SheaMoisture recently introduced an all natural shaving collection, just for women. SheaMoisture is a leading natural skincare company and one of our favorite brands when it comes to “natural” skin care products. I’m pretty excited about their three new hair removal products. Here’s the lowdown…
If a Brazilian isn’t quite in your budget, consider the Honey & Black Seed Sugar Wax. It effectively removes hair on legs, bikini line, arms and underarms – naturally and without the mess of a hot wax. Using an ancient Egyptian recipe, SheaMoisture’s Sugar Wax contains only all natural ingredients that include Honey (a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory), Black Seed Oil (has healing properties) and raw Sugar. It is ideal for use on sensitive skin and delicate areas of the body. Apply this wax at body/room temperature in the same direction as hair growth. Take strip and place it over the sugar wax, leaving some strip at the end. Rub hand flat over the strip to ensure wax is firmly attached to hair. Holding skin taut, remove strip quickly with one, quick pull in opposite direction of hair growth. It’s a steal at $11.99! You’ll have amazingly smooth skin for less than one quarter the price of having it done at the salon. (Find it at select Target stores.)
If waxing isn’t your thing, then stock up on Shea Moisture Shave Coconut & Hibiscus Shave Butter Crème . This nutrient-rich shave crème is ridiculously smooth and creamy. It naturally preps skin for hair removal by softening and lifting the hair away from the skin. It’s made with organic Coconut, Tamanu and Argan oils, Avocado and Shea Butters, and African Black Soap. Sounds good enough to eat! This shave butter protects your skin against irritation, razor burn, razor bumps and ingrown hairs, while soothing, hydrating and healing. It’s especially great for those of you that don’t want to spring for the Porsche of all Razors and opt for the more budget friendly disposables. Gently lather cream in hands and apply thin layer to wet or dry skin. Rinse your razor often and shave with the grain. SRP: $8.99. (Get it at Target or on Amazon.com
When you are all done removing the hair from your legs (or wherever else!) you can help prevent the bothersome re-appearance of hair regrowth with Honey & Black Seed After Shave Regenerative Lotion. Not only can you slow hair re-growth with this all-natural, post-hair removal treatment, it also soothes and regenerates skin, while helping to prevent razor burn, bumps, discoloration and other skin irritations commonly caused by shaving and waxing. Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf extract naturally slows hair re-growth, while promoting finer, less coarse hair for easier shaving and waxing. Apply immediately after shaving or waxing. Re-apply daily for healthy, soft skin as well as to slow hair re-growth. SRP: $8.99. (Get it at select Target stores.)
Disclaimer: I received one of each of the products above to test and review. I will do a follow-up post later this week with my results after using each of the products.
