Skin Care Review: Mosaic Emporium shea butter

by Cherie Rogers, Clifton, TX


Good moisturizer; decreased excess hair growth on chin.

Must be worked with a bit to make it easier to apply.

I am 57 years old and have used Retin-A for years. I wanted a good moistuizer to combat the drying effect of the Retin-A. After reading about the excellent moisturizing properties of shea butter, I did more research online and found a company that sells 100% certified (by the American Shea Butter Institute)raw shea butter.

Many other products contain shea butter mixed with other ingredients OR the 100% shea butter has been refined and may contain far less of its original beneficial properties. I found this product to be a very good moisturizer, but best of all it has dramatically reduced chin hair growth. After only two weeks use I noticed I no longer needed to tweeze every night. I am able to go a week without plucking and it seems the number of hairs are diminishing. I don't know if this is a common side effect or not as I don't know anyone else who uses this product, but I am thrilled with it.

Shea butter is a terrific moisturizer for dry cracking skin on your feet and elsewhere on your body. I have also read that it is excellent for those suffering from ecezema.

I highly recommend this product.
