I’ve finally had the chance to try all of the products in from my 5th SheaBassador box. Y’all should know that I have been using rice water in my hair since December. So, I was exciting about receiving products with purple rice water. Now I want to go to the store and buy some purple rice to make some purple rice water of my own. Honestly, I have not seen any rice water products on the market. This is the first branded product I am trying that has rice water in it.
Velvet Skin & Strength + Color Care Purple Rice Water for sensitive skin & all hair types
The purple rice water collection is enriched with 3 key ingredients
- Purple Rice Water, which has been used for centuries on Asian Royalty.
- Wild Orchid is a symbol of beauty around the world.
- Sweet Violet Extract is an edible flower often used in aromatherapy.
Strength + Color Care Shampoo
This sulfate-free nourishing shampoo helps restore hair to a stronger, healthier state. A blend of Purple Rice Water, Wild Orchid and Sweet Violet Extract removes dulling residue, while restoring shine and vibrancy. Apply to wet hair, gently massage into scalp and hair, working into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly.
After cleansing my hair twice with this shampoo, I have found it to be very silky and soft cleanser for my kinky curls. I do not have any color in my hair, so there is no concern for dulling residue. I frequently use rice water in my hair during my wash process, this is the first hair care product I have used with rice water in it and I expect amazing results.
Strength + Color Care Conditioner
This nourishing formula locks in moisture and nurtures strands back to health while combating unwanted brassy tones, softening and detangling hair. Apply to clean wet hair. Gently comb through from roots to ends and leave in for up to three minutes.
This conditioner most definitely locks in moisture to promote soft hair. It was easy to finger detangle my hair after cleaning. The only thing I do not like about this product is the packaging. The conditioner is to think for this pump situation. It takes a minute of pumping to get the conditioner to even come out, then after a few pumps the conditioner stops coming out. The formula is thick and does not remove in the bottle.
Velvet Skin Body Lotion
Formulated for sensitive skin, this lightweight creamy moisturizer hydrates and leaves skin silky soft. Smooth lotion all over your skin after a bath or shower.
I do not use lotion often. But I used this lotion after a day of Self Care. I agree that the product leaves your skin feeling silky soft. I do not agree that it is lightweight but it is creamy.
Velvet Skin Rice Scrub
Our scrub gently buffs away dry skin to soften and reveal a new radiance. Apply a small amount to palm, massaging gently into skin using a circular motion, concentrating on rough and dry areas. Leave on for one minute and rinse thoroughly with warm water.
I am in love with this body scrub. It is lightweight but extremely rich. I use it in the shower after shaving or at least twice a week. The scrub is gentle and soft. Honestly, after shaving my legs and using this scrub I felt in heaven.
Velvet Skin Facial Mask
This skin smoothing facial mask gently polishes skin, while an added boost of Papaya Extract leaves skin looking nourished and luminescent. Apply facial mask to clean skin. After 10 minutes rinse off with warm water.
This facial mask formula has a whipped formula appearance. It only takes a little bit of product to complete the job of polishing your skin to be more nourished. I’ve been using this mask once a week and my skin feels amazing after using.
This product line is cruelty free and available for purchase at ULTA.
