Today is our first real proper cold day. I haven’t turned on the heat in my apartment yet, but I know that time is coming all too soon. And just like every past year, the second the heat is turned on, my skin is sucked dry of moisture. So I am getting a jump on the game with this arsenal of body butters. Here are my top five for winter:
Caudalie Vine Body Butter not only hydrates but smooths. The fragrance is enchanting with Sweet Orange Zest, Peach Pulp, Carrot and Iris. The formula provides shea butter with a protective hydrolipidic film.
Olivina’s new collection, Milk and Honey, has the perfect cozy fall scent. The fragrance is subtle yet sweet. And skin stays hydrated but not sticky.
June Jacobs Papaya Body Balm is paraben and preservative free. This under-the-radar brand is one of my new favorites and this balm leaves skin plumped. It also contains antioxidants to combat signs of aging.
Ellovi Butter is purity at its best. Only six ingredients are used to make this rich, thick butter. Because it doesn’t contain water, it doesn’t evaporate. There is very little scent. This is my pick for the worst cases of dry skin and those who like to support cruelty free formulas.
H2O Plus Spa Sea Salt Hydrating Body Butter almost sounds counter intuitive. But actually marine botanicals, including Wakame, Sea Lettuce, and Sea Fennel provide deep, oil-free hydration. This formula also contains antioxidants from Green and Paraguay teas.
