I love shea butter on my body but would never use it on my face (except for my lips) because it is an emollient and emollients are pretty heavy on the face.

Maybe it'd work as an eye-cream? I wouldn't call it anti-aging. It's good for your skin, however.

shea butter is far too heavy and fatty for use on the face.

It fades blemishes but it tends to be too greasy for my face.  I do use just a little at night in the winter.

Shea butter is not anti-aging.

I dunno about anti-aging, but I use a shea butter/coconut oil/aloe gel mix on my face and I'm good. While I'm aware that people say shea and coconut oil are to heavy for face use, my skin loves it. Cant use too much, though, or I'll be looking like I dipped my face in a bucket of fried chicken all day.

Shea butter is too doggone thick for your face. You can use coconut oil instead. It gives you a glow when you wash it off.

I love shea butter. I whip it up with coconut oil and use it all over my body

I take a small dab with the face lotion and use that on my face overnight. I never use it if I'm going out though. Its too thick for that
