Folks! It's review time once again! This time I have the pleasure of introducing to you a natural and green beauty brand called NouriShea. Their products are based on formulations with 100% USDA Certified Organic Shea Butter and natural essential oils. Founder and owner Victoria Francis began experimenting with Raw West African Shea Butter in early 2007 to help overcome her children's skin issues. When she couldn't find products with the exact balance of natural and premium Shea Butter that she felt comfortable using on her babies, she decided to turn her experiments into products that would be safe for her kids and herself.
Victoria sent me two body washes (Mango and Sandalwood) from her amazing product line. Loved the body washes and their mild scents, very gentle and moisturizing with no harmful chemicals to dry out your skin. Here is my review;
Let's begin with the packaging - neatly wrapped with tissue paper with a NouriShea sticker. I loved the way Victoria took a lot of care to wrap each body wash carefully. I started using the body washes the next day. Before I begin my review, let me just tell you what the NouriShea website says about each product.
Mango Body Wash - "This gentle cleansing and deep moisturizing body wash is specifically formulated to gently cleanse and pamper skin - all over. Enriched with natural moisturizers like 100% USDA Certified Organic Shea Butter, Vitamin E and vegetable glycerin which work to restore skin's elasticity while active botanical extracts rich in natural anti-oxidants help to replenish skins essential nutrients. Lightly scented with a hint of tropical Mango essential oil."
Sandalwood Body Wash - "Intoxicating and enveloping, the delicious scent of sandalwood and vanilla transforms your shower into an Eastern spa experience. This gentle cleansing and deeply moisturizing body wash is specially formulated to gently cleanse and pamper skin - all over."
Both the body washes are lightly scented and you only need a small amount to work out a rich lather. Out of the two, I liked the Mango better (maybe because that's my favorite fruit!)! Loved the way my skin felt after I washed off the lather with water - very soft, supple and moisturized. Use a gentle moisturizer/body cream after you shower (you might consider trying their Shea Butter body cremes!) and you won't need another thing to keep your skin moisturized! No dryness or itchiness afterwards. The tropical scents are perfect for the summer!
