Honest Review: L'Oreal Revitalift Deep-Acting Moisturizer.

*Originally posted on my Instagram with some words added here.

I received this product from Influenster to try. I was supposed to take a before and after photo to show how this cream lifted and toned my skin.

My before and after in one photo.

I HAVE to be honest.
I didn’t make it past day one!
I’m going to jump right into why.
I put this on my face and was immediately put off by the smell of the product. I have a sensitive nose and certain smells are hard to ignore. It smelled very medicinal and the fragrance they added didn’t help. I know this isn’t all natural and organic. Sometimes, I don’t mind that. But I don’t expect it to smell like an ointment.

I know this isn’t all natural and organic. Sometimes, I don’t mind that. But I don’t expect it to smell like an ointment.
However, it felt okay on my face. It gave it a healthy glow. It didn’t get dry but if I was to touch my face lightly, I could feel the product on my fingers. I don’t think my skin completely absorbed the product.
Would I use this again? Maybe underneath another product with a stronger scent than this. Unfortunately, I could not use this product daily.

For now, I will stick to using my oil mix as a moisturizer. As far as lifting and toning, I just need to stop sleeping on my face. Can you tell which side of my face I sleep on the most?

Have you used this? If not, would you? What do you use or do to fight the signs of aging?

Are We Obligated to Buy Black? My Response to Harsh Criticism Toward a Fellow YouTuber.

Hey, Everyone! I’m glad you paid a visit to my site. 😀

Are we obligated to buy black only? I buy black, but not all the time. I’m going to tell you why I asked.

So, couple nights ago I was up late catching up on my favorite YouTube channels and I clicked on Naptural85’s latest video on the Pantene Gold Series line. She did a great job reviewing the product like she normal does for product reviews and D.I.Y.s.
Watch the video here.
Yes, I am a fan of her’s, but not a Stan! Meaning, I am not one to think that she can do no wrong and I don’t agree or like everything she does. But in my head, she is a sister from another mister.
Usually, when I like a review, demo, vlog, etc. I may skip reading the comments because folks like to troll HARD! Yet, I read through the comments and I can’t remember why. Maybe I was going to leave a comment or question about the product… I don’t know because I got really distracted by comments like these.

“Pantene is hiring Blacks but it is not Black-owned. Of course they are not stupid, they know where the money is going to come from. Please support Black-owned companies. Keep the profits in the community!”

“sick and tired of whites profiting off of us. With all that’s going on in this world, I refuse to allow that to happen with MY money. Pantene doesn’t give a damn about any of us. They’re just trying to make a dollar. I will only support those who have a real interest in me and my people.”

” Sponsored products always get rave reviews, even though many people who use it don’t have the same result!”

“Love you Whit, but I support Black owned as much as I can. Pantene is white own and they see profit in including Black people..they’re not stupid, so I kind of ignore your tutorial sorry. Then again…Panteen got the big bucks and since your family is expanding maybe it’s not about Black but about green. I know your life long dream is owing a home and Boston is very expensive. This makes sense. Pantene has the big bucks for sponsorship, you do you.its about your family and your financial situation.”

What the hell?! Who are these people?!

That last comment is from Satan. That woman let Satan use her to be messy. I’m not playing when I say that either. She hit on VERY personal points of Whitney’s life and tried to make her feel guilty for doing what everyone else in the world does and that is whatever the hell they want. You don’t come at someone and mention their body, family, home, and money. That is one of the many things Satan does to bring us to crumble in defeat. Just pointing out who the real enemy is and no, it’s not that woman.

Everyone does whatever they want. Unless you are a newborn baby or have a disability, whatever you twitch your muscles to do is in your control to do. Period.

Yet, I respect some of the concerns that most white-owned companies don’t care about us and we should support our own people. White-owned companies are jumping on the fact that many of us have returned to our hair to its natural state because they are losing money from the fact that we no longer buy their relaxers or other products that cause more damage to our hair. They were the ones who lied and convinced us that our hair isn’t normal or manageable.

White-owned companies not caring about us is nothing new! Why are we acting like that’s a new thing? Did we think they cared about us when they we selling us relaxers? Flat irons? Teaching our children in their schools? Creating food deserts in our community causing us to heavily rely on their McDonald’s, Rally’s/ Checkers, and Burger King?

Anyway, my responses below shows a better light on how I feel about these comments and the notion of an obligation to buy only black-owned.

