Shea Moisture African Black Soap Mud Mask
I received this mask in a little skincare gift set that a friend had given me last summer and have just now tried it out! I have never tried any face masks from Shea Moisture, I have sensitive skin so I’m always cautious about trying new brands/products. I have to say, this mask did not irritate my skin at all! The mask goes on so nicely and hardens over time. After removing, my skin felt soooo soft. I definitely will be purchasing the full size of this product! SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask
Products I Don’t Use Everyday
Hi guys! I wanted to share with you some products that I don’t use as frequently in my skin care routine. First up is The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution This is the first time I’ve used an AHA or BHA. I had done some research and many found that this product was a great help for deep acne scars and could possibly help with my hormonal acne. I’ve had this for a little over 3 weeks and have only used it 3 times (once per week). This is the use I would recommend since this is a strong exfoliant. Overall, I like the results so far, but they will not come overnight. Once I use this for a few months I believe I will see an improvement in my skin. Next is SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask This mask is great! It’s a clay mask, but it doesn’t dry tight on your face. It is comfortable to wear and doesn’t weigh down your skin like I feel other clay masks do. I use this product about once per week as well. Also a little goes a long way. I’ve had this tub since February and and I haven’t even used half of it yet. It’s also great to use as a spot treatment. Third is BURT’S BEES - Micellar Cleansing Water I cannot say enough good things about this micellar water. I use it to take my makeup off and also on the days I don’t wear makeup to refresh my skin. This literally works like a magnet. It draws out makeup and dirt so well. This was such an impulse buy because I needed new makeup remover, but I will definitely repurchase! Finally is J.R. WATKINS - Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin Spray This spray is great to spritz on your face in the middle of the day to refresh your skin. I also like to use it as a “setting spray” after I apply my makeup. It just provides an extra boost of hydration and the rosewater is very soothing. Hope you guys enjoy! Let me know your thoughts😊

How I fully transitioned and grew my 4b/c hair
My hair journey is something that means a lot to me. As a child I was always known to have hair so long it reached the middle of my back. Whether my hair was curly, straight, braided or in twists it generated a lot of talk. That’s why when I went natural and lost basically all the length that I somewhat had it was such a shocker. I was natural as a child before I began to get a relaxer at around 3rd grade. It was needed since my mom had just gotten over breast cancer for a second time and my long thick curls were too much for her to take care of. My hair still retained its length, even as I went into middle school but once I hit 9th grade I’d realized something. My length was gone. Now I will say SOOOO many hair mistakes were made when I began doing my own hair in high school. I put too much heat to it, I manipulated it too much, and I didn’t care about my strands enough. I honestly don’t know at what point I realized I wanted to go natural but at the end of my sophomore year I did. My mother who is a very traditional black woman when it comes to hair made it crystal clear there was no way in hell I was getting the big chop I wanted. Because of this I was forced to transition over. I vividly remember the first product I used as a natural being SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie this served a good purpose since my number one goal at the time was curl definition. I don’t mind that as much anymore because I have come to terms with the fact that my hair type is NOT loose curls. Since quarantine that goal has changed. My goal I’m March went from “how do I get my hair to curl” to “okay how do I retain length and keep my hair healthy” and I knew my answer. Braids. I’ll be the one to say I absolutely LOVE braids but I HATE getting them professionally done for so many reasons. The main one being when my scalp gets too dirty the braids gotta go. That is a problem when braids cost 100 and I’m over them in a month 🗿. This pushed me to doing my own braids minus the braiding hair. Every two-three weeks I take my braids out, condition my dry dirty hair, wash the conditioner out, wash my hair, deep condition, and prep my hair for braids. Sometimes I blow dry my hair before I braid it (because I want the length😗) and sometimes I just braid my coily hair as is. This has helped keep my hair healthy and grow it all quarantine. These are the products I’ve used: AFRiCAN PRIDE - Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Leave-in Conditioner AFRiCAN PRIDE - Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Growth Oil DOO GRO - Mega Thick Hair Oil ECOCO - Eco Style Argan Oil Gel ECOCO - Eco Style Professional Styling Gel Black Castor & Flaxseed Oil cantu - Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioning Repair aussie - Miracle Moist 3 Minute Miracle with Avocado for Dry Hair Repair Maui MOISTURE - Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask Aunt Jackie's - Don't Shrink Elongating Curling Gel
Curly Girl Method! I've tried these so you don't need to try again!
