This was a Christmas present for my daughter-in-law, so don't know.

04/01/2018

Very good quality. A must have for me.

29/12/2017

This is clearly a totally natural product, it does leave the skin tacky and I am not sure I will use it up that quickly, I was going to use the 2nd pot as a gift but not sure it would be suitable, can I return it for a refund or credit?

28/12/2017

The smell of the shea butter is very bad it smells like real spoiled butter and it is hard to melt it with hands and apply. I never going to buy this product again.

21/12/2017

Great, like the new packaging as well.

16/12/2017

Absolutly love this product. Have been prescribed so much stuff from doctors for my excema and thought I’d try something natural and my skin has very been so soft. After just 2 days I noticed my skin felt more moisturised and not in a greasy way like some

14/12/2017

It’s good but almost too hard and so difficult to get out of the pot without a knife or spoon and is then a bit flaky so you don’t want to drop bits on the carpet. Could you make this product softer and smoother?

12/12/2017

A bit disappointed with the consistency of this butter...it takes quite a while to soften ...and would take too long for body butter. I do appreciate it’s purity, but I find myself thinking I haven’t got time to keep rubbing it in forever!

12/12/2017

Amazing product and I will order it again.

21/11/2017

Very moisturing

22/10/2017

Great for excema!

12/10/2017

Very good quality Shea butter. It's a very versatile product, and a little goes a long way. I use this as a moisturiser for the day time by taking a very small amount and apply it all over the skin. Application feels very nice and it doesn't feel heavy on

11/10/2017

Seems all good

10/10/2017
