Product Review: Shea Moisture Lavender & Orchid Body Butter


Product Review: Shea Moisture Lavender & Wild Orchid Body Butter


So we all know and love Shea Moisture hair products for the moisture and protection they provide. But have you tried their body products? So so good guys! You have to try. Below is my review of the Shea Moisture Body Butter with Lavender & Wild Orchid extract.


Ingredients:

Deionized Water, Cocoamidopropyl Betaine (Coconut Oil Soap), Glucoside (Sugar Beets), Lauroyl Lactylate (Palm Kernel), Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil (*Certified Oraganic Ingredient), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) (*Certified Oraganic Ingredient), Green Tea Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Essential Oil Blend, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower, Lonicera Japonica (HoneySuckle) Flower Extract

Promises:
  • Deeply Moisturizes and repairs skin with vitamins and essential fatty acids.
  • Calms and soothes skin irritation.
  • Repairs damaged skin and helps prevent moisture loss.
Price: $9.99 for 6oz (at Target)

My Thoughts:


I am happy I got this body butter. It's very rich, thick and creamy like a butter should. It goes into the skin and leave it really moisturized and added shine (but not too much). Also the smell is very flowery (well its lavender after all. Lol). I absolutely love it. I must also note that my skin stayed moisturized for the day. I suffer with eczema so finding a product to keep my skin moisturized was my main concern. It passed the test "with flying colors".

Pros:
  • Very Moisturizing and skin retained moisture for a full day
  • A little goes a long way. Just rub in your palms and apply.
  • All Natural, No parabens or mineral oil 
  • Price is very good at $9.99

Con:
  •  The only con I can think of is that some people might not like the flowery perfume scent. However I loved it. (If Lavender is not your cup of tea there are other scents available in Target.)

Please do your skin a favor and head to the store and butter up. Your skin will thank you. Trust me.


Have you tried any Shea Moisture body products before?

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....

Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
