USER REVIEWS: Deluxe Shea Butter

Shea butter is becoming an integral ingredient in many skin care products but you can also use Shea butter on its own.

Deluxe Shea Butter is a product that is 100% pure, certified organic, unrefined natural Shea butter. The company supplies Shea butter in a wide range of sizes to cater for those who want to use it personally right up to large manufacturers. Deluxe Shea Butter is made in Ghana, West Africa and imported to Adelaide.

The Shea butter is picked and processed by a certified organic producer who works closely with the women who pick and process the shea nuts, they source directly from women’s co-operatives helping to support the communities of their heritage.


Shea Butter is used in all sorts of beauty products because the list of its benefits is long. It helps with skin, muscle, hair, nails, scar tissue and inflammation so it’s versatility is almost limitless.

I have been using Deluxe Shea Butter for a couple of weeks now and I must say that I’m impressed. I suffer from terminally cracked skin on my feet, dry elbows, and very dry hands.

It’s still Summer, and that means that my feet are suffering more than usual, so I have been making an effort to moisturise them every morning. I apply Deluxe Shea Butter before I put my socks on and then don’t think about them again. I have also tried to do my elbows and hands at the same time but in the morning school rush things sometimes get a little crazy.

My feet are still a little dry but the cracks are certainly diminishing and they don’t feel anywhere near as bad as they once were. They are starting to feel soft and no longer scratchy which is a monumental improvement. My elbows have lost the dryness and are no longer discoloured. Then, there are my hands, which are looking much more supple and I can no longer lament the state of them.

Deluxe Shea Butter is simple to use and cost-effective; it’s 100% pure and certified organic and the company pride themselves on their fair trade practices. There are no nasties; actually, there are no additives AT ALL! You want Shea Butter, that’s what you get… and it’s all you get. No fragrances, no chunks, no preservatives – just Shea butter.

Deluxe Shea Butter is naturally fragranced by the pleasant and subtle scent of shea nuts. There is no animal testing and the product is completely ethically sourced.

There is so much to love about this product and so much to use it for. The one thing I really wanted to try it out on is my son’s eczema because he gets little patches that he then scratches and picks but we haven’t got anything on him this week. I will be trying it on him soon though.

The uses for this magic little product are endless and I am definitely going to be checking it out for more of them. Some of the benefits are:

  • Helps to prevent skin ageing
  • Powerful antioxidant helping to smooth wrinkles, scars and other skin imperfections
  • Treats stretch marks and prevents cracking of breast skin
  • Effectively treats nappy rash, relieves redness and protects the skin from wetness
  • Provides elasticity to skin and softens callouses
  • Promotes recovery in muscle injuries and works as an anti-inflammatory
  • Protects hair from sun damage
  • Anti-irritant and can treat redness, rashes, and insect bites
  • Great facial moisturiser which even works for oily skin and doesn’t cause acne
  • Effective treatment for psoriasis and eczema
  • Fantastic for massage on adults and children

This is definitely a product worth trying out and I will be recommending it to everyone. I love the effect it has had on my skin and I plan to try it for eczema and nappy rash next.

  1. I have nothing but good things to say about this body butter. I have a newborn, psoriasis and dry skin!!! so getting picked to do this review was so exciting. This product definitely is one I’ll be using a lot and getting a run for its money. It’s so versatile. I can use it for nappy rash, cracked nipples, dry skin, psoriasis, on the kids dry knees and my disgusting cracked heels. The texture is thick and doesn’t absorb straight away like most body butters but is great for putting much needed moisture back in the skin and works well.
    I love that it has no nasties and is so natural.
    Thanks for the fav review xx

  2. I was so lucky to be picked for this amazing product. I have nothing but high recommendations for this body butter.
    My husband used it on his dry and cracked hands as he is a panel beater , also used it on his knees as his knees get super dry and they crack from kneeling on them all the time and the results were amazing his hands felt so soft and not like sand paper 🙂 his knees improved as well.
    I also used this on my son when he had a slight nappy rash and it was gone by the morning.
    My husband also used it to massage my lower back as i get back pains and it helped with the pain , it is such a beautiful massage ointment to use as
    I was left feeling extra soft and my skin didnt react, as i also have very sensitive skin.

