Im carrying these in 2020 with me like that woman climbing the steps every end of year LOL!
I dont spend much on beauty products, since I like to use up what I have first and then indulge after. Therefore, my list is short and sweet.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!
🥁 🥁 🥁 🥁 🥁 🥁 🥁 🥁
In no particular order, my favorite beauty products of 2019:
Etude House - My Lash Serum
Hannah of Product Junkie gifted this to me some months ago and she told me it helped improve her lashes. I started using it, forgot about it and started using more routinely on my eyebrows.
This serum has grown my brows out to the point there was one sticking straight out my face ready to stab someone!
My brows are thicker now than they were when the year began. Im sorry I dont have comparison pictures and I have reason to fool you. My Lash Serum is definetly a must have-get now!
Freeman Beauty Hydrating Glacier Water + Pink Peony Gel Cream Mask
Once upon a time I tried a sample of The Creme Shop's Snail Repair sleeping mask and it worked. I couldnt afford the full size so I turned to my favorite skin line, Freeman Beauty and TADA!! The product in the caption (too long to type sis) was available and I am not disappointed one bit!
I use this under my makeup and before I go to bed at night. It leaves my skin radiant, pores are less noticeable and if I do get a pimple, it help reduce it while I sleep as compared to if I didnt. This tube is going to last me forever (not really) because all you need is a pea sized amount, which spreads like warm butter.
I really does what it says.
Curl Confidence - Slip Slip Slide
When Coryse reached out to me to try this product, locs were in dire need of some sort of hydration product that didnt cause build up in my locs. From the moment I felt the texture, I knew this was what my hair needed. Slip Slip Slide is a light weight formula (with no glycerin yay!) That gives my hair shine and hydration. Defflleee a favourite!
Island Boy Organics - Orange Coffee Cake Sugar Body Scrub
I dont like coffee...BUT, I like this because the coffee and sugar grains are very tiny so they exfolitate better. Even though this is a body scrub, I use it on my lips to remove dead skin and it does a great job. That avocado and grapeseed oil sure does add moisture and smoothness to my lips!
Well Shaina, why you dont use it on your body?
Truth be told it is a terror to clean up after a shower. The coffee get everywhere and its not just this product but any body scrub that has coffee.
Afro Love 'Minty' Shampoo
Enriched with mint Eucalyptus and rosemary this is the shampoo that gives your hair a deep clean while tingling the scalp.
Gosh I love this shampoo!! It just has your scalp feeling like you stuck your head in peppermint juice!
Well almost LOL
After I used this the first time my scalp feeled really clean with that added fresh feeling. Definetly my favorite shampoo product of 2019.
Happy Girls Happy Curls Hydrating Leave in Lotion
Maaaannnnn I love this stuff so much! Currently on my second bottle but my first love is the scent 'Vanilla & Me'. I like to use this lotion after I wash my hair and when I need a light moisture boost to start the day. No build up in my locs and no gylcerin? Sis!!!
Aviaire Body TT - Vanilla Sandalwood Body Oil
My sister first put me on to Aviaire Body a year and a half ago. This year I got me a bottle and it is my favorite oil thus far! It smells amazing and as the oil does down, the scent gets more potent (most likely cuz of soaking time). Filled with nothing but natural ingedients, it smoothly absorbs into the skin and adds nourishment. When wearing this you dont need any perfume at all; this is all you need.
The Face Shop - Herb Day Cleansing Cream
Taking off my makeup has never been better! No need to over use your makeup wipes ma'am, this product is all you ever need...well, plus a makeup removing cloth. I bought this makeup remover from Hannah aka Product Junkie, after the one I received in the monthly box was on 'E'.
This cleanser lifts the makeup when you rub it on your face. It is perfect for removing waterproof eye makeup and lipstick. Get your self a makeup remover cloth to wipe it all off, then cleanse with your facial wash.
Good stuff and I need more :P
La Girl Cosmetics -Shockewave Neon Liner - Black
If you ever feel the need to cry in the pouring rain with makeup on, Best believe, this eyeliner will comfort you through that bad break-up.
If a liner ever said it was waterproof, THIS IS!!!
Once this liner sets, it stays all day long! Best of all it is the blackest black you may ever come across in an affordable liner.
Absolute NY Products - Supreme Slim Demi Matte lipstick
Aint demi about this lipstick cuz this is FULL MATTE! I never thought that I would be this in love with a matte lipstick before. I dont know what magic forumla Absolute put in this, but my Gawwd it applies so creamy with out a stutter and last the day though! Even when you eat it will still be there! I deflee reached for this shade many times since I bought it. Took up residence in my hand bag.
