Thanks to the homey, Ms. Rasberry, I was able to try out some new products to soothe the body and bring awareness to a great cause.
Shea Yeleen International is a 501 (C)3 non-profit that “represents the issues and concerns of rural West Africa shea butter producers”. Due to the their various partnerships, Shea Yeleen is able to offer jobs at higher wages to women in this region of Africa. I was able to try some of the products, and I thought I would share my thoughts with you guys.
We all know that the winter is the worst time of year for hair and skin. It takes nothing for skin to dry out and lips to get chapped. Shea Yeleen has two products that I absolute adore! First, the Peppermint Lip Balm. This product really moisturized my lips, AND I can feel the tingly peppermint working. It has a great scent, and stays on for awhile. The next product I tried was Lavendar and Honeysuckle Body Butter. I love it! It goes on smooth and leaves my skin soft to the touch. This body butter smells define and doesn’t need to be re-applied multiple times throughout the day.
Both products are affordable and made from unrefined shea butter. In addition to these products, you can also purchase body balms and soaps. We all have to use these products, so purchasing them from Shea Yeleen will allow you to keep your skin nice and soft and you’ll be able to support a worthy cause. To read up on more on Shea Yeleen International, visit their website. When you try out the products (which I know you will), come back and share your thoughts. Or if you already use them, feel free to share your comments with other readers. Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