Mobile screenshots below.

20170521_001958

Apparently, I watch too much WWE with my husband and read the original comment in my Steve Austin voice.

There are more comments that follow my statements. Feel free to visit the video’s comment section and find my following responses.

I also, don’t care if the video was sponsored. I’m not going to get on a virtual soapbox and mention every unnatural, unsponsored or sponsored, and non-black-owned products that Whitney has featured on her channel. But they can be found if you search for them.

She COULD feature only black-owned hair care products on her channel and the same goes for me and my channel, but how honest would that be if that is not what we do in real life?

Why are people expecting YouTubers do create videos for free when you don’t do what you do for free? And millions of people watch YouTube videos all day long and the revenue from those ads are literally pennies compared to the work that goes into creating content that is pushed out daily for viewers. Creating high-quality (or even low-quality. Ahem!) YouTube videos frequently isn’t cheap or easy. This is coming from someone who is just getting close to 500 subscribers after I started almost two years ago.

Now, mind you I would have said the same thing if it were anyone else’s channel because I am strongly tired of some people acting like that there is an obligation to buy ONLY from black-owned companies. No one should feel so pressured to buy or even demo products and services JUST because they are black-owned. That’s like saying, I’m obligated to buy from companies ran by women because I am a woman. No! I buy what works, what fits, what costs less, what makes me feel better, what fits my values, from companies who show women that look like me, and what I like!

Every product or service that is black-owned won’t be to our liking and we aren’t obligated to keep spending money on things we don’t like. That’s wasteful.

If you want everything you use to be black-owned, there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ll be behind you. However, until you can find everything you want to use that is black-owned, keep using whatever the hell you want.

To me, the first step to acting like a free black woman is to realize that I am free to do what I please with what and whom I please and I shouldn’t be treated as if my “black card” is real and attached to how I spend my money… or lack thereof.

So, if we are obligated to buy black-owned everything? Then, we should be earning black-owned money, right?

Thanks so much for reading. Please subscribe to stay updated on posts that are coming out. I recently purchased some products that are black-owned and I will be doing an honest first impression with those products.

Please, leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Take care!

I’m personally designing shirts and products on Teespring.com to bring awareness that mental illness does exist within the black community. There is still the stigma that keeps many of us from being transparent about our struggles and getting help for them.

I designed this Afro-Bella graphic to show that we can ourselves to the fullest while seeking healthy ways to mental peace. She has a pick in her fro and peace of mind. Which is a goal that I want for all of us.

Black Girls Are… Good Girls and Then Some.

 daughter-of-the-forest-1430987-638x545-2

Yes, you read it right. Black girls are good girls. Black women are good women. Yes, I made a general statement about us because it’s true and we are more than good.

I know there are messy, conniving, drama filled, evil women who happen to be black, but I am not talking about them. I am talking to them because we are all capable to do wrong. However, the good that I speak of isn’t the goodie-goodie, do no wrong, or holy girl you might be thinking of because only God is the true meaning of being good. Which all good gifts come from Him and that definitely would include us. 

You are probably the type of black girl or woman, that never really care to be a part of the crowd. You might be like me, eccentric and always will be. I am more than okay with this and I recommend that you practice saying “I’m more than okay with this” because words have power over your life. Even though you may deal with name calling, bullying, and total exclusion; learn to be more than okay with yourself. Learning to be okay with yourself will be rewarding continually in various ways. Possibly, because being yourself and odd can keep so many “anti-you” things away from you. Some “anti-you” things might make it past the gate to give you stress because that is life.  Either way, we are taken care of and we are loved greatly.

We struggle a lot; we’ve seen a lot, but we are always taken care of. In acknowledging that, it may help us to look for and appreciate the good things about ourselves and then show the same mercy and kindness to all others around us. Whatever was thought to be bad or wrong about us for most is a blessing for us and others.

We are the black girls and women who radiate peace, understanding, unconditional love, and don’t allow their circumstances to hide their light. We speak up and cause trouble for the underdog because we know what it’s like to be the underdog. We are the ones that prove the world wrong just by being ourselves and making strides toward our goals, the kind of goals that we “aren’t supposed” to have. 

www.twitter.com/nini_bWe are the type that hate to see the world suffer, but are willing to risk the world mocking us just to attempt help another sister or brother. We are chubby, fat, toned, thick, cute, sexy, well fed and well taken care of by our heavenly father in various ways. Therefore, our melanin pops hard and the curves in our hips and thighs exist to bear the life that is ours to carry and reproduce.

