Braid Out Pics + Made From Earth Review1:02 PM
Earlier this week I showed you all pics of my twist out that I wasn't quite feeling, but like I said in that post I ended up turning it into a braidout. Monday night I simply braided my hair in to medium sized braids without adding any extra products and in the morning I unraveled and rock a braid out. At night I rebraid and add a little Coconut Oil when necessary. Here's my hair last night...
Now here's a subject that's not often discussed on this blog....mainly because it's something that I've always had issues with. Skincare! I've had trouble with my skin since I was a teen, mostly acne related. If it wasn't a breakout then it's was acne scarring. As an adult, breakouts come every now and then, but when they do come they come hard lol! Since October I've successfully maintained my skin by using the Oil Cleansing Method and prescribed gels to spot treat breakouts. So when I was contacted by a rep from Made From Earth to try out their brand I was a little nervous. I didn't want to mess up this winning streak my skin has been on lately. So I decided to not use all the product samples at once and just introduce my skin slowly to something new. Below you'll find my review of the PH Equilibrant Moisturizer and Citrus Fresh Lip Balm.

My Thoughts: I prepared my face by cleansing it with my oil mix like I do every morning and night. While my skin was a little damp from the final cold water rinse, I applied the moisturizer to my face. The consistency is thick and creamy so a little goes a long way and the scent fresh and light. I've been using since Monday and I love it! My skin is soft, my pores are minimized, it gives my a nice glow with looking greasy or oily. I'm not the makeup wearing type, so my skin needs to feel and look great as is...and it did! My only complaint is the price :( I mean....$23 for 2 ounces is a bit expensive in my opinion. I honestly can't see myself purchase it unless it was on sale or had a discount. In the meantime I'll work this sample jar until it's all gone lol!! Take a look at my bare mug below...(1st and last pic with flash/middle pic without)
On my lips I have on the Citrus Fresh lip balm. When you have a full, luscious, curvy pout like Moi there are no excuses...your lips MUST be soft and moisturized! I love the fresh cirtus scent, but I wish it had a little flavor to go with it. It works great on it's own and when used under a lip gloss. Read More HERE!
