Post Partum Hair loss; send help, send prayers, send suggestions...send chocolate 😩 Swipe to be grossed out 😩😷 I made it through my first baby queen without this side effect...the second? I’m getting hit from all corners 😭pew pew pew pew😭 My girl @theblendedbeauty has already suggested a black tea rinse, I’ve gotten as far as to brewing it overnight but now it’s frozen in the back of my fridge 😩🤦🏽‍♀️ I’m going to start doing that weekly (if I can remember before I’m bald) but I’m also looking for new shampoo. Leave any suggestions or a 🍫 so I can give you my address for chocolate donations 😭😭 Oh right...happy Monday and August is off to a great start 🥴 . #skincarewithsaj #curlyhair #naturalhair #postpartumhairloss #washngo #hairproducts

bbys first @diptyque is she extra now? Yes. Yes she is. 🧜🏽‍♀️#diptyqueParisgiftedme Feuille de lavande candle. From the brand: Feuille de Lavande scented candle surprises and soothes with its distillation of sweet flowers and refreshing green leaves. From me: Yah it’s smells nice! There’s definitely lavender and a background leafy smell. It’s more overpowering unlit which is interesting! Wondering if there’s a candle school to enroll in like Charm school🙆🏽‍♀️😂 Alright I know you guys are the @diptyque experts so let me know what candle I should get next! . . . #diptyque #OctolyFamily #skincarewithsaj #luxurycandles #luxuryproducts #scentedcandles

Brand Review: I haven’t put @kosascosmetics Tropical Equinox Blush down since I got it. If bronzer was a blush it would be this. It gives a really nice healthy glow to my skin without the addition of a “colour” like pink or berry blush and is a perfect addition to my no makeup makeup look. Which I’ll have an IGTV video on soon, once I can wrangle the babies 😩🤣 The lipstick I have in shade Undone and although I do like it, I don’t reach for often but that’s because I’m mostly satisfied with the Lip Fuel in Rush which I also wear daily since receiving. I’m not a fan of the shape of the lip balm. It’s cute sleep packaging but the application process with that shape is not my personal preference. The Tinted Oil foundation was what I was most excited about but unfortunately it just doesn’t work for me and my skin. I’ve tried it with different skin care underneath, different sunscreens and also with no skincare. It looks great after I’ve applied it but a few hours in it starts to separate on my skin and I’m left with little pigment spots all over my pores. I also find that it also emphasizes any dry patches that I may have. The best result I had was with it layered over Sunday Riley CEO oil but it still eventually separates. Also I do have shades 5 and 6 and both aren’t quite the right shades for me. 5 is closest in undertone but a bit light, I wonder if a better match would correct this issue. Maybe I wouldn’t SEE it breakdown in as much detail?🧐 If you have any tips on skin prep before this @kosascosmetics please let me know! They just launched a new liquid eyeshadow which I’m very curious about too! Have you tried that yet or any of these babies? *PR Gift #skincarewithsaj #sajreviews #kosascosmetics #makeupreview #skincareblog

🌊May or may not have used too much of my @sundayriley Tidal this morning 🙂🙃See stories for my full AM routine today! I’ve used and and loved Tidal and I’m beyond happy to have it back in her new outfit! She got an upgrade to a glass jar and a lil scoop too! I found that when using this my skin was always bright. As an enzyme water cream I find that she compliments actives SO well and using with Luna oil was a game changer. (Missing Luna 😩🤱🏽) . I definitely remember why I finished my first jar so quickly 😩 Have you guys tried this moisturizer? My oily/combo tribe if you haven’t you NEED to give it a go! *pr gift* #skincarewithsaj #sundayriley #watercream #moisturizers #skincareroutine #topshelfbeauty

#KevynAucoinBeautygiftedme @kevynaucoin needs no introduction, his books are well loved and sit on my shelves. His was the motivation to getting a pro makeup education because I quickly realized there were secrets between the lines in these books that I NEEDED to know. (I know now 😉) The Glass Glow face is a gorgeous multi use product. It’s beautiful and yes glass like, though it has a tacky texture. This is going into my pro kit because I will get the most from it on my editorials than I will for personal use. I’ll also be added the other shades because it’s that good! If you have this, I recommend trying it in different ways and discover something new! @sephora #glassglow #kevynaucoinbeauty #OctolyFamily #skincarewithsaj #highlighter #glassskin

🥭Pictorial: The correct way to eat a mango. Cause if the juice isn’t running down your arm you’re not doing it right 🤤🥭 Purchased a couple @glossier babies and had to get my fave fruit Mango #balmdotcom It feels nice on the lips!

