To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is an incredibly effective anti-inflammatory cream. I have bad rheumatoid arthritis and this works almost as well as Voltaren (a prescription anti-inflammatory gel) on my swollen knuckle and reconstructed wrist (I had surgery because of joint degeneration). One thing, though, that was a little bit of an issue for a while: 2 out of the last 3 times I ordered it, it was grainy and seemingly dried out when it arrived. After being angry about this for a long time, I discovered how to deal with the issue: microwaving the product until the sand-like particles melt. I then apply the warmed-up product to my arthritic hands and it is even better warmed-up for arthritis. Highly recommend it.
I have this in lotion form,and love the lotion!(😒Packaging could be better. To thick to be called a lotion,more like a cream. Should be in a jar instead) I have very dry skin@times,especially in the winter.I love this product! I also have the soap and love it also! Scent is natural smelling,isn't over powering,very nice! A must have in my household. Only problem is, I was sent a jar that expired in May. I ordered in August. Product being expired is only reason I give 4 stars, instead of 5.
I agree with the other reviewers that this product is grainy to the point of being difficult to use. However, the smell is so wonderful, warm and earthy, that I decided to try what one reviewer suggested: heating the butter and mixing it to dissolve the granules and improve the consistency. So, I tried that and it worked! The resulting butter is smooth and spreadable. I scooped mine into a small mason jar, nuked it in the microwave for maybe a minute, stirred it up until the beads weren't visible anymore, let it cool overnight, and put it back in its original container. Just beware-- you do need to change containers because the one it comes in must have something metallic in the label-- started sparking in the microwave. Anyway, if you like the smell as I did and don't want to waste the butter, try this.
Wasn't sure if I was going to like this scent but I LOVE it!!! When I opened it, the butter was grainy but luckily I know that this happens due to temperature and I know the trick to fix it. Here it is: melt the butter in the microwave until it is oil consistency, pour it back in the container and stuck it right in the freezer. The faster it solidifies the better and it'll be back to what it's supposed to be. I love Nubian Heritage products and all the scents aren't available in stores so glad that Amazon has them. My skin is pretty dry and this stuff makes it nice and soft.
If I could leave zero I would. This product is so old it is powdered and stale. Shea butter is not a powder! I am furious. The item is not eligible for return even though the product is complete crap and expired.
i found that in one week, if applied nightly, this cream did more to soften my heels and rid myself of that tough skin, than anything else i have found. i do make sure i keep up with the other processes as well. i put a stopper in the shower several times a week so that my feet get thoroughly saturated as i shower, which helps to soften that skin for abrasion. i am not a fan of coconut in any way shape or form, but found this to be a minor part of the overall scent. in fact, it smells good enough to eat. you do not need a lot of this product so it should last for a while.
The last few times I have ordered this have not gone well. The product is grainy and beads on the skin, rather than actually absorbing. It also smells rancid. I will not be purchasing again from any company distributing this product. It used to be my favorite moisturizer but is now a consistent disappointment, and a waste of money. Buyer beware!
it came unsealed and it's not a butter or cream-like consistency. It was clumpy and smelled like it had gone "bad", almost rancid smelling. I asked for a refund as I cannot use this product, something is wrong with it. Disappointed :(
I just love this smells very good at first it was a little hard to put on but if you put a little in your palm and rub your palms together it gets a little easier to put on her use it at night and use it during the day I have a cleaning business and my hands get very very dry this works like a gem
