Weekends are for ….
- Longer than normal showers
- Hot Bubble Baths
- DIY manis/pedis
- Washing & Deep Conditioning hair
- Detoxifying Face Masks
Pretty much I am all into pampering me and enjoying some type of Self Care routine on Saturdays and Sundays. Well today is no different, as I plan to use some sample beauty products I received courtesy of Nailah’s Shea. *Disclaimer: Although, I received product for review, the opinons are my own
I first heard of this brand last week at the Triad Womens Blogger Network meetup (see recap video here) in Greensboro, where all attendees received the Nailah’s Shea samples in our swag bags ! Here is what we received:
I am a fan of shea butter because of its many benefits and my family personally uses it to help with
- Dry Skin
- Preventing stretch marks &wrinkles
- Minimizing Scars
- Natural Shaving Balm
- Insect Bites
- Cuticle Repair
I was excited to try something new from this all natural Shea butter-based beauty and body care product line.My first impression was how wonderful it smelled! This Zanzibar Spice fragrance is a nice mix of citrus and spicy. It was truly love at first sniff !
I immediately reached out to Founder & Ceo, Camilia Majette to express my gratitude in receiving this swag and how much of a natural high I was on just from the smell of her product. I felt as if I were transported to somewhere exotic! To my surprise, she offered to send the 2 Oz jar and matching soap too. Who doesn’t like surprises? How Sweet!
Notice the Unscented Oatmeal Shea Butter Soap bar? I immediately thought my husband and/or daughter would love this too ! I was touched when the owner mentioned she thought of my family 🙂 We care to use natural products on our body, so it pleased me to learn that Naiilah’s Shea is a fair trade product and also…….
I showered this morning using the Citrus Manjano Shea Butter Soap. Talk about your morning pick me up! This soap infused with orange and lemongrass therapeutic-grade organic essential oils had me feeling like that OutKast song “so Fresh and so Clean, Clean”. Check out the packaging and how the soap is handcrafted:
This soap also smelled oh so good ! I appreciated the balance of fragrances and how it’s not a strong and overpowering scent.I loved how moisturized it made my skin feel. Now time to lock in and seal that moisture by using some of this Jasmine Asmini Whipped Shea Butter.
But first, will it past my sniff test….YES!
I’ve had some shea butter products that were just too thick and seemed to take forever to absorb into my skin. Not this one. Its texture was nice and I was able to glide it right onto my skin. You can tell she uses quality ingredients to make her hand-whipped shea butters. It did not leave me feeling too oily and I learned from the website that some of the ingredients used were high in anti-aging properties. Since I will be turning 44 this year, that was good info to know!
Although this business is based out of Greensboro, products are available to purchase online http://www.nailahsshea.com.
SobeSavvy Tip: You don’t have to wait to buy your products online. Tomorrow only, you can visit Nailah’s Shea this Sunday at West Elm in Durham from 12-5p at the Streets at Southpoint Mall!
So far I am enjoying this journey to naturally glowing healthy skin. I look forward to continue using the products as part of my self care routine and plan on getting me some exfoliating sugar scrub from Nailah’s Shea. Be sure to follow Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
