SUN Laboratories Dark Sunsation Self Tanning – Very Dark Review:

     After looooong searching for the perfect self tanning product, I came across SUN Laboratories Dark Sunsation Self Tanning in Very Dark. I happened upon Sunless Liquidators and automatically fell in love – mainly because their prices are amazing. You can’t find this stuff cheaper anywhere else! I must admit first that I have not tried a “plethora,” of self tanning products. But, I’m sure you could agree that after you tried and reviewed a couple – you know what you like and don’t like and what this type of product should be and shouldn’t be. A self tanner shouldn’t turn you orange for one. It should be a visible lotion so you know where you have applied it. And it should stay on for at least 7 days. SUN Laboratories Dark Sunsation Self Tanning is all of those.

     I like to apply self tanning lotion about an hour before I go to bed. First you want to shower and exfoliate your skin well. After drying off, I take some regular lotion and apply it to my drier areas (ie: knees, elbows, face, hands and feet). The reason for this is so those areas don’t end up darker than the rest of your body. You’d most likely want to use gloves although you don’t have to. I don’t, but then again, after I’m done I have to scrub my hands with a pumice stone. So it’s up to you! Massage all of the lotion in until, making sure there are no streaks. Wash your hands if needed. After I let the lotion sit for about 10 minutes, I get dressed in a dark baggy shirt and pajama pants until I’m ready for bed.

      I have never had the lotion rub off on my sheets or stain any of my clothing. I know a lot of people complain about self tanning lotions smelling really bad. This lotion doesn’t smell when you apply it, however, it does start to smell about 1-2 hours after applying. I feel it gives the best results kept on overnight. Wake up in the morning and take a shower and you’re good to go!

     Regardless if you purchase SUN Laboratories Dark Sunsation self tanning, you want a lotion that is brown in color with a greenish tint(green lets you know that you’re not going to turn into a Ompa Lumpa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Happy tanning!

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque Review:

     I was attracted to this product mainly because it has been known to shrink enlarged pores and because it’s not harsh on your skin. I had yet to find a mask that actually does something. Hearing good things, I bought Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque. After I began using Obagi’s Clenziderm system, I have fallen in love with the feeling of mint on my face! With this mask, you get that cool, refreshing feel that leaves your skin smooth and soft. 

     You want to start off with a freshly cleaned face. This mask dries fairly quick. The Mint Julep Masque is green in color and has a clay-like consistency – I love that! You want to be generous with the amount applied. For the bottom of my face, I applied about a quarter size amount on my hands, and spread over my cheeks, chin, nose and upper lip area. Apply about a nickel size amount to your forehead, temples and t-zone area. Let sit for 15 minutes. The mask begins to harden and turn a light shade of green. The mint is very refreshing!

     Wash face with warm water and pat dry. As soon as I removed the mask, I noticed my face was silky smooth. I could tell that my pores had dramatically shrunk. Any blackheads on my nose were gone! One use. If you suffer from getting blackheads, you will have success with Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque – give it a few tries and you will see results. If you easily get dry, apply Emu Oil or another great moisturizer afterward. In reviewing this product, I will definitely continue using this product mainly because I was so happy with how much my pores shrank. I, being prone to acne, need a good product to shrink my pores to keep oil and bacteria out. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque is also a great spot treatment! You can use it on your face, chest, back etc.

DIY Cracked Feet & Dry Skin Remedy

The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is comparable to mineral oil. Unlike mineral oil, there is no adverse side effects on the skin with the application of coconut oil. Coconut oil is a great solution for preventing dry skin. It helps in treating various skin problems like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. It’s also great because it delays wrinkles and sagging skin! It is also a great deep conditioning treatment for your hair!

Cracked Feet :

  • 3 tablespoons Epsom Salt
  • Coconut Oil
  • Plastic Wrap

1) Soak your feet for 15 minutes in warm water with Epsom Salt. Epsom Salt draws out the dryness of our feet and heels.

2) Dry feet with a towel and apply a thick layer of coconut oil on each foot.

3) Wrap both feet individually entirely in plastic wrap.

4) Place socks on top of the plastic wrap. Go to sleep and remove in the morning.

Repeat this for 3 nights.

