I have acne-prone skin, and unfortunately Shea Butter was a bit too heavy for my face. Thankfully, the breakouts I got were pretty mild (mainly small pimples and closed comedones). I use it now on my lips and other dry patches, and it works wonderfully for that. If you don’t warm it up between your fingers first, it can definitely drag across your skin, which can cause irritation. Unrefined Shea …Read more

I believe this could be a life changing product for some people. If your skin or hair responds well to natural oils, it likely responds well to chlorestorol and fats. Shea butter is a fat derived from shea tree nuts in africa.

Unfortunately my skin seems to break out from all plant based oils (mineral and jojoba are not plant based oils just an FYI), and my hair seems to love …

Oh, how I love shea butter! I use it as a moisturiser on dry patches, on my feet and as a hand cream at night. I also use it to moisturise my under eye area and my eye lashes. I do use an eye cream too, but right before bed, I apply shea butter on top of it. It's really moisturising and if I apply only a small amount, it sinks in fairly quickly. I like to apply quite a lot though and then it …Read more

This works well to moisturize my hands, nails/cuticles, elbows etc. The scent is not my fav, it's nutty/earthy but not terrible and not long lasting. It doesn't irritate my eczema or psoriasis which many moisturizers do, I feel safe that I can use this on cracked and sore skin with no issues.
I can't use this on my face or in my hair. I found it made my hair tacky and coated …

Must-have product for me. I find it's best used as a kind of "sealant", since it seals in moisture. I use it as the finishing step on my face at night. I apply jojoba oil as a serum, my regular night cream, and after that's set for a minute, I apply a thin layer of melted shea butter. The result is really incredible, and despite my concerns it doesn't break me out at all …Read more

This is the best moisturiser I've ever found for my very dry face. So cheap and works so amazing.

For the past year or so I've been using shea butter for just about everything. I get mine unrefined, raw, organic, and fair trade through amazon.ca (who knew!) from a brand called Karitex. I've used shea butter for eczema treatment, lip balm, split end treatment, body butters, lotion bars, face cream, natural mascara substitute, and a couple other things. I completely treated/cured my …Read more

This is the thing one has to realize about 100% natural shea butter. In order to get the best effects from it, it needs to be either smoothed out (creamed) or melted to soften. (place in a microwave oven on medium to low temperature in a glass bowl, constantly stirring it until it is creamy. If you don't get the desired consistency you would like for your hair or skin type, mix in a small …Read more

I have struggled with extreme eczema ever since I can remember. And not just to the extent of really dry or parched skin, but to the point of having my body covered in dark psoriasis-like scales, my face, neck and feet the only things excluded. So, as you can imagine, at 23, I had exhausted any and every lotion, cream, prescription, etc, to no avail. I was actually in a beauty supply store for …Read more

I absolutely love this stuff! I always have a small pot available and use it as a face treatment. The way I apply it is I warm a small amount between my fingers so it melts slightly, then I pat it all over my face. I then massage it into my skin, it can be quite greasy but I use it as a overnight treatment about once a week so this doesn't bother me. It feels so soothing and luxurious. …Read more
