Rose Water has easily become a staple in my skincare regimen alongside Rosehip oil. When I got this one by Desire Natural Luxury; a made in Nigeria brand that specializes in organic hair and skincare, I was quite excited to try it out because I barely had five pumps left from my old Rosewater. The most shocking thing about this product is it’s price, my old bottle of Rosewater cost me twice the price of this one from Desire Natural Luxury and this one works just as well.
At the beginning of 2017, I mentioned that I would be doing little to no blogging on certain months because I had a ton of exams to write throughout the year. Sometimes it was frustrating because other aspect of my life suffered – business, relationships and friendships but it was worth it in the end because I passed all my exams and bagged my first license to practice this December. I’ll be sharing the highlights of my months this year and the not-so-good moments too. You can share a bit of yours in the comment section all the way down below, I would love to read.

If you’re “hip” and keep up with latest beauty trends (if you’re not, don’t worry I’m struggling too), you might have noticed that DIY activated charcoal masks made with glue are the new thing right now. I don’t know who launched this trend but I would never use glue on my face or advise anyone else to. I had to look for a better alternative to glue and share my experience before we all got dragged under. There are numerous benefits of activated charcoal including teeth whitening and underarm lightening but we’ll be focusing on the skin benefits in this post.

I love face scrubs, masks and basically any opportunity to just indulge and have a mini pamper session, you can check out some of my favorite masks and scrubs here and hereI got this scrub at an event earlier this year and kept it all the way at the back of my products drawer, I’m glad I finally and it’s a Made In Naija product too
I have enough oils to start an apothecary.

I didn’t realize I had many different oils until I was clearing out my product drawer while moving earlier this year. The Rosehip oil and Argan oil are my favorites but we’ll be talking about the Rosehip oil from one of my favorite Nigerian brands.
Ever since I witnessed them mixing products to pour into Head & Shoulders shampoo containers in the market, I’ve become more firm in my resolve to stick with Nigerian brands that I trust. You hear of diluted, adulterated products but witnessing the act is something else entirely, I was angry for the whole day.
Moving on, I got the Mint Organic Care (M.O.C) Peppermint Foot Scrub in my Albimazing box. I rarely get to have proper manicure, pedicure and pamper sessions (because med school struggles), so this product was a real treat for me.
I’m shamelessly #BuyNigerian and discovering new Nigerian owned/Made-in-Nigeria beauty and hair care brands truly excite me. I received these products last year from Abebi Organics; a Shea butter based skin & hair care products company , hand made and delivering quality organic, natural products with love.
