it leaves the skin feeling so soft and it's not too heavy either.
The smell of this is what caught my eye. At first, I thought it resembles Ralph Lauren Romance perfume.
It does soften and moisturize and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I can use this on my back without worrying that it will break me out, and it doesn't. It comes in a nice size bottle and one pump or half of a pump is very concentrated. This stuff it not watery. It has the consistency of body butter.
I love this lotion, I hope they never stop making it or change the formulation. I wish the company made a perfume bottle of this scent. Delicious, and sophisticated, and soft. Not overpowering or musky. Once you take a whiff you want to take a couple more :)
I got this lotion on a whim because it was on sale at the grocery store. I'm glad I did because I love it!
This is a pleasingly rich lotion with a smooth, thick texture, but sinks in with some rubbing. This makes my skin feel nicely plumped up and protected and very soft when it is fully absorbed. The fragrance is surprisingly sophisticated for a baby lotion. I think the sweet, smoky, nutty scent makes more sense on adults. It's also fairly strong and lingers nicely so it can be used in place of perfume or layered with a complementary fragrance (I'm thinking something soft and ambery or honeysuckle-jasmine-tuberose). I think the fragrance might be too strong for warm weather, but it will be the perfect skin scent as the days grow cooler.
I like the plain packaging and think the price is pretty damned good given the high quality ingredients. I would repurchase and recommend.
Love, love, love it!!! I'm in my 20's and I don't have kids. But I sought this out because I'm running an organic, relatively chemical free household. Even my partner (whom I've tried desperately to convince natural is better) now uses it every night on his hands. And he never liked any of my raw, pure body butters before. And I'm talking like RAW cocoa-mango-shea hippie-type concoctions that are so pure you could eat 'em. But he really prefers this stuff.
In fact, I also bought the Shea Moisture Baby Olive Oil one (it has a blue label instead of the gold, and smells more floral than this which is a modest vanilla) but he actually likes this "raw" one more. I'm using the other one now, and both are great . I'll use up the other but I'll be stocking up on the Organic Raw Shea Chamomile for sure. I feel moisturized and soft even into the next day when applying before bed. I recommend warming it up in your hands and then applying. The pump and bottle are both incredibly convenient but towards the end you have to manually scoop it out.
Supposedly Frankincense and Myrrh were gifts from the three wise men. Go figure, it works!!! I've seen this at the Vitamin Shoppe and the baby section at Target. Will buy more and more!!!
Not moisturizing at all.And BEWARE don't use shea moisture baby wash or their shampoo unless you want severe scummy cradle cap on your head.
I have sensitive skin on my hands and when using soaps etc my it gets red rashes from the sulfates in hand soaps :/
Lately I was using hand lotions that still left my hands irritated until I tried this baby lotion!!
Oh wow!! It left hands almost soft and moisturized again!! Amazing! Not even pricy lotions could do this..
Definitely I'm using this on my body right after I shower and it keeps my skin super soft!! Love this! I don't have a baby, but this lotion worked on my skin! It has a light vanila scent that faded after a couple of hours (on my skin) and the scent wasn't too overwhelming (in my case).
Being in humid east Texas this really helped to hydrate my skin! <3!
This is currently on BOGO free at Walgreens with $9.99USD plus a $2 off coupon I stocked up enough to last me a year!!
Another super effective, all natural, delicious smelling, and economical lotion from Shea Moisture. This is another one of my favorites. Not quite as rich as the raw shea butter lotion, but still on the thick & lush side. I typically use this all over my body and on the face I alternate using this with the raw shea butter lotion. I smoothed it on my husband's face after he felt irritated from shaving and he loved it. And raved about the smell. This is a warm, earthy, kinda vanilla scented lotion- I have never come across an all natural drugstore lotion that smells as good as this one. Can't say anything bad about it- it's all natural, uses free trade ingredients, no animal testing... plus it smells wonderful and can be used head-to-toe. No reason for everyone to not have a bottle of this on hand.
I don't have a baby but I love this stuff. Smells yummy, powdery, warm. A little strong for a product intended for infants, but it's good for me! Very moisturizing, sinks in quickly, natural ingredients and available at target/walgreens :)
Oh my! This stuff smells AMAZING! It's kinda warm & cozy...I think too heavy for summer heat but perfect for cooler weather. It's just gorgeous : ) The lotion itself is wonderful. Very luxuriously smooth & creamy feeling. Sinks in very well without being greasy. I do love the pump. Target.com has $2 off coupon for this so I printed up two and bought the lotion and the body wash/shampoo. I would still purchse at full price : )
I'm on my second mammoth bottle, and this is my favorite natural ingredient moisturizer. It is fragranced, but I happen to love the scent. It's a warm, vanillic, yummy sort of smell, and seems to mesh well with multiple perfumes. It's very emollient, but sinks in quickly, and isn't greasy at all. The price is a little high for drugstore/Target lotion, at $9.99 USD, but I won't argue because the product is well worth it. The packaging is a little iffy, the pump on my first bottle cracked, so I replaced it with the pump from another Shea Moisture product (bottles are all the same size). I think the pump is also a little short, because it's a bit of a pain to get the last bit out. Still, I haven't found anything better, so I imagine I'll purchase again and again.