    I will be buying this product that’s for sure.

  3. I am very much enjoying using this Deluxe Shea Butter. The body butter itself has a very subtle, nutty scent. I like the thick consistency of the product, which makes it great for dry skin. It is really nourishing and moisturising on the skin. I have also been using it on stretch marks and looking forward to seeing the difference in my skin.

    I am also considering using it as a moisturiser for my baby, due to the fact that it is made from natural ingredients. I love that it is organic and fair-trade, as it makes me feel a lot better for using it. The product also came in a decent size pot, which is great, as I get to see a real difference in my skin.

    Thank you to Deluxe Shea Butter and Beauty and Lace for being able to test out this lovely product.

  4. Thanks so much to Deluxe Shea Butter and Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to review this product
    I was so excited to receive this little jar. I’m currently undergoing chemo and my skin is very dry and itchy
    Just a little Shea butter goes a long way. You have to massage it in. The texture and smell are heavenly. It’s heavier than s lot of moisturizers. The trick is to use a tiny amount and massage it right in
    I used it on my hands including my cuticles, on rough heels, as a lip balm and all over my body. My favourite use was on my scalp. I had lost all my hair but is now growing back. I massage the Shea cream into my scalp and it helps with any dry scalp and leaves what hair I do have feeling nice. I have no proof but think that massaging and conditioning the scalp may be helping my hair grow back
    One big plus is that there are no nasties in the cream. I caught my naughty kitten having a lick. Can’t blame her, it smells so good. A big relief that this would not have harmed her
    I’ll certainly be looking out for another jar when this one finishes

  5. I am loving the Shea Butter so much that my hands, nails and arms are really benefiting from twice daily applications. I am also now applying it to my neck and upper chest which is exposed to the elements. It’s such a lovely product that it appears to work into my skin without going immediately dry. I have age spots, freckles, scars from surgery and my skin of late has been dry from fibromyalgia. Shea Butter has proven to be a product I can keep using and continue to see results.
    Can I say I love this product!
    Thankyou for allowing me to trial Shea Butter. We will have a lovely relationship! ☺️

  6. Thanks BeautyandLace for the opportunity to trial the Deluxe Shea Butter 100g. I’m always keen to try organic and natural products because we have two young kids with sensitive skin in our household and knowing that it’s pure and natural with no nasties is a huge tick.

    To be honest I was surprised with the texture, I expected a lighter buttery feel but this is quite thick, almost waxy in appearance. But once scooped out and warmed in the palm of my hands, it melted and was easy to rub in. It does leave a protective layer on application, but it doesn’t feel too sticky or greasy.

    My poor daughter came down with a bit of itchy rash, her skin felt quite rough and just a little rubbed into the itchy patches gave her some relief and comfort.
    I’ve also used it as a lip balm and it’s very works very well to soothe chapped dry lips. I’m enjoying the natural chocolatey, nutty scent, it’s quite pleasant.

    I think this is going to be a very versatile product as it’s very soothing to irritated skin, it nourishes and protects and handy for minor skin abrasions. My son also has had a bit of a sniffle and the constant nose blowing has left his nose all red and sore and it’s helped soothe the red irritated skin.
    It works well as a heel balm for dry cracked heels, as a cuticle treatment and to moisturise the dry rough patches on my knees and elbows too!

    The next time I finish a lipstick and there’s that tiny bit at the base of tube, I’m going to DIY my own lip gloss/balm. I think a little bit of this Deluxe Shea butter mixed with the lipstick would make a great tinted lip balm.
    Thanks again BeautyandLace, Ive discovered a new little treasure!

