I have a sample of this in French Crumb Cake, it smells absolutely delicious, totally foody, and the best thing is it really softens my skin, I am totally in love with this stuff.

Some woman suggested me to try AZW stuff and she recommended this Shea Butter Body Cream. Sorry, but I can't believe so many people actually like AZW products. I tried some other prodcuts from AZW also, but didn't like any of them. The scents are supposed to be natural(?), I heard, but don't smell like so... Very arificial to me and the texture of creams/lotions aren't so impressive like they say... To be honest, there are a few other brands that make so much better body care products than AZW makes.

I bought this in Vanilla Cream Cake. This deserves a "5" for its luscious, nourishing moisturizing properties - my superdry bodyskin stayed soft all day! However, the fragrance had a little plastic element and I don't know if it's just this fragrance or the cream itself; reading the review below me I see that someone else has detected this, so maybe it's the cream but who knows. The plastic smell diminished once I got past the initial product in the top of the bottle, but sometimes I could smell it lingering, sometimes not. After falling in love with Sephora's delicious Triple Layer Cake bodywash, I become more compelled to cake fragrances. This is nice, more like a sugar cookie to me than cake (DH says it makes me smell like Vanilla Coke!), but not as scrumptious as that Sephora wash. So I am enjoying using this up but don't know if I'd purchase again. I would have been open to buying in another fragrance if another reviewer hasn't mentioned that plastic smell. UPDATE: I tried my yummy sample of Vanilla Apricot and NO plastic smell! Though there was very little apricot, it was mostly a true strong vanilla scent with a really vague fruity note. I'm learning that AZW does single fragrances best, as the combo frangrances I've tried (the Vanilla Apricot and Marshmallow Ambrosia) usually have one element that overpowers with the other element(s) nearly non-existent. Another UPDATE: Tried a the sample of Pamplemousse and it starts out nice & fruity, ended up a little stale/weird. So I recommend obtaining fragrance samples before you purchase.

I got this from the lovely GreenFaerie in Tuscan Vanilla. It is an interesting texture...rather like marshmallow fluff. It sinks in rather slowly and leaves a glow on the skin. The Tuscan Vanilla scent is a dead, dead ringer for IPdF's Vaniglia del Madagascar. Seriously, I have the original and there is literally NO difference. I would seriously consider trying this in other scents, especially the standard-setting Melissa's Blend. EDIT: The more I use this, the more I notice a plastic undertone (which is present to a lesser degree in the IPdF original, but is magnified in AZW's cream). Boo.

I got this in Blackberry Musk to layer with my Trish #9. First off the cream it self is fab. I love it. It's thick but spreadable and has slip. The scent is wonderful. Sweet, tart, and warm. I got this in the flip top tube but kinda wish I got the pump. The good thing about the flip top tube is it is more portable than a pump- so I guess I really shouldn't complain. I would like to note that shipping is super quick- about a week after ordering.

In terms of mosturizing and nourishing your skin without greasing, I think AZW Shea Butter Body Cream is the best formulation out there. I took one lippie off out of disappointment that it wasn't free of chemical preservatives (paraben..) but so few out there aren't. Some of the scents are absolutely gorgeous (lemon creme is genius) especially if you like your foody scents to be unabashedly foody. You can also have the benefits of the cream without the scent in the unscented version.

I've used AZW products for about three years and love the shea butter body lotions! I have many different scents: lemon buko pie, lemon creme, pineapple grapefruit, nectar of the gods, vanilla cream cake, citrus squeeze, raisin cane, etc. and they all smell wonderful and are very moisturizing without being greasy. Hands down, my favorite body products from any store or e-tailer. Very high quality and the scents smell authentic, not like plastic and chemicals, as is the case from a few other e-tailers I've bought from. The customer service is great as well. My orders arrive promptly and with samples every time.

I have this in Vanilla Sandlewood. The scent is wonderful,very true yet soft sandlewood and a nice,light vanilla. The cream itself is great,thick and very moisturizing and absorbs fairly quickly. I've already ordered this twice.

