Product Review - A Life Balanced

Hey Kinkies.  In addition to natural (meaning chemical free) hair products, I love natural body products.  Which brings me to the body butters that I received from  A Life Balanced.

What's In A Life Balanced Products?
Unrefined shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, jojoba, vitamin E and pure essential oils.

What's your first impression of  A Life Balanced's Products Kinky?  I love 'em!  I was sent the body butters in the Tiare Tahiti Blossom, Hibiscus, Creamy Coconut, and Awake scents.  I was also sent the BitterSweet cocoa butter.  The Tiare is made with pure monoi oil (as per the website) and does smell as such.  To me, it is a bit too flowery smelling.  The Awake is a citrusy scent if grapefruit, lemon, and lime.  The BitterSweet smells just like a Tootsie Roll while the Creamy Coconut smells like just that.    Uh, I never smelled a Hibiscus flower so I cannot say if the smell is similar with the body butter.  As for the scents, my choices (from LEAST to GREATEST) are Tahiti Tiare Blossom, BitterSweet, Creamy Coconut, Hibiscus, and Awake.  I think it's a tie between BitterSweet and Creamy Coconut though.
Sorry that the above picture is not the best (due to my flash) but at least you can see the BitterSweet and a bit of the Hibiscus (pink one in the upper left hand corner).  Below is a few pictures of me using the BitterSweet.  I used it in the morning and when I was laying on the couch watching TV that evening, I noticed that even after working all day, I still smelled like the body butter.  It was a pleasant surprise.
As you can see, it emulsifies into your skin almost instantly, sealing in moisture, leaving a refreshing scent, and ensuring that our skin is not dry.  My daughter loves the Awake body butter, we agreed to the scent ranking above.

Oh, I almost forgot.  It was time for me to cleanse my hair but I didn't want to as I was getting over the cold (may have really been the flu).  Anyways, my hair was not really taken care of that week and it was a bit dry.  I had sweated out any style that I was rocking and knew that I had to do SOMETHING as I was set to attend a business meeting and a natural hair event.  I didn't want to use products that were pending review, as my hair wasn't fully cleansed.  Well, after knowing the ingredients of the body butters, I decided that I would use the Tahiti Tiare Blossom and Kinkies, my twist-out was DOPE.  Wanna see a pic?  Ok... here you go...
I moistened my hair using my spray bottle, twisted it up and achieved a great twist-out (on my hair, not my daughter's hair).  The Hibiscus is supposed to be used for hair and body; however, I was saving that for when my hair was cleansed... almost saving the best for last sort of things.  :-)

Well Kinkies, definitely a great product that I would use until it's all gone.  I was sent some liquid black soap, facial butter cream, and her nail therapy.  I can't wait to use those too!!  PS - I want to try those Moringa products listed.
