Why I love body butter!
NOOO, not that kind of butter, body butter! I remember way back in junior high using my first body butter from The Body Shop. I loved going there rummaging through all the testers, smelling the yummy goodness. I bought strawberry and lathered it on every day until it ran out. I was young, my skin was young, my body was well hydrated. I probably put too much on because I remember feeling creamy, the butter slipping off my skin in the sun. I loved it. This was my very first introduction to ‘good’ ingredients and non-animal testing. My heart swooned. I tried every butter from here, loving the girls dressed in black asking me, “Have you tried this one, yet?”
Jump ahead some years and yep, still a sucker for body butters. I apply butter on my skin every day before I get dressed. Body butters are thicker and creamier than a lotion. Like frosting. Usually containing Shea, coconuts, or olives. In the past I collected an assortment of flavors. Now, I’m trying to do this minimalist thing, and only buy what I need (at times). So, one butter instead of say, three…unless there’s a special. 😉 wink!

I used L’Bri’s Mandarin Fig Body Butter for a long time…Amazing. I ran out. Conveniently, my girlfriend was having a Perfectly Posh party. I pondered to try something new. I tried my aunt’s Posh butter, then went home sifted through the website. Deciding on Snuggle Buddy Skin Joy from my friend’s party…I LOVE IT!!! I love the aroma. I lust the name. I love the kitties on the label. AND… it’s pure joy…skin joy. Snuggle Buddy Skin Joy
Body butters make my skin feel as if I drank a carafe of water. I feel young, flirty, and happy when I lather on my butter. I massage the butter from my ankles to my neck, thighs, arms, belly, bosom, and buttocks. YES! This morning or evening ritual wakes me up, lifts me up, and puts a smile on my face. I especially use extra butter in the winter and dryer times. Or after a long sun-kissed day. So, hurry up grab yourself a body butter and find the love I have for butters. Enjoy!
be you. be kind. breathe sweet.
