I never really used any body moisturiser until recently. Unfortunately, all the glowingly tanned looks throughout the summers slowly, but visibly started to take their tolls. My skin gets dry and I even started to develop dark sun spots. Oh well. I love the sun, always did. I need a few weeks of constant sun every year. Not just my body, my soul craves it too.
Using a natural moisturiser, which works well, has became essential, especially in the summer months. I tested Sheaqueous Cream with Organic Shea Butter
in the last week, which is a natural aqueous body butter for very dry skin containing no added fragrance. It’s enriched with almond and cocoa butter as well as vitamin E. It’s made of pure, unrefined organic shea butter as a base. It’s PH balanced and toxicologically assessed, which means it’s even safe to use for babies, children and pregnant women.
I primarily used Sheaqueous after my morning shower, and it really felt nice, and neutral on my skin, nourishing and rich at the same time. (I don’t like fragranced body products, they all feel so synthetic, like having a dip in fabric softener.) The hydration lasted all day. I also tried it on my heels, where I always have extremely dry skin during summer as I love walking on barefoot. Again: very positive results, especially applying the body butter after a good scrub.
Secondly – as they claim that it’s suitable for eczema prone and very sensitive skin – we’ve also tried it on my toddler’s face. He developed eczema as a baby but with carefully chosen natural products it has been cleared now. However, on his face, on both sides, just below his cheeks, he often gets rashes because of various things like wiping his nose with his sleeves, smearing food or drinks over that area, etc. I normally treat it with a plain moisturiser for sensitive skin. So, we tested Sheaqueous on this excessively sensitive area of his skin, and it worked very effectively.
My favourite things about Sheaqueous Cream:
- Very effective after sun care
- Especially good for dry and sensitive skin
- Helps with cracked heels
- The whole family can use it
- Cruelty free and ethically produced
- No petrochemicals, paraffin or parabens
Just the way I like it. I’m always happy to promote organic and natural products as I believe they are better for us and also for the planet.
The only thing I disliked is the packaging, because to me it resembles some kind of a household cleaning product, but, as they say, what matters is what’s inside.
I have received this product for my honest and unbiased review. I can highly recommend it to anyone as it really worked for me.
This looks fab! My daughters skin is really sensitive especially in the winter she had awful rashes whenever she had a cold so really interesting in helped your son, I’ll check it out xx
If it’s gentle with super sensitive skin (me, me!), than i might want to try it out too.
Also, cruelty free – double thumbs up!
This sounds like a nice product. My daughter suffered from baby eczema when she was little too and still has sensitive skin so we need to be careful. I’ll be sure to look out for this.
Same here. I can really recommend it.
This sounds like such a nice product! We all suffer with dry skin in this house so I will definitely give it a go!
Ooh this sounds lovely! My son has terribly bad skin, his eczema is out of control again at the moment, so this would be great to try!
It’s a real shame about the overly practical / basic packaging as I do think these things really add to the experience and I want to enjoy using products like this not just feel like I’m doing a chore.
I have awful dry legs so would love to try it on those. I love trying new moisturisers.
This cream looks fab I love that it is paraben free, thats always really important to me when buying a cream. xx
Natural & cruelty-free is the way to go. This sounds fab 🙂
