In May of this year – I was sent some products from My Natural Addiction – now named Aloha Nani.  Aloha Nani is run, owned and operated by Breanna Hamilton, a young Indie Business owner who makes products like Eye Shadows and skin care items.  The item I received was the Juju Cream.  It was suggested to me by Breanna because she had watched one of my videos where I mentioned that I had eczema and that I used Organic Virgin Unrefined Coconut Oil as my Moisturizer to keep my face looking well and eczema at bay.My original review of the product was fairly positive.  There were a few things that did not work for me, but at the same time, as I mentioned in my video – I have very sensitive skin and my skin is very finicky when it comes to certain products.  Even if the product is all natural, I can sometimes have a reaction I was not expecting.  It’s a problem I do regret having because I truly have to be selective when shopping for bath & body products.  That’s why I chose coconut oil and have really been using it consistently for the last year and a half.  I have even had to change up my skincare routine – you can read about that here: 

The Day before I applied the Cream
If I do not get a bad reaction from a product, I may discontinue using it for a little while and take up using it again after a month or so or a few months.  I did so with this product (the Juju Cream) because it is “Cooler Weather” season here and it’s when my skin always needs much more moisture than normal.  Since I had last tried the product in May – I figured it would be a great time to try out the product in a different season to see if it would work for me.The product still did not have any scent (as I stated in my original review), but that was not a problem.  It still had it’s nice thick consistency I like and I lathered it on my face the day after the photo above was taken.  I used this photo to provide a comparison between what my face looked like prior to applying the cream.  The photo above was taken about 24 hours before I applied Aloha Nani’s Juju Cream.  The image was taken with my camera phone in my car.
The photo above was also taken the day before the cream was applied.  I took this in the same area as I took my “after the cream” photos and it was also taken with my camera phone.  Now – some may argue that I have foundation on… but if you have been following me a while, you will know I do not use it.  Thanks to a very good skincare routine and eliminating most face makeup products, my skin has really been pretty awesome lately.

The photos above are taken after I applied the cream.  I used my camera phone to take these photos as well, but as you can see – the lighting is a tad bit different because I took the image in a different area.  I applied the cream in the early afternoon and noticed less than an hour later that my skin felt like it was itchy.  I monitored my face to find that after a few hours, my eczema was starting to flare up.  I instantly washed my face and applied my coconut oil (which is my daily moisturizer) to my face.  While my Eczema flare up was still prominent – within 3 days it had cleared up pretty much completely.   My skin is still a bit sensitive but for the most part – it is gone.I know I have sensitive skin, which is why I ALWAYS try my best to try out a product for skincare through different seasons of the year.  It will allow me to really figure out whether or not a product works well for me or if it only works in certain seasons.  Prior to trying out the Aloha Nani Juju Cream, I had not changed up or added any new products to my skincare routine – so it lead me to think that the cream had been the reason for the flare up.   It was the only thing that I had changed up in a while and the reaction and itchy feeling I was getting happened very quickly after application.I think the Juju Cream from Aloha Nani may be awesome for many – but unfortunately, after trying the product again, it is not something I will be using.  I just can’t have my skin break out like this, it takes so much to get it back into order because the flare up causes redness and almost like a rash that winds up turning my skin scaly and very very unattractive.  It takes a few days before it is soft and equally toned once again.   Unfortunately the product is just not for me.  While I do attribute most of it to my sensitive skin, I would not use the product again.

I had been asked a few times by Subscribers and Readers why I had not started on my Halloween Makeup tutorials and this is the reason.   I haven’t worn any makeup in a week honestly, because I didn’t want it to trigger any more reactions and delay my Halloween Makeup Tutorials any longer.

Aloha Nani offers a wide range of products on the site and you may quite possibly find one that suits your perfectly.  Just because I have a reaction to a product, does not mean that it will not work wonders for other people.  This is just my experience and opinion and I wanted to follow up my original review with my findings.
