    Customer service means a lot to me but when it’s coupled with a great product it’s win win. I had recently given up trying to find Palmers Shae Butter and have been going back and forth trying to find something that will work on my very dry skin. So far with now much luck.
    I’m so happy I couldn’t find Palmers anymore because it lead me to see what was available online and this is way better. With most lotions my skin will be dry in an hour or two. With body butters I will get a few more hours. So, as a test I put this on before bed and by the next afternoon I was still moisturized. I couldn’t believe it.
    I took a chance and ordered two of these on my first order because of the reviews. I’m so happy I did.

    Delicious! I’m newly pregnant and have been using the shea butter straight, on a friend’s recommendation, but the included recipes look great too. Here’s hoping this first pregnancy a zero stretch mark one!

    So, I’m normally extremely, well, cheap, with the ingredients I buy for my beauty product projects.I’m more of the old school French cuisine theory where even the lowliest ingredient can be elevated by good technique, or something. I was looking for shea butter for a hand balm and almost bought one of the other first page search results that was far far less expensive. Then I read its reviews and it sounded awful. In an uncharacteristic fit of excess I sprang for this one instead and ohhhh my gods above and below, it’s heavenly. It’s like frosting. I wanted to eat it with a spoon. It’s worth every penny and then some. If you were waffling at all on buying this brand or not, waffle no further, it’s great
