This is a must have balm for my 8 yo with eczema/skin allergy issues. He says it feels so soothing on his skin and actually sighs with pleasure when he rubs it on! He makes sure we don't run out, because other lotions seem to burn when we apply them. This product does not. Some might think it is too heavy/greasy, but it works for us. I also use it myself when I feel the need for heavy moisturization like for dry winter skin or just-shaved legs. Wonderful smell and feel.

I have extremly sensitve skin and have to be very careful of what I put on my skin...I usually read labels to make sure product ingredients are natural and plant/vegetable derived. I have used Palmers products before-lip balm, cocoa butter with no problem so I ordered the shea butter without paying attention...BIG MISTAKE. Within seconds my skin broke out into a rash that took three days and a perscription steroid cream from my Doc to get rid of. My doc said there were some ingredients in the shea butter that weren't pure..I guess I need to read labels more carefully.

Comments about Palmer's Shea Butter Formula, 3.5 oz:

I ordered Palmers shea butter formula with vitamin E. Twice I received Palmers raw shea formula, not the shea butter. What I received is good, but has a fragrance. For me, the formula that I ordered and have used in the past is a little better, and I prefer something without the fragrance. After twice getting the raw shea butter, I decided just to keep and use it. Lucy Clark

    Comments about Palmer's Shea Butter Formula, 3.5 oz:

    Been using this for years. I use to use the Coco Butter Formula years prior to Palmers making the Shea Butter Formula. This Shea Butter Formula really softens my skin better than anything else. I use it on my feet nightly after I showers and then put socks on to seal in the moisture overnight. It has a soft scent that that is not at all overwhelming. During hot and humid months I just put a bit on my elbows, knees, and heels and just a dab on tip of my toes to tame any ashy spots. This can also ad a beautiful sheen to calves and legs. However, most importantly,this formula really does have healing properties( just like coco butter). It helped heal a few minor cuts I had on my skin. I still use the coco butter formula on my face on cold days when I go running outside. It protects my sensitive skin. This is a thousand times better than any expensive lotion / moisturizer out there. And, that's coming from a person who won't hesitate to spend a lot of money on expensive skincare if it works for me.

                Comments about Palmer's Shea Butter Formula, 3.5 oz:

                I can't believe the top "negative" review complained the smell of this balm. I got this product actually from the store, but will restock another one from Drugstore dot com. Unless the one i got from the store is different from here, I think this smells lovely. This balm has the texture of raw shea butter, but it doesn't smell anything like the raw shea butter though, which is the reason why i got it because i can't stand the smell of raw shea butter. For ladies who've tried raw African shea butter and like the texture, but not the smell, this balm is made for you. BTW, warm the balm on ur hand before you apply~ it should turn into liquid, sorta like oil~ a bit thick but not sticky~ excellent for super chapped skin~

                  shea butter is the best for eczema/psoriasis and this formulation is a favorite. Plus it's reasonably priced.

                      I was so looking forward to this product based on all the great reviews. After applying it onto my hands and arms, I couldn't believe all the positive comments. First of all, this stuff stinks - badly. It leaves a shiny coat to the skin, which I don't care for either. I may use it on my feet or I may throw it out. Either way I will be looking for a different product for moisturizing my skin.
