Uneyvu Butter Review

I had been hearing people rave about products by Belle Butters especially the Uneyvu Butter. I decided to take a look at the goodies Belle Butters had to offer and fell in love with almost everything. I came down to one product and it was the Unyevu Butter.

The product contains all natural ingredients: shea butter, raw pressed mango butter, refined avocado butter, apricot kernel oil, neem oil, sunflower oil, fragrance, and vitamin E.

Which makes the smell a mixture of greatness. It’s hard to describe the scent, but the best thing I could come up with was a sweet nutty scent.

The consistency was super rich and AMAZING!! It went on smooth and left my skin moisturized and feeling smooth like butta. Oh and this ish was long lasting too. By the end of everyday my skin was still very moisturized and smelled like that sweet buttery nut.20130314-004600.jpg

As you can see it was that damn good!! There is barely any left. LOL

The good thing about the item is that it can be used on the hair as well as the skin. In addition some of the Belle butters sales go to Charity Water and it’s packed with all natural ingredients, so it kinda makes it worthwhile.

Organic Soap… Yes it’s Shea Moisture

You all may not remember but the first CurlBox I received which I believe was the March box, I recieved some great items. One item that really stood out to me was the Shea Moisture Red Bush & Sage Shea Butter Soap.

Now this was my first time with this particular item from Shea Moisture. Prior to this I had only known of the hair products, so I had to put this organic soap to the test.

I have been using it for sometime now and I have to say Shea Moisture has done it again got me. They continue to deliver great products. It smells good, leaves my skin feeling clean, it lasts longer than most bars of soap in my opinion. Most of all I know my skin is getting all of its vitamins, minerals, and goodness. Yes…all natural ingredients! (I wish I could list all of them but that wrapper is no where to be found). Though, Shea Moistures has a very excellent reputation for all natural ingredients. So we know it’s real. Lol

Thanks to CurlBox for supplying me with the goods and thank you Shea Moisture for keeping me in love.

Shea Moisture Black Soap Mask and Moisturizer

Received these two products in my National Natural Hair Meetup Day winnings from the lovely folks over at Shea Moisture. I finally got a chance to try them.

In using other masks I expected a thick consistency; this was not the case with this particular one. The consistency was lightweight and really watery. I cleansed my face with my Cerave cleanser followed by the application of the mask. It went on easy and came off easy. Thumbs up to Shea Moisture once again. I left the mask on for 15 minutes; after rinsing off the mask and patting dry as directed, I applied the balancing moisturizer. My face felt fresh and rejuvenated!

The container states that the mask is good for removing impurities from the skin before they can cause any trouble. It also absorbs any excessive oil in the skin and refines. All of this was indeed true.If you have troubled skin or like pampering yourself then this is a fun and easy way to do so.

Body Scrubbed & Moisturized

Want to get rid of those blemishes…

You do not have to spend money to purchase a face steamer, because you have it right in your kitchen. A pot, stove and water. This is what I used to steam my face and it worked perfectly. Steaming you face is the best way to give your pores a deep clean. It loosen debris that have been embedded into the skin. I will list the steps below and I encourage you to steam your face twice a week.

Step 1: first I cleansed my face with Cetaphil face cleanser. ( you can use your desired face wash). I made sure my face was free of dirt, and makeup.

Step 2: I then boiled water until it was hot and steamy. I added fresh herbs to the water,I used lemon and green tea leaves.
(If your skin is oily you can use thyme, peppermint or lemon. For sensitive use chamomile or lime. Those with normal skin can use rose, rosemary or lavender.)

Step 3: I stood directly over the pot and draped a towel over my head so that the steam wont escape. I stood there for 10 mins when the steam started to go away. I then rinsed my face and applied a facial mask. I made my mask with 2 egg whites and 2 small spoons of plain yogurt. This is good to keep moisture in the skin.

Applying a mask right after steaming your face is the best time because your pores are opened and the mask will deeply penetrate into the skin

Step 4: I rinsed off the mask, and cleansed my face with Cetaphil face wash again and applied a warm damp towel over my face until the towel got cool. I dried of my face and applied my Embryolisse moisturizer.

*NOTE* Be careful not to burn your face. do not put your face very close to the pot. Steaming your face can sometimes dry out your skin, just be sure to apply a moisturizer after.
