Lip Treatments -Shea Moisture -Shea Butter Vegan Lip Balm

on 12/6/2018 11:46:00 AM

Look, I was willing to overlook a lot with this lip balm, but I've had it for a week and a half and I just tried to squeeze some out and the seam on the bottom of the tube burst. Pro tip: if customers have to turn into the Hulk to squeeze out your lip balm because it's so solid maybe put it in a container that won't break in the process. Now I've just got lip balm splooged all over because it comes out the tear in the seam a lot better than it ever came out of the tip of the tube. Lovely.

The crazy thing is that this is actually a great lip product for dry lips - especially in winter - because it's thick and moisturizing, but also a really great occlusive that forms a protective barrier over your lips. Objectively a great lip balm, but it's ruined by the packaging.

Moisturizers -Shea Moisture -Green Coconut & Activated Charcoal Moisturizing Jelly Cream w/White Tea

on 11/29/2018 10:24:00 AM


I have "normal" (not particularly oily, not particularly dry), breakout-prone skin. I was looking for a moisturizer that can be used day or night, all year round. Something low maintenance, affordable, & no-fuss. Decided to pick this one up for the dumbest reason: grey is my favorite color. Plus Shea Moisture is cruelty-free, & since this product is $12.99 for 2oz I figured why not?

I really do like it. As I mentioned, the moisturizer itself is grey (due to activated charcoal). It smells great (slightly like coconuts, but overall very fresh). It has a jelly-like texture which is neat. Feels cooling on the face when applied. Doesn't cause breakouts for me. Works well for a nighttime moisturizer, & also during the day under makeup. The glass packaging is nice & substantial.

Here are the key ingredients (taken from the Ulta website):
"Green Coconut: Delivers a burst of mineral & vitamin-enriched revitalizing hydration
Activated Charcoal: Absorbs dirt, impurities & product build-up to purify pores
White Tea: Helps nourish & restore skin."

Shea Moisture is a brand that I like supporting because their ethics seem to align with my own. I give it four lippies because this product is good, really good. But it's not mind blowing, or something I see myself sticking with for a long time. I'll still try out other moisturizers when I'm done with this one, but it's nice to now have another tried & true stand-by that I can always go back to.

on 11/21/2018 2:11:00 PM

This is by far my favorite hair mask conditioner. Ive tried the carols daughter almond milk, loreal(the yellow tub), aussie 3 minute moist, sephora ones and i always come back to this. It is weightless and smells sooooooo good. Its not overpowering, very nice and light. Coconut with fruits that isnt too sweet or artificial. I love this hair mask! I use this every other day and its never heavy and it makes my hair soft and silky. Will def repurchase.

For reference i have straight wavy ish dark brown dry ends oily scalp medium thickness asian hair thats been falling out due to having a baby recently.

Shampoo -Shea Moisture -Jamaican Black Castor Oil strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo

on 11/19/2018 5:49:00 PM


My mom is Caucasian with 2A hair and I am biracial (mixed with African American/Caucasian) with 2C/3A hair and we both love this shampoo. I actually started using this first and then bought a bottle for my mom. She thought the brand was only for a particular race of people and that Shea Moisture products would be "too heavy" or "too rich" for her oily, nearly straight hair. However, I've explained to her and broken down that hair type is how we should care for hair, not based on ethnicity. Now that she's gotten rid of her sulfate-filled, ultra-drying cheap drugstore shampoo and tried Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo, she LOVES Shea Moisture. I urge others to not limit their beauty options because they think a brand is for a certain demographic. Whether you're white, black, Hispanic, Asian, or Arab, you probably will find a Shea Moisture shampoo that will benefit your hair type. Better yet, no matter your race you will probably find that not using sulfate-filled shampoos alone will benefit your hair.

I shampoo using Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo every 2 days. This shampoo does such a good job at NOT drying and stripping hair of natural oils that I don't even use a conditioner after (something I couldn't do before). I have soft baby fine, non-color treated, healthy, low density hair, so I actually follow this shampoo with argan oil once I get out of the shower (I basically use the LOC method, just without the cream... so I guess the LO method lol). I seal in the water (aka moisture) with a small amount of lightweight argan oil and let my hair air-dry, and all is well. I don't use heat on my hair, but IF I did I would follow my argan oil with a silicone like It's A 10 Miracle Leave In (the silicones help coat your hair and protect it from heat damage... You might have to use a clarifying sulfate shampoo more often if you use silicone products).

Just as a side note, because I live in an area with VERY hard water I do have to clarify my hair once every two weeks. I can tell all the minerals from the water build up on my hair and it starts looking dry for no reason. I shampoo with VO5 Kiwi Lime Shampoo and then I can tell it's back to normal and receiving moisture. Depending on your area's water type you might have to do the same. But for a daily, biweekly, or weekly shampoo, most hair types will do well with Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo.

Gels/Soaps -Shea Moisture -Baby Eczema Bar Soap with Raw Shea, Chamomile, & Argan Oil

on 11/18/2018 10:50:00 AM


I have extremely sensitive skin. I always seem to have some kind of rash or irritation somewhere. I have not been diagnosed with eczema, but I came across this soap in my local CVS and thought the $6 was less than a specialist copay so I gave it a try. I fell in love with this soap in just a few days. My mysterious rash disappeared. When I do get new irritations, they clear up in a day or two instead of 4 - 6 weeks prior to using this Raw Shea bar. My skin is softer, especially my elbows which tend to get rough. I use this everyday in the shower. While it is moisturizing, it isn't one of those soft slimy bars that leaves a residue at the bottom of your tub. The bar lasts a long time and I even use it on my face from time to time. I would definitely recommend!