  7. Well this is definitely a surprise in a tub! I didn’t have any high hopes for this product before I got it sent to me as I was thinking of all the cheap and not so pure shea butters out there on the market.
    Boy was I way of mark with this Shea Butter as I suffer sensitive, dry skin and eczema that worsens during the heat and this product has given me instant relief from dry skin so I don’t want to scratch it and make it worse.
    I love how long this product is lasting and is a great price to pay for relief as sufferers would know. I wish this product was around when my kids were babies as it would have been a lifesaver and a way better smell than covital cream! hehe!
    I also used it all over my face and neck at night time and it seemed to soak in quite well and also great for dry lips especially during the day. I also rubbed a tiny bit through my palms and scrunched through my hair ends and to tame my fluffy flyaway strands which made them sit better and didn’t at all weigh down or make my hair oily looking. Also for my old looking gardening hands it instantly improves their look and feel.
    Thank for putting me onto a very special product as I am now VERY convinced as this has already changed my life and to be such a versatile product screams BONUS and great VALUE.
    Am so loving my pure Shea Butter XO

  8. This deluxe shea butter is like a little pot of goodness. It’s a versatile cream that can be used to soothe irritations, provide a healing balm for cracked skin or just as a nice all-round moisturiser.

    The texture is quite thick and I’ve found that a little goes a long way. It’s got a slight nutty fragrance and it’s been an absolute joy to realise that your skin is getting a wide array of benefits but none of the hidden nasties (thanks to its being organic and 100% unrefined shea butter.)

    Add this one to your trolley, you will not be disappointed. 😀

  9. This product really is fabulous!!! Its not like the Shea Butter I knew as it is 100 % natural and is going to last me for ages.
    I have very dry skin and suffer from eczema especially worse during this hot weather we are having and it has really worked on relieving my symptoms and me not having to scratch my skin as much which is stopping flare ups.
    I am truly happy with this Shea Butter and would recommend anyone with dry skin to give it a go as it has no nasties in it as I am also sensitive to certain products so I know what it is like having issues with your skin.
    I think the price of this is also very affordable as it is going to last me so much longer than just a cream would as it is like a bees wax texture and softens when you rub it between fingers.
    I also used it for my dry lips and use it at night on my face and neck before going to bed so it works its magic.
    Thanks so much for letting me try this Shea Butter as I never knew there was anything like this out there and now will be buying it in the future.
    Am loving this product so much XO

  10. This Shea butter is nothing like I thought as it is 100%pure and so good for my dry skin.
    I love it and didn’t know there was a product like this out there as I thought shea butter was like a cream but obviously this one’s top notch and being free of any nasties my skin is relishing in its natural conditioning properties.
    I use it on my face and neck before I go to bed and also my dry lips and eczema prone skin which gets worse in this hotter weather lately. It helps relieve my itchy skin and it doesn’t get as inflamed as it used to. I am really loving this product and the price is just as good because it is a bit like a bee’s wax texture and will last me longer than other products I have tried because a little goes a long way. Thanks for putting me onto this product as I would highly recommend anyone with dry skin to use this product as it has good results.
    I also rub a tiny bit between my fingers and use it to tame my fluffy ends of hair as well as tame flyaways.
    Thanks again as it’s good to test something but even better when you are so happy with it and it doesn’t disappoint.

  11. I was really impressed with the effectiveness of the Deluxe Shea Butter – it doesn’t provide an instant fix, but with a week of consistent use, you start to see a real difference.

    I used this first on myself, on my very dry skin, on legs, elbows and hands. It feels lovely going on, nice and silky, and absorbs well, though it’s heavy, so takes a few minutes. There’s such a subtle scent it’s almost un-noticeable – great if you’re going to use a perfume. After about a week I started noticing a real difference in my skin – it felt softer, better hydrated, and the bits that crack were reducing.

    I also tried it on my little girl’s eczema. This comes and goes, so it’s hard to attribute any one thing to fixing it. However, it seemed to disappear faster when we were using this, and hasn’t flared up as badly again either. She said she liked it too, although to be honest, she isn’t very discriminating yet!

    The one thing that was a bit tricky is that this is a semi-solid product, which you melt in your hands for use. That was easy enough, but I found getting it out of the tub without getting it under my fingernails a touch tricky. A dinky spatula or plastic spoon solved this very minor issue.

