Monday mornings are always, always, always so hard for me. Maybe it’s a matter of facing the fact that I’m an adult and it’s that time of the week to GRIND! However, I do find that starting my morning off on the right foot putting my nose to the grindstone helps tremendously. That part of starting off on the right foot most def includes my morning beauty routine, of which an invigorating shower is a part. Right now, I’m so in love with Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Cleansing Smoothie for getting my day off to a perfect start, and it’s out Monday Morning Must Have of the week.
Since ancient times, Coconut Oil has been revered for its skin protecting and moisturizing benefits by millions in tropical communities in South America, Asia, the Caribbean and Africa. Coconut Oil contains healthy fats keeping skin soft to the touch. Papaya has been revered by natives for its skin rejuvenating properties.
First of all, I have to say that this is a first of a kind product for me. Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Cleansing Smoothie is a thick, ultra-rich cream that you scoop out of the jar and spread on your body like a body lotion or cream. When water hits it, what you have is a delicious smelling, lovely lathering body cleanser. (I love using mine with a pair of exfoliating mitts so that I get a double duty experience –exfoliating and cleansing.)
This creamy body cleanser is so rich that is conditions the skin with its amazing ingredients like coconut oil and renews with papaya enzymes. My skin feels so smooth after using Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Cleansing Smoothie. Having brown skin, there is always that pesky condition — “ashiness” — that can show its face after a shower or bath, particularly if the cleanser is harsh or stripping. Such is not the case with this body cleansing smoothie. After rinsing and drying my skin, it looks and feels amazing without a sign of ash to be seen. I do of course use a body lotion after.
Additionally, the fragrance of Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Cleansing Smoothie is so yummy that you will probably want to layer it by using the Coconut & Papaya Body lotion as well.
