Dash the Ash Body Balm, Hershea Love Polishing Fudge, Kinky Silk Tress Milk, Wrapper’s Delight Hydrating Kink Drink
I absolutely LOVE the vegan hair and body care line, Soultanicals! The creator/mixtress/founder Ayo OgunMcCants, was so nice enough to let me try out her body care line after I kept telling her she put her foot in her products. Lol..
I first found out about Soultanicals around the beginning of summer. Don’t really remember how I came across the brand but the labeling and ingredients reeled me in plus there was a sale so I had to get them. I purchased the Loc n Roll Twist & Fro Out, Fluffalicious Curl Nutricious, Knot Sauce, two of her kink drink sprays (Wrappers Delight Hydrating Kink Drink & Hair Sorrell Knappylicious Kink Drink). I LOVE all of them and thank goodness because I would have been tight buying all that and it ends up not working. Haha. Nicht gut (not good). :\
I have not reviewed those products yet but I will in due time. I have to re-up on a couple of them! :]
Ingredients: Saponfied organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, organic hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, organic shea butter, organic aloe vera, camelina oil, phlalate-free fragrance blend all dipped in LOVE!
Scent: Super juicy!
I really like this body poo! Gives great lather and doesnt dry out the skin. The ingredients had me wondering if I could use this as a shampoo, smh, hail naw. Lol. My hair didnt like it at all. Tried it on my toddlers hair since they have fine textures, that was also a miss. Didnt try it on my teen since we both have the same texture. Her hair is thicker though with tighter curls. So yeah, this product is meant for the body hairs not the one on top of your head lol..
The smell …… the smell is everything! Smells like Sunny Delight with a touch of extra fruitiness.
Would I purchase? I SO would! Skinny Dippin’ smells greats and easy on the skin. That’s a plus in my book. :]
Ingredients: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Cupuacu Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Olive Lipids, Tamanu Oil, Jojoba Oil, Baobab Extract, Vegetable Glycerine, Vitamin E, Essential Oil and/or Fragrance Blend, an extra dash of soulistic flava & LOVE!
Scent: Sweet and earthy
The name of this balm says it all! It “dash the ash” like nobodies business. It’s a little on the heavy side so this is perfect for cooler months. The texture is so smooth and perfectly whipped, to me, thats how a body butter should feel like. A great thing about this butter is it doesnt melt easily. My apartment is hella H O T in the summer time and it was left out on the table for weeks. Now it wasnt in solid form however you dont see the oils separating.
As far as the scent, it smells sweet but then there’s an earthiness swirled around it. Its not overbearing but if you have a sensitive nose you may want to stay clear from it.
Would I purchase? Yes!
Ingredients: Organic Cane Sugar, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Organic Cocoa Powder, Cocoa Absolute, Organic Black Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Potassium Sorbate, Phlalate-Free Fragrance and smudges of LOVE!
Scent: Chocolately, get a light whiff of floral (could just be my nose fn up, heh)
If you peeped the pictures above, Hershea Love Polishing Fudge looks so edible but I wouldn’t advise you to eat it though! Reminds me of coffee for some reason. As far as the performance, oh I love it! Makes the skin feel great and super moisturized. This is perfect to use after shaving, perfect for removing dead skin from under the arms, just perfect for making the skin feeling luxiourious. Even though it’s a scrub, I wouldnt suggest you to use it on your face. The cane sugar is coarse so you would easily injure the skin. That being said, be super gentle when using this scrub!
To me, it smells like those chocolate Teddy Graham crackers with a cup of Swiss Miss hot cocoa.. mmm. I do get a hint of floral of floral though. But it works and smells hella delish!
Would I purchase? Yes indeedy!
Kinky Silk Tress Milk $12 (2oz are $5)
Ingredients: Distilled Water Botanically Infused with Burdock & Marshmallow Root, Certified Organic Aloe Juice, Vegetable Glycerine, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Jojoba Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Panthenol, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Hydrogenated Palm (and) Palm Kernel Glycerides, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, Cocoa Butter, Crambe Seed Oil, Natural, Fragrant & Essential Oil Blends, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid & an extra dip of LOVE!
Scent: butter cream and floral..?
Okay so like… my hair didnt like this. :[
I wanted to like it soooo bad since on wet and dry hair, it detangles great but it seems like it evaporates and leaves my hair in a dry state. Not bone dry but not soft, at all. My teen hair likes it in combination with the kink drink and the toddlers hair feel the same sans kink drink. The texture is creamy, smooth but kind of thick. If you squeeze a dollop in your palm and flip your palm over, facing the ground, it wouldnt budge. As far as the smell, I do smell butter cream and I think I get a hint of floral. My nose may not be working right but I swear I smell floral heh. Not overbearing at all and even sensitive noses wouldnt mind!
Would I purchase? Speaking for my girls hair, yes. I may have to try the Curly version to this (Curly Silk Tress MIlk).
Wrapper's Delight Hydrating Kink Drink $12 (2oz for $5)
Ingredients: Rose Water, Organic Aloe Juice, Herbal Infusion of Horsetail, Coltsfoot & Nettle, Vegetable Glycerine, Flaxseed Gel, Jojoba Oil, Olive Squalane, Crambe Oil, Sorbitol, Vitamin E, Agave Nectar, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Citric Acid , Fragrant Oil Blend, & an extra spritz of soulistic flava & LOVE!
This spray is everything and them some. Really moisturizes my tresses and makes it soft not dry nor crunchy. The cons about this is it doesn't work well with certain products Like Camille Rose butters and I believe even Paul Mitchell The Conditioner leave in. I get white balls and residue that looks like baby throw-up.. eeekk!! And the fact that the spray nozzle-straw thingy, heh, isnt long enough to get all the goodness out of this 2 oz bottle. But other than that, it's okay that it only works with it's own products since I love me some Soultanicals and do plan on stocking up come Black Friday.
Wrapper's Delight Hydrating Kink Drink smells fruity but if I have to pick a favorite between this and it's twin sister Hair Sorrell-Knappylicious Kink Drink I would have to choose the latter, smell wise. Hair Sorrell smells sweeter than Wrapper's Delight. I'm speaking for me of course since I like smelling like candy. :]
Would I purchase? I have and it’s etched in my life forever or until Ayo decides to 86 the product (oh I hope not).
So overall as I mentioned earlier I love me some Soultanicals. This line caters to everyone especially for those that like to smell sweet like me. Teehee. The best thing about it is it’s all vegan so can never go wrong with that, right?
Also the prices are perfect for anyone who’s on a tight budget. My wallet has been holding me captive as of late but it due time, once I am ready to see the light of day, lol, I will splurge. Just a little :D

Oops, forgot that Ayo has sales every Friday. I believe when she has huge sales like 30% OFF she would skip a Friday.
