My Shower Scene
Pacifica Natural Bodycare is a vegan friendly brand! I actually came across this brand by a beauty guru on #YouTube by the name of SunKissAlba (who is also vegan & uses allnatural brands). The scent that I've stuck with is Tuscan Blood Orange. This body butter has notes of red raspberry and Italian mandarins. It is very moisturizing and the smell does linger all day. I also have the roll on perfume, but using this body butter alone provides enough scent to last throughout the day. I have been using this brand for about a year now. Highly recommend! Especially if you opt for all natural products.
I know what you're thinking..."Serum as a foundation?!" Yes, it is a serum. Sort of. I picked this up at #Ulta after being matched by one the consultants. You only need one-two drops of this stuff- no, seriously! I have normal-to-oily skin. So wearing this foundation does not always go well with my skin type. It can make my face appear VERY oily/greasy if I do not set it with a powder. But I do recommend this product to a dry-to-normal skin type. I use this occasionally....but it is not my first pick.
So, I ran out of my Alba facial scrub. I decided to give Shea Moisture a chance since I LOVE their hair products. I picked up the African Black Soap Facial Scrub at #Target. I applied it in the shower (applying face products in the shower is very beneficial since the steam opens up your pores) and rinsed with warm water. My skin instantly felt soft! Not too keen on the smell, but the smell fades. I followed up with a toner and moisturizer. I've been using it for about a month....so far, so good. Up next, is the Curl Enhancing Smoothie-also by Shea Moisture.
I have been using the smoothie for about three months. First off, I did not like it! But, I found out I was not using it right. It works best for me on slightly damp hair for a moisturizer. The smell is heavenly- and it does linger!
