Words to live by, "If it doesn't feed you, don't water it." - Me

Juanita Gartley

No make-up. Just all beautiful skin.

Elise Nicole

Nai can you add an “If it doesn’t feed you, don’t water it” hoodie/t-shirt to your merch??

T Coleman

How long should you use one serum before testing out the other, before ultimately layering them?
If the skin is great with each, can you mix the two together that were tested individually and apply at once, rather than layering?

Chris Bartley

You had me at the first product. Love your videos! Keep them coming?


Can we do a skin care routine for hyperpigmentation?

Hira M

Please review products to lighten dark and sensitive areas...esp. the lady parts?

Reverence Matukala

Can you please do a review on Moonxcosmetics Rose Galore ?

Rea Nolan

Hey Nai! Love your channel, love your 60-second oil cleanse rule, love your 15-minute occasional oil massage / cleanse, love YOU. re: oil cleansing - do you have any opinion on Black Seed Oil (manufactured for skin)? I picked up a bottle from a brand called Woolzies and find it 'medicinal' in a good way - good antibacterial properties, nowhere near as harsh as tea-tree oil. Would this be a suitable oil for oil cleansing / skin massage for skin that is prone to breakouts, but also dehydrated? Thanks so much. xo

Shatoya Mariee

Do you recommend any dermalogica serums? I’m trying to stick to one brand ? lol

Judith Strachan

Hello do you have an eye routine

Heimy Esparza

I love your vibe and the way you carry yourself ?? do you have any recommendations for books that might help me get a better and deeper understanding of skin care? I’m a cosmetologist but my true passion is skin.

Jessica Eusebio

How often should you steam? Is it true steaming is good for product absorption? If so how much is too much?


What do you think about skin shaving/dermaplaning? Is it just a fad or is it beneficial?

Latrice Jackson

Hi! I have a question: is there a possibility that toners aren't for everyone? My skin tends to breakout after I use a toner, so I don't use one most of the time but I want a good toner to help minimize my pores and help with hyper pigmentation.

Rheana Worme

First can I just say you have the best hair style in this video. I'm obsessed!! So beautiful ?


Jesus Christ is coming back. He loves you dearly and calls for you to come back home to Him!
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
He calls for repentance and belief in the Gospel. It’s time to fully surrender to Christ. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.


What are your thoughts on the No Gender Specific serum?

Bianca R

Candace Baah

Paris Roam

Yaaas. Who else is glowing up this quarantine?


would I use the Dr.Jarts after polyglutamic acid one?


Literally brought three new serums thanks to your recommendation ?

Emma Cee

Wow I really thought HA was that girl when it comes to hydration.


Two questions,can you use glycolic acid(the Ordinary) and retinol again the same time? And is there a product that is kind of an all in one for the lazy guy/gal? My husband doesn’t even moisturize,I need something that does multiple things in one cause I’ll be lucky to get him to put on one product.


Do you recommend heat or cold to assist in absorption of serum

Jordyn Sturdivant

Thank God I’m getting the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta serum in my FabFitFun box! I almost didn’t select it but decided I “might” need it ??I also got 2 bottles of black girl sunscreen got $7 each from their add on sale. They came thru with the fall box!

Priya B

Can you do a video on exfoliants in general? I know its a broad topic but I get so confused


Is it necessary to let your face dry to 15-30min before you put retinol on and another 15 after you put it on before putting on water based serums? I heard using on skin not completely dry will cause irritation as it will sink deeper.

A. W.

Could you PLEASE do a video on silicones in skincare? I am SOOO torn on if they’re okay or not (and if they’re actually “plastic”, biodegradable, clog/suffocate the skin, etc.), every place on the internet has a different answer. I don’t want to waste money on the wrong product and I really trust your knowledge! Thank youuuu
