Beauty by Shea 100% Raw Unrefined African Shea Butter Review and Giveaway! Ends 9/01/14!

I've used several products with Shea Butter in them over the years and have always really liked how they leave my skin feeling. I was anxiously awaiting my first bag of 100% Raw Unrefined African Shea Butter from Beauty by Shea. 

Product Details (According to company)
  • Pure, raw, organic Shea Butter, nothing else added in
  • Imported from Ghana
  • Naturally rich in essential vitamins for beautiful skin
  • For topical use only, on hair and skin
  • Can also be used in handmade soaps, conditioners, and lotions
  • Use daily or often for beautiful, moisturized, and luminous skin


 With this Shea Butter, a little goes a very long way.  To use is it simply take a small amount, like the size of a dime or nickel to start, and allow it to melt in the palms of your hand.  Rubbing your palms together to soften the Shea Butter helps too.  Then apply to skin in the desired area.

My Thoughts on This Product
 This was the first time that I used Raw Shea Butter. I was really happy to try it out because I've heard and read so many good things that raw shea butter can be used for.

This particular product came sealed and as a pretty big sized block of butter. I was surprised at the quantity and very thrilled to start putting it to use. I quickly jumped online for some good "recipes" to use it in.
I found several for lotions and for hair. Since I've used shea butter lotions, I really wanted to see what it could do for my hair.
I put a tablespoon in a little bowl and heated it only for about 6 seconds. 

I didn't want to make it into oil and I hear it's actually best to heat it in other ways so as not to destroy the butter...but I heated it to the point where it was not entirely oil form.
I mixed it in with half a tbs of olive oil, half a tbs of coconut oil, a tbs of conditioner, and a few drops of lavender oil. Then I applied it to my damp curls, wrapped with plastic wrap and then wrapped a hot towel (from the dryer) on it. I left it on for a little longer than an hour and OMG, the results were excellent!

My curls look so defined and bouncy and shiny after. Not the best lighting here, but in person, they were awesome! I love Raw Shea Butter! I will continue to do this every week or so because I love it so much.

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new.
