    A little does go a long way. Scoop out a small amount and warm it up in the palm of your hand using your index finger. I use this on my elbows every morning and night; they are so soft! I use mineral Makeup and mix a small amount of the shea butter with BE Bisque to use as an undereye concealer. My undereye area stays hydrated all day long. I've tried a lot of (pure) shea butter brands, but this is my favorite.

    I love Shea Butter and use it daily to moistureize my skin after showering. The texture of this one was exceptionally difficult to remove from the jar. Once I removed it (poking really hard), small chunks did not rub in. They were all over the place. The scent was also unpleasing. I would only apply it at night prior to going to bed. On the other hand, it did moisturize my skin, but the grit and the longer time to apply were not worth it in the end.

    Comments about Out Of Africa 100% Pure Raw Wild Crafted Shea Butter, 8 oz:

    This is a good product, by using this raw shea butter, all my stretch marks are gone. I will keep on buying it till I feel it has done its total job. Maybe in another 5 months I'll try another product, but for now Im sticking with this great product. The only con is that it takes nearly an hour to dry. I usually stay naked after showering with the fan turned on to make it dry quicker.

      Comments about Out Of Africa 100% Pure Raw Wild Crafted Shea Butter, 8 oz:

      my son has had severe eczema since he was an infant. this seems to be the only thing that helps with his dry and itchy skin (other than his prescription oil which we still use during flare ups). it was so effective, i started using it on my own eczema spots and even use it as a night cream now. the only reason why i wouldn't give 5 stars is because it is pretty hard to spread in winter months since the butter solidifies. i found that the smaller size tin, also the out of africa brand, that we use for travel is easier to spread.

      This is the best shea I've found. It doesn't irritate my skin, and is an ultra thick moisturizer. I use it on my eyes, cuticles, heels. I've also mixed it with a little grapeseed or other oil to make it easier to use on larger areas. It can get stiff if it is cold, but warms right up.

      Comments about Out Of Africa 100% Pure Raw Wild Crafted Shea Butter, 8 oz:

      Let me start by saying this is VERY difficult to use. When I received the product it felt like a big block of wax. Digging my finger into it isn't too difficult, but the rubbing part and getting it to reach a spreadable consistency is very frustrating. No, it doesn't melt into a nice creamy buttery spread. It melts into a slightly sticky, waxy layer that you sort of pat over your face. The smell is very typical of natural plant oils... strong and not particularly pleasant. But I put up with it because (here's the good part) it really does make my face feel and look great! I have to wait a good half an hour for it to settle in and feel less waxy, but once it gets to that point my face is looking positively radiant and glowy. I can't say it's helped my acne, but it certainly hasn't made it worse either. And since I only need to use a little each time, this jar will probably last forever. It's just a shame the application process is so frustrating.

        Comments about Out Of Africa 100% Pure Raw Wild Crafted Shea Butter, 8 oz:

        I use this Shea Butter right after my shower and especially before going outside, I use it in addition to my moisturizer, or under the sunscreen. Once I've put it on, I don't have to worry about getting it on my clothing or it feeling oily on my skin.
        I know that I will use this product for the rest of my life.

            I LOVE this! I have very dry cracked elbows. I'm 34 and they are getting worst with age. My brother's elbows are the same way so I think it's hereditary. I've tried so many products and everything else only worked for an hour at the most. This stuff keeps my elbows mousiterized all day. I wish I would have found it sooner.

              Comments about Out Of Africa 100% Pure Raw Wild Crafted Shea Butter, 8 oz:

              I tend to get eczema in the winter and this stuff really seems to help. It is hard to work with as you need to rub it in hard or warm it up first, but it works very well on your skin. The smell isn't the best and it's hard to wash off your hands, but it is pure shea butter. It definitely works better for me than other moisturizers and I'd rather use this than lots of cortisone.

                This is a decent product for dry skin. A little bit goes a long way. It's natural, so that's a plus. Strong smell but that's raw and unrefined, and it goes away quickly. A little greasy, but it absorbs quickly. Decent price.
