there was a time I thought attending an HBCU was the ultimate black cultural experience. but then… I moved to brooklyn, and my life has forever changed. all I ever want to eat is jerk chicken, rice & peas, and beef patties. if I don’t hear at least 2 soca songs on a saturday night out, then I’ll throw a fit. I ditched nivea, lubriderm, and dove soap for pure shea butter, dr. bronner’s and black soap. girl, listen… these hips are wider than ever, but my skin is clear and glowing… and I’m happy with all dat. oh… and I’m celebrating kwanzaa this year!
I’m always on a mission to try new products and brands, and this summer I discovered a new skin care line, kate lynn & adwoa. I met the owner, Davida, a few years back at a women’s empowerment dinner in Atlanta, hosted by my amazing friend Jesse Mills. so, when I learned of the new business venture, I had to support.
I originally was only going to purchase a few bars of black soap, but then found the coffee body scrub and ordered that as well. coffee seems to be all the “RAVE” right now, but its always been an amazing addition to beauty products more specifically body scrubs, and here’s why:
• it’s an amazing exfoliator
• reduces cellulite
• improves circulation
• contains anti- inflammatory properties
I’ve been using the KLA coffee mint body scrub 3 times a week for 3 weeks. my skin is smoother and glowing. I don’t drink coffee, I’m a tea person, but the smell of ground coffee is so amazing. there are no disclaimers about using the boy scrub on your face, so I do. to make sure the scrub isn’t too harsh I mix with a light oil based cleansing oil. my favorite is bare minerals (check it out). overall, I love the product, and I’m super excited about trying other products from the line… next up, the black soap shea butter body wash and shea butter cream.
if nothing else… make that switch to shea butter and black soap… the best decision you’ll ever make no matter your skin type!
