Last November I attended the launch of Beautiful Textures Intense Moisture, a new hairline geared toward mixed hair types (curly, kinky, wavy, frizzy). I answered a question correctly and won the entire hair care collection. This review will focus on the Moisture Butter since it is the product that I have used the most and can write an honest review about.

At the Beautiful Textures Launch the focus was mainly on the importance of keeping your hair moisturized. My hair was color treated and began breaking off because of the lack of moisture. It was very dry and brittle. So when I received the product I was excited to see if I could nurse my hair back to a healthier state.

My Thoughts

I really like the Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter. It does exactly what it says that it will do. My hair was colored in the front and broke off really badly from the lack of moisture. I applied a small amount of the the moisture butter and every morning and night sealed with oil and within a month my hair was starting to grow back. After I began this new process I changed my hair regimen which I will share with you at a later time. My roots (new growth) were very manageable and not brittle. My only issue was that if I applied too much my hair began to look limp and lifeless so it definitely use sparingly. After applying it to my nape and my edges I began applying it all over my head. When I applied it at night, I would wake up with such soft hair. I was very impressed. When it was time for a relaxer, I applied the moisture butter to my edges and my edges were tamed and smooth.

Pros

  1. Smell- it has a tropical smell that I really like
  2. Softens hair- my hair was noticeably softer after a few applications
  3. Price $6.99
  4. Smooths out edges.

 Cons

  1. If you apply to much it weighs your hair down
  2. Does not contain all natural products- this was a major concern for me now that I am nursing my hair back to a healthier state and trying to grow my hair out. Natural products are always best. Although many of the main ingredients are natural there is still a considerable amount of non-natural products in the moisture butter.

Scale of 1 to 5- I give this product a 3.8 (random I know lol) If it contained all natural products it would have been rated higher, but it does keep my hair moisturized but it is also a little heavy and weighs the hair down. Other than that it is great.

Beautiful Textures can be purchased online, at your nearest Sally’s Beauty Supply Store or many other local beauty supply stores across the country. Click here for more info.

I hope this was helpful!

I am pretty sure we have all spent countless dollars trying out the latest and “greatest” mascaras to create unbelievably dramatic lashes. Your search may end here with L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lash

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lash ™ Mascara features long and short nylon and rayon fibers, which is the same material used to make false lashes. With theses fibers the lashes appear fuller, longer, sculpted and curled.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara Features (source)
  • Dual-length fiber formula
  • Exclusive polymer adheres fiber to lashes
  • Botanical waxes prevent hardening, crumbling or flaking
  • Precision brush ensures optimal application
  • Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

With just one coat I noticed the dramatic difference in my lashes. The length was incredible and they also appeared fuller. Two coats will provide you with a very dramatic look so I would use one coat for the day and two coats for nice. I wouldn’t use more than three coats. I also loved the packaging. The wand is slightly bent which allows you to get fuller coverage.

One thing that is great is that the formula can be used for those with sensitive eyes or if you wear contacts, which I do on a daily basis. Sometimes a lash may get in our eye and so this formula will not cause any irritation.

Look for this product in your local Walgreens, Walmart or on Amazon

Create the most outrageous false lash look with our newest, most technically advanced volume mascara – Voluminous False Fiber Lashes.  With the power of sculpting fibers this dual fiber mascara wraps each lash to boost, sculpt & volumize building an incredible false lash look.  http://on.fb.me/nYOsG7

I’m going to do a product review for most of the items that I got from my Shecky’s Goody Bag, and there were A LOT of goodies, so hopefully these reviews help. One of the products in the bag was Organics by Noah’s Naturals Body Wash in Coconut Vanilla.

noah

I absolutely love this body wash. The scent is incredible. Most of the time when people hear organic they think the scent is going to be something strong or overbearing like if you walk up to one of the street vendors on Fulton ave. selling the variety of oils. The coconut vanilla scent is sweet, but very subtle. Not only does the body wash smell great, but you get a great lather with a small amount. Some body washes are so diluted that you can use half of the bottle in a matter of days trying to get a good lather on the loofa sponge…smh. Organics by Noah’s Naturals body wash also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. This is before you even apply any type of body lotion.

noah3

The body wash also comes in another scent Rosemary Mint (not sure of how this smells). In both body washes, the natural plant emolients leave the skin feeling smooth an conditioned. They also contain coneflower seed oil and Vitamin E which are both known for their healing properties for dry skin. noah2

The body lotion also comes in coconut vanilla and rosemary mint. The body lotion is a light weight formula that restores moisture and suppleness to dry , tired skin with a unique blend of natural and organic ingredients. The body  lotion contains Vitamin A which improves the skin’s texture, firmness and smoothness, and it also contains Safflower seed oil which replenishes the skin’s moisture.

Both the body wash and lotion retail for about $10.99 each for a 10 oz bottle. It is definitely worth it because your skin will feel AMAZING! Try it out and let me know what you think!

Last week Thursday I attended the Shecky’s Holiday Night Out event. As soon as I stepped through the door, I was spotted by a sales rep for the Enzo Milano company. I have been wearing my hair in waves for the past 2 weeks. Last week my hair was wavy, but I would cornrow my hair at night and apply mousse so the waves would stay. So the sales rep asked me to sit down and gave his lil speal but when he did the demo I was totally sold!! He used the ceramic flat iron and clipless curling iron and I actually purchased both. The curling iron is wonderful!!! I will post a video and pics…after Christmas because I am expecting a camera 🙂 lol but I would recommend this product to anyone. I curled my hair Saturday evening and my curls lasted well into Monday. It curls your hair in a matter of seconds and the great part is that your hair does not burn. I used to hate smelling my hair as I flat ironed it or curled it. You do not need any products and your hair will become shiny and soft. I am not getting paid for this review lol (I wish) but I would suggest you all look into to it.  I would purchase the small or medium size curling iron. With the small iron you can create different size waves and that is limited if you choose a larger iron (depending on hair length). Look out for the video and pics next week!
