Gilden Tree 95% Shea Butter Balm


Pros: moisturizes and smells FANTASTIC

Cons: ?

 I was lucky enough to receive a little trio of Gilden Tree products recently. While I have not yet had the time for a home pedicure (foot scrub/foot lotion), I couldn't wait to try out the shea butter.


All three products smell lovely - fresh and aquatic <if that makes any sense. In fact, it reminds me of a clean and wonderful smelling man. That might sound a little weird - ok, yeah, it does. 


Basically, I enjoy the fragrance - light, clean, refreshing with a subtle resemblance to a masculine scent. It's not deterring me from using the product - at all - I just thought I would point that out. 


Can't wait for my pedicure!!


I use this for my chapped hands and it does a great job. I would say it is very healing, but tends to be oily so it's better used before going to bed or something. I like the short ingredient list and the fragrance is very subtle and pleasant. It reminds me of men's products (it doesn't say what it is though).

Gilden Tree 95% Shea Butter Balm

A big 4 oz. jar of 95% Shea Butter in a lush, soft creamy balm that melts into dry skin, leaving it calmed and restored. Shea Butter is an extraordinarily emollient nut butter, harvested by women in Africa. It's one of the most exciting traditional healing ingredients to come to light recently, because it's so versatile. Try it as a hair dressing, on cuticles and nails and on tough areas like elbows and knees.
