I pray everyone is doing well during this coronavirus pandemic. We will get through this by the grace of God. Please email me at email@example.com if you need prayer or any spiritual support.
Before the lockdown, I visited a friend at the store he manages in Southeast D.C. called Nubian Hueman, which is a great artsy and Afro-centric store that sells products by Black-owned companies. I’m so glad I decided to support the business and buy some products because I discovered my new favorite skincare line – Angie Watts. If you visit her website, she has a great background story of how her company came into existence. All of her products are natural, vegan, and animal cruelty free. I purchased the lemongrass and vanilla whipped body butter from Nubian Hueman, and I loved it so much, I used it all in two weeks. I wanted more products so I went to the Angie Watts website. I’m so glad I did because I found her Nam Eczema and Extra Dry Skin Therapy (Whipped Body Butter). My daughter suffers from a mild case of eczema on and around her neck, so I bought it for her. I also bought myself some whipped shea body butter.
The website is appealing to the eye and easy to navigate. As I said previously, the company’s history is awesome and makes you want to support their efforts. The prices are not too bad either. My products arrived quickly and in great packaging. Well, after only one day of using the Nam Eczema butter on my daughter’s neck, I already see an improvement. My daughter said she liked the smell too. She says it smells like “marshmallows,” although I beg to differ. 😊 It has a pleasant scent that isn’t overpowering. I absolutely love the whipped shea body butter, and I’ll be ordering more when I run out of it.
Also, when my package arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find more of the whipped shea butter than what I ordered. Ms. Angie posted a note saying she gifted me with the extra body butter since they didn’t have the 8 oz. container I ordered. I posted the note below. I greatly appreciated the personal note. I will be patronizing her again and again! I know with most of the country forced indoors to prevent the spread of coronavirus, I know many people will be shopping online for some retail therapy. Support this Black-owned business. You won’t be disappointed.
Side Note: I also loved the vibe of Nubian Hueman so once we get off of lockdown, visit them and patronize them. I was happy to see a beautiful, Black-owned business thriving in the midst of the gentrification of Southeast D.C. Stop by and say hi to Jay Sun. Don’t forget to buy lots of products. They have so many great items. Tell him Lauren sent you.
