To begin this wonderful journey in skin care, I believe that it is appropriate to praise the place I cherish the most: SEPHORA!!! I love this place so much, whenever am Stressed I just walk over to the mall and relax in Sephora. Not only is the shop beautiful, they have everything your little heart desires in terms of skin care, makeup and many more. Loads and Loads of brands, you are never missing anything. Anything your heart can imagine is here. This really is my favorite place, and after this place is Walgreens, Boots and many others. Well thank you Sephora, for being my friend when I needed to be somewhere else (lol, I sound crazy don't I? but I just love this place). Anyways here are a list of some tried and true good quality beauty products:SEPHORA: SEPHORA BRAND BODY SUPER SUPREME BODY BUTTER.
I have used this body butter for 2 years now and I love it. It has everything in it, from Olive oil to all the essential body vitamins, and it is especially moisturizing for black skin. Lord knows how difficult it is to find products that moisturize and not just say it moisturize and dries up in like 5 minutes. Ladies if you're looking for something that keeps ur skin soft and buttery, this is definitely an option.For $70 or more you can try this new cream by Shiseido called Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizer Cream. I have tried this cream and it is good, not only does it smell great it comes on smoothly. After using it all over your body, you might be tempted to just walk around naked because your body feels great. I love all of Shiseido products, but I won't lie some are not for black people because they dry up really fast.
I actually look forward to summer every year because of this Nars Body Glow. For $59, not only do you smell great, you look sunkissed and have a healthy glow. I love this product and I still have mine, another amazing thing about this body oil is that it comes on nice and oily (not greasy) but finishes like powder which is amazing. I recommend this for a first date :) put this all over body before you put on that beautiful dress and end up feeling SEXY!!
I am a BIG BIG BIG FAN of Carol's Daughter!! I just love this brand and especially this Unscented Body Jelly, which is an amazing alternative of Vaseline (my all time favorite product). This product is amazing for $13. What I do is put this all over my body after I shower and spray some body spray and am ready for lectures! Great Great product, there is nothing better than finding a nice moisturizing product for african skin.
