Now, I know this product has been out for a minute, BUT I’ve really been enjoying First Aid Beauty skincare products so I decided to give my thoughts on this particular product.
So this is an exfoliate that contains shea nut shell powder & willow bark extract that helps to gently exfoliate skin for a smooth and brighter finish to the skin.
One thing that really impressed me about this product was that it was very hydrating, now I’m sure that is due to the shea butter that is in this product. I have had many issues with exfoliates that leave my skin feeling really dry, and I just don’t have that problem with this product.
Now the only thing about this product that bothers me is the smell, now I’m very big on smells it is really hard for me to use products that don’t smell good to me. This product smell is one I can’t really describe, I just know that I can’t stand the smell. Thankfully this isn’t a smell that is going to linger on your face for a long amount of time, once you wash this off of the face the smell goes as well.
The weather here in Texas has been bipolar to say the least, it will be freezing in the morning then hot by the afternoon time. So usually when the weather is like that, it makes my skin go crazy. I was starting to get dry patches all over my skin which never happens, and this exfoliate really helped with them. When I would wash this off of my face, my skin was noticeably brighter and looked a lot healthier. My skin was extremely soft and moisturized and I just have never experienced that with an exfoliate before.
So I am very pleased with this product, it retails for 24 dollars which I think is a great price. You get 3.5 oz of product in one tube, and a little goes a long way with this. Remember this isn’t a product that you use everyday, I recommend using this product about 2-3 times a week.
I recommend you all try this because it is a pretty bomb skincare product.
Any other questions don’t be afraid to ask ya girl!
online shopping is always a plus ;)
I know some people who don’t like to see or use that word, so being respectful I just use the word “area”.
So many of you wanted to know about my waxing experience today so I decided to just write a post about it.
When I walked in today I was nervous not as nervous as I thought I was going to be while I was sitting in the waiting room. As soon as I was walked back to the actual room my nerves shot up, to the point I was almost sweating lol.
It is very uncomfortable experience I’m not gonna lie, you know you’re just laying on a table with your legs spread open essentially and its weird. She jumped right into it, she started with my bikini line first to see if I could handle the pain. The bikini line was not that bad, so I continued.
Now, I went into this appointment on no pain medication. I know many people who take some a couple hours before, to help with the pain. Overall if I had to rate the pain on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 7, I’m sure the more I get waxed down there the easier it will get. The further inside the “area” she waxed, the more painful it was. Obviously the more sensitive areas are going to hurt worse. The process didn’t take as long as I thought it would, she went pretty fast. The lady who waxed me did all she could to help relax me but I was so uncomfortable myself it just wasn’t working lol. It was nothing against her, I was just nervous for the process itself. She did talk to me while waxing, which help keep my mind off of it a little bit. Just remember these ladies wax “areas” all day long and yours is no different, the more comfortable you are the more comfortable the lady who is waxing you will be.
The overall result outweighs the pain in my opinion though. I was shaving for so long, but the next day the hair was always growing back & then razor bumps would form and I hated it, which is why I proceeded to get this done. I do think it is worth it, I’m sure when I go back (and I know I will) it will be easier, and get easier each time I go. So far, I’ve seen people say that they have been sore afterwards, but I am not. After you are done waxing, it is normal for a little bleeding and redness to occur because essentially your pores down there are being opened.
BTW: You do not have to get everything taken off, you can leave some stuff down there and do shapes etc.. I took mine all off.
I recommend taking someone with you for support, just to ease the awkwardness & to have someone else there to talk to. Make sure this person is okay with seeing your area because it will not be covered lol. So maybe take your mother or sibling. Take pain medication before you go a couple hours before, I think it will help with some of the pain.
I’m very pleased & even though it was painful I love the outcome of it!
