Simply Shea Facial Emollient
While I use this both in warm and cold months, it really 'shines' in the cold months if you live in a colder climate. It moisturizes all day, and keeps the cold and wind from wreaking havoc on your face! I also like how it seems to provide a barrier to the harshness of a breeze or wind in this cold-weather time also. Hubby even uses it! I also find it helpful for after shaving my legs when my fibromyalgia is acting up and making my legs sensitive to touch, seams in pants, and generally making me miserable. This provides the barrier I need to stay sane when this is going on! I have also warmed this and mixed it with Calendula Oil to make a more soothing barrier for this touchy skin issue, too, and use it when I go to bed especially to get a better nights sleep.
A little goes a long way and it feels great on freshly cleansed skin.
Been using this about a week and absolutely love how it makes my skin feel, soft and smooth. Use morning and evening. A little goes a long way. Will continue to purchase.
This Simply Shea with rose hip oil is just what "Doctor" Renée ordered ! I bought some of this shea with rose hip oil because the winter dry skin is already starting. I use this on my face, applying a small amt and paying attention to the driest part of my face. So far, my skin is beginning to soften and not feel so tight. I use it after washing with my Goat Milk and Honey soap.
I love the face emollient with rose hip oil!! I have incredibly dry skin year round and winter it’s even worse. Tons of flaking and dry, itchy, patches. I had been getting a strange dry patch under my eye and I don’t use makeup or anything so I think it was just from the weather change. I had an Acure brand moisturizer which generally worked well for me but it just wasn’t helping out with that. With my previous moisturizer I would have to apply 2-3x a day and even then I would still get flakiness at times. With the facial emollient I apply 1-2x a day. It is an adjustment because it has to melt in your hands first so it just feels different than a typical moisturizer. Once it’s completely melted and absorbed, it feels very nourishing and not greasy at all. It does look a little shiny so be aware if you put it on in the morning before you go out in case that is something that would bother you. A little goes a long way so just be mindful of that. I can get away with just putting it on at night with little to no flaking the next day. I also have been putting it on my hands in some of the severe cracks (alongside Bee Silk) and it has been helping heal those up. If you are on the fence definitely just try it out! The amount you get and how long it lasts is so worth the cost. Simple and healthy ingredients are always a bonus!! I would recommend this and I will definitely repurchase after my jar runs out.
