    Posted: Nov 05 2012 at 12:03pm
I bought some Shea butter and when i apply it to my face it doesn't seem to absorb well, leaving my face dry and tight by time I wake up. Especially since I've applied it after using facial wash as I have skin prone to spots.

Any tips on applying?

shea butter is more of a sealant. you can apply it while you are still damp from the shower & it will seal in that moisture.

I second this. Moisturizers are best used and absorbed when damp. Same principal for hair.

Ok I'll try this but I feel when I apply it when damp I've not put enough on :p
I'll see If the advice helps as I wanna tone down the appearance of black marks too.

I'll let you know

Are you whipping the shea butter? Maybe that will help

For dark marks try cotton-balling some lemon juice from time to time and then letting a glob of shea or some other butter lay on the mark overnight.

It claims to be 'creamy' so I assumed its been whipped.
Not as creamy as i would like it though maybe i'll whip it myself

No look for me even when damp.

Might just be that brand of shea butter I don't know
