Aug/04/2016

I am a huge fan of St Ives body lotion line. I have tried five different types ( cranberry, pear, shea butter, coconut and....can't remember the last one but it's a leaf green and white bottle). They are all unique with nice fragrance.
I love the almond 24-hour intense moisture because it is not thick in consistency compared to shea butter. I use it as a face moisturizer while I …

Best deodorant I ever used. I purchased it from TJmaxx and been trying to get another stick. The smell is botanical green tea and it lasts for like 7 hours. Leaves no residue and very little goes a long way. The smell doesn't conflict with other body mist or fragrance l wear. I love this product.

Coconut oil is a staple for my kitchen,skin, hair and nail regimen. It is my night moisturizer now that it's hard to find a great one for my combo skin. It also help re-grow my edges entire hair. The smell is sweet and it works well as sunscreen for me in summer. I alternate between coconut and shea butter as sun-screen now that am yet to find a good one.

Coconut oil and butter …

It is my second bottle of sunny isle JBCO and It has helped grow my edges. The result is more gradual than miraculous though! Still growing baby hairs around my hairline but no longer bald like obvious alopecia. It is heavy and quite thick in consistency so i sometimes mix with coconut or avocado oil to thin out the consistency a bit.
I found out the skin care effect in firming my breasts …

Body Scrubs - Tree Hut - Coconut Lime Shea Sugar Scrub

I have tried the shea brazilian nut scrub and it was nice but i prefer the coconut lime. Even in pregnancy, i would take a longer time in the shower, waiting for the sugar scrub to penetrate my lovely skin and deliver smooth, rejuvenating result. Not for once was I disappointed, always stepping out of the shower happier perhaps humming one of my favourite songs. Yes i like it that much :)

I love this lotion. It is a ready alternative to St Ives shea oatmeal lotion. I haven't observed a darker skin tone using this lotion. The sweet smell appeals to my senses and gives this calming effect. I also like the lotion in summer while i switch to the butter during winter or for intimate parts that need some extra TLC ;)

An all time family favourite, this lotion is cruelty free and penetrates the skin without leaving an oily residue. Smells great and you find the smoothing effect after long use. Very cost effective. I am not sure if this particular shea and oatmeal darkens; but i observed my skin tone darkened a bit. We are in love with St Ives lotion line anyway...

I use this product for deep conditioning, the smell is 'encouraging'. The consistency is perfect but the results are just a little above average in my opinion. Maybe i expected more from previous reviews on you-tube :) I haven't seen the moisturizing effect in my hair especially after protective styling.
It could be the weave has sucked too much lustre from the hair or the …
