I have to admit, I am usually one to forget to put on body lotion. If I do, its usually just on my hands. It’s weird, because every time I actually decide to put some on, I end up loving how soft my skin feels, so you would think I’d make it a habit, right? Wrong.
A few weeks ago, Fortune Cookie Soap, who I am a big fan of, asked me for my opinion on some of their new body butters, which they call Whipped Cream. Now, while I don’t always use lotion all over, I do use it constantly on my hands, because my fingertips get dry and cracked really easy and it’s not pretty (especially if you have a hardcore macro lens and take polish swatches!) Lotion is kinda essential.
My current favorite lotion is a discontinued lotion from MAC, their honey lotion. It’s AMAZING, but, like I said, discontinued. It works great on my hands, but it’s a bit thick for all over use. That being said, I was definitely pleasently surprised when these new Whipped Cream body butters came in the mail!
These have a whipped texture (hence the name), they remind me of the texture of Bath & Body Works Body Butters a lot. They are nice and thick, but sink into the skin really quickly, so your skin doesn’t feel tacky for more than half a minute. This is a HUGE plus for me, because I think that’s one of the reasons I’m not big on all-over lotion- I hate that tacky lotiony feel, I like the after effect!
Another great thing about these is that the scent actually lasts for quite some time, unlike a lot of other brands, where the scent fades away rather quickly. Also, they’re all natural. Awesome.
These come in five scents:
Chocolate Moose: This one smells like a lot of chocolate scents out there. Not personally my favorite, but that’s mainly because I have never ever found a chocolate scent that I actually like!
Cucumber My Melons: Smells exactly like the Bath & Body Works one :)
Cupcake: If you have ever made vanilla cake from a store bought mix, this smells EXACTLY like the batter. mmmm!
Pretty in Plumeria: Normally my least favorite scents are floral ones. They give me headaches. This flower is the only exception- I LOVE the way this smells! Sweet, slightly floral (but not overpowering) and fresh. Love, love love.
Something Tropical: By far, this is my favorite. I was sent testers of these, and the label for this one was hand written, “something tropical”. I kept wondering what the final name would be, because I assumed this was one of those moments: “cant think of a name for this one, I’ll just write ‘Something Tropical’ until we figure it out!” I laughed when I saw it was the actual name :) This one is mouthwatering, it smells like a tropical vacation in a tub, without smelling like sunscreen or ocean. I have this one next to me at my desk and I’m constantly putting it on. If you like fruity and tropical scents, you need this!!
Because these were just released, they are selling them on sale for $8.98 instead of the normal price of $10.99 until next weekend (1/22 or 1/23). If you end up picking some up, let me know!! :)