I've tried several hair products for curly hair, and these are my favorite! Shampoos SheaMoisture - Argan Oil and Almond Milk Shampoo It smells like milk. I love that and the way this made my hair feel. Very smooth and non-greasy after washing. Conditioners SheaMoisture - Superfruit Complex 10 in 1 Renewal System Conditioner Some people don't like its scent, but I personally can accept it. The moisturizing effect is perfect. TRESemmé - Botanique Nourish + Replenish With Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Conditioner It's affordable and it's so large that you can use it for a long time. Apply it and wait 5-8 minutes, then your hair will be like seaweed. Kinky-Curly - Knot Today, Natural Leave In / Detangler It smells like coconut. I use it as a moisturizer. I have now purchased 3 bottles of this. My hair cannot get enough. It is pricey, but so worth it. It is the best leave in conditioner I have ever tried. The best part about it is it's sans silicones sulfates or waxes. If you're looking for a great detangler that doesn't leave your hair greasy, this is the one for you. Leave-in conditioners SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner It is a little greasy. I brush my hair with this leave in in during the shower and it keeps my hair silky and curls not frizzy Hair masks SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Masque I use it once every two weeks, staying for 15-20 minutes before washing off. After using it, it helps hydrate my hair. It’s very light and doesn’t dry with any residue! It leaves my curls feeling light weight! Curl defining gels DevaCurl - Light Defining Gel Soft Hold No-Crunch Styler I have medium length curly hair and I use about a quarter size for the initial scrunch from ends to root. I touch up around the entire head with another quarter size. Let dry and scrunch to release the cast from the gel. My hair and curls are so happy with this product. It is the holy grail for sure. SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie I use it to apply a little bit to the hair before setting. It makes your hair look a little oily.

Shea moisture shampoo & conditioner review
sheamoisture curl & shine coconut and hibiscus shampoo and conditioner review! SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo Shampoo: This shampoo claims to moisturize and define your curls/waves and it also claims to detangle hair for healthy looking curls/waves! My thoughts: It turns out this does do what it claims to do it moisturizes and makes my curls look a lot healthier overall I absolutely love this shampoo! Conditioner: The claims on this conditioner are the same as the shampoo! Except you only apply to the ends of your hair! My thoughts on the conditioner: I absolutely love this conditioner my ends are very split (I need a haircut) and dry and get very tangled and this conditioner has helped so much with my split ends! I absolutely love this! Overall: sheamoisture is one of my absolute favourite haircare brands what I love about there brand is that they are cruelty free! These two products have changed my hair! ! And they’ve lasted so long! ￼
I’m so so happy that my hair grew so much for the past months! And they are pretty healthy too ! * The first pic is January 1 of 2020 right after I relaxed my hair in the summer of 2019! * In the pictures, my hair are semi wet after I washed them! Here are the products that really helped ! SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo SheaMoisture - Power Greens Conditioner with Moringa & Avocado cantu - Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioning Repair cantu - Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment TROPIC ISLE LIVING - Argan Jamaican Black Castor Oil SheaMoisture - 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Leave-In Treatment TRESemmé - Botanique Nourish + Replenish With Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera Shampoo #TRESemmé - TRESemmé Conditioner Nourish & Replenish[products]#[FiveStars] I also used a lot of natural coconut oil, castor oil, shea butter and argan oil. I also made hair mask every two month, I took the TRESemmé Conditioner, I mixed it with coconut oil, castor oil, natural coconut milk, bananas, a bit of honey and a little bit of lemon juice. I put the mixture on my hair and I let it sit for 1 hour and 30 minutes, and I really noticed my hair were softer and shinier! Beside products, having a healthy and a “ stress free” lifestyle really does help, all 2020, I managed to eat good healthy food and do a lot of work out, so I believe these two things helped a lot! As of now, I started taking NATURE'S BOUNTY - Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies and ogx - Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum and SheaMoisture - Silicone Free Miracle Strobe Shine Spray so I really cannot wait for the results !! Good day to you all!💋✨

Have High-Porosity Hair? Try These Products!
