I wanted to wait a couple of weeks after receiving this product to make a review on it. I am very accustomed to purchasing high end body moisturizers from a well know French cosmetic company. I've been well pleased with the moisturisers, too. However the cost was double the cost of the Shea Butter and there was only about 1/4 the product. After these two weeks I have used the Shea butter on my son and on myself. (My son is seven). My son had a mild sunburn on his shoulders and also a few mosquito bits. The pain of both seemed to relieved by the Shea butter. He did not peel from the burn either. As for myself, it appears to have prevented problems that I have from shaving and waxing. Therefore there has been no ingrown hairs or razor burn. It seems to have really helped with my heels, too. My son and I are both very fair skinned blonds. Although it doesn't have the glamorous appearance or aroma of the French cosmetics, it seems to moisturize and heal our skin much better. I cannot detect the "nutty" scent that others have described in previous reviews. If there is a mild scent to it, it must dissipate pretty rapidly as I know is not clashing with my perfumes. The packaging and the appearance of this stuff is odd, but I think that I can overcome it due to the benefits that we have received from this product in a very short time. I will purchase this again.

I was surprised when I received this. It comes in a tupperwear container! :( But inside, the quality was great. This is a solid block, easier to work with if you take a smaller amount and put it into a more portable container. I even took a small nivea tin and carry that around with me - the head of my normal activities make it easier to work with, so that the butter literally melts uppon contact with your skin. Otherwise, you need to rub it between your hands in order to apply this to your skin - which can be a little bit of a **** when it comes to applying daily after bathing. As far as how the product works, as expected, its an excellent moisturizer. I've even found that within 2 weeks, it reduced my mild to moderate psoriasis by 90% (it never made it 100% disappear). On the body, the moisture lasts all day, you can still feel the suppleness 18 hours later. I love it and will repurchase - though I did notice that the YELLOW is (1) softer and (2) seems to moisturize better. After reading that REAL unrefined shea butter will be yellow, I wonder how this is white, and if the color has anything to do with how the product works. I won't buy the white one again.
