Calling all Kinks & Curls // Original Moxie Giveaway and Review

My friends over at Original Moxie were kind enough to send me a few products to try out and some to share with a few lucky winners! I received a total of eight products and can’t wait for YOU to try them. Keep reading to learn more about each product and to find out how YOU can win one of FIVE mini combo kits designed to fit your needs! Get Clean! No-Foam Shampoo THIS. IS. A. STAPLE. It’s the only Shampoo I’ve ever truly loved. Get Clean! “takes a gentler approach, harnessing the cleansing properties of Yucca Root & Soapnut to remove excess oil without disturbing your scalp’s natural balance.” Just like with any other shampoo, I focus on really massaging the product into my scalp (in about 6 sections) and then let it cleanse the length of my strands while I’m rinsing it out. I can actually detangle my hair with this shampoo (a first) and it doesn’t leave my hair feeling brittle or striped. I have eczema, so my skin is prone to dryness, but …

Jord Cora Series: Koa & Rose Gold (Giveaway)

A wooden watch? That’s exactly what I thought when Jord Wood Watches reached out to me, but upon further investigation I realized that wooden watches are kind of magical. Rose gold is definitely trendy right now and what better way to dress up a casual fall outfit than with the warm, neutral tones of wood? Jord has a wide selection of wrist watches for both men and women that come in different styles, wood grains, and colors. Keep reading to get the deets on a  very exciting giveaway!   I’m a sucker for timeless packaging and anything custom, and Jord does an excellent job at both. I have really tiny wrists and was actually able to get my watch sized. They included extra links just incase the fit wasn’t perfect and a little cloth wipe to ensure that my watch is always spotless. The watch came in a beautiful wooden box that will definitely protect it for years to come with a small cushion inside (featured in the above image) and a ventilated drawer that allows …

#ChantelJeffriesExposesJustinParty… But Not Really

Ladies, always keep your receipts. No, not the ones from the grocery store. I’m talking about his nudes (if you’re into that sort of thing). Side note: Don’t take nudes, but if you do keep your partner’s as insurance. If you haven’t heard, Chantel Jeffries’ phone was hacked resulting in some interesting press for Justin. The hacker generously shared a nude photo of Justin with the world and tagged Selena Gomez on J.Bieb’s penis. THIS WAS MY FAVORITE MOMENT#BB18 pic.twitter.com/dCFRyDIInC — Michelle Meyer #BB18 (@MichelleMeyerBB) August 19, 2016 Why CeeJay one might ask? Actually, who is CeeJay? Chantel Jeffries is GOAT. She’s a dj with a fire mixtape. A girl whose highlight is on 100 Watts and who just wants the damn AUX chord. She also went out with Justin Bieber (allegedly) and was in the car with him back in two-thousand-whatever when he got pulled over for speeding in Miami. Peep Chantz and Biebs below. I guess people are really upset with Justin because he deleted his Instagram, so why not hack his ex’s Instagram …

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask & Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum

I’ve tried several Valentia products and these two are among my personal favorites. The Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask is perfect for preventing and healing summer breakouts. I’ve been using it a few times a week and it has helped tremendously. If you (occasionally) skip washing your face before bed, use this first thing in the morning for an extra deep cleanse. Otherwise, use it before bed two to three times a night. It doesn’t dry your skin out and the little exfoliating beads are quite gentle. My skin gets super oily during the summer time – particularly in my T-zone – and this has really balanced my skin out. The Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum feels incredible on the skin. It’s lightweight and perfect for when you’re skin needs and extra boost. I like to use it at night, right after I cleanse and tone. It’s great at reducing dark spots and scars and adds some extra hydration to your routine. I don’t use it every night, just as needed. Remember to use products in a way …

I’ve been testing out their newest line of products designed specially for people with eczema and/or psoriasis – and I’m here to tell you it works! Keep reading for details on an exciting giveaway! I’ve had eczema my entire life and finding a way to manage it has been difficult because I am not particularly fond of medication. As a kid, I had it on my elbows. It vanished for a few years and now I get flare-ups on my right hand which can be kind of embarrassing when I’m shaking hands with someone or holding a microphone. I am very cautious when it comes to what I put in or on my body. Thankfully companies like Derma E are making products that are safe for everyone! The Psorzma line is a collection of powerful, plant powered non-prescriptions that are very gentle and effective. The Scalp Relief Shampoo has a mild tea tree oil scent and is incredibly soothing on the scalp. It’s particularly …
