I love the body butters BBW has to offer but I find the scents very nauseating. I needed something more moisturizing considering I work in the health care field so this is perfect! Scent free and really helps moisturize your skin. I only use this at night time before heading to bed considering how greasy it feels on my skin afterwards. It's god send for my skin.
I don't know why this product is getting such a low rating. I was skeptical to try this but am glad I did. I admit it is a pain to get it out of the jar but I figured out an easy way to do so - rub your fingers into the product to warm it up and the fingertips will pick up the product whilst you're doing this. I do this and its a breeze! As for the product itself, I'm really liking it because its 100% pure Shea Butter with no chemicals hence its organic and natural. Plus it really makes my skin feel like butter to the touch, and it has no perfumes/smell which is a bonus. One of my pet peeves however is that upon application my skin is oily and greasy but that is gone the next day (as I apply it at night before bed). In all I will repurchase these always. I'm really glad to find this product.
Wow! I have eczema and this stuff works like magic. I have used everything under the sun to treat my skin from medicines that cost upwards to 300 dollars. I no longer have insurance so the 17 dollar price tag thou maybe a lot to some is nothing compared to some of the prices i've had to pay to get my skin under control. Ive been using this for not even a week now and my skin looks 70% better, its less red, dry and starting to heal. The down side is that I use A LOT of it, since my skin is so dry, but if you have eczema you know how that goes. But I found my skin isn't as ashy as often as it can be on other products. I think ill look for more 100% shea butter products else were just to compare.
I love this stuff! I use it on my feet, body and hands. It seems greasy at first but seems to soak in, and I love the fact that it is so pure. I think it maybe too rich for my face, but I would trust it if I had to.
After searching high and low for pure Shea butter (I WILL NOT pay $38 at L'Occitane!), I still found the $17.50 price alittle on the offensive side, but made the most of a buy 2 get 2 free deal.
I know you can find the raw stuff for much less, but don't like getting yellow grease everywhere and I am not crazy about the raw shea butter's smell.
Much as I hate to pay full price and part with the money, it really worth it and I had trouble finding the same quality anywhere else for less money.
I had a gift card, and this was the only product in the whole store I could even find to buy, because I can't use most fragranced products. That being said, I don't understand the fuss about the price. Sure you can find shea butter for less at the health food store, but everything in BBW is overpriced - you can find many fragranced body lotions, even luxury ones, etc. at Target for half the price, and don't get me started on candles!...anyway, for the amount you get, I think the price is fine, considering it's so emollient and a little goes a long way. I use it mainly on my lips (imagine how many little tubes of balm this would make for the price!) and cuticles, and I love it. It's soothing, stays on, and actually helps my chapped lips recover. If someone else gives me a gift card, I'd buy it again.
I agree with all the reviewers below -- great product, absurd price. I got my tub at the BBW outlet for $5 (!!) and was shocked when I came home and saw the ridiculous regular price. I use this stuff as a general heavy-duty winter moisturizer for hands, feet, and even body (mixed with a regular lotion). I hate hand creams that feel heavy on, but given a minute and a lot of massaging in, this shea butter sinks in instead of sitting in a greasy layer. I also use a thick layer on my feet with socks at bedtime, and wake up to smooth heels. I truly like this product and its lack of scents or other extraneous ingredients, but I wouldn't repurchase because of the price.
I adore shea butter so much that I get nauseated at the thought of running out of it. I found this during a sale at BBW and since I was about to run out a purchased it for the $10 since it was on sale. Why do I give it only 3 lippies since I love it so much you ask?
-2lippies: for the regular cost at BBW which is somewhere around $18 US! Are they kidding? I can go to the nearest African Import shop in my neighborhood and get a much bigger tub scraped right out of the calabasa for about $8 US. Who'd want to buy it for such a ridiculous price when they can get it much cheaper? I too, was swayed by the pretty container it was in or i definitely wouldn't have purchased it right then.
I'm not a huge fan of BBW at all... a very overhyped company IMO.
I love this stuff. It has no additives and is very moisturizing. Took one lippie off because of the cost.
I was excited to get Too Shea at the semi-annual sale. They had them at the price of Buy One, Get One Free so I got two of them. It is basically 100% shea butter in a tub. The solid shea butter is really hard and difficult to apply, but maybe it's just my tub. I don't want to scrape it out so I warm it up with my hands first and then use my fingertips to get some out; it takes a long time! In fact, it is so time-consuming for an average product that I don't use it anymore. There are other products with shea butter in them in lotion form that I like better. However, it is fragrance free, so that is a plus. I'm sure I'll find some use for the rest of the tub, not sure what. It would be better if they made it into lotion form instead of a solid. The price is a little bit expensive too ($15.00) that I wouldn't be buying it again unless it was on sale.
I went into BBW in the hopes of finding something for my itchy pregnany belly. The sales person there helped me find this product and I was prepared to buy it even after noticing the $15 price tag. She then tells me that the price is wrong and it's gone up to $17.50! I say, "But you'll sell it to me for $15 since I noticed the mismarking, right?" She huffed about it but agreed to do so. After looking around some more I went to check out and she rang me up for the $17.50. I pointed it out and she proceeded to tell me that the other manager would NEVER do what I was asking and that she shouldn't either, but she did. She made me feel bad about $2.50!! I could just be the pregnancy hormones but I feel like BBW is a such a cheap and overpriced company that could really stand to improve their customer service. By the way, I really like Too Shea but it is just %100 shea butter. It could be found at any health food store I'm sure.
