If you know me, by now you should know that I'm an unrepentant bush girl. I do not know how to apply any kind of makeup, managing weaves is war, to rub cream sef wahala. When moms are complaining about tattoos and piercings, mine is saying "Will the white powder I gave you use itself?" "You didn't comb this hair oh. Ahah mommy, I combed it nah. Okay you didn't comb it well."
I was minding my business quietly when I got a broadcast message about a promo on body oils and I had seen beautiful photos of the sender's supposed clients. Seeing harmattan creeping in, I felt I would need a bottle of oil for the season so I thought to talk to her. She recommended one. I asked her the price. She replied 20k. I asked her how much it is without the promo, she said 30k. I had heard about Egyptian milk and some bleaching people spending 200k monthly on their skin products. Giving the 200k to Hope Orphanage or paying the jamb/waec fees of some indigent students would be impacting lives.
I guess it's one of the secrets of those very fine flawless babes in music videos and tormenting instagram. You'll see some girls and wonder if God made you with made with okrika clay. It's funny, in a sad way, when an undergraduate from an humble background also uses these oils. If you can conveniently afford it, good. I recently found out that a flawless babe uses an expensive body cream. She has her business and works hard. She can choose to spoil herself in whatever way she chooses to. If you however have to sleep around, do some silly things, or have no savings because you want to kill your neighbourhood, you may have a problem.
You can get beautiful skin without breaking a bank. Google is your friend. Perhaps we could talk about oils and a few diy recipes sometime. What do you use on your skin? How much do you, would and would you not spend on a body cream/oil?
And that's my rant. Thank you for reading bloghearts. Have a post or topic for us? You can also share how you spend the holidays. Hit me up email@example.com. Look forward to Esquire's post. Let's remember to be moderate in everything. All my love, Anuoluwapo.
