I have searched high and low for a great skin moisturizer and now that cold, dry, blustery winds will be upon us soon I have really been slathering on the lotions, creams and body butters. Lately I have been a big fan of Shea butter, which is a great natural alternative to use instead of what I used to use in the winter, petroleum jelly. My skin was so chapped and sore that I would use straight Vaseline out of the jar. It was the only thing that helped my skin from getting worse. I have tried other Shea butters, but when my favorite skincare company asked me to review theirs I jumped at the chance. This is the same company that makes the Adovia products that I am always raving about! Cleopatra's Choice Shea Butter is 100% natural, completely pure, paraben free, and cruelty free.
Shea butter is used to treat a ton of different skin issues, and is rich in vitamins A and E. My favorite way to use this Shea butter is as a nighttime moisturizer: On my face at night because it moisturizes without clogging pores, I even put it on my lips before bed, to help fight chapping. It's a great overnight moisturizer after wearing sandals all day, slather on some Shea butter and cover feet with socks, feet will look and feel much better in the morning. Cleopatra's Choice Shea Butter is the best that I have found to use in my dry, frizzy hair. I rub a bit on my dry ends every night and lightly apply to my hair and scalp to help improve the way my hair looks and feels the next morning. My hair is soft and shiny and it doesn't weigh down my curls or look or feel greasy.
Cleopatra's Choice Shea Butter is available on Amazon.com and is currently under $10 for a 1 lb tub. Which is great considering you don't use very much. I've had this tub for almost a month, and use it every night and it's still full!
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.
