The one that keeps my dry skin at bay.

Meet Shea Butter Gift Packs from Eu’Genia Shea.  This is another brand I met at the Indie Beauty Expo in NYC this past August.  I was immediately attracted to their colorful booth, and I knew I had to check it out.  When ya mix a little family, love, and shea butter, great things can happen.  It all started with raw unrefined shea butter from Ghana, and with a mother’s history and a daughter’s knowledge, the creation of Eu’Genia Shea was born.

eugenia_shea_ibeEu’Genia Shea is run by a mother and daughter team with a great deal of expertise in the shea butter business.  They set out to provide folks with high quality products made sustainably with the highest of integrity.  I had the greatest pleasure of chatting with co-owner Naa-Sakle as iBE as well as over the phone.  She is one of the sweetest persons with a generous heart.  We got to chatting, and she told me about the history behind Eu’Genia Shea.  Long story short—her mother had a blooming shea butter business in Ghana, and Naa-Sakle decided to skip the “middle-man” process and provide accessible high quality shea butter for all to experience.  What’s even better is that Eu’Genia Shea donates back to the Ghana women to help fund their education.  How awesome is that!  🙂  This mother daughter duo is really doing all the right things.

eugenia_shea_gift_packs_tinI’ve got to be a little honest before I begin this review.  I’m not a fan of shea butter, specially raw unrefined shea butter, but there was something about Eu’Genia Shea that attracted me.  Oh was I happy I followed my instincts because I am a forever shea butter convert.  Naa-Sakle generously offered to send me a little package to check out and review, but I was blown away that I received this Shea Butter Gift Packs.  Like I said, I wasn’t a fan of shea butter (initially), so to have received 4 tin cans was very generous but overwhelming.  What if I really didn’t like?  Fortunately, that wasn’t the case, and I love love love Eu’Genia Shea’s high quality shea butter.  Maybe that’s what I was missing out on, the high quality factor.  🙂

Eu’genia Shea offers three different strengths of shea butter intensities:

  1. Everyday Shea Butter (Some Shea) – available in unscented, grapefruit, lavender
  2. Pregnancy Strength Shea Butter (More Shea) – available in unscented, grapefruit, lavender
  3. Dermatological Strength Shea Butter (Most Shea) – available in unscented

eugenia_shea_gift_packs_closeupA little history about my skin.  I have a peculiar part of my right shin that is constantly dry.  No matter what I do, what I apply, how I apply it, it stays dry.  There’s no discoloration, swelling, or abnormalities, it’s just extremely dry (and can get itchy once in a while).  I’ve used body moisturizers, lotions, and oils, and changed the way I applied it on, but it never is fully moisturized and looks dry again in a matter of hours.  It really doesn’t bother me (unless is gets super itchy), I guess it’s something I’ve gotten used to.

eugenia_shea_gift_packs_shea_butterSo soon after receiving my Eu’Genia Shea goodies, I decided to give shea butter a go.  I was skeptical, but I took my little spatula and warmed the Essence of Grapefruit Shea Butter onto my hands then applied it on my skin.  I love the way it just sinks into my skin, and there’s no greasy like residue.  With this stuff, a little goes a long way.  🙂  I went about my day, and as I was getting ready for bed I wanted to inspect my dry spot.  Lo and behold, it was not dry whatsoever!!!  🙂  (Yes, I know shocker, with my spoiler alert intro).  And with each daily application, I feel like this dry spot is healing itself.  Now with the weather cool down, I would normal expect to see an increase in dryness, but with using Eu’Genia Shea, it definitely keeping that at bay.  🙂

And that y’all is the story of how I became a shea butter convert.  If y’all have dry skin (of any extreme), I personally and truly recommend checking out Eu’Genia Shea’s product offerings.
