Age Defying Milk-OLAY

This product is a must during winter. In winter our skin normally dries up quickly and our normal face cream does not do a great job. Instead of purchasing a heavy face cream that is too oily and rich rather use the age defying milk by Olay. Age defying milk is lite on your skin and protects your skin from drying up and cracking. This product is more of a conditioner than anything else so after applying it you can apply your normal face cream.

Step 1

Wash your face

Step 2

Take the age defying milk massage it on your face

Step 3

After massaging it on your face, you can take damp or dry cotton and wipe it off your face. Thereafter, you can apply your usual face cream.

A LITTLE TWIST

When I apply the age defying milk on my face it gives my face a rash, so instead of throwing it away or making it collect dust, what I decided to do is use it as a hand conditioner. The beauty about this is if you use it as a hand conditioner you don’t have to put hand lotion on.

Here are the steps:

Step 1

Wash your hands

Step 2

Take the age defying milk and massage it on your hands

Step 3

Take a dry cotton or towel and wipe the age defying milk off.

If you want to apply hand cream afterwards it’s optional. Even if you don’t apply hand cream your hands won’t be dry.

 

100% Shea Butter lip balm

The beauty about 100% Shea butter you can use it on your skin, lips and even hair. Unlike most lip balms that last for 45 minutes others only 20 minutes. 100% Shea butter lasts up to 2 hours or more. It’s thick and rich in moisture and because it is organic product it won’t crack your lips even when it dries out.

100% Shea Butter is a must

For all the people with dry skin that are tired of weak lotions it’s time to invest in 100% Shea butter, first of all it lasts and it does not feel oily at all. The disadvantage about purchasing 100% Shea butter is the fact that is does not have a scent. However you can apply a lotion that has a great scent on top of your body butter in order to create a scent

Body Butter Milk Cream

If you want hand lotion with a beautiful scent, body butter milk cream by Woolworths does the work. Even though it is body butter the texture is pretty weak it’s more of a lotion than body butter that is why I would suggest it as a hand lotion. It honestly has one of the amazing scents ever I bought strictly because of the scent. It is only R65

If you want to affordable perfumes that have a quality scent Woolworths is the place to go. One of the perfumes that have a quality scent that I have is Infinit by Woolworths. The scent is not overbearing it has a clean scent that has touch of vanilla. The scent is mature and youthful. It’s only R160IMG_20170626_133058IMG_20170626_132908

BLACK WOMAN

Allure-US-April-2017-by-Patrick-Demarchelier-1

Black woman we are beautiful and intelligent, but because society always views us as the lowest of the low we start believing that. Our beauty is not appreciated as much as other races, we only make the cover of vogue, Elle or Instyle twice a year. As black woman we need to start to create more of our own visual art such as our own magazines, we need to have more Ebony magazines, Essence magazines, True love and Destiny magazines. We need more black comedy’s television series where we not being stereotyped as fools.

As much as we love and pay attention so much to our music we should have the same passion for our visual art. Whether it is television, movies we need to have our own production houses to show our version of events. We need to have our own high class magazines to show how we see beauty and how we see the world. We need to own things we need to have our own high class fashion houses we need to own our own production houses and networks. We need to own our own banks, we need to own oil, diamonds and gold because we are capable and just as intelligent as those who are viewed the highest in society. We just don’t have unity amongst each other.

We think we are better than other black female because you have lighter skin or that you have wavier longer hair. Please note: beauty amongst us as black woman does not come in one skin tone, it does not come in one particular feature or one type of body size our beauty is diverse and not one type of beauty is superior to another. In terms of life experience black is black whether you are American, Nigerian, and South African or from London as black woman we face similar struggles every day and we have more in common than we think. We are intelligent, creative and beautiful and life will start to begin once we start believing that. It first starts unity amongst each other and self-belief.
