I was really excited to try out the Shea Terra - Whipped Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Cream in Gingered Pumpkin since I saw it on my Beauty Army selection window, but then sadly it disappeared (cuz I went back to take a picture and it was gone!*sad face*). I heard great things about the smell and about Shea Terra in general, their products are organic and usually over 90% natural!
...Shea Terra Organics was the vision of Tammie’s quest to create markets for natural products from third world countries, which would help alleviate poverty while preserving diminishing habitats. Sufferers of skin ailments across the world sought out Tammie’s therapeutic grade shea butter products because they were amazingly affordable at a time when shea butter was sold at hundreds of dollars per pound. “Shea butter, straight from the African source, was really cheap. So many people needed it for its therapeutic benefits, but could not afford it due to its artificially high price. Women across the shea butter belt literally had tons they couldn’t sell due to low demand of this 'costly' butter. What I did was make high quality shea butter products available to everyone at unheard of prices. The result was a shea butter revolution. Large bulk suppliers, selling to the skin care industry, further undercut my prices and shea butter has spread like wildfire ever since. I am very pleased with this accomplishment. Finally, there is a demand market for the women to sell their shea butter, and so many sufferers with painful and disfiguring skin care problems are now able to afford relief,” expresses Tammie Umbel. Shea Terra Organics’ original company, African Shea Butter Company, successfully catapulted into an already saturated skin care market, setting new trends in the industry.

I was so sad when I couldn't get my Whipped Body Cream. I knew I had to do something, that was to buy a full size! I used a 15% off coupon that I got from Beauty Army and bought this.
The size of the Body Cream is really nice, 9oz. I got my product really quick and they were nice enough to send free samples as well!!!
The texture of this product is amazing, as well as the smell! OMG! As soon as I got it, I just wanted to grab a spoon and eat it! It has a sweet cinnamon and pumpkin smell. I love it and it stays for hours without being annoying, it's a rather subtle smell. It helps that it's whipped, but it's still a body butter. Don't expect it to be as easy to apply as a regular body lotion, it might take a bit longer to apply it, but it's totally worth it! I totally recommend this, especially for the winter. It leaves your skin moisturized and feeling great! Another great thing about it, is that a little goes a long way so a jar like this will last for a while, so when you think about it makes the price a great deal!
This product is sold on Beauty Army for $18, but it's sent by Shea Terra.
The samples I got were:
- African Wild Sage & Cinnamon In the Wild Hand & Bath Bar: When I got this, I thought it was candy! And I almost tried it out, turns out, it's soap! This has a really natural smell a little bit like cinnamon to me.
-Argan & Green Coffee Around-Eye Serum
I love this product so much! Ever since I got it, I just can't stop using it!
You can check it out here. If you do grab it, hope you love it as much as I do! This is my new HG body moisturizer.
