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 …

Biotulin Organic Botox Gel is Michelle Obama’s Beauty Secret

 Michelle Obama doesn’t look to have aged a day despite spending eight years navigating the tricky waters of the White House and supporting arguably the most powerful man in the world. Now the secret behind the 52-year-old’s youthful look has been revealed as Biotulin non-injectable organic Botox gel.  Her fresh face is apparently thanks to this £43 ($54) Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel recommended to her by Kate – the Duchess of Cambridge as revealed by her (Michelle Obama) make-up artist Carl Ray.  Carl told Celebrities Style that the Biotulin organic Botox gel is ‘unbelievable’ for erasing wrinkles. According to him, Michelle Obama has …

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 …

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask Review

  Elizavecca milky piggy carbonated bubble clay mask is one mask I’ve known since i started my Korean skincare journey in 2014 but just never tried it till now. I read about the bubble effect on the face from other Korean skincare and beauty bloggers and only wondered what they meant.   I decided to skip my holy grail mask again after testing the skinfood rice mask to try the Elizavecca milky piggy carbonated bubble clay mask as they were same sale price. The name is so funny as with other ridiculous Korean beauty product names. Who names a product milky piggy carbonated bubble …

Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream Review

  I used the Cosrx advanced snail 92 all in one cream for the first time at the end of spring 2016. The weather was just getting warmer then and i needed a lightweight moisturizer for my combination skin. After the success of my Cosrx ultimate nourishing rice overnight spa mask and my experience with snail filtrate starting from my Benton snail bee high content essence, i knew my skin loved snails. Since i was already in love with Cosrx and looking for a suitable day moisturizer, i decided to try their advanced snail 92 all in one cream.   This snail …

Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch Review

  I thought of posting this Cosrx acne pimple master patch review earlier and somehow forgot about it. Have you ever used a patch on your pimples before? Me neither….till i discovered the Cosrx acne pimple patches. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a pimple patch.  Over the years I struggled with keeping my acne under control. This wouldn’t be new to you if you are a regular reader of my blog. Acne is most likely the top skin concern of many young people.   If you’ve ever had an event you’ve been looking forward to, only to …

OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum Review

  If you haven’t heard about Vitamin C serums or benefits of Vitamin C on skin, then you must be living under a rock. One of the most popular vitamin C serums for face is the OST original pure vitamin C20 serum. It’s more popular among Korean skincare users as it’s one of the most popular and widely used vitamin C serums.   There are a lot of vitamin C serums for face made by other brands besides the Korean versions. Some popular ones non-Korean skincare enthusiasts use are Paula’s Choice Resist C15 Super Booster, Kiehl’s powerful-strength line-reducing concentrate, Algenist genuis ultimate …

Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid Review

  The Cosrx BHA blackhead power liquid was part of my updated 2016 Korean skincare products. I read so many reviews about this korean blackhead product but because some of them were mixed, i decided to try it out myself. I don’t suffer from noticeable blackheads but i wanted other effects of BHA.   Cosrx is one Korean skincare brand i noticed out of the blues. As at the time i started this Korean skincare journey, i never saw or heard about any cosrx product. Fast-forward to 2016, Cosrx is on every Korean beauty enthusiast’s lips and even available on Urban Outfitters and …

Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask Review

  This cosrx ultimate nourishing rice overnight spa mask from my 2016 updated face care routine is currently the best Korean sleeping mask I’ve used in the 2 years that I’ve been using Korean skincare products (I haven’t used a lot of sleeping masks though, just about 5). It’s the first sleeping mask I’ll be reviewing on the blog because of how much i like using it.  The previous ones I used weren’t completely bad, they just weren’t a fit for my skin that’s all. They were either too light or they were only moisturizing enough for just a few hours …
