Couture Skin Care

I wanted to share with you a 100% organic, custom made, halal skincare brand that I have enjoyed using. While I was in Dallas, I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful Muslimah who is a skin care specialist. She has worked in the field for many years, and gives skin consultation and facials. Since I have extremely dry and sensitive skin, I have had a plethora of problems using a variety of products. Especially after I hit 30 I saw major changes in my skin and searched for ways to deal with the changes.

After running in to Sr. Aisha at an event in Dallas, I found out that she could help me take better care of my skin and made an appointment for consultation as soon as possible. She did a wonderful 2 hour facial on my skin after which she provided me with custom made products that are made from natural ingredients
for my skin.

What I loved about her products is the fact that she makes each product depending on your skin needs. At my second visit to Sr. Aisha, I had some extra sensitivity a red spot on my cheek that was dry and irritated. Sr. Aisha provided me with a soothing moisturizer that has chamomile and other soothing ingredients (I can not remember, but they all sounded wonderful :-). After applying the moisturizer on a regular basis, I was happy to notice that the red spot slowly disappeared.

Because sharing is caring, I wanted to share with all of you Sr. Aisha's products. Her website is currently under construction but you can email her at

3 reasons I love CocuNutrives Natural Skin Care

1.) 100% Halal

2.) 100% Organic

3.) Custom made for your skin needs by a professional who has worked in the field and understands the needs of different skin types.

If you are lucky enough to live in Dallas, make sure to visit Sr. Aisha for her amazing services. If you are not in Dallas you can get more information on her products here:

CocoNutrives Natural Skincare products focus is on the amazing affect Extra Virgin Organic Raw Coconut Oil has on the skin. Coconut oil’s ability to nourish and repair the skin has been known in the tropics for hundreds of years and only recently scientifically proven to poses tremendous health benefits when taken internally or applied on the skin. These benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial, soothing, etc.

My products combine only 100% natural and organic, amazing ingredients such as herbal extracts, unrefined butters and essential oils, just to name a few. They are unique because they are based on this miraculous oil of coconut as well as other healing known for centuries ingredients. All myproducts are absolutely free of synthetic fragrance, are made in small batches and entirely packaged by hand. I take great satisfaction and pride in each and every one of my formulas.

"A need is a mother of invention." In a nutshell, CocoNutrives was born to help my family's and my own skin. My son suffered with frequent eczema outbreaks since birth and finding a natural product for his delicate skin that worked was impossible. I suffered with dermatitis and refused to apply ointments that would thin the skin out. After years of research, mixing, experimenting and testing I finally came up with amazing formulas that are effective!

Feel free to write to me to let me know what are your skin concerns and how CocoNutrives Natural Skincare products improved your skin if you are using them. I’d love to hear from you.

"Coconut oil is of special interest because it possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil and is extensively used in traditional medicine among Asian and Pacific populations. Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness. The coconut palm is so highly valued by them as both a source of food and medicine that it is called "The Tree of Life." Only recently has modern medical science unlocked the secrets to coconut's amazing healing powers." Source: Coconut Research Center website.
