Natural Products Purchase from Coastal Scents

Coastal Scents had an Earth Day sale. This sale lasted for a week. All of their natural products were 35% off. This included their soaps, butter, oils, and essential oils.

Since I’ve already been using the shea oil on my hair, it seemed logical to order another bottle.

Image

I also ordered more of the shea butter. My daughters have also been using shea butter. Winter was very hard on my oldest daughter’s skin. Regular lotion wasn’t working. I gave her some shea butter to try. She no longer has dry patches on her skin. My youngest daughter had burned her hand a little using a curling iron. I told her to try some shea butter since this was a minor burn. The shea butter worked on that as well.

I ordered the cocoa butter because it was on sale too.

Image

I was also given a sample of the black soap. I’ve read great reviews about this soap and can’t wait to try it.

Still Using My Winter Beauty Routine

The calendar may say it’s Spring, however; Winter hasn’t quite let go in my neck of the woods. I live in the northeast section of the United States. This past Winter was listed as one of the coldest on record. There were even some below zero days and a lot of snow. Pittsburgh, PA has had some warm days but that weather hasn’t lasted.

Winter is extremely hard on my skin and hair. Here are the products I used.

Image

  • Ion Reconstructor
  • Shea Oil
  • Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner Repair Cream
  • Trader Joe’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter
  • Carol’s Daughter Tui Leave In Conditioner

Image

I used the Carol’s Daughter Tui Leave In Conditioner to add extra moisture to my hair. The dry air makes my hair feel crunchy. This leave in conditioner eliminated that.

Image

I used the Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter as a part of the LOC method (leave in, oil, cream) in my hair routine. This cream is the last step of that.

Image

The bitter cold caused dry patches on my face. I used the Organic Virgin Coconut Oil from Trader Joe’s to remedy that.

Image

The shea oil was a part of the LOC method in my hair routine. I used to use castor oil to seal my ends. I like the shea oil much better.

Image

I hardly used traditional lotion during the Winter. My skin wasn’t ashy at all when I used the shea butter.

Image

I’ve gotten in the habit giving my hair protein treatments. That’s why I use Ion Reconstructor as a deep conditioner.

Image

I’ve read some really positive reviews on the Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner Repair Cream. This is the first step in LOC method of my hair routine.

I will probably make some adjustments to my beauty routine once the weather warms up. One thing for certain I am keeping the products for the LOC hair method and the Ion Reconstructor. They seem to be working.
