Product Review – EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Line

With the cooler months approaching here in NY, it’s the perfect time for me to use the Coconut Shea line by EDEN BodyWorks. 

I have extremely dry, eczema prone skin year round, so the more moisturized I keep my skin, the better. EDEN BodyWorks was kind enough to send me their Coconut Shea Body Wash, Body Lotion and Hand Cream, so here’s the scoop!

I am IN LOVE! All of the products smell like heaven, with a light coconut scent. The Body Wash has a creamy lather and a little goes a long way. Follow that up with the Body Lotion and your skin will thank you. It moisturizes, absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy. 

My favorite of all is the Hand Cream! I’m a nurse and I’m constantly washing my hands, but I sure don’t need “nurse hands.” I’ve been following up my hand washing with the Coconut Shea Hand Cream to keep the dryness away. I think I’m all set for Winter! 

Definitely try EDEN BodyWorks’ Coconut Shea Body Wash, Body Lotion and Hand Cream. Thank me later!

Product Review – Hard To Find Camille Rose Naturals

I got some goodies from one of my faaavorite brands… Camille Rose Naturals!

Let me start off by saying that these particular products are super hard to come by. One is the Marula Swirl Deep Hydration Conditioner. This product was introduced in July 2017 at CurlFest in Brooklyn, NY. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend and I tried my best to get my hands on this, but was unsuccessful. 

A lovely Instagrammer messaged me and told me that they periodically add a few to the site, so I should check frequently. Lo and behold, I was finally able to snag it. 

The other products are two different leave-ins that were a part of a trio called The Leave-in Collection. I got the Honey (Hydrate) and the Latte (Define). 

Today for my wash session, I used the Marula Swirl Deep Hydration conditioner. I immediately noticed it has great slip and I was able to detangle my hair very easily. The smell is amazing as all of their products are. I left it in for longer than I planned to. You know how it is… you start deep conditioning and you get caught up doing other things. 

My hair felt great after I rinsed it out. This conditioner is much lighter than their Algae Renew Deep Conditioner and even their Coconut Water Penetrating  Hair Treament. It is similar to the Moroccan Pear Conditioning Custard, but wayyyy more slip. 
I applied the Honey (Hydrate) leave-in after washing my hair. I was a bit concerned that my hair would feel sticky because the first ingredient is Honey and castor oil is pretty high on the list also. Castor oil is heavy and tends to feel a bit sticky too. 

This leave-in was better than I expected. It feels heavy when you pour it into your hand, but it’s super easy to work it into damp hair. There was no stickiness in my hair. My hair felt so soft and moisturized after. What more could you ask for?

Have you tried any of these? What were your thoughts?

Stay tuned for my thoughts on the Latte Leave-In!
