When you are looking at Nubian Heritage products you’ll be oohing and aahing over all the amazing scents and combinations they have to offer: Coconut & Papaya, Olive Oil & Green Tea, Mango Butter – to name a few. So why is it that I’m oohing and aahing over their fragrance-free products instead?samples
If you know anything about me you know that fragrance just isn’t my thing. It started with severe migraines growing up and continuing on through middle age. Several things could either start a migraine or make it worse and scent was a trigger. Now I’ve gotten to the point that I just prefer fragrance-free products in my life. For other people wanting fragrance-free could be that the wonderful bath/body products don’t work with their perfume, body chemistry, or they are allergic. For some it’s that they don’t like adding the chemicals in scented products or that issues like rosacea and eczema make them especially sensitive to fragrant products. I do like some fragrances but given the choice I’m going to pick scent free.
Now after that long “all about me” introduction let me tell you about Nubian Heritage which Lisa, my blog partner, loves because she loves the fragrance (her Coconut & Papaya review). Their Shea Butter & Aloe products are my choice and will continue to grace my body.
Due to common fragrance allergies and skin issues such as rosacea, eczema and irritation, more and more consumers are wary of products with added chemicals and therefore, opting for fragrance-free products.
When looking for a body wash I want one that hydrates, cleanses, and washes cleanly away. I’ve been taking slightly cooler showers after reading the advice of a dermatologist who said that we dry out our skin by using water that’s too hot. I like getting out of the shower and not having my mirrors all steamy and my body freezing from the drastic temperature difference.
But what I really like is the feeling of cleanliness and freshness from this Shea Butter & Aloe fragrance-free Body Wash. It’s soothing,not harsh at all so I feel gently cleansed.
This is the star of this small collection. Both products are enriched with Organic Fair Trade Shea and Cocoa Butter to gently soften and condition your skin. They are also both formulated with Aloe Vera that naturally hydrates and with Vitamin E which is high in antioxidants.
I’ve been using this twice a day and noticing that my body isn’t flaky anymore. I can take off my pants at night and not find my body dandruff falling on the bathroom floor. It feels good whether I’m using it on damp skin after my shower or at night when I’m getting ready for bed. And it doesn’t disturb my sleep which is a giant plus.
This lotion feels so good when I apply it, especially at night after a long day. It’s refreshing and not the least bit greasy. It absorbs within a few minutes so that my jammies don’t cling to me.
Now that I’ve discovered products like Nubian Heritage I’m a much softer person. Now if they’d make this in a hand cream I’d be set but until then the lotion will continue to do double duty.
You can find Nubian Heritage at the Vitamin Shoppe and on their website. If my experience and Lisa’s has anything to tell you it’s that this nicely priced line should be in your life. — Marcia
Passionate about sharing our products and the cultures they come from, we’ve been guided by our community’s demand for wellness products that spoke to their unique needs and have drawn on the rich healing philosophies of these communities around the globe
Guided- by the legacy of ancient Nubia, the world’s first melting pot, we remix global healing traditions into modern wellness solutions. Ancient Nubia was once a center of cultural trade — a place where goods, ideas, and customs from across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean came together, influenced each other, and then spread across the ancient world. That’s the inspiration behind Nubian Heritage. We bring together traditional healing practices, cultural wisdom and indigenous ingredients, remix them and create modern natural solutions for skin and hair. This is our mission: to make cultural exchange the model for transforming the global community.
