Hello and welcome to my blog! AfrikanRising is a place where I (Eyek) discuss (complete) health, beauty, and social justice. As a twentysomething year old Nigerian, I'm sharing my stories, from my struggles with self acceptance, to my favorite skincare products.

 I created this blog because I want you to feel something, whether that's joy, sadness or a desire to self-reflect. I'm learning and growing everyday and I want you to learn and grow with me. Join me on this journey and watch this African rise.

Beauty Haul

Beauty Haul

Hey guys! Long time no see right? So you know, this whole "Pick of the Week" thing has honestly been my excuse to buy all kinds of things in order to tell you guys what's great and what isn't.

Wait, Who am I kidding? Every time I step foot into Target for one thing, I end up leaving with about twenty. Check out what I got below!

Dr. Bronner's Pure-Castile Soap (Hemp Tea Tree)- USD$15 

 

Tresemme Botanique Damage Recovery Conditioner- USD$4.99 (Very expensive on Amazon for some reason)

 

Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream-USD$4.49

Dang Shea Moisture has a product for everything!

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Eczema & Psoriasis Therapy Body Lotion- USD$8.99 (Very Expensive on Amazon)

*I have extremely dry skin, especially during winter, and Black Soap is the only thing that works for me. I will be doing a post on black soap later this month.*

 

No, I'm not mixed, but you don't have to be mixed to to buy or use these products. LOL

Doo Gro Anti-Itch Growth Oil- USD$5

*Great for when you are doing a protective style.*

 

Maybelline New York Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Berry Boost- USD$8.99

You guys know I had to try this on because..makeup. Anyways, this product is more like a lipgloss and the pay-off is pretty sucky. Even after putting on about four coats, it still looked like a lip stain. If you like lipsticks that look like lip stains, then you will definitely like this. 

 

I hope you guys liked this haul. In the next few weeks, I am going to be doing more beauty focused topics and hopefully, a few reviews. As always, thanks for reading!
