I'm more than just another beauty blogger, I'm the girl that doesn't fit the status quo. I'm plus sized, I'm African-American mixed, I have freckles, hooded eyes, oily skin, and have a tell it like it is mentality. I am unapologetically ME.
This product just came out on April 9th. It's suppose to be new and improved than the older version of JBCO.
The company says that:
It is the darkest Jamaican Black Castor Oil because the beans are roasted longer which produces more Ash Content. More ash content increases the effectiveness of the oil. Therefore, it will strengthen and increase the length of our hair faster. Also Sunny Isle Castor is the ONLY Jamaican Black Castor Oil that comes in a safety sealed bottle for protection.
Of course I will be trying this product out.
JBC Distributors is now under new management and they are suppose to currently (4/14/10) have about 6,000 units in stock and ready to ship. I know some people have have problems with shipping and backorders in the past but according to the company these new units are ready to go.
They are carrying 4 new versions of JBCO (Not longer Tropical Isle, the are Sunny Isle):

I used my mole to kind of track how much my hair grew. It seems that I have gotten about 5 inches of growth in 6 months. This is pretty good for me since I don't get much growth during the summer months, my hair grows the most during November-February months.
Now during this hair challenge I had to ease up on the JBCO because I found out that I'm allergic to the Extra Dark Formula and that was the only bottle I had left to use. So I only added my JBCO to my Organix conditioner and would leave a little in after I washed with it. I had to stop using the Extra Dark JBCO on my scalp and ends because it would seriously break my skin out with painful sores and pimples. Using it in just my conditioner was enough for me to reap the benefits of it.
I did however purchase the JBCO Shampoo and washed my hair once a week with it. It doesn't strip my hair and left it soft. For one month I tried the Bee Mi…
OCC Lip Tar in Mannequin, Rollergirl and Kimber
I picked up a few OCC Liptars at the IMATS Show yesterday. I also purchased some of the new lip liners that I learned about last year by attending the PHAMExpo.
These new 2014 liptars are amazing. They are a little different then the traditional Matte Liptars, not just because of the new logo and color but the opaqueness is different to me. I do love them and each one will be used this year constantly because they are truly gorgeous.
On the OCC website liptars are $18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz. as well as on Sephora's website. However if you're a professional makeup artist you can apply for a Pro account at OCC and Nigel's Beauty Emporium. At IMATS I was able to get these liptars for $10 each.
