Being based in Nashville, Tennessee, I find immense value in featuring and reviewing local cosmetics companies to provide exposure to smaller businesses in the industry. While major retailers like Ulta and Sephora are great, there’s something special about supporting companies that have a personal connection to your region.
One such company that caught my attention is Lucky Heart Cosmetics, a Memphis-based brand with a rich history dating back to 1935. Initially catering to the needs of African Americans, Lucky Heart Cosmetics has since expanded its reach to include people of all ethnicities. Their commitment to manufacturing their products in the United States and maintaining a cruelty-free stance is commendable. Currently, the company is proudly veteran-owned and offers a range of hair care and skincare products.
One of the products I had the opportunity to review is the 4-Way Coconut Oil Conditioner. According to the product description on their website, this conditioner is designed to detangle hair, promoting growth and strength through the power of coconut oil and nourishing the scalp with vitamin E. It can be used as a regular conditioner or as a deep-cleaning mask for soft, manageable hair. The packaging recommends applying it to damp hair and leaving it in while styling as usual.
The product has a texture reminiscent of petroleum jelly and carries a strong coconut scent. A little goes a long way with this product – a pea-sized amount is sufficient. It’s crucial to avoid applying it near the roots, as it can make your hair appear greasy. Instead, focus on the ends of your hair and brush it through before styling.
During my use of the product, I initially faced some challenges finding the right amount to apply, which led to greasiness. However, once I found the right balance, the product revealed its potential to rejuvenate and nourish hair.
The Absolutely Lavender Hand & Body Lotion from Lucky Heart Cosmetics left a remarkable impression. As someone who has tried numerous lotions designed to aid sleep, I was astounded to discover this lotion’s effectiveness, and it’s incredibly affordable at just $5.
For someone who battles insomnia, getting a good night’s sleep can be a constant struggle. I had come to accept the fact that I’d spend my nights waiting for hours to fall asleep, waking up multiple times before my alarm blared. However, this lotion changed the game.
Over the course of six nights, I consistently used this lotion to assess its impact on my sleep. From the very first night, it had me falling asleep within as little as eight minutes. That’s a remarkably short time compared to my previous sleep experiences. Each night, I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I fell asleep and stayed asleep throughout the night.
In my nightly routine, I apply the lotion to moisturize my legs and feet before massaging a small amount onto my hands (as I tend to sleep with my hands near my face). For those who prefer, you can also apply a bit of lotion under your nose or on your chest. It’s versatile and can be tailored to suit your unique sleep routine.
In summary, locally-owned companies hold a special place in my heart, and Lucky Heart Cosmetics exemplifies the personalized feel and product quality that such businesses offer. The company’s commitment to providing personalized care, combined with its competitive prices, makes it worth exploring. For anyone interested, I recommend checking them out online to discover your new favorite products.
