Though many movie critics and general spectators view Tyler Perry’s latest “play turned movie”, Temptation, overly dramatic for a melodramatic film, I differ in opinions. The beginning of the movie was less than slow, compared to other Perry hits. Perry primes the audiences with the perspective “You never know what you have until it is gone” cliché proverb. He chooses the main character to deliver this concept to the viewers, whom are the eyes and ears of the main character’s client, making the audience a third person in the movie. Because of the audience’s third wall, as filmmakers like to call it, the main character refers to herself in third person.

The subtle inclusion of time jumps was just enough to sink the message and story line Perry was producing to the viewers’ attention.

Yes, the film was dramatic, but you should know what you are diving into upon ticket retrieval. Its Tyler Perry for heaven’s sake. However, the drama is reality for most people in urban communities. Correct, I said urban, because that is where most of the relatable incidences that occurred in this film befall in communicates such as those. No, the people in the film were not based in that sort of environment, but at an elementary level, it is easy for the viewers to detect the “struggle” the characters were facing. All too many times, people from urban settings fall prey to Perry’s painted predicament in the film. These same real people can never seem to build up the fortitude to crawl out.
This Perry drama is telling the story for minorities out there trying not to settle. For those of you, who view the film; will understand what I am trying to get across without telling the film line.

I personally loved the way Perry set up the film. After taking one film class (all you need is one to be an expert lol), I understand the making of a good film. The 2 climatic moments of the film were not as predictable as I expected them to be but rather empathetic and captivating.
As for the characters… clap clap bravo, because both men and women would appreciate the eye candy presented on screen just like any other Perry production. There were even cast members outside of Perry’s typical casting line, which I believe brought more life to the film.

If you are looking for a film that will purge genuine tears without a typical ending, don’t resist the temptation this time to view Temptation.

Product: Ishimma Papaya Lime Conditioner
Ishimma, a new rising product line, sent me a couple of goodies to review. The first product I encountered was the conditioner. I decided to include this into my regimen as an after wash moisturizer. This product can be used as both a wash out or leave-in conditioner.

Price: 10.99 USD

Their Claims : If you’re looking for a natural conditioner for dry hair, you’ve come to the right place!  This Papaya Lime Conditioner moisturizes, conditions, and nourishes the hair with wonderful oils such as avocado and moisturizing fruit extracts.  Formulated to make for easier combing and styling, it is also safe for co-washing, overnight conditioning, and general conditioning. Fortifies and strengthen the hair strand with hydrolyzed protein.  After just a few minutes of having this conditioner on your hair, it is softer and more manageable.  For ladies with relaxed hair, you’ll experience silkier, bouncier hair after one use.  Believe us, your hair will thank you!
 Ingredients( all are not listed because my letters rubbed off): Water, Aloe Vera (moisturizer), Glycerin (humectant), Protein, Avocado oil (conditioner), Wheat Germ oil (conditioner), Peppermint oil (astringent/scalp soothing), Rosemary oil (scalp stimulant/growth), Eucalyptus oil (stimulator/growth ); Papaya, Lime, and Hibiscus* Extracts, Vitamin E (anti-oxidant/conditioner) *Organic
The consistency is a mixture of creamy and watery. It makes for a “Custard like” consistency in my opinion.
I personally liked the smell of the conditioner. Though I have no idea what papaya is supposed to smell like, however the lingering scent was pleasant. There was definitely I tangible smell of lime in my opinion which was easy on the nose.

My overall thoughts: I used this product for a course of two weeks. As stated above, I included the conditioner as an after wash conditioner, not compromising the products properties with any other product. I wanted true results so the Ishimma line was the only products I used. Because the consistency was a bit on the light side, I had to use more than the recommended amount, however their oil(review bellow) I used to seal helped the moisturizing properties. I personally believe I would have made this a staple if the consistency was thicker when I applied it to my hair instead of being runny. One thing I did like about the product was the inclusion of protein. This is most beneficially because my hair strands are currently heat damaged. If my tresses were not damaged I would have disliked this inclusion because excessive protein does not usually cooperate with my hair. The protein is great for strengthening my strands, so that made me love it.
I mostly enjoyed this product as a refreshing moisturizer. I tried this product on an old twist out to revive the moisture and it made a difference for the flexibility and strength of my strands. For me, this worked a little bit more when my hair was dry rather than wet.
wasn't too fond that I couldn't have use this as a detangler, but this wasn't delivered as a “miracle product” so that is fine.

I would recommend this to someone who requires a lower potency product for moisture.  




Product: Ishimma Cocomint Hair Oil
Price: 6.99
Their Claims: Immediately softens your hair with cocomint hair oil , a mixture of rich oils to protect the hair structure and add luster. End breakage with this blend of conditioning and nourishing oils, such as coconut hair oil.  Infused with peppermint oil for soothing the scalp and a pleasant aroma. Our oil is completely natural with no silicones, mineral oils, or parabens.
Ingredients: Sunflower oil* (conditions), Coconut oil* (conditions/retains moisture), Olive oil* (conditions), Peppermint oil (soothe/growth stimulant), Vitamin E (anti-oxidant/conditioner)
*Organic

This was the second product sent to me by the line. I used this in conjunction with the moisturizer.
The consistency was light for oil, I am guessing there weren’t any heavy oils included.
The smell of this oil is pretty darn scrumptious. It smells very smooth, if that makes sense, because it does not have harsh scents.

My thoughts: I would most definitely incorporate this into my regiment because it was an excellent sealer! I rarely had to apply this because my hair seemed to have taken heed to the product. It didn’t just lay on my hair it seemed to have provided sheen and slight moisture. I especially enjoyed using this as I took down my styles, ie. twistouts and braids. However, I would have preferred if the oil contained more oils stimulating hair growth, but beggars can not be choosers. I truly believe this product does what it is intended to do.

Other purposes: I tried to warm this oil up and use it as a hot oil treatment and it was tre magnifique! It left my hair shiny and soft! After washing out the oil it did not weight my hair down either as I would have initially expected!
Two thumbs up for the oil! I would recommend this to all oil lovers J
