Smith & Vandiver’s Aromatherapaes Soothing Moisture Shea Butter Cream in Neroli and Lavender ($11.99 for 6 ounces) gives quick and impressive results. Over the course of several weeks I used this product on my hands and arms during which I saw my skin was noticably softer. Another plus is that the majority of ingredients (97%) are natural and the product is certified by the Natural Product Association. My only regret is not finding out about this product during the winter when my hands are especially dry.
The Shea Butter Cream does not leave a greasy residue, unlike other body butters and shea creams I’ve used before. Instead, the cream dried quickly on my skin, which was left feeling rejuvinated. There’s a bit of lingering smell afterwards, but it doesn’t last but a few minutes. The neroli overpowers the lavender, which took awhile to adjust to. This is not a flowery smelling lotion.
The benefits of this vegan product as listed by the labeling include smoother, healthier skin as well as repair to photo damaged skin. I don’t have any sunspots or skin discoloration due to sun damage, so I was unable to observe if that claim is true. The product also claims to be stress reducing, but I didn’t experience this while using the Shea Butter Cream.
Overall, I think this product does most of what it claims to do and shows fast results. For $11.99, I think it’s a good deal considering you get 6 ounces and it’s certified natural.
