Shea Treats From The Body Shop

I'm pretty sure you know by now that I'm a big fan of using aloe in my hair, in my skincare routine and have even used an aloe based toothpaste. Aloe is known as a miracle plants that has helped battle many different issues in our daily lives, and has amazing qualities as a moisturiser. However, another all natural moisturiser that I'm becoming slightly obsessed with is shea butter, and you'll be surprised with all the amazing nutrients it provides. 

Shea butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection and provides the skin with essential nutrients necessary for our day to day lifestyle. However, it needs to be said that shea butter does far more than just simply moisturising our skin, it also acts like an anti-inflammatory and has anti-aging components. By having one too many late nights with my daughter, this is something that I really need now. There are so many ways that you can use shea into your beauty routines, the rich buttery consistency makes it ideal for a natural eye cream, lip balms and of course it's amazing as a body butter. 

For first things first, shea butter has amazing qualities as a moisturiser with all the natural vitamins and fatty acids that make shea butter incredibly nourishing and moisturising for the skin. However, not only that it actually been proven to reduce inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne. As I have said before shea butter is a great for natural collagen production and contains so many different vitamins and acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent it from drying. Shea is amazing and something that I need to introduce into my skincare routine. 

So now that you know all the amazing qualities that shea butter has I wanted to tell you all about my shea treat from the body shop that I cannot help but obsess over. I have to say that I'm pretty lucky that one of my friends is a body shop representative so I can get to try little treats like this. How perfect would this little box for Christmas, to say thank you or just because you want to treat yourself. This beauty cube with mini bathtime treats includes Shea Shower Cream, Shea Body Whip, and Taupe Mini Bath Lily enriched with Community Trade shea butter from Ghana, that leaves skin feeling softer and subtly scented.

Shea Shower Cream. RRP | £5.00

A rich moisturising soap-free shower cream that leaves your skin feeling nourished, softer and freshly cleansed. I really like the shower creams from the body shop as they don't dry out my dry skin and keep my skin feeling soft and moisturised. The scent isn't overpowering which I like as I don't like products that are overly scented. I have really sensitive skin and throughout the year I really suffer eczema and so this shower cream is perfect for my dry and sensitive skin. 

Shea Body Whip. RRP | £5.00

Lightweight yet incredibly hydrating, this lotion is sure to whip up your moisturising ritual. Your skin will feel smoother, nourished and silky-soft to the touch. This product is quite amazing, it smells great and feels great. It's not too pricey and is quite easy to find in different places. I love this size of the little collection as I am able to take them with us when we are exploring adventures, but more importantly this body whip has really helped to soften my skin.
