Whipped Lemongrass Shea Butter Review

When I think of typical shea butter... I just assume, "hmmm, another body butter available at any other typical bath & body location." Little did I know that I was in for a surprise... I was on Twitter and read a tweet from Karen Attiah offering a sample of her all natural Whipped Lemongrass Shea Butter, made of pure unrefined shea butter, jojoba oils, vitamin e, almond oil, and other pure oils. The first day I received this sample, I used it as a moisturizer all over my arms where I usually have a couple dry patches. It felt like I was putting a rich, whipped icing all over my arms and even smelled good enough to be one! I would describe this yummy lemongrass scent as a bold, clean, citrus fragrance. The butter instantly melted into my skin as I smoothed it on. My arms felt so smooth and even glistened in the sun too. After a couple days of using this on my arms I definitely seen an improvement on how healthy my skin looked! It even helped a lot with my dry patches too.

I decided to use the remaining half of the Whipped Lemongrass Shea Butter sample as hair dressing for my straightened-but-frizzy-hair. I rubbed the butter in my palms and spread it throughout my hair. First I noticed how amazing my hair smelled. When I walked past my 6-year old daughter she even stopped me to ask "Mommy what's that smell? It smells goooood!" I let her get a whiff of my hair and she smiled. The scent lasted pretty long and made my hair smell wonderful. The best part about using this as hair dressing is that it completely smoothed out all my frizzies.

You can learn more about Karen and  her mission is to "raise awareness of the plight of rural women in West Africa Who mix shea butter." This shea butter comes directly from Accra, Ghana. Her blog ( even explains the process of extracting shea butter. I can absolutely say that she has a great product that supports a great cause. Overall, I am completely satisfied with Karen's Whipped Lemongrass Shea Butter. I would LOVE to purchase some once it becomes available too!
