This is an early review, based entirely on how it smells. Not good.
I’ve only used it once, on my body at night as a moisturizer before bed. Compared to raw unrefined coconut oil, it feels more "dense" when rubbing it on…it’s more difficult to spread and rub into the skin…for example, using it as a lubricant for massages (or whatever else) is out of the question. The next morning, I felt as moisturized as I did with my raw unrefined coconut oil. But the smell…OMG, the smell is NOT good. When I use coconut oil, I smell divine, natural, luxurious with a light coconut scent…and my skin is off-the-charts gorgeous with a healthy glow after I apply it…there’s no glow with this shea butter. I’m sure it’s beneficial to the skin…I’m just going to have to find some uses for it, i.e., mix it with other oils to mask that awful smell.
I finally got my order and the consistency of my shea butter was nothing like what i saw pictured. It was runny and gritty and looked discoloured. I am not sure if this is 100% shea butter as it should be a harder if I am not mistaken. Disappointed in this purchase. Would not buy from here again. I want my money back!
This Shea Butter is excellent. It is far SUPERIOR in quality to the top selling "luxury" brand of Shea Butter from L’Occitane, which I have used for the past 15 years. I am pleased with this brand and plan to order more for my family members.
Not as soft as expected
I usually mix this butter w my favorite lotion because I don’t like the Shea butter natural smell. Other brands dissolve pretty easy, this one leaves some sandy texture when mixed and my skin does not get well mosturized as when used other brand. I don’n think I’ll order again
I use Raw African Ivory Shea Butter to stretch my natural hair. This product works wonders. I also use this product on my elbow, feet and and heels. I highly recomment the product. Spreads fairly easily and the smell is gently, not too strong. Lastly, it is a great moisturizer for your face.
The product is amazing. I use this for facial and skin care and this product has helped my skin a lot. It has been a brutal winter and this Shea butter has helped maintain my skin moisture. I also have acne marks and it has helped with fading those as well when I use it in my morning facial mask. Since it is raw it doesn’t really have a smell but it gets the job done and I would definitely buy this product again. The shopping was late but it was worth it!
This product actually helped clear up my skin and has kept it looking dewy and smooth. It’s a little oily feeling at first, but once it absorbs into your skin, it really feels amazing!
Great Shea butter
I like this Shea butter I used it to moisturizer my skin and on my hair as a sealant to lock in the moisture in my hair. So far so good. Came on time and I will order again
This is my first purchase of this brand of Shea Butter from this vendor. My initial reaction is that it is a wonderful product. It is very moisturizing, but not overly greasy. I could actually tell a difference from one overnight use. The dry winter has really worked my hands and feet over, but I think this product will help ease me in to summer quite nicely. I also was impressed by how large the jar was (16 oz.)! You do not have to use a lot; a little goes a long way. I do plan to reorder, but it will probably be a while since I got two jars on the first order. So far, this is better than any Shea I have used, If you like the really raw formulation, you should try this one. By the way, I was not afraid to put it on as a nighttime face treatment.Thanks for a great product!!
Lip balm. Cuticle butter. Scalp treatment.
A cheap lip balm & cuticle butter. I pack this instead of lotion and balm when I travel. Conditions my scalp and coarse hair in winter. Smells natural. No fragrance to cover up solvents or spoilage. I prefer this over slice of nature and Now shea butter that I used to buy. Will buy again.
Wow another product tha is favorable …. I received my item before the scheduled date without a doubt they are true to their description absolutely no additives. This produc works it leaves my hair soft and manageble I am a huge fan and will definitely order again.
I like it
Delivery was super fast and the product is legit. I bought it to mix it with other oils so for now it’s in the jar, as soon as I use more of this product I will update my review.
So, so good.
Easy to melt in my hands. It does seem a bit grainy at the beginning, but all of that melts out quickly when I rub it into the palm of my hands. I like mixing this with black castor oil to apply to my nail cuticle, hands and feet and sometimes my skin at night. Will definitely purchase again.
this is a nice shea butter,white and creamy,i like it but i dont like the gritty bits,i suppose because all shea butter has that quality(i think), i melted it and sieved the oil,then i whipped it with some oil,it works much better for me now,will repurchase this brand as it was fresh and good quality.
I am Loving this product! Good Stuff!
This product is awesome. I normally purchase shea butter from beauty supply stores in the clear plastic containers (you know the ones I’m talking about) but wanted to try something different. I love the texture and smell of this brand. I am using it everywhere! Hair, face, lips, feet, etc. Will definitely purchase again. Thanks
Sooo soft i keep slipping!
This made my skin soooo soft! I also put it on my feet, (my heels get real dry) and it was soooo slippery and caused me to slide and fall out of my sandals — this is not a bad thing — it means its super soft.I have always used lotions with shea butter in them in the past (jergens, etc.) but this is just so much better!It can be a little bit hard to get out and spread, because it hardens, but its not inconvenient or and issue or anything. I truly love this product.
Slow but effective
I have had this jar for approximately 2 months, and it looks like I barely scraped the top. I haven’t noticed any drastic results, however my skin is overall smoother and the other day I just started to notice the fading of stretchmarks. I think this is an amazing product based on touch, smell, moisturizing and even the slow healing properties. I would recommend this, and even though this jar will last me several more months I am purchasing another for when/if I run out
better shea butter out there
I’ve just about got this used up now and over the past few months, it seemed to get really clumpy. It becomes soft again after you rub it through your hands a bit but the clumps kind of get everywhere. I’ve found some other organic Shea Butter I like better now.
Great Shea butter with a nice nutty smell!
I mix this Shea butter with a carrier oil, like Argan or Almond or Jojoba oil until it is creamy. Then I use it for a massage oil. I’ve been in bed for over two years from back surgery gone bad. It has caused me to have skin issues and thisis helping me to heal. I love using it on my lips too. It really softens them. I was having serious allergy reactions (rash & itching) to whatever they put in my body and back during surgery. The itching has stopped and rash has improved. I’m still in the healing process, but this Shea butter is very nice. I was expecting or hoping for a glass container, but it is plastic.
This is amazing
This has evened out my skin tone dramatically and helps a lot with my dark spots. It leaves my skin nice and soft with a glow in the morning. I only use it at night and use it on my face and neck. I just love shea butter
An excellent choice
I bought this 16 oz raw unrefined Shea butter hopping to make a use of it for my dry skin. It came as in the photo , in anice container . It’s smell was tolerable , at least for me . I tried it on my hand and it gave me a better looking skin .
great for skin, but right out of the jar, the texture is gritty……
Good product to soften skin……The only problem is that’s it’s lumpy and hard….so I scrape out a a lot and place it on my skin to smooth out and the texture is gritty….like rubbing cream mixed with fine bits of sand.If I just rub the very top, I can’t get much because it’s hard.I also use Cocacare 100% cocoa butter, which I like.I do like Shea butter, but not liking the texture of this raw unrefined kind….maybe heating it will help.
Bought this to use for moisturizer
I was trying to find a natural moisturizer for my face, but they were all quite expensive and required a lot of research to see if they still contained badies. I bought this instead. It works very well, but is greasy so you are not going to be able to slather it on like moisturizer because there is no water to evaporate. I put a little on a saucer and put it in the toaster oven on 115 to warm while I am getting ready. Then I rub it on and wipe off the excess with a paper towel. I am still a little shiny, but I haven’t discovered a better way to apply. My skin is very acne-prone and this does not make me break out at all. If anything, it seems like it heals. Buy this with confidence, but know that it is going to be greasy when you apply it.
