It's hard to get it out of the container, then you must "moosh" it with your fingertips in your hand then rub your hands together and finally it's at a consistency where you can apply it to your body. It really takes awhile to use this, but once you get it soft enough to use you can work it into your legs and elbows and all those terribly dry places and it keeps skin nice and moist. I just wish it smelled better. Supposedly has "pure lavender essential oils" but I certainly can't smell any lavender, it almost smells like vegetable shortening (although shortening would be easier to apply.)

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.

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

      Not sure if I just received a bad batch, but the product did not live up to its expectations, considering all the good reviews it received.

      First of all, the smell is so bad. I think the only way to describe it is rancid. Second, not sure why, but it's gritty. I have never used shea butter that was gritty. I guess the only good thing this product has going is that it does melt and the grittiness goes away, but even after melted, the product is still so thick. I felt like I was smearing industrial grease on myself.

      It's also very stubborn. Washed my hands with super hot water and lots of soap but there was still a layer of this on my skin. So gross. How can something with such skin-friendly ingredients make your skin feel so disgusting? Also, doesn't absorb well at all. I put this on after showering, before going to bed. The next morning when I wake up, I still feel the disgustingness that is this product.

      I used it a few times over the course of several days just to see if maybe it was super amazing and left my skin super moisturized. This did nothing for me. Except make my skin feel smothered and disgusting.

      Would not even recommend this product to my worst enemy.

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

      I have gotten this product, cause lately i have problems with itching and skin on my legs. you have to take out small amount of products warm it up and apply. it has been always like this with every pure coconut oil i have been using ans same is with shea butter which i am totally ok with. the result is amazing, for more then 24 hours no itching, skin remained moisturized and i didnt feel like put cream again the whole day, which i usually do 3-4 times per day.But there is a big disadvantage, the product itself smells nice but after its application in 2 hours all your body and clothes will smell like a .... fish :'( it gives you this disgusting plume that only shower can beat. but i guess we have to scarify smth. the solution for me is i use it overnight before sleeping and take shower in the morning.

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

      This is not the most user friendly of Shea butters. You can't just open the jar and apply. It is very granular and they recommend you rub it in the palm of your hands to soften it. It becomes very oily in texture and does not dissolve evenly so you have bits of the granular pieces falling off your body. That being said it does a good job and has a pleasant fragrance but I would not buy it again...too messy!

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

        I use this shea butter on my face (eyes especially),arms, feet (very good!) and lips(better than any lip balm!!!!) all day and as a deep facial moisturizer at night. Simply put.....I use it all over, all the time! A little goes a long way, but if you're tired of lotions that just dry up THIS is the answer. Great for massage too. I also use it under my nails. This has never given me black heads or adult acne and because the ingredients are simple I feel better about putting it on my body. I always buy extra when I order because they make the perfect "quick" gift. I can't find this shea butter anywhere and other online sites cost way more! Note: Don't be fooled by other shea butters out there. They either add all kinds of "extra" ingredients or they just smell horrible! De Luxe Pure Shea Butter with lavender....it really is the best!

        I have been using this product for years and usually order 6 months to a year's supply when it goes on sale. Unfortunately, it appears they have changed their formula. The product used to be smooth and creamy. It is now lumpy and almost abrasive.

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

            I use this product for maintenance of whole body supple skin and to protect from climate when skiing. Used more often on my frequently washed hands due to my profession. My partner also loves effect, asking how I keep my skin so youthful. I have used this product for several years. I love it and have recommended it to others for treatment, especially, of winter-dry skin. Last batch of 2 jars contained a grainy texture that is more difficult to apply as it leaves white particles, some of which fall to the floor. This batch is also more greasy and less effective. I encourage quality assurance to better assess this product before shipping if it is a bad batch. Please change to original product if not. Having to dig through the original product is well worth the effort.

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

            I've been using this product for years and loved it. It really helps moisturize dry skin and even protects it when you bathe or swim.

            However, the last batch that I got was all dried out. When I tried to put it on my skin, little pieces fell everywhere and made a mess.

            Drugstore.com refunded my money, but I am very disappointed because I really like this shea butter. I don't know if this was just one bad batch, or whether their quality control has gone down. I saw that one other person had the same problem.

            I hope that the folks at DeLuxe see this and pay attention!

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

            I have been ordering and using this product for a long time and have always been pleased. My most recent order was a disappointment though. The texture of the shea butter was not smooth and creamy as usual. It has a gritty texture. Tried applying it to my skin thinking it would melt and smooth out but it didn't. I had to wash it off to get rid of the grit.

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

            I've been using this a couple years and found it really works for me! My skin gets really dry in the winter and I've been known to apply it all over my legs and arms - soaks in fairly quickly and really moisturizes. Also had some foot callus issues and it cleared those up too!

            Some people have reported how hard/solid it is. Oddly enough.. if I order it in the cooler months, it is medium soft! A couple that I ordered in the middle of the summer had melted in transit and were hard as rocks. So, I'm laying in a good supply in cooler months to avoid that problem.

            P.S. I am very sensitive to fragrances, but the one in this one is light and I actually like it.
