One of the things I get asked the most is what I use on my skin. My reply is always, “I just drink a lot of water” in which this does play a significant role in skin care, HOWEVER I feel like everyone should have a good day to day skin care regimen! First thing first I have been shaving my own head for almost about a year now. When I decided to go bald( or when the Lord said let there be no more hair follicles) I would head to my barber and have him do a full head shave but the hair would grow back so quickly that I would find myself making frequent visits to him. Which A. Can be time consuming and B. costly, which no one has time for or at least me! One night  scrolling on one of my social media sites I come across and AD for Bevel, I read up on the brand, loved that it was a Black owned company with a shaving system intended for men of color so I thought I’d give it a try.  Ever since I received the package in the mail I’ve been in love! I do not get razor bumps or any ingrown hairs, my head is as smooth as it was the first day I shaved it. If you go to their website you can start you free trial and try it out yourself. They’ll send you the full kit (as pictured in the second photo) to get you started, trust me when I say this is the best thing I’ve tried thus far!  Also pictured is two brands that I live by  1. Origins charcoal exfoliating scrub and 2. M-61‘s Power Cleanse face wash and Power Glow Moisturizer. For all my people that have oily skin or combination skin I highly recommend these products. Both the Charcoal mask and Power cleanse ar daily washes but for me I choose to you the Charcoal mask as an exfoliating mask once a week and the power cleanse as my daily wash. They both help to clear and minimize the pores. The Origins Charcoal scrub retails for $30 in comparison to the Power Cleanse wash which retails for $34. Reasons as to why I chose the Power Cleanse as my everyday wash is it is Gluten free and Vegan, the Glycolic acid helps to remove dead skin cells and helps the skin to feel clean and smooth with out the dry feeling. Also it has Tea tree extract to help with blemish prone skin. Now M-61 has two Moisturizers the Power Glow Moisturizer and the Hydraboost Moisturizer both i have used but i opted with the  Power Glow because it is geared towards oily skin. It also has to promote even skin tone and fine lines. The Hydraboost is also a great choice it has Vitamin E and B5,  peptides helps to stimulate collagen in the skin. Also for my ladies who where make up it is also a primer! These moisturizers both retail at $72. Now I know what you’re thinking these are products are a expensive and this blog is called #BrokeWithExpensiveTaste BUT, there a few things I feel like you can splurge on and one is skin care. I am all about healthy, youthful looking skin so I don’t feel like the price is too much.  You don’t have to purchase everything all at once you can buy them separately and slowly build your skincare regimen. Another thing with these products a little goes a long way so these can be used for months before actually needing a refill. As you know the brands are hyperlinked in the post so you can go directly to websites and check them out, also the Origins scrub can be found in you local Sephora while M-61’s one can be found in all Blue Mercury’s. With all of these products being so pricey i am curious to hear some responses on tips and products that you use for combination to oily skin. Head on over to my contact page and message me with what use that works so I can try some different products.
