Knappy Hair Extensions Initial Install (feat. Kinky Coarse 18″ Clip-Ins)


HairExtensions Install

Hey guys!!

So I got the opportunity to try out some hair extensions from Knappy Hair Extensions. I’ve never used clip-ins before so I was excited to see how I would use these.

To start off this set came with 9 clip ins:

  • 4 – with 2 clips
  • 2 – with 3 clips
  • 2 – with 4 clips
  • 1 –  with 5 clips

The set also came with 2 additional clips you can sew-in, if additional support is needed, weft sealer (which I did seal the wefts) and care instructions.

I decided to use these clip-ins and install them all over my entire head, and have a little bit of leave out. and this worked out great. The style that I got was the Kinky Coarse 18″. Which was perfect. because it was just as long as my natural hair, so it was believable and not exaggerated, as you can see from the picture below.

 

Being that this is the first time I’ve used clip-ins, I was pleasantly surprised. If you want to see how I installed these clip ins, make sue to check our the video HERE.

Go check out these website for KRS Hair group: https://fbit.co/2ENl. They also offer wefts that you can sew-in, as well as closures, so you are bound to find something that suits what you are looking for.

Shielo Smoothing Anti Aging Scrub Review


Hey Guys!!

I’ve never to so excited about a skincare review…LOL But I am back with another quick review on the Shielo Smoothing Anti Again Scrub. I’ve used a lot of Shielo products over the years, they actually have my favorite moisturizer, which I did A review on back in 2014 (CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT REVIEW).

complexionscrub_2

Not this scrub did not disappoint AT ALL, and to be honest I didn’t expect it to. Shielo has always had great quality products. This anti-aging scrub is a clarifying exfoliant for all skin types (FYI, I have Oily Combination Skin). It has Aloe Vera Juice, which refreshes the skin. It also feature Jojoba Oil whcih contain fatty acid that revitalize skin using microspheres which are small and delicate. This is the main thing I look for in scrubs. I don’t like very large bead because they are too harsh and rough on my skin

This has quickly become my new favorite facial scrub to use before I apply makeup. It makes my skin very smooth and I feel refresh when I use it, which is the perfect condition for my skin when I want to apply makeup.

This Product retails for: $22.99

Sheilo Leave In Protectant Review


HEY GUYS!!

So I am back with anther review from Shielo!!

This time it is on there Leave In Spray Protectant. I’ve actually used this product in the past and just revisited it recently.

For me this is mainly to protect my a=hair during heat styling. It is a really amazing spray to use when I want a very light and fluffy blow out, and won’t weigh down my hair like creamier products tend to do.

I also like using this spray when I am doing some kind of roller set, where I sit under a hooded dryer. It offers up a nice shine while protecting my strands.

Here are the products claims: This antioxidant rich leave in protectant is designed to fortify every strand of hair, creating texture, as well as protect your hair from the stress of heat styling. Our unique protective complex with pro-vitamins, proteins and amino acids infuse hair with vitamins while providing UV protection. For deeper natural and color-treated hair color. Excellent in controlling frizz and detangling.

Which I must agree it does fully live up to their claims.

If you are looking for other uses for this products besides heat styling, I would recommend spray on your hair before going out in the summer to protect your hair from the UV rays, especially if you have color treated hair.

If you interested in trying this product out make sure you check out the Shielo website.

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.

IMG_0194Retouch

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.

IMG_0200Retouch

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 .