I have high porosity hair and always look for good styling products. I've tried only two products so far. They have different texture, but they all have good effects, so I recommend them to you and here is my review. SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Souffle My hair will be styled well after blow drying. It smells like coconut and I really love that. The hair will not feel sticky after drying. The only cons is that its texture is a little hard. The texture is more like jelly, which cannot be squeezed by hand. If I apply it to hair and it will fall off. Half left in the hair, half fell to the ground.😂 PERCY & REED - Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish I bought it from Sephora. I like its milk texture and it's more like cream. It smells nice and I guess most of you will like its scent. I squeeze a pea sized amount in my hands and then apply it to my hair. It really helps to tame my frizz hair, but I have to say the hair styling effect isn't as good as the gel. When the air is wet, the hair will be a little frizzy😭So if your curly hair tends to be frizzy, you'd better choose gel. If your curly hair is smooth, you can use this cream. How to Determine Your Hair Porosity I mention that I have high porosity hair, and if you don't know how to determine your hair porosity, I'll share what I learned on hair website. How can you determine if you have high-porosity hair, low-porosity hair, or something in between? Take a dry, clean strand (meaning, with no styling products on it) of your hair out of your head, put it into a cup of water, and see how long it takes to sink to the bottom. If it sinks straight away, you have high-porosity hair; if it sinks after a few seconds, you have medium-porosity hair, and if takes even longer to sink, you have low-porosity hair.
How to choose the right curl defining gel
How to choose the right curl defining gel? If you have curly hair you already know how hard it can be to maintain. From fighting frizz to trying to lock in as much moisture as possible, sometimes curls have a mind of their own. One way I like to keep my curls playing nice is by adding a curl defining gel into my haircare routine. What is a curl defining gel? Curl gel is made to help maintain moisture in curly hairstyles while keeping curls intact for longer. If you struggle with frizz or your curls tend to lose their shape throughout the day - a curl gel is probably your best bet. How to use it? Most girls find that applying their favorite gel to damp hair works the best. After you shampoo and condition, towel dry your hair to get rid of the initial moisture. When the hair is damp, apply a dollop of gel and ‘scrunch’ your curls. What gel is best for what hair texture? Course: SHEA MOISTURE COCONUT & HIBISCUS CURLING GEL SOUFFLE This gel is made with Coconut & Hibiscus and other natural ingredients to keep curls feeling hydrated without weighing them down. This is a relatively cost-effective option that does what it says. Curly: IT'S A 10 MIRACLE DEFRIZZING GEL My favorite curl gel for frizzy hair is by It’s a 10. I love the MIRACLE DEFRIZZING GEL. I personally love using this one to help combat my incredibly frizzy tresses. Both of these products are great for different types of hair. If you have more coarse or kinky hair, I think it’s totally worth it to give the gel by Shea Moisture a shot! For me, my hair is curly and dry so I love using the It’s a 10 gel to help lock in some much-needed moisture in my hair.

Product Junkie? More like Family Friendly 🥰
There are a lot of products seen here (and some not featured here)that are used on a daily basis BUT I use them all and being in a house with 4 other people (my husband, my kids and myself), I’m not the only one who uses them. Here is a list of some products used and their star rating. The only ones that will be explained are the kid friendly options and not included is the ordinary which has a separate post already on my page: CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser For me, this product is a 5 out 5 but My eldest son says that it is slightly stripping to his skin even though it works for him. My husband also likes it! CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum My husband stopped using it complaining about its texture and not seeing any results. My eldest son lives for this saying it feels soothing on the skin and I have to agree!! CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Everyone in the family uses it except the youngest child who we use Eucerin cream for. Very good moisturizer and is a great family friendly product. bliss - Pore Patrol Clay-to-Foam Purifying Cleanser My eldest son uses this one more than me! Works miracles on pores and has a deeper cleanse than most pore centered cleaners. For me this is used maybe once or twice a week (same as the SA CLEANSER). Coppertone - Pure & Simple SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion I’ve spoken on this before - initial white cast is awful but after a few minutes, it airs out and dies down! My both my sons hate the stuff but it has done wonders for their hyperpigmentation issues. I wish mines were so easily dealt with. Don’t get me wrong - it helps BUT not too much of a life changing effect is going on over here. SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Rinse-Out Conditioner Absolutely, positively brilliant product. Everyone in my house uses this one. Helps hair and has that drastic life changing effect on hair (our house has 3C to 4C hair). SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner This is mostly only used on my daughters hair and Her hair reacts positively to it. Detangling is earlier, her hair is shinier and healthier. It’s a great product. Not as thick as it used to be but still great! Carol's Daughter - Goddess Strength Divine Strength Leave In Cream With Castor Oil Again, very family friendly product! Makes hair feel great without weighing it down. With hair type range being so broad in our household, it’s nice to have a product everyone in the house can use! Products not listed but deserve mention: Hot Six Oil : This product can be used for hair skin and nails. I use it to seal ends, after baths and even treat eczema!
