Winter is here and so are all the ailments that come with the cold. So here are some of my Shea Moisture favorites that help with dry skin, acne, dry hair, and dandruff.

 

Body

Lavender & Wild Orchid Body Wash and Body Lotion

  • If stress relief had a smell this body wash is definitely it! Smells amazing and makes your skin feel as soft as a baby?s bottom.Both the body wash and lotion is very smooth and leaves your skin fragrant with a smooth shine. The fragrance of both the lotion and body wash has a perfect consistency but isn’t overwhelming. ?When using the product you would get the best results when using them together. One plus about this body wash/ lotion combo is that once the lotion is applied your skin will feel moisturized all day long, which is great for those that have an issue of dry skin in the winter months.

African Black Soap Body Wash and Bar Soap

  • Probably the holy grail of the Shea Moisture body line, truly an amazing product. Between the two forms of this product, it is very versatile and great for sensitive skin. Being that African black soap in its natural state is saturated with antioxidants, vitamins A and E it is nutrient heavy which will help your skin to be in its healthiest state. African black soap helps with various skin problems such as acne, eczema, skin discoloration, dry skin as well as psoriasis, just to name a few. With the mix of oats and aloe this product it increases your skin’s hydration, diminishes areas acne and relieves skin irritations that may be occurring. The bar soap is an especially great replacement for your face wash, especially if you may be experiencing acne breakouts due to hormone imbalances or even stress. ?Beauty Fact: washing your face two times a day with the African black bar soap (depending on the skin type) can possibly diminish the redness and presence of acne within 3-4 days of use.

Energizing Bubble Bath and Body Wash

  • Who needs coffee when you have the perfect product to wake you up? This fruit fusion and coconut water mixture are great for any bath or shower, especially when you are looking for a pick me up! This body wash/ bubble bath consists of a fragrant fusion is great for those experiencing dry and dull skin. It will bring back the missed shine and moisture that you are used to having. Grab a bottle and have a nice warm soak and invest in some ?you? time!

 

Face

African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask

  • Need a natural face mask that doesn?t send your sensitive skin spiraling in the wrong direction? This mud mask is great because it is soft enough to not cause irritation but contains an astringent to help cleanse and brighten your skin. ?This product contains African black soap, tea tree oil, and tamarind extract which helps promote healing, reduce blemishes, and is great for exfoliating.

 

Hair

 

Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Shampoo/ Conditioner/ Hydration Masque

  • Need a nourishing and moisturizing hair boost? This product line may be the one for you. This line is great for moisture retention, especially for those of you that have low porosity hair. Personally, I have struggled with dry hair spells especially in the fall and winter months and once i found this line my hair feels rejuvenated, healthy, and moisturized. The hydration Masque is a hidden gem in itself, it’s great for deep conditioning especially after having your hair in a protective style such as braid for a long period of time. The Masque has a buttery lotion consistency and works best on wet hair. It?s best if you evenly saturate and distribute the product in your hair. Let it sit for about 30min or more then rinse. Your hair should feel bouncy, moisturized and overall revitalized.

Coconut & Hibiscus ?Shampoo/ Conditioner / Curl & Style Milk / Curl Enhancing Smoothie

  • The Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus product line has a ton of varying products. Although the must-have products are the shampoo, conditioner, the curl and style milk, along with the curl enhancing smoothie. ?These four products are great for moisturizing and protective styling. These products contain silk protein, coconut oil and neem oil which helps with hydration, frizz, reducing breakage, and provides a shine to your hair. Not only do these product smell amazing, but they go great with varying combinations of other products.
