One of my favorite things is recommending a beauty product to someone, and then having them react as follows: “Whaaaat?!! How did I not know about this before?!” That is typically the response I get whenever I recommend this little gem of a bath & body product to someone and they try it – it is just that good. If you do have a Trader Joe’s near you, or have connections with people who do, I highly recommend giving this body butter a try for summer. Yes, it is inexpensive, but not always does a high price equal a better beauty product – this is one of those unsung heroes that deserves praise. It is a naturally-derived product that contains coconut oil, but also does have a minor amount of added fragrance to it (just a word of caution for those who cannot wear synthetic scents due to sensitivity). As many of you know, coconut oil is having it’s 15 minutes of fame in the beauty industry, and sadly is almost becoming a bit tiring to hear of. I’m not recommending it solely for that reason, but rather that this product is just darn good. Let’s count the ways!
1) Deeply hydrating but not greasy – it absorbs fast!
2) Good for all-over body use – unlike other body butters, this spreads evenly and quickly. Great for elbows and cuticles!
3) Smells sweet and fresh, but not like a cocktail with an umbrella in it. I like to think of it as a sophisticated use of coconuts…. like if coconuts met up with an Ivy League grad. Is that weird?
4) Huge value! This is super concentrated and lasts a long time. That is if the other people in your household don’t keep stealing it from you.
Enjoy this little kickstarter to summer – you’ll be glad you did!