Dry Skin :

  • Coconut Oil

1) While taking a shower – exfoliate skin. Rinse off and dry with a towel.

2) Massage coconut oil into the skin.

Repeat once or twice a week.

Divine Derriere Skin Bleaching Cream

Divine Derriere Skin Bleaching Cream Review:

     I like many other women want to look their best while being intimate with their spouse. So, I sought out a product to help me achieve this. Divine Derriere’s product is for male and female use. It’s more like a skin lightening cream because it does not bleach your skin white. I first tried South Beach Skin Solutions which is an “all natural skin lightening cream,” and didn’t give me the results I was looking for. So I ended up using this product to get my desired result. This product can work for some people in as little as three applications depending on skin type. My skin complexion is olive in color and it took me about 2 weeks applied daily. You must exfoliate the skin when washing in order to rid your skin of its dark pigmentation.

     The great thing about Divine Derriere is that you can use it anywhere on the body(ie: elbows, knees, and all your private areas). You can use it on your face for acne scarring, but for most people like myself, you will experience a mild redness for about a day.

Divine Derriere’s skin lightening cream is pink in color and has a grainy consistency. Once applied to the area you will want to wait about 5-10 minutes to put any clothing on. You can sometimes experience a tingling sensation which is normal. Now, this product is not to be used for an extended period of time. So as soon as you reach your desired results you should discontinue use.

*UPDATE: I have been getting a lot of emails about being worried that Divine Derriere Skin Bleaching Cream will darken the skin. Please read below.*

Question:  Hello,

I been wanting to buy the Divine Derriere Bleaching Cream, but I am very afraid that it will darken my private area. Now I am olive skin tone type too, like a light medium color, so maybe it won’t but i’m still concerned. Please let me know what you think.

Thank You!

Answer:   I was concerned about the same thing when I was looking for this type of product. The number one thing you have to do is make sure to exfoliate the area(washcloth, soft loofah etc). Don’t use anything too harsh. If you apply the product day one and day two, than exfoliate on day three. You want to make sure to do this a couple of times a week so that the dark pigmentation will remove itself – like dead skin. I have read time and time again where men and women don’t do this and they end up looking darker than when they first started. The reason for this is because without exfoliating, your skin can’t shed the pigmentation by itself. Same reason why we exfoliate dead skin from our bodies. Divine Derriere’s Maintenance Lotion then in turn helps prevent new pigmentation from occurring. Let me know if you have any other concerns – it is always important to feel comfortable and ready about a product before using. Thanks! *Note: If you are of African-American descent please contact Divine Derriere for instruction*

South Beach Skin Solutions Lightening Cream Review:

     I started out buying this product mainly because it contains all natural ingredients – you can use it anywhere on the body. After using the South Beach Skin Solutions Lightening Cream morning and night for 3 weeks, I only saw minimal results. Their cream does in fact work, but you must have plenty of time and patience. I also thought it was a bit much having to apply morning and night when it was taking so long. So, I ended up buying Divine Derriere’s Skin Bleaching Cream and getting my desired look in 2 weeks. If you are still going to purchase this product, make sure you exfoliate the area to get the best results.

Aspirin Mask

I wanted my aspirin mask to be easy enough that I would have all of the ingredients on hand at all times.

To make the mask, place 3-4 non-coated aspirin tablets into a small dish. Add three to four drops of water to bowl to create a grainy paste. Add about 1-2 tsp. of honey to create a spreadable consistency. (Can add any healing cream). I add Neosporin about once a week when I remember. Rub mixture onto face in circular motions scrubbing lightly. Leave mask on for 15 to 30 minutes. Immediately after you rinse you will notice your skin to be much smoother and softer. It helps a lot with speeding up the healing process. Make sure to lightly moisturize afterward as this is a very drying mask.

The aspirin mask should usually be used three days per week. I have oily/combination skin and this was perfect for me. If you have extremely oily skin, you could probably get away with everyday until your acne shows good improvement. Than you would want to cut back to three days per week. This is such a blessing when I have to deal with cluster acne around my chin area. My favorite “side effect” is that it helps reduce redness as well. I noticed my acne already clearing up after day two of use. Who knew that something that can take away my headache can cure pimples!
