In my family we all use coconut oil. It makes our skin so smooth and soft. Never try Shea Butter.

Tried them both. Hated coconut oil. it was just like olive oil on my skin. It just left my oily and crispy feeling. But shea butter is the bomb. If you mix it with aloe vera gel and glycerin, you got the most moisturizing cream for the winter!!!

It's the same as wetting your hair and moisturizing and sealing your hair.


Totally agree with this statement. I mix it up. I use Coconut oil sometimes but in the winter months I have to use something heavier. I mentioned applying the moisture after leaving the shower and other methods on

Never tried coconut oil. Shea butter works for me.

Pure coconut oil made my dry skin even drier. Shea butter is better once you get past the scent.

I usually use cocoa butter as well. From reading though, I think I may way to try coconut oil now. I have a good friend of mines, she gets this lotion stuff from this really nice lady in atlanta,like she sends it to my friend all the time. I know it has shea butter in it, but theres other things in it too. It feels REALLY good,and has a good smell. My home girl swears by the stuff. Seriously.lol Im gonna call her and see if she can tell me what it is and come back and post it on here for you guys. I dont mind sharing the good productsThumbs Up
