Herbalife: Problems With Razor Bumps? Try This!

Well, well, well! It’s been a while since I’ve put up a Herbalife video, so here’s my next one!

Back in 2004, I was getting a haircut in the westside of Las Vegas and I told this lady, “excuse me, my faces itches after I shave.”  She said, “you shouldn’t be shaving; our skin is different from white people’s skin!”

I didn’t know what the meant at the time, but she was somewhat right.  She introduced  Skin Tight Extra Strength to me (the one in the photo) and I’ve been using that the past 14 years of my life.  Well, I’ve had this specific bottle for almost 3 years already and it’s probably just a few months away from running out.  With no friends or family willing to send me another bottle, I turned to Herbalife.

Because I’m a proud user of Herbalife, I knew that a scrub-aftershave combination could probably reduce the itching.  Not only did it do just that, but it has cleared up my skin significantly over time.

Here’s the video down below.

I’m Not BLACK & You’re Not WHITE.

Let that phrase sink in it bit.  We have been conditioned and categorized our entire lives like a damn canned food item at our local food market.  Labels – such as disabled, black, white, muslim, buddhist, liberal, conservative….all of which has divided this world completely over the last…150 years? Maybe?

Let’s say you came out the womb today, what would you be? What name would you have? Everything has been given to us from our baby years, to our adult years.

In Thailand, I’m just a “black man.” Therefore, the stereotypes that come with “black men” are: pimp, drug-dealer, thief, convict, hooligan, among so many other names.  However, if I was white, I would be deemed as a holy being that is rich and lovely.

I love what Muhammad Ali said during an interview four decades ago back in England.

“Momma, how come Jesus is white? Blonde hair and blue eyes? Angels are white? How come everyone in the last supper is white?”

“Momma, when we die, we will go to heaven, right?”

Mother answers, “naturally we will.”

Muhammad Ali, “well are there any black angels up there?”

“Oh, I know.  The white angels are up in heaven, too.  So, the black angels are in the kitchen preparing the milk and honey.”

-Tarzan was the king of the jungle in Africa – he was white.

-Miss America was always white.

-The angel fruitcake was the white cake and the devil fruitcake was the chocolate cake.

-The president lives in the white house.

-Snow White was white.

On The Other Hand

-The ugly duckling was a black duck.

-The black cat was bad luck.

-If I’m going to threaten you I’m going to blackmail you.

At the end of the conversation, he told his story about winning an olympic gold medal and went back home standing tall – hoping to get something to eat in a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky where things weren’t integrated back then.  He sat down, ordered….and the woman said, “we don’t serve negroes.”

He replied, “well I don’t eat them either! Go back there and fix me my food!”

*Laughter*

He was thrown out…but the point I’m trying to make is this has been imbedded in our subconscious minds since the picture was invented.  How come every love story revolves around a white character?  Honestly, sit down and think about it.  The Jetsons, the Flintstones, the Rugrats, Doug Funny, Salute Your Shorts, Are You Afraid of The Dark, Nickelodeon was an extremely white network.  However, the only somewhat “black” cartoon I saw while I was young was Bebe’s Kids.  A bunch of bad a$$ African Americans.

I wish I was making this up, but unfortunately….it’s true.

This labelling has to be abolished in humanity wants to move forward.  Is it going to be overnight – NO! It’s going to take an individual sticking up for other individuals.  If you see someone being mistreated anywhere for their gender, creed, color, it’s up to you to butt in and do what’s right.  When these things start to happen, the influences that are left behind on passerbys will stick with them forever.

One person at a time.

Do the right thing.

Herbalife Product Spotlight: Herbal Aloe Cleanser

I’m going to be honest, everyone’s skin, including Caucasians, Africans, Latinos and Asians, is different.  When I was 16 year’s old, I would shave my face with a razor and get an array of bumps across my face until I met this African American woman who said, “black people’s skin isn’t like white people’s skin.”  I was like, “um what does that even mean?”

She went on to give me something called “Skin Tight” which I still use to this day, but it’s not like a typical aftershave (which never worked for me).  Not only does it relieve and reduce the appearance of those unsightly razor bumps, but it also has Leaf Oil and Bark Extract, which probably fights off the itchy feeling I have.

Anyways, fast forwarding to present day, I came across Herbalife’s Aloe Cleanser.  Now, this is a 5 step process, but I had only bought step 1 and step 5 (night repair) at the time.  Although the night repair worked miracles in the overnight repairing of my skin, this moisturizer didn’t greet my skin with open arms.  In fact, it would burn the upper part of my cheek bone after a few days and make it extremely dry, although it’s intended for normal-to-dry skin.

A couple weeks ago I got sick and tired of just having a couple pimples come up, so I started using this again.  This time, I wouldn’t leave it on my face (I didn’t thoroughly read the directions….and it said you should wash your face after use. LOL!) and I would also use it as the first layer for when I shave to help reduce the razor bumps.

Miraculously, not only did the significant reduction happen, but I actually use it everyday after showering, leave it on for a minute or two, then wash it off before applying another Herbalife Product (will write a blog about it later) on my face.  The bumps are gone, my face is brighter, and I’ve seen a decrease in pores on my face, too.

So, with that being said, if you’re trying to find skin care products, which there are a many of them out there, I would seriously and strongly suggest this because the wonders it has worked for me.  I will be doing a few others and testing the before and after (by showing pictures) so you guys can see the results.  Stay tuned for more!
