As I put the recipe together, I used Shea butter for the first time! I made a discovery: it smells like clay. This led me to another discovery: I would probably smell like an art project.
That night, I slathered it on my face. Ya' know what? My face was shiny.
It was so shiny, in fact, that I looked like a reflective street sign. The next morning, however, my shininess was cured and I could no longer be used in road construction.
After I had tried the face cream, I was very satisfied. My face was as smooth as butter!
In conclusion, if you don't mind smelling like an art project and temporarily looking like a yield sign, go for it!
