Okay, I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I play favourites when it comes to my skin. I’m so OCD when it comes to the skin on my face, but I’m pretty horrible the rest. With summer fast approaching, (or is it here already?) I decided to break this bad habit and finally start paying some attention to these poor neglected areas. I wanted something creamy and very moisturizing, but light and fast absorbing.
Enter Lavanila. All of Lavanila products are without: parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, phthalates, GMO, and triclosan. The body butter itself (I bought Vanilla Passion Fruit) smells absolutely DIVINE. Like, I’m not even kidding how wicked this body butter smells. It has a very creamy texture, but was absorbed by my skin very, very quickly without any greasy residue. A 2.7mL tube will cost you $12 which is admittedly a little on the expensive side, but a little goes a LONG way. My only real complaint is that Sephora only carries this dinky sized tube with the exception of Vanilla Coconut. Great for those who want to give the brand a try, definitely not great for returning customers. Would I re-purchase? Yes.
