Learn to Color Outside the Lines…

Learn to Color Outside the Lines…

Hey, hey hey! It’s that time again- time to see what all the fuss is about  or not! So the other day I thought I’d make my day off a “spa” and outdoor therapy session ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒž Can I just say, EVERY one needs time to recharge and release stress and negativity on a daily basis.

Anyway, I picked up some skincare goodies๐Ÿ˜‰ along the way, as I get ready for the glorious intensity of summer (*skincare freak alert*) and just, YEAH!! I know, I admit it, summer is my favorite season and I’m going to spend most of it outdoors๐ŸŒž

I loaded up on some goodies from LUSH , Kiehl’s Fresh, and few odds and ends from my local Fruitful Yield. The big surprise disappointment? The ultrabland fave cleanser! ๐Ÿ˜• It was greasy, unwieldy and called for waay too much drama than I was prepared to deal with at the end of the day. Yes it was hydrating, but the clean after the CLEAN UP? NOT worth the drama; look, I might have diva skin, but my skincare can definitely NOT be diva in kind๐Ÿ˜ฅ
As for the shower gel (it’s called beautiful, still not sure why)? Meh! They discontinued my favorite one so my LUSH journey continues.

Another surprise (in a good way) came in the former of an awesome organic black soap by Alafia. I always get a kick out of seeing beauty secrets from back home getting the spot light ๐Ÿ’„๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ˜‚. I remember my aunties using black soap for literally every skincare mishap, and remember thinking , “wow! This stuff is ugly but it’s like magic)๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway, given the diva nature of my skin, I decided to try the commercial version with a few drops of my vegan essential oils and, BAAM! AWESOME! This is now on my list of skincare faves๐Ÿ’„Uh did I mention it only cost nine dollars and some change for that awesome bottle, plus it’s WAAY cheaper than the LUSH brand of shower gel that left me feeling less than impressed!๐Ÿ˜‰

Bottomline, investigate and find what works for your skin and DON’T be afraid to try something new-color outside the lines for a change….Boomsies๐Ÿ˜‰
P.s. I’ve got tons more stuff to check out so laters๐Ÿ˜‰
