I am NOT a Product Junkie

It's been a hot minute, but I do want to provide a quick prequel to an upcoming post.

My Jessner peel turned out marvelously and I'm looking forward to my next treatment. So far, I am virtually blemish-free, but I still have a few things to get rid of. As a reward to myself, I switched to another cosmetic line-MAC. I was skeptical about the coverage, but their powder and concealer are more than doing their job. I can actually see my face underneath my makeup and I love it! Fortunately, I've found a cheap source for some of the things I want.

As for the hair, I'm on week two of wearing my fave style, the bantu knot-out. I can't believe it's lasting this long without doing anything to it, but it is. So, if you want to know my secret, drop me a line!

And, if any of you are tried-and-true product junkies, you are very well aware of all the holiday sales. As a result, I've coveted the following:
  • LUSH's H'suan Wen Hua (not on sale but they also gave me a sample of their Reincarnate solid shampoo with henna bar)
  • Hamadi's Ginger Soymilk Hairwash (with a handful of Shea Hair Cream and Shea Leave-in samples)
  • Tropic Isle Living's Black Castor Oil Protein Conditioner and my usual bottle of JBCO
  • Dr Adorable Inc's 12 oz. bottles of sweet almond, jojoba and avocado oils
With a little time off during the holiday, I also took the time to clean out my "hair closet." Much to my surprise, I found five shampoo bars from Chagrin Valley Soap and Anita Grant Rhassoul Deep Condish blocks I'd totally forgotten about. Who says Christmas in July doesn't exist?


  1. I love bantu -knots!..I bet it looks fabulous on you!:))

    Take care,


  2. Thanks! Of everything I've tried, this is definitely the one for me!
