I love that the Naturally Curly team has dedicated this little corner of a forum about natural hair to skincare ect, but I am on the search for a little more. I have been so happy since embarking down the path of using natural products for my hair and my children's hair. I love what I'm seeing in all of our hair, but now I would like to do the same for my skin.

Are there any forums like naturally curly dedicated to skincare?

Thanks in advance fellow curlies!

    I second www.essentialdayspa.com

    It is a wonderful site. IMO it is the skincare equivalent of nc.com

    Another bonus about EDS is that you are rewarded for contributing on the forum. It is a bit of a pain in the butt when you first join, because they limit your posts to 5 per day and you can't post links. Once you hit 50 posts, you can pretty much do what you want. They also give you a discount reward for participating on the forum. It starts at 5% and works it way up to 20%. I'm not sure how long it takes to get up that high. There seems to be a lot of people on the site with 10% and 15%, not so many with 20%.

    And .... they also draw a weekly $50 gift certificate for participating on the forum. I can speak to it being legit - I actually won the GF this week !!
    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

    Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
