Nature’s Shea Butter Purchase (Gearing up for Fall)


Nature’s Shea Butter had a sale earlier this month when everything was 30% off.

Nature2                        I’ve used the one ounce size of the Nilotica Shea Butter. This sale gave me the chance to purchase the six ounce size of the East African shea butter.

I am a fan of the handmade soaps from Nature’s Shea Butter. Some shower gels are far too drying on my skin. The handmade soaps are gentle and cleanse quite nicely.

Nature Sample                    Ocean Mist (another generous soap sample) 🙂

Nature’s Shea Butter Purchase from HauteLook (Beauty Items I Needed)

I have been patiently waiting for a good bit of the Summer for Nature’s Shea Butter to appear on HauteLook again. This time around I stuck to beauty items I actually needed. My package arrived just in time for the start of Fall. I was also out of the White Tea & Shea Anti-Aging Facial Cream.

HauteLook Nature

HauteLook Nature2                       The White Tea & Shea Anti-Aging Cream is a great moisturizer. My youngest daughter also uses this. Maybe I should have bought two.

HauteLook Nature3                                                                                     I make it a point to use the 100% All Natural Organic Argan Oil at night. I will also use the argan oil under my moisturizer when the weather gets cold. I feel like I have an extra layer of protection for my skin.

I do plan on placing another order the next time Nature’s Shea Butter is on HauteLook. 🙂

Another Crown Brush Purchase from HauteLook

Well you see what had happened was, Crown Brush was on HauteLook again. LOL! I was on the fence if I was going to make another Crown Brush purchase so soon. I decided to get the HauteLook Exclusive 15 Color Foundation Palette and Brush. This deal was too good to pass up.

Natural Products Purchase from Coastal Scents

Coastal Scents                                                  Coastal Scents recently had a sale on all of their natural products. I was really low on shea butter and black soap. These two items have been my trusted beauty must haves.

Coastal Scents 3                                                                            The Liquid Black Soap has always intrigued me. It’s worth a try.

Coastal Scents 2

  • Moisturizing Black Soap with Cocoa Butter
  • Moisturizing Black Soap with Shea Butter – Unscented

Coastal Scents 4                         I’ve already used the regular black soap from Coastal Scents. I will be trying these out in my skincare routine.

Coastal Scents 5

Coastal Scents 6                            I don’t like the way my skin feels when I used regular lotion. This was definitely a much needed purchase. 🙂

A Little Something to Add to My Shea Butter

I had a $10 off Groupon I needed to use before it expired. I bought this fragrance set from Now Essential Oils. Just a little something to add to my shea butter. That reminds me. I need to buy more shea butter. LOL!
