Rated 2 out of 5 by zumbalady Hard to use
So....this is the WORST shea butter I've purchased. I bought this because it had the added essential oils....but you cannot get this stuff out of the jar. It's just caked in there....very hard. If you do get any out....it will not blend on your skin, it just falls to the floor. I should send it back, but I also make my own lotions and will try to blend with my blender with some other oils to see it I can use it that way. I will never purchase this again. I do love the NOW brand that Swanson carries. This one is pitiful....and really unusable in the container it comes in.

I have used a lot of different shea butters for skin care, I play percussion which takes a tole on the hands and i have used shea for years and found this one to be excellent.Best used lightly warmed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chimom5 quality control ?
I have ordered this a couple times. I was very happy until the last order. Usually this product is very creamy and soft with a pleasant sent. The last time I received this it was grainy with very little sent.(as mentioned by last reviewer) I am ordering again and hoping for the previous quality. If the quality is not there again I will not order any more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Songbird71 Don't like the texture
it is grainy and hard to smooth on your face. Does feel good after working to smooth all the grainy texture. I am sure it is good for the skin.

OMGoodness. The scent of this product is dreadful! The stuff headaches are made of... I Love frankincense and myrrh oil, but this smells like some commercially made perfume. I would not guess that it was frankincense and myrrh. Need to go shower again and hope I can scrub off the little bit I put on my arms. A lot of people seem to like this, but I am sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EarthyBudgetingWife Wonderful multi-purpose product
This raw shea butter smells so nice with the frankincense & myrrh. It works well on the body, face and in the hair. I put a little in my home made indian herb shampoo to keep it from being too drying...with this my hair feels so soft and looks very shiny. I agree with others...a little goes a very long way, you don't need much at all.

I do wish you still carried this in a plastic bottle. Much easier to dispense, and tidier.

Great moisturizer with a very pleasing fragrance. A little bit goes a long way, so it can really last a long time. Nice to use after showers or baths.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lasinger711 Yummy Smell/could be more moisturizing
I LOVE this product but wish it were more moisturizing. The smell is so delicious, and the product has a silky texture, but I find my skin is thirsty after using it. I have VERY dry skin, so someone with normal or oily skin should find this a superior product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mandolino SO rich and creamy, sigh....
Love love love this cream. Fantastic feel, smell, and price! I had been using the shea lotion by Nubian Heritage (which is discontinued), and although I think that smelled even better (with honeysuckle!), this cream is incredibly rich and absorbs well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natalie2013 good for maturing skin
when skin gets mature it is important to provide good oils for it. This cream/butter has good ingredients and thick-hard texture. It melts in hands. I put a little bit of it on my palm and mix with squalane oil or olive oil and then on my face in the morning or evening. The skin looks oily but not for a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rottie12 Just ok
This product smells nice and leaves skin soft but it is greasy once on the skin. For that reason I don't like it for use in the morning because it tends to get in my bangs if use on my forehead which is very dry and that's where I need moisturizer. So it makes my hair greasy and unless I just use it at bedtime and wash my hair when I get up I end up walking around with greasy oily hair. I wish it absorbed better and then I would have rated it higher.

My sister gave me this product as a gift. At first, I wasn't too sure about it. Now, I am hooked. It smells wonderful. I use it on my skin and hair. I don't use it as my only lotion. I use it as a complementary body moisturizer. In addition, I use it alone or with whatever scent I choose for the day. People are always asking me what I am wearing that smells so good. I just smile. Thanks for a great product.

I love this product! I tried it about a year ago randomly when I saw it on another site. The scent is AMAZING and not overbearing. It makes your skin incredibly soft. The jar is tiny though! I wish there were a bigger size. Overall I give it a 10 on a scale of 1 to 5!

I’ve used Shea butter before from an expensive company but was always looking for something with frankincense and myrrh. I’m glad I found this product; I used this on my face, lips, and hands last night to try it out. My skin is very soft and my lips stayed soft through breakfast and a cup of coffee. I read the other review and was curious about applying it to my hair. I have blond highlights in my hair so it tends to be dry now. After blowing it dry, instead of using my usual serum and paste, I used a little of this product in my hand, rubbed my palms together to melt the product then styled my hair. My hair is so soft and shiny, perfect for the weekend. This holds my style enough that I won’t be using much hairspray. The scent is strong yet despite my hypersensitivity to fragrances, this combination doesn’t adversely affect my skin at all. The only negative comment is the packaging (plastic); I would like to see (and pay the higher price) this product packaged in glass. Great product! I’ll be re-ordering when it runs out (probably next year since it lasts so long). For anyone wondering how much I use: with a cosmetic spatula, I scrape off enough to fill the well of the spatula only 1/3 for my face and neck including my lips (any excess goes on my hands and cuticles); for my hair I fill the well of the spatula ½ full and that’s enough for my thick, layered, collar-length hair (think of a layered bob cut).

This is an awesome product, I love the way is makes my hair and feet feel.
Not only that the smell is wonderful, comparing it to natural musk oils the fragrance lasts very long and my skin love it.

We're fans of plain shea butter (Swanson's is a great value). This is a bit softer because of the other ingredients and smells amazing!
