Lightly Fragrant and Hydrating | Nubian Heritage Patchouli & Buriti Body Souffle and Bath Bomb

One great thing which I enjoy when it comes to blogging is the opportunity to discover new products that are far from being mainstream. Because let’s face it, there’s indeed a plethora of incredible  brands outside the walls of Sephora, Neiman Marcus and other retail giants. Brands that are affordable without compromising utmost quality. Brands that encourage community commerce. Brands that utilize natural ingredients. Brands exactly like Nubian Heritage.

Nubian Heritage Patchouli & Buriti Body Souffle and Bath Bomb review, benefit patchouli oil, benefit buriti oil

As a backgrounder, Nubian Heritage uses shea butter in all of its products which are sourced from Northern Ghana cooperatives. The women they work with receive a fairly decent wage, around 2-3 times higher than the average minimum wage in Ghana. Here in the US, the brand has forged partnership with local community groups such as Homecoming Farm and Sophia Garden, both of which conduct outreach programs (i.e feeding people throughout Long Island, educational lectures on practices for a sustainable planet). The brand has quite an extensive line in the bath and body category (you can see all products here), focusing on different natural ingredients. For my post today, we will tackle Patchouli (great for skin hydration) and Buriti (helps maintain skin’s elasticity, potent antioxidant).

Recently-launched, the Patchouli & Buriti Body Souffle ($11.99) and Bath Bombs ($14.99) smell amazing and feel luxurious on the skin. In addition to patchouli and buriti oil, the soufflé is made with rose hip seed oil, vitamin E and organic shea butter which help moisturize and renew dry skin. It is lightweight and does not feel greasy. It smells spicy-sweet, a delectable fusion of fragrance you won’t miss. The bath bombs are quite small so you may need a piece or two to fill your tub. Like the body cream (soufflé), they smell so good that you don’t want to leave your bathroom!

    I'm not a fan of patchouli, it reminds me of college. I can understand other people finding it enticing though!

    I tend to dislike patchouli, but these so sound pretty incredible. I love that they're so reasonably priced too.
