Shea Moisture: a Black Owned Beauty Spotlight+Review
Today is all about self care and body products. I am sure you all have seen or heard of Shea Moisture. They have been around for years and they are one of my personal faves for bath, body, and even hair products. I was happily surprised when researching Black owned beauty brands to see that they were in fact, in that category.
Shea Moisture goes all the way back to 1912. (what?!?!) Sofi Tucker is the grandmother of the company and started selling Shea Nuts at a village way back when. The formulations that the company uses today are all handed down from generations. They leave out all of the harmful junk like parabens, mineral oil, petroleum, and animal testing and deliver great natural products.
Like I said before, I am no stranger to the company. I have used a variety of their products from hair care to lotion and Noah has even used the baby line. However for today, I picked out some products that I hadn't yet tried out.
First up was the Velvet Skin Body Wash $10.99. The scent is amazing, it is floral and a little fruity, super hydrating for my skin and although it does not later, it leaves my skin feeling super clean. From the same line, I also tried the Rice Scrub $11.99. This scrub has the same yummy scent and really softens my skin. The grit is gentle but still gets the job done. A little went a long way as well.
I also picked up the Bath, Body and Massage Oil. I chose the coconut &hibiscus scent. Super hydrating and nourishing and the smell is everything! I love how smooth my legs end up after shaving and applying this oil.
Shea Moisture products are a great blend of natural ingredients at an affordable price.They are super easy to get your hands on too. You can order directly from their site or they are also in just about every big box and drug store-win win win!
These products are a no brainer for me. And I am sure you will love them too. They literally have something for everyone so be sure to check them out and let me know what your fav was!
Brb, placing another order for lotions and hair masks!
Disclaimer: shortly after I received my order, I was on Instagram and I saw Shea Moisture put out a statement stating that as of 2017, they were no longer Black owned as they sold to Unilever. However, they were Black founded and to this stay are mostly Black run so, I am still including them in this category.
