The weather is changing at the moment, and with the onset of the first autumn chill comes our least favourite thing: dry skin. At The Amazing Blog we know that it is important to maintain our skin care routine, despite our busy schedules, to prevent the weather from affecting our skin. So, we have been trying out the Whipped Shea Body Butter by Pure Thoughts to banish any dry skin and keep our skin supple and moisturised.
We tried out the Tangerine and Jojoba flavoured body butter and the smell is amazing. It is really citrusy and the scent lingers on your skin long after application. This citrus scent is warm and tangy which has a calming effect and lifts the spirits. The body butter also comes in Lavender and Jojoba and also an unscented version.
Pure Thoughts have an all natural philosophy, and believe that natural skin care should mean only the best ingredients. The butter itself is composed of 100% natural ingredients and contains Shea butter, jojoba oil, tangerine oil and limonene… and that’s it! It has no nasties, such as parabens or added chemicals that can irritate the skin, so this butter is perfect for those with sensitive and dry skin. This also means that the product is gentle enough to be used on the face and body on a regular basis.
Shea butter is a wonderful ingredient that is rich and luxurious on the skin. It is particularly helpful for soothing dry and damaged skin due to its repairing properties - perfect for this cold weather! The jojoba oil moisturises and also restores balance to neglected skin. Not only does the butter soothe dry skin, it can also be used to relieve sunburn, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and it can help those who suffer from eczema and psoriasis, making this an all-round great beauty buy.
The butter is almost balm like, so only a small amount of product is needed to nourish the skin. Despite being an oil based product, the butter does not feel greasy on the skin; instead the skin feels instantly softer and more hydrated. This would be a fantastic product to apply before bed time so you wake up with soft and supple skin.
The Whipped Shea Butter retails for £11.95 for an 85g, which we think is fantastic value for money for an all natural product, made of the finest quality ingredients.
