What’s missing from your shower experience? My shower adventure was missing 1) a captivating, lingering scent, 2) a way to seal in the moisture, 3) the opportunity to scrub off any dead skin or ground in dust. As crazy as that last one sounds, for those of us who wear open toe shoes a lot, the dust does accumulate on our feet.
I love to walk down soap aisles, but unfortunately I have to pass all of the pretty colored bottles and bars. I’m allergic to mostly everything, and have to stick to products that contain minimal, and all natural ingredients. Now we all know the Shea Moisture Brand, and most of us have already tried the products in their hair line arsenal. Although I’m not a fan of Shea Butter on my hair, I am a big fan of Shea Butter on my crusty areas (heels and elbows only people). WE HOPE THIS REVIEW CAN HELP YOU SAFELY, AND AFFORDABLY PURCHASE A WELL NEEDED SUGAR SCRUB, ESPECIALLY FOR THE UPCOMING FALL/WINTER SEASONS.
The Shea Moisture Lavender & Wild Orchid Body Scrub w/ Shea Butter claims to be “Healing, Hydrating and Calming”. This product states the following: “This soothing sugar scrub exfoliates with fragrant Lavender Buds and nourishes skin with Shea Butter and Wild Orchid Extract”.
Recommended Use: Mix Contents well. Apply a small amount to palm, massaging gently into skin using a circular motion, concentrating on rough, dry areas. As a hand treatment, rub palms together to create gentle warmth, massage gently into top of hands and cuticles. Rinse skin thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.
How I Use It: I use it as directed on both my body AND face.
INGREDIENTS: Sugar, Safflower Oil, Lavender Buds, Shea Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, Mango Seed Butter, Castor Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Olive Oil, Cymbidium Grandiflorum Flower Extract, Tocopheral (Vitamin E), Honeysuckle Flower…and other wonderfully natural oils.
I was excited to see that they added yet another body product, a sugar scrub! I love sugar scrubs because they are effective, affordable (if you make your own), and tasty. I exfoliate my face with sugar (brown sugar and olive oil)….perfect. Dead skin removed, moisture sealed. You can’t beat that with a bat. The Shea Moisture Lavender & Wild Orchid Body Scrub w/ Shea Butter is targeted mostly for the body, but I have moved on to using it on both body and face. I LOVE the Lavender, Wild Orchid scent! Those of us with sensitive skin do not get a chance to play with many fun scents such as this. Oils are always welcomed, they keep me from having ashy skin. For those of you scared of breakouts (especially on the face), I have not experienced 1 pimple from using this. And if it’s not irritating to my face, then it should be fine for the body (do a patch test first). I consider myself a “litmus test” for any product’s irritation capacity.
Overall, I would recommend this as a product to place into your shower stall or bath tub. You can cover a lot of grounds with this one folks! Scent, Exfoliation, Moisture/Seal. And the price was right. I purchased this for about $10.00 at Target.
