Rated 3.75 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Great lotion but getting to it is a nightmare
I absolutely LOVE LOVE this lotion but I had to cut it open and put it in another container. It's so thick (which I love) but can hardly get it out of the bottle. Please leave the product as is and put it in a body butter type container.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great product, but......
I love this and most Shea Moisture lotions. However, I don't buy them anymore because once 3/4 of the bottle is used it is extremely difficult to get any more out. It's frustrating and time-consuming.

I like this product. It makes my skin soft, but...it is very thick. I wish it had a pump.
Smell goodddd and moisturizes
Amy from Pensacola
If you put multiple layers on it will start to pill but you really only need one because it's so rich.
Love this lotion-now my go-to
Jennifer from Asheville, NC
I use this daily out of the shower or bath. It is an excellent daily moisturizer. It keeps my skin so soft and supple. It also has very pure natural ingredients which is of the utmost importance to me. The only problem is- towards the end of the bottle it's hard to get it out bc its so thick. I wouldn't trade its effectiveness for this being easier so I deal with it! Otherwise I would've given it 5 stars. Also it is very affordable.

This lotion does an amazing job hydrating your skin and leaving it soft to the touch - and all with natural ingredients! I love that last part the most. My only complaint is the container it's in. Because the lotion is so think, you can't get it out of the container. I recommend you have a jar or something that you can pour the contents into so that you can cut open the bottle to get all that goodness, that you paid for, out.
Doesn't smell like coconut
Jazz from NJ
I hate the smell of this, I'm actually returning it.
It's really thick and smooth.
Granny from Spring Hill, Florida
I like the smell and the smooth texture. I am allergic to many lotions mostly because of formaldehyde reducers. This product is natural, which is one of the reasons I tried it. I only wish I could get it all out of the container. I want every drop. I don't want to have to throw any of it away. The baby shea butter is also good. I can get it all out of the container. Great products! I have all ready recommended it to my chiropractor's wife.
Feels, Smells and works Beautifully.

I've used the soap for years a couple of years now and just recently noticed the body lotion. The lotion is much thicker than anything I have ever used, so I wasn't sure what to expect. And just like their soaps the body lotion is wonderful. My skin stayed hydrated all day with a light beautiful fragrance. I have dry skin and with most lotions I need a second application initially or during the day, but not with this lotion, my skin stayed smooth and supple all day long.
Ehh, good moisturizer, horrible packaging
Paticas from FL
Good product, but so difficult to get out of the bottle. I have to practically fight with the bottle to get some product out. The formula is too thick for bottle dispersion. You should package it in a jar not a bottle.
Lucy from undisclosed
I absolutely love this lotion! Goes on smooth, softens and protects. And I can use it daily without having skin reactions. I bought this after trying the Curl & Shine Condition which I also like very much. However, both products are very difficult to squeeze out of the bottle. Have you though about packaging the lotion in a tub? It would be much easier to scoop out and apply. I still gave it 5 stars, because of the product itself is great!
Smelled like vomit
Am11 from undisclosed
I don't know if I got a bad product or what. I can't imagine that this was the smell the company was going for. It's not like it was a perfume I didn't care for. It was the strongest rancid, putrid acidic vomit smell I have ever encountered outside of a trash can. I just bought it yesterday. I washed twice and still can't get out the smell
Can we talk about the smell??!
Georgia Mom from Marietta, GA
SheaMoisture's Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hair Mask is one of the best I've ever used, so I was excited to try their body lotion. It did make my skin really soft - but omg it STINKS. Pewww! I had to take another shower to get the smell off my body. IDK if it was rancid or if that's the normal smell, but it's a hard pass for me. So glad I purchased the travel size first. Now it's in the recycle bin.
I will continue to use this product

Great product for the price . I love the fact that it's made in the USA. I will continue to use
Sasa from Chicago
She's thick my friends. Very moisturizing and absorbs quickly which is great! But it's very hard to get it out of the bottle, especially when your hands are covered in lotion! Had to remove the lid and push the bottle with two hands against the bathroom sink. Came out as one long white sausage. Could've cut it with scissors. Put a black shirt on 10 minutes after. My shirt was covered in white residue. :(

I bought this because I'm OBSESSED with the body wash, but this was a complete miss. It's moisturizing, but leaves a thick white film over your body that transfers to anything and everything. It reminded me of a zinc sunscreen. Plus it's impossible to get out of the bottle, you have the remove the cap and still squeeze super hard. The coconut and hibiscus lotion doesn't have any of these problems and is just as moisturizing. The cactus water and coconut lotion is lighter still and just as moisturizing, but has a stronger scent.
Sarah from undisclosed
This lotion is very soothing and moisturizing, and it has a very natural scent. I love that it's made with such clean ingredients. I think this product is great for sensitive skin. However I took one star off because it feels quite thick and heavy when first applied. I like to put it on before bed, but would not recommend using it right before you have to go somewhere because it does leave a sticky residue for awhile and you cant really put on clothes right away :/
hound from undisclosed
this is a very thick and rich lotion. it covers completely . I use it all over
Really Great Stuff!
BobbyBoJangles from undisclosed
This lotion is amazing for dry winter skin. I don't understand why people are having a hard time getting it out of the bottle though? You don't have to be He-Man to get it out of the bottle. It is thicker lotion, but I wouldn't change a thing with it.
dsunnyglam from undisclosed
This lotion smells great makes your skin feel wonderful I do with really dry skin especially in the winter than this lotion has been Wonder maker it has me if my skin feeling great again definitely will be fine even though it's pricey I guess it's worth it at the end I love the scent of coconut .
absolutely in love with this skin care line
Tuls from Iselin, NJ
this doesn't have extra chemicals which I love and is very moisturizing.
Hated the feeling of it on my hands
sonjaelisee from undisclosed
I've enjoyed many other Shea Moisture products but this is probably one of the worst lotions I have ever used. It's incredibly hard to get it out of the bottle, and once it's on, I wish I had just left it in there! It's very thick so it's hard to work into the skin and leaves my hands feeling greasy and sticky at the same time. This feeling lasts at least 20 minutes for me and afterwards, they feel only slightly moisturized. I used this primarily as a hand lotion but frequently applied it to my elbows as well and they also turned sticky/greasy - almost like the feeling of anti-grease sunscreen if you know what I mean. Absolutely did not work for me and my skin and I would not recommend it.
Not for me
Luckymama13 from WA
Wanted to try this out since I use the same bar soap, but sadly was too much for my skin. Broke me out
Great moisturizer. Packaging terrible.
lb1965 from undisclosed
I love the moisturizing properties but lowered my review because the bottle makes it very difficult to dispense the product. The formula is great but it needs to be in a body butter tub.
Love the lotion better container
car1701 from undisclosed
Love the lotion just hard to get out of container. Please put in squeeze bottle. Thank You love you Shea Moisture.
Hard to squeeze lotion out of bottle
ingohana from undisclosed
It's really hard to get the lotion out of the bottle since the lotion is so thick. I'm ready to just cut the bottle in half with the blade tool.
