As soon as the season changes and the temperature gets cooler, my skin starts to get dry and feels tight. I have my favorite moisturizers that I switch to this time of the year, but it’s always fun to try something new. I’ve been using Bolden Butter Mint Shea Oil for a couple of weeks and have noticed a difference.
This Shea Oil is 100% natural and is made from ethically-sourced Shea nuts picked and processed by local women’s groups in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
There’s just three ingredients in this product; Vitamin E, shea oil and essential fragrance oil. That’s it! Unlike some products with a mint scent that overpowers, this one is very light and relaxing. I’ve used it all over my body especially those areas that’s prone to dryness like feet, knees and elbows.
Although this oil is light compared to some and absorbs quickly, I prefer using it at night. I use it on my arms and legs and massage it into my feet right before bed. In the morning my skin feels soft and moisturized. I haven’t use it as a moisturizer on my face (I would prefer to use an unscented oil), but have used it for a spot treatment on dry areas like my cheeks and chin and I am pleased that it helped and didn’t make me break out.
A couple of drops rubbed between my palms to warm it up does wonders for the ends of my hair and best of all it doesn’t make my hair greasy. This is a product I would definitely keep using during the cold and drying Minnesota weather!
Bolden Shea Oil is ideal for dry skin, hair and aging skin. It comes in three fragrances; Unscented, Butter Mint and Sweet Vanilla.