We are powerful, resilient, competent, adequate, intelligent, and strong. We feel pain, fear, uncertainty, and discouragement. 

We are ourselves from the top to bottom, inside and out. Quite frankly my dear that is a very good thing and then some.

To Be Black and Mentally Ill.

Being strong, black, and proud is not a treatment for mental illness.

I am a sufferer of depression, anxiety, and compulsive eating. (Update: PTSD and recurrent depression.) I have no shame in admitting that to anyone anymore because I know that I am not alone. I also want you and all the members of the black community and other people of color to know something very important. I want you all to know that you are still beautiful, strong, resilient and that you are not alone, or will you ever be. Yet, there is something else I want you all to know.

The Misconception about Mental Illness Within Us.

I want you to know that being black doesn’t make us immune to mental illness. It’s not just a “white girl problem”. It’s not just a problem for those who can afford treatment. It’s not just something imagined. It’s not an excuse. It’s not a symptom that lasts a day or two. It’s more than sadness. It’s not being a spoiled brat. It’s way bigger than being strong, black, and proud may cover.

It’s great to be strong, black, and proud! So, don’t lose that. However, being strong, black, and proud is not a treatment for mental illness. I can understand how we have come to those conclusions that we don’t get depressed or need treatment. Those are the same conclusions that shame and inhibit getting help.

Only a White Girl Problem?

We see that the only ones were seen or mentioned to be depressed in movies, TV, and other media; usually, they are the white teens/women who feel unappreciated or actually have been wronged by someone, but she has everything we could ever need and want. We think she is just privileged and ungrateful and doesn’t know what it means to suffer and be oppressed. So, she pops expensive pills/ cuts her body/ snorts drugs, goes to a rehab in paradise, and “all is well” when she gets home.

I know that’s not the case in real life. Even the white and affluential community deal with drugs, rape, incest, abuse, traumas, and internalized oppression just like we do. Some of them have proved that no amount of money and white skin can take away the pain and the urge to harm oneself, commit suicide, or homicide.

We aren’t portrayed and treated the same inside our own community. The generations before us were not ones to talk openly about their past and what hurts them now. They think everything negative and traumatic was to be a shameful secret because talking about it could “cause problems”, embarrassment, and/or show moments of weakness and vulnerability.

Some thought that problems could just be prayed away. As a woman of faith, I know that if you are going to pray about it, you need to have faith about it and that faith is what will propel you forward into action toward health and healing.

Another thing is that most of our parents and grandparents were struggling hard to make a good life for us. They didn’t take time to work on healing themselves. They thought that suffering through was being strong. They would work through heartache, headache, and everything else.

They passed that belief down to many of us, not knowing that holding it all in can weaken our mind, body, and spirit; weakening us from the inside out. Trapped emotions will cause sicknesses and diseases within our bodies. I believe this is what many people of our generation are beginning to learn.

My Personal Journey.

Mental illness has been in my family for generations and most likely in your family as well. I have not had the opportunity to meet my grandparents but their problems with mental illness and self-medication affected my life and the lives of their remaining descendants. According to my mother, her parents had issues with mental illness and abusing alcohol. Her mother drank and would get angry and her father would drink away paychecks. Therefore, exasperating their struggle to keep food on the table, to keep a warm house, and clothes on their backs.

My mother had problems with depression and anxiety since her childhood. According to her, she has been hospitalized as a child because for periods of time she would stop speaking and would avoid eating. She had troubles during her past and had troubles accepting her past.

This made it difficult for her to move on. Junk food, alcohol, heroin, and prescription painkillers were her sources of destructive comfort and relief. However, those things caused so many problems for her. Therefore, her problems became problems for me and my older sister as well.

There are things my older sister (older by 15 years) has seen that she may or may not ever tell me, but I can see where my mom’s past greatly affected her life just as much as it affected mine.

Related Post: My Holiday Self-Care in Memoriam Journal.

I have seen my mother and some of her eight brothers and sisters go through mental breakdowns, schizophrenia, hallucinations, dementia, drug addiction/ withdrawal, psychosis, and some problems I don’t know how to name as a non-professional. This would happen so often, that the phrase “going into the hospital” has a heavier meaning in my family and it might for you as well. If not, “going into the hospital” meant going into a rehab, possibly at a hospital, for treatment for depression and/or detox.

