Achieving soft, smooth skin can be a challenge, especially when you have eczema.
I usually stick with heavier creams that not only hydrate, but also seal in the moisture and keep my skin supple throughout the day.
I'm a big fan of shea butter, mango butter and avocado butter which are healing for my dry, sensitive skin.
I use them quite often, so when I heard about Shea Moisture Three Butters Lotion with Shea, Mango and Avocado Butters, I was excited to give it a try!
Before I get to my experience, let me first share the info on this "tall drink for thirsty skin!"

When I opened the bottle, I was a pleasantly surprised at how rich this lotion is. Shea Moisture Three Butters Lotion is smooth and blendable without being greasy or heavy. It easily absorbed into my skin and left a nice, supple sheen.
I was also impressed by the fact that Shea Moisture Three Butters Lotion’s moisture and protection lasted throughout the day on my arms, legs and feet. The hydrating lotion continued to absorb and soften my hands as I re-applied it after each hand-washing.

For those suffering from dry or sensitive skin conditions, this might be the soothing skin solution you need! Keep in mind that the fresh herbal scent, while light, could clash with other fragrances. I loved the lotion, but I wasn't crazy about the fragrance.
