100% Unrefined Africa Organic Shea Butter

I suffer from severe dry skin and it does not really matter what season it is my lips and heels are always cracking, my skin gets white dry patches. I need to keep my skin moisturized all the time and all year round. Winters are the worst though! My arms and legs are worst and I get scaly kind of looking skin if I do not keep it deeply moisturized. The normal market available moisturizer or body lotions where not working effectively for me, I had to apply twice a day some whereas others more effective ones where really putting hole in my pocket due to expensive costs.

I was genuinely interested when I got the chance from BioFinest to try their 100% Unrefined Africa Organic Shea Butter. Now I already use shea body butter as it is very effective for dry skin types but I have never really thought of using raw shea butter in making own lotions. Now after using it for 4 weeks I am really happy that I tried this and it has not just helped me with my skin concerns but also helped in saving lot of money that I might have otherwise spent on ready to use body butter. I am now getting more into DIY kind of projects for skincare :)

The best thing about BioFinest Shea Butter is their quality, it is really very rich and creamy. I received 1 lb of raw shea butter which comes in white packet sealed at top. When you tear off the seal you will find the actual raw shea butter wrapped up in plastic. It is cream in color and easily melts if you press it in the palms of the hands. It is not too hard, melts like butter. The scent is nutty. This is very rich and creamy in quality so I only need little chunk for applying on body.

I melt a small chunk of shea butter and in container mix it with Argan Oil or Jojoba Oil (I alternate between these two oils). To it I add Lavender essential oil and Lemon/Orange essential oil to get amazing scent and benefits of essential oil.

There are two ways I apply this mix, first is over weekends on my arms, legs and feet (heels) are they are most affected areas. I rub the mixture into the areas till it is absorbed. The shea butter is really rich and high quality so you can adjust the amount you want to apply based on your skin type so that it is not too greasy for you. My dry skin soaks it up easily so I apply generously. Wait for 2-3 hours and then shower. My skin is so soft and silky after cleaning and I do not need to apply moisturizer or body lotion. at all.

The second way is during week once or twice I apply the mix overnight and wash it off next day. This gives better nourishment to the skin but all that mix can stick to clothes so I just have to toss them into laundry :) But this more effective way for my skin type.

The packaging is great so there is no worry of the product spilling even if you live in warm area. I usually keep at room temperature but if too hot I simply refrigerate and take it out couple of hours before I use.
