The Body Shop Shea

 Hello all,

how are you today? I hope everyone is in great condition. This is a fasting month for moslem and soon it will be Hari Raya, there's a lot of things going on, especially in Indonesia.

Talking about fasting, I heard from some friends of mine, their skin also takes it's toll. From chapped lips to flaky skin due to the dryness from within. As for me, my dry skin already suffering not from fasting, but from air conditioner, warm water in every shower and soaps. Yes, most soaps doesn't just clean the skin, it stripe the skin off from moisture. In the long term, the skin will age faster than the skin with ample hydration.

That's why when The Body Shop shea collection can be a great help for people like me.


The series that I have comes with Shower Cream, Whip Body Lotion and Body Butter.

Here's my review:

The shower cream doesn't lather much, it is more like lotion, hmm like a rich creamy cleansing oil. It cleans the skin but at the end, it doesn't make the skin dry, but more moist and supple. This is a perfect solution for those who have dry skin and afraid of taking a shower. Shea Shwoer Cream is truly unlike any other soaps, it cleanses without drying, in fact, it cleanses while adding moisture to the skin. And the effect is felt for hours, especially when lotion and body butter is added, the moisture can last for 24-36 hours.

Talking about lotion, the next item is Whip Body Lotion, a formula that feels creamy yet light at the same time but the shea formula helps seal the moisture within and doesn't let the dryness evoke. My skin feels so good and the calming scent from shea also wonderful. This is perfect for a day use as it kept the skin moist but not as heavy as the body butter.

On the other hand, the Body Butter is perfect for those with very dry skin. It protects the skin for the whole day. For those who are like me, with normal to dry skin condition, will perhaps use it on night time only, so when waking up, the skin will be very soft and like a baby, so smooth.

Use the body butter on elbows and knees, plus on chapped heels, use them abundantly, cover them with socks and sleep. In the morning, notices the far more smoother skin. Repeat the routine of using the body butter as a foot 'sleeping mask' nightly, within a week, you'll a remarkable result. Same goes with the hands, use a lot of body butter nightly and cover them with gloves too. See the differences within days.

Thank you so much The Body Shop Indonesia for the lovely products.
