Skin Care

Vitamin C serums are rightfully touted as a bit of a holy grail product because they're known to successfully fix some of skincare's most difficult-to-treat issues. From severe hyperpigmentation to premature aging, Vitamin C blended with other powerful vitamins and ingredients should be the first formula we look for.  Fortunately for...
For the last few years, we've been loving everything FENTY, but this Cookies N Clean Detox Mask from Fenty Skin just dropped and it's already among the greats from the Rihanna-led megabrand. But before we hop into why it's on the list of our must-have skincare goodies, let's get one...
What skincare products are and aren't worth your money is completely subjective because everything doesn't work for everybody, so if you like it? We love it. However, there are a few things that are completely pointless when it comes to achieving your skincare goals. And if you really want to go...
Rough, uneven skin is typically thought of as a problem for the winter and fall months. But truth be told, as it gets warmer, clothes get shorter! And if you're going to be showing all that skin this spring and summer, you might as well make sure said skin...
Skincare doesn't stop at your neck! In fact, the stretch marks, sagging, and cellulite a lot of us are concerned about exist mostly from the chest down! And with it getting warmer and warmer outside, we want to be able to show a little skin without worrying about those pesky...
Let’s talk about hydration. It’s one of those relatively cut-and-dry activities – not just because you do it when your skin feels chapped and flaky – but because there’s a lot more to moisturizing than furious buttering and mindless rubbing. And while your skin is a beautiful, independent element that...
7-Eleven
7-Eleven has just shocked the beauty industry. The convenience store has launched a coffee body scrub in Australia that only costs $1. 7-Eleven is no stranger to selling budget brews. Over the years, these brews have gained a devoted early morning following. Now, the convenience store has used its famous coffee beans for...
For the bulk of us, anti-aging treatments are something that we start thinking about long before we even reach 40 years old. This is because, well, we're kind of forced to. From slight fine lines and a few sags and wrinkles, to sunspots and hyperpigmentation, the natural aging process can bring...
When it comes to self-care, body shimmer is one of those things that really adds a lil somethin' somethin' to your whole vibe. Whether you want to feel fun and flirty during the day, or grown and sexy when nighttime hits, glitter, glow, and shine will get the job done!  However,...
When it comes to bodycare products, consistency truly is key. If something is watery, lumpy, or overall not what you expected, it can really rain on your self-care parade. Our first thought? Leave it alone, throw it out, never buy it again—in most cases, all three!  But before you throw your money...
We all must wash our faces. I mean, this is just one of those very simple facts of life that can't really be debated. However, not all of us use a cleansing balm to do so. In fact, I'm willing to bet that a few of you aren't entirely sure what...
The whole idea of using shower oil always seemed a bit counterintuitive because we all know that oil and water don't really mix, so how on earth is this a good idea? Well, it actually works a lot better than you might think it would. First off, it lathers.  Yes, cleansing oils...
When it comes to black-owned, luxury skincare goods, African brands have been holding it down. And when we say "luxury", we're talking about high quality, going above the industry standard, and made with the wellbeing of our people in mind.  From shea butter that is ethically sourced from Ghana, to unique...
If the acids in skincare were in a movie production, ascorbic, hyaluronic, and salicylic acids would be the main characters – they’re skincare pros and universally liked. Kojic acid would be the cool, under-the-radar editing director everyone’s heard of but doesn’t really know anything about. But, here’s the thing – Kojic...
Faking clear, glowing skin doesn't necessarily sound appealing to all of us. I mean, why not just put in the work to actually have the skin we desire? Truth be told, we can and should. However, for most of us, the journey to the skin of our dreams is going...
