New Product Buys

I have been on a products spending spree during the time that I haven't been blogging. These are just the new products that I decided to try out. Well  2 of the three are new and one is a long lost love. lol So let's get to it.

(1) Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer (Coconut Cream): This moisturizer is the long lost love
that I mentioned. When I first decided that I wanted to give natural products a try, this was one of the first lines that I tried. I fell in love with their moisturizers. This moisturizer has a very smooth consistency that leaves my hair moisturized and soft. This moisturizer is on the expensive side but it so worth it to me. It lasts a long time since a little bit goes along way. The wonderful thing about this moisturizer is that it is moisture/protein balanced. Price: 18.97 for 8 oz

Ingredients: Distilled water, Hydrogenated Persea gratissima (Avocado) Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil (and) Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Persea gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Emulsifying wax, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Paraben & Formaldehyde Free Preservative & Fragrance (Coconut Cream - CC) (Island Mango - IM or Original Scent). 

(2) Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee... I have seen a lot of good reviews on this product but never really wanted to give it try until now. After seeing how great this product product detangles in a few videos I decided to give it a try. I haven't used it just yet. I want to see how it really works when I get further into my stretch. It has a very airy and whipped consistency. Almost like icing. The smell is so yummy and chocolatey. I love chocolate scented products. Price 18.00 8 oz, 32.00 16 oz

Product Description and Ingredients (via website): 
Product Description
  • Restores manageability, softness and elasticity to normal to very dry hair. Smooths cuticles, improves combing ability and reduces breakage. Please note that you may need to soften the CTDG by sitting the bottle in hot water or sticking it in the microwave for 20 seconds for easier dispensing. In jar as of 5/11/13.

  • Key Ingredients: Contains pure, prime pressed Cocoa Butter to smooth, soften and seal in moisture, Horsetail, Nettle and Barley to strengthen and condition and sulfur rich MSM to nourish follicles and support growth. Enhanced with carefully selected mild and eco-friendly detangling actives, it instantly restores manageability, pliability and elasticity to matted and tangled hair.

    • Does not contain mineral oil, lanolin, silicones, parabens or artificial fragrances.
    • Natural Dark Chocolate scent.
    • Directions: For tangled hair that is damp or dry, divide hair into 4-8 sections. Apply a moderate amount to the entire length of one section at a time and work through with fingers. Use a wide toothed comb to comb through from end to root as hair is instantly softened and detangled. For use as a conditioner, rub a small to medium amount between palms and work through wet, damp or dry hair. Leave in.
    • This product has an initial consistency of a medium viscosity cream but will thicken into a stiff solid cream over time. This is not indicative of a formula change and will not affect performance.

(3) Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner: I wasn't familiar with this product until I read about a few products from the Just Grow Already and Relaxed Thairapy blogs. My curiosity got the best of me after reading their positive reviews. I bought the previously mentioned conditioner and another product that you will read about shortly. When I first tried this conditioner, I wasn't sure how I liked it. The consistency of it was weird. It was like lotion, for lack of a better word. Secondly, when I applied it it felt like I wasn't putting anything on my hair at all. I did feel my hair soften and the tangles melt away. I fell for this conditioner after the second use. Again, it sunk right into my hair quicker than any other conditioner has. Which causes me to use way more than I need. But the softness and the ease of detangling are very good after using it. I've used it as a cowash but next I plan to use it as a deep conditioner. The scent is very light and fruity. Also doesn't linger for too long after rinsing. This conditioner is defintely a keeper for me.     
Price: 13.00 8 oz 

Ingredients (according to packaging): Hibiscus Infused Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Shea Butter, Cetyl Alcohol, Coconut Oil, Glycerin, Mallow Extract, Frangrance, Germall Plus

Description: This conditioner adds softness and moisture to the hair and also helps repair the hair to make it stronger.

Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallow Leave-In: I have only used this Leave-In once but I am liking it so far. It softens my hair and detangling was a bit easier. The consistency is very creamy and light. The lime essential oil scent is very prominent in the bottle that I received and I really like it. After applying the leave-in to my damp hair and detangling, I let my hair air dry for awhile. When it was completely dry my hair was soft, moisturized, and smelled so pretty. lol  Price: 15.00 for 8 oz 

Ingredients: Purified Water infused with Marshmallow Root, Lime butter, Castor Oil, Irish Moss Infused Coconut Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, BTMS-50, Germall Plus,Lime and Tea Tree Essential Oil

To use: Distribute throughout the hair. Finger comb out tangles or use a wide-toothed comb.

Have any of you tried these products? What are your thoughts?


  1. I haven't tired any of them but I've heard rave reviews for Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee. I hope it works for you!

    1. Thanks KLP! i can't wait to finally try it out.

  2. I haven't tried Qhemet's Detangling Ghee but it's been on my "to try" list for ages. Looking forward to your reviews!

    I ♥ ♥ ♥ HH Pink Grapefruit Punch and the Soft Coconut Marshmallows! Re: HH Pink Grapefruit's consistency, I agree, it is definitely a bit weird because it's unlike any conditioner I've tried in the past. The first time I tried it was so skeptical haha.

    1. Lol Pink Grapefruit Punch consistency is something but you can't deny how moisturizing that conditioner is. I bought two 16 oz bottles of the PGP conditioner and one 16 oz bottle of the Soft Marshmallow from her Pre-Black Friday sale. I think I'm set for awhile. lol
