Journal: Shopping Haul

Hey y’all!

I went shopping this weekend with my mom and got some great items!

For her designs you really have to hunt them down  and look carefully in store if you want a set! 😉

Without further ado, here is my haul from shopping since  July 31st, to receiving packages today.

Because it is a BEAST moisturizer and is considered by many as the “fountain of youth.” Sure enough, the product she picked up had it listed. 😉

A member of the ginger family, turmeric has long been used as a spice in Asian countries. Even in my home, where we call it “haldi”, it is in majority of the desi dishes my mother makes. It is a major beauty ingredient culturally as well, used for brides and grooms during preparations to beautify themselves, during the “yellow mehndi” as my mother tries to translate it into English, ha. 🙂 During this celebration, everyone wears yellow as to not ruin their clothing when wearing turmeric masks, as it is a heavy yellow dye.

Here is a list of topical benefits when using it in facial masks: Continue reading
