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.

Pros

    Cons

    • Complicated To Use
    • Leaves a weird residue
    • Not Effective
    • Poor Texture

    Best Uses

    • Throwing it in the trash

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

    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

    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.

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

        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.

              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. :)

                  Yeah, I love this stuff. I was kind of freaked out when it was unavailable. I hope drugstore.com carries it forever. Winters in Vermont are extreme on skin; this is the best stuff I've ever used. I use it from head to toe. Thank you for getting it back.

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

                      I use a lot of lotions. I tend to prefer body butter over lotion because body butter is thicker and moisturizes better. Water-based lotions don't really address ethnic skin care needs, but this does. It does go on a bit greasy, it will have you shining... but it is a good moisturizer for ethnic skin. It lasts throughout the day, so I usually apply it before bed or right after out of the shower. It is a lightly scented, thick body butter type lotion. It's better than the highly scented specialty shop store lotions, it moisturizes better, and is less expensive.
                      I absolutely love it!!!
