I try to support small business. Especially when they’re owned by snazzy young black female entrepreneurs. Especially in the face of massive consumerism and ritual holiday competition.
My get-ready ritual is a science. It differs slightly depending on the season and occasion, but by now it’s muscle memory. So when I add a new product, and like it, It becomes canon. I’ve given ButtahBabez a try, and I’m so happy I did!
I discovered this guilt-free, ethically-sourced, homemade beauty boutique on Instagram, and was immediately attracted to the sample sale she was hosting featuribg a new formula; “Black Love”. Samples are my way of avoiding goop-hoarding. Y’all know I’m tryna live free and travel light! ::Points 👆🏾 tagline at top of website::
ButtahBabez did not disappoint!
GIIIRLL… THE SMELL!!
Like Michelle and Barack. Like Claire Huxtable. Like Oprah’s hair. Like the Three Wisemen Combo: Gold, Frankincense, AND Myrrh!
THE TEXTURE CHILE!!
Smoov like a whale’s belly. Whipped to perfection! Like rubbing Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” on your neck, elbows, and shoulders. I caught sight of myself and caught an attitude at my reflection. How dare I wait so long to try her products!?
But don’t you worry your dry lil’ knuckles!
Check her out! Tell her I sent you! Probably won’t get you a better price, but maybe it’ll get me a discount!
If I love you, I can’t let you be a chalkboard. And I do love you!
