Oh my goodness…I’m in complete awe of a sample base that I got during my last supply order. I decided to try a little Shea Aloe Butter. It is a mixture of 50% Aloe and 38% (I think) of Shea Butter. There were lots of 5 star ratings by other crafters and several wrote that they sell it as is, so I figured the sample (which was on sale or I’d have never discovered this little lovely) was a smart buy. It is one of the creamiest, smoothest, and thickest lotions I’ve ever felt. I was pretty skeptical when I first felt how thick it is, but it melts so amazingly quickly and thoroughly. I think an amazing scent palate will detect a slight nuttiness and that bitter note that aloe usually has, but should be pretty unscented to the average nose (if unadulterated I mean). Although the base is a bit expensive I think it’ll be well worth for people that have some dry trouble patches. I look forward to doing some more testing with it, but I’m so excited that I had to share while I’m giddy. *grin* Originally I planned on adding a few things to it to make a great base, but after a few uses I’m pretty sure that I’ll add a tad of scent and leave the formula as is. I love it too much and would be devastated if I were to make it less perfect. 😉
