Beauty By Shea Review& Giveaway CLOSED (=

Hey hunnibees!
I'm back with a review i've been looking forward to, thanks to Beauty By Shea I was able to try out 100% raw organic unrefined shea butter.
This was new for me as I had never used shea butter, surprising right? (except trying my sisters on my skin once.) 
Shea butter has numerous benefits and has a great mix of emollients with Vitamins A, E, F & K.

  • Natural SPF, great for skin and hair protection from UV rays
  • Great for irritated skin and scalp problems, whether your scalp is itchy or you have dandruff (shea absorbs into the scalp and doesn't clog your pores)
  • Amazing sealant to lock in moisture and produce softening effects
  • Natural heat protectant ( can't wait to try it next time I straighten my hair.)

There's so many uses for shea butter that it's pretty much an all around great product
  • Caring for your cuticles
  • Lip balm for soft, moisturized lips
  • Healing of scars
  • Eyelash/Eyebrow growth
  • Helps to lay down edges
  • And much more! (=
I recently used the shea butter for a twistout instead of my usual coconut oil and must I say...I LOVE IT. The shea butter gave a natural stretch to my twistout and the shine was gorgeous. This will definitely become a staple to my twistouts.

Esutra's Golden Flaxseed Review

Hey hunnibees!
I've always wanted to try out flax seed and I finally had the chance to review some (=
These flaxseeds are by the company Esutra's (this company has amazing stuff by the way)

Also the flaxseeds are so pretty, this picture does no justice. If you haven't heard much about flax seeds here are some benefits:
  •   source of Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and lignans that exhibit a number of properties that are essential to good health.
  • Fights Heart Disease, High Cholesterol
  • Fights Cancer, Diabetes, Constipation
  • Is a Brain food and helps with ADHD + Memory Loss
  • Anti-Inflammatory -Helps decrease inflammation
  • Helps with Weight Loss
  • Great for PMS + menopausal symptoms -including Hot flashes
To yield these great benefits you should grind the flaxseed, but, alas I haven't been able to grind them. I've ate them sprinkled on salad but you wont get the true benefits without it being ground down. Luckily there has been something i've been wanting to try forever..FLAXSEED GEL.

Hair Benefits:
  • Encourages hair growth
  • Supple, moisturized, shiny hair
  • Low price for lots of product yield
  • Nourishing for the hair 
  • Great definition without the crunchy feeling

You'll be seeing my post on the hair gel soon, stay tuned.

How I Achieve A Heatless Blowout

Hey Hunnibees (=
I loooove doing hair posts, maybe this will become a weekly thing since i'm always trying something new whether it be a style or product.

This post is going to be on no heat blowouts,
this is my favorite method for quick stretching of natural hair and maybe it'll be yours soon as well.

What I Did:
1. Washed my hair with ORS HAIRepair Invigorating Shampoo
2. Conditioned with Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist
3. Applied Cantu Shea Butter Leave In on soaking wet hair
4. Coated hair with Vatika Coconut Oil ( I love this oil but I will be finding another coconut oil to replace it)
5. Sectioned off hair while in shower and twisted it
6. Let hair dry while wrapped in t-shirt
7. When hair is still damp its time to blow dry(I have a blowdryer with a cold setting, if you don't use your coolshot button and use a heat protectant.)
8. Mid way through blow drying I apply Carols Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey which makes their hair more smooth and set.
9. Optional- twist while blowdrying for soft, silky twistout.


Note: Tangle Teezers work great for heatless blowdrying, if you want your hair to be smoother follow up with a denman or paddle brush.

The Outcome:

No styling

Light Styling


What's your favorite? Have you ever used this method on your hair? I love the versatility of natural hair (:

Canvas HQ Review

Hey Hunnibees!
If you know me you know I love drawing whether it be by hand or by digital pen.
Lately I've had the chance to review a company called Canvas HQ's high quality digital prints
I chose one of my old digital pieces and it came out beautifully, vibrant and rich (=

The company also has great customer service and makes it more personal. I highly recommend their services whether you want your art work, family pictures, or wall art to add a spice to your room displayed.

Wash Day (=

Hey hunnibees!
Personal post time, awwww yeah (=

I'm trying to shorten wash day more and more and have nailed two key products that are essential to just that.
These two products are

As I Am Cleansing Pudding: OMG, I've been using this for awhile now and it is love! Such an effective cleaner and it doesn't leave my hair stripped (=
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle MOIST: This is what changed the whole game, this makes detangling a breeze. I'm going back for a million and the regular conditioner as well. <3

Sidenote: I use coconut oil to detangle as well.

If I ever feel like I have buildup from this and that the cleansing pudding wont be strong enough I use ORS Hairepair Invigorating Shampoo which cleanses without drying.

My hair brushed out post wash (I cant wait until all of my curls get to shoulder length)

Where do I go from there?
Twists, lots of them (if im not lazy or in a rush lol) I part my hair in 4 sections and do 5 twists for each section with cantu leave in and coconut oil andddd tadahhhh

A cute, shiny, defined twistout that I can wear for 2 weeks plus ( Because who on #teamthickhair wants to wash their hair every couple of days? Nononono)

Happy Wash Days, let the odds be ever in your favor!

Protege Active Review

Hey all, i'm back with another review (=

This is something I was initially excited about since I have dark spots leftover from acne.

It has plenty of benefits, such as stated:

A+CTIVE is a Premium Serum Developed to Hydrate, Nourish, Smooth & Protect Against Signs of Aging
Wrinkles & Fine Lines Reduced: 
Specially Formulated with Vitamin A, Collagen and Coconut Endosperm which Work Synergistically to Smooth Out Difficult Age Indicators Through Cell Turnover While Restoring Elasticity Bring Back Youthful Looking and Feeling Skin!

Healthier Skin: A+CTIVE is Enriched with Sea Kelp Bioferment to Nourish & Hyaluronic Acid with Sodium PCA Ensures Skin is Moisturized
See Your Skin Glowing!

Protection: The Unique Combination of Porphyridium, Fucoxanthin and Guaizulene Provides a Barrier Against Harmful Stimuli and Acts as an Antioxidant
Diminish Wrinkles and Keep them Away!

This all seemed great and would have been great for me if I still wasn't going through acne! This was one of the products I received from Tomoson that would be my last risky move on a facial product. The cell turnover you get from this product is great but the purging was too much for me and just gave me more scarring. 

I would recommend this for those with little to no acne and if you have acne make sure to do it for a period where you know you wont be going out much because you WILL break out.

Great product, just not for my skintype.

Adovia Facial Sea Salts Thoughts

Hey hunnibees,
I've been a busy bee lately just trying to get everything together.
I need a compacted schedule so I can manage everything, hopefully that helps.

Anyways on to these facial salts by one of my favorite facial product brands, Adovia.
I'm away at the moment so will take personal pictures at a later time, but this is the product (=
I thought this would be awesome for dead skin and to get that quick glow, but sadly my face wasn't liking it much, it gave me a glow but was stingy- this is possibly a problem with a mix of products I use so I wont blame it on the salts.

I do recommend mixing this with a creamy cleanser or mask instead of just taking the salt to your bare face, for now I have been using it as a body scrub and it works amazingly (=, so I def would say if you want to make your own body scrub or use this on its own it would be great.
