I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Moved out here to CT to start anew but my heart will always belong to NYC. Now when I came across this brand, I was hella intrigued because anything that has to do with NYC, I am so here for.

Minnie Brown is the owner and creator of NYC MetroGirl. The company started in March 2013 and is based out in Staten Island (Shaolin if you’re a Wu-Tang fan like moi). She was super nice to send me a few items to review.

Minnie has some magic making hands because the performance of this soap is everything. It lathers perfectly, it makes the skin feel super smooth like a lotion bar that lathers. And once you rinse it off the skin, it doesnt feel dry or streaky. The scent……@___@…… it’s like a grown woman, sexy yet fruity scent. I love it. Very hard to describe but when I used this, the scent permeates the bathroom like crazy. Even some minutes after the shower you can still smell it. Jesus.

**On the site, the scent describes as Golden Amber and Egyptian Musk intermingled with sparkling citrus, lily of the valley, pink jasmine and warm woods

Would I purchase?

Another gem here is this glycerin bar Coco Dream. The performance is the same as Creative Juice but this moisturizes the skin more because of the glycerin content. Perfect for the this dry arse weather lol. Because lawd knows I need a basket full of these with a tub full of thick butter lol. Now the name is very true to the scent. Smells like a dream. Very tropical, under a palm tree drinking gin and juice out of a coconut. Yup, at least that’s my dream haha. It smells amazing and just like Creative Juice, the scent fills the bathroom during and after each use.

**On the site, the scent describes as Coconut & Patchouli with a touch of light musk

Would I Purchase?

Darn skippy!! *means yes*

This butter is thick but light enough to 86 the ashiness off your hands and still be able to hold a cup of coffee without being scared it may slip. Coin the term butter fingers. Heh. NYC Metro Girl body butter is also perfect enough to wear it winter round. So it wont feel like you rubbed canola oil on your body when you’re under 90 degree weather and doesn’t clog pores! This scent Dark Berry is another winner. Lawd hammercy. Another grown and sexy sweet scent. What I love about these scents are Creative Juice, Coco Dreams and Dark Berry are NOT your teen daughter scents. Not bubble gum, pop-y, I borrowed from a teen girl scent. When I say grown sexy and sweet.. think of sweet scents but darkened down so women in their 50’s can still rock.

**On the site, the scent describes as Ripe black raspberries, mixed with dark plums and warm vanilla

Would I Purchase?

Yes ma’am.. a tub full. *nods*

Last year around this season, I had some crust arse lips. What kind of saved it from cracking and drying to oblivion was my oil mix of safflower oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil. I still kind of use that mix (when I remember) but I’ve been using sugar scrubs more. This pocket sugar scrub I have been using for a few weeks(not combined with other scrubs and balms), one time in the day and once at night. Calling this a sugar scrub is kind of questionable being that it doesn’t have any sugar grains in it. It’s pretty much a Green Tea and Strawberry “get cho lips right)”balm. But lips are still kissably smooth. It smells exactly like green tea and strawberries too.

Would I Purchase?

Yes. Can’t get enough of lip saving products. :]

I own oil perfumes and never really cared for solid perfumes until I tried this. I glide this on pulse/pressure points (behind the ears, on the wrist, etc) and it’ll stay on for a couple of hours. It really depends on your body chemistry. NYC Metro Girl solid perfume smells so good. Desire is the scent and again, part of the grown and sexy sweet crew. Even though it doesnt last on me for long, I like the fact that the scent transfers on clothing. So when I wear that item again along with the solid perfume, the scent would be more pronounced.

Would I Purchase?


A tip when you purchase NYC Metro Girl products, if you get any of the scents, make sure you get the works. If you end up getting Creative Juice soap bar, get the butter, perfume, and lotion in that scent. It smell will last longer on you use them accordingly.
