I purchased this because it was on sale, and therefore less expensive per ounce than my usual brand of shea butter. Shea butter takes a bit more patience to use than other heavy-duty moisturizers -- it's easier to spread if you let it melt in your hand first, and it takes thirty seconds or so to really sink in (after that, it's not greasy at all). Aside from those minor issues, I've never gotten more moisture bang for my buck from any other product. The scent is light, and fades quickly, which I prefer. And once it soaks in, it has a much more comfortable feeling than most petroleum- or oil-based products I've tried. I use it instead of lip balm, and find it doesn't clog the pores around my lips like petroleum-based lip balms do. And it's great for any kind of dry skin in any area -- elbows, feet, anywhere. As one example, when winter-dry skin on my hands is driving me crazy, I'll spread it on my hands before bedtime -- it's almost like a protective glove all the next day, and my hands are baby soft. The need to reapply the next day is rare, although I sometimes use lotion to supplement it. I've even used it as an eye cream, and when my entire face was chapped from the wind, I've used it sparingly as a facial moisturizer. No problems, excellent results.

This stuff works fabulously...

...and smells like ...something that drugstore.com will not let me write.

Maybe this is just me.. but the lavender fragrance is either not enough to overwhelm the smell of the shea or it's too much or my tub is rancid or... something. Because it smells awful. But it works magic. Solution: take some, apply to feet, put on socks, wash hands immediately.

I basically liked the product, but do not like that it is so solid it takes effort to soften it for use. I would have given it more stars if easier to apply.

    The skin on my legs has always looked like snake skin and I thought that I would never be able to get rid of that dryness. But after one use of this product I could tell that it was well worth my money. I have been using this product for about four days now and it has left my snake skin legs feeling smooth and has greatly reduced the appearance of the scale like dryness. I only use this product after I get out of the shower but it lasts all day. I will be buying this product again.

      This is a great moisturizer. It smells great. it is all natural. Living in a hot and dry climate as I do can really zap the moisture from your skin. I also suffer from mild eczema. De-luxe shea butter moisturizes my skin all day. The price is also very nice. I have seen other shea butters costing much more.

      My delivery from drugstore.com arrived promptly and in good condition as always.

        Comments about de-luxe Shea Butter 100% Pure, 3.5 fl oz:

        Perhaps I was naive when I purchased this, but I was expecting a creamy consistency for this body butter. I got this because it's more natural and paraben-free. However, I would definitely not have purchased it had I known that you had to warm it between your hands before applying, and even then it's horribly difficult to smooth over my skin.

        Otherwise, it is very moisturizing and the lavender one smells just like it, without being strong and lingering for ages. I only removed one star because of the consistency that I was not expecting, which is not the product's fault. I, however, will not be using the rest and only wish I could return it.

          I've used many brands & I love this, so pure & natural and it has a hint of lavender which makes me smile. I use it summer or winter. I take a pea size of the butter, smooth/melt it on my finger tips, & pat on my face. It is wonderful & it didn't cause any break-outs like those Regenerist & Avon products. The price is awesome too. I tell everyone I know about this. :)

            Comments about de-luxe Shea Butter 100% Pure, 3.5 fl oz:

            Since you have to dig up the shea butter out of the container and then melt it in your palms before applying, it does take a little while. If you're in a rush, this is a real pain. But I frankly like the time it takes -- it allows you to appreciate the great lavender scent and ultimately makes moisturizing a pleasurable ritual.
            It really softens the skin, but is a bit greasy afterward. The fact that it's all natural, however, more than makes up for that for me.

                Comments about de-luxe Shea Butter 100% Pure, 3.5 fl oz:

                I tried this out with some trepidation, as I've been on a long search for solutions to my severely dry skin. This shea butter works better than most lotions or body butters I have tried, but it's just short of perfect. The plus side: It does exactly what it's supposed to do, and it does it well. I like to put it on my hands, feet, and elbows before bed, and I wake up with wonderfully soft skin. As a bonus, I also have found it helps with my cuticles and the cracked skin on my hands (as I said, my skin is extremely dry). This shea butter takes a few minutes to absorb into the skin, but that's always true of 100% shea butter, and this does feel nice once it's soaked in.

                On the down side, though, I'm really not crazy about the "lavender" scent. The smell is not offensive, exactly, but it is strong and it lingers. This is another reason I tend to put it on before bed, so I can wear it overnight, but switch to a more pleasant-smelling lotion during the day.

                This product is worth a try for its moisturizing properties, but I'm going to keep hunting for an equally moisturizing, but better-smelling, alternative.

                The overpowering Lavender scent made it impossible for my daughter to use this product. I have a son with asthma, and the scent was so strong he had trouble breathing around her.
