    Shea Butter Alternative for the Face? 15th May 18 at 4:03 PM
    Shea Butter is a great moisturiser for the skin and is natural from what i've heard however, due to clogging of the pores can't be used on the face.
    Is there a natural product that does moisturise my dry facial skin, i don't feel any benefit from the normal face creams on the market and would love to find a cheap natural item similar to Shea Butter that won't break the bank.

    My skin gets clogged easily from most creams. Have you tried rose hip oil? I buy the organic cold-pressed from The Ordinary. My skin has never felt better, but I guess it depends how dry your skin tends to be. For very dry skin I heard squalane oil is really good. You can buy that from TO as well, it's just 5.50 for 30ml.

    Great advice, many thanks i will have a look for that, i do suffer from very dry facial skin however, i have tried all sorts of creams which i personally think make me look even worse, that's why i'm trying to go as natural as possible, i don't believe the hype with the more expensive items, i think they rely on the placebo effect.