Help: Are these good hair products?
So I love skincare and I take care of my skin. I don’t know why I’m just realizing this but I should be taking care of my hair too! I have 2B/2C hair so I’m thinking of buying these products. Can someone pls tell me if they are good or not? ￼￼￼SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo ￼￼￼SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner ￼￼￼SheaMoisture - 100% Pure Argan Oil ￼￼￼Briogeo - Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Avocado Leave–In Defining Cream I also heard about this brand’s shampoo and conditioner: ￼MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Shampoo ￼MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Conditioner

Moisturizer I fell in ❤️ with during quarantine
I ran out of my normal evening moisturizer during quarantine..... oh no what do I do??? TARGET HERE I COME!! 😂 Retails for $9.99 I try to stick with the natural, paraben free, sulfate free products and I had been using a few things from SheaMoisture already, so why not give it a try! Now I don’t think I will be going back to my fancy moisturizer anytime soon! The 3 main ingredients they use are: ￼fair trade she’s butter (duh 😉) ￼coconut oil and milk blend 🥥 ￼acacia Senegal (I had to look up what this was! It’s gum Arabic made from a tree) The smell is soft and does not linger around long. Which I like because I add my evening serum and lavender oil to this. Too many fragrances can gross me out! 😂 It’s light weight but still gives me the moisture I need. And I do have some sensitivity around my chin and it did not break that out! (YAY!) 😁 SheaMoisture - 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion #cheriecreator #dailymoisture #sheamoisture
Morning Vs Night Skincare Routine
There is a difference with products and routine when it comes to Morning and Night time skin care. ❤️Products and routine varies depending on skin type. This is a simple morning and night skincare routine difference for you to work with❤️ 🌞Morning Skincare Routine🌞 Morning skincare routines are lightweight and simple (3 to 4 steps) The reason your morning skincare routine should be light is because you are active during the day, wearing makeup etc. This can cause you to sweat, produce more oil, expose your skin to the elements like pollution etc. Lightweight products are water based, thinner consistency and absorb easily. Also your morning routine will maintain your skin keeping it clear, balanced and glowing. My Favorite Morning Skincare Products DR. BRONNER'S - Baby Unscented Pure-Castile Liquid Soap DICKINSON'S - Witch Hazel Liquid DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum SheaMoisture - 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion 🌚Night Skincare Routine🌚 Night skincare routines are heavier and have more steps ( 6 to 7) The reason why night time routines are heavier is because you are ending the day ( cleansing , removing makeover) etc and rejuvenating your skin. Night is the best time to utilize skin treatments and mask because you are getting ready to sleep. While sleeping your skin repairs itself and has the time to absorb all the benefits of your products. My Favorite Night Skincare Products Nolaskinsentials - Glycolic Foam Cleanser artnaturals - Rose Water Toner teamí - Hibiscus Infused Vitamin C Serum SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask SheaMoisture - 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Face Lotion SheaMoisture - 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Hopefully this is helpful when it comes to what you should do for a morning vs night skincare routine, any questions comment below #cheriecreator

My absolutely crazy hair journey after chemo
When I lost my hair to chemo I was absolutely devastated. I always had long and thick wavy hair. After I lost it I was looking for absolutely everything and anything to grow my hair. The best thing is patience!! I know we want instant results, but you gotta learn your hair. I ended up growing curly hair to my surprise and didn’t know a single thing about taking care of it!! First off, I strongly recommend looking at the back of your shampoo bottles (yes even the ones that claim to be natural) and look for something called DMDM. This is SO bad for your hair and causes you to lose hair in the hand loads. For so long I wasn’t aware that this was in my shampoos and blamed chemo and medications for all my hair loss even after I grew it back. The shampoo I listed below has been a miracle! I found it at Marshall’s for 6.99 including the hydrating conditioner. I also apply the leave in conditioner and I saw results in 2 months. I went from barely reaching my shoulders to the 3rd picture above. I also use the spray after my hair dries a little more and after I use a styler. Also try transitioning to 2-3 washes a week it’ll do wonders. I’d also recommend using a scalp brush in the shower to get your roots and make sure you’re removing product build up. After you get out try using a hair turban instead of your towel, it’ll reduce breakage!! ￼SheaMoisture - Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth & Tame Conditioner SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner ogx - Renewing Argan Oil Of Morocco Weightless Healing Dry Oil ARGAN MAGIC Defining Curl Cream
Hair growth secret!
