Deodorants -Nubian Heritage -Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver 24 Hour Deodorant


Recently, I've been concerned with the heavy metals I expose myself to. So now I have been trying new deodorants that do not contain aluminum. At the store, this product really appealed to me, as it is all natural and the fragrance is intoxicating.

My rating is low for the performance. I purchased a 2.25oz stick for roughly $7 at a department store. I expected to pay more than usual for antiperspirant, since it seems the more ingredients they take out, the more you have to pay.

The fragrance is AMAZING. It is a clean/green fragrance profile lover's dream. The application and wear is horrible. The product's base is glycerin, so that sticky wet feeling is apparent, and quite contrary to antiperspirant's actual purpose. The feeling never goes away! I also experienced a stinging sensation upon application, which I am confused about, because it contains no alcohol. The wetness protection is absolutely NOT there, the fragrance lasts very briefly, and I just didn't get any real results.

I have since stopped using it under my arms and just apply it to my clothing as a fragrance layer, since it is lovely. Not going to purchase another stick. I wouldn't recommend at the price.

Gels/Soaps -Nubian Heritage -African Black Soap


Sadly, an average soap that did nothing for my eczema or acne. While it did not cause any irritation, break outs or drying out my skin excessively (it is a deep cleansing soap, so don't expect much moisturising effects), it does lather well and cleaned my skin. Basically, just a regular soap that does what it's supposed to do.

I would have given it a 3 star rating if not for the crazy giant chunks in this soap that makes it a literal pain to use. I've used African black soaps before, and while they did have a slightly rough sandy texture, it was more like a very gentle and mild scrub, unlike this scratchy soap. It should go without saying, but it definitely does not help my eczema or sensitive skin to have chunks in my soap that scratch it whilst I'm using it.

I might recommend African black of a different brand to soap to others with sensitive skin problems, but I will definitely not be recommending this one in particular.

Gels/Soaps -Nubian Heritage -Coconut & Papaya Soap

on 8/16/2018 11:34:00 PM


I use this as a daily body soap and while it lathers and cleanses without feeling tight... the product doesn't smell as good as I would have imagined. The scent is lacking which I think could be improved for better in-shower experience!

Lotions/ Creams -Nubian Heritage -Goats Milk and Chai Lotion with Rose Extract

on 3/13/2017 7:01:00 PM

I loooove this lotion. Smells exactly like Flowerbomb as another reviewer noted. It really smells exactly like that sweet, orchid-dominant fruitchouli with a bitter tea note and a hint of sparkle. The scent is long lasting and noticeable but not cloying at all, provided you enjoy this type of sweet scent.

I can't believe this one smells like Flowerbomb and Patchouli & Buriti smells like Angel, and yet these lotions are formulated with natural and non-harmful ingredients! It's really incredible.

Goat Milk & Chai makes my skin so soft and moisturized and though it is oily when first applied, it's never sticky and when I apply before bedtime I wake up to soft skin and a beautiful lingering scent.

I highly recommend this to Flowerbomb lovers and anyone who loves sweetly scented lotions and hardcore moisturizers. Not the cheapest product but very good value for money.

Lotions/ Creams -Nubian Heritage -Patchouli & Buriti

on 3/13/2017 6:52:00 PM

This lotion smells like tangy fruits and dark patchouli. In other words, it smells exactly like Thierry Mugler's Angel. I actually bought this by accident because there were no testers out and I wanted the lotion that smells like Flowerbomb... turns out the "Flowerbomb one" was the Goat Milk & Chai, which I fortunately also purchased on a hunch.

Patchouli & Buriti is thick, smells like Angel, and is heavy but not sticky. It has amazing moisturizing properties. It's great for layering with sweet perfumes.

If you love Angel and want a heavy duty non-sticky moisturizer, you'll love this. The scent lingered for at least three hours and when the lotion is first applied, the scent is quite potent.

Great stuff. Not the cheapest product but not outrageous either.
