I can't believe it's not shea butter
Let me start off with the disclaimer: Shea butter scares me.
I have tried out any number of shea butter moisturizers for review because I hear of its miraculous benefits, and yet one leaves me feeling slimier and smellier than the next. So when I hear about a product with _____ butter in it, I'm a little hesitant.
Well yay for Hellomellow
and its founder, massage therapist Tracy Feldstein, for giving me a delicious alternative with 100% natural skin care products that make use of avocado and mango butter instead. They make a body butter
(paraben-free!) that's just the right texture, just the right thickness, just the right not-slimy. And oh my lord do these products all smell scrumptious.
Aromatherapeutic blends like Relax
and my favorite, Rejuvenate
are all right up a frazzled mom's alley. But if your skin is already as moisturized can be (in which case, damn you) the same scents are available as body scrub
or even lip balm
. If you can't choose, go for one of adorably presented gift sets
-- especially nice if you've got a shower coming up or a weekend invitation with your mother-in-law.
Now there's a reason to get a whole case of the Relax stuff right there. -LizFind 100% natural skincare products at Hellomellow and save 20% off your entire purchase
