Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe is the perfect choice for fragrance-free bath and body

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?

Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe

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.

Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe Body Wash

Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe

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.

Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe Body Lotion

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.

Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe

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.

Nubian Heritage Shea Butter & Aloe Lotion

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

 

Their story:

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.

Four favorites from AmLactin for beating dry skin blues!

Four favorites from AmLactin for beating dry skin blues!

Summer is my favorite season for many reasons but I think the biggest one is that my skin stays soft and hydrated since it doesn’t have to deal with dry indoor heat. As soon as the coolness of fall descends I start getting itchy and I know it’s time to break out my heavy hitting body moisturizers. Some of my favorites come from AmLactin.

samples affiliate links

AmLactin has serious skin relief that is easily available, easy on the pocketbook, and easy to use. Plus, the selection of products is impressive. Here are my top four favorites for beating the dreaded indoor heat.

AmLactin Ultra Smoothing Intensly Hydrating Cream

AmLactin Ultra Smoothing Intensly Hydrating Cream

AmLactin Ultra Smoothing Intensely Hydrating Cream

  1.  AmLactin Ultra Smoothing Intensely Hydrating Cream ($13.80)  This is a magnificent hydrating cream for tackling Keratosis Pilaris, aka ‘KP’. I have these tiny bumps on my upper arms, and nothing gets rid of them like this moisturizing lotion. I love that this is fragrance free, so it doesn’t compete with any other scents I am wearing. It does tingle a bit when I put it on, but that sensation is very mild and short-lived. You can use this anywhere on the body and even the face, according to the packaging, but I save it specifically for my arms. It makes that KP a thing of the past and keeps dry patches from forming.

    AmLactin Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion

    AmLactin Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion

    AmLactin Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion

  2. AmLactin Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion ($14)  AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion is a workhorse body lotion. This is the one to keep next to the sink in every bathroom, the one you want to always have available for guests. It’s pH balanced for skin with 12% lactic acid and it keeps skin beautifully moisturized. It promotes cell exfoliation so all the good stuff is able to penetrate and everyone loves this fragrance-free, gentle moisturizer. Get several bottles so you never run out.  

    AmLactin Rapid Relief Restoring Lotion + Ceramides

    AmLactin Rapid Relief Restoring Lotion + Ceramides

    AmLactin Rapid Relief Restoring Lotion + Ceramides

  3. AmLactin Rapid Relief Restoring Lotion + Ceramides ($16) When I get itchy this is what I reach for to get instant relief. Rough, flaky, itchy skin is gone immediately with this miracle cream. This is thicker and more emollient than the other lotions – it takes a while to soak in, but once it does it sure does a fantastic job of taking care of stressed out skin! The bottle says 24 hour relief but I typically apply in the morning after showering and then slather it on again at night before bed during the really cold months just to keep super dry skin at bay.

    AmLactin Foot Repair Foot Cream Therapy

    AmLactin Foot Repair Foot Cream Therapy

    AmLactin Foot Repair Foot Cream Therapy

  4. AmLactin Foot Repair Foot Cream Therapy ($10)  Such a nice foot cream!! While this gives instant relief and immediate results to dry, cracked skin and calluses, it really impresses when you use this regularly. Keep it on your bed stand and a few nights a week put a thin layer on your feet and wear socks as long as you can stand it. I can only keep them on for a few hours before I feel like I am suffocating…am I the only weird one like that? Then I have to take them off and put at least one foot out from under the covers. I know, I’m strange. Anyway, the longer you can keep those socks on, the better your feet get – split and cracked skin heals right up, and calluses smooth and shrink. It’s a beautiful thing!

I love AmLactin for many reasons, but mainly because the products really work and they are very affordable. It’s almost time for that dry indoor heat to kick in, so the next time you are at the drugstore remember to stock up and you’ll be ready – you may even make it through the season without any dry itchy skin at all because you are so prepared!  – Lisa

Smells so good! Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya body products

samples

Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya body products

Smelling fantastic from head to toe thanks to products that are environmentally responsible, animal-friendly, and free of all the bad stuff like synthetics and sulfates is as easy as taking a quick trip to Whole Foods or the Vitamin Shoppe (or even just surfing the web). Your quick trip will bring you to this amazing line, Nubian Heritage. I was initially intrigued because they have a full line of Coconut & Papaya products and when it comes to coconut…well, I’m kind of easy. Actually, Nubian Heritage has 15 different collections, from Abyssinian Oil & Chia Seed to Ivorian Cocoa & Hazelnut. Their body products take care of you from head to toe, but before I tell you about those here’s a little more background on the company.

