It’s like Christmas in every box.
So, over the weekend, I recently received a new Shea Moisture box. As I did the last box, I will do a full review of the contents inside with the pros and cons. Ready? Let’s go!
This Shea Moisture box was catered more to wellness and had a lot of products dedicated specifically for that. Bear just happened to be sick so this box was right on time! Let’s go over each one by one:
Eucalyptus and African Water Mint wash and bubble bath.
I really like it because it’s nice and light. It’s not overpowering and it has the nice touch of eucalyptus and mint that’s perfect for the baby’s nose. I know Bear felt a lot better after a nice hot bath with this.
Pros: Easy on the nose.
Cons: It might be too easy on the nose for adults.
Bottom Line: I recommend it for babies. If you have a sensitive nose, it might be perfect for you as an adult.
Eucalyptus and African Water Mint Lotion
Just like with the accompanying bubble bath and wash, it also has a nice fragrance. The plus about this lotion is it’s thick, but not too heavy. It was perfect on my dry skin and Bear had no complaints at all.
Pros: A little goes a long way. It’s not as thick as a butter but it’s much thicker than regular lotion.
Cons: You might squeeze out too much by accident, hence the above tip.
Bottom Line: I do recommend this lotion! Buy it!
Eucalyptus and African Water Mint Baby Chest Rub
This is supposed to be a friendlier, child version of the widely-popular Vicks Chest Rub. While I can’t say for sure it helped Bear breathe better, he had no complaints when I put it on his chest and back.
I have to say, however, because this is just as light as the above body wash and lotion, you may not know for sure it’s working.
Pros: Goes on relatively easy with no sticky residue.
Cons: Not sure if it actually works.
Bottom Line: Buyer Beware. I can’t say for sure if this works.
Now something strictly for the adults…keep on scrollin’, Mom and Dad.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
I love me some essential oils. I love them so much I actually considered creating my own body care line (still debating on doing that). So, I was super jazzed about opening this gem.
Despite how light the other products were, this eucalyptus oil is the real deal. Your senses will thank you! It makes the entire home smell just wonderful and ugh…I wish they actually sent more of this.
Pros: Not light at all, very fragrant, smells wonderful.
Cons: It might be too heavy on your nose. Not for child use.
Bottom Line: If you love essential oils, pick this one up!
African Water Mint & Ginger Bath Sugar Cubes
I don’t have a bathtub so I can’t do this review in terms of a bathtub experience. I can, however, do this review in terms of using these sugar cubes of giving myself a mani and pedi.
The cubes are strongly-scented. In other words, you open the jar and your nose will get a whiff of goodness. In water, the cubes dissolve very quickly with a fuzzy feeling over your toes (especially, OMG, on your toes!).
After soaking them for about ten minutes, you can do your usual scrub and then use the body lotion on the toes. For an extra bonus, wear socks for a bit so your feet can feel every softer.
Pros: Great smell, and has multiple uses other than bath.
Cons: Might be too strong for your nose.
Bottom Line: I do recommend these cubes!
I also received some swag! A towel to help dry off my feet and a t-shirt!
