Wait a sec.. do you mean Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Conditioning Milk ?

Cause if so.. yeah it does contain humectants: Capryly Glycol is a humectant that's in there.. Isopropyl Myristate has humectant properties... that's in there. It contains Sobitol Esters..another ingredient with humectant properties..it's in there. It contains sugar starch (whatever the hell that is) but sugar has humectant properties.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Hold Smoothie contains humectants as well.
Then I'm just all around remedial today. I swear I can't tell a humectant from an acorn. Thanks so much.

Since this is an ask Elle thread, I shall ask!
In the winter, I never have acne, summer hits and I have little stupid bumps around my chin n whatnot. Question is, do u use anything specifically to keep ur skin clear n the summer? I looked at ur dew pt video and I saw how pretty ur skin is
Of course I'll take advice from everyone
Thanks!

Also, isn't fote aloe vera gel a humectant? I used it during the winter mixed with some oils and I fell in love. I'd wet my hair in the shower, apply while wet and make a puff at the top. My hair would be soft for two days. Now, it doesn't do anything for my hair at all BTW I live in alabama and Idk about dew point but its hot as 3 fat chicks n a compact car down here!

This is NOT an ask Elle thread!!! No no no.

But to answer your question, I personally keep oil to a minimum on my face and try to use as little makeup as possible so I don't clog my pores.

AV is a humectant but it's not as "strong" as glycerin. I use it all year around, in all dews, and have never had issues. However, you might need something with more moisture if it's super hot.

@kdelish, I'm glad you like it. A lot of women on this site LOVE the original SM leave-in. I wonder if we ever got an answer as to whether they are really discontinuing it? I hope not.

I'm just sayin! Marah has hooked me up before about hair so I wanted to answer her question, but there are MANY ladies who are the bomb at hair on this site!
