This cream has rescued my weather weary hands!! Nubian Heritage’s Goat’s Milk & Chai Hand Cream review.

This past winter has been leeeegendary! *Bevy Smith’s voice*  The cold was no joking matter and I could not keep my hands moisturized fast enough.  And that harsh hand soap in the restroom at work, just added to the dryness and itchiness. So I was sent a few products from the new Nubian Heritage Goat’s Milk & Chai line and quickly busted out the hand cream.

I’ve heard of Nubian Heritage for years.  This natural hair and skincare line was often sold by African vendors on 125th Street but it started popping up much more recently at local drugstores and retailers like Target.  I think they are even sold in Trinidad at Body Beautiful On D’Avenue on Ariapita Avenue in Woodbrook. Nubian Heritage products are all natural and made without many of the ingredients that we try to avoid like sulphates, phthalates, mineral oil, parabens and they are not tested on animals.

The Goat’s Milk and Chai line contain, of course, goat’s milk, which contains lactic acid and vitamins A, B6, B12 and E which soften skin and the Chai (which is tea in Swahili, which I did not know!) contains antioxidants that help fight off premature aging and skin damage.  This is specially targeted for those who have ultra sensitive skin, eczema and psoriasis.

Looking for natural hair products in T & T???

So, I’m walking down the street, enjoying the blazing hot sun, and I stumbled across a little jewel on Ariapita Avenue.  Tucked across the street from Veni Mange is a new store called Body Beautiful on D’Avenue.

Finally, quality natural haircare products at a reasonable price.  They describe themselves as ‘Your One Stop Shop for Natural and Organic Bath, Body and Hair Products and Accessories….’. Right now they carry two lines, Nubian Heritage and Kinky Curly (I almost passed out when I saw this :-)!) They pretty much the full line of products from these two lines and they even carry shower massage brushes, 100% natural Shea Butter, aromatherapy diffusers, oils and candles.  I spoke to the manager/owner and one of her hopes is to continue bringing in other brands like Jane Carter’s Solution.  This, to me, is exciting news!!

Ladies and gents, check them out at:
