JUST GLOW NYC

Hi everyone. Guess what, we have officially entered #glowupseason. Literally though, LOL. I’ve been MIA for a while, but that’s because things have been crazy this summer and I was in need of some serious self care, so I’ve kicked off my self care routine with a new beauty line, Just Glow NYC. They sell a variety of mask to help you get your glow on. I’m currently digging the After Glow Mud Mask with Dead Sea minerals. This mask got my face super clean without stripping it of moisture. As many of you have read in past post, I have dry skin, so I’m constantly battling with keeping my skin moisturized. After using this particular mud mask, my face is super soft to the touch, supple and of course dewy and glowing. I applied the mask with my fingers, making sure to lay it on thick and then I let the mask sit for about 15 minutes, rinsed it off and applied my daily moisturizer afterwards. Talk about amazing results!

One of my favorite things about this brand of mask is that it’s affordable. There are so many mask out there that are a bit on the expensive end and I’m on a budget, but don’t want to sacrifice great skin days, so having found an affordable mask makes all the difference and to top it off, all the Just Glow NYC products are vegan and cruelty free. They are also free of Pthalates, Phosphates, Sulfates, Mineral Oil, and Parabens. In other words, its nothing but the good stuff and none of the bad.

MY FIRST GLOW UP WITH GLOBODY BY JENN

My first glow up brought to you by GloBody By Jenn. Not gonna even lie guys, when she reached out to me about a glo, the only thing I thought was, hey, black girls don’t tan but boy was mistaken. In fact, a glo is amazing on brown skin and just makes are melanin pop even more. It gives a nice bronzy glo to the skin and it’s exactly what I needed to pop on camera for my pageant last weekend. By the way, all the deets on my pageant coming to the blog later this week.

So, how does this glo body business work anyways. Well, Jenn operates a mobile service so it was easy peezy for me as she dropped by the house for my 20-minute glo session. Yup, it only takes that long.

Rule #1: wear dark clothes you really don’t care for.

Rule #2: the less clothes you wear, the more glo coverage you get. In my case, I stripped down to just  a black bathing suit bottom and some pasties to cover my girls. If you’re not comfortable with nudity, this is not the glo for you. FYI, Jenn was an absolute gem about it. She sees nake bodies for glo sessions on a regular, so it wasn’t uncomfortable or awkward, she really understands and is just a lady on a mission to make that skin shine.

So, the glo takes about 24 hours to really activate and get the skin popping for that glowy, dewy effect. With that being said, you can’t shower or sweat for 8-12 hours if you’re seeking best results. I would suggest showering before your glo application. As you can see from the pics, she set up this cool black tent, you stand in it on these foot stickies and then it’s time to get your glo on. The glo is a spray machine contraption, when she sprays it is a little chilly at first, but it’s nothing compared to eyebrow threading or these other painful things we do to get dolled up.

Keep scrolling as I come bearing gifts…

So, as you can see, this was only day one and my skin glo is already popping. With proper daily skin moisturization, your glo application can last up to 1-2 weeks. It’s normal for it to run off in the shower within the first few days, but for me, I went back to regular no glo in about a week and a half, just enough glo for my pageant, and chilling with my bestie in NY for the week (check my IG and IG stories for deets on that).

Anyway, I want you to glo on with me so contact Jen at globodybyjenn@gmail.com or visit their website: www.spraymobibletanning.com and tell them I sent you for 10% off your first glo application. Hint Hint 😉 it’s mother’s day and a gift like this would rock her world, just saying.

See you back here later in the week for deets on my nationals pageant.

Till next time.

YES TO HYDRATED HAIR

I say Yesto soft, supple, hydrated curls and coils. I’m a sucker for a good hair mask. Finally found another one that gets it right, is natural and smells amazing. Yes! Yes! and Yes! I tried out the Yesto Coconut Ultra Hydrating Replenishing and Moisturizing Hair Clay Mask last week and my hair is so happy, detangled and super hydrated. I’ll be trying the Yesto Brightening Hair Clay Mask and the Frizz Fighting Smoothing hair mask next. 2019 has been the year for using clean products with minimal to no harmful ingredients. For those who have taken this journey to living a clean beauty lifestyle, you know it’s not easy to purge of the old and bring in the new, so having the Yesto products to begin my clean journey has been a dream.

Before applying the hair clay mask, my hair was tangled from not washing or detangling it for almost two weeks, so I wasn’t expecting this mask to really do much as my hair was in pretty bad shape and most of the time when it’s like this, no product can really make getting it back into tip-top shape any easier. I thought I’d try something different and apply the mask to barely damp hair with a light spritz of water before shampooing. I let the mask sit for about 20 minutes, rinsed it out while finger detangling my hair. Detangling was a breeze because the mask really softened my hair and loosened up the tangles. After styling, my hair was very voluminous, hydrated and tangle free. This mask is a new fave and will now be apart of my hair routine. My kinks and coils are so happy now.

One of my all-time favorite things about the mask would have to be the creamy consistency. It went on smooth and is by far one of the creamiest textures I used thus far.  It’s super soft to the touch, not to mention, all of their products smell AMAZING. I haven’t tried the face mask, but I’m thinking if the hair mask are amazing, the face mask must be equally amazing. Stay tuned for a face mask review in the coming weeks.

Visit Yesto to shop all the Yesto products. Hopefully you’ll find some amazing things that you can incorporate into your skincare or haircare routine.

Till next time!
