Gotta say I love it.

The tone matches well,

I got mine from Target, and bought a mid-range Kabuki brush (another brand) at the same time.  It wasn’t apparent that the IMAN powder comes with a small brush. 

Moisturizer application came first.  After waiting just a minute to let it fully sink in, I twisted the top to shave off the right amount of powder.  I swirled the brush into the powder, tapped off the excess and then used a buffing motion to apply to my face.  Imagine my surprise when a few dark spots on my temple seemed to magically fade so much as to be nearly undetectable.

It cuts down on shine and hides imperfections and somehow manages to be sheer enough as to almost look like it isn’t there at all.

Thumbs up.

Good stuff

I like to buy natural beauty products.  I can’t say that all my beauty loot is natural, but a fair amount of it is.  The latest thing I’ve tried is Jojoba Hemp Conditioning Shampoo, made by http://www.shescentit.com.  First, the good news:  It is paraben, DEA, and sulfate free!  A reading of the ingredients list reveals one natural ingredient after another.  This is a relief because so many shampoos contain a mere drop of their advertised “natural ingredient”, the rest of the concoction being decidedly unnatural.

It’s scent is light, and it lathers well.  My hair was left soft and fresh, but not stripped.  I used it on my son last night and it was great for his nearly straight hair as well. (which probably means I’ll catch my husband using it soon, but that’s another post. https://foreverloyal.wordpress.com/2009/08/07/if-he-cant-use-my-comb/)

Unfortunately, the shipping was a little slow.  Perhaps I’m just spoiled by larger online stores.  However, the product is worth it, and of course I love supporting small business.  Here’s hoping more people will patronize shescentit so she can upgrade to warehouses and drop shipping.

In the meantime, I’ll just be sure to order well before I run out of this bottle.

Go forth and be gorgeous.

Gorgeous hair.  We all want it, don’t we?  Many women will drop $$$ on deep conditioners, shine serums, even hair vitamins.  However, it seems many of us overlook  a key component of healthy, beautiful, long hair:  the proper tools.  I get mine from http://www.tenderheaded.com .

The right comb, the right pillowcase, even the right ponytail holders and hairpins can make a huge difference in the length and beauty of your hair.  Beautiful amber combs, handmade and seamless glide thru your hair instead of ripping it.

Satin pillowcases don’t suck moisture from hair and preserve your style.

Large, smooth pins keep hair in place and glide in rather than having to be forcefully shoved in, reducing breakage.

They are all “must haves” as far as I’m concerned, and I get mine from http://www.tenderheaded.com .  Relaxed or natural, the products from this store have never disappointed me.  The shipping is fast and the orders are always accurate. 

Go forth and be gorgeous.
