Shea Moisture Daily Hydration Body Wash and Lotion

Coconut is one of my absolute favourite smells (aside from Jasmine) and within a beauty product, I am a huge fan of how it leaves my skin, especially as a body product. From SheaMoisture, I have just finished using these two huge bottles of Body Wash and Body Lotion and they are brilliant, as well as being great value for money.

With the most wonderful brand history, Sofi Tucker started selling Shea Nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling Shea Butter, African Black Soap and her homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside. Sofi Tucker was our Grandmother and SheaMoisture is her legacy.

The SheaMoisture Body Wash (£10.99) is absolute heaven in a bottle and it is very rare you find a product that you enjoy using as much as when you first open it to that very last drop, which is exactly what I did with this.

Using what SheaMoisture refer to as the best parts of the coconut which helps to leave the skin soft, nourished and luxuriously clean. Alongside it, you will also find Exotic Acacia Senegal, which I am told is great for inflammation and redness, is mixed with a luxurious blend of 100% Virgin Coconut Oil and Coconut Milk to moisturise as it gently cleanses. As well as using this as a body wash, you can also add a capful to your bath and if you are a fan of bubbles, then this will tick a box for you because it creates copious amounts of bubbles to lie back in and relax.

When it comes to using a body lotion, I have said on more than one occasion that I am lazy, I find the application such a chore unless it comes in a spray or a spritz, but and it is a big but, if I like the product then the chances are I will use it.

This Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Body Lotion (£10.99) is described as being an indulgent body lotion which provides everyday hydration for all skin types, even skin that only requires a drop of moisture.

On the skin, it is really lightweight, despite looking as though it would be quite thick and gloopy. Once applied, what I really like is just how quickly it absorbs into the skin. It uses exotic Acacia Senegal with all the best parts of the Coconut and this means that as the body lotion melts effortlessly into skin to not only does it leave it feeling really hydrated, it does so any greasy residue – one of my bugbears when it comes to body lotions.

Both of these products smell absolutely delightful and if you are a fan of the scent of coconut then you will love these two which naturally work amazing as a pair but are equally as good on their own.
