Yummy411: Product Review Shea Radiance

Yum! More whipped body butters! This time from another (local- to me at least) home grown company, Shea Radiance. I love that people are caring about their skin, caring about ingredients in products and coming up with some of the best solutions for dry and bothered skin. With shea butter being one Africa's best found secrets, the creators of Shea Radiance have whipped up some lush concotions with the moisturizer.
I had the opportunity to try the whipped body butter in Black Orchid. Similar to the smell and feel of a Carol's Daughter body butter, the richness and creaminess of this product leaves your skin feeling velvety soft. Some people may not be used to the amount of oil and moisture in this product, but when you suffer from severe dry skin that has a hard time in the winter, this body butter can feel very soothing.

I wasn't particularly keen on the Black Orchid smell, but there's no reason to not try this out in another fragrance. The body butter sales for $18.96 for an 8 oz jar or $22.76 for the 12 oz size.

I love supporting small businesses that care about the customers. Try one of the whipped butters or other products out for yourself! Visit to order or visit Beauty Out of Africa, creater Funlayo's beauty blog to see the latest happenings on Shea Radiance!
