USDA Certified Organic Raw #sheabutter #review

*I wasn't paid for this review. I was given product free of charge in exchange for my opinion AND my opinion may differ from yours!*




Have you ever tried African Shea Butter? I have used shea butter in the past, but never certified organic shea butter. I was very excited to try this. You will get this huge tub, which is 14oz. You will  notice that it is packed to the top. They pour the shea butter in the container then let harden.


As soon as it arrived in the mail, I opened it and gave it the sniff test. I also swiped my finger in it and it was very creamy rich feeling. The scent is not something that can be described. It's not bad, there's just not a fake buttery smell like you get with the over the counter shea butter that may not be real. 
It is certified USDA organic so you know it's really organic! For being organic, this stuff is a steal! The price is something you can't pass up. You get so much bang for your buck as we like to say. A little (like really little) bit goes a very long way. Plus this is an FDA compliant & BPA free plastic container and lid to guard against plastic chemical getting into the product. You can't say that about many products out there. 


You can find all of the information on the packaging. I feel great knowing that this product was responsibly sourced from a woman's co-op in Africa to promote FAIR wages. That's a beautiful thing in my opinion. You can really feel good about purchasing this. You will feel good inside AND out! 


In my opinion, the product is too heavy and creamy for daily wear. It takes a bit of arm action to rub it in since it's natural and you don't want to pull on your face. What I did is I used it at night every other night in place of my night lotion. I did read that it can cause break outs (did not for me) so if you are prone to break outs, I wouldn't wear much on the face. I used it on our sons skin. He is 6 and has eczema  on his arms and legs. I like to keep my options open when putting things on his skin so I am always trying new things. I would rather use this on his skin then the steroid cream they give us at the doctor. It did keep his little legs soft and he wasn't as itchy. I will continue to use it on his skin. I was googling benefits of using organic African shea butter and I am loving that it says it's good for sunburn! We live on the beach in Hawaii now so even using the strongest SPF we will sometimes get a little burn. I will definitely use this the next time I get burned! Here are some of the ways you can use this stuff-

dry skin
skin rash
peeling after a tan
wrinkles
itchy skin
sunburn
rough feet
frost bites
stretch marks
insect bites
eczema 
dermatitis and more! Just google it!

Are you convinced yet? You should get a tub BUY HERE  You won't be disappointed. I can see this tub lasting me 6 months to a year even. Thank you for taking the time to read my review and if you have any questions or comments please leave them below. 
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
