Beauty Bit- Actually Organic Argan Oil Review

FTC: I was given this bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil for review. This is an honest review.
actually organic argan oil

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.

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.

Beauty Bit- Temporary Hair Color For Natural Hair

temporary hair color

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!

This is my favorite brand of temporary hair color!

Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads

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.

Beauty Bit- As I Am Coconut Cowash Review

As I Am Coconut Cowash

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.

Beauty Bit- Rosewholesale.com Review

rosewholesale.com

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!
