Simply Shea Facial Emollient
My Mother-in-Love uses it and loves it!
I have been using the Simply Shea Facial Emollient for the past two years now and simply love it! In my late 40s, the skin on my face became drier, especially over my nose and cheekbones and it was difficult to find a product that moisturized enough so the skin didn't look flaky when a light layer of foundation was applied. This did the trick! I love that it has only two natural ingredients. So simple yet so effective.
I have dry skin, though I use to have oily skin when I was a teen and during my early twenties. I tried so many products and have purchased expensive natural creams to keep my skin moisturized. None of them worked very well. When I tried this facial emollient, I was amazed at how it kept my skin moisturized the whole day. In the winter time, I sometimes use my beesilk stick later in the day on certain spots on my face that dry out quicker; however, most of the time, this lasts the whole day. It feels a bit thick when I first put it on, but it's what I need. I use the avocado face soap to wash my face (love that too!).
I love Beesilk Jr. so thought I'd try the Simply Shea Facial Emollient when I made my last purchase. I have to say, I love it! I read the instructions about it going on differently than Ponds or another night cream so I wasn't surprised when that was the case. I love the way it makes my face feel at night and the following day. Clean, fresh, moisturized, but not greasy or oily. I've paired it with the Avocado Cleansing Bar and am thrilled with my new nightly routine!
A little of this goes a long way, but that's a good thing! For my now-and-then dry skin, it's instant relief. A little heavy when first applied but my skin is soft and moisturized in the morning. Great product!
