|Ingredients:||100% Unrefined Shea Butter|
A small (4oz) tin containing 100g of Unrefined Shea Butter. Use a bit of this on rough patches of skin to keep dryness at bay. Can also be used as a post-shave product.
I'd long heard that unrefined shea butter is an awesome moisturizer, but I'd never tried it myself. When placing a recent skin care order, I noticed that Stirling offered a 100ml tub for just $4.00, so I snagged one for the lulz more than anything. I'm pleased to announce that the previous reports were correct; this stuff is indeed awesome! I will say, though, it does have a natural odor that is not altogether pleasant. Fortunately, it is easy masked, post-shave, with a few drops of a scented, aftershave splash that does not detract from its beautiful mousturizing properties. Likewise, the scent of the soap lathered on top of it drowns out the natural odor as well, and the boost in performance/shave quality, for me, is well worth the minute or so of unpleasantness one most endure while loading the brush.
In the interest of full disclosure, I must say that the initial application of this product does result in a a somewhat greasy feel that may not agree with those for whom a naturally oily complexion is present. However, for myself, one who usually suffers from over-dry skin, this product is great. It does go on somewhat greasy, but after 15-20 minutes it soaks in and leaves my skin feeling soft, supple, and very well moisturized without excessive oiliness. If you, too, suffer from very dry skin, I can't recommend it enough as a pre/post shave product. David R. on 22nd Feb 2017
This natural butter moisturizes my hands and face nicely, and provides a protective barrier against winter's cold and dry air. Unknown on 15th Dec 2016
I have bought plenty of "raw shea butter" off ebay and other places.
There is a whole world of fake shea butter, highly over priced shea butter and even butters that are not from shea nuts at all... but a similar African tree.
When I saw that these guys carried some... I figured "its a shave soap company... they are all about the natural products, and use shea butter in their soaps, so this must be legit?"
Mine arrived in a nicely decorated plastic tub instead of the metal tin in the picture, its nice. Oh and the butter... it is VERY different from what I have bought in the passed and the price was very good. Its much denser and seems to work... has a cleaner smell too. I am very happy with this product! max s on 18th Nov 2016
I ordered this as a replacement for my significant others cocoa butter lip balm sticks. No weird smells, smooth and very moisturizing. She says her lips have never been as soft as now, and I'd have to agree :-) Another great product from Stirling. I don't know why this hasn't been reviewed before. It's great all around and I have been using it personally for dry skin. I load this into empty lip balm sticks for easy transport. Chris Jenkins on 24th Aug 2015
