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.

      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.

      Loved product, got bad batch!

      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!

      Disappointed

      By Trees

      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.

        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.

          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!

              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.
