I tried a few new products this month and am sharing a few of my favorite items below.
SheaMoisture Deep Conditioning Mask – I have been using this deep conditioning treatment on my hair once a week and I love how it makes my curls feel! I deep condition under a hooded dryer for 15 minutes and then rinse out in the shower. I plan to continue these weekly treatments because my hair really looks so nice and moisturized afterwards.
No. 7 undereye cream – Okay this roll and glow eye cream, I can’t fully recommend yet because I’ve only used it on and off for about a week and to be honest, I haven’t seen any major results yet. I have, however, noticed a placebo effect. Because I want to use this product to reduce dark circles under my eyes, I end up going through my whole skincare routine way more often than I usually do. I cleanse, tone, moisturize and use the undereye treatment, as oppose to just using a makeup wipe and that’s it 😩 (I know, so bad!). But this eye treatment has a creamy unscented formula, and three small metal rollerballs that have a cooling effect once you roll it under your eyes. It’s so much fun to use, and because I look forward to this step in my skincare routine, it motivates me to do all the steps you’re supposed to do first.
Black Girl Magic Wines – My cousin recommended this wine company to me and I was so excited to try it because I love their marketing and they had a lot of positive reviews. I was shopping at Target and picked up two bottles from this company, one bottle of rose and the red blend. Out of the two, the rose was my favorite; I loved the crisp, refreshing taste.
Satin hair scarves – I ordered these satin-like hair scarves from Amazon and I honestly love them. They came in four different colors and I like that I can switch them out depending on which pajamas I wear. They are also great for protecting my hair from further damage while I sleep.
Dial soap – We were visiting my parents over a weekend and this was the soap in the guest bathroom. Lately, my morning routine has been very quick, just 30 minutes. So I skipped moisturizing one day because I was in a rush to clock in before starting work and by lunch time, I noticed my skin actually felt pretty moisturized. I went to the bathroom to check out the soap label and it said that there are added moisturizers to the bar. I was so surprised because I have very dry skin and this product really did make my skin feel nourished. I still recommend putting on lotion after showering, but if you are in a rush like I was, this soap will help you cut corners in your morning routine without regrets.
