Shea Terra Organics Shea Nilotica East African Shea Butter (Certified Organic)

Not all shea butters are created equal. The eco-conscious folks behind Shea Terra Organics sourced this unrefined version from the Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative in Uganda, which is famous for abundant rainfall that helps shea trees flourish. Local women harvest the nuts by hand before sending them to a mill, where they’re distilled for the rich moisturizer that’s great for face, body, cuticles, and hair alike. Compared to its more common West African counterpart, this East African shea butter is creamier and has a less noticeable scent, making it ideal for sensitive skin.

Nice Idea, nothing Special

This just worked like a greasy lotion that wouldn't absorb into my skin. It's nice to revive in the sample box, but I wouldn't buy a full sized version. I have oily skin though, so maybe it works better for those with dry skin.

Update: Caution! Stains clothes!

I reviewed this product earlier and liked the light scent and the richness of the shea butter. However, I have to update and say that this lotion is not for daytime use. It is the winter, so I have ashy knees and elbows. I put this product on after my shower (a pea-sized amount for each knee/elbow), finished getting ready, and then put on my clothes. It seeped through the fabric of my top and my khaki pants and I have not been able to get it out in the wash. If you want to use this product, I would recommend only using it at night underneath lounge clothes that you are not worried about staining.

What the heck?

I received this is January's and December's birchbox....I don't really enjoy getting the same sample twice. The cream was really greasey too and I did not feel like is really moisturized my hands that well. There's better hand creams at the drugstore and they are cheaper. Not really interested in this brand.

I really thought that this would be a good product for myself but as I used it I was displeased and I thought that the scent was very unpleasant.

After putting this product on I left a grease stain on everything I touched.. Maybe good for use overnight but to much for day

This product was so greasy that I had to rinse it off my hands almost immediately. It smells pretty weird, too. Definitely not for me.
