From Haus Of Gloi’s website:
Our Pumpkin Butter formula is divine intervention for the skin. Made with shea butter and unrefined pumpkin seed oil this moisturizer is rich without being too greasy. Each batch is made from scratch, paraben free and vegan.

What I liked:
– very moistrurizing, makes even the driest of skin soft and smooth
– longlasting
– rich texture sinks in quickly, without leaving any greasy residue behind
– delicious scent
– samples available

What I didn’t like:
– I honestly can’t think of anything

Do you like insalata (salad)? I’ve never been a fan. Whenever I go to lunch with my girlfriends, and one or more of them orders a salad, I can’t help but think “how can you eat that without some sort of meat or fish?!” I’m all for eating your veggies, but to me, salads are a side dish, never a main one. Eating it on its own just seems so… sad.

But there’s a salad that doesn’t need anything extra to make it appetizing: Insalata Nocturna, one of the many gorgeous scents by Haus of Gloi. This blend of green Bolivian lemon, rubbed tomato leaf, olive leaf absolute, black fig syrup and basil is so fresh, crisp, and bright. It reminds me of the vegetable garden my grannie used to keep when I was little and the many delicious homemade dishes she used to cook for us. Yummy! Too bad you can’t eat this one.

Insalata Notturna has just the right sillage. Not so overpowering it will offend your nose but not too subtle either. This scent is infused in several of the brand’s products. I have their luxurious Pumpkin Butter, a staple for me in winter when my skin gets very dry. Its rich texture sinks quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue behind.

The smallest amount is enough to keep your dry skin soft and smooth for the entire day. Yep, that’s how moisturizing it is. Its secret is Shea Butter, which is rich in hydrating fatty acids, such as oleic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid, and palmitic acid. Shea Butter works by creating a barrier on the skin that prevents water loss. According to a study conducted by AAK, it works even better than mineral oil.

That’s not all. It also contains Pumpkin Seed Oil, an antioxidant rich in Vitamin E and caroteinods, to prevent further damage and premature aging. If you’re still sceptical, you can try a sample. But be warned, this stuff causes addiction! Thank you Janessa for feeding mine and sending me this Pumpkin Butter. 🙂

Hahaha love the salad segue! I personally love steak salads with grilled vegetables on top of spring mix, but that’s mostly because it’s not all veggies 😉 The scent of this sounds gorgeous, I wasn’t sure what to expect with a name like that, but I NEED to sniff this stat.

Sarah, glad you loved it. That scent is really gorgeous. I must have put this body butter in my cart a dozen times and always took it out because I though the scent wouldn’t be interesting enough. So glad I got the chance to try it finally cos it’s really good!

Love the font on the packaging! But just to make sure, is this a butter for your face? Or is it a body butter. I couldn’t tell from your review.
