It is officially summertime which means its also officially swimsuit time (yikes!). While I believe that full body skincare is essential year round, I find that during summer I really like to step up my skin care game. After all, during summer, its so hot and I’m wearing less clothes. So I figure why not keep my skin looking young and fresh, right?
Enter The Silky Shea brand. This brand is locally owned and based out of Charlotte, NC where I am from. I absolutely love to shop local and support small businesses whenever I can. When I was contacted by this brand to try some of their products, I was super excited! And as I mentioned above, I love to treat my skin right with the best products.
The products that Silky Shea offers are all natural and made using high quality ingredients. Some of the uses that Silky Shea lists on their website for their products include treatment of dry skin, improves muscle relaxation, treats dark spots and skin discoloration among other uses.
I decided to try out the Sugar Scrub in Cucumber Melon and the Shea Butter in Peppermint. These products feel luxurious on the skin and the fragrances are soooo yummy 😍. For $20 you can get the sugar scrub which comes in a 13.5 oz container and the shea butter is $15 for a 5.5 oz container. Although these products were gifted to me, after using them religiously on my skin I can say now that I would pay for these products in the future. The natural ingredients used in the products, and the way they make my skin feel are beyond worth it.
I have been using my Silky Shea products almost everyday for about 2 weeks straight now. And I can honestly say my skin feels so soft and looks so glowy. I don’t use the sugar scrub everyday as I know exfoliating every single day is not good for my skin. However I have been using the Shea Butter everyday as a moisturizer. I can tell a huge difference in how soft my arms are just from using this product. I also got a little sunburn this weekend from being outside and my shea butter soothed the burns and helped with the healing process.
While I haven’t used the sugar scrub everyday, I have noticed a big difference in the how my skin feels. Even just from using it about every 3 days the past 2 weeks. I used the sugar scrub to exfoliate before I self tanned last week and my tan went on so smooth thanks to how well the sugar exfoliated my skin. Some benefits of using a sugar scrub to exfoliate your body include retaining moisture, breaks down dead flaky skin, and helps skin care products work more effectively.
