As a skincare enthusiast, I am always looking for ways to improve my business,  So, as a shrewd business woman, I took advantage of Konga's Black Friday deals to shop for some kitchen utensils that would be of use to me. I ordered some pretty good stuff which were very affordable and a necessity to me and every skincare enthusiast out there.
Here they are;


 I ordered this immediately I saw it, My hand blender is about 2 years old and  I really need a new one, as my old one is 'somehow' faulty. The specifications looked nice, the reviews were okay and it was very affordable .BUY NOW


I have always been a fan of Century products and I have one of these ( I bought one from Jumia last year).  I had to order for an aunt who needed a blender urgently but needed the exact one I had. It is  affordable, durable  and very useful for mixing and making of creams, oils, shower gels, cosmetic powders and so on. BUY NOW


 I have about two which are quite indispensable to me but I needed one more,so I ordered this. Casserole pots are something I make use of everyday. I use them for melting butters, oils, emulsifying wax.....Infact, I use mine anytime I want to make something skincare ,,, BUY NOW

If you don't have any of these, please place an order through the links to get one. The Black Friday promo is still on, hence you can get yours at a lesser price. If you don't have any of these, then it would be quite difficult, if you intend making creams from scratch. They are very necessary for creams, body butters and soap making. If you are planning on starting a skincare business, the above listed items are absolute must haves.

Yours Sincerely.

It's the month of November, the month where you can buy goods with more than 30% discount and my favorite part- FREE SHIPPING!!!!!. In Nigeria, the price of shipping a product is usually more than the product itself, depending on location.

Many shopping platforms have started their Black Friday mumbo jumbo deals and some of the prices of these products are simply jaw dropping.

As a skincare enthusiast, I noticed that the time  I spend looking for skincare products online has increased sporadically this month. While others spend time looking for gadgets and  fashion items, I look for beauty and skincare products. (Don't blame me, it's an obsession)

I am currently keeping tabs on three different shopping platforms and they are Jumia, Konga and Amazon.


Their Black Friday deal started on 14th of November and would end on the 25th November.
Every product is shipped free of charge.


Theirs start on the 18th November and would end on the 21st November. It promises to be the biggest shopping event of the year in Nigeria. There is also free shipping for all products.


Shop Amazon - Countdown to Black Friday

Though their black Friday deals is ending today, it is not too late to make one or two purchases. It is one of my favorite shopping platforms as you can get, most of what you want. Also, you can check out our Amazon store; here for your skincare products. We stock top of the range beauty and skincare products with amazing reviews, hence you won't be disappointed.

Also, remember to shop for kitchen appliances such as blenders, mixers and microwave ovens which is very important, if you are interested in the skincare business.

Why don't you save the dates and check these sites daily for amazing offers.

WARNING! - You might end up with the shopping fever like I did but it's a good thing.
Reviewing a product is one aspect of blogging I love and this is a product I have been wanting to review but I had to wait to start noticing results before writing anything.

So, a relative has been using this product for over a year now, she actually recommended this last year to me, but I was a bit skeptical because I wanted to see its effects on her skin before recommending.

She arrived Lagos and was already on her fourth bottle. I loved her complexion when I saw her and was quite pleased with how she was looking.  I was a bit scared of her complexion turning to red because she's naturally fair in complexion but I noticed no sign of that, rather her complexion was spotless and uniform.

Buy from Jumia

Trust me, I just had to try it out on my skin. She gave me about  ten tablespoons out of the bottle to use, hence I started using it.

Now here's my verdict.

Week 1: I was scared of using it because it contains carrot oil and I always react to anything carrot. Surprisingly, there was no reaction, not a single spot on my face and most importantly no uneveness in my whole complexion from head to toe.
Buy from Konga

Week 2:
My complexion was up to two shades lighter (I was satisfied with that, I really didn't want the ten shades stuff). I had no bumps, no reactions whatever.
(This picture was not edited, no filters and I didn't use foundations or concealers. I prefer using white, talcum or any oil control powder. I used a concealer for my brows and under my eyes only).

Week 3:
I had to stop using it morning and night because I was getting lighter than I wanted. So,I used it at night and Olive Moisturizing oil during the day.
Also, I noticed that despite the fact that I usually go out into the sun quite often (and the sun isn't smiling at all), I didn't get sunburned. Though I would always recommend sunblock, continuing without one would definitely get sunburned and that is something I really don't want.

Since I started using it, I noticed I was sweating more than I used to,  (which is one of the reasons I stopped using it during the day). Hence if you sweat a lot, I would advise you to limit using it or look for another product.

 I don't know if I would continue using it for long but I'm quite satisfied with the effects so far. It's quite affordable, about 4,000 Naira.
You can use it with the soap for a better effect. I can't say if it lightens up to 5 shades as I haven't seen anyone who has lightened up to such shade, using the cream).
It's good for all skin types but I think my dry skinned sisters would love it more.

I have been recommending it to some people, because my experience with it has been mostly positive so far.
What's your experience with this product?

Yay or Nay?
