Lotions/ Creams -Shea Moisture -African Black Soap Body Lotion

on 6/16/2018 11:12:00 AM

I am absolutely in love with this lotion! I wish I had discovered it years ago. It absorbs easily into my skin, moisturizes super well and I can see results almost instantly. I use this all over my body. It makes my skin feel great. I can even use it on my face and neck. It contains no parabens, sulfates, etc. and no animal testing. It's great. My only complaint is that this is a very thick, creamy lotion and the container it comes in it not suitable for this product. I have no idea how the research and development department at Shea Moisture decided that this bottle was the appropriate way to package this product. This lotion is closer to a cream than a lotion and it is next to impossible to get out of the bottle it comes in. If I didn't love this product so much I would not purchase this again. This needs to be packaged in a jar or a bottle with a pump. As it is, I store my bottle upside down and then take the lid off the bottle and try to pour/squeeze the lotion out of the bottle. There is no use in trying to squeeze anything out of the opening in the lid on the bottle. I gave up on that right away. But, the results I get from this product are worth the effort. I use this lotion everyday.

So, this may seem like a harsh review, but I honestly couldn't give it higher. I don't understand any of the rave about this whole line. I've tried so many products after such high reviews. This is my experience:

I live in Australia so I could only buy it online at the time so the price alone was fairly high and then adding the postage price, it was quite expensive. But I was willing to try it because of the reviews. I have 3a-ish hair.

When I received the package I was a little dissapointed with the size, especially because of its price, but I decided to use it that night.
The smell was pretty good. Not my favourite but nice enough. Used it with the shampoo, washed it all out, wrapped my hair and went to sleep.
Woke the next morning and remember thinking "oh, yeah I guess it defined the curls a bit." figured it just took a couple of tries. Did my research on how other people used it and then tried again later that week and got the same sort of result. Figured I'd just use it up and continued to use it once more. Over those 3 times my hair went from pretty healthy and soft to hay like and drier than I have ever seen it in my life. Everyone, including the hairdresser was shocked at how dry it was, breaking off in her hands.

I already have a dry, sensitive scalp but again, this made it worse than ever, the itchiness insane and embarrassing flakes everywhere.

I stopped using it immediately and have worked to restore my hair and am still in the process of trying to fix my scalp. It's been over 6 months now and my hair is back to normal, scalp still very dry and flaky.

I won't be buying this EVER again, since it's all gone now anyway because it was knocked into its side in the shower and because of its thin consistentency, just flowed right out of the bottle.

Thanks, but no thanks.

When I received the package I was a little dissapointed with the size, especially because of its price.
I used it that night and really struggled to wash my hair normally, it was so thin! I had to pump only a maximum of two shots at a time and then repeat until I had enough to stop it running down my arm.
The smell was pretty good. Not my favourite but nice enough. Followed up with the conditioner, washed it all out, wrapped my hair and went to sleep.

Body Scrubs -Shea Moisture -Coconut & Hibiscus Body Scrub

on 6/12/2018 9:39:00 PM

The label on mine actually says "hand & body scrub;" I bought it specifically to use as a hand scrub. Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub isn't nearly oily enough to be called a *hand* scrub, in my opinion, although it would make an okay body scrub for those who don't like the bathtub death trap factor of super oily scrubs. While "coconut and hibiscus" sounds like it should smell amazing, it doesn't; just vaguely Play-Doh-like. The little bits of hibiscus petal are cute. At best, Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub could be made into a good hand scrub by adding sweet almond oil, plus an essential oil for fragrance, but when I pay US$10 for a scrub, I expect it to be great without any doctoring.

I'll stick to One Minute Manicure. It's salt based, super oily, and smells good. (It's also expensive, but you only need a tiny bit!)


Conditioner -Shea Moisture -Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave in Conditioner

on 6/7/2018 7:25:00 PM

It's . . . okay? Been using this primarily as the post-shower leave-in conditioner it's supposed to be and it gets the job done. If you're into cakey scents, you'll probably like this. I've also tried using this as a deep treatment, and if you really saturate your hair, it's very soft and shiny after you wash it out, but you need A LOT to get that texture and it's not very cost-effective. (I don't think the directions recommend washing it out, anyway.) However, I don't see any long-term results from using this, so I don't think I'll be buying it again.
