Out Of Africa Lavender shea butter

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 16, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I love the original (unscented) and have used it for years, but I can't say no to lavender, and since I usually mix some into the plain anyway, I thought I'd give this a try when I ran out; I'm so glad I did. The lavender tones down the earthy smell of the shea (which, while I like it, can be overpowering when you use it every day) and makes my skin incredibly smooth. The few minor differences are as follows: -this doesn't always spread smoothly - it can clump and sometimes be hard to break that clump up (not enough that it bothers me) -it's much harder than the original, it takes more elbow grease to get a bit out onto fingertips -the safety/sanitation disk that's on top has a newer "handle" design that makes it harder to remove -this leaves me slightly greasier than the original, I have to pat off my feet before I get up to walk around This will last me a very long time, but I do plan on repurchasing.

Thanks for your feedback!

I've finally found it!

I have been searching for a good natural (physical) sunscreen that meets my criteria: doesn't feel heavy/greasy, absorbs well, no strong smell, doesn't break me out. This is it. FINALLY. I have read many reviews from many websites and hear people say it leaves a white cast or it's heavy - I haven't experienced any of those problems. For reference: I have fairly oily skin that can, at times, be blemish-prone, and am olive-toned with pink undertones. I use about a pea-sized amount and it absorbs very well and spreads evenly and smoothly (no tugging as I've also heard). It has a very slight scent at first but dissipates quickly. I cannot attest to how makeup looks/applies over it as I don't wear any, but this is finally a sunscreen I actually want to put on everyday - like you're supposed to. (I use an oil as my moisturizer, so that might make a difference in why I don't have a problem spreading this or it leaving a white cast.) This size bottle lasts me more than 2 months and I wear it everyday.

Effective & a great value, smells wonderful!

I have never had problem skin but as I've gotten older, I suffer with minor breakouts and blemishes, mostly on my forehead. (I have sensitive, normal/oily skin.) I do turn to acne/problem-skin products, and have found things that work at first, but don't always last. This was an impulse purchase and I'm sure glad I tried it! It cleared up my annoying little bumpy blemishes from my forehead in a couple days, and my skin remains clear. Very few minor hormonal breakouts, but this shortens the duration and severity. It smells wonderful (a little earthy at first, so it might be overwhelming for some) while you're using it, but dissipates as soon as you wash it off. You get the hints of lavender and other scents in there as well, but nothing is overpowering to me. The grit in it isn't too abrasive, and I have sensitive skin, so I can use this twice a day, and most days I do. This tube, while it doesn't seem that large for a face wash, will last me a long time - I only use a pea-size amount on wet skin and it spreads easily and is plenty for my whole face and neck. Plus, buying on this site is amazing - the free and VERY quick shipping can't be beat.

There are better options out there.

I'm always conscious of what I'm putting out into the environment, but I'm also on septic so I HAVE to be when it comes to toilet cleaners. This doesn't do anything at all. The smell is light and fine, but it doesn't work - even on a barely-dirty toilet. (Most certainly not for a deep clean.) I'll use up the bottle just to be rid of it, but I've found other brands that actually work and are safe.

Thanks for your feedback!

Very strong scent but light and soothing feel.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jan 22, 2018 | Verified Purchase

I came looking for a new light day cream and have been eyeing this for some time. (I like this brand already so it wasn't a totally random purchase.) As some other reviews have said, the smell is very strong. It's a fresh scent (something non-descriptive that's probably called "white tea" or "fresh cotton" or something), but very perfume-y and heavy, like a scented body lotion. Scent qualms aside, it works really well, absorbing quickly and not being heavy or greasy at all. My combo skin leans toward oily, and this is the perfect weight moisturizer. I can even use this at night if I'm feeling a little too dry, and it keeps me hydrated. Even with the scent, I would still consider repurchasing because it's the best I've found so far with the fewest questionable ingredients. A dime-sized amount covers my face and neck; I'm guessing this jar will last me at least 4 months if not longer.

Thanks for your feedback!

A great alternative for non-traditional-shampoo users...

Posted by iHerb Customer on Mar 09, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I have been "no poo" for over a year now with (mostly) positive results. I'm always on the hunt for a different shampoo bar or something of the sort, as long as it's not chemical-laden traditional shampoo. When I was nearing the end of a bar I'd been using, I thought I'd give this a shot...I'm so glad I did! It left my hair much more manageable immediately following the shampooing (not all do - some leave my hair so "squeaky" (tangled) I can hardly get my hands through it to rinse) and gorgeous and clean once it's dry. I use a conditioner about every other time, even skipping washes between that. The lather is really nice for someone who might miss it from traditional shampoos, even though that's not what gets your hair clean, and feels like a treat for me after all this time! The bar is smaller than a bar of soap, maybe about 3x2x1, but it lasts a long time. Very mild herbal smell that dissipates quickly.

Lots of room in each section.

This is a really great, roomy pill organizer. I frequently do cleanses that require many supplements, multiple times a day, and this is great for that! Not compact, as you can see (it's about 7-8" long), but it would fit in a purse or clutch if you need to take many pills with you on the go. The only weird thing about this is (and who cares for the pennies you pay for it?) the days of the week go in the opposite direction (left to right: Saturday, Friday, Thursday, etc.), on both "day" and "night" sides. Maybe mine's a misprint, since no one else mentioned that (that I saw), but it doesn't matter. 7 sections, 7 days, it's fine. I haven't had a problem with the lids opening too easily or anything falling out, but I have traveled with it and it's been fine.

Particles floating around.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 30, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I bought this at the clearance price to make multiple homemade items and use for various things, not to use as a toner. I can't use it for even these things because every one of the 4 bottles I bought were cloudy and had particles floating in them. Can't attest to function or anything else because I couldn't use it; I didn't even open a bottle to smell it.

Thanks for your feedback!
