Shea Butter DIY and Review – o4u The Organic beauty shop.

Hello Readers,

As a beauty DIYer i always wanted to do DIY with shea butter. So i got my hands on unrefined shea butter from brand O4U: The Organic beauty shop

Unrefined or Raw shea butter is the 100% pure, organic and natural.

We all know how beneficial shea butter is for the skin and hair.

Shea Butter is a natural butter extracted from nuts of Shea tree derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It is wonderful moisturizer for skin and an excellent conditioner for your hair, remove wrinkle and dark spot, skin burns and small skin patches and wound.

It is incredibly Moisturising and nourishing on the skin. It seeps down into your skin to moisture the skin that looks youthful and is super soft to touch.

This shea butter from O4U is 100% pure, organic and natural. It comes in a glass bottle with golden lid. It is ivory white in colour and has a faint smell (somewhat like wax). It can be used by both male and female.

I use it directly on my hands concentrating on dry areas. My skin feels so nourished and well moisturised.

You can also apply this on your hair ends. Do not apply this on your face directly. Make sure you keep it away from direct sunlight.

Priced at 300rs.

Net weight 50gms.

Best before 3 years from mfg date.

Availability – Amazon or HERE.

You can do a number of DIY from shea butter given you have a few essential oils and carrier oils with you.

I am sharing a DIY body butter from this shea butter. Its pretty easy and quick. Its a 3 ingredient recipe.

💠DIY

Ingredients➡️shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil. You can use any other oil like jojoba oil or olive oil instead of almond oil.

Method ➡️

1 cup shea butter (solid),

1/2 cup coconut oil (solid),

1/2 cup almond oil.

You can also add 15-20 drops of lavender essential oil for fragrance purposes.

  • Melt coconut oil and shea butter in a double boiler.
  • Then let it cool for 20-25 minutes.
  • Now add almond oil and lavender essential oil.
  • Let this mixture chill. Keep in refrigerator.
  • When it starts to solidify then whip it untill a butter like consistency is achieved.
  • Store it in a glass jar.

Thats all. I am going to share a few more recipes after i have tried them myself. Any questions or suggestions are most welcome.

    Aegte Complete Hair Defense Shampoo Review

    It is said that one should keep changing their shampoo. I don’t know how much of this is true but i change my shampoo. I can’t stick to one shampoo because my hair never loves that and moreover i get bored using the same shampoo. Depending upon my hair condition i always keep changing my shampoo. So this time i switched to AEGTE Hair Defense Conditioning Shampoo.

    About the product – It is a conditioning shampoo which refreshes hair without stripping natural oils from hair. It nourishes and strengthens the hair roots. It makes hair smooth, silky and healthy. The shampoo is silver in colour and has medium consistency. It has got a herbal smell.

    Packaging – The shampoo comes in a red bottle with pump dispenser.

    • No Sulphate
    • No Paraben
    • No harsh chemicals
    • Vegan Friendly

    Ingredients – Water, fenugreek seeds, onion extracts, methi extracts, amla oil, brahmi oil, vitamin E, sodium cocoyl isethionate, 10 in 1 complex coco glucoside, lauryl glucoside, CAPB, D panthenol, polyaorbate80, phenoxyethanol.

    Price – 999rs for 250ml. ( available on discount at Amazon for 699)

    Please Note – I have an oily scalp and my hair ends are dry. My review will be based on this. Also my hair is not chemically treated.

    My Experience – I used it thrice in a week and noticed a visible difference in my hair. The shampoo lathers easily and cleanses the hair so well. My hair feels smooth and healthy. It also calms the frizz. The shampoo doesn’t feels luxurious but is totally worth it. The immaculate feeling you get after shampoo is so nice. The feeling afterwards is totally different from that i get after using chemical laden shampoos. Also, i didn’t feel the need to use a conditioner. The product stays true to its claims.

    Ideal for – All hair types. (As per me)

    Do i recommend it? Yes. The shampoo being so expensive one will think 10 times before buying. But i say don’t think. Just get it. Your hair will thank you for this.

    Nature’s Destiny Pink Cookie Lip Balm Review.

    I am one of those people whose lips dry out easily no matter what i do. So i always need to keep a lip balm with me wherever i go.

    Currently i am using this handmade ‘pink cookie lip balm’ from Nature’s Destiny

    The lip balm is mixture of oil, butters and wax (unrefined shea butter, argan oil, avocado oil, vitamin E oil and rice bran wax).

    The lip balm is pink in colour but its non tinted. It glides easily and is non sticky and feels light on the lips. It instantly softens the lips. Since i have extremely dry lips i have to reapply it after every 2-3 hrs. It keeps lips Moisturized for an hr or so. This is so good for night time when you need something light for your lips. Regarding the smell, it doesn’t smells like a cookie but has a faint smell of some oil.
    The packaging is also quite simple. Transparent stick lets you know how much product is still left.

    Priced at 125rs for 5gms. Available on their website HERE

    Pros –
    No nasties.
    Pocket friendly.
    Instantly softens lips.
    Non sticky.

    Cons-
    Have to reapply after every few hrs(in case you have extremely dry lips)

    Natures Destiny ‘Touch And Melt’ Body Butter Review

    Body Butters are perfect for dry winter days when your skin needs that extra hydration. Body Butters prevents the loss of moisture from skin thereby providing long lasting nourishment to the skin.