    I’d recommend this. It’s a product with no additives – very natural – which is something I look for. It was very effective on my skin, and seemed to make a difference to my daughter’s eczema. I have nothing bad to say about it either; there were no downsides that I experienced.

  12. I have been trialling this body butter since I received it. I have terribly cracked feet and also very very dry skin owing to an operation I had. What I love about this body butter is its wonderful hydrating properties. My skin has improved greatly .

    I got my husband to try it as he has Atypical dermatitis. He was very impressed also. I love the fact that there are no chemicals and it is completely natural. We have far too many chemicals in beauty products and this one is different and that as well as how my skin sucks up this body butter and I can visibly feel and see the positive effects in my skin is why I loved it so much and would highly recommend this product.

  13. I had never used Shea Butter before but always been intrigued so was excited to give it a go so was happy to receive this product to trial.

    I love that it is completely 100% pure and natural and organic, over the past few years I have moved more towards natural and organic products and no animal testing.

    I used it for my shoulder which often pains after a long day sitting in front of the computer. It seemed to ease the pain quickly and provide some short term relief and because it is a nice handy size to throw in your handbag and take with you wherever you go, I always had it on hand to use. It has a very bland smell so there was no worries of putting it on and having a horrible smell from it.

    I also used it on my legs as a moisturiser but ended up placing it on before bed as I felt it a little bit to sticky to wear during the day especially if you have shorts or a skirt on and if it was hot. I found it felt like it was “melting” on your legs. After using it each night I did however find it did make a considerable difference to the softness and moisture in my skin though. I found my legs were no-where near as dry even when hoping out of the shower the following morning they still looked moisturised, whereas before using the shea butter they would look dry after showering. (Note. I did continue to use my normal daily moisturiser during the day)

    I am applying it on some stretch marks but haven’t noticed a difference yet but have only been using it for a short time. When my son gets bitten by mozzies he swells and has large red lumps, I am keen to use this on them next time he gets one.

    It is something I would consider continuing to purchase as it is easy to use and has many benefits to it and it very reasonably priced for all sizes.

  14. Thank you for sending me the Deluxe Shea Butter. I say thank you because I suffer from psoriasis on my hands and in between my fingers and after using the shea butter, I found the itching, redness and dryness decreased dramatically.
    The butter takes a little while to absorb into your skin but I feel that helped with the healing process with my psoriasis.
    There is a slight nutty scent which is very pleasant.
    It’s a great size to keep in your handbag and perfect size for travel.
    I also used the butter on my feet and heels and found it relieve dryness much better than feet creams.
    This is perfect for anyone with allergies and I would certainly use it on babies and young children. I even used it on my dog’s belly where he suffers from itching and redness due to sensitive skin knowing that if he licked it off, it would not harm him.
    I definitely recommend this product and will continue to use it.

  15. A miraculous product from a very unassuming pack!! I was stunned at how fast this product completely transformed dry cracked skin areas and kept them looking healthy and moisturized ! I found that just massaging it a bit between your hands before applying helps it to effortlessly melt into your skin leaving it with a gentle natural fragrance.
    I was so impressed that tried it on a patch of my daughters eczema and it improved overnight!! So now using it regularly for her as well. Also my husband had a bad bruise on his finger at the joint that was taking awhile to heal I applied a touch of the product there and it stopped cracking and healed cleanly within 3 days.
    I’m so very very happy I got to discover and trial this product from Beauty and Lace!! I would not have just purchased the product over the counter if I had seen it in store though I have used products that advertized that they contain shea butter… this really is the real deal!! All natural shea butter with no additives and locally sourced. Now I understand what the shea butter fuss is all about. Highly recommend this product!

  16. I am absolutely loving the deluxe shea butter product.

    I suffer from very dry skin all year round. I have a form of dermatitis on my feet which causes them to break out in dry patches all the time. Since using the shea butter my feet are having less dry patches and my legs are so soft.

    The product is a bit solid but applying a bit to your hands and massaging it, it transforms into an oil that then applies brilliantly to the skin.

