Black Owned Business Feature: Garner’s Garden

I had such an amazing weekend! I attended the Fearless Conference and will have a recap on that next Tuesday. Today is another Black Owned Business Feature with Garner’s Garden.



I discovered this company watching a YouTube video by The Minority Report. If you don’t follow her or subscribed to her channel, you need to like now lol. She gives insight on so many products by Black Owned Businesses. She was comparing this company and another Black Owned company that sold oral care products as well. I was so interested in trying these products out and have been using them for the past couple of months.

I was a little scared at first to steer away from the traditional tooth paste and mouthwash that I have been using for years but I wanted to try something different. The ingredients in these oral care products are natural so you know what is in your mouthwash or toothpaste. There is no guessing what a certain ingredient is that you cannot pronounce. Garner’s Garden uses ingredients such as peppermint oil and activated charcoal in their products.

It made sense to purchase the Oral Care trio where you get the Oxy-Pulling Pre Brush Rinse, Natural Mouthwash and Tooth Powder for 22.97.  You start off with the Oxy-Pulling rinse. This is an alternative to the traditional oil pulling which helps draw out bacteria that causes oral diseases. After you using the rinse it is time to brush your teeth. I thought that I would use this like I would normally brush my teeth, use the tooth paste and rinse with the mouthwash. I was really surprised that both of these products are used to together. You would mix both the mouthwash and tooth powder together and brush for 2 minutes.


I will have a full in-depth review of these products but I am not going back to the regular toothpaste and mouth wash I was using before. I really love the results and have noticed a huge different in my oral care. This oral care system is just amazing and I highly recommend this. Garner’s Garden also has hair, body and facial products as well. You can check them out RIGHT HERE!!

Please go support this Black Owned Business and let me know what oral care products you are currently using. See you guys Thursday.

Shopping My Beauty Samples

I was out at the store the other day and Christmas stuff was out already out. I think they are really pushing these holidays too soon now. Summer isn’t even over yet and pumpkin spice everything is out too lol. I’m not going to rush the seasons or holidays, just enjoy them when it is time to.

If you were not following me before the move to WordPress, this series may be new to you. Shopping My Beauty Samples is where I will review all the samples that I have received in my subscription boxes and other places I may receive samples like Sephora. I let you know where it came from, it if is a sample size or full size, the price point and my thoughts on the product. Let’s hop into the reviews.



Lollia At Last Perfumes Shea Butter Hand Cream


Box It Came From: Onyx Box

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size

Price Point: 25.00

Review: I absolutely love the smell of this hand cream!! It is such a fresh and floral scent that is not too strong or overpowering. It really kept my hand very moisturized and soft throughout the day. It is such a lightweight formula but it gets the job done. I’m sure if I would pay this much for a hand cream but I would use this one again.


Library of Flowers The Forest with Green Tea Body Scrub


Box It Came From: Onyx Box

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size

Price Point: Unsure

Review: I will start off by saying that this body scrub and shower gel by this brand are no longer available. I’m not sure if this was a special edition item but I couldn’t find either one on the website. The scent of this scrub was just so refreshing and clean. I love that this was not a harsh scrub but it got the job done. My skin felt so smooth and soft after using this scrub. If I could find this, I would probably purchase this.


Library of Flowers Wildflower and Fern with Coco Butter Shower Gel


Box It Came From: Onyx Box

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size

Price Point: 22.00

Review: Now I was able to find the shower gels on the site for a price but this scent is not available as I stated earlier. The scent of this was so relaxing and just smelled like Spring lol. I really like the gel consistency of this shower gel and it left my skin feeling so soft and moisturized. I don’t think I would spend 22.00 on a shower gel but I did enjoy this one.


Tatcha The Deep Cleanse


Box It Came From: Sephora

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size

Price Point: 38.00

Review: I redeemed this and the next product at Sephora using my points lol. I am starting to become a fan of this brand after trying out a few products. I like discovering new skincare brands and trying things out. So far, nothing from this brand has caused my face to break out lol. I really love this deep cleanser. It left my skin feeling so supple and hydrated. I do spend some coins on my skincare and I would purchase this.


Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat


Box It Came From: Sephora

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size

Price Point: 30.00

Review: It took me a while to use this because at the time I was still wearing my false nails but I am glad I had this in my stash. This polish helps to strengthen and protect your natural nails. I love the hint of pink in the polish for those who love neutral nails. It does strengthen your nails and helps keep them from breaking and chipping. I am not too sure on spending 30.00 on this but I really enjoy this polish.

So that is it for Shopping My Beauty Samples. Have you tried any of these products? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday!
