One Hand Washes The Other’s Buttella & Snayk Oyle (And Giveaway!)
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.

Because Snayk Oyle is so full of win, Becca and I are giving away a 2 oz. bottle to one lucky reader! To enter, leave a comment telling me what your favorite summer scent or perfume is. For ONE additional entry, you can tweet about the giveaway (leave a comment with a link to your tweet). This giveaway will run through next Friday June 1st at midnight PDT. Entries must have a valid email. Thanks and good luck!!

    OCEANSIDE. Ohmygod it smells so good.

  2. Stephanie says:

    Snayk Oyle is AWESOME. I use in my hair, on my skin, a teensy bit on my face if I get too hot, on squeaky door hinges, and on my wooden knitting needles. My precioussss!

    I also tweeted, which will possibly lessen my chances. Which is okay, because everyone needs Snayk Oyle. Just, you know, mostly me.

  3. Stephanie says:

    Oh, right, I forgot part of it. My favorite summery smell is anything lime, and this particular summer, it seems to be OHWTO’s Desolation Angel, mixed with a little bit of Lost at Sea.

  4. Amanda says:

    I can’t pick only one! Top three favorite summer scents are Annick Goutal’s Songes, Ormonde Jayne’s Frangipani, and Bond No. 9 Chinatown. I think. I’ll probably change my mind in the next 5 minutes. :)

  5. Grace Wong says:

    Favourite summer fragrance, or general hot weather scent since i live in the tropics, ;) is my Karma solid from Lush. Yep I basically smell like a Lush shop/filthy hippie all the time.

    Tweeted here:

  6. My favorite summer scent right now is Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Pineapple. The pineapple smells like summer to me but it has just enough warmth to it to keep it from smelling like a BBW mist!

    Oh, and I tweeted!

  7. Bekka says:

    Ahhhh! I just received a small sample of Snake Oil today. Can’t wait to give it a whirl. I’ve been so curious for so long.

    I quite like citrusy scents in the Summer… I really like Country Chic and Mango Mandarin at BBW. I’ve been hitting the Mindbottling HARD lately though, so I’m thinking I should get Limebottling for summer ;)

  8. Sarah says:

    Right now I’m LOVING Oceanside, I received it as a sample with a previous order and now have a full size on it’s way to me.. along with anything else from OHWTO that smelled sea-like. I have an obsession with ocean smells ;) I’m DYING to get my hands on Buttella, I should’ve scooped up a couple jars before it got so hot :(

  9. Erin says:

    For summer i love coconut scents!

  10. Leilani says:

    Favorite summer scent is OHWTO Mango Brulee! Yummy!

  11. Kendra says:

    I am dying to try Oceanside from OHWTO. Currently using DKNY Pure Verbena, and alternating DC and OHWTO scents. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. coco says:

    it’s been so long i wear any scents! one of my fav scent smells like watermelon, i can’t believe i can’t remember what it was!

  13. Belen says:

    I love fruity/citrusy scents for summer. It’s REALLY hot in here already and I’m currently alternating from OHWTO’s Raspberry Gingerale and DC’s Tilt-a-Whirl.

    I haven’t tried Snayk Oyle yet, but I’m dying to!

  14. Anne says:

    I really love the smell of orange and lemon. I’ve been intoxicated with the smell of “The Cake is a Lie” since I received it.

    I’ve not tried Buttella or the snayk oyl.

  15. Robin says:

    Maura Mae. I know, it’s more of a spring scent- but it has a peaches smell on me that I am in love with. Be Mine I am obsessed with year round. LOVE! (I effin love butella too- so great. *dies*) Thanks for the Giveaway loverlies!

  16. Eleni says:

    I love the smell of oranges for summer. All those awesome memories of playing with the garden house and running around, munching on orange ice blocks – good times :D
    I haven’t had the chance to try snayk oyl yet (what is my problem?!) and I gotta get Butella later this year, still kicking myself that I didn’t grab it before :(

  17. Ruuuuuski says:

    I pretty much use the same scent year round (lame, i know) but it’s valentino’s rock n’ rose. It’s a light rose scent that doesn’t smell like old lady.

  18. Gabrielle says:

    OHWTO’s Honey Crisp is fantastic for summer – smells yummy.

  19. I’m loving Issey Miyake’s Florale scent that just came out (I think), but I love citrus scents for summer (and have in fact been wearing Bath & Body Works White Tea Citrus on the regular). John however hates it, and prefers amber, patchouli, & frankincense smells (as I’m sure Becca noticed in my recent order because I let john pick out most of the samples because I’m.. nice). Our house is scented of flowers right now though (fresh, not heavy). I’m taking this as field research so I’m being super thorough, haha. Regardless, I am really looking forward to my order and of course wanted to enter this because I’m very curiuos about the Buttella scent, but ordered my Snayk Oyle for john and I and had to pick something unisex-ish.

    Now, time to go tweet..

  20. Alison says:

    I love OHWTO’s Oceanside! It smells just like this store I always used to go to when I went to the Outer Banks every summer! I can’t wait for my full size to come in the mail.

  21. Karla T says:

    Pink grapefruit is my fave summer scent

  22. Kat says:

    For me the best summerscent is Lavender!

    And here’s the tweet:

  23. cait says:

    My favorite summer scent is OHWTO Mermaid. There’s something really enchantingly melancholy about it…the ocean, flowers, and the salt. It’s just the best.

  24. Lani says:

    WAIT what?! I need to READ. Buttella as a SNAYKE OYL?!! OMG. Heaven has come to Earth!

    Now I really CAN slather it all over my body from head to toe! xD

    That’s the one! That one! Scratch the Pomegranate. lol

  25. Kristina says:
