Throwback to when i was so excited to receive my order from anike herbal products.
Fast forward to my writing this post, I’m not so impressed. I got my order 2 days after payment, i was super excited and i spent a lifetime in the bathroom.
Okay… Maybe the reason i wasn’t so satisfied is because i had such high expectations but what to do?! I’m always like that when i get new stuffs to try.
The products look smaller than they appear on instagram.
The glow soap was filled to the brim but i sure knew it won’t last me up to 2 months. I don’t know if i drink soap o but they just dont last. A bar of Dudu osun lasts for 2 weeks max… Don’t judge me. I loved the fresh feeling after use but my face used to get this squeaky clean feel (which is a turn off for me, feels like my face is being strip off its moisture) but i just used the glow cream which i mixed with the brightening serum. I agree with Mindofamaka that it makes one feel like you are a freaky person mixing bleaching cream. The smell of the glow cream wasn’t it but it was bearable. When i sent a message complaining about the smell which i felt was a combo of Pinpop stick sweet and mistmag, i was told it was just the strawberry smell. Was like ‘Oh thats strawberry???!’ But how was i supposed to know, the ingredients used weren’t stated on the containers. I really think it would be nice if you know what you are applying on your skin. I stopped using the glow cream after about 2 weeks, I don’t know why i stopped, Started using coconut oil as a moisturiser after the glow soap so no complaints there.
And for the product i was really looking forward to; The Coconut oil cleanser…
This product appears to be the miracle product for clearing spots. It made me really dark in 3 weeks. I was told to get the aloe gel or overnight lemon mask to counter the darkening effect. It had a grainy texture and made my skin so smooth after use.
I got a free sunscreen which i haven’t tried yet. I use the almond oil for my hair right after shampooing or co washing. I let it sit for a while and then rinse out. I have no complaints at all for the almond oil, infact i love that it has real almonds in it. I used the hair growth twice only because it smeared all over my pillow and still would end up all over my face (I really need to get that satin cap).
I would love to make another purchase because i know it requires patience while using organic products. Sadly, i can’t for now because there has been an increase in the price of the products and i would have to break my piggy bank to get them.
On the brighter side, I got to purchase a new brand of products when i attended the hair meet up organised by coilyheadofhair. Need i mention that i got a free bottle of afrobynature_hairvitality’s detangler co wash conditioner. I am loving how soft it makes my hair feel…
I would give a proper review of the new stuff i got soon.
Everything written here are solely my opinion. It might work for jack and fail for jill. It all depends on our skin types and lifestyles.
