I love this stuff!!! While I do not suggest it for an all over daily body cream, it works wonders for feet and rough patches. I love how it feels after a shower to rub this cream into my feet!! My feet have never been softer!! I get some rough patches on my neck and this helps there, too!! The fragrance is nice and this product is so very affordable and the quality is AAA+++++!~!! Can you tell I love it???

The smell was like rancid shortning. I would never put it on in the daytime, but I do use it on my very dry feet and legs at night. To mask the smell, I put a scented cream over iy and that makes it much more bareable and I stillI get the great benefits from the cream.

I was very surprised at the odor, because the handcream and 100% shea butter both smell wonderful. Because of this I called the company, and they emediately sent me replacements. Unfortunately, they smelled as bad as the first two jars. I know there must be some good jars out there because the reviews that have been written, are split between bad odor, and smells great.

    Comments about de-luxe Shea Butter Body Balm, 8 fl oz:

    This is a heavy-duty cream for really dry skin. It does absorb well, but also leaves a layer that protects your hands and other dry areas throughout the day. The only other cream that works as well is O'ccitane at more than three times the cost. The only down-side is they have not found a consistent fragrance. The current fragrance is great and I hope they continue to use it.

        It sometimes comes hard and not easy to use, so I have to put it into the microwave to make it soft enough to spread on my body

          My skin gets so dry and tight in cooler weather. This body butter is wonderful; it's soothing and effective without being greasy.

            This stuff is the worst! It is thick and waxy will not absorb at all. When I tried to warm it up in my palms and lather it on it just left little balls of waxy residue YUCK!

            Should Have Passed on This

            By 

            from Brooklyn

            Pros

              Cons

              • Doesn't Absorb Well

              Best Uses

                Comments about de-luxe Shea Butter Body Balm, 8 fl oz:

                Another reviewer said it best--this product 'pills'. I tried rubbing it in and it just sat on the surface of my skin. I rubbed a bit harder and it started collecting in little balls that I had to rinse off. Annoying. Also, it smells like a baby diapering product which is a turn-off. This is a 'thick' product but not a 'rich' one. More like paste than cream or balm. I gave it two stars because it works on small surfaces like hands (if you don't mind the baby diaper smell), just not large areas where you need to really rub cream in (like legs, torso, etc).Since the container is now open I'm going to use it on my feet before bed, cover them up with a pair of socks and call it a day.

                It doesn't absorb AT ALL. It is way too thick. It leaves pieces all over. I really wanted a thick cream, but this isn't going to work for me. I do not think it smells bad though, so I don't know what that is all about.

                NOT LIKE ANY SHEA BUTTER I'VE USED AND I

                Finally finished my jar and not a moment too soon! This is unlike any shea product I've used. The body butter pills!!!! I thought I was using the butter too soon out of the shower and was too damp for it to be absorbed, so I waited longer than usual until I was bone dry and the butter still pilled. Since I hate throwing things out, I took the butter to work for use as a hand cream-still pilled. Never again will I purchase anything from this line. 1 star is too good for it; I'd give a 0 star if I could.

                  Comments about de-luxe Shea Butter Body Balm, 8 fl oz:

                  I finally got this in the mail and tried it for the first time. I was a little concerned that so many people on this site said it smelled awful.

                  Well, all of those people are wrong, either that or they're so used to heavily perfumed stuff full of harsh chemicals that others, like myself, are allergic to, they have ruined their sense of smell.

                  It's a great product. It's a little greasy but it works wonders on sensitive allergy-prone dry skin!! If you use it overnight, it absorbs better. It doesn't smell any worse than Ivory soap in my opinion. :)
