Let's Patch Test This Butter

For me, I decided to apply some of the butter on some dry itchy parts of my legs, sometimes they drive me crazy how much they itch. So much so, I can make them bleed. But thankfully, for these parts of my legs I have refrained from scratching and I was only too eager to apply the butter. Shea by Nature recommends that you do a patch test on your skin before using the product freely, after 24 hours or so there were no irritations and so I applied liberally to my eczema. The formulation of the butter is rich, creamy and very nourishing, in comparison to some moisturisers I have used. I love how quickly this absorbs straight into the skin, leaving no residue and no oily feeling on the hands. There is a very faint aroma which comes from the natural products included rather than a chemical fragrance. I cannot believe how much this has helped my skin, I am not just saying this but it's made a huge difference. 

I would most definitely recommend this product. It has left my skin feeling super soft, without causing irritation or redness. A bonus for those who have dry and sensitive skin. It has really help my skin condition and I shall continue to use it for hear on out. My husband works as an engineer and has very dry hands and after a couple of uses, his hands are super soft and supple. I have also tried this on my daughter too, she had a few dry patches on her face and in a matter of days they were completely gone. This Sheaqueous cream is a product that is suitable for all the family, no matter what age they are. A product that you should definitely try...
