It has been ridiculously cold for Washington lately. While my friends keep reminding me New York is generally colder, it’s still been really cold here. And of course, despite my year-round moisturizing, I found myself reaching for the heaviest body butter I own – Coconut Hut Beauty’s Big Kahuna Body Butter. In the dead of winter, I find that body butters are a necessity for deep moisture and to allow your skin to have a barrier against the cold and dryness. Butters with ingredients like shea butter, avocado butter, cocoa butter or beeswax all help moisturize and protect your skin.
One of my long-standing favorites is Coconut Hut’s. It is thick, over 98% natural, paraben free, is made up of 25% shea butter (one of my favorite ingredients) and just generally decadent and wonderful. Lena of Coconut Hut came out with this product back in fall of 2005, and I have been using it since the first month it was released! I especially love that I can pick any of the scents on the Coconut Hut extensive scent list. I tend to use the body butter at night because, while it’s not greasy, it still takes a long time to sink in, so I don’t want to risk staining any of my work clothes. Lena has a pre-holiday sale every November, so now is a good time to order.
