Pure Shea Butter has got to be one of my absolute favorite beauty products. There are so many different things that it can be used for. From DIY deodorants, lotions, body scrubs, and hair masks, to simple moisturizers that work like magic on severely dry skin.
This Pure She Butter from Beauty by Shea, is one of my favorite brands. It comes in a resealable package, and is formed like a slab of butter. There is a very earthy scent to shea butter, which I like, but I usually add a few drops of essential oils to the butter.
I have always had very dry skin, and unfortunately I have passed it on to my kids. It is very hard to find a lotion that moisturize their skin, without having to reapply multiple times throughout the day. So, I was very excited when I tried this shea butter, and found that, not only did it do an amazing job of moisturizing my body, but I also did not need to reapply throughout the day...it was a one and done, type of experience.
Shea Butter is a semi soft solid, that melts with your body heat, and I have found that by whipping it, you get a great consistency moisturizer, that is easy to apply. Again, there is a nutty earthy scent to pure shea butter, so adding your favorite essential oil to it, would be a great idea.
