I haven’t always had a love affair with shea based products. In fact, I’ve found very few of them to be great with my mane but since I started using Shea Moisture body products regularly, I’ve found a greater appreciation for all things shea. Fortunately for me, Shea Moisture provided some products for review and I have yet to be let down by their body products. Here’s my take on a piece of the stash, read my review of Shea Moisture’s Three Butters Wash & Scrub.
Packaging: I get the impression that Shea Moisture made a concerted effort with this product and the Shave and Groom Set to create a set of specific products targeted to male consumers. Blue is historically masculine and happens to be one of my favorite colors anyway, so that paired with an amber-colored clear bottle is pretty cool. It even matches my Yankees themed bathroom (LET’S GO YANKEES! *insert claps here*). I think most guys wouldn’t mind having this sitting around their shower stall at all, at least I know I didn’t.
Consistency: With a name like Three Butters, one would expect to get a milky smooth texture and that’s exactly what you get here. Made up of shea, mango and avocado butters this stuff has a pretty rich and luxurious feel to it. When I first started using the wash I was impressed immediately. It’s just SO smooth and, like the face wash, has jojoba beads for added moisture. The formulation here works so well and the consistency and feel rivals some more mainstream (and expensive) competitors.
Smell: The wash has a very distinct earthy, nutty scent which is great for those seeking mild, natural scents. There’s also this bright note likely due to the orange and bergamot oils. To me, it’s damn near perfection.
Price: Most of Shea Moisture’s products retail for about $10.
Overall Impression: Man, this stuff is just…awesome. Ever since I discovered Shea Moisture’s Three Butters Wash & Scrub I don’t like using anything else. This wash delivers a natural earthy smell, gentle cleansing properties and moisture all in one. If you’re a guy and looking for a new wash to try start here!
