Keep Your Scalp Itch Free With Canviiy

canviiy

canviiy

The weather is finally starting to get cooler, and this is the time where my scalp starts to get itchy. I am so glad Canviiy showed up in my inbox with a free sample. Thank you Canviiy for the free sample. Y’all this product is so good. Canviiy is a combination of different oils and ingredients that, when used on the scalp with the easy to use applicator, stops the itch. It truly works. I tried the samples they gave me, and I was so amazed by it. I usually use tea tree oil to stop the itch, but Canviiy swears by their product and claim that it gives you a long-lasting scalp soothing sensation.

half-wigs-for-natural-hair

half-wigs-for-natural-hair
It is that time of the year again where I start to look for some wigs to use as protective styles for my natural hair. Half wigs are great because they are easy, usually cheap, low maintenance styles that can protect my natural hair from the cold, dry air. I always start the wig search process by going on YouTube and checking out the latest tutorials and wig hauls. I’ve seen quite a few wig hauls on these new Outre half wigs, and I think these might be the best half wigs for natural hair.

How I Save With Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons

Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Would you like to know how I save with health, beauty, and wellness Groupons? Yes. You. Do. A few months ago I taught you all how to save with Groupon Coupon, now I want you to know about Groupon’s main website.  I know a lot of people have heard about and used Groupon, but I was surprised to see how many hadn’t down either of those things. A few days ago, a few of my sorority sisters and I planned a girl’s night out. Some of them used Groupon for the very first time when we bought our wine and paint class. I was shocked.

Beauty Bit- Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

I received the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask from Brandbacker. This is an honest review.

I was so grateful to receive a full sized sample of the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask was sooooo good. It smelled so fragrant when I opened the jar up. I couldn’t help myself. I just took another whiff of the mask. Like right now. I sniffed it. It is $25 on Amazon, and is a Prime item.

This mask dried my oily skin up. When I was done with the mask, my skin looked bright, clean, and very clear. It didn’t look anything like the hot greasy mess that walked into the bathroom earlier. The mask is supposed to be used for 15-20 minutes, and all you have to do is use the tiniest amount. I have a feeling that the 4 oz. jar is going to last me a long time.

Battle of the Yaki Lace Front Wigs! Help Me Choose One!

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Ok guys and dolls! Please get me out of this hair dilemma. I need your help in picking out a yaki lace front wig. I have been looking at different yaki lace front wigs for months. Since I am natural, and very fond of protective styles, I want a wig that will mimic straightened hair so I don’t actually have to straighten my hair. I am so afraid of damage. After being natural since 2012, I want to keep my hair growing and strong. Protective styles, like twists and wigs, help my hair to grow because I am not playing in it or adding heat to it all the time. The thing I like about yaki lace front wigs is that they look more natural on my head. Sometimes I want a wig that looks like it could be my hair.

Hey everybody! I have a new product review for you. Body Merry sent me three free products to try via Brandbacker.com. I was excited to try them because they worked on beauty issues that I have been dealing with, and I had never heard of Body Merry before whose name slightly sounded like Bloody Mary in my head so I was like yea I will try these products. Body Merry has a bunch of products on Amazon and offer Prime shipping!I really wish I could have done a video review for you all. I had house guests this weekend, so that wouldn’t have happened.

Beauty Bit- Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme Where Are You???

milani amore matte lip creme

milani amore matte lip creme

Qui êtes vous Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme? I have been looking for the new matte liquid lipsticks everywhere. There was a crazy sale on them last week, and all of the CVS’s sold out of them. It didn’t matter because a ton of other stores online and otherwise have sold out of them. They are retailed at $8.99. I think that is very affordable for this kind of drugstore beauty product. I have tried the new Milani Matte Lipsticks before. They are great. That and the fact that the lip creme’s have been getting rave reviews are the reasons why I need to find these things!!!
