I am a huge fan of body creams, the more the merrier as far as I’m concerned. I love to exit the bath or shower and smother myself in a luxurious cream.
I can tell if it’s a good one by the state of my skin come the morning. If, upon waking, my skin still looks and feels hydrated, I know I have found a winner.
My latest discovery is Butter Me Up Organic Shea Body Butter from Laidbare. The cream contains cocoa butter, avocado oil and rose hip oil all of which combine to make a rich, luxurious and skin softening body butter.
The natural cream has scents of organic jasmine, bergamot, patchouli and vertiver all of which are said to aid relaxation as well as smell great.
I find it best applied to damp skin as it sinks in really well, leaves behind a nice scent to help drift you off to sleep and does a fabulous job at really moisturising the skin. And yes, my skin was still hydrated in the morning.
