Purchased this oil as recommended by the owner, to help my baby with his dry sensitive skin, (did not want to use chemicals from other over the counter prescribed products). Worked brilliantly, he no longer has dry or sensitive skin, he was red and itchy. Would definitely recommend it has worked wonders!!
Valued customer since 2015..thank you

I have very thick, very dry, Afro-European curly hair.

I read reviews of this product before purchase and decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did. The scent is subtle and slightly citrusy, and the bottle allows for easy application.
The liquid itself has great slip and hydrates my hair easily. Once dry I found that my hair had shrunk a fair bit, but I also had beautifully defined hair that felt thicker.

Advantages: easy to apply
wonderful smell
hair feels thicker
Curls defined
Hair is truly hydrated

Disadvantages: The desire to keep applying as it feels so good!
This may be why I'd like a bigger bottle

This soap is just what I needed - I have combination-oily skin and it provides the perfect balance leaving my skin with a matte finish after using it but without a stripped feeling. It comes with the perfect container for storage and I'm pretty amazed that after only using it for about a week, some of my stubborn dark spots are literally peeling and fading away which is quite remarkable. Thank you Akua for your amazing products and wonderful customer service, its very much appreciated!

Advantages: Works quickly, fades dark marks, moisturises skin and won't leave skin feeling stripped

Disadvantages: None

A little goes a long way and remarkably I found that I didn't need much for my 4c hair which is very thick, dry and usually needs excess product to feel moisturised. It smells lovely - I put it on last night and woke up today with soft bouncy moisturised twists. This product is just a dream for my hair and exactly what I needed. Another excellent product.

Advantages: Smells great, nicely packaged with amazing ingredients. Leaves hair soft, bouncy healthy looking and most importantly moisturised.

Disadvantages: At first I balked at the price point in comparison to the size but actually a little goes a long way and I didn't need much for my thick hair which is just a dream!
Henrietta about  PAPAYA SOAP : PAWPAW SOAP:
Apr 25, 2019
Verified buyer.
A very gentle and very effective cleanser that leaves my skin feeling clean,soft and hydrated.

My dark marks are fading and my skin tone is becoming more evenly balanced.

I like to rub the soap in for about 90 secs until its all absorbed before rinsing. Also a gentle exfoliant so a great alternative for skin that is sensitive to more abrasive exfoliants

Advantages: Long lasting, as you dont need much.
Pleasant scent

I bought this product because I was suffering from bad dry flaky skin on my cheeks.

After a few short weeks of using this shea butter my dry skin is no longer a problem. Great quality!

Thank you

I have relaxed hair and struggling to find something that keeps my hair ‘silky’ and soft and moisturise.

Smells nice. Bottle too small or perhaps I’m a little heavy handed. Will see what my hair’s like after 6-8 weeks post. Good stuff SBC

I can't believe how long I waited to get another tub of this, should have got some sooner!

It really is comfort in a pot both in scent and texture! There is something about the smell of the shea butter, oats and lavender together, it's so relaxing.

The texture is gorgeous on the skin and really makes it glow whilst getting rid of dry patches. A little goes along way so it lasts a long time. Definitely one of the best products from here!

Advantages: Good value for money, smells incredibly relaxing, can be used all over body including face, creamy texture that is easy to apply.

Disadvantages: None!

This is the BEST shampoo I have ever used since being on my hair journey.

I started using it while my hair was in braids and it did wonders for my scalp. Now my hair is out. I completely love it. It makes my scalp clean.

I gave a slice to my work colleague who is now a convert. :) Ordering MORE!!

I was introduced to this oil a few years back by a friend after experiencing severe postpartum hair loss. This really helped my hair grow back. I have used it ever since then.
Following the birth of my second child I knew what to use after experiencing postpartum hair loss again but this time it was very manageable as I was already using this oil. Pairing it up with your argan oil just works wonders.

I absolutely love love this oil!
I experienced postpartum shedding and my edges disappeared. I had never even heard of Haitian castor oil and as i was browsing through Sheabutter Cottage as usual, i came across it and decided to purchase it.
I massaged it on my edges daily and my edges are now back like it never left. Great oil!
Geraldine [Martinique] about  HIBISCUS HAIR BALM:
Feb 22, 2019
Verified buyer.
At first I didn't use it well on my fine, low porosity hair and then I got : tiny amount just at the tips of my hair and it did wonders. It's like a styling gel which helps my curls stay defined, shiny, and well hydrated. I bought it 1 year ago and I'm barely hitting the bottom. I'll definitely repurchase it.

Advantages: hydrates
keeps the frizz away (I live in tropical weather)
Smells good
very, very little goes a long way

Disadvantages: If you have 3B/C fine hair, it's a bit heavy, so use a tiny amount.
Tami [USA] about  ALOE VERA GEL:
Feb 18, 2019
Verified buyer.
I purchased this gel and love it for my curly hair. I haven’t used it for my eczema, but will try it upon receiving my next order.
It’s a great hold and works better on its own. I have tried mixing it with other products and for me it works better by itself.

Advantages: I don’t have to use it with other products. A true wash-n-go and let air dry.

Disadvantages: Doesn’t work with other products I may want to try.

This leave in is great! It's very light and does not weigh your hair down. I use it on my 4C hair and a little of it goes a long way, I'll definitely be purchasing again!

Advantages: Light weight and works well

I chose the Babassu Shampoo Bar for two reasons, firstly because it’s free from coconut (my hair has a Love-Hate relationship with coconut – it softens and shines my hair in spring and summer, but dries it to hay in autumn and winter).
My second reason for choosing the Babassu Shampoo Bar is because it’s unscented – I have sensitive skin and so I can only use unscented soaps.

Advantages: After rinsing out my DIY egg protein conditioner I applied the Babassu Shampoo Bar to my hair using only two to three swipes with the soap on the back of my hair and... WOW! My hair was immediately covered in super soft suds. I couldn’t believe how quickly the bar produced suds.
My hair felt super soft and moisturised during shampooing and there was absolutely no need for a second cleanse.

After rinsing, my hair was refreshingly clean and felt like silk. My scalp was silent all the way through - no irritation at all.

The Babassu Shampoo Bar is a PERFECT shampoo for anyone with sensitive skin who wants super soft moisturised hair.

I highly recommend it.

Disadvantages: None

Wonderful product! Just as other reviewers have subscribed, I have found the shampoo to be one of the few that lathers well, and both cleanses and softens my 4C hair. Thank you Sheabutter Cottage for the work on the top notch products.

In addition, thank you for the quality customer exercise in getting the product to me within time, despite this requiring you to make a batch so I could get the product on time.

I've bought shea butter many times and found it fantastic for eczema and my dry and sensitive skin. It cured my severe eczema.
I have tried many other cheaper brands but I always come back to sheabuttercottage. Nothing else matches the quality of the products and I have tried many different ones.

Sheabutter Cottage is fantastic for quality and purity

Advantages: No added chemicals or any nasties it's all pure good natural products, fantastic for sensitive skin and allergies.

Disadvantages: None
