Bee Mine Products- A new store opens in Brooklyn

6 May

If you find yourself wandering around Brooklyn in the near future, indulge in a visit to Ecodermis and Wolfberry, as they now sell Bee Mine Products.  If you didn’t know by now, Bee Mine is a wonderful, 100% natural hair product with lovely ingredients such as shea butter, aloe vera, and oh honey the list goes on and on!

In the past, I have ordered the Bee Mine Curly Butter online and I loved it.  The customer service is excellent and the order arrived promptly.  Being as these products are all natural, there are no parabens, sulfates of any kind or harmful chemicals.  It is an absolutely yummy product line and I am ecstatic to see it come to New York.  With the store so close I can now buy the full product line and immediately report on my HAUL.  Stay tuned!!

Make sure to visit the website for more information on Bee Mine products.  The site is chock full of encouragement for naturals and transitioning chicas.  Ecodermis and Wolfberry is located at 310 Malcolm X Boulevard, Brooklyn, NY 11233… Happy Shopping!


Unclogging Pores on a Budget

19 Jan

I ran into this video on Youtube (via ChiselleCouture). This facial cleanser is comparable to Biore’s Facial Cleansing Strips and is MUCH cheaper. All you need are a couple eggs and some toilet paper.

I tried this out myself. My face felt better but I didn’t see any noticeable changes. Also, I warn you, DON’T use cheap toilet paper! It makes this a COMPLETE mess!

Homemade Facial Toner

5 May

In an effort to find a way to zap away these dark spots on my face (weren’t we supposed to stop with the acne in high school?!), I ran across this YouTube video on how to make your own facial toner. The ingredients are honey and distilled water (naturally) and…RUM?! Yep, I was surprised too, but apparently it does wonders for the skin. Thanks Colorsinspire!

haha @ the water bottle!

Beauty Tips for the Natural Sista

28 Feb

There is much that can be said about having your natural hair and loving it.  I never had this much fun as a relaxed chick (even though I still love the way straight hair looks!). For one, water is your arched enemy.  For some curly divas, water can be a problem too because it creates shrinkage on your other wised lengthy fro.  However, I found that a little mist never hurt anybody.  Which brings me to my beauty tip of the day: How to create great “second day hair” aka 2dh.

Second, third and even fourth day hair is just what it sounds like.  Do a style at night, unravel in the morning and if you can go to bed that night and wake up the next morning and fluff and go then you have just traveled to the world of Second day hairdom.  For a working young woman in the city I find 2dh to be a life saver.  I may be a diva, but Im still not a morning person.  

My trick to creating 2dh is very simple. When I wake up in the morning, because I sleep with a satin scarf, my hair is very smush and might I add not very attractive.  I fluff as much as I can, but because I have course hair, its not so pliable when dry.  I then jump in the shower with out a shower cap and let the mist and steam from the shower do it work.  When I get out, my hair is full, fluffy and plump.  Now I’m looking fierce and ready for my day at work!

Word of caution: Don’t douse your head in the shower and avoid direct contact with the water.  The steam and mist from the shower will do all the work

Beauty Tips for the Natural Sista

27 Feb

So, I went natural about 6 months ago, and ever since then I have been obsessed with my hair!! YouTube, longhaircareforum, nappturality, Curly-Nikki and anything else that raves about natural hair. I am a product junkie (Someone that is constantly buying new products) at heart but at the moment my hair is loving some KBB, Karen Body’s Beautiful that is. A wonderful natural hair and body line coming straight out of Brooklyn, NY.
