This week’s P.O.P weekly is from Folie Apothecary by Nikisha Brunson. I discovered Nikisha Brunson a few years ago as I was searching YouTube for videos on natural hair. I came across the Urbanbushbabes channel that she shares with Cipriana Quann. Urbanbushbabe’s informative videos helped me during my transitional stages of going natural. They also featured a few videos on their natural skin care regimens where they recommended using natural products. When Nikisha launched her own natural skincare line Folie, in October of last year I was super excited because I was looking to transition to more natural products. During her launch of Folie, Nikisha mentioned that she suffered from some of the same things I do with my skin like acne, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. With that in mind, I decided I definitely wanted to try Folie but just wasn’t sure where to start.
I headed over to Etsy where her products are available for purchase and wrote to her explaining my skin type and my goals with my skincare. She wrote me back the same day and recommended her Prickly Pear Face Serum. Excited to get my regimen started I purchased the serum the same day! Yes! Jasmine “Ms.Frugal Queen” lol bought something without hesitation! Glad to say it was worth every penny! Check out all the details on Folie Apothecary below as well as my mini review on the serum!
Folie (Foh-lee) is the french word for madness. Folie apothecary is 100% natural and handcrafted in small batches by me! Launched in October 2015, I’m committed to bringing you the healthiest hair and skincare products possible.