    Today i am going to review a handmade body butter from a brand called NATURE’S DESTINY Its their ‘Touch and Melt’ body butter.

    This handmade body butter is enriched with oils and butters such as olive oil, shea butter, kokum butter, vitamin E oil, almond oil, coconut oil which deeply Moisturises and repairs dry, rough skin.

    It has a mild scent and thick consistency so it doesn’t budge from the container.

    When you put it on your skin its like a butter and then it slowly melts like a oil. And hence the name touch and melt.

    I use it directly after bath so that it locks in moisture. It takes a while to get completely absorbed. You have to massage it a little. At first it may feel oily/greasy but once it gets absorbed the skin feels smooth and nourished. This is perfect for winters days when your skin feels extra dry. I use it twice on my extremely dry areas such as elbows and knees.

    The product is-
    ✔️Chemical free
    ✔️Preservative free
    ✔️No synthetic dyes
    ✔️No animal testing.

    Shelf life 12 months. (The shelf be less since no preservatives are added)
    .
    75g for 200rs.
    .
    This could also make for a perfect gift. Isn’t the jar so cute 🙂.

    Body butters are good but they are best when they are handmade.

    Texture/ Colour/ Smell – The oil is red in colour and has a faint oil smell. The oil is non greasy and gets absorbed easily into the skin.

    I have been using this product for 2 weeks now and my current skin condition is dehydrated, acne prone and oily and so my views will be clearly based on that. I will clearly mention for what issues this oil has helped me. Read on to know my experience.

    My Experience – I use it twice in a day (mostly at night)…. Thank god its non greasy, light weight and fast absorbing 🙂

    The skin around my lips and chin is dry and due to this i get black patches there or you can say my skin turns black. I am applying this oil on that area daily at night and i have noticed a slight improvement. The black patch / mark has slightly reduced. And i love how my skin feels there when i wake up. So yes it does helps me with dehydrated skin and that black mark. And i can say its extremely moisturizing. So if you have dry skin go for it.

    I also have black spots on my hands. I apply the oil on my hands after bath and no i will not say that it has deleted the spots but…but yes the spots are visibly reducing. Also, my hands don’t feel sticky or greasy what so ever. So i love using it after bath.

    I also like to use it on my cuticles and love how immaculate my cuticles look.

    I also have acne marks and i am applying it there too but haven’t seen any improvements there till now. I think may be after using it for a longer period i will get some result. So i will keep you guys posted on that for sure.

    Honestly i cant comment on the stretch mark thing… all i can say is since it improves skin elasticity it will help to prevent the occurrence of new stretch marks 🙂

    I personally feel it does helps to heal scars/mark if they are new.

    In my case it helped me with dry skin and that black mark around my lip area is reducing slowly 🙂 I also didn’t notice any irritations.

    Overall i think its a good product. It is suitable for all skin types. It also contains moroccan argan oil and sea buckthorn oil.

    I am loving this product for a few more reasons….. No mineral oil, no animal testing, paraben free 🙂

    Debon Herbals Vitamin E Cream Review

    Hello Everyone,

    Today i am going to review Vitamin E cream from a brand Debon Herbals.

    Vitamin E has numerous skin benefits…

    • promotes healthy skin,
    • softens the skin,
    • protects skin from sun damage,
    • prevents skin aging and wrinkles…..

    Vitamin E’s main role in cream or lotions is as an anti oxidant.

    Here on the packaging of this cream you can see a picture of Avacado. Avacado’s are a good source of vitamin E.

    Natural vitamin E provides anti oxidants that encourages healthy growth of new skin cells….

    Avacado oil nourishes the skin and helps with dry skin conditions.

    About Debon Herbals Vitamin E Cream – Made from natural Vitamin E. Has softening qualities, minimises wrinkles, blemishes, crows feet, rejuvenates and preserves youth.

    Key Ingredients – Aloevera juice, vitamin E oil in cream base.

    Price – 132rs for 100gms.

    Size Available – 50gms /100gms/ 500gms

    Availability – Flipkart, Amazon, purplle…

    Directions of use – Apply little quantity of cream on the face or all over body and massage gently upon the applied area. Then wash off with plain or luke warm water.

    My experience –

    Packaging, Colour & ScentFirst of all the cream comes in tub packaging which makes it kinda messy to use. I wish it had tube/pump packaging. The cream is white in colour and has a thick consistency. The scent of the cream is like face powder. However after applying, the scent wears off.

    What i feel after using this cream is, its suitable for people with dry skin. Current situation of my skin is dehydrated and i have live acne. So First when i applied on my entire face, the part of face where i have acne felt a bit greasy. Thereafter i concentrated only on dry areas. It felt quite moisturizing on the dry areas. Though the cream has a thick consistency, after applying it doesn’t feels heavy on the skin. It instantly softens the skin and keeps it hydrated very well. A little amount of cream goes a long way.

    You can massage the cream on your face and wipe your face with wet towel to instantly get soft skin. You can also use it as a moisturizing cream however make sure you take little qty. Dont overload your face with it.

    Do i recommend it? I recommend it for people with dry skin. I wouldn’t suggest it for oily skin.

    Overall the product is good in terms of usage and price. Just one con of this product is that the brand hasn’t mentioned the entire ingredients list on the product.

    I hope you guys liked my review. If you have any questions regarding this product feel free to comment below. You can also get in touch with me on INSTAGRAM
