Nubian Heritage Shea Butter Soap with Lavender and Wild Flowers

I've lost count of the number of Nubian Heritage soaps I've used. And I'm not even half way done. But anyhow this is the Lavender Shea one with little chunks of "wildflowers" in it.

The bar itself kinda looks lika a tone bar and even smells like it. The wildflowers are almost like sunflower seeds and of course do nothing in terms of exfoliation. I wasn't too thrilled with the scent. I found if boring and not at all lavender like. Really just like a tone bar just made with all natural ingredients.

Here's what it claims:

Nubian Heritage's Lavender and Wildflowers infusion calms or stimulates the body and mind according to your individual needs. The line is formulated with Shea Butter and Vitamin E to balance and condition skin, refresh tired muscles, prevent body cell deterioration and appeals to the senses.In the healing art of aromatherapy, Lavender is the most versatile aromatic plant, especially as an essential oil. Lavender has traditionally been used to treat all types of skin due to it's anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, rejuvenating, soothing and deoderizing effects.

The lather as with all Nubian Heritage soaps is excellent. But it wasn't as moisturizing and sometimes my skin felt uncomfortable, so lotion afterwards is a must.

The ingredients are excellent as always.


African Shea Butter, Lavender Oil, Lavender Buds, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin E, Soaps of Palm and Coconut, Iron Oxides.

Overall it's average and nothing I'd recommend. It was fun trying though
