Pros:great misturization, quality ingredients. no parabens or DMDM. Made in the USA.

Cons:not a warm nutty scent like I had hoped.

The Bottom Line: good quality body butter at a great price


As  a Christmas present to myself, I bought a 4-pack of Tree Hut Shea Body Butters for $13 at Costco back before the holidays. I remember another fellow beauty reviewer at Epinions saying good things about them so I figured they were a safe bet at that price. The first one I tried was the Hawaiian Kukui.

Product Details

Like so many body butters, Tree Hut Hawaiian Kukui Shea Body Butter comes in a squat tub with a screw-on lid and 7 ounces of product. In addition to shea, this rich moisturizer contains Kukui Nut Oil, Cocoa Butter and Safflower Seed Oil .

Besides Costco, I've seen Tree Hut products in Walmart. I didn't used to associate Walmart with what I would consider "earth-friendly" manufacturers, but lately I've seen a good selection of products from such companies. Tree Hut is one such company. They do not do not engage in any animal testing and strive to use high quality ingredients in their products. For example, in their body butters they use certified organic Shea Butter. They do not use paraben as a preservative nor do they use DMDM Hydantoin. Tree Hut products are manufactured in Dallas, Texas.

My Thoughts

This is definitely a good quality body butter. It has that thick, dense consistency that I like.  The body body glistens in the tub, assuring me that it's chock full of moisturizers. After all, one of the many uses of kukui nuts in Hawaii used to be as a source of light, thanks to their high oil content, as these nuts used to be strung up and burned.

But even with its thick consistency, Hawaiian Kukui Shea Body Butter has a nice creamy feeling when applied to the skin. It's easy to apply and integrates nicely, and doesn't leave a greasy film on my skin. Yes, like other quality body butters it does leave my skin feeling a bit moist, but within 15 minutes it is completely absorbed. And hours later my skin still feels good. No itchy skin, which makes me happy, as my skin gets so dry and irritated in these dry Colorado winters. It does an especially good job of helping heal some of those dry rough patches on my elbows and feet.

The only thing that caught me a bit off guard was the scent. I expected some sort of rich warm nutty scent. But the scent of this Hawaiian Kukui Body Butter is a fruity coconut scent, a lot like The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter. If you like that scent, then this would be a great choice for you. But I've never loved that scent, preferring a more beachy coconut scent. 

Overall rating


Tree Hut Hawaiian Kukui Shea Body Butter  is certainly a very good body butter. While I'm not crazy about the scent, I can't complain about its great moisturization, as it does as well as body butters costing a whole lot more. I also like the high quality ingredients Tree Hut uses and the fact that they don't use parabens in their formulation. And at less than $4, that makes this body butter an excellent choice. 4 stars.
