This face mask is amazing. It comes as a powder, so you have the added joy of feeling like a wizard mixing it up before application.
And talking of magic, it's worked wonders on my skin! My skin is softer, brighter and some of the fine lines have become less noticeable. I love this product!

Advantages: I love the appearance of my skin even days after use! It's helped with my skin texture and brightness.
Alison L about  SHEA BUTTER : UNREFINED [10KGS]:
Apr 6, 2021
Verified buyer.
Absolutely love this shea butter! It's incredibly pure and feels just incredible on the skin. I've recommended it to many people who have all bought some and love it too. I've bought it to use in my handmade soaps - I made the first batch with them at the weekend and can't wait to try them. I know that it will make a big difference to my end product.

Advantages: Love that by purchasing this shea butter I'm contributing to supporting these shea queens in Ghana. And the shea butter speaks for itself, it's smooth, creamy, and you can tell the quality by just looking at it, and that's before you've put it on your skin.

Disadvantages: Zero - it's amazing!

Vicky about  MARULA HAIR BALM:
Dec 23, 2020
Verified buyer.
For many years I have been looking for a remedy for my scalp psoriasis and no joy however came across your Marula hair pomade and thought why not.

Read about the many beneficial properties in your Shea butter products, Amazing.
I must say I’m really finding this very effective. It’s the first week yes however I will be usually scratching like crazy to the point of bruising... but so far so very good, soothing, my fingers have a break yay! and soft for my thick and usually hard to comb Afro.

Smell reminds me of home so all in all a lovely reminiscing healing journey. Thank you

Before Sheabutter Cottage, I hadn’t heard nor tried any unrefined oils.

Ms Akua’s website allows you to experiment with skincare products in their natural state. I love and use most of her oils.

Advantages: I add shea oil, to the shea butter mixture before whipping, it adds a nice shine, and texture to it. Plus, it's also great for your cuticles.
Marie about  CASTOR OIL : ORGANIC:
Nov 28, 2020
Verified buyer.
I used a lot of castor oils from different brands but I have never experienced quick and great results like I did with Shebutter Cottage’s castor oil!

I have been using this oil for a month and I can see a huge difference with my hair but especially with my edges. I have been massaging my edges for a month now and the results are REAL! Thank you Sheabutter Cottage for organic and amazing quality products! This oil was a part of my very first order but I will undoubtedly become a loyal customer!
Francesca about  CHARCOAL SOAP:
Oct 19, 2020
Verified buyer.
I don't think I could exaggerate how good this is.
I have okay skin, but I am prone to break outs.

In the six months of using this daily my skin has definitely improved. I get maybe 1 spot at a time instead of everywhere, my skin looks clearer and in better condition, and I no longer have dry patches.

Thoroughly recommend!!

I bought the unrefined Shea butter and African mesh sponge to see how I got on and it’s been life changing.

The Shea butter is beautiful and I felt very proud of my whipping skills ☺️ (did a bit of research) My skin has never looked or felt better. It is so wonderful to know I am putting something so pure on my skin and seeing how it nourishes it so wonderfully.

I then read somewhere about putting it on your hair and my hair has just loved it and soaked it up without looking greasy and it is not heavy at all - it’s also made it so much easier to blow dry and it’s softer than ever.

I then ordered two more refill packs of shea butter and have whipped them with an essential oil blend called woman’s balance and will be giving it to various friends as little gift jars because sometimes woman need to look after each other even in a small way. I want to share the Shea butter joy!

Advantages: What great products, fantastic service, speedy delivery and all round experience. Thank you

I purchase from Shea Butter Cottage often and one of my favorite products by far is the Serwaa Clay Shampoo; it is clarifying, volumizing and strengthens my hair.

I recommend this product to all of my family and friends and truly understand why Shea Butter Cottage has won so many awards.

I will forever be a loyal customer!
Nathalie about  PAPAYA SOAP : PAWPAW SOAP:
Sep 12, 2020
Verified buyer.
I’ve only just started using this soap for TWO days, and I had to come on here to review it because it’s THAT good! After two usages, the blemishes and dark spots around my mouth which I’ve had for a long time (I think it could’ve been perioral dermatitis) are disappearing in front of my very eyes! And if any spots do appear, they don’t last more than a day. I use argan oil to moisturise my face after using the papaya soap, and my skin is left feeling so soft and rejuvenated and I wake up with moisturised and soft skin in the morning.
Truly can’t recommend it enough, thank you so much Akua and your lovely team back in Ghana for making such wonderful products!

This product has changed my skin and hair care routine - I now use nothing else on my hair and skin apart from cleansing. I will undoubtedly use this for the rest of my life (seriously).
My mum, sister & dad now use the shea butter too since they noticed such a glow, radiance and healthy look to my skin since using it. It is very good value & I whip it myself from the raw form its sold in (you can also buy it whipped on this website).

SheaButter Cottage is a wonderful brand that I admire for its ethical values, wholesomeness, and sustainability. I think its especially great that they work directly with the women in Ghana who make the shea butter and emphasise the importance on their website of paying them fairly.

I could honestly go on forever about this product.... I cant stop telling people about it.

Advantages: natural, in my opinion- it is the only moisturising agent I need for my skin and hair.
Acts as a moisturiser, oil, balm, serum, mask.
When used sparingly & left to sink it it works AMAZINGLY under makeup - creates such a soft silky base.

Disadvantages: Absolutely nothing

Aug 29, 2020
Verified buyer.
I have taken this as tea for the last two weeks and my night sleep has been undisturbed.

Advantages: Some say it opens the bowels and makes one frequent the toilet. I am yet to experience that.
I use a full tea spoon for my tea which I really enjoy.

Disadvantages: Just the dark colour

So my natural hair was so dry, even after a wash it felt like plastic.
Any products I used on it just sat on the hair. So I was looking for a product to help deep condition my hair, make it soft and to be able to absorb the other products I use.
Hmmm, I'm glad to have come across the cocoa+marula bar. It has helped condition my plastic hair so well. I mean any leave in conditioners and other products I use after treatment with the bar has been absorbed into my hair. The products are not sitting on my hair just getting wasted.
My hair is loving the treatment, it's feeling healthier, bouncier and my coils are so well defined now. I'm just loving my natural hair now. So thank you for this product, definitely worth the money and I must say cost the same as getting a treatment from my hairdresser but perhaps this has better benefits. I've done 2 treatments so far and the results are fantastic.
Definitely buying more and I'm looking forward to trying the Serwaa Clay and other products.
