Wednesday's Weekly Obsession: Body Butter

One of the things I can never seem to get enough of buying; are moisturizers that not only smell good, but also help maintain & balance my skins natural glow.

This week's obsession is Body Butter! I always find it hard to resist walking down the beauty isle without picking up & trying at least one new product. I own a pretty ample amount of various Body Butters and Creams!

Allow me to introduce you to a few of my faves...

Riviera Blue by Sephora : $16

Why I Love It: It has a thick, rich, smooth texture and the scent is light and very soothing. I'd definitely recommend applying this before bed or right after showering so you can completely experience its relaxing properties. Buy it here.

Balinese Jasmine Body Butter by THERE: $6.99

Why I Love It: This stuff literally goes on like silk. It has a very thin milky like texture and the scent is sensual and pure with a touch of Jasmine and Shae Butter. Buy it here.

Self Sanctuary by Mark : $8

Why I Love It: The lime lavander scent is the perfect calming for a days worth of stress. Plus, it looks GREAT on my skin and makes me feel rejuvenated! Buy it here.

Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream by Burt's Bees: $9

Why I Love It: The sweet almond scent is SO captivating! It's really rich, so a small amount goes a long way. It's a little on the greasy side but this stuff literally lasts for hours. Buy it here.

Honeysuckle Lip Balm by Spa Collection

Why I Love It: Yes, it's actually a lip balm but I actually use it as a hand cream and it works!!! While I wish I could share with you WHERE I got it from, unfortunately I can't because I don't remember LOL. I tried googling the brand but no luck there...hmmm  the "Mystery Balm" has a very nice & light honey scent and makes my hands glow!

Soy Sugar Scrub by World Market: $7.99

Why I Love It: So technically this isn't exactly a body butter but it sure works like one. Its very creamy and has tiny sugar particles in it that exfoliate, moisturize and smooth.It leaves my skin looking glossy and feeling like silk. Buy it here.

What are some of your favorite Body Butter brands?
