Body By Bea


My skin? Sketch.

She's not too sensitive, and she's not quite dry, but some products aren't enough, and some are just too much. The skin I'm in kicks it with all things natural- most of the time. That goes for the goodies made in the kitchen by the grandmas, aunties, and melanin Sis'. When I got word that Body By Bea this was in the works, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

Body By Bea, by Shana Bea of Love, Beatrice the brand- has been Janae Raquel Approved since 2014. Ever since launching her eco friendly handmade pieces, the Aiko pouch has easily been a staple in my wardrobe (she even sent one this time around, because she knows me so well with a beautiful pair of studs ).


If you know me you know I am here a sucker for a "look"-- packaging / aesthetic really draws me to a product whether it's going in my stash or in the trash. These bars of soap are so pretty, I didn't want to use them. I bussed the femininity bar wide open earlier this week, and let me just say-when she's done, she's being replaced!

All three bars are handcrafted with a coconut milk soap base. Coconut milk provides an excellent moisturizing effect in dry skin condition like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. The natural fatty acids in coconut milk help treat dry and irritated skin and removes harmful bacteria. Deeply moisturizing.


T to B Femininity, Sensitivity, and Joy Ride

In my shower : Femininity



Sometimes I hesitate using soaps oppose to oils on my face because of the possibility of stripping my skin.  I used this particular bar on my face and body to see what difference it made on different parts of my body. The bar I used on my face + body didn't strip my face but it did tighten it and I'll tell you why.

The secret weapon in this bar is Matcha Green Tea.

It promotes smooth, tight skin that retains moisture and natural, smooth color tones. Cleanses the body's entire system of toxins and hazardous chemicals, leaving the skin glowing and radiantly clean.

You know when you stayed the night out at your cousins house and whatever soap they had, you used? You came out the shower clean, but your skin was stiff and dry AF before you could slip into your big cousin's t-shirt? That didn't happen.

I am always hesitant when it comes to cleansing anything on my body because one wrong sud, and you're done.



This scrub is loaded and locked. Its packed with so many great ingredients like rice bran oil, which is lined with E + B vitamins that tightens your skin while maintaining hydration. And rose geranium oil that relieves stress, reduces depression, and improves circulation.


I used this right before exiting the shower and my skin thanked me in freckles.


This I have been using for about two weeks straight. And let me just tell you, one day I forgot to put it in my purse when I switched bags, and I wanted to make the bus driver turn around.

This butter isn't too firm where I give up on using it after the first try-- I've been there. It's nicely whipped, it has a soft scent, that doesn't kick your perfume out of the equation, and isn't too greasy. It's definitely an everyday staple, and apart of my night time routine.

The Verdict : Skin to skin, my body loves these goodies.

I could have easily just snapped a flatlay and called it a day. But instead, I've decided to give you the scoop on this care package because, LOVE.

Shop and tell her I sent you when you share your photos.