#tulagiftedme #gallineegiftedme I’m beginning to experiment with probiotics and pre biotics in skincare as they are said to be very healing and good for inflammation on the skin. I was beyond excited to be gifted these from @tula and @gallinee_beaute via @octoly! The Gallinee Body milk so far has been lovely. I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks now and my skin is notably smoother and it also has in my fave Lactic acid. Because I shave sometimes my skin gets a bit irritated and this has helped with that a lot. The Tula set includes a primer, gel moisturizer and eye balm in a stick!!!. While the primer isn’t a fave for me, I really enjoy the Aqua Infusion Gel cream. It’s light enough to give hydration without being too heavy. Also two days ago I had some irritation on my skin and I put this on yesterday and found that it stung a bit then went away. Today the irritation is gone! I’m not sure if the stinging was the probiotics working? Generally I don’t go for things that “sting” but this has been an interesting and positive trial! Gallinee hasprovided a code for you to get $$ off (non affiliate) if you want to give them a go! @gallinee_beaute code: GALLINEELOVESYOU: - 15% until 1st of August #skincarewithsaj #octolyfamily #skincarereview #sajreviews

I’ve got so much to catch up on before the week is over...what’s that? It’s over?....oh. 😕😫 Please leave suggestions or tips on how you organize your daily life..(help!😭) I realized I never shared these in feed but @tatcha sent a surprise package to restock my empty and loved Water Cream and also included the new Ageless Neck Cream and the Silken SPF which has been on my wish list foreverrrrr. @sortofobsessed says this is her holy grail sunscreen and she’s so right, I’ve been testing it out lately and it applies lovely and doesn’t have a white cast on my medium to pasty indoor complexion 😩 It has a faint classic tatcha scent. This is a physical + chemical sunscreen combo which I seem to be ok with once the physical is a high percent, in this case 15% Zinc. Excited to see the anti aging benefits and hoping will also help with the possible melasma I discovered. The neck cream I will be gifting to my mom so when she starts using it we will post her review! Sorry no texture shots, baby woke up 🤱🏽😩💕 Let me know if you love these too! . #skincarewithsaj #tatcha #moisturizers #sunscreen #cleanbeauty

🍊Using every possible product to combat the 🤱🏽 dehydration in my lips! Have you tried any new lip products lately? Added to my Arsenal is @henneorganics Lip Serum which is anti oxidant rich and helps hydrate and smooth lines before applying lip balm. This is my fave out of the set and I’ve seen good results from it especially when paired with the lip balm or one of my sleeping lip masks. *prgift . #skincarewithsaj #sajreviews #organicskincare #lipserum #lipcare #skincarereview

Don’t over exfoliate. Also do as I say, not as I do 🙃🙃🙃🙃 Body scrubbing with @tataharperskincare body scrub with some ground coffee thrown in and face scrubbing with @freshbeauty Sugar Face Polish. I have so much to catch up on. I’ve been testing lots of body products AND hair products. Pampering myself with some new luxury makeup with an effort to treat MYSELF like I treat my clients all while stressing over double strollers. The girls will be 16 before I decide 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️ Have you guys been testing anything great lately? Also do you feel like the interest in body care is seasonal?

When @sephora sends you an email asking back the the dey wit with a $15 off promo.😛🇦🇬 This @louboutinbeauty was a gift to myself and I was most excited to finally give the Louboutin Beauty line a try. I picked up the Tape A l'Oeil- Matte Nude Eye Colour in shade Mariza. The colour is exactly what I wanted, a purple based brown. I love the texture and although it’s a gel like product, it dries to a non creasing, velvet like finish. Truly in love with the formula and I’ve already picked my next shade purchase (wedding anniversary is next month 😏😏😏) The applicator brush though...complete garbage. I expected maybe a doe foot applicator, instead I got a cheap plastic nail polish bottle brush that a cat chewed up on with bristles sticking out haphazardly. I was thoroughly disappointed by this, especially with this being a luxury product and having such pretty outside packaging. To be honest, I really refuse to believe that this is the applicator @louboutinbeauty is providing and there must be something wrong with mine. So I’m going to return this for an exchange and hope that I do get the luxury packaging experience expected. Swipe to see it on! Not the best picture for showing the shade, this was a rushed selfie getting dressed after my birthday cake IG live 🤣 #skincarewithsaj #louboutinbeauty #promakeupartist

