Love, Beauty & Planet Review

How many of you consider yourselves a product junkie? 

If your bathroom looks something like this:

Product Junkie
It’s likely that you are one lol …

A product junkie is someone who buys more products than necessary.
You may debate between paying that bill on time or taking advantage of that Shea Moisture sale going on right now.

In our defense, how will you find the product that works best for your hair if you haven’t taken the time to research and try out different products?

About a month ago, I came across a brand that I haven’t heard of before: Love, Beauty & Planet. The name itself is different which caught my attention. Here are the pro’s of this product (as advertised on the bottle):

  • No animal testing
  • Vegan
  • No Dyes, Parabens or Silicones
  • No animal testing
  • Bottles are 100% recyclable
  • Ethically sourced extract

I only got the conditioner because I was a little skeptical about the product (and I’m very picky when it comes to shampoo’s), but I fell in love after the first use! I bought the Coconut Oil and Ylang Ylang (yellow) one. My hair was surprisingly easy to detangle without breaking away my hair and I didn’t lose much hair in the process.

Cons?

One thing I didn’t like about the product was the consistency. I found it to be kind of watery compared to some of my go-to conditioners.

I used this product once as a conditioner and was impressed with the way the moisture seeped into my hair. I also used it as a leave in conditioner, a few weeks later, which left my hair feeling so soft, moisturized, and bouncy!

To compare this conditioner with another product, I would have to say Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls. pillow-soft-curls.jpeg

The consistency of the two are completely opposite where Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls is more on the greasy side than watery, but the end result (when my hair was completely dry) was fairly similar.

Overall, I was very happy with this product and had to try out the shampoo. It definitetly met my expectations. It isn’t too soapy and doesn’t strip my hair of its oils to the point where it feels squeaky clean, but it feels refreshing to my scalp.

I hope this post was helpful to many of you! Thanks for reading.

Enjoy The Little Things

The other day, I was driving to Brooklyn to my cousin’s house.

Passing this bridge, I was just amazed by the view! The way the clouds sat perfectly over the city was just breathtaking.

Nature is something that a lot of people take for granted. When I say “take for granted” I mean that nature is something that is always around us and sometimes we don’t take the time to see and appreciate it.

The next time you are sitting in a car, or walking home, take the time to look and be aware of your surroundings. By being aware, you are opening your mind to the environment and will realize that we are just a small piece to a big puzzle.

There is more to life than meets the eye, we just have to open our eyes and see what the Universe has in store.

“You create your own universe as you go along.”
