SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion Review
This lotion caught my eye when I saw the words “100% Virgin Coconut Oil“! Shocker! As you know, I’m obsessed with coconut oil and I’m always looking out for beauty products that contain this superstar ingredient. I purchased the SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion and was excited to give it a try! For those of you not familiar with the SheaMoisture Brand, here’s a little bit of history and information about the company.
SheaMoisture is a cruelty-free brand which I LOVE. Their products are natural & organic and contain No Parabens, Phthalates, Paraffin, Mineral Oil, DEA, Petroleum, Formaldehyde or Propylene. Sounds REALLY good! They are a fair trade company with 10% of their sales going to women led businesses and to support communities that supply ingredients for their products.
A Bit of History on the SheaMoisture Brand…
Sofi Tucker started selling Shea Nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling Shea Butter, African Black Soap and her homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside. Sofi Tucker was the Grandmother of the company’s current owners and SheaMoisture is her legacy.
OK, I’m ALL In! Anytime you’ve got 100% Virgin Coconut Oil AND homemade skin preparations passed down by Grandma, you can bet it’s going to be REALLY good stuff 🙂
Now on to the SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion..
The star ingredient in this lotion is 100% virgin coconut oil. It also contains coconut milk which conditions and soothes, organic raw shea butter which deeply moisturizes and Acacia Senegal (also known as gum acacia) that helps seal in moisture. Together, these key ingredients make for a fabulous blend that provides much needed hydration and replenishment our skin needs.
Texture & Scent
The texture of SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion is very thick but it spreads easily onto the skin and absorbs quickly. There is no greasy residue which I appreciate! It has a very light scent of pure coconut. The scent lingers for several hours but is not overwhelming. My only complaint is with the packaging. The lotion comes in a squeeze bottle and it is really difficult to squeeze out of the bottle. As you can see from my pictures, the bottle loses it shape very quickly and doesn’t bounce back. I would suggest that the company package this lotion in a Tub or a Pump Bottle.
I’ve been using SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion daily and have been applying it right after my shower while my skin is still damp. I am super pleased with the results from this lotion. It leaves my skin with just the right amount of moisture and feels great. I have found that it helps with the overall appearance of the skin and improves skin firmness and tone.
Price $9.99 – $10.99 USD
At under $10.00 & packed with amazing good for your skin ingredients, SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion is a bargain! I will definitely repurchase this product!
