Supreme Oil. I sometimes add a bit of coconut oil to the conditioner for an at home deep treatment.
A special mention need to be extended to – Shea Decadence Mango Butter Kit. Their conditioner, latte and curl balm are a close second.
I never have an issue with spots but I do get the occasional blemish. I use Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm or Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I exfoliate with Afrodeity Caribbean Coconut Face Scrub or Urban Veda scrubs. Or Shea Butter Cottage Black Soap if I have had a break out for some reason. I moisturise with simple Shea Butter; I’ve found that simplicity is best when it comes my face.
I am a MAC Studio Fix girl and have been for many years but I am currently experimenting with new foundations so will keep you posted. For now; that is the go to product for daily use. I also love Fashion Fair Mascara and Dior Lipsticks.
Wahl Nails and Poi Nail polishes have the greatest range of colours, the best nudes for dark skin and the best application. They seem to last longer than most too other options too.
The Body Shop products are staples in my home, the Shea Butter, Strawberry and Moringa body wash, exfoliating scrub and body butters are in constant use. We also use Shea Butter Cottage Raw Shea Butter and Shea Decadence Body Glaze, an overall great conditioning oil containing a blend of fruit and nut oils: Safflower, Grapeseed oil, Shea oil , Jojoba oil, Macadamia oil & Vitamin E.
