Product Review: Facetox Mask

facetox-mask-blog-review-image

 

I wrote about the benefits of using a face mask some days, and how I look forward to treating my face to a good mask every week. So I was super excited when this Facetox Facemasks Box landed on my doorstep. I am very wary of what I put on my skin these days; my skin is quite sensitive and it usually reacts badly to many skin products I try. That was one of the reasons why I didn’t want to take on products to review on Fashion and Style Police in the early days, because I thought I would upset my skin a little too much. But in the end, I decided to go ahead with reviewing products on the blog, and I am glad I did because I have fallen in love with most of the products I have reviewed, and I have introduced them to hundreds of thousands of people, so it is a win-win.

This Facetox mask is an organic mask and it is meant to extract, pull and detoxify the skin, and it does all that and more.

I found the instructions straight forward and easy to follow. All I had to was mix the Mixed Facetox Blend (Step 01) and Organic Rose Water (Step 02) together in the plastic bowl, and apply the mixture on my cleansed face. I left it for 30 minutes, and wiped off with warm water and face towel.

How to Care for your Lips this Autumn/Winter

Hair Care

 

Autumn is here and so it is time to pay our skin and lips some extra attention. I recently raved about how cool lip balms were, and I am stocking on a few at the moment. What many people don’t realize is that the weather doesn’t only affect the skin on your body but also affects the skin on your lips. In fact, the lips are worse hit during the cold weather.
Sadly, the lips get the least amount of care in some ladies’ skin care routine. The skin on your lips is very sensitive such that a little change in weather can affect your lips. The cold weather can make your lips go dry, chapped or cracked. If your lips are not attended to soon enough, the weather can cause them to even bleed, and this is not a pretty look.
Dry, chapped or cracked lips can make you less appealing. The flaky skin makes the skin on your lips look uneven. Sometimes when you apply lipstick or lip balm it can get caked up in the dried skin on your lips.
Here are some lip care tips that will help you have healthy-looking, smooth and soft lips this autumn/winter:
Avoid bad lip habits
I’ve observed a lot of women who have the habit of biting or licking their lips for no reason. Some even peel the dried skin off their lips with their fingers. Such habits can make your lips dry out and will leave your lips in bad shape. Biting or pealing the dried skin from your lips can make your lips bleed and cause injuries that will take a long time to heal. The best way to ensure that you have good-looking lips is to stop those bad habits. Your lips will thank you for it.
Exfoliate your lips
If you thought exfoliation is only for your body then think again. Your lips also need to be exfoliated to get rid of dried skin and reveal new skin. It’ll make your lips smoother and easier to evenly apply lipstick.
Use a natural scrub to exfoliate your lips. In a bowl mix 1 tablespoon of sugar, with a teaspoon of honey and a bit of olive oil. Apply this scrub over your lips and gently work it in with your fingers, then wash off after a few minutes. The granules of sugar help remove the dried skin while the honey and olive oil help keep your lips soft. A toothbrush can also do the trick.
Moisturize your lips
Since the weather dries up your lips, moisturizing your lips daily is a must. Apply lip balm morning and night, as well as any time you feel your lips are drying out. When choosing a lip balm, make sure that it contains Vitamins A and D and natural oils to give your lips the necessary pampering.
If you want to go all natural, use of coconut oil. Coconut oil is amazing! It keeps your lips soft and heals any cuts that may have been caused by the weather. Take a little bit of coconut oil and apply it on your lips morning and night immediately after you come out of the shower. The coconut oil gets easily absorbed into the skin and can last the whole day.

How do you take care of your lips during the cold season?

 

My Natural Hair Transition

Hair Journey Image

 

I have decided to start documenting my hair transition journey on Fashion and Style Police. I started the journey to natural hair last year and I honestly can’t remember ever seeing my hair natural look this healthy. I decided to stop using relaxers and other chemicals, and grow my natural hair because my processed hair was so weak and unhealthy. I stopped paying attention to it years ago, and I could see the result of my lack of attention, my hair-line was disappearing quickly, I had to do something about it.

This is the first time I am showing a glimpse of my natural hair on the blog. It is usually braided or buried unde a wig or some sort of hair extensions. I have had a love and hate relationship with my hair since I was young. I didn’t like the way it looked or felt. I guess we women of colour were programmed not to love our kinky hair, because all we saw in the magazines and on TV were the straight, silky hair, which is nothing like the African hair.

I am happy to say I have recently fallen in love with my natural hair and all its stubbornness (it never does what I want it do ever), and I am looking forward to styling it in different ways. But I need to grow it first. I became motivated to transition back to natural hair since having my twins. My daughter’s beautiful African kinky hair is hair goals for me. I love everything about her hair, and I enjoy caring for it. Her hair reminds me of how my hair was as a kid . I had beautiful natural hair that I destroyed with chemicals and lack of care. I am determined to grow my hair back to the original length, and I started  this transition journey with a bunch of cool natural hair products, I can’t wait to rave about, so look out for my review posts.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely weekend.
