Palmers COCOA BUTTER FACIAL SCRUB

Hello again!

Let's face it- looking young forever is what we all want. When you reach a certain age you start noticing the fine lines-
In my twenties taking good care of my skin was far from my mind I think it's because I  didn't wear much make then.

So I've been trying to find ways to make my skin look better and youthful without going to extreme measures. Here's one of them-


I exfoliate regularly because I learned that dead skin can make you look old and tired.
My current obsession is the Palmers brand.
This exfoliater gently cleanses, and  removes the dead skin, leaving skin super moisturised and fresh.


Product info and Details 
Exfoliates, Refines, Polishes with Micro-fine Cocoa Beads Fresh White Lilly Fragrance Micro-fine crushed Cocoa Beans gently exfoliate, removing dead skin cells to reveal smoother skin beneath. This enhances the skin s surface allowing it to better absorb the daily moisturizer or night cream. Beneficial Ingredients: Cocoa and Shea Butters : deeply moisturizes and nourishes Micro-fine Cocoa Beans : buff away dead skin cells to brighten skin  Vitamin E : powerful antioxidant  Aloe Vera : soothes and calms skin Milk Proteins : helps improve skin s texture and tone Evening Primrose : soothes stressed skin Palmer s is against animal testing.

Instantly opening the lid you get that yummy cocoa smell- just snap out of it & don't eat it lol..I'm happy that it's free from parabens and the crushed shells of the  cocoa beans are used as the exfoliant.( This excites me)

How I use it: 
I wet my face then apply the scrub gently in  circular strokes. I massage for about 5 minutes and leave on for another 5 minutes. I rinse with cold water to shrink the pores.

My Experience:
This product does the job ya'll. My face feels clean and rejuvenated afterwards. I use it often like four times a week maybe even more cos it's so gentle. I have sensitive skin with some dry patches  in some areas but after using this product dry patches are no more.    
Honostly I do feel that my skin is glowing. I always follow it up with a moisturiser, I'm currently using the  Palmers Even Tone Fade Cream. It manages to hydrate my skin and keep it moisturised without irritating it.

I would buy these  products again because I'm in love! Oh- and it can be used as foot scrub and body scrub too!
Side note* I buy all of my own products and reviews are based on my personal favourites*

Nature's Gate silicone free conditioner

Hi there!

As you already know I'm a sucker for conditioners -  and I'm always scouting for new and better ones.
I first saw Nature's Gate conditioner at Dischem. I didn't really take much notice of it but when I realised that they are  silicone, paraben and sulphate free my curiosity got aroused. I don't hear much about this brand in the natural community world. It doesn't contain  any harsh or synthetic ingredients.
Aloe vera and macadamia oil caught my attention so I bought two.

Ingredients Water, stearyl alcohol, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, benzyl alcohol, stearalkonium chloride, panthenol, sclerotium gum, hydrolyzed quinoa, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, borago officinalis (borage) seed oil, macadamia ternifolia (macadamia) seed oil, tocopherol, ascorbic acid, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, persea gratissima (avocado) fruit extract, viola tricolor (pansy) extract, sesamum indi…

Diy African Black Soap ( sulphate free ) shampoo*

Hey there curlies!

Don't you just love a product that is budget friendly, has multi usage benefits... Aaand... works ridiculously well too?
African Black soap happens to be one of those- I've been using this soap for about a year. My hair never feels stripped or crunchy but clean and moisturised(?)  No shampoo has ever left my hair moisturised before.
African black soap has some healing properties and is antifungal. Its known to help with scalp and skin conditions such as eczema, dandruff, psoriasis and other irritations you may have going on up there. As you know- getting rid  of scalp issues helps promote a healthy environment for your hair to grow.


I have a soft spot for this soap because it's all natural I can never go wrong with that. My staple is ABS; it's cheaper and more effective than experimenting with other shampoos.  Anyways let's get on with it- 
Here's what I used:)

Gone bananas...Purity DIY bomb combo...

Hi ya'll!

I noticed the happiness of my hair ever since I started DIY-ing my own deep conditioners.
I love mixing up concoctions in my kitchen just for the love of my hair and I've become quite the mixtress....


 Thanks to Maxine Arnold- much love to this natural hair queen- find out all about her journey and regimen here. She introduced us to the banana Purity. I hate putting food on my hair but Purity was just the perfect solution! I named it 'my bomb combo' cos thats exactly what it is. It's filled with moisturizing goodness!

I did some research and here's what I found:
Bananas are rich in vitamins, potassium and calcium.
Great for hair growth
Helps with hair fall Has healing properties
Gives shine and moisturises and the list goes on....

It's everything for dry, course and brittle hair. My hair feels stronger and is shinier everytime- it's all kinds of awesomeness...
Now I'm always switching things up depending on the needs of my hair, so play ar…
