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.

Disappointed

By Trees

from Malden, MA

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.

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

    Was looking for a pure shea product, so I knew I was going to get a cakey type product. I bought it with lavender oil for a nice night time smell, which is supposed to help you sleep. I love this product. I put it in my hands to warm it and then it is easy to use. Am going to look for a whipped product that is similar in the organic natural ingredients. But this one is a good buy.

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

    This product and the larger sized unscented shea butter are both good for winter dryness and chapped skin. I purchased both but I believe the unscented shea butter lasts longer and adds more moisture. Neither is greasy. That's shea butter for you.

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

      After trying several brands of shea butter, this one is by far the best! It moisturizes amazingly and smells great! I felt like I had just been at the spa. The consistency is hard, but you just need to warm it up in between your fingers for a few seconds before applying. The results are long lasting. My skin was silky soft even the next day. I love this product, and the price is unbeatable for the value!

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

          The description indicates that this shea butter product is 100% "pure". I really do like the lavender scent. However, lavender has been added to it so it is not "pure". Often if you go into health food places or beauty supply shops you may be fortunate to find truly "pure" shea butter. It is generally in the form of yellowish chunks. With that said, I would still buy this again. It does not have an overwhelming scent and it does help moisturize skin.

          I purchased this product mainly for my husbands extremely dry skin. Of course I must try it and approve it first. It is a good product but somewhat hard to apply. I use it before or after the shower.

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

            I have very dry skin on my hands, especially during the winter. In the past, I've tried products containing Shea Butter, but never found them more effective than anything else. They always disappointed. I decided to give full strength Shea Butter a chance. Couldn't be any worse, right?

            Well, I can now say, de-lux Shea Butter not only works better than other products, it actually does what it says it will. And that is: Fix dry skin. My hands are not only moisturized immediately after application, they're still soft the next day. And to me, that's the real test. Temporary vs. long-term relief. Just wish I would have tried it sooner!

              I just finished my tub of this stuff tonight and I scraped out every last bit in there. Great to use at night after the shower; it does take time to get absorbed into the skin but worth the wait. I really like that the ingredients list out just two things: shea butter and lavender oil!
