After realizing that my beloved Kiehls avocado eye cream was mostly shea butter, I decided to try pure unrefined shea.
The brand I use is Out of Africa, and I get the smallest 0.5 oz/14 g tin from Iherb.
For my dry, sometimes flaky eye area, it does the same as the Kiehls, it moisturizes and makes my skin look fresh and hydrated.

I use this as a sleeping mask, night cream, body lotion & lip balm. Thanks to puberty I've gotten loads of stretch marks on my breasts, buttocks, thighs and hips, and using this has somewhat helped to make them fade over the past years. It's amazing when used to fade scars. My acne scars have faded quite a lot using this. I really wouldn't recommend using this under makeup …Read more

I use it as a face treatment,once or twice a week after pilling or cleansing mask I apply it thickly on my face before going to bed.In the morning after I wash my face skin looks beautiful.It's not as melting or liquid like as coconut oil,so when I tried to apply it to my hair it was just kinda sticky and gross.Also I do not like that nuts/dirt like smell.I find this to work better on my …Read more

I used to use loccitane's refined shea butter. It was great but I wanted to try the unrefined shea butter last year.

Compare to the refined shea butter, The unrefined shea butter's texture is a lot thicker. Color is yellowish grey. It Melts a little slower with body temperature. Smells slightly different. I prefer the unrefined shea butter, because it is Very cheap on …

This is amazing stuff. I have very dry & sensitive skin. I apply lotion every time I wash my hands or shower. My hands can still crack. Shea butter is amazing. I apply to my hands, elbows & feet at night & they look & feel amazing. Soft & soothed. I use this on my face over a lotion a few nights a week. Every night would be too much. Under makeup this is just too greasy & …Read more

Edit- amazing addition to a diy henna gloss, makes hair stronger!

I have been using this for several months. It is yellow (see Jostylin's video on youtube on the topic, to find out why yellow shea butter is not bad but possibly even slightly more beneficial than the usual), 100% raw/unrefined, from Ghana. It was quite inexpensive for a big tub, and I am not even halfway …

From what I've seen, people either absolutely love unrefined shea butter, or they hate it. I, very fortunately, fall into the former camp.

I picked up a whole tub of unrefined shea from an old African lady at my neighborhood's street fair. She scooped it right from the shell it was in, put it in a plastic take-out container and sold it to me for $5 (!!). Dirt cheap …

Unrefined Shea butter is a staple for me. I use it in my DIY eye cream and DIY cuticle and hand moisturizer.

As a rich eye cream and cuticle balm I mix unrefined Shea butter with maracuja oil and a few drops of vitamin E oil. I use this concoction on my neck during dry winter as well. To be honest, this DIY balm has been more effective at keeping my under eye area line free than a lot …

Oh shea butter where have you been all my life and why did it take so long for me to realize you are my perfect moisturizer. I have Combo, break out prone, sensitive skin. The only time my skin stays clear is when I don't use moisturizer and not eat dairy. The dairy part is easy but when you are 41 and getting wrinkles you need moisture!! So in comes Shea butter. I discovered this after …Read more

Am experimenting/trialling individual ingredients for facial skincare and it is becoming quite clear that I cant tolerate butters: coconut, cacao and now shea are causing fairly obvious breakouts.

I did my research and bought the best I could find in my online market (UK): unrefined, organic, raw cold pressed and fair trade.

I was hoping to use as part of a day moisturiser …
