Ditching Dove for Shea Moisture

I've been using Dove for as long as I can remember. It's the only body wash I use, but I recently decided to open up my body to what else is out there.

I snagged Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Wash w/ Songyi Mushroom and I'm in love! The body wash leaves my skin feeling silky smooth long after it's been wash; and, we all know about my obsession with smooth skin.

The wash has a tangy coconut scent to it that's delightful. I like coconut, but sometimes it can smell too sweet for my liking, so Shea Moisture manages to get the smell just right.

I'm also fascinated by the story behind Shea Moisture. The company is the result of the grand children of Sofi Tucker, who was a widowed mother of four by the age of 19. Sofi started gathering Shea Nuts for sale at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. She sold her Shea Butter, Black Soap, and other homemade hair and skin preparation to villagers, missionaries and tourists all over the countryside.

This is definitely one organic skincare line to keep your eyes on, folks!
