Cream & Coco body products review

This review is so over do it reminds me of the expression being slow as Christmas! Cream & Coco celebrated their 4th birthday in April and had a crazy sale all month long. Being the product junkie that I am, I racked up each week when new items were introduced. I got a request to review more body and skin care natural products so I am here to deliver. The intro picture has 5 products shown but I decided to review the moisturizer next week with my skin care regimen. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed my skin is back in optimal condition and I owe it in part to the new products I've been using. Now, onto the reviews and I hope they are helpful if you're in the market for new body products or have never heard of Cream & Coco!

Uncle Funky's Daughter Defunk Hair Refresher review

September is here! Fall is right around the corner and that means it's protective styling season. As you all know, I am currently rocking kinky twists as my protective style. I don't want to say I'm challenging myself to keep my hair protected but for now I'm going to see how long I can go. One issue with protective styles, such as braids or twists, is how to care for your scalp. If you are pretty active or sweat heavy in your scalp, you will want to wash your hair often but this can lessen the length of time your "longterm" protective style will last. If possible, I would clean/wash the hair once every 3-4 weeks to help the style stay neat and intact but what to do during time between washes? In the August HoneyBee Inspired box, Uncle Funky's Daughter hair refresher was the featured item. The following will be my review of it and what I'm doing to keep my scalp clean and flake free until my wash.
