2014 Favorites!

 Hi guys! I know I am super late with this blog post but I have been wanting to rave about these products for quite some time. These products have been my holy grail for 2014. They consist of beauty, skin care and hair care. I love sharing my favorite products with you all because you guys constantly ask about my skin and hair. So lets get right to it!

I have finally found my saving grace! Thanks to some research and my VA Dermatologist I have finally found a skin care regimen that works for me. My skin is always giving me problems but since using these new products for the year of 2014  my skin has cleared up. My skin care regimen is very simple. I use the jojoba oil from Trader Joe's as a makeup remover. I know it may sound weird but it truly works! I use the Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser twice a day to cleanse my skin. The vitamin E oil is used as my moisturizer. This leaves my skin super soft and glowing. I included a photo of my skin freshly washed and moisturized this morning without makeup for you guys :)

Now for the fun. I have been loving these beauty products so much! I am not one to wear makeup everyday but when I do it is VERY minimal. These products include the NYX Shine Killer primer, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow PomadeBenefit Cosmetics Gimme BrowBare Minerals Well-Rested concealer powder, and Maybelline Fit Me foundation stick. All of these products have been used in the above photo. I also used my favorite foundation- Bare Minerals Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. These products give me a natural glow that I absolutely love. If you are looking to try out a natural make up look, I would definitely recommend all of these items. 

Lastly is my new hair care regimen. It really isn't a new regimen but I have added a few new products to my old regimen. The Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque has been a great product for my weekly deep conditions. I mix this masque with my African Royale Hot Six Oil and section my hair. I leave the deep condition in my hair for about an hour under a shower cap. The Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In-Conditioner is my favorite product to revive any old hair style. I literally just spray my hair with this and shake or scrunch my curls and go. It is super easy and it smells amazing! I also have been loving the Hairfinity hair vitamin pills. I have been using them for quite some time but I need to seriously rave about them! I am sure you all have noticed the tremendous growth of my hair the past few months. Most of my growth is due to the hair vitamins, consistency with my hair regimen and drinking lots of water. I encourage you all to try them out if you are looking for fast healthy hair growth. 

Well, that includes all of my 2014 favorites. I will be using all of these products in 2015 as well but if anything changes in my regimens I will be sure to share them with you! I have included links to all of the products mentioned if you all are interested. 
Talk to you soon!


  1. So what do you moisturizer your hair with throughout the week to keep your hair from getting dry? Also do you do any one a week scrubs or mask to keep your face clear? What body moisturizer or moisturizers do you use on your body because from your summertime IG post it always seemed like your body had beautiful glow to it. Also what are your favorites frangrances or frangrance because you look like you smell good! lol

    1. I have a night time and morning routine for my hair which helps retain daily moisture. I will do an intensive Hair Regimen blog for you all very soon, so be sure to look out for it. I do not do any weekly facial scrubs. I tried a few from Lush but I had a very bad reaction to them. I have a post on those products as well. If you are interested, you can find them under the "Beauty" category. I love love love body moisturizers but my skin is super sensitive so I only use a DIY body oil to moisturize. It leaves my skin super soft (I can also include a blog on this fairly soon). I am not very interested in body fragrances but I use Dove body wash and it smells amazing!

      I truly appreciate your comment and please stay tuned for more on Broke City Grl.

      p.s. I will be starting a Youtube Channel that will include a lot of what you have asked. So be sure to look out for that too love! :)
