Cleopatra Would Have Loved This Dead Sea Mud Mask ( Here's Why)

I’ve been a huge fan of 7th Heaven face mask since forever; To be honest, I can’t remember when I first started using these skincare treats but I’ve been in love with them ever since.

This lovely company is eco,vegetarian-friendly and is completely dedicated to giving you the skincare treatments that you deserve. I’ve recently brought three new skincare products that I needed to share…
Dead Sea Mud Mask takes you to a calming vacation right away. My skin was craving some extra attention and I immediately received what I truly needed. My pores have been suffering so much and I needed a little boost to cleanse them with the right nutrition.

This salt lake has been around for over 3 million years and even the last ruler of Egypt, Cleopatra, took advantage of dead sea salt herself because of its benefits… So why not use something that has been used by such an irresistible Queen? For more info click here.

Did you know that the ancient Greeks used seaweed and sea kelp for bathing in order to improve their skin? And just a thought to add, if mermaids are real, I think this might be their beauty secret… Just saying. For more info click here.
This product is made with the most amazing ingredients and has the most pleasant fragrance of all. Dead Sea Mud Mask left my skin feeling so cleansed because of how detoxing it is. My pores can finally be absolutely happy.
Cucumbers have been used as a beauty treatment for many years because of its benefits and it’s the main ingredient of this Peel Off Mask.

One reason I’m in love with peel off masks is that all you have to do is apply it on your face, let it dry and then peel it off. It’s just as effective as face scrubs but accept for scrubbing away dead skin and dirt, it grabs onto it and removes it all at once. Makes sense?

Cucumber Peel Off Mask is made to revive your skin while making your skin feel refreshed, cleansed and clear. Have fun!
I’ve been using tea tree oil as a beauty treatment for about a year now and when I discovered that 7th Heaven had a peel-off mask with this as it’s an ingredient, I had to try it…

This face mask can not only remove dead skin and access dirt but it has so many healing properties. Tea tree oil can be used as an acne treatment and so much more and thanks to 7th Heaven, this left my skin feeling so soft and smooth. Have you tried this yet? Let me know in the comments below…

Love Tea? Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea Bags with Chai Spice Honey // Review

-Not sponsored-
A while ago, I was contacted by a company called, Republic of Tea asking if I could try their products and from the moment I clicked on their website, I already knew what tea I wanted to try. Instead of getting a sample, I went ahead and purchased the Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea Bags and Chai Spice Honey for Tea.

I know this is TMI but I need to share: I usually drink pomegranate juice during my period because it calms my cramping but I think this Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea is 10x’s better for my cramping. I’ve noticed from the first sip that it completely soothed my pain and relaxed my mood. I don’t know if everyone will have this same experience but I sure did…
I’ve chosen this tea because of all the healing properties that turmeric and ginger carry; This tea has a light flavor but you can taste the hint of cinnamon and deliciously sweet honey. Each sip I took was savored and enjoyed after adding a teaspoon of their Chai Spice Honey for Tea. It gave it an extra spice of flavor.

Have you tried this tea? I’m obsessed and can’t wait for more flavors to try…

Love always,
Princess Hiyah
I've also received a sample of one Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Single Sips in my package... It adds a hint of sweetness to your water.

How to Use Water Only Washing Method for Hair Growth (PT. 2)

If you’ve read part one of this post, you’re probably wondering, “How can washing your hair with only water, help your hair grow?” I tried to grow my hair out for so many years after it became damaged from a bad relaxer and now that I only wash my hair with water only, my hair has been growing in high speed. It’s because it’s a detox. I believe that hair care product that has chemicals in it can clog up your pores within your scalp. That’s not a fact, it’s just my opinion but I’m living proof that it can help your hair grow.

In the beginning, I used only water to wash my hair but there are many other ways to cleanse your hair regularly that can nourish your hair much better than most shampoos. I shared a list of homemade hair products that can help you with your hair growth journey…
Massage your scalp with coconut oil (or a different oil that you love.) This will loosen any dirt in your scalp and it will stimulate hair growth. Do this right before you wash your hair.
Use coconut milk to cleanse your hair. Coconut milk, in my opinion, can replace shampoo, conditioner and hair mask because it’s ultra cleansing and leaves your hair baby soft.
Create a homemade hair mask. I enjoy using avocados in my hair mask because it’s my favorite ingredient but I also love bananas with are very nutritional for your hair.
Invest in some raw vegan shampoo, mask, conditioners, etc. You can find raw vegan hair care products online easily, but make sure you do some research on the products. Is it beneficial for your hair or is it made with harmful chemicals?
Use a hot oil treatment. Mixing all my favorite oils together (coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, etc.) and heating them up will always make a great mask. Apply it into my hair a let the nutrition soak into my hair will give my hair a boost of hydration. I usually leave this in for more than 30 minutes.
Wash your hair with rice water. I’m obsessed with this natural hair cleanser. It’s an ancient Chinese hair care secret and it’s amazing.
Cleanse your hair with aloe vera gel. Aloe vera is one of the best hair cleansers I’ve ever tried and I highly recommend this to you all.
… and live adventurously. Learn about what you can apply to your hair as a natural cleanser and share them with me. I’d love to learn something new too.