Hi y’all! So I had chopped my hair in the beginning of the year, around March 2020, right before the pandemic got really bad. And it was around my shoulders when it was straight (see first pic). The second pic is from early December 2020, curly but when it’s straight it’s down to my mid back. So how did my grow that fast?? Well my secret, that’s really not that big of a secret, is SheaMoisture - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner 🎉 This thing made my hair grow fast like HOLY MOLY!!! And many others swear by this as well! How do I use it? This is a little too heavy to put on all of my hair, so I focus on the scalp and the roots. Since the roots are where the hair follicle is growing, by focusing there, you’re ensuring the hair is healthy. Just put a little bit on your scalp, and I put a little extra on my drier spots. (Mine are usually right on my temples, the top of my head and right behind my ears.) And massage it in! That’s it! I do this maybe 2-4 times a week, depending on how my scalp is. It does build up so if your hair tends to be oilier, use less often or dilute it with avocado or jojoba oil! Why does this work? 🔸Jamaican black castor oil (https://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/curls/jamaican-black-castor-oil-for-hair-growth) 👉🏽treats dandruff 👉🏽moisturizes hair 👉🏽promotes hair growth 👉🏽prevent hair breakage, dandruff, eczema and dry, itchy scalp 🔸Apple cider vinegar (https://www.ipsy.com/blog/apple-cider-vinegar-hair-rinse) 👉🏽balances hair pH 👉🏽antibacterial 👉🏽makes hair less greasy 🔸Peppermint oil (https://www.healthline.com/health/peppermint-oil-for-hair) 👉🏽may help with dryness, itching, or other scalp problems 👉🏽menthol in peppermint essential oil is a vasodilator, and vasodilators improve blood flow 🔸Shea butter (https://www.healthline.com/health/shea-butter-for-hair) 👉🏽reduces scalp irritation 👉🏽anti-inflammatory 👉🏽prevents breakage 👉🏽helps curly and coarse hair retain moisture but can be greasier for thinner hair This retails for about $10 at Target and other retailers. I got this back in March and I’ve used maybe half of the box so far, so it does last a while! Have you used this before? 😊👇🏽

CALLING FOR HELP AND ADVICE‼️‼️: Curly help.
HELLO EVERYONE 😊❤️✨, this is my first post and it cost me a lot to write it. As you see in the title; I would like to have my curly hair back and feel good about it. I come from a family with a lot of hair and curly hair (part of my father) and during my youth I was a full curl! I didn't use many products and it was always fully defined. During the last 6 years I and my hair have gone through a lot and I know that also affected me, the last two years I lost a little more than half of my hair due to stress, dyes and depression. I am currently beginning to change both my diet and my emotional health. But I still miss my curly hair!!! my type of hair was 3A. Here are the products I currently use: I try to wash my hair the less possible (1-2 times a week) SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Shampoo I like this shampoo, my hair looks and feels shiny SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque I use this mask 1-2 times at week, love the small and helps my hair to stay strong, shiny, not splits. SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Hair Masque ok ok, probably I’m a little obsessed with this brand 😂😂😂✨ oh! also I take the NATURE'S BOUNTY - Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies I started with them 2 years ago and it helps me a lot. if anyone has recommendations or options, I am in everything. thanks for your time in my post, I love this app and the community.
