Afro*Scent*ric, the African beauty products

I found this shop at Etsy.Com: Afro*Scent*Ric
I always want to try African beauty products, so I decided to order several of the items based on my current requirement.

Jacqulyne, the owner, always makes the products fresh. So it took 6 business days to complete my order before shipping. It arrived around 2 weeks.

Here's what I bought:
QUEEN MAKEDA (THE REAL) SHEA-MANGO BUTTER BODY BALM(fruity queen of sheba scent)
What it does:
It helps to heal sunburn, rashes, relieve itching from eczema/psoriasi/dermatitis, effectively treat dry skin and naturally help prevent stretch marks during pregnancy, fight under eye darkness, fight fine lines/wrinkles.


QUEEN CLEOPATRA COCOA BUTTER BAR(scent of coconut)
Directions:
- Apply to heels of feet after bathing/shower to SEAL in moisture.
- Use as a lotion bar throughout the day to moisturize hands after frequent hand washings.
- Great for nurses, doctors, dentists, etc. anyone in a field where they wash their hands quite a bit.
Cocoa butter is a moisturizer that protects skin from moisture. The cocoa butter will BLOCK the water & frequent hand washings from drying out your skin & will lock in moisture. Over time, the cocoa butter & beeswax develop a thin layer of protection, securing the skin with much needed moisture & maintaining healthy levels of water balance, ensuring healthy skin.

QUEEN NANDI SHEA BUTTER BAR(sandalwood vanilla scent)
What it does:
Apply to SUNBURNED SKIN, BEE STINGS, MOSQUITO BITES, KITCHEN BURNS, ECZEMA SORES/PATCHES, ROSACEA ACNE, PSORIASIS SORES/PATCHES, BRUISES, PAPER CUTS or SEVERELY CHAPPED LIPS!

QUEEN AMINA ALMOND BUTTER BAR(almond scent)
What it does:
- SOFTEN your skin/hair, SOOTHE IRRITATION FROM SUNBURN, RELIEVES ITCHING FROM ECZEMA/PSORIASIS/DERMATITIS, ALLEVIATES DRY SKIN, SOOTHES INFLAMMATION & MOISTURIZES a specific area.
- GREAT massaging bar

ANTI-ITCH SERUM for scalp(unscented)
Use on braids, dreadlocks, weaves, or any irritation caused by tension, dandruff or dry itchy scalp.

Instructions:
SHAKE WELL before EACH use. Since there are no SYNTHETIC additives to mix the oil & witch hazel together, you need to simply shake the bottle BEFORE each use. Apply to scalp as needed. Keep chilled for EXTRA RELIEF.

AFRICAN BEAUTY IN-SHOWER SKIN SOFTENING MOISTURIZER
What it does:
The mixture of 10 DIFFERENT oils help to SOFTEN & PROTECT your skin from free radicals, detergents and dry heat this summer. This MOISTURIZER, with continued use, will eliminate the need for lotions/creams when you get out of the shower/bath. This is great for winter & summer! The COMBINATION of the different oils will go DEEP within the epidermis, supplying it with MUCH NEEDED moisture, vitamins, minerals & DEFENDING anti-oxidants.

DIRECTIONS:
Just simply apply while in shower; AFTER CLEANSING...rub into the skin....pat dry..that's it, let the oils do the rest

I have tried this. The scent is very mild, reminds me of baby smell. Good to hydrate the skin.

NIGERIAN NECTAR 1oz NATURES MOISTURIZER
It's rich in antioxidants and oleic acid, essential components for the maintenance of healthy, glowing skin!

What it does:
- Makes a GREAT makeup remover, as it clears your face, it moisturizes it.
- Warm in microwave & massage into nails/cuticles for a great cuticle conditioner!
- Apply a couple of drops to your baby's bath water to moisturize/protect & fortify your baby's skin with much needed vitamins/minerals.

Use as a beard/mustache oil to keep natural sheen/moisturization to your mustache/beard without HEAVY BUILDUP! Prevent chaffing in your "private areas!"
Great for delicate elderly skin, too.
