Why You’ll Love It

Dry, thirsty skin? Meet your savior. A water base can dry out your skin, but this extremely rich cream uses wild-harvested, organic shea butter from a Fair Trade women's cooperative in Ghana. Ultra-hydrating organic extra-virgin coconut and olive oil absorbs deeply into skin and stays put. Works well for body and face.

The best for dry skin

Posted   by Mary-Beth from CHARLOTTE, North Carolina

This is the absolute best for my dry, scaly hands! I put it on at night before bed and my hands are so much better in the morning. If I have extra time after a shower, I like to use this as my all-over moisturizer. It takes a little more time to soak in.

Ultra Moisturizing

Very thick so a little goes a long way. I’ve been using this on my face every night in the winter and have noticed an improvement in my skin. It’s very healing and moisturizing.

Good formula

Posted   by Samantha from REDLANDS, California
I was so excited when Thrive started to carry S.W. Basics! I've been using them for just over three years and used to love this Cream and it became my staple facial cream up until they changed the packaging. The formula is super nourishing and heavy duty if you don't mind dewy skin. I would even use it under makeup. If they bring back the glass jar I would repurchase but I've purchased the tube multiple times but I don't like it for multiple reasons. I appreciate S.W. trying to make it more travel friendly but it just becomes a greasy mess to carry around and the tube eventually starts to crack. It's worth trying if you're looking for something super nourishing and don't mind finicky packaging.

It was okay

Posted   by Eva from LOS ANGELES, California
It was okay, I liked how exfoliated my skin, but the smell wasn't so great and it made my skin feel like I slapped butter all over it, not in a good way.

wonderfully thick moisturizer

Posted   by Betsy from COLUMBUS, Ohio
We love this cream! My teenage daughter and I both use it on our faces and hands and any where in between. Even my younger son uses it to calm his dry wintery skin.

s w basics

this stuff is almost impossible to squeeze out of the tube...practically had to step on it. And it smells AWFUL. Thought I would use it on my feet because of the smell, but even that isn't pleasant

This stuff is amazing!

Posted   by Katie
Love the clean ingredients. A little goes a long way so this has lasted me 5+ months. I'd compare texture to solidified coconut oil so it's a great moisturizer for anywhere on body - I use mostly as hand cream and face cream. Also helpful to rub on your hands to then tame flyaway hairs.

Miracle Worker

Posted   by Karen
I have super dry, painful skin and this stuff is a miracle worker. A tiny bit goes a long long way and the relief I get from this product is amazing. I use a teeny tiny bit in the mornings under my makeup, then put it on fairly thick at bedtime. I have noticed a huge improvement in my skin. As a side note (and nothing against this product), we keep our house at 68 degrees and it takes a lot of work to get this out of the tube. It is pretty solid at that temperature. I will seek out the open container going forward, but I will definitely continue to use.
