#CurlsNiteOut Haul

Sunday night Barbados Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Show hosted their Summer event dubbed Curls Nite Out. The Founder, Alison invited some amazing people to speak about natural hair styling and maintenance, fitness, makeup application and personal finance. It was a cozy evening filled with creative inspiring people. Amongst them were some Pop Up Shops: Ahlar Designs, Sugar Dream Inc., Tsalach Natural Products, Bite Of Love (824-3159), Luna Designs, Serenity Lounge, Fontaine Creations, BlvcAllure and Eden's Choice Naturals to name a few.

I had harassed Gerri so much about the Peppermint Eden's Choice Soaps that I figured she was sick of me. I wanted to try a few that I didn't pick up at Girlfriends Expo as well. So I was very happy to see Eden's Choice on that exhibitor list.

The motherload 
Repurchases:

  • Peppermint
  • Oatmeal & Honey
  • Tea Tree Oil & Bentonite Clay


My Peppermint game strong, I got nine more coming. I recommend the Oatmeal and Honey for anyone that has dry or sensitive skin: I even bought extra for a couple friends to try.

Newbies (to me that is):

  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Ocean Kiss
  • Cinnarese
  • Honeysuckle
  • Coco Lemonade
  • Coconut
  • Almond Butter
  • Buttercream
  • Aloe & Kiwi
  • Kiwi & Cucumber


Soaps are $6 each or 4 for $20.

Gerri eased one of her scrubs in my bag when I wasn't looking. Much to my surprise! Thanks Luv, I really appreciate it.


Scrubs are $16.

You can place your orders via whatsapp: 253-9053. Remember to buy local and #rep246.

Under the Interlace Inc. banner I work with Fontaine Creations and Marcela was also kind enough to bestow a gift upon me :)


Marcela makes very conscious pieces for both sexes. Feel free to give her a call: 235-1655. She knows I like to stack my arm candy so this fit right in.

Another popular collection from Fontaine Creations is their Energy Stone Bracelets:


In this financial climate the need to have money circulating amongst our local entrepreneurs is more urgent than ever. When we find quality local products and services they should be our first option.

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Alison and her Team once more. I look forward to many more of your events.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
