Friday’s 5 Loves: Top 5 Skincare Add-Ons

Friday LovesA few weeks ago I shared “Top 5 Daily CLEAR SKIN Products”. These are the products I use every single day to maintain my clear skin. While these are my essentials, there are a few other products that I use throughout the month to keep my skin looking its best.

www.curlsandmo.com lemon waterWater. I know. This should have been included on my first list. But, truthfully water is the number one ingredient. I drink as much water as possibly every day. I rarely drink juice and keep all other liquids to a minimum. It has made a big difference in my skin.

olay regeneristOlay Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System. The Olay microdermabrasion system is really great for diminishing dark spots. When I first started using it my skin was cray cray (yes, I wrote that) and I used it a lot more frequently. Now I use it a few times a month and I find that it still works but because it works so well I don’t have to use it as frequently. Check out my video review here and my written review here to get an in-depth understanding of how to use it and tips.

curlsandmo.com Deep-Down-Detox-Ultra-Cleansing-Mud-MaskFormula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Cleansing Mask. This mask is great for minimizing pores, cutting down on oil production (oil control) and extracting toxins from your skin. I reviewed it here. I don’t use it every week but whenever my skin seems to need a bit more TLC I’ll throw it on when I get home.

curlsandmo.com shea moisture even tone cremeShea Moisture Shave For Women Coconut And Hibiscus Even Skin Tone Creme. I have been using this lotion for a while now. I raved about it in this video and I still love it. It also helps reduce any dark spots. I usually use it at night after I cleanse and tone. It’s really thick so a little goes a long way but it doesn’t clog your pores. I’m assuming since it’s from the “Shave” line I could use it on my bikini line. Hmmm…

curlsandmo.com ponds anti wrinklePond’s Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream. During a recent Target trip I discovered this Pond’s cream – isn’t that how ALL new products are found? Smh – and I decided to try it. While I’m fortunate enough NOT to have wrinkles yet, I am going to start taking some preventive measures. The cream is really hydrating and moisturizing. When I remember to use it, my under eye area does look more alive and awake in the morning.

What are your beauty must-haves? Have you tried anything new lately? Please share below.

Natural Hair How-To: Fix Your Wack Conditioner

www.curlsandmo.com Fix Conditioner 1 (1)A while back I was in ULTA and I saw that güd conditioner was on sale. After hearing so many naturals rave about it I picked it up. I REALLY didn’t like it – it didn’t have any slip imo – so I gave it away. Then I picked up some Suave conditioner which also gets a lot of raves in the natural hair community. Continue reading

EVENT ALERT: Curlfriends Swap Party 7.23.13

Curlfriends Swap Party Flyer

If you’re like me then you probably have tons of natural hair products you don’t use that are just sitting under your sink collecting dust. But, if you’re REALLY like me then you also probably have a ton of accessories (acquired after going natural of course – lol) that are in perfect condition but you’re bored with.

Why not Swap them?

I’m hosting Curlfriends Swap Party, a night to hangout with other fun ladies, laugh, talk about hair and get some “new” products and accessories while getting rid of your old ones.

Curlfriends Swap Party will be on Tuesday, July 23rd from 6:30pm-9:00pm at STITCH Bar and Lounge (the home of Curly Card Night).

We also have some great raffles and swag bag goodies from these sponsors!