To be honest, just typing the phrase “going into the hospital” caused me to break down into a heavy cry. A cry that caused me to inhale and exhale from the bottom of my lungs. To let out a cry I’ve never heard myself cry before. I felt like I released tears that should have been shed by my mom and my grandmother. I guess it’s because maybe I did.

Holding it all in is a learned habit passed down from generation to generation. Which is why I do my best to make sure my son can come to me and tell me he’s hurt. I allow him to cry when he is truly hurt, sad, mad, happy, excited, etc. because he is at the age when he still doesn’t know how to fully express his feelings.

I have had problems with anxiety since I was about six years old. Depression showed itself around the age of 10. I was officially diagnosed when I was 16 years old when I kept getting unexplained headaches and the X-rays and MRIs showed no physical causes for my headaches.

Anti-depressants were prescribed to me and helped very little, but I was on them for seven years. Within those seven years, I had switched anti-depression medication about five times. I had visits with psychiatrists and therapists. Some were helpful and some were not but that’s when I learned that I may have been relying too heavily on them to heal me. They possess no such ability.

I have reduced my symptoms and controlled my issues with compulsive eating. I did this by continuing to do counseling and even sought faith-based counseling, avoided anti-depressants (this may not be for you), saw a nutritionist, reduced/ quit eating certain foods, and I constantly preach the truth to myself about being loved and being valued.

My symptoms are not as bad as they used to be. My headaches are so rare and I don’t miss being medicated. However, I wasn’t able to reduce and control my issues without looking into my current self, my past, and into the past of my mother and her parents.

Related Post: Afros and Mental Peace.

There is Hope and Healing.

As I have mentioned before, I suffer from mental illnesses and I want no one to feel alone with this. Others who have opened up and shared their struggles have inspired me to open up more to accepting help and being a help. I believe that we are all here for each other and no one is unto themselves. I truly want to help my other sisters and brothers.

Our women and men need to know that it is okay to admit pain, to cry, to get help, to avoid hurting ourselves, to avoid hurting others, to avoid other destructive behaviors. One way or another hurt is going to come out. Whether they mean to or not, hurt people will hurt others and themselves. We need to know that no matter what, we have value. We are of high value. Not higher value than anyone else but as high value as everyone else. We (women and men) are deserving of love and to love, of respect and to respect, of care and to care.

It’s great to be strong, black, and proud but that truly starts from the inside out.

The Best Acne and Dandruff Fighting Masks!

Hey everyone!

I have been experimenting and filming some of them with a new camera that I am still getting used to. But I have a new creation to help fight acne and dandruff naturally or with natural products. Well, it’s not NEW new because this method has been used before. However, this is my personal recipe using the antibacterial and anti-fungal properties of tea tree oil in combination with Moroccan Mud a.k.a Rhassoul Clay and Bentonite clay.

From my personal (non-professional) research, acne and dandruff are not caused by the same things. However, I have found that there are types of acne bumps that can appear on the face, neck, and chest or back that are caused by candida and can be treated the same with this mix IF you are to try to treat your symptoms at home.
Both of these recipes contain the same ingredients but vary in the amount of the ingredients used.
The recipe is simple and can be adjusted to meet your personal needs.

 The Best Acne and Dandruff Fighting Masks!
My Coily hair with The Clarifying, Dandruff Fighting Hair Mask.

This recipe calls for these wonderful ingredients and here’s how they will help your skin, scalp, and hair improve.

Aloe Vera Juice is made from the gel of the aloe vera plant. Aloe vera contains saponin which is a blend of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It makes a great skin and hair conditioner, leaving both the hair and skin very soft.

Organic Rhasshoul Clay(Moroccan Mud) 1lb (453 grams)
Courtesy of Butters-n-Bars.com

Rhassoul Clay (Moroccan Mud) or (Moroccan Ghassoul Clay) mined from the Atlas Mountains, is brownish red in color and is known for its unmatched abilities to detox and remove impurities from the skin and hair. The mineral contents are what gives this clay it’s ability to improve skin clarity and elasticity, reduces dryness, and unblocks pores.

