Reviews For Raw Shea Butter Body Lotion
Based on 31 Reviews
Strong scent, good product.
This lotion worked wonders for my skin, however it only got four stars because it is heavily scented and it gave me a rash- my skin is extremely sensitive.
- Katlyn Hillard
I wanted something thick and substantial that spreads easily, and this does all that, plus it smells great !
The BEST lotion you'll find - EVER.
I am a swimmer, a swim instructor, and have a pool in the back yard and so I usually come in and out of chlorinated water all day long with only one shower at the end of the day. After repeated exposure, my skin gets SUPER dry with water and sun (even though I am mostly indoors). I'm not normally prone to dry skin, so I look for lotions that can restore the natural glow that I normally have. I thought no perfect solution existed until I tried this one. Seriously. Perfection. Let me tell you why:
*healthy and earthy ingredients
*super thick, yet easy to spread
*super moisturizing (actually gets absorbed into the skin)
*long-lasting - because of its thickness, it stays on all day and feels great and not greasy
*BONUS: smells like heaven
I will never go back. The only con is that I feel I might use it too much and I am afraid of running out.
One other thought:
I think this would be the perfect pregnancy belly cream.
I am totally loving this lotion. I live in the dessert and my skin is always dry. This lotion makes my skin soft without feeling greedy or sticky, and my skin looks more smooth. I will be buying more and trying other products from this brand.
Very thick and strong aroma
I love Shea Butter and wanted to try this brand after reading the ingredient list. Plus side: it moisturizes deeply and keeps skin softer and longer than most lotions. Two things I found difficult: it was a heavy cream not a lotion and very difficult to squeeze out of the bottle; the smell was very strong. I love essential oils and have often used Frankincense, however, the aroma was over-powering. If you want your perfume to be this lotion, great. If not, don't use it, you won't be able to wear any other scent for hours and others don't always like the Frankincense/Myrrh aroma.
Smells great...feels great. It's really thick so add a little water to thin.
So rich and smooth it doesn't want to come out of the bottle easily but it is oh so worth keeping the bottle upside down to facilitate getting it out. I couldn't ask for a better body lotion.
Actually works well for hair too.
I rub a small amount into my palms and run through my hair 2 days in a row after I wash it. I have long thick course curly hair and this really leaves it more manageable. Like a leave in conditioner. Also tames the frizz. Nice to crunch it into the ends. Maybe just a little greasy at first, but soaks in and leaves my hair soft.
I love this lotion. It swells great and can be worn by men and women.
Works well for Eczema.
Great lotion! Super thick and has a wonderful, soft floral scent. My husband has awful eczema and this works very well!
This is such a luxurious lotion...my favorite, and I love the smell!
I have very sensitive skin and this lotion has not made me break out or burned once. I like the subtle smell and how soft it makes my skin feel. I would definitely recommend this lotion.
Wonderful full body lotion
Obsessed! Thick, creamy, keeps my skin moist all day.
Really great product
I have used this for 1+ years now with really really great results.
I love it
It's thick, it moisturizes and smells amazing.
I would swim in this...the smell and the rich moisture is perfect for me. I have very dry skin.
Might be too much for someone who doesn't have dry skin but I slather in on and it works wonders.
the Best but hard to squeeze
The softness and gentle scent is my favorite. You can use it on every bit of your body. It is hard to squeeze out the bottle.
- Thrive User
I don't really like the smell but its a good moisturizer
Love the cream, but hard to squeeze from the bottle.
This is a wonderfully rich, very thick creamy cream with quality ingredients. A little goes a long way and this bottle will last awhile. It massages in to leave skin soft, but not sticky. The scent for me is pleasant and very mild. My only objections is, it is very hard to squeeze out of the bottle. For me, it takes 2 hands and a lot of strength. I have resolved this by squeezing some out into a small jar and then using the cream from the jar.
I really like using shea butter for lotion. I take great care of my skin, but wow has it improved while using this! Leaves skin feeling smooth and my boyfriend loves how it smells.
This band is wonderful. The lotions are shea based and deeply moisturize without a greasy feeling. Vetiver is a wonderful fragrance but very strong.
Rich, but Heavy Scent
I love the feel of this lotion/cream--it's very moisturizing and emollient, and it has a really nice smell, BUT the scent is really much too heavy! If I wanted to use it as a perfume cream, it'd be great and last all day! I'd rather have the scent a lot lighter, so I could put it on at bedtime--I had to wash it off my hands before I could get to sleep.
Is great for Stretch Marks
I used this all through my pregnancy and after and it kept me from getting stretch marks. It's incredible! It smells great and doesn't leave my skin sticky like other lotions out there. I really like this lotion a lot and highly recommend it!
This lotion is great! I really love how soft it leaves my skin and it smells amazing too! The best smelling shea butter lotion I've ever tried.
This stuff is great! Besides leaving my skin super soft, my favorite part is the scent. It's so unique, light and beautiful. Highly recommend!!
My favorite lotion
I have seen a few reviews mentioning that they do not like the smell..That's so weird, because I LOVE the way this smell. I love the lotion as it is creamy and melts into my skin quickly..but it is the scent that makes me come back for more. I love and use essential oils, and know that oils respond with individual chemistry, but all I can say is people ALWAYS say how good I smell when they get a hug from me.
Great lotion but horrible smell
I really wanted to like this, because the moisturizing ingredients are perfect. I applied it and was immediately overwhelmed by the the smell. It think it is the frankincense and myrrh. It seemed to linger and was way too manly smelling for me. My 25 year old son said it smelled like grandmas. It took several handwashings to remove the smell. I am a migraine sufferer so it may just have been a migraine coming on (I did have one a few hours later), but I won't use it again because just the thought of it grosses me out, just like patchouli does. I would really love it unscented!
Scent way too strong
I ordered this lotion based on the ingredients. It feels good but I can hardly stand to use it as the scent is so strong. I am now looking for some unscented lotion to dilute it with otherwise I'll probably give it away to someone who doesn't mind the overpowering smell.
The real raw stuff
This is real raw shea butter the way it's used in African countries, that prize natural ingredients for their skin care. This is strong stuff, but it goes on light and then seeps into my skin and remains working all day long. Shea butter is a fantastic natural product, that is also good when mixed with essential oils. On its own, it has a pretty strong scent, but with the oils, it's pleasant and works on every kind of skin type, especially dry and flaky.

Tight n Toned Skin
This lotion is great for tightening and toning the skin. It also works to get rid of cellulite, scars, and stretch marks. I love how it smells. I don't even wear perfume anymore. On top of that, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated and looking healthy and bright. This lotion is great winter lotion since it is such a dry time and this lotion is super at hydrating the skin
It is a heavenly rich lotion that smells so good
It is a heavenly rich lotion that smells so good that you can eat it or drink it. The shea butter keeps the skin supple and moisturized like butter and you don’t need to apply perfume as the scent lasts for a long time. I love this lotion and only want to use it during winters. It not only tightens the skin but also keeps it smooth which is very good when we drink less water during winter season.
