No one ever gets it 100 percent right with their skin, but the key to at least keeping it together is having the right arsenal of products. One of my biggest issues as someone with dry-sometimes-oily-other-times skin is products that do more drying than moisturizing, as well as ones that leave me feeling incredibly greasy. But I don’t have that issue with SheaMoisture products.

Over the years I’ve tried a variety of their products that cater to the skin. Just recently, I tested the new Dragon’s Blood & Coffee Cherry, Kukui Nut & Grapeseed Oil and 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration lines. But instead of doing a standard review, I thought it would be best to share how they stack up among the brand’s many other popular skin products. Here are six of my favorites that you should try, old and new (which you can pick up on, in Target, Ulta and on their accompanying web sites).

Shea Moisture's Collections

100% Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Face Oil – $9.99

It’s the perfect product for those with dry skin. You can use the daily hydration cleanser before applying this product prior to going to bed. When you wake up, your skin will be soft and supple — as long as you didn’t apply too generously. If you have especially parched skin, this oil can be used in the morning and at night.

African Black Soap Clarifying Facial Wipes – $5.99

It’s tough these days to find facial wipes that cleanse the skin without burning the eyes. But with the help of African Black soap, tea tree and calendula oil, not only is the skin not left irritated, but it’s also left fully cleansed and soft. No need to follow these wipes with a face wash.

Dragon’s Blood & Coffee Cherry Instant Rebound Mask – $12.99

Another new product from one of the newest collections, the Dragon’s Blood & Coffee Cherry instant rebound mask is the perfect one to refresh skin that gets tore up from a very busy lifestyle. Made with black currant and borage oils, the rebound mask has a velvety feel and, per the usual, leaves the skin feeling silkened. You could put a moisturizer on after usage, but due do the creamy and cool feel of the mask, you likely won’t need it.


Kukui Nut & Grapeseed Oil Youth-Infusing Hydrating Toner – $9.99

Rich in Vitamin A, C and E, the kukui nut is an oil that helps your skin tackle premature signs of aging. And who doesn’t love grapeseed oil, avocado and all things olive? This alcohol-free toner has it all, working to remove impurities and dull skin.

Raw Shea Butter Facial Mask – $14.99

Perfect for the most dehydrated skin, the raw Shea butter mask helps combat everything from dermatitis to eczema and more. It’s creamy and the ideal weekly mask for a face that’s been covered in makeup, heavy products, oils and even sweat over a span of seven days.

Coconut & Hibiscus Spot-Correcting Moisturizer – $10.99

This moisturizer just might be the lightest product of the bunch, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t penetrate and leave skin feeling smooth. It’s also important to mention that it lightly helps (it doesn’t work miracles, though) correct dark spots.
