Aiko Naturals Luxury Shea body product review

Here is my review on Aiko natural luxury shea

Since I ran out off my fabulous Palmers Cocoa Butter, I thought let me try this product out.

I got it in my monthly beauty box subscription my ebony box which has products for women of colour, body products, hair products, savoury condements, hair accessories and jewellery accessories.

I have been using Aiko naturals Luxury Shea for around 3 weeks now. It is a very nice product I am using. Absorbs in my skin quickly, has a nice light fragrant smell, not to strong. Great smooth texture, and easily manageable. I use it mainly on my lower legs and feet as these are the driest areas on my body, and it does its job well, moisturising the areas. No issues at all with it. Will purchase more once I have finished what I have. Oh and it is 100% natural and 100% organic. Which is a added bonus as I am trying to use products with the least or no chemicals.

Ingredients include unrefined Shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, rosemary oil, lemon oil, acia berry oil, and a few more natural ingredients.

“Aiko naturals – is handcrafted with pure & dynamic ingredients sourced ethically, organic and trusted producers”

Birchbox what’s was in June box, this is my first box.

Birchbox June 2017 review

This is my first birchbox.
I am pleasantly surprised with the contents, and the purse the contents came in.

Basically I am trying out different beauty box subscriptions, I had my run with glossybox. And now trying out other boxes.

The theme for June birchbox is Day tripping, has 5 items
The contents are as follows –
-Full size MeechNMia brow pencil
I think it’s a browny black colour I received. It is used on eye brows to even out uneveness. Cruelty free formula. Not really sure if I will use it to be honest, but can maybe use it as a eyeliner.

-Amiko perk up dry shampoo.
Well I don’t really use dry shampoo, for my Afro hair, so I guess this will be gifted to a friend. This is claimed to be like a shot of espresso for your hair. Hydrates, strengthens, rejuvenates healthy hair, no washing required.

-Full size Cowshed cow pat hand cream.
I don’t really use hand cream often, but it will be useful in the colder months. Has a cheeky name, nourishing hand lotion, which includes the ingredients of grapefruit, and coriander. To leave skin moisturised, toned and supple

-Scrub love coffee body scrub
Made from 100% natural ingredients, which exfoliates the skin, to remove dead skin cells and hydrates the skin. Coffee is a ingredient.

-Cynthia Rawley beauty brightening illuminator.
Claims to be a suit all highlighter is great for adding a healthy dose of radiance to all skin tones. I don’t use highlighters, so will give this a good. Hope to see good results from using it.

And I nearly forgot to say, all products came in a very nice and sassy cosmetics case, yellow and pink stripes. How handy is that, plus practical too.

Thanks

“My fave beauty and hair products | missybeelondon” on YouTube

Here is my blog post to associate with my YouTube video, my fave beauty and hair products.

Freedom pro conceal and correct palette www.tambeauty.com since I got this, it has been my go to concealer under my eyes and around dark areas of my mouth, I only use one shade even though there are 6 shades on the palette, but have not experimented with all the shades yet. Guess I need to do that.

Leo lip gloss http://www.tambeauty.com my favourite go to lip gloss to date, as I have forgotten what I used to wear before, plus I have many lip glosses and lipsticks, lol
Silicone facial cleansing pad £1.50 from Primark. Since I got this couple months ago and started to use it. I feel my face I cleaner, the texturised surface massages the skin on my face, improves circulation at the same time, and really gets into the skin to remove particles dirt build up and makeup. A Best Buy a a cost of only £1.50
Palmers cocoa butter micro fine exfoliating facial scrub, which I was given at a event in May, and had to try it as I do not have any exfoliating scrub. Was pleasantly surprised how good it is. I would say I use it every other day. And it is not to harsh that you can not use it regular.
Dudu osun black soap 99p in hair supplies stores, this has been I product I have been using since early on in the year, and noticed results mainly on my face especially, even though I use it on my body also. Made from natural ingredients as well.
Garnier rose water tonic can be purchased in many places, I was previously using the same brand but cleansing milk, but as the weather got hotter I thought to try out and use the tonic. I am very happy with this product, and it does not dry out my combination skin.
Body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution http://www.bodyshop.co.uk  I found out about this from another youtuber, and thought to try it as well. And glad I got it from my local body shop store. As we know tea tree has amazing properties on helping combat blemishes and spots. Which I noticed when I started using it over a month ago in May 2017.
Technic bronzing eye shadow purchased on ebay, I got this awhile back and has been my got to eyeshadow palette, even though I have many more, lol. The colours are really pigmented which I love, and pop out when applied to eyelids.
My ebony box http://www.myebonybox.com Which is my fave monthly beauty box subscription, I have done many unboxing videos on my youtube channel, to see what is inside the boxes. I especially love it has the contents are catered for women of colour and products and items I do use, unlike other beauty boxes.
Charlene’s hairipy hair products http://www.charleneshairipy.co.uk OMG what can I say about Charlene’s hairipy products, since using them many months ago, I noticed the difference on my natural afro hair. It is more stronger in general. Made from natural vegan ingredients.
Eco styler gel coconut purchased from a hair supply store, I decided to try this gel after seeing many videos and creations created using the gel. slightly sceptical if it would be ok in my hair, but was pleasantly happy with styles I created using the gel. and will off course use it in future hairstyles where needed.
afrocenchix soothe natural scalp oil http://www.afrocenchix.co.uk Which I would use after I wash my hair, to apply and nourish my scalp, which it does. Smells very nice too.
Shetai hair care butter http://www.shetai.co.uk I would use this while styling my hair, made with natural vegan ingredients too. Have no problems with it
fit4akiing charcoal toothpaste http://www.fit4akiing.com This is the natural toothpaste I use. Made from natural ingredients, noticed improvements on my teeth. I don’t experience any gum infections anymore.

“Glossybox unboxing | June 2017 | missybeelondon” on YouTube

Glossybox June 2017
Here is the contents of the box

You can also watch the youtube video above to see me unbox the glossybox.

www.glossybox.co.uk

This is unfortunately my last glossybox.

111skin space – defense bright eye lift gel

A very nice item to be included in this box, as I have bags under my eyes.

And 111skin states that this gel reduces the appearance of dark circles, minimising puffiness and softens the appearance of fine line. So good

Sleek makeup – power plump lips crayon

I must admit I do like the colour, and hope it looks nice when I try it on. And I know Sleek makeup as a brand is  very good. Another item to add my makeup bag.

Eness cosmetics – argan oil hand cream

I ain’t a big fan of hand creams right now, especially when the weather is so warm. Argan oil is such a body beneficial ingredient. It’s also great that it is normal size, sample size.

Batiste – heat and shine spray

To be frank it is a good product. But not suitable in my opinion for Afro hair, and would never try this I’m my hair.

Manna kadar cosmetics – sheer glo

I am unsure is this is suitable for my skin tone, but will give it a try

Beautypro –  Black diamond

Such a shame it’s sample sachet size 🙁  Would of been great if it was normal bottle size, not a sample. Black diamond has activated charcoal which is a pure ingredient. Very good to know.

 

Overall the items I get in glossybox varies, because some products I don’t think are suitable for women of colour. And at the end don’t use them.

So there are always items I don’t use, which is such a waste.

This will be my last glossybox, as there are many many many other monthly beauty box subscription to try.

I have had a good run with glossybox, as this is my fourth box.

Thanks