I’m a hair model now 🤣#amikagiftedme the iRed Polished Perfection Brush and I was super excited to test it out for the curly crew! I usually flat iron my hair once a year during the fall: winter because beanies don’t fit my fro 😩. However the mom of two life is taking its toll and I have to find easier things to manage including my hair. This brush works easily and gives my hair a stretched blow out texture. It’s not sleek like the results of a silk press but I personally like my hair fluffy. The red LEDs which help prevent damage actually do work well, as I experienced some issues with the non led light version. It’s beautiful also with loose twists or braids to add a curled effect without further heat. @amika #amika #trendingatsephora #OctolyFamily #skincarewithsaj #naturalhairgrowth

I call this....My Oh Sh!t Kit. 👩🏽‍⚕️🚨 You know when your skin is doing great then you’re like hey I should def try 200 new products at the same time right now? No? ...me either 🙃 But just in case 😏 these are the products I reach for when sh!t hits the fan. An arsenal of calming, soothing, balancing products with a hint of detox. @cosrx Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence this is great for quick healing of the skin and hydration. I can’t use it daily, I find I get extra congested but it’s great when used as a treatment. @gunillaofsweden Lerosette Clay Mask. I use this all over or as spot treatment. It’s one of the best clay masks I’ve ever used and will keep repurchasing. This is prob my 6th tube. @dralkaitis Organic Soothing Gel literally does what it says soothe and more soothe . It has grape alcohols in it which also makes it refreshing on the skin, especially after sunny days out. It’s in this sos kit but I use it almost daily! @dralkaitis Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil once again lol the clue is in the name. This I use every night and if my skin is going crazy I’ll skip everything and mix it with the Soothing Gel above to make a serum and that’s it. It has Tumeric and many other healing ingredients. Forever bae 🤤 @dralkaitis Organic Universal Mask. This is a green grass like mask and once I posted about a serious irritation from salicylic acid and the Dr Alkaitis team messaged me and said to use the mask. I did and the irritation was gone...GONE. 🤯 @doctor_d_schwab Herbal Toner. I was gifted this by my esthetician when I was pregnant with 👸🏽(The queen🙄) and I’ve repurchased it since. It smells amazing and it’s PH balancing. When I over do it with exfoliation or when ever I DO exfoliate I use this to get my life back together. Finally not pictured...Benadryl. A lot of times the skin reactions we have to products are a histamine response so I take a Benadryl to get everything sorted. (I will use a low dose Benadryl if needed while I’m 🤱🏽) I’d love to hear what products YOU reach for when your skin goes crazy. Have you tried any of these? #skincarewithsaj

Surfacing from spending three days trying to back up and store 200GB worth of images off my laptop, this included my wedding and all the baby pics😩 My nerves are shot but I did it! I also wanted to say thank you for the love on my latest IGTV video and all of my posts. I tend to push myself in everything I do. There’s no middle ground for me 😆 Although it’s something I enjoy and does come easily, navigating this with the girls 👧🏽👶🏽 (btw 👧🏽 corrected me and said she’s a queen😶) has been a difficult learning curve. I can’t tell you how many images I have of a blur swiping props or product or nursing while holding a dslr 😭 When I say with I mean with, they are always right beside me 💕 So your support and IG validation in likes and comments are fully appreciated and valued and I just wanted to tell you guys that.

