Simply Beautiful Collection (Review)

Good day my dear TPJ readers. How is your summer going? I hope everyone is chilling and having fun this summer. Today i am going to be talking about a certain skincare product that i got to review. This is my first review! yayy!! SBC (Simply Beautiful Collection) has been in the beauty and skincare business for a long time now, for about 25 years. That is a long time for the company to know the pros and cons of beauty/skincare products. SBC has also been seen on Cosmopolitan, that shows that there products are A1.

I have only used this products for two weeks and i have falling in love with them, i am going to squeeze them into my skincare routine and i am going to purchase this products for sure. P.s: The company SBC, hooked me up with there product. It is a sponsored post.

SBC produce various skincare product but i am reviewing just two. Before i start talking about the product i would like to say i love the way the product is bottled, it is so simple and elegant. 

Body wash: I love the smell of the grapefruit and ginger exfoliating body wash that contains elderflower as well, which is so healthy for the skin. This product is so good for the summer as it tones, cleans, smoothens and energizes your skin. Everyone has problem areas that are just darker than their actual skin, problem areas such as; elbow, knee and feet. When using this product, i emphasize on my knee and my elbow because those are my problem areas and i noticed that they darkness around those areas are fading. Another thing i love about this exfoliating body wash is that it is so gentle on the skin and it does the job, exfoliating body or facial wash are usually harsh. I use this product the normal way i use a bathing which is wetting my sponge and then putting a reasonable amount on the sponge, then i scrub my body. 

Body oil: This oil is a total package, it smells so beautiful, so soft on the skin. It makes your skin feel like a baby's skin. This product is made with the use of cotton seed, oat kernel, and vitamin E. If you have a dry or a sensitive skin, i strongly recommend this product and they are affordable so you should definitely try them. I use this product by applying it all over my body before i shower and applying it again after i shower.

Surely this products are a must get this summer as your skin tends to be dry during summer but this products bring it back to life by keeping the skin hydrated and glowy.

Hello TPJ readers, how was your week? I am guessing it was great, mine was superb. Welcome to another edition of the TGIF series! Today's edition is a little bit different, i have been thinking and i figured you guys might be tired of seeing my face every time so i decided to light it up by bringing a new face. So today our new face is one of my close friends, apparently he is my first client because i styled his simple look. If you take a good look at his t-shirt and pant you would notice they are ripped, why buy a ripped yeezy t-shirt when you can diy. I tried to make my look simple as well enjoying summer and loving the color blue hence the summer blue. During summer i tend to wear less, every one tends to wear less really, a top and a jeans would do but like i said before i have falling in love with loose clothes referring to my loose pants they are just so comfy. For this look i am wearing two chokers, i was trying to stack them but i did not notice one of it got loose, the loosed one is actually not a choker it is an anklet turned choker. This is actually the best summer so far, should i call it summer or heatwave? Because it has been so hot this week! The hottest day was on Tuesday and i was literally boiling, i was begging God for rain, still begging God for rain though. Through out this week i have been putting on sunscreen so that i do not get sunburn but i did because i noticed that my skin got darker, more melanin for me then lol ;)

Hey dear, happy new week my friends. So today i am going to share my daily skin routine, this is my biggest secret so be sure to keep it yourself lol you can share it if it works on your skin. So today i am sharing my whole skin care routine that is, how i maintain my face, my body and my lips. It is a total package!

So in the morning when i wake up i go straight to the bathroom to have a shower, right before i shower i wash my face with a black soap which clears and restores my skin. The black soap helps to remove excess oil which would be good for people with oily skin, it also helps to fade dark spots and clear acne so make sure you try it if you fall into any of this categories.

After that i make use of a creamy cleanser to make my skin softer. The product i use removes make up, impurities and oil without drying the skin; the fact that it does not dry the skin is the reason why i use it immediately after using the black soap because the black soap makes the face dry but my creamy cleanser brings the face back to live. I use the creamy cleanser for my morning routine.

Then again i go back to wash my face with a facial wash. With the number of times i wash my face, dark spots have nothing on my face. The facial wash i use, help to bring out your true complexion and it also helps to keep your face smooth. 

 So after washing my face i shower, i make use of a dove bar soap and a sponge. The sponge i use really helps to exfoliate the skin, i use the glove like sponge. I moisturize my face with a cream sometimes and sometimes coconut oil. There are several reasons why we need to moisturize, not just our faces but our whole body. Some of the reasons are:

  1. Moisturizing helps to reduce the appearance of other blemishes.
  2. It helps your skin stay young.
  3. It helps fight wrinkles.
  4. It reduces any chance of a skin problem and prevents acne.
  5. For the make up lovers, it makes your make up look more natural.

I moisturize my whole body with a body oil i made by myself. I use a body oil because i was not satisfied with the results i got with using cream. And also i have a lot of dark spots on my legs, cream was not fading it away but using oil has faded my spots to an extent. My body oil consists of the following; ori (shear butter), coco nut oil, olive oil, almond oil, and vitamin E. The body oil keeps your skin soft, fresh and smooth.

Lets go back to the face, the first routine i share with you was my morning routine, now i would show you my night routine. After the end of the day, when you are home in your comfort zone you should take off your make up, do not wait till you are so tired! I remove my makeup using wipes, but wipe should not be used frequently. Make up can be removed naturally by using cotton wool and coconut oil.

