SheaMoisture Body Self-care Kit

Self care, something we as adults sometimes forget to do in the chaos of life. Although this pandemic has been scary, stressful and uncertain, it has allowed us to slow down a bit and not take life for granted, as you never know what tomorrow may bring. Most of us right now, who are parents, are deciding whether or not to send our kids back to school. I'm fortunate enough to be able to work from home and have chosen to keep my kids home to attend distance learning. If you chose to send your kids back to school, no judgement here. Everyone's family situation is different and you have to do what's best for you. 

Between worrying about the upcoming school year and Covid-19 in general, I have to say all of my time these last few months have been focused on my kids, making sure that they're doing okay mentally as they watch the world they knew, change around them. To say its been stressful is an understatement, as I'm sure all of you know. So I was very excited to receive a SheaMoisture Body Self-care Kit package in the mail last week to keep my spirits high and brighten up my day and it did just that. Included in the kit were a few SheaMoisuture products from their new collection:

If you follow us on Instagram, you'll remember us posting in our stories sharing what was all inside the kit as well as our last post talking about the products we received. I took the weekend to pamper myself and enjoy a little me time by using each product. What I love about SheaMoisture is that each of their products are aimed for certain skin types, which is located towards the end of their label. 

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Soothing Body Lotion is a soothing blend of African Black Soap and organic Shea Butter helps calm and hydrate dry skin. Oats and Aloe Vera help soothe. The oats help sooth skin while obsorbing excess oil, the aloe moisturizes dry sensitive skin and Vitamin E helps protect the skin. Aimed for people with troubled skin, apply to damp skin for moisture retention for best results. I absolutely loved this lotion. Not only is the smell divine, but I loved that although the lotion is thick, it's not heavy on your skin and it's not greasy. I use this lotion on my feet after I shower, to help with my dry/cracked skin and so far I am loving how it hydrates my feet. 

SheaMoisture Hemp Seed Oil Calm & Comfort Body Lotion takes your body care routine to new heights with this indulgent, creamy moisturizer. Specially blended with Hemp Seed Oil, Aloe, and Chamomile, this lotion will envelop your skin in soothing moisture. Hemp Seed Oil helps, all skin types, by moisturizing your skin without clogging your pores. Aloe, can help treat burns, acne and dry skin and Chamomile helps relieve itching by skin iritations.  When opening up this lotion and smelling it, you automatically get a calming sensation. The lotion is aimed for all skin types and is best used after a bath or shower, smooth lotion all over skin. For a calming ritual, use as a massage cream. 

SheaMoisture African Black Soap with Shea Butter Bar Soap is a soothing body bar soap made from palm and plantain peel ash and a combination of various oils which have been used in Africa for centuries to balance oily skin. SheaMoisture's African Black Soap combines Cocoa Pod Potash, Coconut Oil, and Shea Butter and should be used daily to help balance dry skin. African Black Soap, an honored beauty secret from traditional and age-old recipes in West Africa, is considered natural soap and designed to help calm dry-irritated skin. It is an ideal soap bar for skincare and a favorite of the house of SheaMoisture. The soap leaves skin soft and refreshed. A bar soap that leaves you feeling invigorated, cleansed and soothed is an ideal daily companion. I've used this African Black Soap over the last few days and it not only smells heavenly, but I love how it lathers up and how my skin feels clean and refresh. A soap I think I'll be buying for myself from now on as I'm loving how it makes my skin feel. 

Lastly we got to try SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Skin Renewal Recipe Body Scrub. This body scrub is aimed for dry, stressed skin. Renew your skin with this gentle, illuminating and exfoliating body scrub that buffs away dead skin and dirt while keeping skin conditioned. Its luxurious texture, infused with Manuka Honey, Yogurt and Vitamin C, leaves skin soft, smooth and new. By applying a small amount to palm, massage gently into skin using a circular motion, concentrating on rough and dry areas. Let the scrub sit on your skin for one minute to help condition and then rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. I absolutely love the smell of this body scrub and love how it makes my skin feel refreshed after using it. 

Each of these products can be found over on SheaMoisture's website and can also be found in retail stores where SheaMoisture products are sold. This was such a great kit to receive to help me carve out some me time and rejuvenate before summer is over.