Nice moisturizing lotion. Not rich enough for those with very dry, winter skin but moisturizing enough for spring and fall.
I have this in Blackberry Musk which smells very true to it's name. It's a nice rich and well rounded scent that is lasting. It's a little too sweet for my taste but I've been complimented by others on the scent, which is not a bad thing :).

The food-type scents smell like plastic play-doh. The only scent I would consider repurchasing would be the marshmallo ambrosia.

Tried this in strawberry-lemonade and love it! Very realistic strawberry scent with a zing!

I think this is the most different out of all of AZW formulas. It looks thick and creamy, but when applied, it has a ton of slip. None the less, it absorbs fairly quickly and isn't the slightest bit sticky or greasy. I also like this because it comes in a very cute and convenient pump.

I don't really know if I'd classify these as body creams so much as body liquids or syrups or something. They're just too watery and difficult to blend in to be considered shea creams. When I imagine a shea butter cream, I automatically think of something thick, or at least substantial and not liquid-like, and something that moisturizes and makes my skin feel supple and soft. None of these is the case with AZW's body cream. The scent range is wonderful and it would be a true feat if they could get rid of the watery formula they've adapted.

Sensual Vanilla shea butter body cream -- in a neat pump very attractive container. It makes you feel so smooth, and I like the smell -- very nice -- not quite strong enough for me tho. I am enjoying it, and it absorbs into your skin and leaves you very silky smooth.

I really like the texture of these lotions. They do go on somewhat watery/greasy at first, as all of AZW's lotions do, but they are moisturizing and all the scents I've tried last a long time.
I have this in sugar drops (vanilla/caramel/almond-y) and vanilla cream cake (my favoritie foody scent by them).

I have this in grapefruit-vanilla, which sounds odd but is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy--a really refreshing scent, yet it has depth. It's very moisturizing, the texture is creamy and sumptuous, very little product does the job, and it absorbs almost immediately. I've repurchased this several times and will continue to do so.

First off, I've gotta say that I love the pump style bottling. It seems much more hygienic than jars that you usually see from other lines. And the shea butter body cream itself is divine. It sinks into my skin almost instantaneously and leaves it feeling so soft. It is a bit more expensive than some of the other lines out there, but the packaging and their scents are worth paying a little more for IMO.

I tried the shea butter body cream in the pump bottle in Creme Brulee. First of all, I love this packaging. The pump bottle is fantastic (I do not like jars) and the black plastic looks more elegant that most other plastic bottles. As far as the scent, I had to try two different samples before I got one with any scent at all. Then I purchased this is in the full size because I really liked the scent of the second sample AZW sent me. This is not a sweet, caramel-type creme brulee. I do receive compliments when I wear this cream. I just wish the scent was a little stronger and longer-lasting. The texture of this cream is a little different as well; hard to describe.

I was so excited to get this, and when it finally came to the door, I opened the package and began slathering this all over my arms. The smell, Cinnamon Buns, is amazing, but a little more spicy than I expected. Unfortunately, within a few minutes, my arms started stinging and turning red, I had a reaction to the Cinnamon oil. Big bummer, because it really does smell divine. I also got the Roll-On in Cinnamon Buns, which does the same thing to me :( The only way I can smell like this is to tossle it through my dry, curly hair, then quickly wash my hands....too bad...

I have mixed feelings on these lotions. They were offered in Summer of 2001 and will probably return again! They go on like water and take awhile to set in, though they do leave me soft and moisturized.
My favorite scent is Lemon Creme...a smooth, sweet lemon which reminds me of lemon cake batter or lemon ice cream.
The Creme Brulee is a rich and buttery carmel vanilla which has hints of plastic sadly. The Vanilla Abricot (no longer available, at least not now) is an odd scent, pretty but I can't smell apricot or vanilla! The new Nectar of the Gods scent is beautiful and realistic though. A sweet mix of peach, vanilla and apricot.
I do wish they came in prettier containers, oh well, can't have it all!
