Have you heard of British Curlies? Well, if you haven’t it’s unfortunately too late. They’ve closed down. So I made the most of that and got myself some goodies. I don’t know if by the time this post is published whether the shop will still have stock but give it a go – Shop British Curlies.
I am a product junkie, I admit it. I think I’ve said it a few times on this blog, Instagram, Twitter, pretty much anywhere I get the chance to. But I have to say I was very reserved on our recent family trip to Florida. It was my first trip to the USA and I always thought if I ever had the chance to go, I would go crazy in the shops. Like bankrupt myself crazy! I don’t know if it was because it was so late in the trip, because it was Wal-Mart or because I knew my product cupboard…
I am in no ways promoting that #productjunkielife but I’m sort of promoting that product junkie life! I did a post like this last year and I haven’t used all of those products so the fact my stocks have been replenished is…amazing! I’m not gonna lie. So excited to try these products too and add them to the Woeful To FroFull Product Cupboard of Wonders. #ProductJunkiesUnite !!!!
I actually meant to write this post at the beginning of the year but I suppose the procrastinator in me has reared her ugly head a little bit. Better late than never I suppose. It’s time to let out my inner product junkie.
Three years and six months! Woo! I should really be happier but in all honesty, I’m disappointed in myself.
A little while, like 8 months ago, so not that little, I was planning on starting a series on detangling. I was particularly exasperated at the time with all 3 kids hair. If it wasn’t for the crying and childhood trauma it would likely cause, I’d do to theirs what I did to mine. In a heartbeat. Shave it all off! But maybe I’ve found something that works?
***This is my blog’s most viewed post and unsurprisingly it is one of my favourite products on my journey so far. I’m in a bit of a blogging slump, possibly because I know I’ll be taking some time off in a few weeks and my mind is already ready to shut down. But while I’m finding my way again, I thought I’d repost the post that keeps me going. It literally makes up about 20% of my total views at the moment! So if you’ve not read this post yet, give it a go. It’s a really good one, even…
I wasn’t in the market for more skin care products or any products at all. I’m a product junkie and I’ve pretty much filled my shelf in the bathroom. And spilled onto the other shelf. And in another cupboard too. Not to mention the products that are out because I’m actually using them. They are everywhere, down the side of the sofa, on windowsills, even in the fridge. So the only thing to do would be…to buy more obviously. In steps YourGoodSkin.
The reason why anyone becomes a product junkie, in my opinion, is because you’re looking for the elusive Holy Grail of products. The one that you know works time and time again without fail. The one you tell your friends and family about. And the one you force on your friends and family because they didn’t listen to you and you need them to know how great it is. Their hair and skin deserves the same happiness as yours. The Holy Grail however is elusive. And unless you’re lucky to get it right on your first try, you might end…
When I decided to buy my first co-wash I had no idea what I was doing. In the UK, you can’t just walk into your local supermarket and buy hair products specifically for black hair/ kinky hair. You might find curly hair products if you’re lucky and if you do, the selection is small. My usual place to buy products for hair, skin or beauty is Boots and they had none. My next choice was Superdrug and in store they had nothing.
