I'm a fan of Nubian Heritage's neat parcels of shea butter. Not too big of a size (compared to larger raw shea butters you could get), but it does last a decent amount of time. I've never had a problem melting it down and blending it into the skin. I feel like anyone who complains about the texture or stiffness doesn't know how to use shea butter. To me, what sets Nubian Heritage apart is their scents. I love them, they're confident, strong, herbaceous. I always go with African Black Soap anything but it's definitely it's own kind of African Black Soap smell. The Honey and Nigella Seed is probably my personal favorite, spicy and warm and complex. The Frankincense and Myrrh smells delicious musk to me, but someone at work asked me why I smelled like Vaseline. So, to each their own!
I can't say enough about the Nubian Heritage African Black Soap: I could write about all the ways I have found to use their products. The soap does take a drop or two and be sure to take the time to work up the most soft lather that you have ever had.The bar soap works when the liquid soap is not available. The body lotion I can't get enough of places to use this ultra soft lotion i even use on my lips at night and in the morning when I put on my make up. I have never enjoyed a body line like I do now. I've decide to give all my other body products to the women's shelter in our county. I will NEVER be with any of this product. Hint I had a real hard time getting the body lotion out of the plastic bottle. I cut the top off the plastic bottle and used a long handle spoon to dig it out into a lovely jar that now I can just pop to top off and have it on my vanity. Ladies men once you use just one of their products you will be hooked.
I received the shea butter and when I opened it, it was dried out - not at all like other shea butter lotions I have used. I'm assuming this was a fluke in the product packaging. Sadly I didn't open it till a day after the return policy. On the bright side, it smells good...
