I'm not usually a big fan of shea butter. I find it very fatty and isn't absorbed well. But thankfully Real Bodycare sent me a sample of their creams* and I'm in love.
The creams come in three varieties: Hemp & Shea, Rosehip & Shea and Apricot & Shea
Hemp & Shea is suitable for those with very dry or inflamed skin, including eczema. I've been using this on the soles of my feet and on my knees, which get very dry. The cream is absorbed really quickly so I don't have to sit and wait around. It just shows how thirsty my skin is! It got rid of any flakes and softened my heels but if you have any hard skin then I'd recommend that you buff your skin for quicker results.
Rosehip & Shea is full of anti-oxidants and helps rejuvinate the skin. Great for wrinkles and scars! I don't have ageing skin (thankfully) so I've been testing this out on stretchmarks as I've heard that rosehip oil is great for that. Stretchmarks don't go away overnight but I'm hoping that they will fade overtime.
Apricot & Shea is moisturising but also balances oily skin. I have crazy combination skin on my face so I've been using this on dry patches, especially around my nose. It is quickly absorbed so it doesn't leave me with a shiny face or give me blemishes.
One of my favourite thing about these creams is the lovely mousse-like texture. It really does remind me of white chocolate mousse. Once applied onto the skin, it melts instantly and it is so easy to spread around the skin. But spread quickly because it is very easily absorbed into the skin. And I'm talking seconds!
The creams come in three sizes: 10ml, 50ml and 100ml. If you'd like to try them all they do all three travel sized pots for £9.
