Uneyvu Butter Review

I had been hearing people rave about products by Belle Butters especially the Uneyvu Butter. I decided to take a look at the goodies Belle Butters had to offer and fell in love with almost everything. I came down to one product and it was the Unyevu Butter.

The product contains all natural ingredients: shea butter, raw pressed mango butter, refined avocado butter, apricot kernel oil, neem oil, sunflower oil, fragrance, and vitamin E.

Which makes the smell a mixture of greatness. It’s hard to describe the scent, but the best thing I could come up with was a sweet nutty scent.

The consistency was super rich and AMAZING!! It went on smooth and left my skin moisturized and feeling smooth like butta. Oh and this ish was long lasting too. By the end of everyday my skin was still very moisturized and smelled like that sweet buttery nut.20130314-004600.jpg

As you can see it was that damn good!! There is barely any left. LOL

The good thing about the item is that it can be used on the hair as well as the skin. In addition some of the Belle butters sales go to Charity Water and it’s packed with all natural ingredients, so it kinda makes it worthwhile.

Organic Soap… Yes it’s Shea Moisture

You all may not remember but the first CurlBox I received which I believe was the March box, I recieved some great items. One item that really stood out to me was the Shea Moisture Red Bush & Sage Shea Butter Soap.

20120803-114646.jpg
Now this was my first time with this particular item from Shea Moisture. Prior to this I had only known of the hair products, so I had to put this organic soap to the test.

I have been using it for sometime now and I have to say Shea Moisture has done it again got me. They continue to deliver great products. It smells good, leaves my skin feeling clean, it lasts longer than most bars of soap in my opinion. Most of all I know my skin is getting all of its vitamins, minerals, and goodness. Yes…all natural ingredients! (I wish I could list all of them but that wrapper is no where to be found). Though, Shea Moistures has a very excellent reputation for all natural ingredients. So we know it’s real. Lol

Thanks to CurlBox for supplying me with the goods and thank you Shea Moisture for keeping me in love.

Love your Skin,

Black Girls x Run = Great Health!

I recently over heard the news speaking about a program called “Black Girls Run”. In hopes to improve my own health and exercise behaviors I stopped to take a peak. The program provides encouragement for African American females to improve their well being. I found that this was great for the African American community, it give us time to bond with other sisters and gain ways to become healthier. Now, tell me that ain’t awesome!

Oh yes and the best news of all; I decided to do a little research on “Black Girls Run”. Lo and Behold the ladies who started this amazing program have natural hair! Gotta love your natural sistas!

So Support and check out “Black Girls Run”

Doesn’t this motivate you so much!! Black Girls Running!!! Let’s improve ourselves, and get to running!
Until next time….

“It’s the fire in my eyes”

Today, I had a discussion about poetry and there was one poem that kept appearing in my mind. As the poem came into my head, I just thought about my amazing readers; A poem that makes a BOLD statement and speaks to many in different ways….

A poem by the beautiful and talented, Maya Angelou…ENJOY!

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
– Maya Angelou

Until next time….

Love,
BkAphrodite
