As winter quickly approaches, it’s time to switch from lightweight body lotions to thicker body butters. Actually, who am I kidding? I never need to switch anything. My body skin is as parched as the Sahara, and needs the super moisturizing powers of body butters even in the heat of summer. *sighs*
But I guess yours is different, and needs something richer only during the cold winter months? In that case, you may want to pick up a jar of Edom Shea Body Butter in Ocean Mist.
Ocean Mist is the scent. It’s lovely. Clean. Fresh. Slightly salty. Like the sea on a warm, calm day. It lingers long, but subtly. You need to be very close to smell it.
The moisture lingers even longer. Packed with glycerin and shea butter, Edom Shea Body Butter keeps my skin soft and smooth from the moment I apply it early in the morning till late at night.
That’s how powerful shea butter is. After glycerin has drawn moisture from the environment into the skin, shea butter locks it in. Its effects, according to science, last for at least 8 hours. According to my skin, much longer than that.
Shea butter also has antioxidant properties, so it helps keep wrinkles away for longer. Our bodies needs that as much as our faces, even though we often forget about it!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention. Don’t think that, just because it contains shea butter, Edom Shea Body Butter is all thick and greasy. The texture is on the thicker side indeed, but it doesn’t leave any residue behind. It sinks in very quickly. At least my dry skin soaks it up in a heartbeat. I suppose on oily skin it may take a little longer to fully absorb.
What else? Oh, yes, the packaging. It’s a big white jar with a silver lid. It’s not the prettiest, but it’s sleek and full to the rim. Even if you have super dry skin like mine, it’ll last you for ages.
