Best Of, Body Care, Giveaways, Reviews - May 25th, 2012
Okay, I’ll admit up front that I’ve gotten to be really good friends with Becca, the genius behind One Hand Washes The Other. But we’re the kind of friends that if she made a product that sucked, she wouldn’t get all butthurt if I told her so. Buttella, her latest product, in fact doesn’t suck. It’s basically full of win. As an added bonus, I recently tried out a sample of Snayk Oyle, and it doesn’t suck either. Here are the details!
Buttella is a whipped cocoa butter with a delightful chocolate hazelnut fragrance blend exclusive to OHWTO. With notes of roasted hazelnuts, vanilla syrup, cocoa absolute and melted chocolate, it’s srs bsns for chocolate lovers. Buttella contains cocoa butter whipped with sweet almond, grapeseed, rice bran, and apricot oils – so basically, it’s a powerhouse of goodness for your skin. It melts on contact with skin, and has light yet significant feel on skin. It’s a little hard to describe, as it’s not at all greasy or oily, but you can definitely feel it on your skin.
Best use for Buttella? Apply it to damp skin directly after your shower or bath, and enjoy soft, moisturized skin for hours. A little goes a long way, so the 4 oz. jar isn’t going to get used up in a week unless you REALLY SLATHER this stuff. The scent is strong, it lingers for a long time. I also like to use it on my hands before bed.
Because Buttella melts at warmer temperatures, OHWTO only offers this in colder times of the year. So you’ll probably have to wait until next fall to order it. But don’t despair because…
…You can use Snayk Oyle in the meantime! Snayk Oyle is a lightweight dry(ish) oil spray, comprised of fabulous skin-loving ingredients like grapeseed and jojoba oils, olive squalane, meadowfoamseed oil, and cyclomethicone. Like with Buttella, apply this to damp skin and your skin feels soft and moisturized for hours. It’s not as rich (no cocoa butter, after all) but for summer use, it’s really quite perfect. What’s more, you can have it scented with the same Buttella scent! I have a Buttella one on the way to me, actually.
