A girl can never have enough shoes, lip balms, and/or moisturizers! I personally hoard the hell out of all three of these. A moisturizing gem I’ve recently discovered is Out of Africa‘s Grapefruit Shea Butter Body Oil ($24.99, currently on sale for $19.99). It’s completely all-natural, paraben-, sulfate-, petrolatum-, and phthalate-free, vegan, and eco-friendly. The grapefruit scent is heavenly – zesty and soothing, happy and delicious! If grapefruit ain’t yo’ thang, you can get this bad boy in Lavender, Vanilla (←DEF will have to try this next!), Lemon Verbena, or Unscented.
Ingredients: Unrefined shea butter, avocado oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and grapefruit oil
Skin benefits: This ultra hydrating moisturizer can help with dry skin, stretch marks, wrinkles, Eczema, Psoriasis, and sun burn. Unrefined organic shea butter contains mad healing properties, and the oils are rich in antioxidant vitamins A, E & F and essential fatty acids—we’re talkin’ amazing hydrating and anti-aging benefits!
Quick note: You may see shea granules floating around in the bottle, but it’s totes normal. Just shake it a little before using and allow the shea to melt into your skin when applying. Also, a little goes a loooong way – you only need to use a few drops of oil on damp skin. This makes freshly shaved legs feel crazy hella soft, btw!
Bonus: As if smooth-ass skin wasn’t sweet enough, get ready for your heart to feel a little fuller… Supporting this line of natural, unrefined shea butterry goodness helps to create jobs at women’s co-ops in Benin, West Africa, where these products are made. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will also be donated to help provide education as well as medical care to children in West Africa.
