Shea butter is one of my favorite moisturizing products. I feel like everything with shea in it just works so well! When I was given a chance to try the Out of Africa Shea Butter Body Oil in Vanilla, I was interested to see how it would work out. I previously used their Shea Butter Lip Balm and the Body Oil in Grapefruit and was really pleased with the results. I have used a variety of body oils in the past and the results tend to vary.
Claims: “Our body oils contain pure, unrefined shea butter and are infused with avocado, sweet almond and olive oil. These oils will glide on smoothly and penetrate deeply into your skin without ever feeling greasy or sticky. Naturally rich in vitamins and antioxidants A, E, and F, they provide the ultimate nourishing, hydrating and anti-aging benefits. Your skin will feel incredibly soft and supple!”
Ingredients: Pure unrefined shea butter, avocado oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E oil, vanilla bean oil
Pros: Sweet scent. Very moisturizing. Absorbs into skin quickly. No greasy feel. Paraben free. Sulfate free. Phthalate free. Cruelty free and vegan formula.
Cons: The scent may be a bit sweet for some.
The Verdict: Just like the grapefruit body oil, I also really liked this one. It smells so sweet and delicious! You can tell that there is real vanilla in the product. I personally love it, but it may be too sweet for some. It was very moisturizing and not at all greasy. I feel like these body oils really live up to their claims. Plus, they just smell delicious!
