GlassesShop.com Review


Hey guys!!!

So I am back with another quick review. Today I will be reviewing a site called GlassesShop.com. This site offers prescription eyeglasses. I picked up a pair of their  sunglasses. Which I LOVE!They offer several different styles and they are available for both men and women.

This is a great site to get cheap glasses . The also have a big campaign going on right now where you can get your first pair free (Just pay for shipping & handling).

Also keep in mid you can also get prescription sunglasses. This was actually big plus for me, because before I got my PRK Surgery (Lasik), It was so expensive to get prescription lenses (or lenses in general), so I glad that there were inexpensive options for eyeglass and sunglasses. Fernando will definitely be taking advantage of this site.

And you guys know I can’t leave you with out a coupon code. Use Coupon Code GSHOT50 and you can get 50%off on eyeglasses or sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames are excluded from coupon). That is a great DEAL!!!!

So that’s it guys! Make sure to go check out the site!  The have glasses for everyone and every style you can think of. Don’t forget to tell them who sent you!

Citrus Clear Review


image

Hey guys!! I am back with another review for the Citrus Clear Line. I’ve reviewed their products before, so it is a brand I am VERY familiar with the line. So let me jut jump right into the review.

I am going to start with the Natural Tahitian Lime Sensitive Wash. I used this was before in the past, and I LOVE it. the smell is so potent but in a good way. The lime scent is so divine. I like How my skin feels very smooth but not stripped.

The next item is the Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatment. Now I know grapefruit is rich with antioxidants and vitamins, so was very excited to try this out. Now I don’t frequent breakouts, but when I do I like to have a spot treatment on hand. This one is actually really nice. It dries up my pimples really fast which makes it a lot quicker for them to go away.

The Tangerine Tingle is a 2 for 1. You can either use it as an exfoliating cleanser or as a mask. I used it both ways. As a cleanser, its great, it is  exfoliating so it is stripping, but it is expected. As a mask, it wasn’t ok. It is more of a hydrating mask if you do it while you are in the shower, so it really helps open up you pores and get deep into the skin. Did I forget to mention the smell?? Well, it is bomb.com! Out of everything this one smells THE BEST!

Now I love a good mask and the Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask is EVERYTHING! This is a DEEP mask, so I would not recommend doing it the day or week of a special event or wedding, because this literally pushes everything that is deep in the skin to the surface. So I will caution you on that part. The smell isn’t amazing, but it performs as it says.

Lastly is the Pink Grapefruit Sensitive Moisturizer. I have been enjoying this one. It is very lightweight so it is great under makeup. Even though it is lightweight it’s still moisturizing. Grapefruit is also high in Vitamin C and has anti-aging properties so it has amazing benefits as well.

Overall, Citrus Clear has yet to disappoint and this review is no different. The products are great and the price point comparable to other lines. Their line is free from harsh chemicals. Please make sure to check out Citrus Clear for some amazing natural skin care products .

KenChar Line Review


HEY GUYS!!! SO I am finally back with another review. I haven’t done a review on my blog in a long tim, but I am back and I am VERY excited about this review.

Today I will be reviewing a line from a line called KenChar. So Let’s Jump Right into it.

So let’s start with the Soy Candles!

Candles

This was the 1st thing I’ve ever purchase from them. They are 100% Natural. These are considered their candles. So they are great on go if you are looking for a something to take with you when traveling. They have a wide variety of scents and I tell you NO lie…they smell EXACTLY how the label says AND once it’s lit it smells exactly how it does in the tin. The fragrance can fill the entire room so you don’t need multiple candle to scent one space. These are my absolute favorite candles I’ve ever purchased. My Personal Favorites are: Strawberry & Southern Peach.

Body

 

I was sent A few of their body products, The Coconut Lime Hand Whipped Body Butter, Coconut Flakes Scrub and the Island Body Sunflower and Shea Body Cream. The Coconut Flake Scrub is AMAZING! It creates a really nice “milky” kinda of lather and make it really feel Spa like. It beads that they used are very fine, so it is very gentle on the skin. I’ve only used one other scrub in the past and this one is just so different in texture and the consistency is something I’ve never seen in a scrub before. This is definitely something I HIGHLY recommend.  The Coconut Lime Whipped Body Butter is amazing! I is very moisturizing and kept my skin smooth all day. It also gave my skin a nice little “glow,” which I was really surprised about, something different. I wasn’t a really body butter lover in the past because I felt they were just TOO greasy. BUT, this one wasn’t, it absorbed right into my skin without sticking out to my clothes. Another thing I want to mention is the Shea Scents pocket-sized butter tins (not pictured). These are great to carry in your bag to re-moisturize your hands or body. I also used this to add moisture to my hair as well. Lastly, The Island Body Sunflower & Shea Body Cream it is a lighter texture so it still moisturizes very well, but not over whelming. The scent is more of a floral, unlike the Coconut Lime, which is more or an herbal/fruity scent.

