Real Purity Skincare Line First Look



Hey Guys!!

So I am here with quick review & demo of some new products I received from Real Purity.

They offer a wide variety of All Natural products for hair, skin, and makeup. But today I will be focusing only on the skincare line they offer. I received a few products from the line and wanted to share them with you guys.

First up is the Cleansing Facial Gel. With only 5 ingredients, it will restore your skin’s pH balance and leave no oily residue behind. Which I must say is very impressive. For me, this is a very different cleanser for me. Mainly because it did not suds up as most of my other cleansers do (as you will see below), however, my skin felt super clean, so no complaint here.

Now the Daily Facial Scrub is one of my favorites. Mainly because it has one of my favorite natural anti-again & evening skin tone agents in it… GRAPEFRUIT!! Now if you guys have been following me you know I love grapefruit and the effects it has on your skin. And now that I have this scrub it is perfect to add to my current skincare routine. And FYI I only use scrubs when I am going to be makeup, which ends up being about 2-3 times a week. It is a perfect way to remove any dead skin or dry patches so your foundation doesn’t settle into those areas.

After all that cleaning and scrubbing it’s time to tone. The toner I used is the Green Tea Toner. This was my first time trying out a “tea-style” of toner. This formula is meant to restore the natural pH of your skin by controlling oil production. Which I definitely need with my oily combination skin type. I was very impressed with the results of this. My skin felt very smooth and refreshed, and had no excess dirt.




Now to moisturizer is used the Daily Balancing Facial Cream. This one is my absolute FAVORITE out of everything. This moisturizer went on soo smooth. It is formulated for normal to oily skin, that balances oil control with light skin hydration. The finished felt very matte and not oily at all. Personally, I felt it helped with my pores as well, PERFECT for using under foundation.

Lastly, I tried the Papaya Facial Mask. (not shown in video) I choose to use this one because at the time I was having some breaks outs and felt like my skin need a little extra care. Papaya extract acts as a natural exfoliant as it gently dissolves dead skin cells. I left on for 20mintues as recommended. It has kind of a mud mask feel but was very easy to rinse off, leaving my skin feeling super soft. I would only recommend this one if you are going through a breakout, other than that it is not really necessary for regualr use.

I have yet to try the Green Apple Mask or the Acne Soap but I will keep you guys updated as I try those out.

Definitely, check out the video below for the unboxing & Demo to see a few of these products in action.

Deva Curl Buildup Buster Launch Event {+Giveaway}

DevaCurl launched a new product called

Buildup Buster!

So mad I wasn’t in the picture, but I left a little early

Like most of their exciting launches they had an awesome launch party in Manhattan, & y’all know I love me some NYC, plus I was invited, so I definitely had to show up! After arriving I was quickly filled in about what this product! Bottom-line…is is a Micellar Cleansing Serum…LOL Easy right??? Don’t worry I’ll break it down for you.

Miceller Water has been used in skincare before so that is nothing new, but what is new is that DevaCurl somehow figured out a way to incorporate this into a hair care product, the first of its kind! Yes, DevaCurl is THE 1st to do this! The Micellar Water in the Buildup Buster “attracts dirt like a magnet” to remove build up from the hair & scalp. It also contains Abyssinian Seed Oil & Jojoba which delivers moisture, shine & snaps your curls back into shape.


Now I know Abyssinian Oil maybe new to some of you, so without getting to detailed & long winded & chemist-like, Abyssinian oil is often compared to jojoba oil but it is much higher in erucic acid & means a stronger, intense moisturizer for your hair. It is a very stable & long-lasting seed oil that rapidly penetrates the outer layer of the epidermis, & because it is often compared to jojoba oil (meaning it mimics human sebum), it is very silky in texture & makes for a great natural alternative to silicones in haircare products With the erucic acid your hair gets a strong layer of protection against dehydration. Sounds Amazing Right?

Now back to the Buildup Buster This is a product meant to be used once weekly (or as needed), replacing your regular shampoo or co-wash for a deeper clean. So it is not “made” to be used as a pre-poo as I originally thought. But you know us naturals we always got to “test the waters” (no pun intended) so don’t be surprised if I end up trying this as a per-poo as well.

And, just like all DevaCurl products, Buildup Buster is sulfate-free, silicone-free & paraben-free.

Check out my first look of the Build Buster in the video below, which I am also hosting a GIVEAWAY for one of my lucky readers/subscribers to win your very own bottle of the DevaCurl Buildup Buster. Click HERE to enter the giveaway!

Relationships & Sex

Signs That You Don’t Want to Be Happy…


  • You keep becoming involved with emotionally unavailable men.
  • You keep taking on the role of being The Side Chick, The Other Woman, or whatever the kids are calling it these days. LOL
  • You go out with the Ass Hole Or the “Bad Boy” because you think they are more exciting.
  • You keep dating the same ‘type’ that makes you feel miserable and sometimes less than.
  • You meet a, “nice guy” who wants to treat you right and invest time in you and you say they are “Too Nice” or claim that it must be a front.
  • You want to be in a steady, committed relationship but keep sleeping around or being used sexually by guys, which eventually just breaks down your self esteem even more, which in return stops you from getting the relationship you may want (and deserve).
  • You get the opportunity to break up with the guy that is mistreating you, but you eventually take him back because you don’t value yourself enough and think it’s better to be with him, than starting all over.
  • You truly believe that it’s better to settle with anybody, than be alone.
