I am a Florida girl, and I love going barefoot. But the older I get, the more I find that my feet don’t love being barefoot. My feet tend to crack easily, and I have to keep them scrubbed and moisturized daily–in the summer, multiple times daily–to keep them looking their best.
When I was offered Viva Naturals organic shea butter for free for my honest review, I gladly accepted it. It arrived last week, and I have been using it since then. I have found that while it is greasy upon application, it absorbs fairly well and does a good job at keeping my feet smooth. Since we are currently in the middle of summer, I swim in the pool with my little one every day and use this lotion afterward before putting on a pair of thick socks. I try to put another coat of this shea butter on each evening and put socks back on for a while. (Well, before I rip them off because I cannot stand wearing socks at night!)
I have ordered shea butter previously for lotions for my preschooler after she was born. I prefer this shea butter to the butters I used in the past. It is creamy and not gritty and has a nice scent. In fact, I intend to buy more and to use it to make all those beauty recipes I have pinned on Pinterest.

Have you ever used shea butter rather than a “typical” lotion? Or do you use it to make your own lotions?