Nubian Heritage first started in Harlem 25 years ago. Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman were college roommates and they wanted to make products using traditional African recipes with fair trade, organic ingredients. In fact, “they were inspired by the legacy of ancient Nubia, which was once a center of cultural trade – a place where goods, ideas, and customs from across Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East were exchanged and spread across the world. The street vendors brought together global healing practices, cultural wisdom and indigenous ingredients to create modern wellness solutions that were highly sought after.”

The product range available at Nubian Heritage is incredible and I am just blown away at the quality of every product I tested. Everything is wonderful, and the prices are fabulously affordable.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion

Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion ($13): Wow, this smells sooo good!! The Body Lotion is a light, creamy lotion packed full of great ingredients:  coconut oil, papaya extract, shea butter, aloe vera, and vitamin E. The papaya extract has papain enzymes, which act as a gentle exfoliator, making skin even smoother and softer. Skin is super hydrated and feels fabulous. The bottle is big and $13 is a great price – a little goes a long way so it’s a nice value, especially for an environmentally conscious company.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Wash

Coconut & Papaya Body Wash ($13): The Body Wash smells just as delicious as the Body Lotion and I love showering up with it. It’s a very gentle cleanser but I definitely feel clean afterward, even after a grueling, sweaty workout. Ingredients include lots of hydration for skin, including coconut oil, shea butter, aloe vera, and papaya.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Deodorant

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Deodorant

Coconut & Papaya 24 Hour Deodorant ($9):  This is a glycerin/silica/cornstarch based deodorant that stands out for me because it smells so darn good. I am really crazy about this scent! The fact that it also has coconut oil and doesn’t flake or give underarms a white cast is a plus, too.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream

Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream ($10): The Hand Cream is much thicker than the Body Lotion, so thick it takes some effort to squeeze it out of the tube. The scent, again, is to die for…juicy papaya and deep, rich coconut. This is what you want to slather on dry elbows, scaly knees, and frayed cuticles.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand & Body Scrub

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand & Body Scrub

Coconut & Papaya Body Cleansing Smoothie (formerly Hand & Body Scrub – $12): Nubian Heritage recently went through some repackaging and I believe they changed the name of this skin exfoliator. Ingredients include coconut oil, papaya, organic shea butter, and vanilla extract. You can use this on your body in the shower to soften rough areas or for an all-over exfoliation. I like to leave it right by the sink and use it on my hands and cuticles. My hands feel totally incredible afterward.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs

Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs ($15): These effervescent bath bombs really are the bomb! They are made with coconut oil and papaya extract, so like the other products in this line they subtly exfoliate and create glowy skin while also hydrating like crazy. Why not get that lovely skin treatment while relaxing in warm bath water? Aaahhhh….sounds great to me!!

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap

Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap ($5)  This lovely big bar of soap is just wonderful – it has that great coconut and papaya scent, and the soap is full of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. It’s exactly what you want next to the sink so you can relax for that one moment when washing your hands, transported to somewhere tropical and fabulous.

Nubian Heritage has literally hundreds of culturally authentic natural products that are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, DEA, silicones, mineral oil, petroleum, synthetic fragrance and artificial color, and never tested on animals.  You can find them online at NubianHeritage.com or at the Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Foods and other fine retailers.  – Lisa

SeabuckWonders delights me and has a giveaway for you

SeabuckWonders Body Lotion and Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails

I’ve read a lot about SeabuckWonders in the past but truthfully I never was enticed by it. That was a mistake and I’m here to admit it. I am using two of their products and am ready for more.

Sea buckthorn is considered to be one of nature’s most balanced fruits. SeabuckWonders uses the finest certified organic Sea Buckthorn from Tibet. It’s rich in anti-oxidants and contains the highest level of the rare Omega-7 that is great for skin as well as used internally for cardio-vascular, gastrointestinal, liver health, and immune support. My internist gave these a big thumbs up when I called to ask about the Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails supplement.supplement police photoI am a supplement taker and I know not everyone is but I believe in adding things that my body is probably missing from my diet. I do encourage you to check with your doctor prior to using any supplement though as I’m not in the medical field. I’ve taken several different types of products for my hair, skin & nails but not all are as loaded with Omega oils as SeabuckWonders. I was advised to take Omegas for heart health so with SeabuckWonders Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails I’m taking 2 of these daily to give me natural support for my complexion, nails, hair, and heart.

SeabuckWonders Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails

The recommended dose is two of these vegetarian softgels. That provides 5000 mcg of Biotin along with 800 mg of Organic Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil (Omega 7) and 200 mg of Organic Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil (Omega 3).

