*leaves my skin feeling soft
*My skin looks so soft
*Very thick.
*Does take a while to sink into my skin, I can still
feel it sitting on my skin.

*In a plastic push top bottle, since the
consistency of the lotion is quite thick,
it's a bit hard to get out of the bottle.

*Smells like Green Tea more then Olive Oil.
*No overpowering smell.
*Scent lasts for bit and fades.

Where to Buy:
Available at select Targets and Walgreens.
SheaMoisture products vary by store.

* I would love to see this in a jar, as mentioned
above it does take some work to get out of the bottle.

Would I recommend?
Despite having a bit of a hard time getting
out of the bottle, I would recommend this and
it's good for all skin types.
I love that its a family owned company,
and that it's cruelty-free..


Hope this review was helpful

Vitamin E Oil- The beauty benefits of Vitamin E oil are many such as a moisturizer
for dry skin, helps reduce the appearance of scars,acne, freckles, and fine lines.And is the key ingrediant in anti aging creams that help with wrinkles, strengthen nails, and for soft & shiny hair.Both capsule and liquid forms are available in most stores. And for this mixture it will help keep your eyelashes moisturized.
Aloe Vera:
Aloe Vera with its many beauty benefits, aloe vera promotes hair growth, and
can be used by all skin types..and its safe and natural.If this is applied just applied
by itself, its a bit too drying for the lashesand has the same effect as clear mascara
but combined with the other indgredients,it stops the mixture being too oily helps
hold the mixture together.

Vaseline - holds the rest of the product together,keeps hair hydrated and provides a protective
barrier against things like dirt and harsh weather..

♦Depending on the size of the bottle you have you could put more, I followed the above and it was
  about a quarter full so I just used more..

I have been using the Wet N Wild's Clinical mascara and my lashes have grown, but I would like to see if they would grow a little bit more, so a co-worker of mine recommended this method...and Im hoping this works..so I thought I would document it here on my blog with updates and pictures every month..

I'm having problems uploading the before picture so I am going to post it on my facebook page, and on here as soon as I can figure out what went wrong.. so here is the link for my facebook page..

Decorating the bottle is not necessary but I can never pass up an oppotunity for arts and crafts time..such fun.

I hope you found this helpful..
