I have been trying to branch out into other type of product reviews while still sticking to my original theme of body positivity, self love, and body safe products. The Butters reached out to me again and asked if I wanted to review another item, so I jumped at the chance to do some branching. As you can tell from 99% of my site, I don’t review very many ‘vanilla’ products, but here we go!
The item that I ended up choosing was the ‘Soothing Cocoa Butter Body Lotion‘. I know that a lot of you need to have other ways of pampering your body besides masturbation, so I thought, why not feel, and smell, like a million bucks?! Plus with the lavender and tea tree oils, you’ll definitely be relaxed.
The Soothing Body lotion has a base of cocoa butter, with additional added (natural and vegan) ingredients such as vitamin C and E, olive and grape seed oils, aloe, plus good ol’ coconut oil. This combination of oils plus the added ‘soothing’ power of lavender and tea tree oils makes for a wonderful experience.
Upon ordering this particular product from The Butters store, I was warned that I would most likely have to spend a little bit of time warming up the bottle with my body heat before it was going to be easily squeezable. When you use thicker creams and oils such as cocoa butter and coconut oil, they do tend to be a bit temperamental based on temperature, but this turned out not to be an issue. When I received the bottle, I was immediately able to squeeze the stuff out and use it with no problems.
Upon first squeeze I was a bit worried, simple based on consistency, but this turned out to be so far from my mind once I rubbed the golden goodness around in my palm. What starts out as a pretty awkward pile of congealed lotion, quickly turns into a luxurious, creamy, fragrant, and spreadable lotion.
Personally, I used this lotion mostly for tummy and elbow hybration, but I also tested it on other problem areas of my body. After shaving I used it as a soothing balm and my skin felt incredible. Plus I did notice I had much fewer ingrown hairs than I usually do. Not sure if this was because of this lotion specifically, or if I just need to start lotioning after shaving, but either way, I was thrilled.
The bottle states that this product is great for everything from itchy/dry skin, to bug bites, and I believe it! I have extremely dry elbows and after using this product for a few days, they were back to normal. Plus the design of the bottle with the nifty little loop at the top and the thinness allows it to be taken on any type of adventure, whether you’re running to the store or hiking through the woods.
I would sincerely recommend this product from The Butters. So far I’ve tried this plus the PMS Rescue and I have yet to be really disappointed. Being a small business that makes all their products by hand, you know you’ll be getting quality and, as the labels state, love with each order.
I was sent the Soothing Cocoa Butter Body Lotion for free by The Butters Hygienics in exchange for my honest review. If you wish for me to review one or more of your products, contact me! I would love to hear from you!
