This summer a lot of us with babies and small children learned what it was like to be stuck indoors, thanks to the fabulous heat wave that made it’s way across America. Unfortunately being stuck inside (hopefully with an air conditioner) if you’re anything like me you learned that your skin can get extremely dry. Almost comparable to what happens when you’re stuck inside during winter.
If you’ve been here for a while you know that I’m a lotion nut. I love to try every kind of lotion I come across. Mostly because it’s just so hard to find a lotion that is perfect for me. I also want variety. I like to switch it up once in a while. I love creams. Lotions that are thick and perfect for places like elbows, knees, feet & even hands.
When I opened up the Coconut Lime Shea Body Butter from Tree Hut, don’t laugh! I was immediately transported to a tropical island. Oh yes, it smells that good. I figured well, if it smells this good it’s probably not going to work. I was wrong. And boy I’m glad I was. I am so happy I was introduced to it because the cream I use now is on the expensive side. I can afford it but I don’t like spending that much all the time for the same ol’ thing. The Shea Body Butter is not as thick as my regular cream but it is thick, without being oily. I’ve even used it on my face. I especially like to use it right after I’ve taken a shower because it smells so bright and fresh. It really has a wonderful summery tropical scent that just puts you in a good mood the moment you smell it. Best of all, it’s very affordable. It comes in several over scents that I can’t wait to try, including:
More About Shea Butter
“Shea butter has an unusually high content of rich natural oils, vitamins and minerals far exceeding the amounts occurring in cocoa butter. Shea Butter improves skin tone, re-hydrates skin, promotes cell rejuvenation, improves skin elasticity and lessens the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks by providing skin with natural healing agents.”
That means it would be perfect for those of you that are pregnant or just had a baby, as well as the rest of us that just have dry skin or love using lotions.

As a personal suggestion I recommend Amazon where amazingly I found the Coconut Lime Shea Body Butter in a 3 pack for $15! That means it’s literally 5 bucks a tub. It would be absolutely perfect to give for Christmas or a present at any time. Keep 1 for yourself and give 2 away!