Love always,

Anew Calming Clay Mask Review

Everyone should have a moment of relaxation in their everyday life because our bodies can get tense from being stressed out when we have to get stuff done from our to-do list. You could enjoy a simple relaxation ritual to add to your daily routine or you could do these things whenever you get a little break. There’s always time for “me time.” Never forget it…
For me, I can’t get past a week without giving myself a facial and I was completely excited about Avon’s three  NEW face mask collection. If you are interested in buying the Anew Brightening Clay Mask, Anew Purifying Clay Mask, or Anew Calming Clay Mask, you could go get them today at my Avon boutique. I brought one that I thought would be correct for my skin called, Anew Calming Clay Mask ($16.00).
Because my pores need some extra attention, I thought this clay mask would be perfect for me. It’s made with kaolin clay, which will cleanse your skin from any impurities. This mask can simply remove any excess dirt which leaves my skin feeling so soft, clean and moisturized. And it’s also made to remove any unwanted oils from your skin which is perfect for me since my somewhat oily skin.
The Aloe Vera plant is actually a magical beauty treatment. I used to add some Aloe Vera gel onto a cotton ball and massage the product onto my face which removes dead skin, cleanse my pores while leaving my skin feeling refreshed. Plus the Aloe Vera plant has healing properties, so when I heard this face mask was made with it, I could resist myself from buying it.
I’m overall in love with Anew Calming Clay Mask because it has done nothing but deliver what it has promised me. It’s definitely something that I would repurchase because it has such a refreshing aroma that calms me after a nice long day and it rejuvenates my skin. It also feels so comfortable on my skin that I could help myself but to leave it on a little bit longer than 10 minutes (but you might want to follow direction.)

Winter Wishes

I was very fortunate to have grown up in Wisconsin where I was able to experience the snowy weather. It was always my tradition to walk through the snow and leave footprints even as a young adult. I mean, you’re never too old for snow. Right?

I’ve expressed how much I adored Autumn in a previous blog post because it’s my favorite season of all but I must share what I adore about Winter as well. There is something that is so magical about this season…
Always leave your footprints in the snow… It’s a tradition whenever I see snow, is to leave my footprints. Let your inner child self express itself, especially on a serious adulting day.
Play in the snow at least once in your lifetime. Have you ever made a snowman, had a snow fight or make a snow angel? Add it to your bucket list ASAP… lol I’ve made a few snow angels but the snowman my brother and I built one time wasn’t perfect but that okay.
When in doubt, wear red lipstick for a perfect pout. Okay, let's be honest here. You can wear red lipstick at any time of the year but it’s one of the best looks to rock for Christmas and New Years Eve. Am I right?
It’s the perfect time for hot chocolate because you need to warm up after being outside in the cold. I’m obsessed with hot chocolate with whipped cream on top and a dash of cinnamon. It’s not Winter without hot chocolate.
Give a Secret Santa gift to your loved ones. In 2018, Santa Claus left my family and me festive candy apples and they were delicious. Thank you so much, Santa (me.)
Be a snowflake. Haven't you heard that saying that expresses that we are all like a snowflake? It’s so true. Snowflakes are all unique. Whenever you see snowfall, say, “Thank you.” That’s the higher source reminding you to appreciate what makes you unique. Be a snowflake.
Invest in a few body care products and lip balm. Hand creams, body creams, and lip balm are most important during this time of the year. No one likes dry skin and cracked lips.
It’s a great time to get ready for the New Year. I love to give myself a quote of the year which sets the vibe of the entire year…
Scarfs, boots, coats, oh my… I think the most important accessory is a scarf, followed by some cute boots and a nice jacket or coat. Whatever you need to keep yourself warm.
Protective hairstyles are important all year round… but it’s most important during the winter. I think the cold weather makes my hair dry which causes breakage. I normally braid it, twist it or do very little styling because I need to maintain my hair.

What're your favorite things about Winter? Let me know in the comments below…

Love always,
