Hair Care Hits & Misses

May 8, 2015 7:38 am Published by haircare2

Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie has been my go-to curling cream for the past two years. A little bit, definitely goes a long way, if you use too much you will end up with greasy limp hair. Once you find the perfect balance, you will be left with defined curls that are frizz free and smooth. Coconut Oil and Shea Butter will moisturize your hair and will improve the quality with continued use. I really enjoyed using this smoothie and love that you get a good amount of product for very little money. However, I’ve recently started using... View Article

Misoves Tangerine Body Cream

March 25, 2015 8:30 pm Published by misoves

Misoves takes great pride in their skincare by using wild harvested, naturally cultivated ingredients. The products are meant to fit into an everyday routine, to be minimalistic and effective.  They have personally hand picked each ingredient with two major benefits in mind; antioxidants to fight off cellular damage that causes us to age faster, and moisturizing oils with the ability to penetrate the skin quickly for noticeable results. The Tangerine Body Cream* has been a staple in my skincare routine this Winter. Its waterless, so it truly hydrates and restores severely dry skin. Shea Butter and Coconut Oil are both incredibly...
