I am currently in major product junkie mode right now, after running out of some of my most loved beauty and hair staples, I had to get my Sheabutter Cottage fix! I'm often talking about Sheabutter Cottage run by mother, business woman and big sister to #teamnaturalUK Akua Wood.

I picked up one of my favourite hard working cleansers Authentic African Black Soap (£2.10) (I reviewed it here) which is a great cleanser for skin and hair. I also got it in liquid form (£4.00) which is great as the soap can get sticky after a while. I also got the new Rose Lip Balm (£3.52) and a 30ml bottle of Haitian Black Castor Oil. Lastly I re stocked on my JBCO (from £6.80) one of my favourite all round oils (I reviewed it here)
