Today, I am here with a review of Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer (with pure African Shea Butter). If you have gone through my other reviews, by this time, you might know that I have normal-dry skin,which is more on the drier side. So, my take on all the skin care products depends on how they have fared in quenching my skin’s thirst. I had been using Garnier’s body cocoon for a few winters now and loved it.
Last month, when I did some shopping from an online shopping site, they gave me a few sachet samples of Jergens body lotions. One was the ultra healing extra dry skin moisturiser and the other one was the shea butter deep conditioning moisturizer. First, I tried the ultra healing extra dry skin moisturizer after bath and I felt it was way to thick for myself and the smell wasn’t that good. Next, I tried this shea butter one and it felt promising!!
So,without wasting much time, I bought this one from the local market. I have been using this for about a month now and let’s see how it fared.
229 INR for 295 ml (some online sites are offering discounts).
36 months from the date of manufacture.
This comes in a white opaque big bottle with a blue flip-flop cap. It is quite sturdy, there is no leakage, nothing extravagant. It’s got that “no-nonsense-i-mind-my-job” look, I don’t complain!!
My Take on Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer:
This is a thick moisturizing lotion, good for after bath and bedtime application. It is a bit greasy on application but gets absorbed within 10-15 minutes. Being thick, you need only a little tiny-winy amount of the product. The other variety which was for extra dry skin was much more thicker than this. This moisturizer is not runny and that may be a con for some as it doesn’t glide well, but I am okay with it.
If I feel, then sometimes, I prefer diluting it a bit with some plain water/rose water. The moisturization effect lasts for a pretty decent time, you don’t get up in the morning with any kind of stretchy feel. The fragrance is good (of shea and cocoa butters) and lasts for sometime after application, nothing over the top or overwhelming, but if you have an extremely sensitive nose, you may not like it.
I have never much bothered about the ingredients and after joining IMBB, I see many of us are concerned about what goes into our personal care products. So girls, it contains parabens (now here’s a bit fact- parabens are basically used as preservatives, it makes the product more cost effective and it has been found to be associated with breast carcinoma, allergic dermatitis and some weak estrogenic stimulation, but all that is found in extremely low proportions and can cause harm with chronic usage).
On the sunny side, it contains shea butter, mango seed butter, cocoa seed butter, and glycerine.
Summing up the pros and cons of this moisturizer.

Would I Buy Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer Again:
It’s a big bottle and not much of the product is required, so I guess this one will see me through the winters, but, if I have to buy another moisturizing lotion, this would be it. Its my HG lotion for winters.
Would I Recommend Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer:
If you have dry skin and not ready to spend huge bucks on a high-end product, this can be a pretty good option.
