I ordered this oil expecting no miracle. I thought that I would only use it for my body, but actually, it replaced all my care products! It doesn’t clog pores, it's lightweight, and for the whole month that I’ve been using it, I haven't used face cream nor hair spray. And I only used one eighth of the bottle.


I discovered I was allergic to something, and to find the reason, I stopped using all my creams (changed my whole line of care products) and started to use only natural products. So, I decided to use this Shea Nut Oil alone. I used to use the almond and coconut oils on my face and I don’t know whether it was due to the bad oils, or some other reasons, but I had severe acne outbreak. But nothing like that ever happens with this product.


The packaging is extremely convenient. There’s a small pump in the lid which really gives out one drop of the product!



Consistency-wise the product is very lightweight. It’s unscented. It stays on my bathroom shelf, and doesn’t become thicker.

How I use this product for my face:


Most of all, I like to apply it on my wet skin with my dry hands. In that way, I need no more than 2 drops of the product (actually 1 is also quite enough) which I rub between my palms beforehand. I let the product sink in my skin, and 5 mins later, I touch my face with the palms again, and in the end, I have beautiful, velvet skin. There’s no sticking feeling. And what’s more, the product sinks in well, and doesn't leave a mark on the pillows.

In the morning, I do the same and I noticed that my make-up applies very well. From the very beginning, I was a little bit worried about the SPF, though, there isn’t much sun outside now. I know that coconut oil has a good SPF properties, but I don’t know anything about that shea nut oil. I looked up some information on the Internet and found out that the coconut oil has the SPF 2-8, while the shea nut 3-6, not so much less!

During the day, if I use the soothing soap, I use that oil afterward and my skin calms down immediately. I can’t show you the ideal skin of my face, as only a month ago, I didn't know exactly what I was allergic to, and my skin is still not in a very good state. I don’t use any face creams, and I don’t even want to!

As for the clogging of the pores. One day, I decided to try one cream out and applied it onto my skin. I immediately had such a massive allergic reaction, as well as a breakout of pimples and acne. I started to use only that oil after, and my skin went back to its normal condition. So, I do believe that the shea nut oil doesn’t clog pores!


How I use this oil for my hair:


All my shampoos dry out and tangle my hair, so I always have to use a hairspray and hair oils. But the shea nut oil turned out to be the best: not because it’s natural, but because it doesn’t dry my hair out, but revives it!


My hair has been dyed countless amounts of times, I even lighten it, it’s dry with frayed ends, no matter how much I try to style it, it looks dim and not taken care of, which reminds me of the straw.


This is how my hair looked a month ago, when I dyed and dried it.


And using that oil, I noticed that my hair started to look better! It’s better to apply the oil only on the dry hair, once you take the towel off your head. One drop is enough for my length. I rub it in my palms, and then spread on my hair. My new shampoo dries and combs not only the ends of the hair, but also all of the length. I also can use one more drop to apply it on the hair from the ears and higher, but, that’s absolutely unnecessary.


As a result, my hair is glossy, not at all greasy, it’s easy to comb and soft to the touch!


Each time my hair looks better and better. It became thicker and better!


I know, that it’s not ideal, but for me (considering all my experiments) the result is great. The photo on the second day after the washing.

And considering the fact that my shampoo dries my hair very much and fluffs it up, I become even more delighted with the result!

Size - 118 ml, My bottle in a month of everyday use is almost full!

I ordered it on iHerb
