Beauty by Shea review + giveaway

So everyone that reads my blog, knows how I love anything raw and organic.  I got the opportunity to try another Pure, raw, organic, Shea Butter, Beauty by Shea. The owner's name is Kristen and she is wonderful.  I have spoke with her a lot, great customer service and just very nice and fun to talk to. So I received the Shea Butter pretty fast it seems. It comes in a sealed back and inside is the one pound block in like a zip lock bag. However i would rather it come in an easy open container, just my preference but it's still great the way it is.

Shea Butter Instructions For Best Use:
To be applied Topically only on Skin and Hair.

Beauty by Shea's pure raw organic Butter is imported directly from Ghana and is a natural organic moisturizer as well as a powerful healing agent for your skin.

As all Shea Butter does, it will naturally soften and melt in the heat, if this happens, just simply put it in the fridge for 30 to 60 minutes until sold again.
( hasn't happened to me but I keep it in a cool place, in my bathroom closet)

With this Shea Butter, a little goes a very long way. To use it simply take a small amount, like the size of a dime or nickel to start, and allow it to soften and melt in the palms of you hand. Additionally,  rubbing your palms together to soften the Shea Butter is a perfect way to soften the Shea and ready it for application. Once it's smooth and creamy, apply to the desired area.

As you continue to use it you will be able to determine how much you need, but always start with a little and allow it to soften/melt in your palms and then spread it on the desired area.

Can also be used as an important ingredient in handmade soaps, lotions, and conditioners.

Allergy Warning: Shea Butter is deprived from the Shea nut, a tree nut. Those with allergies should NOT use this product.

Now, with that being said, I have used handmade Shea Butter soap before.  I buy it locally from a lady that makes it. I have to say that Shea Butter hand soap is my favorite soap to use. I am gonna start making my own now that i have it. You can find different recipe's online if anyone might be interested in making their own. It's quite easy from what I can see.

My brother has horrible Eczema Skin and Psoriasis on his hands and feet. He has had if for about 15 years or more and it gets so bad that his hands actually split open and you can see the hide inside. He is constantly using lotions, taking medicines and prescription creams. I gave him a little bit of this Shea Butter to see if it would help his skin so I could prove it works for Eczema and Psoriasis.  I am happy to say yes it does. My brother has one of the worst cases probably that i have ever see. I really feel sorry for him with his condition.  He has been using it daily and he said after the first application he noticed a tremendous difference.  He also said that it works just as good if not better than any prescription cream he has ever used and is much cheaper. I don't know if it will cure it or not, will just have to see but it has really made a difference in his life and he absolutely loves it.

The one good thing about this Shea Butter is it doesn't make my skin feeling oily.  It just makes it feel soft and smooth.  This Shea Butter is high quality and good stuff. I have tried several brands before and this one seems to be very effective.  It also has somewhat of a small odor. It doesn't stink but it doesn't smell great. If it had a nice smell then that's how you know it's not real pure and raw.

Does Mosquitoes eat you up? They don't me, but they love my daughter.  She can't go outside at night, unless she attacked by them. I have been using this Shea Butter on her Mosquito bites an it seems to be more effective than anything I have tried such as calamine lotion and ever pure coconut oil.

So that about wraps it up. This is a fine quality Shea Butter. It's very effective.
You can order yours now,   here from Amazon. For just 10 bucks. It is actually a great price for the quality you get and is cheaper than most brands. If you have Amazon Prime,  you can get it to you in 2 days.


Also this Shea Butter is unrefined.  So it hasn't been chemically processed and it's more effective at its natural state.
Naturally rich in vitamins,  such as vitamins A, E, F, and K
