The One All-Powerful Product Behind my Spring Glow

This post is sponsored by Bolden.

The winter can be so harsh on my skin, y’all. This past winter, though, your girl found herself a secret weapon of skin protection. I’ve been using a Bolden Shea Oil for about 3 months, from head to toe. And, the result? I just welcomed spring with healthy, glowing skin.

Bolden, a skincare brand built by black women, hit the market with a major goal—to provide natural beauty products that address the particular skincare needs of women of color.

Bolden Shea Oil contains 100% shea oil derived from ethically-sourced shea nuts. I was especially excited to try an oil because despite the well-known benefits of using shea, I avoided 100% shea butter products because they’re a chore to apply and usually too heavy for my fine hair.

The Bolden Shea Oil, then, delivers the moisturizing, skin repairing, and protective benefits of shea, but in a more user-friendly formula. Let me tell you, my skin loves the liquid gold in this Bolden product. The oil absorbs quickly into my skin and never feels greasy. And, the smell? Ooh la la! I’ve been using the Bolden Sweet Vanilla Shea Oil, which has 3 ingredients—shea oil, vitamin E, and an essential fragrance oil. The subtle fragrance is sweet and warm.

My favorite thing about the all-natural Bolden Shea Oil is that it is safe and effective to use all over the body. I’ve used it in my hair, as a lip balm, as a cuticle oil, and so much more.

This stuff is so good even Nevis (my pup) wants to get in on it. And, hmm…Nevis might benefit from it too.

The Bolden Shea Oil is available in 3 formulations—Unscented, Butter Mint, and my favorite Sweet Vanilla. At under $25, the oil is a steal too. Since the product spreads so effortlessly, it can be used sparingly.
