Shea Butter DXB & Benefits

I am a huge fan of beauty products that are natural. Most drugstore or even luxury brands claim to contain more natural ingredients but actual content of in terms of percentage is found to be lower.
If you are someone like me who loves natural products then this product is certainly for you.
Shea Butter DXB offers Shea butter straight from West Africa! Packed in a beautiful glass jar this product is one of most interesting natural products I have tried.
What is Shea butter? ivory colored butter is basically fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. As its refined it gets the ivory/whitish color.

Texture: It is exactly like butter but a off white-ish color. Consistency is that of a petroleum jelly and once in contact with heat of you palms this will melt which makes it easier to apply.
Application: Just like your regular lotions except here you need to scoop out a smaller quantity to begin with.
Results:
I have been using this for a month now and I have noticed massive difference in my skin. It feels more hydrated and the product leaves a healthy sheen on the skin. I wouldn’t advise it to wear during humid days but this can be a great add to your night skincare routine. If you are situated in a colder region then this can substitute your day cream as well.
Benefits of Shea Butter
–  Helps in getting rid of sunburns
– Moisturises and hydrates skin
– Reduces stretch marks
– Can substitute as a makeup base & lip balm
– Helps strengthening cuticles
The only thing I found a bit strange was the fragrance of this product. Since its  au naturale there is no added fragrance to it. At the beginning I was a bit turned off but the results within a week encouraged me to continue application. I have a dry sensitive skin and this works fine for me.

My Review

Firstly the fragrance is fabulous! Its sweet and almost like I have opened a jar of dessert! Its sweet, its sticky and thick liquid in terms of texture. I almost wanted to lick it..hehe. There is a generous portion of saffron in the product and it is well visible. Picked out a strand and I could whiff the sweet scents that perfumed the entire jar. Its in the purest form, beautiful and vibrant.

Just a generous teaspoon, yes! A teaspoon was enough to cover my face and neck part.The product is runny so its easier to apply and remove. Even after 20 minutes It does not dry out, after washing the face I started seeing difference immediately. My skin felt soft, supple and refreshed. Though I dint find anything to scrub on, as the product claims its an exfoliator as well. I just gently massaged the product on the face and prayed for miracles.

Mirror mirror on the wall.. did the mask work at all?

Prior use I had terrible acne due to allergic reaction to a medicine. The acne dried out but I had a tough time getting rid of the marks. Post use of this face mask, the marks have started disappearing. I noticed the change after the second use. Also to add, I did not experiment using any other creams/masks throughout the process just to get a clear perspective on the product. A clean, bright and healthy skin is what I have right now!

Even though the ingredients are just three, these are way powerful than any other chemicals. The results are obviously not immediate because these are in their purest form. No play with the contents, no parebens, colors, fragrance or preservatives. The product is safe to use on any skin type. Mine being an extra sensitive one didn’t have any side effects on them.

Usage recommended: Once in a week.
