SYB Freebie: A Set of SheaMoisture Dry Oil Sprays

SYB Freebie: A Set of SheaMoisture Dry Oil Sprays

Hi Muchchachitas!

I always say this, but I just love when a brand that’s really bawse at one thing (hair) is almost as good in another category (bath & body). Say hello to Shea Moisture Dry Oil Mists – this week’s SYB Freebie.

Finding time to unwind and relax is, like, a “never happens” story for many of us. But these luscious, delicately-scented, fast-absorbing (i.e., not greasy, not even a little bit) oils give you the tools to enjoy a long bath soak — or at least a good rub down. The rest of us will live vicariously through you. The four flavors are delectable, and they each do different things: Coconut & Hibiscus brightens and tones; Lavender & Wild Orchid hydrates and calms; Argan Oil & Raw Shea is an anti-aging wonder; and Tahitian Noni & Monoi soothes and repairs.

I’m giving away ONE SET of 4 Body oils! To enter simply subscribe to SYB and like our FB page! 

Now take a sec and check out the oils that are included in the set…

At-Home Phototherapy Treatment? Absolutely!

Hi ladies,

So, I was out last night with my girlfriend Trish, who is a literally flawless Haitian-American chick. These two British guys started talking to us and were floored that we were in our thirties.

Me: Well, black don’t crack, you know.

Dude (yelling over the crowd): Crack is wack?

Me: Well…yes. But no, black don’t crack. 

He had no idea what I said or what I was talking about (I also think there was an accent barrier). Plus, even though it’s pretty much true — it’s also an old wives tale. We do crack, sort of. Instead of getting fine lines, we get…soft. Due to diminishing collagen/elastin, our skin loses elasticity. I haven’t really figured out a cream that’s helped me tighten up, so when IlluMask Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask came across my desk, I perked up. It looks bonkers — like a cross between Devo in the “Whip It” video and Friday the 13th’s Jason — which made even more excited to try it.

Basically, it’s a high-tech, at-home spa phototherapy treatment. Phototherapy is technology that uses light — good light, not UV, obviously — to treat skin conditions (everything from acne to rosacea). Until now, it’s only been available in spas and at dermatologist’s offices. And here comes IlluMask, which does the exact same thing, for only thirty dollars! The weird white shield is attached to sunglasses, and you just stick them on, turn on the battery-operated remote and sit there fifteen minutes. As the infrared and red lights glow prettily, they magically even your skin tone, smooth roughness and tighten skin! After thirty sessions, your skin looks like Adriana Lima’s ass. Taut. I tried it, and I’m shocked at the results, you guys. Try it! Crack is wack!

They also make one for acne, bee tee dubs.

Hello Hydration!

Hello Hydration!

 

The goal? Miles and miles of glowing, moisturized, non-ashy skin -- a 'la bomb ballerina, Misty Copeland.

My name is Anieka, and I’m addicted to cocoa-butter. What else cures ash so expertly? It’s old school, but whatever; the West Indian in me just won’t let it go. I still remember going to school super-shiny, after a process I now refer too as “greasing 101.”

Anywho, it’s time for a change. When summer comes around, cocoa butter (the huge tub at the local beauty supply, btw) just makes me sweat. I can’t with the greasy texture. So during a quick scan at the drugstore, I spotted St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion, and was intrigued.

I usually stray from lotions because they never seem to lock moisture in all day. But this one’s exactly what I needed – serious moisturization without the greasy texture! It’s summery-light and absorbs crazy fast, leaving my legs feeling like butter. Citrus is my favorite scent (the grapefruit notes are heavenly). Oh, and the continuous nozzle spray makes for easy, targeted application – love that my hands stay dry.

Cocoa-butter will always be dear to me, but St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion is my summer staple. Officially.

 

Xo,

Anieka W.
