Hiya Darlins,


This post contains 4 products from a new discovery for me Shea Moisture, I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed sampling. There is a true history behind this brand and I have taken the liberty of copying their words from their website as it tells the amazing story of the brand.



What the Brand Says

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.

Can you imagine having that history?  I absolutely love it, a brand built from love and family generations and let's face it, something is very very right with a history dating back to 1912!


This was my first experience of the Shea Moisture brand and I have to say it's been a wonderful discovery, so much so I have placed a little order from Boots purely because I wanted to use my points card, at the time of shopping I could only find the hair products on the site. I found everything else here at Look Fantastic  so was able to add to an existing order. Obviously everything is available at SheaMoisture.com

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Soothing Body Wash 384ml 


If you are in need of gentle soothing skincare then this is a daily must,  it keeps your skin from looking dry, flaky and dehydrated.


Key Ingredients 


  • Shea Palm
  • Oats
  • Cocoa Pod Ash
  • Aloe Vera
When you first use this body wash you are hit with the warm vanilla fragrance and will notice tiny black grains in the formula, this is normal. These grains assist in gently sloughing off dead skin cells, the rich lather and fragrance give the body wash a truly luxurious feel. Once out of the shower the fragrance lingers on the skin literally leaving you sniffing yourself it's so soothing.

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Soothing Body Lotion 384ml

This rich butter like formula melts into dry parched skin leaving you with a beautiful gleam but not greasy. Again the fragrance of warm Vanilla leaves you feeling soothed and relaxed, I found the moisture really effective in that it lasted, unlike some moisturises that seem to disappear after a few minutes.  Although it comes in the high street price bracket this is no bargain bucket product,  it's rich, luxurious, soothing and works amazingly well on severely dry skin.

Key Ingredients
  • Oats
  • Aloe
  • Vitamin E
  • Coconut Oil
  • Shea Butter

The combination of these two products really do what they say on bottles - SOOTHE

Key Ingredients
