Winter takes a HUGE toll on your skin and I am trying out some super great products that are doing the trick while also being great for other aspects of life too! I am the proud owner of 1lb blocks of organic shea butter, beeswax, cocoa butter and African black soap all from Mary Tylor Naturals! You 100% do NOT have to spend a fortune on all of these high-end spa products when you can make them on your own in the comfort of your home! The cocoa butter smells simply define and is great for skin as well as being amazingly edible for chocolate making. People; this is a great antioxidant and can also be used in your hair. So far we are using on our skin and yup; we did some chocolate making! I cannot say enough about shea butter. This one is loaded with vitamins and contains no chemicals, scents or preservatives. This speaks volumes to my extremely sensitive skin.
As I suffer from pretty bad Eczema, I am really curious about African Black Soap (also great for psoriasis and acne). This is great for your skin and your hair and I even really like using it on my legs after shaving. Such amazing vitamin and health benefits; how could you not want to grab some of this one now! Finally, we get to experiment with beeswax which is something I have always wanted to do. They have a natural and super light/clean aroma! I am trying my hand at making lip balm this week; they graciously gave me some lip balm containers and my daughter is super psyched to help me out! Many of these have great scar removal and after sun benefits as well!
I didn’t think I would love making my own skin care products at all but I TOTALLY DO! I am so thankful that I was asked to try these amazing products out! Please try them for yourself; pricing is really affordable!
