Firstly, what is the difference between body butter and body lotion?
There’s a reason why they call it body butter.
Body lotion tends to be made of a more liquid type content, and is often watery.
Body butter on the other hand is more dense and thick and oh so creamy! Just like butter.. but for your skin.
10 Reasons why you should pamper yourself with Body Butter.
The good ones are natural
There are a wide and diverse range of body butters on the market.
But the best ones are made from organic and cruelty-free products and come from a creditable company.
This means no harsh chemicals, no artificial components, or unknown factors.
Organic body butter is great for those with sensitive skin or allergies who are able to use them without worrying about having an allergic reaction.
They’re less likely to cause redness, swelling, or blotchy spots on your skin.
The raw, organic health body butters get absorbed into your skin quickly and are super light and soft.
They come in a range of sizes and scents.
Everyone has different tastes.
There is an assortment of scents to suit most tastes, whether it be floral or herbal.
Natural butters will give of that lovely fresh vibrant smell, which is better and less invasive than the artificial perfumed scents.
Some people may prefer a larger size in their bathrooms, or others may elect to have a smaller size for special occasions or as a travel item in their purse for upkeep and maintenance.
This product can cater to all tastes and requirements.
You can remove make up with it.
A lot of the on-market make up removers have chemicals in them, which can cause your skin to become itchy, red and blotchy.
Some of the cheaper products may mean you actually have to scrub at your skin to get the makeup of, which is never fun when you just want to get it all of and jump into bed.
