Ellovi – Body Butter Review 

This time of year my skin gets hit hard. From the colder temps and dryer air, my skin starts to lack moisture and needs a little extra TLC. There are slot of products I use that may help skin conditions but to be honest, the ingredients don’t make me feel good about using them daily. When I was approached by the people over at Ellovi I was intrigued by their 6 ingredient body body. 

Ellovi was created to disrupt a beauty industry ruled by products laden with artificial ingredients and cheap fillers. The founders are passionate about crafting pure and nutritional skincare products from plants. They want not only to make simply the best natural skincare products, but the best skincare products of any kind.

Our first & popular product, Body Butter, is an intensely hydrating body moisturizer made from macadamia nut, coconut, marula nut, hemp seed, and shea. There are no synthetic ingredients, preservatives, parabens, or other secret ingredients.

They currently offer 4 different scents: Original, Vanilla, Mint Chocolate & Blossom. I was able to try out the Chamomile Blossom. Was I taken back and surprised by this product. It was solid at first but with the warmth of my hands it slowly was absorbed into my skin. These body butters can be used from skin to hair. I tried it as a leave in on the ends of my hair and it definitely helped with my spilt ends and smelled amazing. 

I honestly recommend this product to anyone, especially as a stocking stuffer this time of year. 

The people over at Ellovi have been so generous that they are offering (1) Full size Chamomile Blossom Body Butter to a lucky reader. Simply enter below for your chance to win & don’t forget to stop ok over to Ellovi and checkout the products yourself. 
Happy Pampering!

Pure Shea Butter Review


When it comes to the products that I use in and on my body I do my research, so when it comes to finding products that moisturizer my skin and are good – and get elated! One such product that I love is Shea Butter, but better yet is finding a 100% Natural and Organic Pure Shea Butter, made with Hand Selected Finest Nuts of the Shea Tree in Ghana, Africa.

Those unfamiliar with uses of Shea Butter are natural relief from dry skin, psoriasis dryness, eczema and acne as well as being excellent for Stretch Marks from Pregnancy. Shea Butter can be used straight out of the tub or used to create DIY lotions, soaps, body butter and more. Deep Moisturizer for Skin – Contains VITAMIN A, VITAMIN E AND VITAMIN F – DOES NOT CLOG PORES – Highly Moisturizing and Long Lasting – Beneficial for Hair & Skin Health and Beauty.

I have added lavender essential oil to my shea butter to create my very own body moisturizer. Also great as a homemade hair mask – just add a few other ingredients and help your summer hair’s end. This is not only a great product for yourself, but awesome as a gift – or to create some homemade products as gifts. Holidays are coming up soon, so stock up on some of this before its gone.

Stop on over to Amazon and get your very own Cleopatra’s Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter here.