    The only negative i have to say was the scent. I couldn’t get my head around the smell that it left on my skin after a while. When first applying the product it smelled like chocolate or cocoa powder then it transformed into something that wasn’t very appealing but i definitely worked past that because the benefits and results i have received are amazing.

  17. Lovely product. Natural smell. I used it a little bit differently to the other reviewers here by using it as a massage oil. One of the benefits listed is that it has anti-inflammatory properties. Having a constantly sore neck and shoulder I’ve found slight relief (maybe it’s only because I’m massaging it every night I’m not sure).My only word of warning to anyone considering trying this product is that it is very oily and doesn’t sink into skin very quickly. So don’t use it before getting dressed or before bed if you don’t want it all over your clothes/linen.

  18. I was really excited to be chosen for this trial. Ive never used shea butter before, Ive only seen “with added shea butter” on other products.

    Funnily enough it arrived on the day that I had scratched my back in my sleep until it was raw (I have eczema on my back) and pulled a muscle in my butt in my sleep. So I was so excited to see if it would help both the dry and sore skin and the muscle aches

    I was surprised when it arrived to open the container up and see a bees wax like consistency- I honesty thought it would be more like a cream. Supringly though a little goes a long way because it doesn’t absorb into the skin super quick you have time to massage it in and “spread it around”

    Almost instantly my sore skin stopped itching/burning and within a few days I was back to how it was before

    The muscle in the butt hurt a lot less the next day too. Im really surprised on this one I didn’t think it would help as I didn’t “feel” anything happening like you do with deep heat etc.

    All up I was very happy and grateful that I got a chance to try this product, I didn’t think of putting it on my lips or face like some others have so Ill give that a go next!

  19. Thank you Beauty and Lace and Deluxe Shea Butter for the opportunity to review this product.

    For one who has very dry skin I am impressed.

    The consistency of the product somewhat reminds me of beeswax. And saying that, it is very very difficult to spread over your skin. I can realise why it has this consistency, as I can suppose it is meant to be applied in a deep lather, but for those who want to apply it as a moisturiser, it is a difficult product to spread. It is therefore not a product you could use as an over all body moisturiser.

    However if you require a product for a targetted area of your body, me the face and neck, knees and feet, I loved it. It gave relief to my daughter’s eczema but didn’t do anything to improve it.

    I would continue to use the product as I have been doing – at night on my face and around my eye area. I find it penetrates deeply and softens your lines. It does take a while to penetrate though so I wouldn’t use it on the body – it would leave greasy marks on your clothing.

    A good product but recommended for use on small targetted areas of the body.

  20. I loved that Deluxe Shea Butter is 100% organic and unrefined with no added perfumes or softeners making it perfect for sensitive skin.
    As it has no softeners it is quite solid in the jar so a skin care spatula would be a good investment. To use, remove required amount from jar, rub in the palm of your hands untill butter melts then apply to skin.
    I found it hard to use on my face but great to apply to elbows, fingernails, backs of hands and heels. Soothes and softens rough dry skin.
    The Deluxe Shea Butter website is a wealth of information concerning product range, fair trade practices, sourcing of ingredients and their uses.
    Prices are very reasonable with the 100gm jar pricedat $14.30. They also have well priced gift packs and online ordering available. After perusing the online store I am very keen to try the Shea butter soap.
    Deluxe Shea Butter is an Australian owned and based company with ingredients sourced and processed in Ghana, West Africa.

  21. I was thrilled to receive my Delux Shea Butter to trial.
    It arrived in a 100 gram screw top pack, and has a nutty smell.
    I do a lot of knitting, and I found this Shea Butter perfect to rub into my fingers to keep them smooth. It isn’t greasy, so doesn’t coat the yarn as I knit.
    I’ve also tried it on my cracked feet, and it is restoring them also.
    The anti-inflammatory properties may help my knee pain too.
    I am impressed with the success of this Product, and I am delighted to read that it is 100% pure organic, unrefined Shea Butter. It has a long shelf life too, with a best before date of December 2019 (there won’t be any left well before that!)

    Thank you Beauty & Lace for the chance to fall in love with this great product.