Pure Bentonite Clay 1 lb(16 oz)
Courtesy of Butters-n-Bars.com

Bentonite Clay (Sodium Bentonite) is aged volcanic ash sun dried to remove any excess moisture (the type I ordered is a product of the United States). When hydrated, it goes through electrical and molecular changes and becomes electrically charged. It is this electrical charge that absorbs and removes toxins from your skin and hair. **Note** DO NOT USE ANY METAL UTENSILS TO MIX THIS CLAY. It will interfere with the electrical charge and will not do what is meant to do, which is detox the hair and skin.
This is also a swelling clay when hydrated. So, when using this in a recipe, just know that it will expand.

Yes, both of these clays have awesome detoxification properties that with each use will improve your skin and hair.They both condition and nourish the hair and scalp.

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) an oil from the jojoba plant. It’s an oil that closely resembles our own skin oil (sebum), is a great moisturizer to add to this mix to avoid over-drying of the skin with this mask. Which is a common result with people and may cause breakouts to appear or worsen. But jojoba oil also has antibacterial properties that control bacterial growth in the pores and hair follicles. It’s high in vitamin e and softens and conditions the skin.

Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) is from a tree native to Australia and is known for it’s anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. There have been studies to show that it can work as well (but not as quickly) as benzoyl peroxide, but with fewer side effects.If you want a great acne treatment without all the side effects, products with tea tree oil will be of great benefit to you.

*Note: Tea Tree oil is an oil that shouldn’t be used alone. If used by itself, the potency is strong enough to irritate the skin and the potent aroma can irritate the eyes. So, just take that as a warning that you shouldn’t use this without the above ingredients or a carrier oils such as jojoba oil, olive oil, coconut oil, etc. Or used without diluting liquids such as water, aloe vera juice, rosewater, etc.

Let’s start with part one which is the face mask recipe.

The Best Acne-Fighting Clay Mask!!! CoilySue86

The Best Acne-Fighting Clay Mask Recipe!

2 Tbsp of Organic Aloe Vera Juice

1 Tbsp of Rhassoul Clay (Moroccan Mud)

1 to 2 Tbsp of Bentonite Clay (Sodium Bentonite) 

1 to 2 tsp of Jojoba Oil

About 6 to 8 drops of Tea Tree Oil


Using a small cup or bowl, add all the ingredients and mix thoroughly with a NON-METAL spoon. So, wood or plastic is fine. Try to get it as smooth as possible. If there are small clumps, that is fine, but large clumps may mean that there are dry pockets of clay. 


If your mix is soupy, wait for 3 to 5 minutes to see if the bentonite clay will expand even further. If doens’t, then add more bentonite clay only. I say only because bentonite clay will expand and even out the clay to liquid ratio. Plus, for me, the bentonite clay is the cheaper of the two clays. So, it makes sense to use the bentonite clay. 

If you have any leftover, refrigerate the remaining clay. From my own experience, it will last one week. If you don’t refrigerate, it will get moldy.


How I use this face mask:

I apply it, avoiding the hairline, and I leave it only until it dries. If it gets uncomfortable before it completely dries, that’s okay. Just spray or splash with water or just go ahead and rinse it off.

It usually leaves me with soothed and smoothed skin!

The Clarifying, Dandruff Fighting Hair Mask! ~ CoilySue86

The Clarifying, Dandruff Fighting Hair Mask Recipe!




1/4 cup of Organic Aloe Vera Juice. It will vary on how much hair you have. But start with a little. 

1 Tbsp of Rhassoul Clay (Moroccan Mud)

1 Tbsp of Bentonite Clay (Sodium Bentonite)

1 Tbsp of Jojoba Oil

6 to 8 Drops of Tea Tree Oil


In a bottle small enough for the application, mix all the ingredients and shake well. After shaking, this is the time to determine if this is enough for that amount of hair you have. If it is not enough for you, add more aloe vera juice. *You don’t want to realize you don’t have enough while in the middle of applying this mask. 


*There are some people who make this mix really thick for their hair, I think that is not a good idea. The thicker the clay mix, the harder it will be to rinse out of your hair. Especially, if you have kinky coily hair like me. It’s not impossible to rinse out, but it will take much longer and probably a trip or two back into the shower or over the sink, depending on where you wash your hair. 


How I use this hair mask:
I section my hair into four sections. I apply the liquid directly to my hair and massage it into my scalp for a few minutes each time for each section. This mix shouldn’t dry in the hair because of the amount of oil and water in it, but if it feels like it’s drying, spray with water OR apply it in the shower and apply then rinse each section out.

The results are always amazing! I use this about once a month or when I see my dandruff returning.
