Is pure shea butter oily?

I am interested in buying some raw shea butter off the internet, as a facial moisturiser. But can you tell me if it's oily like coconut oil? I need a natural moisturiser I can use by day without looking like I have a plastic face :D
Thanks Mamas

  • Shea butter is a GREAT moisturizer. It's like the only substance that won't make me break out like a prepubescent girl during pregnancy.

  • From what I have seen, no. It is thicker and heavier but it is supposed to be great for your skin.
