Description: Our Raspberry and Vanilla Organic Body Butter smells and feels so decadent, you might have to keep reminding yourself that it's not for eating! But it's a real treat for your skin-- organic shea butter moisturizes deeply, delivering essential protecting lipids to the skin, while organic coconut oil with retained coconut meat keep this formula smooth but not greasy. Organic sweet almond oil softens and soothes skin, and macadamia nut oil protects and heals, while both oils deliver a bounty of essential fatty acids to your skin. Top that off with luscious-smelling organic raspberry and vanilla extracts, and you've got the perfect dessert for your skin. Unlike other body butters, ours is not water-based, so it has a different consistency than you might be used to. But that's a good thing-- it is best described as having the consistency and feel of home-made frosting. Just pure, whipped, buttery goodness. A little bit goes a really long way-- that is if you can resist reapplying it every 15 minutes because it smells and feels so good!

This is incredible stuff! The way it comes out of the jar in a big fluffy poof then turns to liquid when I rub it in my hands is fascinating. At first the oily-ness was hard to get used to. But like other "clean ingredient" products by Bubble & Bee (deodorant for one) I have to learn how to use them. I used the Jasmine butter for a little while then stopped while I tried to learn what I might be doing wrong. Never give up going natural! We are so conditioned to the way the synthetic junk goes on and feels. When I went back to the B & B body butter I realized I have to touch several different areas on my arm for instance, and then rub all those areas together. Verses putting my hand that is loaded with oil onto one spot and then trying to rub that around.
I love lots about the body butters - I've used orange vanilla before. They do truly last all day and moisturize way beyond a regular lotion. However, they are very oily and take time after a shower to soak in. I have to only put them on when I know I can wait 10 minutes or so before putting clothes on, and be careful to not let my hair touch my greased-up shoulders. I'd like it to be a little more user-friendly to be at 5 stars.
I didn't love this scent however. I do like fruit scents in general, but this one disappointed. Although I know it's super natural raspberry oil, it smells almost fake to me, like a scented plastic toy. I am sure it's because I have some association with this smell, and because I'm used to the actual fake scents in other raspberry-scented lotions. Since most people love the smell, I'll say the people who might want to pick another scent are those who are hoping either for the smell of a fresh raspberry or the smell of a Bath and Body Works-type of lotion. It's not that, so if you want that you may be disappointed.
I love this lotion. It doesn't leave me with a greasy feeling, which I simply cannot stand. I wet the backs of my hands and rub in a small amount of body butter very well. It's very moisturizing, perfect for dry winter skin!
It smells so good I want to eat it. Instead I smear it all over myself. I'd been using quality ingredient lotion but still water-based. The butta is definitely thicker but who cares, it feels fabulous.
Great moisturizing great smelling, need I say more!
This lotion absorbs well and smells great.
It works much better after using the Apple salt scrub and it smells GREAT!
