MaroonedOnAnIsland here, for the not-exactly-Thursday Guest Post!
I originally wanted this post to focus on eyebrows. I recently found this wonderful way to use powder on your eyebrows, especially if you get oily or live in a humid area.
Instead, I will be writing a review of Haus of Gloi, for very good reason.
They have cured my KP!!
For those who don’t know, KP stands for Keratosis Pillaris, a condition of the skin that causes tiny, angry red dots, that looks like a rash. This typically presents on the back of your arms or on your upper legs. I personally have had this since about the age of 12 or 13, showing up on both my arms and upper legs.
And I have tried everything. Believe me – lotion with AHAs, AHAs on their own, BHAs, or pretty much any kind of actives, fancy lotion, cheap lotion, lotion with fun botanicals (like borage!), and many other things.
I was pretty much set in the idea that my KP wouldn’t go away. So when I purchased the Haus of Gloi lotion in Aether (their name for their unscented products), it didn’t even occur to me that this would do anything for me! Needless to say, I am very happy with this product. SO happy, in fact, that I would go as far as saying that I will probably never buy a different lotion again.
I didn’t even notice at first. When you have a skin condition for so long, you almost forget about it to the point that you don’t even look at it anymore. So it surprised me when my mother pointed out that my arms weren’t all angry anymore!
The rash is gone, the bumps are 95% gone, and it is no longer red! I AM SERIOUSLY RAVING!! This is awesome!!!
Now if only it could do something with the acne I keep getting… (Isn’t that supposed to be only for teens?!)
On another note, I also bought the hair oil from Haus of Gloi, in the Litchi Milk Tea scent. ANOTHER RAVE HERE!! I have low porosity, 2C/3A curly hair, and this stuff is amazing! Smell is great, and my hair is so soft! It hasn’t looked this pretty in a long time.
Needless to say, Haus of Gloi has my wallet. I will be repurchasing the hair oil and the lotion, many, many times.
Haus of Gloi, you done good.