🍇Fine lines are creeping up and they are NOT like fine wine 😩 so lately I’ve been focusing on hydrating products. So when #caudaliegiftedme the SOS Thirst Qenching Serum and the Vinosource Sorbet Moisturizer I was like yes please quench me🤤 The serum is really nice and hydrating. On my skin I can get away with layering this on with nothing else after! I also tried it overnight that way and woke up really plump and hydrated. If I’m honest, a routine using this serum lasts two days. Don’t ask me how I know this okay?? 😩🙈 I then added in the moisturizer and while I loved the texture I sadly woke up with a white head each time I used this. I also tried it without the serum and same thing 😭 we can’t have it all but I’m super happy with the serum! #skincarewithsaj . . @mycaudalie @caudalie @sephora #saveyourskin #OctolyFamily

Usually there’s a flatlay of any new products I have posted first, but I was too excited after receiving a package from @kosascosmetics. On my face is Tinted Face Oil shade 5 + 6 Cheeks and Highlight in Tropic Equinox Lips in shade Undone I’m not ready to review yet but I’m in love with the blush. I admit to being disappointed when seeing the palette. But on application she’s a beautiful neutral for medium-medium dark skin. Something I haven’t found for my personal collection so she’s a keeper 😍 I’ll be experimenting more and will be back with an in depth review (and flatlay 😜) #skincarewithsaj #kosascosmetics #tintedfaceoil

Adding more body glow options for my indoor summer 2019 🤗 My OG body spf oil was discontinued a few years ago and I’m down to my last bottle 😭 I saw Adri try this @coppertoneusa Glow spf (was it this? @sortofobsessed ) and I figured I’d give it a try after seeing it in my local @walmart. It’s a thick lotion like consistency with two types of shimmer, a silvery sheen and gold flecks. Honestly the shimmer is a little bit like a drugstore highlighter. However that doesn’t bother me too much as it doesn’t have a typical sunscreen smell, is pleasant to apply and looks pretty in the sun! Also with @coppertoneusa Being a trusted spf source I can be assured I’m protected! They also have spf 15 and 50, I stick to 30. With an $8 price point you can’t beat that! P.s Y’all gonna get into this mom jewelry 😂 (no promo code) Sunnies were a diy project for an @atlbotanical visit (I really am extra irl lol) . #skincarewithsaj #spf #coppertoneglow

I think I found my new hair friends! It took me a while to find a shampoo and conditioner that excluded ingredients that I know don’t work for me but still work for my low porosity curly hair. I decided to check the shelves at @walmart and I found the @garnierusa Whole Blends Honey Treasures line. A quick scan of the ingredients and a quick sniff and I added them to my cart. Now...you might want to sit down for this but....the shampoo is not sulfate free. ( ok have you put down the pitch forks yet?! 🙄🙄)Does it help that it has in Royal Jelly???? I thought about it and you know what... my hair was thick long a luscious years ago when I was using Vo5 ..so 🤷🏽‍♀️ With that said I’ve used it twice and my hair has been really shiny after! The conditioner does a good job of replenishing any loss from the sulfates and has great slip for detangling with my Wet Brush Also it smells really nice and it lingers in my hair which I love. If any changes happen when I finish the bottles I’ll be back with an update! Have you picked up any affordable drugstore buys that have been amazing? . #skincarewithsaj #sajreviews #walmartbeauty #garnier #wholeblends @thewetbrush #wetbrush

Epsom Salt Bae 🛁🤗 . Third trimester🤰🏽 has been kicking my ass and my sciatica is out of control at night while I’m trying to sleep 🙄 . Hopefully I can get a massage booked soon but until then I’ll turn my tub into the Dead Sea and float my troubles away 🛀🏽 Since I’ll be bffs with my tub and 10lb bag of epsom salt, I’d love it if you could comment with bath product suggestions to make this spa like. Mama needs it 😩 #skincarewithsaj #spaday #saltbae #pregnancyskincare

New goodies that @drroebucks was kind enough to send my way! I already gave the hydrating mask a try because ❄️🌬. First impression on the mask was it felt amazing on application, it’s a gel formula so it was very cooling. However the results reminded me of aloe gels which although are technically moisturizing the alcohol content prevents it from being hydrating, and while my skin didn’t feel dry it didn’t seem to make a difference in my hydration levels visibly or to the touch. Key ingredients are aloe vera, red algae and hyaluronic acid The instructions do say to apply a thick layer and my layer wasn’t as thick so I’ll give it another go! Going to try the moisturizer tonight also. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and how they have worked for you! #skincarewithsaj #drroebucks #hydratingmask #sajreviews