Now One to the most exciting things that I was scent….THE HAIR PRODUCTS!!! Now I have been buying KenChar candles for the past 2-3 years…and I NEVER knew they sold hair products.

Hair

First thing I tried was the Curly Roots Coconut Conditioning Cream. At first when I looked at it, I thought it was a styler of some sort. But, after reading the label It says I can use a regular rinse-out conditioner, a deep conditioner or even a leave-in. So I tried it out ALL 3 three ways, on 3 separate occasions. YES, this 3oz container got at least 3 good uses out of it. Personally, I preferred it as a leave-in or a rinse out conditioner. It worked OK as a deep conditioner, but I did doctor it up with some oils because I needed ALOT of moisture. But as a leave-in it left my hair super soft and left a really nice sheen to my hair. The Butter Curls Moisturizing Styling Butter was my favorite. I use as a styler for twists outs & braid outs. This stuff is amazing! The smell is nothing “special” like all the other ones, but it doesn’t smell bad at all. It performed really well and gave a great hold and really nice shine. My hair was soft fluffy and silky. Even when Fernando touched my hair I used this, he was like , “O, babe what you use, your hair feels really soft.” So this Styling is everything! LOL Lastly is the Curly Roots Conditioning Pomade is a really nice pomade I use to take down my twist/braids and I also used it to seal my ends. It not heavy and does not leave my hair feeling greasy so that is a PLUS!

 

Overall, I enjoyed the entire line. I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve reviewed a line and have NOTHING negative to say. Everything performed better than expected and to top if off everything is competitively priced with everything else that is out there. And honestly why not spend that money on an ALL natural, black owned business line. Definitely check out their site at, www.kencharbody.com and click the sop tab! You will NOT be disappointed at all. And if you are ever at a Circle of Sisters Expo or anything like that check to see if she has a table, most of the time she probably will, but for sure at Circle of Sisters, which is by the way coming up October 2015.

Review: Bargain Argan Oil [+Giveaway]



Hey Guys!! So I am back with another review!!

Today I going to be reviewing Bargain Argan Oil! I was pretty anxious when I received this item because I’ve never used Aragn Oil before but I always heard great things. At first I planned on using it in my hair, but once I received it and used got a list of all the things I can do with it, I decided to use it on my skin and nails! Which was amazing!

I started applying this on my nail bed consistently every night before bed. My cuticles have always been on of my issues because I use to be an avid nail bitter. so my cuticles have always stayed dray and hard, even though it’s been YEARS since I’ve stopped biting my nails. But I am telling you, after about a week of using this stuff I notice my cuticles getting soft and staying moisturized.

Argan Oil

Now as far as my skin goes, I’ve been using in ONE drop in my moisturizer. Since my skin is Oily I didn’t want to do too much. But I did notice that my skin stayed moisturized and more radiant.

This stuff is awesome and very inexpensive compared to the other kinds of Argan Oil it retails for a 2oz. bottle for $12.49. I’ve been using this size for about a month and I’ve barely gotten through half yet. So a little does go a long way. It comes it a twist up pointed knob, which make for easy application and less mess.

The customer service is great as well. They answered any questions that I had in a timely manner. So that was a great plus as well.

Over all, I think this is a great way company if you are not too sure about Argan Oil and give it a try. I plan on trying this out on my hair in the upcoming months. I will make sure to do an update when I do.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

It’s like Pintrest with a Check Out cart…LOL But I really wanted to come and show you guys a few some things I really like from the line.

This Nin Jumpsuit is just simple and classic, and paired with the Kent Slip On and Sunnies makes it so My style. Simple, Chic & Casual.

Both the Florent Backpack and the Half Moon Bag  are perfect for traveling, walking around the mall, or the in the city. With my hands free to carry all my shopping bags I won’t have to worry about my handbag weighing and slowing me down me down. You’All know how we get once we start shopping!
