I have some exciting products to share with you from my June SheaBassador box. I am really enjoying all the products I have been receiving from Shea Moisture. The theme for this box is Coconut & Cactus Water. The smell of this product line is heaven sent. It means like morning fresh air on the beach, something like what I imagine a zin beach vacation smelling like.
What’s in the box:
- Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Bar Soap
- Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Body Wash
- Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Body Lotion
- Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Body Scrub
- Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Pick Me Up Lite Masque
Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Bar Soap with Blue Agave for dehydrated skin
This bar soap is enriched with vitamins and coconut water to keep your skin feeling hydrated and silky through this summertime heat. I haven’t seen any products on the market like this. So this was my first time using a bar soap with coconut water, and my first time using any product with cactus water. I’m not a fan of using bar soap for bathing. I’m more of a body wash type gal. So I used the bar soap for washing my face and hands. I like that the product doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry after use. It honestly made my skin feel hydrated like I used a moisturizer.
Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Body Wash with Blue Agave for dehydrated skin
Like I said before, I am a body wash type of gal. So this product came right on time, as I was in need of some new body wash. The product is free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oils and sulfates, so I had no issues or reactions to using a new body wash. I normally try to stay away from body washes that have fragrance in it. But this product has a light paradise scent of essential oil blends instead of a fragrance chemical. The formula is light and cleanses the skin really well. My body washes of choices are Aveeno and Nivea but I think I’ll be adding this product to my must have a rotation of body washes.
Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Body Lotion with Blue Agave for dehydrated skin
Lately, I have been using body oils instead of lotion to moisturize my body. I have found oils to last longer and be more light weight on the skin with less perfumes and dyes. So I only tried this lotion at night after showering. The formula is thick and takes a lot to rub in, but it excels in keeping your skin hydrated. Most mornings I’d wake up not needing to apply oil all over my body because I still felt hydrated. Because the product is so thick, I think it will be a treasure to have in the colder months of the year when my skin feels the driest.
Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Body Scrub with Blue Agave for dehydrated skin
I love a good body scrub, so this was the first product I was excited to try when I received the package. I use a body scrub in the shower at least twice a week. I love that the formula for this product is silky and gentle on the skin. I found that this scrub is great to use before getting a wax or before shaving. I’ve only had this product for 3 weeks and I have already used all of it. My location ULTA store did not have it in stock during my last visit but I am on the hunt for more of this body scrub.
Coconut & Cactus Water Quench & Refresh Pick Me Up Lite Masque with Blue Agave to Quench & Maintain lighter than air volume
So, I’ve started doing a Live @ 9pm segment on Instagram every Tuesday. Each week I get on live and chat about all things skin care, hair care, and self care. This week I decided to use the Pick Me Up Lite Masque on my dry hair on live. I normally use a hair mask after shampooing my hair, but the directions states this mask can be used on wet or dry hair. I applied the mask to my dry hair detangling it with my fingers and letting it sit for almost 2 hours.
