Shea butter creams are wonderful. They are especially great now that it's freezing cold and the air is so dry. My skin is sensitive to cold and wind, and shea butter cream just sinks right into it and makes me feel so much better. Like the article said, I put it on after showering and my skin soaks it up.
It's great for my hands as well as my legs, which really suffer in very cold weather. The skin gets ashy looking and shea butter cream gives pretty much instant results. I wouldn't make it through the winter without it!