After wiping off my make up i use my makeup remover to clean my face, it also acts as a toner. I love it's smell it smells like cucumber and i love cucumber!

Then i wash my face with my black soap and then dry my face with a face towel and then i moisturize. Make sure your face towel is used for only your face and nothing else and it should be washed every three days.

Now it is time to show you what i do on a weekly basis to maintain my skin. I use my Nivea Exfoliating scrub to exfoliate my face, i do it once a week. I wash my face with either my black soap or my facial wash then i make use of the exfoliating scrub. Note that the scrub has to be applied on a damp face. After Using the scrub rinse with lukewarm water. The scrub helps to remove dead skin cells and it also makes the skin surface smooth for an even complexion. 

 Facial mask, this is for oily skin and combination skin. It is a self heat facial mask, it should be left on the face for 5 minutes for it to clean the face properly and then rinse it with warm water.

 Last but not the least my lip care routine! For my lips i use a lip mask by marykay, it does wonders. Before i started using my lip mask i exfoliated my lips naturally using a mixture of a tablespoon of brown sugar with enough honey and sometimes olive oil. I use my lip mask once a week, i scrub my lips with the lip mask adequately so that it removes dead skin then i leave it for about a minute and wipe it off with a clean damp cloth. After then i apply a lip balm.

 Things you should note
  1. Make sure you clean your face, tone your face and moisturize.
  2. Now that i have told you the importance of moisturizer, you do not just apply it to your face you should rub it into your face. Massage in your moisturizer!!
  3. Make your daily routine as simple as possible.
  4. Wear sunscreen, i did not mention it earlier but you should wear sunscreen. It prevents dark spots and skin discoloration.
  6. Drink plenty of water.
  7. Avoid face wipes, this might not be easy but they should be avoided. Here are some reasons why you should avoid them; they contain chemicals that can irritate the skin, being packed on top of one another is a breeding ground for bacteria.
  8. Do not over exfoliate your face, be gentle whilst cleaning and washing your face. And also when washing and exfoliating your face remember to do same to your neck so that they have the same complexion.
  9. When washing or rinsing your face ensure you use lukewarm water.
  10. Treat yourself to a facial, you can do your facial yourself or go to a spa but treat your self to one. It can be on a weekly or monthly basis, it all depends on you.

Hope you learnt one or two things xx

Happy New month TPJ readers, it has been 6 days since i wrote and i have missed writing so i decided to write today and i am doing something different because i am far away from my photographer. Hope you guys enjoy it. Where are my manners? How are you guys doing, i trust you all are good. What are your plans for this new month? (Let me know in the comment box below). Jeeez i talk to much, let us go straight to what today is all about......

So Currently I Am.....

Missing: My siblings, i have not seen them in two years :( even though they are troublesome and they stress me a lot, i miss their trouble, their stress, everything about them. Hopefully my plans to go home this December works out.

Wishing: I don't have to take drugs, at the moment i am ill and i have to take drugs and i hate them so much. I can remember when i was younger and my mum dispenses my drugs i would hide them in my bra top and then flush them, lol i really hate them.

Wearing:  Over sized clothes and loose clothes because i feel so comfortable in them and they are easy to style. They can be worn casually and they can also be worn out it just depends on how you style it.

Listening to: Mamacita and Shabba. Wizkid is the reason why i am listening to these songs, they are so nice. I love em, i love em, i love em! If you know me personally you would know how much i love wizkid and his music.

Admiring: Justine Skye, i admire her because she is young and she is making waves. She is a pretty young lady who is a singer and a model. Modelling is one thing we have in common i really want to be a model but i think i have to kill that dream and move forward. Second thing  we have in common is purple, even though purple is not her best color but right now if you think of purple you think of her. Lastly i admire her sense of style, her fashion style is A1.

Feeling: Very hyped because it is the second half of the year. And i have a project i am working on and i hope to be done with my project by the end of the year. Just know that something big is cooking  :) and i hope everything works as planned.

Appreciating: My mum and dad, i really appreciate every sacrifice my parents have done for me. I know sometimes i behave like i don,t appreciate them but i really do, may God bless them for me. I also appreciate my friends, my real friends, those that stick up for me, those that come through and those that support my hustle, God bless you for me as well.

Loving the: Off shoulder and choker trend! Like this trend is just so beautiful. 

Watching: Game of thrones. So i am watching game of thrones from the beginning because at some point i jumped seasons so i got confused. I am still in season 1, got a long way to go.

Reading: Nothing! It is so sad i am currently not reading anything. I need to start getting ready for final year, so i need to start reading. I also want to cultivate the habit of reading, it does not have to be only text books, it can be novels, newspaper, inspirational books e.t.c. (suggest some books you think i should read in the comment box below)

Craving: Ice-cream but i can not have some because i have a cold, like who has a cold during summer??

Not sure of: What i want to do i future. In as much as i have plans as an African, my parents have to approve of the things i want to venture into but as things are going my dad is not in support of my plans. But i am going to leave everything to God and let him direct my path.

Determined to: Make my mum so proud of me. I have to make her proud, i just have to make her proud. She motivates me, she inspires me, she is my back bone. Love her so much.

Regretting: Nothing really.

I just feel this month is going to be the best month this year so i am anticipating what it has in stock for me. Stay pretty, keep vibing, and slay on.

Have a blessed month xx
