I won’t call my skin dry, I’ll just say it craves moisture, which means I’m always on the hunt for body washes and soaps with ingredients that keep my melanin quenched. The same pretty much goes for my hair so when I got the opportunity to partner with SheaMoisture, beloved Black-girl brand, I gladly volunteered to try their latest body wash collection. I wasn’t disappointed!

SheaMoisture’s Apricot & Honey Nourishing Body Wash is a delightful concoction of ingredients that will leave your dry skin feeling nourished. Not only does is smell like candy, it boasts a winning formula that cradles your skin. Water, Fair Trade shea butter, apricot, honey, citric acid and plant based fragrance makes this body wash superior. The benefits of shea butter are endless. It acts as a natural moisturizer and reduces inflammation. Citric Acid promotes exfoliation and helps to unclog pores while that apricot and honey combo leaves you smelling eatable.

As a new mom with little time to myself, I try to make the most of my shower time with the things I love: a scented candle, my “shower” playlist and a body wash that tantalizes my taste buds. I love smelly good products that give my skin life.

After swapping shifts with daddy, I prepared for my shower with my new bottle of body wash in my hands. Candle lit. Playlist on Bryson tiller. Loofah on deck. With a pop of the top, the first wiff of SheaMoisture’s Apricot & Honey Nourishing Body Wash filled the bathroom. I squeezed a healthy amount (clearly I don’t believe in preserving product) into my bath sponge and buffed away. My skin felt smoother already. But how long would it last?

After using the wash for a week, I noticed my skin is softer and gets less ashy after showers, especially when I don’t feel like doing the full lotion down. The scent of the wash is long-lasting so you smell fresh for hours after your shower. For $12, this body wash is solid and comes in a variety of formulas like oatmeal and vitamin E for delicate skin; olive oil and green tea for every skin type; or cocoa and almond butter for extra dry skin. It’s worth the coin, sis.
