Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Foaming Milk & Body Wash

I love incorporating coconut oil and coconut milk into my beauty regimen, and products like these make it easy-peasy.

My Experience

It gently obliterates every trace of sweat, oil, and not-so-nice without robbing your skin of necessary moisture.

Better still, this multitasks! Beauty Hacks:

  • Facial Wash
  • Bubble Bath
  • Shampoo
  • Hand Soap

  • $10
  • High lather (personal preference)
  • Lasts for 2-3 months (daily use)
  • Softens skin
  • Cleanses without stripping
  • Leaves no residue on skin

The body wash is a silky, shimmery off-white that explodes into a lovely froth of milky bubbles. It’s loofah, washcloth, body puff, and bath glove-friendly! I filled my tub with a 3 inch thick layer of heavenly, milky bubbles and sank into total bliss. I feel calmer just remembering how relaxing it was while writing this!

Better still, a little bit of this goes a long way, making it even more economical.

The scent is a bit interesting and deserves a bit of extra detail: To start, it’s fruity rather than floral. (I’m not in love with fruity scents, but this was not unpleasant to me.)

I must note: I spent my young childhood in Hawaii. Polynesian culture was the first culture introduced to me and is my “norm.”  Suffice to say the scent did not bring back any memories of my beloved Hawaii (#TeamOhana). The coconut scent is a bit lost amid the berry-ish fruit-scent (“Hibiscus”),with a hint of “colada” in the mix.

The scent you are left with is light, fruity, fresh, and feminine. It lingers a bit on your skin for a bit in the most pleasant way.

  • No skin firming/tightening effect
  • No skin brightening/ scar fading

Your experience with this will vary, beloved readers but within a couple of bottle’s worth of uses I noticed no changes. This product may do those things, but I didn’t notice them over the seven plus week’s I used this product.

TL;DR

This left my skin clean, silky-smooth, and softly scented it the most luxurious way.