Very Un-Millenial of me
Really quick lesson in marketing to millennials, we do a ton of research on a product before we purchase it. So honestly, that was my big mistake with this product. Had I done my research, I would have learned this hair mask was NOT for me. Shea Moisture actually has a guide for what level of moisture your hair needs. I would be a 1, this is for a 4. I was just desperately looking for a deep moisture treatment...be careful what you wish for. once a week, a little on my roots, not bad. But too much, I am a grease ball. I do like the ingredients, and the smell, so I have been using it to shave with. If you go to their site, and you are a 4, grab this stuff, it's a nice little product

FACE MASK : Types & How Often You Use Them
Now it is important to use a face mask through out your skincare routine. Face mask help to target your skin concerns like dryness, acne, dark spots, redness etc. There are many different types of face mask ( clay, sheet, overnight, gelly) so we are going to get into each and how often to use them. CLAY MASK My personal favorite , clay mask ( bentonite , green clay, charcoal, rhassoul ) are more detoxifying and oil absorbing. These are applied with fingers or brush and left on for 15 to 20 mins.These are great for oily acne prone skin. These mask can be used 2 times a week. You dong want to over use these mask because they pull from the skin. A few of my favorite clay mask teamí - Green Tea Blend Detox Mask SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask SheaMoisture - BeautyHack Face + Body + Hair Aztec Bentonite Clay SHEET MASK Now I love sheet mask because they are quick to use. I like to throw it on before doing my makeup to give my skin a boost. There is a sheet mask for every skin type. but if you have sensitive or dry skin sheet mask will def work for you. You remove these from package they already have a face cut out and put onto face these are left on for 10 to 15 mins. After with most sheet mask you just remove and massage the serum from mask into skin. These can be used 3 times out the week and I saw people use it up to 4 times out the week. Sweet CHEF - Ginger + Vitamin C Fresh Pressed Sheet Mask OVERNIGHT MASK These are applied at night , left on and removed in the morning. These can be used 1 to 2 times out the week. Overnight mask may be more intense. These mask are for every skin type ( hydration, peel, brightening, detoxing) now I’ve never used a overnight mask but I recently got one DERMA•E - Overnight Peel If you have tried this product comment below your experience. GEL MASK These mask are great for hydration ! So if you suffer from dry skin gelly mask will give your skin the needed hydration. Also sensitive skin because they are very soothing. Can be used 1 to 2 times out the week. Be mindful not to overuse face mask using them 1 to 3 times out the week is fine. If you have any questions about face mask comment below ❤️ #cheriecreator

SheaMoisture-Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque
The Shea Moisture face wash has left me face feeling the softest it’s been without drying out my skin. Smells great and is all natural. There are different types worth this brand for different needs. Definitely a rebuy.
SheaMoisture-100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Foaming Facial Wash
SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Hydrating Body Wash
This has been my go to body wash for years ! It’s extremely moisturizing. SheaMoisture - Raw Shea Butter Body Wash 🌻13 fl oz I get mine from Target for about $8.99 🌻 Has Shea Butter and Coconut Oil 🌻Frankincense and Myrrh give this a product a sweet and earthy scent. It smells amazing ! 🌻 The consistency is runny BUT a little goes a long way. 🌻 Goes on like silk and leaves my skin smooth and moisturized 🌻Extremely Moisturizing 🌻No Parabens, No Mineral Oil , No Sulfates, No Animal Testing 🌻Great for Dry Skin 🌻Leaves a light scent on the skin The only thing with this body wash is that because it’s of a thinner, liquid consistency I use a lot. Which isn’t needed a little spreads and lathers enough. If you haven’t tried this body wash I highly recommend ❤️ #cheriecreator
SheaMoisture-Raw Shea Butter Body Wash
I thought this would of helped my dry skin. I used it multiple times with no makeup but I didn’t like it. It made my face really greasy looking. Not at all like the glow I was hoping for. Now I use it sometimes as part of my night routine.
SheaMoisture-Papaya & Vitamin C Brighter Days Ahead Serum
Shea Moisture Men Waves Pomade
I enjoy using this pomade. Have been using it for the past three days. I enjoy the ways it gives me waves overnight (no lie). HOWEVER, I dislike that the consistency of it is so thick. Wish it was less thick and more transferable. I believe this brand of pomade goes for $8-$9. Was sent this by Influenster & Shea Moisture Men.
SheaMoisture-Argan Oil & Shea Butter Waves Pomade
This product has worked really well For my hair I love it so much makes my hair feel and look healthy and soft after each use I highly recommended this product to anyone with color treated hair and damaged as well trust me you won’t regret getting this product :)
