When it comes to skin care, it is quite difficult to find products that walk the line between working well and being animal/environmentally friendly. Most people might sacrifice a few bunnies or sections of the rain forests to have a clear complexion or not deal with razor burn after a shave. I know this because I used to be one of those people. That is, until I found the line of skin care products offered by Shea Moisture. Shea Moisture stands by a very high standard for their line of products, which does not test on animals and it made from all natural items. They can be found in a lot of stores that are across the country and can be ordered online. While they aren’t able to ship straight from their own site, you can sign up for updates, give them feedback and find out where they are being carried.
I’ve only scratched the surface of the products that they offer by discovering their Three Butters Wash & Scrub and Tea Tree Herbal Bump Preventer after shave, and with everything else they offer I’m quickly transforming all of my products to their line. I look forward to every shower and shave with the addition of Shea Moisture products, and my skin cannot thank Shea Moistureenough. My entire complexion looks and feels perfect.
Tea Tree Herbal Bump Preventer
This was the first Shea Moisture product that I discovered. Prior to this I was using a different line which offered more of a thick lotion for an after shave and I was a little wary of changing to a product that was more watery. As soon as I opened the bottle to use some the aroma took me in. It is an amazing mixture of tea tree and citrus which provides a nice, light kick to wake you up in the morning, while keeping the sting that comes with after shave down to a minimum. The scent isn’t overpowering like many other lines, but stays with you just long enough so you can enjoy it. It is as thought they put microscopic timers in every drop to make it last the perfect amount.
Three Butters Wash & Scrub
Just like the Herbal Bump Preventer, the Three Butters Wash and Scrub is amazing. Only a small amount is needed to have perfectly moisturized and exfoliated skin, and the scent is perfection. The mix of Shea, Mango and Avocado makes every shower feel as though I’ve spent a day in a forest. It awakens my senses, relaxes my mind and it has the perfectly timed aroma lock technology. It makes my bathroom go from a normal room and transforms it into a warm, comforting blanket with it’s scents.
I really can’t say enough great things about Shea Moisture and the products that I’ve tried, and my words don’t do it justice. I highly recommend testing at least one product from their extensive line and let them know what you think. As for me, I think that it’s time for another shower and shave!
