Target Fall Beauty Box

Happy Wednesday loves!

Have any of you noticed it’s almost impossible to grab a Target Beauty Box before it sells out?! Well miraculously, I was able to grab one this time for the Fall Beauty Box. I only paid $5 which is pretty good considering that you get samples and one or 2 full size products. I personally wanted this box just because there was more hair products for curly hair!

Skincare:

Pretty Animalz by Look Beauty: Panda Calming Facials Sheet Mask- it provides intensive hydration and calms skin with an aromatic lavender scent. I will definitely use this on my at home spa day. The first full size product!

St. Ives: Invigorating Apricot Scrub – it helps reduce breakouts before they occur while it’s made of natural exfoliants for a gentle and deep cleanse. I personally I don’t use this for my face. From what I’ve learned: Apricot seed is indeed very sharp so I only use this for my at-home pedicures.

 

Haircare:

Curls: Blueberry Leave In Conditioner – it’s a special formula that helps to hydrate, boost healthy hair growth and support strong keratin production.

SheaMoisture: Argan Oil & Argan Milk Shampoo and Blowout Creme – argan oil, shea butter and almond milk gently cleanses to tame frizz and improve shine. I’ve received this before and I’m glad I got another sample of it! The blowout creme works perfectly for blow drying curly hair.

Curls Unleashed: Curl Defining Creme – it’s a lasting moisture that treats even the most dry and damaged hair, leaving it soft, smooth and manageable.

Body Care:

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion – cocoa butter enriched with Vitamin E helps to smooth marks, heal, soften and tone skin. I’ve heard about this everywhere, however, it’s my first time trying it out!

Chapstick: Hydration in Blood Orange – an advanced 3-1 formula that helps moisturize, renew and transform for more youthful-looking lips. Another full size product!

There you have it loves! A review of the Target Fall Beauty Box! What do you think? Have any of you tried or received any Target beauty boxes?

L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Care Review

Happy Wednesday loves!

I recently took the plunge and dyed my hair a medium red brown, so when Influenster sent me the L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner and 10-in-1 Elixir, I couldn’t have been more excited! I don’t know about you, but when I dye my hair, I feel like sometimes the color dies down and fades away within a few weeks. Or maybe that’s just the reds. :p

The Claims:

*For the Shampoo and Conditioner, it claims that it’s a moisturizing formula with Rosemary flower botanical that quenches dryness,and keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks.

*Elixir: Nourishes, Hydrates, Soothes, Repairs, Density, Smooth, Textures, Strengthens, more softness and adds shine.

**100% Sulfate-Free, Paraben-Free, Free of Harsh Salts and Dye-Free

My Impressions:

I personally love it. The shampoo and conditioner both smell heavenly (a hint of rosemary and floral scents). My favorite would have to be the 10-in-1 elixir. It really did make my hair feel softer and hydrated.

I definitely look forward trying the Deep Nourishing, Repair & Defend and the Frizz-Defy lines!

3rd Annual Au Natural Love Hair Conference

Hello guys!

I’ve lately been getting used to my curly hair and I’m thinking about starting to go natural (hair care). I was again on Eventbrite (woo-h00!) and came across a hair conference in Long Beach. I signed up for their 3rd Annual Au Natural Love Hair Conference.

Located at the Grand Event Center in Long Beach, I approached the room and I was greeted with a friendly face.As I checked in, I received a swag bag full of hair care goodies.

swag

There were giveaways, speakers, talks, light refreshments, some entertainment and even a panel.

In the back of the room, there were a few vendors selling their products.

The Panelists:

Thomas TJ Loftin: He’s a business coach and motivational speaker. He spoke about creating and helping each other’s businesses.

Lisa Puerto: She’s an international speaker and bestselling author. She’s the first to write a book about real estate for the youth! If only they would have thought about that in my childhood.

Courntey Danclar: After working mostly for corporate, Courtney traveled to West Africa and thus created Ankara Nation Inc, which is mostly African clothing.

Tracy Sanders: An attorney and author of “Natural Hair in the Workplace: What Are Your Rights?” I never knew an interviewer could deny you after your interview due to natural hair!

Dr. Bambou Ada Diagne: A Nobel Peace Recipient and CEO of International Ventures and Trade, specifically Imports/Exports. She actually started as a midwife, and she mostly exports and imports products from West Africa.

I learned a lot of things business-wise and more about natural hair! I’ve always heard about co-wash but I never knew what it was, until that day! The same with pre-poo.

The creator of this beautiful event was Kelsie Lyn who is a makeup artist and a natural hair specialist.

What I loved the most about this event was it wasn’t all about hair. It’s about loving yourself as you are naturally.

I look forward to the next Au Natural Love Hair Conference!
