Walking into different beauty stores, only to see the lack of products created for black women like me is so frustrating. I admit that I am a bit of a skincare fanatic. I spend most of my time stalking and testing out different beauty brands, hoping to finally find the one product that compliments my skin complexion and type. Although this has been a super long and stressful journey, I've finally found products that work for me. What better way is there for us to celebrate our beautiful black skin than by taking care of it? The best part is that all of these products are cruelty free and will keep your #MelaninOnFleek for under $10!

Because I have sensitive skin, I break out pretty often. I've always been very skeptical of name brand soaps because of the harsh chemicals and fragrances found in them. However, I picked up SheaMoisture's African Black Soap on a whim and was not disappointed. I've been using it for the past week and it's left my skin feeling super smooth. While most people use it to get rid of face acne, I mainly use it as a body wash.
