PRODUCT LOVE: SLATHERlotions.
I love supporting small businesses and am a sucker for quality, handmade goods. So naturally, I was really excited when Chelsea sent me some samples from her line, SLATHERlotions. Not only are the ingredients she uses all natural, mostly organic and always non-GMO, but she herself is a chemist & the sole mixologist! She hand makes every product in small batches to ensure the finest quality and potency. I tried the hair whip and pumpkin scrub. Head over and check out her other products here.

Ingredients: Shea Butter, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba seed oil, apricot kernel oil, lemon oil, honey & Vitamin E
How to use it: Apply it to your hair like you would an oil.
LOVE: Although it is called, “hair whip,” its consistency is more along the lines of a thicker oil. However, as any natural haired lady can tell just by looking at the ingredients, this product is chock full of moisture. If you love the consistency of coconut oil and the moisturizing power of shea butter oil, then you will definitely love this. It gives off a lemon scent upon opening the bottle but is unnoticeable when applied to your hair — which I liked. The whip gives a punch of moisture that is preservative, silicon, paraben, & sulfate free. My sample was a little too small to use on my whole head, but I ended up being able to do a fair amount of two strand twists with what I had.

Ingredients: Evaporated cane juice, safflower oil, coconut oil, pumpkin fruit powder, sea salt, vanilla planifolia fruit, cinnamon bark, ginger root, Vitamin E Nutmeg Nut and Allspice berry.
How to use it: Scrub any part of your baw-day that needs a little exfoliation. The spices help circulation, the sugar tightens pores and the pumpkin enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids brighten and smooth.
LOVE: The smell is amazing. It actually smells more like sweet potato pie to me than pumpkin - but it’s all yummy. It’s great if you’re looking for a very lightweight, all natural scrub.
ALSO TRY: Any SLATHERlotion body lotion.
PLUS: Everything can be customized, from the packaging down to the ingredients. Just let her know if you have any scents, allergens or labeling you’d like to avoid (or add!) and she can whip it up for you. The shop also sells trial sizes of the lotions.
