Good Old Coconut Milk

My face could not be any happier with this brand new cleanser that I have gotten from Ipsy this month. Neogen’s Pure Mild Cleanser is a total must have for the face. Never would I think that coconut milk cleanser would work so well on my face. This cleanser is so soothing to the skin. It is so relaxing. It is beyond a gift from heaven from above. This coconut milk cleanser will have anyone wanting to cleanse their face in it once trying it for the very first time.

Cleaning the Face…

Once I applied Neogen’s Pure Mild Cleanser on my face, I was so surprised on how white it turned out on my face. The coconut milk cleanser looked like soap. Thank goodness it was not because soap is bad for the face. While my face was looking like Casper the Friendly Ghost, it felt so free from the pores and makeup foundation that was on it. My face felt so good being in the lovely coconut milk. I felt like I was actually doing my facial skin a great favor. While applying the cleanser on my face, it felt like pure heaven! This cleanser felt so good on my face and I have not even washed it off just yet.

Start Scrubbing…

As soon as I start to scrub the coconut milk cleanser on my face, it start to foam.  The foam of the cleanser collects all the dirt and makeup from my face. When I was scrubbing my face, I had so much fun with the foam.  The foam from Neogen’s Pure Mild Cleanser felt so refreshing.  In fact, it actually made me want to cleanse my face for a second time.  The foam of the cleanser can encourage anyone to have fun of removing the dirt from the face.  The foam can make anyone feel like a little child inside for wanting to play with foam.  By having foam within the coconut milk cleanser, cleansing the face can be more of reward than a burden.  This foam is beyond wonderful.

Let’s Rinse…

Once I rinse off the foam from my face, the dirt and makeup was removed.  After rinsing my face from Neogen’s Pure Mild Cleanser, the face is automatically moisturized. This is why this coconut milk cleanser should be in everyone’s bathroom right now.  For a cleanser to cleanse and moisturize the face with just once rinse is so incredible.  This just doubled the fun of cleansing my face.  After rinsing the cleanser off of my face, my face felt so smooth and clean.  My face felt like it can breathe again from removing all the dirt and makeup that was clogging it.  This cleanser is the greatest!  Never do I have to cleanse my face and then moisturize.  Instead, I can do it both at the same time in just one minute.

 Neogen’s Pure Mild Cleanser is the greatest thing ever!  The cleansing, foam, and moisturizing can make facial cleansing easy and so much fun!  Never would I think that I would love a cleanser so much.  Never would I think that I would actually try coconut milk on my face.  Neogen’s Pure Mild Cleanser can be pure heaven for everyone!

We Want Our Curves Back

So the new trend of this year are curves. But, there is one little tiny problem. WHERE ARE THE CURVES??? There are models that a supposed to represent curves. However, they are just as skinny as they can be. I am no trying to bash every single skinning lady out there. But, if the fashion world are going to be talking about curves, please show the ladies who are thick and/or have an hour shape body. It is images like this that make not so skinny females feel so ugly about the way she looks. It is images like this that make females go to anorexic or bulimic just because they have to look a certain type of way. I for one, am so tired of it! Bring back our curves!

Image result for fashion icons who have curvesSuper Bowl LI….
When Lady Gaga performed during halftime at Super Bowl LI, others were criticizing the singer’s stomach. What made it worse was that Lady Gaga really did not have a gut for everyone to criticize about. It was just a little pooch. As great of a body that Lady Gaga has, she still got slammed for just having a little pooch of a stomach. It just really boggles the mind. What is really a good body? What is really a beautiful body for the world? How skinny did a female have to be in order to have the perfect body for the world? When looking at images of very skinny women, no one says a word. No one says “that model was a serious problem” or “that model needs to eat a cheeseburger.” Everyone is just happy and accepts the very skinny model. Why is that really?
Fashion Image…
Image may contain: 2 people, people standingWhen I was on Facebook, one of my college friends had posted a picture of a banner that a store had in their store window. It had two females posing with their backs against the viewers. On the right side of the image, there is a saying that that says “Love your curves.” Both of the females obviously do not have any curves. Both of them are just as skinny as they can be. Of course everyone was wondering on what curves that the banner was talking about. Again, not shamming these models on the banner. However, if a company is going to shake up the world, then shake it up with someone with a little meat on the bones. Everyone is not talking about just the ebony side when it comes down to curves. Everyone is talking about ebony, ivory, and any other face that have hips, thighs, and a bust of the size of double D. In other words, add in the ones who does where a size ten and up.

Curves are Beautiful…
When it comes down to real curves, they are beautiful. Talented celebrities such Marilyn Monroe, Queen Latifah, Sherry Shepard, and Amber Riley are all great examples of being curving and beautiful is all about. It is time for everyone girl to love themselves just the way they are. It is time for the fashion image to be shaken up again. It is time for others to know that body shamming is not great. It is time for everyone to see that not everyone is mint to be slim. It is time for everyone to know that being thick in the waist is just as beautiful as being a thin in the waist. World, it is time to embrace the real curves of life!

Just Count On Peroxide

The joys of having peroxide in the house. Some might think that peroxide is a waste. But as for me, it is a lifesaver. Peroxide is actually great for hygiene and beauty. I use it everyday with no problem at all. When I did more research on peroxide, I was so shocked to learn what else it was great for. Some will find it shocking that peroxide is not just for little wounds. Some will see that peroxide is a lot more helpful than harmful in everyday life. Come and learn about the joys of using peroxide for beauty and hygiene references.

The Teeth…
When it comes down to peroxide, I can always depend on it for the teeth. Every morning and night, I always use peroxide as a mouthwash before I start to brush my teeth. I would put just an eighth of a cup of peroxide in my mouth and gargle for a minute.

After spitting the peroxide out of my mouth after gargling it for a minute, I would then wash my mouth out with water. The peroxide has no problem killing the germs and bacteria that the toothpaste and toothbrush cannot get in my mouth. My breath is more refreshing. My teeth are more whiten. After using peroxide as a mouthwash, my teeth and mouth could not look and feel even better.

The Skin…
Peroxide has no problem being incredible for facial cleansing. When my acne was getting bad before I had my menstrual cycle, my mother suggest that I use peroxide for facial cleansing. At first, I thought it was weird. But later I thought to myself, that it could not hurt but to try something for once. I put a dab of peroxide on a washcloth. I rubbed the peroxide on the acne that appeared on my face. The next day, my acne was almost gone. My complexion was looking amazing! After trying peroxide as a facial cleanser, I was thrilled of the results of my face.

The Nails…
Besides hygiene, peroxide is really fabulous for the finger and toe nails. With the nails, the peroxide has no problem giving them that whiteness that they desire. Just soak the lovely finger and toe nails in a bowl of peroxide and they are good as gold. It really does not take a whole lot of peroxide to have the nails naturally whiten. By soaking the nails into some peroxide, the nails can look clean as snow. With peroxide, the finger and toe nails are white and healthy.

Peroxide is great for all things possible whenever it comes down to hygiene, beauty, and home cleaning. Trust me when I say that it can really work miracles. Peroxide is no longer good for emergencies. It is great all around life as well. After trying it on my teeth, skin, and nails, they are never the same. Others around me have noticed a big difference in my appearance. I have noticed a big difference in my appearance as well. After using peroxide for everyday use, I could not be even more happier.
