Product Review : Mary Kay Satin Hands

I am happy to be reviewing Limited-Edition†Blissful Pomegranate Satin Hands® Pampering Set retail at $36. This is a limited pampering set , so it will sell out quick.

To be honest with you I do not pamper my hands at all. I just have a soft palm and it’s natural. But I guess over time, it might change or remain the same (Amen it will remain the same).

3 Key results that you will notice after using the bliss pampering set as shown in Mary Kay site :

  • Instantly, hands feel moisturized, soft and smooth.*
  • Hands feel revitalized, soothed and protected.*
  • Skin feels renewed, looks rejuvenated and instantly looks healthier.*

Step 3

Mary Kay Satin Hands


Protecting Softener

Size : 2.1 oz

My experience :

Hand looks rejuvenated & relief of dryness.

It keeps your hand soft.

Long lasting result & smooth surface.

For all my Minnesotans (women & yes men ), you know our cold weather does make our skin and hands dry . I would recommend that you use this Mary Kay hand set because it gives you a smooth palm and the price is perfect. I believe once a week is okay for people that have soft palm . But some people may need to try this twice a week before they can start seeing result. It works!!!!

Thanks to the Mary Kay Beauty Consultant for this package. They ship in Minnesota, to other states and Internationally too. I got other items that I wish in another post.

The Art in Henna : 1 on 1 experience

IMG_9493

What is Henna ?

According to fragrancex.comhenna is a plant which grows in the tropical climates of Africa, northern Australia, and southern Asia. Its leaves contain a pigment called lawsone which combines with proteins to cause staining. Because of this staining quality, Henna has been used throughout the ages to dye hair and create body art designs.

My Somali co-worker and friend, Hinda took me to the Somali Mall to get my henna. Prior to me experiencing it, I heard a lot of bad remarks about it. But I was curious to get my own experience. During the process from the beginning to the end I did not feel nothing or get any allergic reaction. Rather it was cool and relaxing for me.

A few things to know before getting henna:

  • The content for my henna was mixed with henna plant and black hair dye.
  • If you have a sensitive skin then henna is not for you. Remember the content (or mixture) has hair dye that contain strong chemical combination of  ammonia and hydrogen peroxide etc.
  • Know your tolerance level for your skin. FYI : The hydrogen peroxide works by bleaching out the original  colour and releasing oxygen, then allows chemical reactions to take place. In this case it allow the henna to stay black rather red. This will make the henna last for about 2 weeks .

West Side Africa woman !

Gele head tying is not for the faint heart. Head gele is commonly known in Africa especially in Nigeria occasion. The best thing that happened this April in MN was Simi Kesh Master Class, a professional beautician,  she demonstrated live new makeup techniques and tying multi-pleated gele. Unfortunately, I missed the makeup session due to work. Yes, y’all I have a job! Always stay gracious in getting your paper.

What do you need to tie your Gele ?

 

Things to keep in mind is that the tying of gele has upgraded in style. I remember when my mother would tie her hair for hours before going to church or special occasions. Now with the new Asoke pleat style, you will need help to create those beautiful round multi-layers. According to Simi K., she explained that it is impossible for anyone to develop multi pleats/layers with their gele by themselves. She said jokingly “except that person is born with 3 or 4 hands “, but it is not a joke!

The video shows the step by step from bending the Asoke , then creating layers, smoothing the pleats/layers, and making sure you knot the ends tightly.

Fenty Beauty vs. The World

Fenty Beauty, Match your Skin Tone and The Beauty Inclusion of 40 Shades!

A multicultural approach to beauty line is to provide products that cater to a vast majority of different skin tones. There is no denying that women around the world have been going crazy about Fenty Beauty. It is tough to ignore that other beauty brands are scrambling now. Rihanna is known for her fashion and beauty look with outstanding success in the industry.

Fenty Beauty was created for everyone: for women of all shades , personalities, attitudes, culture, and races. I wanted everyone to feel included , that’s the real reason I made this line.” -Rihanna

I have never heard since I started wearing makeup – from back in the days of Mary Kay till Mac Cosmetics, Cover girl, Iman Cosmetic and now Fenty Beauty –  that in less than a month a beauty line sold out worldwide. When I went to Sephora it was a zoo the first day and I had to come home because the line was ridiculous.
