Review: Fran Kramer Skincare Shea Butter

What We're Sweet On: Pure and Simple Shea Butter

If you have finicky, dry skin, finding something that doesn't break it out, irritate it, or render less-than-spectacular results is notable indeed. So Från Krämer natural shea butter ($10) has managed to make us very, very happy. It's extremely hydrating, superlatively gentle, reasonably priced, and portable, too. Shea butter is solid at room temperature but melts right down when it's exposed to body heat, so you don't even have to check it when you're traveling, and you don't have to worry about spillage either. We like to use it on dry lips, rough patches, and any other skin that's gotten dried out over the course of the day. It's not complicated stuff, and if you want any benefits beside sheer moisture it might not be your pick. But if you're battling dry skin, it's an inexpensive, effective fix.
