Today, I’m doing an entire product review of the entire contents of the Shea Moisture box I received from them. I’ll speak from a mom’s perspective but also from my personal one since I also used the same products on me!
Disclaimer: I am a Shea Moisture Ambassador, so I’m giving honest reviews of this box, regardless of how awesome they are (or how much they suck. I keeps it real.).
Last week, Bear and I received our first Shea Moisture box and it had a lot of great stuff in it. At first I was concerned because the products were tailored to babies and Bear’s a preschooler. I decided to go ‘head and try it out on him and me as well! This product review is different because I’m going to do a quick write-up of each individual product. For the hair products, I have Type 4 hair. Bear has Type 3 hair, so keep that in mind.
First up: the baby wash and shampoo.
I really liked this one because it was nice and fragrant. I normally don’t use the same wash for the body and hair but Bear seemed to love it. He even said how he liked how he smelled!
In terms of the shampoo for me, it lathered very well, with no residue.
Bottom Line: I do recommend for adults and kids!
The blueberries and marshmallow root detangler and leave-in (blue label).
OMG. Can I tell you have much I love this joint??? This is probably my new favorite detangler and that’s a hard sell to me with my coils! It has a lot of slip and detangling Bear’s hair was a breeze!
Look at those curls!
AREN’T THEY FABULOUS??
2nd day curls. Annnnnnnnnd, you probably needed to see a four year old with a puppy right now.
So yeah, that’s nice but what about Mommy?
It made my curls pop! The detangler, I found, I didn’t have to use a lot of it since it was also a leave-in conditioner. And OMG, it smelled so good! (Yes, I took out my braids but never fear, they’re coming back soon! And a different color!)
Bottom Line: Highly recommend! Even if you don’t have kids, use this on yo self! Treat yo self!
Bear liked it and I did. I didn’t find it moisturized my body as well as other lotions I’ve used. I also have super dry skin so the thicker the lotion the better for me. But for a child, I thought the body lotion was suitable.
Bottom Line: Great for kids, but mileage may vary for adults.
I didn’t try it on Bear because I wasn’t sure how his skin would respond to it. (I’m still trying to figure out his allergens.) However, I tried it and my skin loved it! It loved it like a hungry man at a buffet.
Bottom Line: Great for adults, but mileage may vary for kids.
The only product I didn’t review because we don’t have a bathtub. However, I plan to give this to a friend who does a have bathtub and see if it’s suitable. I’ll report back!
It’s cute! LOL. I can’t say too much because I obviously don’t have a newborn or infant. I do plan to give that to Bear’s godmother who’s due any day now.
Overall, it was a great first box! I’m really happy with it overall.
If you have the Shea Moisture box, what did you like? What other Shea Moisture products have you tried?
