MAVEN BEAUTY: BAHI COSMETICS IS THE BEAUTY BRAND TO WATCH
Yes, I have been MIA from the blogging scene but I'm back!! I have been making moves in 2018 and I can't wait to share some accomplishments with you soon (details later). I'm not sure if it's this cold weather, but I've been feeling uninspired AF on outfit posts. I plan on coming back with a bang, posting twice a week. I have some great buys, outfit inspirations, and beauty tips. So enough chatting, let's get into my life changing beauty find...
A year ago, due to stress I had some breakouts that left me with some discolorations. Now, I'm a biggie on having a facial routine, but for some reason these bad boys always seem to pop up. I came across a review of a serum that worked miracles (nothing new). Having sensitive skin and combination skin, I'm nervous as hell to put anything new on my face. A year pass and still I heard rave reviews of this little serum.
I finally built the courage to order the $20 1 oz serum bottle and see if the hype was true. I must say, this one of the best decisions EVER!!! I'm sure everyone is like.... Please just tell us the name of this serum. The product that will change your skin and maybe your life is called Sunflower Sweets Serum by Bahi Cosmetic.
It seems that this little hidden treasure just keeps getting better.
Before I go into details about this product, this company is all #blackgirlmagic and more!
"We at Bahi were tired of seeing women of color placed in a single category by so many brands. So we decided to create something that truly caters for everyone; every shade and every skin type is taken into account. Inspired by famous brands such as Tatcha, Caudalie, Sunday Riley, Peter Thomas Roth & Farmacy, Bahi took all of the magic they worked with and created their own version which was inexpensive but most of all... acidic free."
"Our owner's background in esthetics and personal research, as well as her familial support system of herbal doctors and dermatologists, led her to focus on cruelty-free, acid-free, kind to skin formulas. Like Grandmother Bahi taught her: if you can't pronounce the ingredient or purchase it in a normal store, it shouldn't be on your skin, said Danielle Bahi, Founder of Bahi Cosmetics ."

The crazy part is this young girl is only 22 years old. Wow! Great inspiration! If something doesn't work... create your own shit. I'm sure your curious about the serum? Bahi's unique Sunflower Sweets Serum is filled with essential oils that are great for scarring, hyperpigmentation and controlling acne.
No worries if this is not a skin concern for you, please visit Bahi. care or find them on Instagram (Bahi) to learn about other great products and testimonials. Me? I'm hooked. I think I will be trying her Galore's Garden lotion next. Check back in for before and after photos of my transforming glowing skin. Until then here is a current photo of my skin with only concealer under my eyes (need a magic serum for circles).
