Unlike last week, today it is most definitely cold enough to warrant a post about butters for dry winter skin. One of my favorites is Carol’s Daughter Body Butter — specifically the Almond Cookie one, but I also really like the Love Butter (pictured here) and the SweetHoneyDip…Chocolate Brown Sugah butter.
So why do I love them so much? First, they are all free of parabens, artificial colors, mineral oils and petroleum. Second, they have a great ingredients like jojoba oil, cocoa butter and shea butter. The Almond Cookie one also has almond oil. And the scents are lovely. The Almond Cookie one smells a bit richer than the edp scent I wrote about last week. The Love Butter is a rich but not overly spicy cinnamon. I don’t get the honey or brown sugar notes that the description mentions, but it really is a nice rich cinnamon that does not turn to pure dusty spice. As for the SweetHoneyDip etc butter — it’s a chocolate-vanilla-honey explosion. It’s one of the few chocolate scents I can wear.
There are many other scents if you don’t like bakery scents — do note that these butters are very greasy so, while great for night, I would not recommend using them during the day and risk staining your clothes.
Stay warm, whereever you are.
