Mmmm I love Shea Moisture! I'm not the type to care about hand creams, and find most do absolutley nothing. But winter was coming and I had a coupon, and thought I could use a hand cream for the car. This stuff isn't marketed as a hand cream, but that's what I needed. So since I love coconut, I got this. I loovee it. Wow, my hands are so soft with this and I love the smell. I bet it would be great on body too, but for that I think it's a bit too pricey. I tend to buy a large cocoa butter pump bottle or use palmers tubs (which are better). But yea, killer stuff. If you are the type to splurge on body cream anyway, I'd say give it a go for that too!
This is the best moisturiser I have ever used and it became a staple the moment I took it home and tried it. Here's why:
- It makes your skin INCREDIBLY soft without making it at all sticky
-the price is more than reasonable compared with similar products
- as a lover of natural products Shea Moisture ingredient lists are a a dream come true; there's nothing questionable in this bottle
-the mushroom is supposed to have anti-ageing effects and I would argue it definitely does. I use this daily on my decolletage and it keeps my skin looking wonderful
-a little bit of product goes a long way!
The one negative, as other reviewers have mentioned, is that you can't get the last bit of product thanks to the packaging. Unless, like me, you cut the bottle open and scoop it out. Trust me, it's worth it!
This lotion made my skin feel soo soft and smooth!! It smells like tropical paradise and coconuts. Most lotions I used still made my skin look ashy no matter how much they claimed to be moisturizing. But this one proved me wrong. The only thing I dislike about it is, it comes with no pump and when it's finished you still have to try to get the rest of it out. I felt like I got cheated an ounce out of the product. Overall its great for people with dry skin.
Love this for the summer. It hydrates and softens my skin without feeling tacky. The scent is amazing. I can really detect the coconut and it lasts decently throughout the day. I want to try the raw Shea butter one next. If you like the coconut and hisbicus line scent then you will like adding this to your collection. Good for delicate and dry skin
One of the few lotions I have bought on repeat, yes I rarely buy the same lotions. Most lotions are too light, they smell weird, etc. This lotion I could use all year round if I wanted to, but during the muggy summers I need something lighter. That reminds me, I need to repurchase this lotion.
I love this lotion. Let me count the ways:
1) It smells so good. A bit sweet and tropical, probably from the coconut and maybe honeysuckle.
2) There's a beautiful thickness. It really is a butter lotion. I usually just have to lotion up once a day.
3) the ingredients are easy to pronounce. It feels like I can make it myself, but I'm too lazy for that haha.
4) I love that my purchase helps a small community. Well, that's what is stated on the package as well as some background.
Overall, great consistency, thickness and effective. I don't think my skin is brighter or any more toned, as that's what the bottle says its for. I hate that I can get ever little bit out of the bottle. However, I can honestly say I've never finished a lotion. I'm currently on my 3rd bottle of this stuff. Oh and it was maybe $10. A pricier than other lotions, but it's a quality products that's completely harmless.
Love this lotion,it smells so amazing!!!!!!!!!!! and works very well not greasy but leaves skin silky smooth. I love nautral products that do not contain harsh chemicals and this is one of my favs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this stuff. It smells so good. It has a coconut yet more nutty smell to it if that makes sense? Makes my skin very soft and I can see a difference in my skin tone. However, I think it made my back break out a couple times because it has a lot of different organic oils in it so I tend to stay away from my upper back. Very moisturizing though. The price I thought was kind of expensive [got @ Target] since I use a good amount each time. I didn't like the cap and how it dispenses because its hard to get the product out because it's so thick. I have bought this about 3x already. Love that it is organic and has none of that nasty bad for you stuff in it.
OMG this stuff is so heavenly! I stumbled on it in Target recently & am so sad I didn't know about it sooner. But am happy to have it now.
Organic, natural, healthy ingredients. Reasonable price ($10 each or $15 for set of lotion & body wash). SUPERB moisturizing qualities, no greasy afterfeel. Organic coconut oil is the main ingredient (love it!). And the bright pina colada scent is absolutely to die for!
I adore the scent of this lotion & I love the matching body wash even more (I save it for my face & hair, lol). Seriously you gotta try this Coconut & Hibiscus line if you enjoy tropical scents like me.
I have my favorite bodycare products but these are my new HG!
I ran out of my favorite body lotion (BBW Shea Cashmere) and decided I would pick a back up lotion up from Target while I was there until the four more tubs of BBW I had ordered came in my mail. I tend to gravitate toward natural lines as they tend to be free of parabens and that is important to me. I noticed my Target was carrying a new line of products by Shea Moisture and having been new to the brand I decided to read about it on the bottle. I was sold when I read it contained No Parabens, Phthalates, Paraffin, Formaldehyde, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Fragrance, Animal Testing, PABA, Synthetic Color, DEA, or Animal Ingredients. Of course the lack of Parabens and animal testing in particular drew me in. I compared it price wise with other natural lotions there at Target and even price ($9.95 for 13 oz) blew the other natural line competitors out of the water. So I finally decided I was sold and sniffed three bottles before I decided on this one. Let me say, the scent is awesome and I can't stop smelling it! Definitely a good Spring/Summer scent. It smells delicious like I could eat it. So far I was happy but I knew the final test would be application. For me a little has to go a long way and it has to be thick and rich and not leave a greasy feel or feel "heavy". I applied just a quarter size dollop to each section and found it to be very rich and smooth. Best of all, it hydrates without leaving my skin feeling greasy. Bottom line is I've decided this lotion is going to replace my BBW Shea Cashmere for the Spring/Summer months and I will use the Shea Cashmere for the Fall/Winter since it has a comfort smell better for that time of year anyway. This brand is not to be missed so next time you're in Target I would check it out and see if you don't fall for a scent. I guarantee you will like the lotion's formula and it definitely makes me interested in trying the other items the brand offers!