Omega 7 provides deep hydration and boosts skin cell functions. Omegas 3, 6 & 9 nourish and restore the natural balance of the skin. Biotin is a B vitamin that is crucial for supporting healthy functions in the body. It improves the metabolism of fatty acids and amino acids. Biotin can stop dry brittle nails, problem skin and moisturize hair that breaks. Combining sea buckthorn oil with biotin replenishes strength like no other supplement can.

SeabuckWonders Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails

As someone who has lost hair due to health problems I love how much thicker and fuller my hair has become. In addition I know that it’s keeping my nails stronger.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion

The other product I’m using from SeabuckWonders is their Himalyan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion which is a perfect addition to my summer routine. This lovely lotion is lightweight and gets absorbed beautifully. But it’s not so lightweight that it’s like applying nothing on my skin. The lotion feels and looks rich but it doesn’t smother your skin, it lets it breathe while we’re wearing lighter clothes in the warm weather.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion

I keep it on the shelf in my shower so that I can apply it on my damp body and it makes my body feel nourished. I’ll grab it out of the shower to use on my hands as a hand lotion too. I actually should buy an extra to keep in my guest bath as a hand lotion.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion

There’s a very pleasant light natural orange scent from natural essential orange oil. It doesn’t last long which is too bad since I like it so much. It contains Omega Fatty Acids 7, 3, 6 & 9. These anti-oxidants are super for rejuvenating and replenishing the skin’s natural balance as well as for softening skin to be its silkiest. I love the way it feels on my skin. And it won’t interfere with any other fragrance you might use.

These are very reasonably priced items that you can purchase separately or together as a set. Amazon has the best prizes that I’ve found, especially on the body lotion.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION:  SeabuckWonders has kindly offered a set of the Body Lotion and Hair, Skin & Nails supplement to two US Beauty Info Zone subscribers. I’m excited about this and wish I could win myself. As usual you must be a Beauty Info Zone email subscriber and comment on the giveaway for your entries to be counted.

You can’t go wrong with these drugstore classics: Carmex, Sally Hansen, and Jergens

overwhelmedWalking into the drugstore these days can be overwhelming…the sheer volume of choices is enough to make you want to back out the door and put shopping for beauty products on your list for another day. For those times when you are in doubt, here are three classic drugstore lines with my favorite products that always perform.       samples3 Classic Drug Store Brands

1.  Sally Hansen Nail Polish:  this is such a great line for nail polish, especially for my addiction to nude-ish colors. The polish goes on so easily with the flat, wide brush – in fact, I do believe Sally Hansen polishes have my favorite applicator brush of all time. There is a huge selection of shades available.

Some of my favorite nude-ish shades include #325 Au Nature-al ($7.99), a classy perfect nude, and #161 Shell We Dance, a pretty light pink.

Carmex Classic Lip Balm Carmex Classic Lip Balm

Carmex Classic Lip Balm

2.  I love the Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar ($1.59) for preventing dry and flaky lips. The classic version comes in the familiar yellow jar and it has that scent that takes me way back every time I open it. Lip skin doesn’t have any sebaceous glands, which is why they need continual moisturizing. My only problem with my Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar is that my husband keeps stealing it, so now I always get two just in case. Carmex® Lip Balm can be found at retailers nationwide. For more information, please visit: www.mycarmex.com.Jergens Oil-Infused MoisturizerJergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

3.  Looking for an awesome body moisturizer?  You can’t go wrong with Jergens. Right now they have out their Oil-Infused Monoi and Coconut Moisturizers ($4.99 each) which have the classic Jergens® body lotion infused with luxe, skin-softening oils. They are lightweight but give heavy-duty hydration to skin, while also making it soft and luminous. And the scents are so pretty!Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

• Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizer With Nourishing Monoi: Harvested from the Tahitian Garden Flower and known for its intoxicating floral scent, Monoi Oil is a potent skin soother that’s been used by women for centuries. Combined with Jergens® deeply conditioning, protein-packed formula, it locks in moisture, smooths texture and tone, and leaves skin visibly radiant and softly scented.Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

• Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizer With Refreshing Coconut Oil: Fortified with the deeply penetrative, hydrating properties of premium Coconut Oil— along with its invigorating, tropical scent—this enriching body lotion gives your skin instant luminosity, a superbly soft texture, and long-lasting moisture for a gorgeous, all-day glow.

Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

You can find these new Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizers exclusively at Target stores nationwide.

Don’t let the huge variety of beauty products at the drugstore overwhelm you…stick with the basics and remember these classics.  – Lisa
