Review:  I have heard of great things regarding shea butter over the years.  I've never had an opportunity to try it before.  Mainly because it was difficult to find when I first heard about it, and I had other favorites I was using when it became more well known.  So I jumped at the chance to try this product.

To tell you the truth, I was surprised at what I got.  I didn't know what to expect though.  It came in a 1 pound container, which should last a year.  Yes!  When I opened it up, the first thing I noticed was the smell.  Not real bad, but it had to grow on me.  I immediately tried it out, and was impressed at how fast my skin really did absorb this thick shortening type product.  It wasn't greasy/oily which I also liked.  My feet had just had a rough workout.  When I wear socks my feet dry and crack.  It took 2 applications and my feet felt so much better.  I applied it to my hands and arms, feet and legs, and face.  I really thought this was a great product, other than the smell.

Shea butter is supposed to be good for cuticles.  Well, my cuticles are developing a lot of hang nails right now.  The shea butter is helping those.  I'm anxious to have my grandson try this on his eczema and see if it helps him.  I have not tried it on my lips, which have been slightly chapped lately.  Personally, I still have an issue with the smell.  I'm seriously considering adding some essential oils to it.

Someday I hope to be able to make my own lotions and soaps.  I plan to use this shae butter for those products.  I like how soft my skin feels after using this.  I generally apply at night, go to bed, and my skin feels softer in the morning.  I have yet to try this on my hair.  Still trying to figure out the best way to use it.  Did read you shouldn't use it straight on dry hair.  There should be moisture on the hair.  Also, should be combined with other natural oils for best application.

Pros:  Love how immediately the shae butter is absorbed into my skin, and how much softer my skin feels after application.

Cons:  Dislike the smell.

My Rating:  Thumbs Up for how well it performs, but Thumbs Down for smell.
