View Full Version : Cocoa butter for... every part of you

My loveliest discovery of the year so far!

I was looking for pure shea butter recently, when I accidentally was in a country where they actually sell it (I live in lovely but natural product-ly challenged Hungary, and I rarely ever order stuff from Internet).

I did not find shea butter, which I only very rarely get to use on my skin, and find it perfect all the time.

So I bought some cocoa butter instead. It sounded like a reasonable substitute, and smelled a-w-e-s-o-m-e <3

So I started using it on my skin, and then I thought about trying a bit on hair... and man, this thing is great! Way lighter than EVOO, or yoyoba/avocado whatever else oils, does not melt away in normal summer weather like coconut... and anyways, for me personally, it's just way better than cocnut oil was.

Also, it makes me smell like a freaking vanilla brownie <3

Not to mention it being the greatest massage oil - apparently, none of my friends mind smelling a bit like a vanilla brownie :D

PS - now i'm not sure, should I have put this in the "products" section? For me right now it seems like a generally, "mane-ly" great thing...

OK, I don't mean to hi-jack the thread, but I found this statement to be rather curious..."accidentally was in a country"...??? Do tell!

Love cocoa butter on my hair, but I don't like it on my skin, 'cause it cloggs my pores. I especially love it to mix it with other oils. But I find avocado oil even better honestly.

You're making me crave cocoa butter now! I wanna smell it. :laugh:

They have shea butter in L'Occitane. It's a bit pricey though.

I LOVE cocoa butter, I buy big tubs of it and use it as a moisturizer. Makes my skin so soft!

I love cocoa butter, too! It also gets rid of scars and stretch marks.
