Shea Moisture Rose Lotion, Shower Creme and Mud Mask Review

Hello! Today I have a review of some products I purchased at Target a few weeks ago. Shea Moisture is a brand that's been around a little while, my only experience with them is some samples I've gotten in online orders from Ulta, which I haven't even really used! When I heard they came out with a Rose line I definitely started keeping my eyes open. Low and behold, I saw these products at Target! I believe there's a shampoo and conditioner as well but I haven't seen it anywhere yet.


I picked up the Sensitive Skin Crème Body Wash and Sensitive Skin Crème Body Lotion. They also have a mud mask that was in a tub, but it wasn't sealed and looked a little questionable, so I opted for the sealed trial size instead, more below on that. The body wash and lotion weren't sealed either, I don't know if they are supposed to be, but somehow that didn't bother me as much.

On initial smell in the store--these smelled amazing! Very strong rose scent, just brushing on the "grandma" rose toilet spray line but not going over it. I liked it a lot.

I've used both of these several times and I have to say, I'm a little on the fence still. I used the lotion the day I bought it, and it smelled the same in the store and the scent stayed on my skin for a long time. Since then, I feel like the scent has changed a little bit. Its hard to describe, but it doesn't smell the same and it's not that great. Musky is the only way I can describe it. I'm going to keep trying it but I'm not optimistic. I decided not to return it though.

The body wash is what it says it is...a creme body wash. My experience was that it felt like I was washing my body with lotion. There was absolutely no sudsing at all, unlike several of my other "creamy" body washes. Maybe I don't have any other product that is a "creme body wash"? I don't know, it was not a win for me. I will try it again a few times. It too doesn't smell as good as it did in the store, but hasn't changed as much as the lotion. 


On my nails for this review is Picture Polish New York, a really pretty raspberry crème polish with a strong scattered holo  effect. I just love it! It was the closest I had to matching the colors. I dont' have any stamping items (yet) so I couldn't match the pattern but that will be remedied shortly ;)


The winner in the bunch is this little packet I bought of the mud face mask. I opted for this because it was cheaper and sealed.


This is about how much you get in the packet. Dang, yall, it smells good! Very rose-y. If you don't like rose scented things, then don't even bother with this.


What I do with masks that come in packets like this is empty them into a little plastic container. You could use an old moisturizer container also. This is a little salad dressing or condiment container from Sistema that I got at Bed Bath and Beyond. It comes in a pack of 4 and they are quite useful around the house!


This is how much you get in the packet. I have used this twice now and easily have enough for 2 more applications. Excuse my messy sink! I have recently started using a brush to apply mud masks on the recommendation from Nicole (Young, Wild and Polished) and it works pretty well. I use a small flat paddle shape foundation brush that came in a Real Techniques set that's too small for anything else.




I have used this mask twice and loved it both times! One thing weird about it, it almost dries clear! Most mud masks just get lighter but this one just kind of disappears when it's dry. So strange! I will probably repurchase this mask when I run out, but only if I can find one sealed or I'll just order it online!
