Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Beauty Line
As you may or may not know I am a natural hair blogger too. I love trying out natural hair products and Mielle Organics does make some bomb products. My friend Tieasha kept encouraging me to try them for my hair and I was sold. It didn't take much convincing for me to purchase their face care line when it launched. Since I am ok in the cleanser department I did not purchase it or the face lotion. What really caught my eye is the Serum and mask.
When I received the products in the mail I was in awe. It was like unwrapping a gift. Isn't that crazy? I paid for these products yet they still felt like a gift. The packaging is so beautiful.
One thing I can say is that I appreciate the fact that they are not a wasteful company. Yes I did have some fun pink shredded paper in there but it was not excessive in comparison to companies that will literally send you a lipstick in a shoe box filled with unnecessary confetti! The products were packed in a compact yet safe from damage manner.
The price range for these products are listed on their website as :
Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Face Serum - $19.99 (I bought mine on sale for $9.99)
Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Hydrating Face Mask - $19.99 (I bought mine during a sale for $9.99)
p.s. they have a sale running now so.....

I believe the rich blackness of this mask is attributed to the charcoal they infused in it. I love this mask because after thorough cleansing one needs some extra moisture especially as I have dry skin on most of my face. My nose area is what really surprised and impressed me after weeks of using this mask. i believe i posted my initial post on my Instagram page on the 7th. I have used it since and here's the thing, I AM HAPPY! I love the fact that you can use it as many times per week as you desire. They recommend 2-3 times but you can go for 4 if you want to. This is a moisturizing mask so you don't really have to worry about your natural oils being stripped to the point where you are now activating too much oil production which leads to a whole mountain of issues no one desires. It comes with a little white applicator spatula for application but i prefer using my fingers or a brush. My first time use was a mess because i was scooping way too much product (it took forever to dry). Hey you live and learn right lol. Just apply a thin layer and watch the magic happen. I have an oily nose but have never really had to deal with black or whiteheads however, i do have some random filth that likes to accumulate in the crease of my corner nose area. I have realized that I no longer have this problem. Using this mask can be messy if you rinse it off instead of wiping it off with a warm wash cloth. I make life hard for myself lol It has a minor scent which is honestly barely noticeable which is great especially for those that are sensitive to smells.

I'm not gonna lie y'all! That pearly look is what made me want and crave this product. It just looks like it will transform your skin in a heartbeat doesn't it? I apply this immediately to my dry skin after I put wipe/rinse off my mask. I lightly massage it into my skin and let it do its magic then later add a moisturizer or whatever needed but this is after I let the serum sit a while and just work on beautifying me. Now, the scent for this serum is a sweet pomegranate and honey (it smells true to its name). They advise 2-3 drops but we all know I am a rebel so I do about 6-8 (I have a lot of skin to cover plus I also apply it to my neck so....). It applies smoothly and the glow is amazing just on it's own. Make sure you watch my video below to see it in action. You do feel an instant somewhat firming of your skin once the serum dries. As time has passed, I can attest to the radiant glow that my skin has been serving the public lately. I do feel as though the texture on my cheekbones has diminished a bit but I'm not entirely sure if it's the serum.
These products do give a radiant glow! Enjoy my video below #bars:
