The Body Shop is one of my favorite stores! I have so many favorites (Satsuma is my all time fave!) and the Shea Butter line is a new one to add to my faves for sure. I got these on my 40th birthday from my sweet German friend Antje! Thanks again Antje! ;-)The Body Shop (though owned by Loreal) is a cruelty free brand that also prides itself by using Community Fair Trade ingredients.
I have used unrefined Shea Butter before and know that naturally Shea Butter does actually not smell good (it smells actually rancid lol), so I am happy The Body Shop added some fragrance to it and made it smell like a dream.
The Shea Body Butter smells divine and is a rich, heavy cream with Vitamin A and E, that moisturizes my body like a dream.
The Shea Hand Cream is a very light weight lotion that won´t make your hands feel greasy or sticky- however if you have serious dry skin this one might not do the trick. Because the tube is so tiny (1 oz) it is very convenient on the go to throw in your purse.
Little tip: I also always manage to get me some great deals at Marshall´s or TJ Maxx for The Body Shop, so keep your eyes open for those. ;-)
