Product Review: Shea Butter

Like many problems there is a natural cure that usually is more effective than anything found in a bottle.  Shea butter is made from the nuts found on the African Shea tree.  I purchased my tub of natural shea butter from my local beauty supply store for $3.99.  It came in a plastic container as a chunk of raw yellow shea butter.

Here are 5 reasons why you should use Shea Butter:

1. Deep hydration for hands and feet: can be worn overnight with socks or gloves to soothe dry, cracked skin

2. Prevents wrinkles: can be used as an anti-aging balm to renew cell and prevent wrinkles

3. Hair sculptor: tame and sculpt hair to hold it in place. It is also good for defining curls

4. Natural soothing cream: helps to soothe irritation from mosquito bites and reduce swelling

5. Lip balm: great for soothing dry cracked lips and protect the lips for cold, harsh weather

 

These are just 5 ways that I use my raw shea butter.  It is found in several products but there is nothing like the real thing.  Here are 50 Ways to Use Shea Butter and best of all is you can reap all of the benefits of shea butter without the crazy price tag of a brand.

 

Best of luck beautiful

 

 

Summer Mini Haul- Black Soap and Shea Butter

I have been speaking with a friend who is very into using natural products and I was lectured for using store-bought lotions and soaps.  I am a huge fan of lotions that promise to mositurize all types of skin and soaps/ body wash that exfoliate the skin and smell yummy and exotic.  Personally I fell like I have “bad skin” and I am breaking out a bit more than usual so it is time for a change.

My face, chest, back and shoulders are not looking up to par so I took his advice and headed to my local beauty supply store and purchased pure shea butter and pure black soap.  I have used these products in the past but not consistently.

I will show you my progress or the lack of from using this pure combination.

Wish me luck.

Stay Beautiful

 

Product Review: Creme of Nature with Argan Oil Perfect Edges Hair Gel

Good Afternoon to all of my beautiful followers.  I hope your day is off to a blessed beginning.

Summer is on its way and the weather is absolutely beautiful so I decided to switch up my do.  I picked up a jar of Creme of Nature’s Perfect Edges hair gel from my local beauty supply store and put it to the test for my frohawk hair do of the day.

I like this hair gel because it’s not greasy and didn’t flake on me.  I applied it to my edges along with a spritz of extra virgin olive oil and used a tooth-brush to make sure the product was applied throughout hoping it would hold up.

This is me after a long day at work with my edges still in place.

It definitely got the job done and I would purchase it again without hesitation.

Thank you creme of nature!!!
