Coco- Whip Mask Review

Over the weekend, I had a chance to finally try this face mask. Now, I usually don’t do face masks because I don’t want to break out, but the real coconut pieces sold me into buying it, that and the awesome price point of six dollars. It usually sells for fourteen dollars a jar.   

I love that this mask has real coconut in it (Excuse the big chunks hanging by my nose lol) that’s one of the things that caught my eye was the coconut pieces. It also has coconut oil in it which is one of the natures most powerful ingredients. Coconut Oil has so much fatty acid, that it is great for moisturizing your skin and making it completely soft. 

I put this on twenty mins before bed and about five minutes after applying the mask my face began to itch a little. I didn’t know if that’s what it was supposed to do or not, but I kept it on and fifteen minutes afterward I blotched it off and then rinsed my face. 

Once my face was dry it did feel really soft and smooth. Overall I would give it a nine out of ten only because of the itchy feeling I received while wearing the mask. I haven’t broken out, but I just didn’t like the slight itchy feel.

Would I buy this product again probably so not at the original price, but definitely on sale yes. I hope you all enjoyed my honest review. If you all have any questions about this product email me or hit me on my social media pages.

                 Until next time Koko!

Like a Boss movie review.

This past weekend I treated myself to the like a boss movie premiere. It was nice to get out of the house no kids, no boyfriend just me.

I was pumped to see Rose Byrne and Tiffany Haddish do a comedy movie together. I adore them both they have really good chemistry together.

Below, I’m going to share what I liked and didn’t like about the movie and in the end, I’m gonna give you a starred review between 1-5 of my overall liking of the Like a Boss.

What I liked…

  • I loved that it had 3 strong female characters that I adore in it.
  • It shows friendship in one of the best lights.
  • Rose Byrne doing a comedy movie
  • Loved the ending which I’m not gonna spoil.

It showcased how big industries corporations can get over on small business especially if you don’t know the ins and outs of a business.

What I didn’t like…

  • It was pretty short compared to some movies it was an hour and twenty-three minutes. They rushed the plot or it would have been way better.
  • Salma Hayek, I hated her role in this movie she was a mean bitch.

Overall I would say check it out if you have the money, if not it can wait. My rating between 1-5 stars would be ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ (3) out of 5.

What makes you a boss????

Me, I work hard every day at my day job and my blog, I hope you all enjoyed this review. Comment below and tell me what makes you a boss.

Until next time ~koko~

Friday Mood (first of 2020)

2020 is here in full swing and it’s like 70 degrees in January wtf. Nonetheless, I am grateful to be alive and see a new year and a new day.

Here are five things that had me in a mood this week……

Australia Fires: This is just devastating not only are thousands of people’s homes burned to the ground, but about a billion animals have died from the fires. Some species are in great danger of being extinct. Don’t even get me started on the pollution of the air we all breathe here on earth. It affects us all one way or another. 🔥 🔥 🔥

Bare Mineral: This foundation I have been using is heaven on earth. It’s not dry you don’t need a lot to do a full face 😍 I use cocoa for my skin. If you like make- up to try this brand.

Like A Boss Movie: The movie premiered Wednesday but I can’t check it out until this weekend. Hopefully, I can get one of my girls to go with me.

Come Thru Video: Summer Walker has another hit on her hands. Not only did she recreate a classic song by USHER but she made it fit her brand. The song has been stuck on my mind all week.

Harry and Meghan: Wednesday, shit hit the fan the Dutch and Duchess of Sussex have decided to step down from royal duties. Now y’all know I’m not a royal expert but I don’t blame them one bit Meghan has been treated bad by the media since she has been engaged to Harry.

What’s one thing that had you in a mood his week??? Share below!

Until next time ~koko~

National Soup Month

Did you know that January was national soup month? I didn’t, but I see why. Lots of people are sick with the cold and flu this time of year. I Know when I’m sick a good bowl of soup always helps to nourish me back to health and it’s like the easiest thing to get down a sore throat.

Below I listed a few soups I enjoy either when I’m sick or just on those cold winter days when I want some comforting food.

Chicken Noodle: It’s a classic who doesn’t love shredded pieces of chicken and thick egg noodles.

Beef Stroganoff: I fell in love with this soup the first time I had it at the hospital beef and egg noodles smothered in that savory sauce yum.

Vegetable Beef: Hearty chunks of beef surrounded by lots of yummy veggies in a tomato broth, I make a pretty good one version.

Corn Chowder: Corn is one of my favorite veggies I eat it on a regular basis, mix it in with some chowder and I’m sold. Panera Bread has an amazing summer corn chowder.

Strawberry Soup: I was first introduced to this soup on my first cruise last year it tastes just like strawberries. Definitely worth a try.

Broccoli and Cheddar: Another soup that I eat on a regular. I love broccoli and cheese so it is only right.

Minestrone: This all vegetarian dish is amazing I can eat two big bowls full especially the Olive Garden version.

If you haven’t tried any of these soups try one in 2020 I’m sure you will enjoy any of them.

Until next time ~koko~

True Friend

© Ashley Campbell

A friend is like a star that twinkles and glows
Or maybe like the ocean that gently flows.
A friend is like gold that you should treasure 
And take care of forever and ever.
A friend is like an angel that is there to guide you.
A friend is someone you can trust out of a few.
A friend is more than one in a million. 
They are one in a ca-zillion,
And you, my friend, are very special
and so it is official.

Elf 16hr Camo Concealer

Hey y’all! Today I’m coming to you with a review on elf’s sixteen-hour camo concealer. Well first let me say I have never used concealer before I usually go for a little eye shadow and lipgloss and I’m on my way out the door. I’m not high maintenance at all.

My first impression of this concealer was that it was a nice size tube but I thought the shades were a little too light for my complexion. They actually were pretty on point. I received the deep cinnamon tube and the rich chocolate tube. My favorite of the two is the rich chocolate but I do like the cinnamon as well.

The product lasted the whole sixteen hours for me. I went to work, did some errands, and indulged in some family  activities and this concealer did pretty well.

The formula they used for this was amazing I don’t think they should change anything at all and the price point of five dollars is great  for the quality you get. I received my products complimentary courtesy of at influencer and elf, All opinions are my honest reviews.

I will definitely be purchasing this product in the near future. Have you all tried this concealer yet? If so what’s your favorite thing you like about it? If not comment below if you would like to try it, I may do a give away for one of you.

Any questions you have for me on the concealers feel free to comment below.

until next time –Koko
