  • Product Review: VBar – The Feminine Hygiene Bar Soap

    Okay, so it’s been a long while since I’ve done a post on feminine hygiene. That’s because it’s been a long time since I’ve used a product that I can honestly say works wonders and is a healthy alternative to the chemical-laden options currently on store shelves. My new obsession is the V-Bar. This unique vagina soap is made with all-natural ingredients including goldenseal and glycerin, this alcohol-free and fragrance-free vagina soap leaves you feeling clean and refreshed without disrupting the natural pH balance.

    Not only does the V-Bar help maintain proper vaginal hygiene, it also helps prevent yeast infections, bacteria vaginosis, urinary tract infections, itching, discharge and other uncomfortable feminine issues. The way I became introduced to this amazing product was due to Brown Girl Beauty Collective. Kim, the co-Founder and I were doing research for our upcoming October series on vaginal hygiene and Kim mentioned a local Atlanta woman who made vayjay jay soap. I couldn’t believe it! I had never heard of such a thing. Well, I went to Google to see if I could find the mysterious vagina soap lady and lo and behold, she was real.

    Her name is Tanya Tibbs and she is a natural hair care specialist with over 25 years experience. She transitioned into holistic healing and wellness with the development of the VBar which was initially created for a family member who was having feminine issues. Fast forward several years later and she’s making her highly sought after and praised vagina soap for women everywhere. She will be speaking at our Brown Girl Beauty Collective “The Love Below” vaginal hygiene event in Atlanta in October. Super excited!

    I tried out the soap and I am in love! It lathers up nicely but doesn’t irritate the delicate vaginal area at all. It actually left my skin feeling soft and smooth which was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend this product for women of all ages and backgrounds. It’s time to ditch the highly fragranced and oftentimes toxic feminine hygiene products that we have become used to and start heading towards natural alternatives that won’t compromise our health and well-being.

  • Do-It-Yourself Winter Skin Care Recipe – Cucumber & Honey Mask

    DIY Skincare for Winter is Easy, Fun and Affordable!

    Whether we encounter the artic blasts of cold air or the dehydrating effects of in-door heating, our poor skin goes through so much turmoil during the winter season it makes perfect sense why our skin isn’t at its best. With so many different products on the market and expensive services available, I felt the need to break down how simple skin care can really be so you don’t go broke trying to care for your skin.

    You can make so many of your favorite skin care product right at home with items found in your local grocery or health food stores. Here are three of my favorite recipes that you can make this winter for skin that will have people wondering what’s your secret?

    Cucumber & Honey Mask - This easy to make hydrating mask offers several benefits including toning, moisturizing, lightening and clarifying. The all-natural ingredient list makes this something you can make without batting an eyelash. You probably have all the ingredients in your refridgerator right now!

    • ½ Banana
    • ½ Cucumber
    • 1 Tbsp. Honey
    • 4 Tbsp. Lemon juice

    Take a bottle of honey and make it smooth and easy to work with by microwaving or heating it up in a warm bottle that is resting on top of simmering warm water. While your honey is loosening up, add your banana and cucumber to your food processor or blender and blend into a puree. Add lemon juice and honey to the puree until you have created a paste. Apply the mask to freshly washed skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Remove with warm washcloth. Repeat once a week for optimal results.
