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.

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.

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.

My complaint is the jar itself. It broke when I receiving it. And the seal is not tight too.
Strong smell but that's raw and unrefined. So no complaint

    I have been struggling with Acne since my teen years. I have tried all of the pharmaceuticals and nothing. So a friend of mine told me to go natural. Use African Black Soap and follow with 100% natural Shea butter every morning and night. I did this and my skin looks the best it has in YEARS! It is great and such a confidence restorer!

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

      I looked around for shea butter, and most were in tiny 2-ounce tins or contained irritating oils. This was a good size and a quarter of the price. It's great for cuticles, eczema, dry heels, dry elbows, and irritated skin. Steriod creams and ointments are often necessary, but using this has reduced my use of them.

      With all natural shea butter, there is a slight smell for a few minutes, but I don't mind it. It works and it's inexpensive.

      I don't know how much of the antioxidants are stable since the jar exposes the stuff to air, but antioxidants or not--the stuff works.

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

          This product is amazing! It comes in an abundant round jar and offers alot of product for the value compared to equivalent products of high end competitors. The butter is actually very hard, but easily scrapes out (I use the back of my nails) and melts in between your hands for a smooth luxurious application. I use it for dry skin and to prevent pregnancy stretchmarks. Like any shea butter, it goes on somewhat greasy but then slowly absorbs into the skin. The smell is as expected -- it smells like shea butter! -- with no overpowering fragrances or artificial scents. I would recommend this product for anyone that is looking for a well-priced, natural shea butter product.

            I love shea butter. I read that it was really great for skin so I had to get some! I have even used this mixed with my foundation and put it on my face. AND I have pretty oily skin, while it felt pretty moist to the touch, it doesn't look greesy. It doesn't really feel greesy but the feeling is unique... It really gave my skin a youthful glow. Just be carefull not to use to much! It is very easy to make that mistake a very little goes a very long way! I also read that this stuff is better than cocoa butter for stretch marks.

                I purchased this product to moisturize my skin during my pregnancy. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily the Shea melted in my hands. I like that I don't have to put it in the microwave. I don't see an immediate difference in the appearance of my stretch marks but I plan to monitor them for the duration of the pregnancy and beyond. The smell may be intense for some, it's definitely an earthy aroma. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase.
