My Inventory

I didn't know what else to call this. I have purchased so many different products for my curls, as a result of being a PJ (product junkie!). I figured why not make a list to help me keep up with what I have and don't! I'd hate to buy something else I already have. (Apparently I should have done this sooner...) You might find something I didn't like that you want -- I'm willing to sell or trade. If you see anything you want, let me know!

I have followers and I haven't even been posting! I'm soo sorry.. I never thought I would have any readers! :P I got off the CG routine anyway, but now I've decided to go back! I don't know how much good it will do, because I start Cosmetology this January so it will probably be for nothing.. haha!

I still wanna do some reviews and stuff so check back soon!

P.S. If you have a beauty type blog, leave a comment with your link and I'll put it on my sidebar! :) I'm always looking for friends!

Good For Hair, Good For Skin

I found this recipe on NC.com. I haven't tried it yet, but I hope to soon!

Originally posted by Jess the Mess:

Blend equal parts dry oatmeal,dried goat's milk (I got mine at the local health foods store as my TJ didn't carry it), and flax seeds. Put in a jar with a lid.

Put a small amount of raw honey (regular honey was called for in the book but all my mom's friends had better experience with the raw) in a small container ex: an empty lip gloss pot w/lid.

Put VitaminE oil (the recipe calls for EVOO but I hate the smell and I needed the healing of the VitaminE) in an oil container with a stopper. I found mine for cheap at Ross.

Buy Rosewater in a spray bottle. They have it at TJ and Whole Foods.

Now you are ready...

Put on a headband so you don't get food in your hair.

Put a scoop of the dry mixture in your palm. Add a little water to make a wet paste. Apply all over your face and let it sit for about 5 minutes or until it feels like it has tightened up. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.

Spritz face with rosewater.

Put a tiny amount of honey (about a fingertip) in your palm, spray it with rosewater and rub in your palms to "melt" it. Apply all over your face.

Spritz again with rosewater.

Put tiny dabs of oil on your face (about 3 or 4) and rub in all over to moisturize.

After that I spritz again but you don't have to. It does feel oily for a few minutes but it "sinks" in. I do the whole routine once a day and do a quick wash with the dry mix if I feel like I need to wash my face again. I know it sounds like a lot of work but it goes so fast and considering all the scrunching, plopping, etc. we do to our hair, it's easy to work the face routine in. Just try it. You probably have most of the ingredients at home already. It has changed my life. I'll try to update with a pic of the stuff in jars on my counter. Hopefully some of you will love this as much as I do. Oh and sorry this post was so long. I have debated on wether to post this because of the length but It's official...I HAD to share my new love.
