Birthday Beauty Finds: Korres and Hair Of Nature

July 23, 2018

November is my favorite month as it represents my birth. I know for many a birthday isn’t anything to be excited about, but it brings me to a place of reflection and gratitude.  Not that faux gratitude but the deep kind that makes you happy to clean your apartment because you have one to clean or your body even allows you to move. Or the kind where your excited and happy to buy new beauty products because you have a few coins to spend.

In my bday flow this month I was able to get my hands on some great finds. One was purchased and one was sent to me. Both are dope brands and great products.


So while stumbling through one of the magical places on earth, Sephora I was introduced to a great product from Korres. The dopest and most beautiful amazon vendor trainer educated me on the benefits of their Wild Rose Oil and Sleeping mask. Being that I’m often on a plane and in different climates, I’m always up for some great skin care.

The Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil is so pretty and delicate to me. It has bits of roses in the oil which adds to its majestic powers. It’s not an icky feel to the skin and can be added to any moisturizer you have. I tried it alone and with my moisturizer and I will say depending on my skin needs at the time it can go either way.

Here’s what you need to know about the product:

A powerful brightening oil infused with real rose petals and boosted with super C to increase skin’s absorption of vitamin C by up to 1,000 percent.

Solutions for:
– Dullness and uneven skin tone
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Dryness

As I get older, I really want to ensure I have flawless skin without makeup. I often will not wear foundation when I travel, yet I still want to look amazing. So I’m excited to see the changes.

The Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial is another product that seems like a hydrating gift from heaven. I noticed over the last year my skin is drier in the winter so anything that can add to its hydration will be my friend. Skin that is severely dehydrated will essentially make you very oily and also make your foundation breakdown fast. Your skin will drink the water from your foundation thus leaving you with an icky mess.

Here’s what you need to know about this product:

An overnight facial-in-a-jar to address uneven skin tone while improving skin texture for a brighter, more luminous complexion in as little as one night.

Solutions for:
– Dullness and uneven texture
– Uneven skin tone
– Loss of firmness and elasticity

You can get a dope set for Sephora right now for 24.00! I picked up the last one at my Sephora and glad I did. That is a steal and gets you a great taste of the products.

Hair of Nature

I was sent these amazing goodies from Hair of Nature! I’m always down for great small indie brands as well that’s where really amazing things can occur. I love my bigger brands, but smaller brands can really focus in on quality and ensuring their products are more potent. When I got the products which had been in my mailbox for a week, the struggle life of a traveling consultant, I noticed they hadn’t really been affected by the weather. It’s about 75 now in Texas and so that made me happy. After opening each jar I was overtaken by the most delightful smell. These products truly must have Jesus’s tears and drugs as it’s just an amazing scent.

I received their LOC Method Set and a Whipped Cocoa Shimmer Body Butter. 

The Healthy Hair Oil is very light which is great for my low porosity hair. I feel it tingle just a bit and smells divine. It’s touted to help stimulate your scalp and help to keep moisture in your hair. Oil doe not moisturize your hair but helps to keep a solid moisture barrier.hair of nature loc set

Ther Scalp Conditioner is a dream. It has a variety of different kinds of butter and oils that help you really give yourself a nice treat. This product claim is to help stimulate hair growth and boost scalp health. I am 2 months out of my big chop, so  I will be using these throughout the week while in the hotel to relax my mind from my clients. They can be a bit of a needy toddler from time to time.

The leave in conditioner is an interesting mix as it’s quite watery but very potent. I noticed after neglecting my hair this week, after applying my hair felt instantly moisturized and not sticky.

The Whipped Body Butter is like your favorite part of your fav movie. It smells so yummy and I love that it gives my skin a nice glow. It’s very thick even though it’s whipped which adds to my skins moisture levels. My skin has been parched forever so this makes me feel all supple and luxe. hair of nature coco whipped body butter
