Shea Terra Organics Whipped Shea Butter Ultimate Moisturizing Body Crème

We know, we know: It’s a total cliché to say a beauty product smells good enough to eat. But with this body butter's variety of dessert-worthy scents, we really can’t help ourselves. Thanks to 30 percent shea butter content, this anything-but-ordinary moisturizer soothes skin but doesn’t leave a filmy layer of residue behind. And it even helps relieve rashes, dry skin, eczema and psoriasis.

Best Creme for Very Dry Skin
Purchased

I always had very dry hands, especially around my nails. They constantly crack and bleed and no cuticle cream could ever save them. In the winter it is one hundred times worse and often painful. Because of this I usually carry an arsenal of different hand creams and non really ever made a difference longer than 5 minutes after putting it on.
Saw this recently on BirchBox Blog and bought it knowing I had nothing to lose.
Well I am obsessed now! This works so well on my hands and can really be used anywhere. It is a little greasy right after you put it on but with some extra rub in it eventually fades and leaves you with the most amazingly soft skin. No more cracked hands for me. I ordered the Bourbon Vanilla and it smells just like Vanilla Frosting, which for me I love. Having it on my hands is like a sweet pick me up during the day. If you do not like sweet smells I would not choose this one.
Again highly recommended for anyone suffering from dry skin. You will not be disappointed.

I love this body cream...more like a body butter!
Purchased

The Mango scent is divine...It makes my dry skin smooth and silky and ...It is nicely scented of the mango...It does not smell artificial or feel cloying.
It is thick, rich, and very penetrating. It sinks into your skin and brings dry skin such relief.
I will be buying this product again in the future. I hope Birchbox never lets go of this product!

OOoo, yummy?!

I ordered the full size in the Gingered Pumpkin scent, I was weary at first because of some of the reviews I read, but seeing as it's fall and I am a gigantic fan of pumpkin, and a good lotion, I had to have it! It's all natural, which also helped push my decision towards it. I chose right, I love it! Smells fantastic, and I love things that smell great, and I enjoy when the smell lasts more than five minutes after applying, this lasts all day, or all night! It isn't too greasy, and it absorbs into my skin quite well, so the bit of the odd feeling it may have on my skin disappears, which most lotions do this anyways. I expected that with shea butter even with it being whipped. The smell really resembles pumpkin pie, it's quite delicious. Fantastic for fall and winter months.

Beware of the grease
Purchased

This product smells amazing. I absolutely love it and a little goes a really long way. You do need to be careful not to use too much or else your hands will be so greasy you will need to wash them to do anything.

Smells delicious!

I am not sure I would ever purchase this product as I wasn't completely in love with the results. However, the smell itself was absolutely delicious! It was difficult to scoop out of the small sample size container, hopefully the full size would be better. I have used this on really dry areas like the elbows. Although it works, I feel greasy after the application. The smell though...it might just be worth it!

I have to say that this stuff works wonders but the smells can be a little overpowering. If you don't care for strong scents, perhaps this might not be the best product for you. That being said, if you love incredibly moisturized skin then you might be willing to deal! I was dealing was some really sever dry skin this summer and this was the only moisturizer that seemed to alleviate the symptoms. I received a sample in my birchbox and while I wasn't crazy about the scent, I couldn't overlook how incredibly soft my skin was after using. I've tried the banana and the gingered pumpkin which is more pumpkin than ginger. I'm about to order the pink guava and pomegranate. I'll let you know how that one smells!

smells good enough to eat

This product truly smells amazing. Would I buy the product? Probably not. Only because it is hard to get out of the jar. I am not found of the packaging. If you don't mind that, then you should consider trying it if you like sweet scented moisturizer. It smells good enough to eat!!!

THIS IS HEAVENLY

FIRST, THE SMELL IS AWESOME! IT REMINDS ME OF DESSERT. THIS CREME GLIDES ON MY SKIN AND LEAVES IT SO SOFT, NOT STICKY. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE.

Wanted to love, but ...

I had the bananas and boababs scent and it was overwhelmingly bananas (remember those orange circus peanut marshmallow-like candies? That's what it smells like). It was also a bit greasy for me. But my young daughter loved the rest of the sample, so three stars.
