I love using oils on my skin and hair. When Actually Organic Argan Oil offered me a free bottle to try, I was very excited. Not all argan oil is created equal. This particular brand is very good because it actually made from 100% pure and cold pressed argan oil from Africa. This isn’t the synthetic-kinda mixed with other questionable things type of oil. The owner of the company went to find the purest, best smelling oil. I have been using this oil for a month now. I use it on my cuticles, my hair, the corners of my eyes, my lips, and my elbows. I really have been getting my use out of this oil. I really talk about how I use the oil in the video below. The 4 ounce bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil is on sale at Amazon for $23.99. I was actually given the 1 ounce bottle. It costs $11.99 and lasts a long time. After all I have been using it for, I still have a great deal of oil left. You really don’t need that much oil for each use. Check out hte video below for more.
Halloween is right around the corner, and I am sure some of y’all still haven’t figured out what you all want to be. I’m not so sure if I know what I want to be either. I don’t even know if I am doing anything special that night. Hmmm… Maybe I will go as a nasty woman? Anyway. Here are five Halloween makeup tutorials that will surely inspire you to trick or treat or just wait for the 50% off candy sales the very next day like I do.
Thanks to BrandBacker and Valentia, I was recently given the chance to try the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. I have used and reviewed another Valentia product before and loved it. When I was asked to try this product, I was very excited because I know they have some really good products. The Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum is another keeper.

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.
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.
It has been a long, long time since I really blogged. I am now done with school. You can see some of the images from my final portfolio show on Instagram @thefatandskinny. I am going to try and blog more regularly now. My first blog post back will be this quick BH Cosmetics haul. I bought some amazing items from BH Cosmetics and I just wanted to let you know about them. All three items ( BH Floral Blush Duo in Tulip, the Contour & Blush Palette 2, and the 10 pc Sculpt and Blend Brush Set) got amazing reviews. See my haul video below.
I know a lot of us have a hard time finding our foundation shade, but I have found two easy ways to show you how to find your foundation shade. MatchmyMakeup.com and Findation.com are two great websites that let you search to find your foundation shade. *Please note that this isn’t for first time foundation users. You must have tried or know your shade in one foundation before you can continue in the search for your shade.
I am loving these natural hair tips for the summer from LHDC-TV. She basically talks about letting your hair down and out for the summer, and that is what I have been doing myself. I have been wearing a wash and go all summer long. No wigs here…at least until the winter. With my hair, a wash and go is something super easy to do. Have you been trying new hair styles this summer? What have you been doing with your hair?
Have you ever wondered how to pineapple natural hair at night? Pineappling is where you put your hair up at night instead of retwisting it that night. It is an easy way to keep your hair lasting throughout the week without all of the work. Even though @blackonyx77 has long hair, you can do this on short hair too by making many mini pineapples at night. The other great thing about this hairstyle is that you can rock it out as well with a really cute scarf.
MissJazzy2Classy always has some really great YouTube beauty videos. Here she shows you how to lay your wig. I figured I would post this since people are always asking me. Laying your wig is the best way to make it look realistic on your head. She does it in a really fast and easy way, so you should be able to do this in no time. Subscribe to her channel and check out all of the beauty goodness.
I love temporary hair color for natural hair because you can spray it in and then wash it out. I have been using some sprays that I recently got from the BSS and my local Sally Beauty Supply. The only problem I have found is that it sometimes gets hard and crusty, so I let it dry and then kind of knock the flakes before I go. You can also use hair chalk and mousse. This is the temporary hair color I use from Sally Beauty Supply. In MissKenK’s video, she shows you how to properly spray and chalk the hair. Enjoy! Photo from Sally Beauty Supply!
Murray’s Edgewax 100% Australian Beeswax is the affordable edge control solution for natural hair. I found it at Walmart for around $3. This is like the low-cost alternative to Hick’s Edges. I swear it works. I have like 4 category natural hair. I actually have two different textures, and it smooths down.
FTC: I used a voucher the company gave me to purchase the Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads. This is an honest review.
Are the Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads with Beta Hydroxy the fastest dark spot remover? Well they are the fastest I have ever used. I am so glad Studio Gear gave me a voucher to use. I can’t thank them enough. I was going to buy similar pads from Avon, but they were sold out. Thank God! Seriously. I have used numerous products to get rid of dark spots. These pads started working in a week. A WEEK?! You read that all the way right. I highly recommend them. Get it for $35 dollars.
I finally bought the As I Am Coconut Cowash. I know I am late to the party, but I love this stuff. It cleaned all of the gooky product I had left in my hair and left it incredible soft. I bought it for $9, but the website site says it is $8.99. I actually saw it at Sally’s for $6.99 though. Wherever you get it from, I guarantee that it is worth the price.
I was sent a concealer palette Rosewholesale.com and asked to review their website. The website has men and women’s clothes, a few plus size items, bags, shoes, and other accessories. The thing that I like the most about the Rosewholesale.com are the beauty products. I love websites with low priced beauty products. The whole website is super affordable, but I love that the beauty products are so affordable because I can buy tons of eyeshadow and concealer palettes, makeup tools, and more for less!
Has anybody tried the new way to curl your eyelashes? YouTube makeup guru Wayne Goss has a tutorial on a totally brilliant way to curl your lashes. You basically use gel eyeliner as an actual gel to hold your lashes in place all day. They give your lashes hold and color, so when you put mascara on… your lashes instantly pop!
Nanacoco Lip Gloss is the best beauty supply store lip gloss. I had always heard good things about it from other beauty bloggers and saw lots of things about it on Twitter and Instagram. Everybody loved it. I mean they raved about the lip gloss. I tried to find it at some on the beauty supply stores near me, but I couldn’t find it until I randomly stumbled one 15 minutes from my house.
