I make so secret of the fact that I stalk the “natural products” aisle at Target like a love-sick teenager trying to catch a glimpse of her current crush. So when a line of products showed up there a week or so ago I was all over it. A brand called Shea Moisture creates luxurious body treatments with really simple and rich ingredients. I picked up the 100% Organic Shea Butter which is more or less a tub full of thick ingredients that smell heavenly. I chose the Coconut & Hibiscus scent and I don’t regret it. It’s warm and floral = but a little strong so beware if you are scent sensitive. This balm has many great uses like fr dry skin, chapped lips, dry hair, psoriasis, insect bites… but it smells so feminine and tropical I like to use it as a hand and foot treatment before bed. While I watch TV I scoop out a bunch and start working it into my dry flip flop ragged feet and slip on a pair of cotton booties. By morning my piddies are soft and back to a human condition. I also picked up the Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Wash too. It foams like, whoa. And I am so buttery soft from using it, it’s quite unbelievable.
This line is totally free of parabens, phthalates, PEG’s, propylene glycols, harsh chemicals, and dyes. It’s also made with certified organic ingredients, is not tested on animals and uses ethically traded ingredients too. They have several scent profiles including the one I am in love with: Coconut Hibiscus. They also have Lavender & Wildflower, Lemongrass & Tea Tree, and Olive & Green Tea… though they only have a limited few at Target stores like their African Black Soap and Raw Shea Butter. I went back to Target to pick up the coordinating lotion and bar soap and they wee sold out. Looks like I’m not the only one privy to this new find!
Get It: Online at SheaMoisture.com or at your local Target (not all Targets carry it).
