How I Maintain My Natural Hair For Months With Less Than 7000 Naira

 I started my natural hair journey using only sheamoisture products and NOW oils. This was because most of the Naturalistas I was following at that time used these products. They had only positive reviews too. I honestly didn’t know affordable hair routines like how I maintain my natural hair with less now.  Those hair products have been great on my hair so far but in this Nigeria’s current recession, I can’t afford to use sheamoisture and NOW oil products exclusively or I’ll be spending tens of thousands just for natural hair products alone.   Seeing more natural hair products and brands readily …

My Current 2017 Korean Skincare Routine For Combination Skin

 I’ve talked about Korean skincare products a lot on this blog that it’s no longer news to you how much I enjoy using them. This post is about my current Korean skincare routine for combination skin as that’s what I have.  I used to think I had oily skin on my face, I even bought Korean products for oily skin. Subsequently, I’ve realized that not all parts of my face get oily, some parts remain dry/normal while other parts can get really oily. Maybe my skin type changed from oily to combination.  I believe sticking with Korean products for combination skin …

Amali Cosmetics Gel & Lacquer Collection Launch

  On February 26, 2017, I attended Amali cosmetics gel & lacquer collection launch at the nail bar on 26 Monrovia street off Aminu Kano crescent, Wuse 2 Abuja.  I got to know about the launch via a photographer’s Instagram post. Having worked with his team few months ago, it felt good meeting them again. Networking is my best bet to settle in as a blogger in this new city.  I didn’t know much about the brand or what to expect but I went for the launch anyways.

Cosrx Aha/Bha Clarifying Treatment Toner Review

  On one of my skincare research days, I read about how one could get better results while using actives like AHA, BHA, etc if clarifying toners are used first. Due to my experience with the Cosrx snail cream and Cosrx BHA power liquid, I decided to try the Cosrx Aha/Bha clarifying treatment toner.   Furthermore, I read in another article that it’s best to use vitamin c on bare skin after cleansing before using any other product because of its highly unstable nature. If you remember I use Ost vitamin C serum, the only active I currently use. I wasn’t …
