Marula Oil Purchase from HauteLook

I made a promise to myself the next time Nature’s Shea Butter was on HauteLook I was going to make a purchase. I’ve had my eye on the Marula oil for quite some time. I am currently using Argan oil as a part of my skincare routine. The Argan oil was a previous Nature’s Shea Butter purchase on HauteLook.

Marula oil is known for being a great skin oil. I have also noticed my skin responds well to natural beauty products. The cold Winter weather will definitely put the Marula oil to the test.

Nature’s Shea Butter Purchase from HauteLook (Beauty Items I Needed)

I have been patiently waiting for a good bit of the Summer for Nature’s Shea Butter to appear on HauteLook again. This time around I stuck to beauty items I actually needed. My package arrived just in time for the start of Fall. I was also out of the White Tea & Shea Anti-Aging Facial Cream.

HauteLook Nature2                       The White Tea & Shea Anti-Aging Cream is a great moisturizer. My youngest daughter also uses this. Maybe I should have bought two.

HauteLook Nature3                                                                                     I make it a point to use the 100% All Natural Organic Argan Oil at night. I will also use the argan oil under my moisturizer when the weather gets cold. I feel like I have an extra layer of protection for my skin.

I do plan on placing another order the next time Nature’s Shea Butter is on HauteLook. 🙂

Natural Products Purchase from Coastal Scents

Coastal Scents                                                  Coastal Scents recently had a sale on all of their natural products. I was really low on shea butter and black soap. These two items have been my trusted beauty must haves.

Coastal Scents 3                                                                            The Liquid Black Soap has always intrigued me. It’s worth a try.

Coastal Scents 2

  • Moisturizing Black Soap with Cocoa Butter
  • Moisturizing Black Soap with Shea Butter – Unscented

Coastal Scents 4                         I’ve already used the regular black soap from Coastal Scents. I will be trying these out in my skincare routine.

Coastal Scents 6                            I don’t like the way my skin feels when I used regular lotion. This was definitely a much needed purchase. 🙂

Most Recent MAC Purchase from Macy’s

MAC Skin Finish

I had $10 in Macy’s money I really wanted to use. It’s very rare I buy something from the MAC counter I actually need. LOL! Any other time I’m buying something based on impulse. This time around I purchased the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder. I use this as a setting powder. I like the coverage since it looks so natural on me.

Natural Products Purchase from Coastal Scents

Coastal Scents had an Earth Day sale. This sale lasted for a week. All of their natural products were 35% off. This included their soaps, butter, oils, and essential oils.


Since I’ve already been using the shea oil on my hair, it seemed logical to order another bottle.


I also ordered more of the shea butter. My daughters have also been using shea butter. Winter was very hard on my oldest daughter’s skin. Regular lotion wasn’t working. I gave her some shea butter to try. She no longer has dry patches on her skin. My youngest daughter had burned her hand a little using a curling iron. I told her to try some shea butter since this was a minor burn. The shea butter worked on that as well.




I ordered the cocoa butter because it was on sale too.


I was also given a sample of the black soap. I’ve read great reviews about this soap and can’t wait to try it.


CVS Haul: Featuring SheaMoisture

This week SheaMoisture products were buy one get one free. Hair care and baby products were included in this sale. This is actually the second time I have purchased SheaMoisture hair care products. The first time was for my oldest. The African Black Soap shampoo and conditioner worked wonders in soothing her dry scalp. I also purchased the Yucca & Baobab Anti-Breakage Masque. She said the mask made her hair soft and easy to detangle.

This time it was my turn to buy SheaMoisture for myself. I have made a serious effort this year to take better care of my hair. In the past my hair would get extremely dry during the Winter months and break off. I know Shea Moisture is very popular in the natural hair care community. I was already in the process of making changes to my hair routine. With SheaMoisture being buy one get one free I knew I had to take advantage of such a great deal.



My hair isn’t damaged, but I’m trying to prevent it from drying out.


I don’t consider myself as having fine or thin hair. This was the only hair masque type conditioner that was left at the CVS I visited.



Figured I’d try the Curl Enhancing Smoothie on my twist outs and bantu knot outs.
