Product Review - Mora I Naturals Gardenia Cupuacu Body Frosting

Gardenia Cupuacu Body Frosting
Price-$10.00 (w/o shipping)
Size- 5.0 ounces
Scent: Floral (Gardenia)

This luxurious butter will melt into your hair and skin, leaving it soft and supple.

This stuff is rich in all the right ways. It is filled with fantastic butters (shea, cupuacu, mango, cocoa and tacuma) and oils ( almond, coconut and olive). I used it immediately after showering all over. I felt like as soft as a newborns all day!

The scent is floral but not strong or too sweet and blends well with the natural smells of the butters without covering them. After a short time, the scent fades to a light and pleasant smell.

I haven't used it on my hair yet but if my skins reaction is any indication. I may use it tonight after my wash. ;)

The product is available at the Mora I Naturals store on etsy, through their FaceBook page, you can also follow their blog here.

Can't find a man who likes natural hair....

If you claim that men are no longer attracted to you since you have gone natural, you may be looking in the wrong places. Try looking over at I was surprised to see such a beautifully put together site dedicated to loving natural women created by men.

Ladies, no more excuses, they even built a website.

Pura Body Naturals product testing.

I was invited to test Pura Body Naturals at Juiceez and Etc by Atlanta Naturally Fierce. The creator Santeyonne Powell was as charming and approachable as she was knowledgeable and creative. Her products were inspired by her own sensitive skin issues and natural hair journey. Her products can be used on skin and hair and have oil and butter bases.

I tried the Cupuacu Hair Butter, Murumuru Moisture Milk, Rosewater and Grapeseed Facial Moisturizer and two unnamed products: Hair Butter #2 and Hair Lotion #1. All the products were exceptional. Just applying them left my hands soft and moisturized.

Murumuru Moisture Milk

This milk made from the exotic murmuru butter softens hair instantly.

Hair Milk #2

Softened hair like the MMM but had a more moisturizing effect.

Cupuacu Hair Butter

Softened and moisturized in a heartier way as opposed to the lighter milks. I was inspired to twist my hair on the spot after applying the hair milk and butter.

Hair Butter #2

Smelled deliciously nutty and had a truly buttery texture. I loved it and asked to take home the sample. It softened moisturized and gave the hair a beautiful shine.

The event was excellent and I felt honored to have been invited. Santyonne plans a sale in November. She also makes mineral make-up.

Pura Body Naturals have a blog and FaceBook page.
