Reve Essentials Hair and Body Moisturizer

I became aware of this recently launched "natural" hair and body product line through a fellow YouTuber called Jcokes7 and her video is entitled:  "The Happy Hair Wrecker -- ReVe Essentials - 125."  As always, we naturals are always looking for that "magic" product that's going to make our daily grooming a more pleasant and consistent experience.

After watching Jcokes7's video and went directly to Reve Essentials' website.  The site is very straightforward about its product and makes no claims that this is a product that will "change" the way that you look at natural hair.

The major issue I had with the site was that the descriptions were not matched with an "image/picture" of each item.  I had to go back and forth between the video and site to make sure I was ordering the item shown in that video.  However, I must admit that I went to the site several times and didn't purchase.  This was simply due to ALL the "natural" products bought on-line and have been assigned to the product graveyard.  I really wanted to use up all those products before even entertaining purchasing a "new" product.

Finally, I ordered a sample 4-ounce size bottle in the scent of lemon.  I figured at the price of $2.50 I could use it up in a couple of tries if I didn't like it.  I ordered the item on a Saturday and received it on Wednesday.  So shipping was very acceptable.  I opened the bottle to smell the product and I was so pleasantly pleased!  The lemon scent was not the lemon smell of Pledge or any  other lemon-scented cleaner!  It smells like a creamy, smooth pudding!

I washed my tresses with a clay-based "natural" hair bar and then followed up with the moisturizer.  Omigosh!  My hair was in love!  It melted away the tangles and my 3b/3c/4a tresses seemed to sigh in relief!  My hair thrives for water and make no qualms about it, lets me know when it wants it's next soaking!  My hair was so smooth. Usually, after I condition my hair, I twist my hair into at least 12 twists.  Tonight, I twisted them into four!  Detangled and ready for styling in a matter of minutes!

I turned around and immediately ordered an 8-ounce bottle in the Baby Powder scent for $8.00 plus $3.50 in shipping and handling.  I didn't want to take the chance in running out!

The ingredients are as follows:

Hair and Body Moisturizer: This paraben-free cream is used to restore moisture to hair and skin.
  • Price: 2 oz bottle for $2.50, 8 oz bottle for $8

  • As a leave-in and moisturizing styler:Apply to wet or damp hair and style as usual.
  • As a body moisturizer:  Apply to skin as needed for moisture.

This is a winning product line!  Most of all, they are doing it right!  From personal experience, the worst problem with "natural" items is not just the fact that you may not like the product but the price point of said "natural" products are off the chain!

These ladies have done it right!  A right price, great product, the shipping was reasonable, shipping was quick and They offer SAMPLES!  My item arrive packaged in a black see-through draw string bag, a business card, and a 3 x 5 black card thanking you for your purchase!

REVE gets 5 curls for product, shipping, price and packaging!

I will be repurchasing this product again and again.  I'm also convince to try the other products in their line.

Happy Curls to You!

  1. These could have been my own narrative. I also was introduced to this produced my Jcokes and I went back and forth on the site a few times. Then i made the plunge and I am so glad that I did. My hair loves this stuff, it does great as a detangler and moisturizer. I even went and ordered two more this weekend. I pray they never change the formulation.

  2. Thanks Marcia for stopping by my blog. LOL! You sound like my kind of Lady! Even after writing the blog, I ordered an additional Hair and Moisturizer and even ventured to order the Butter in Lemon! Next week I'll be ordering some more Hair and Moisturizer to have on hand in case they change the price! ;) Happy Curls to You!
