Berries, Butter and a Giveaway

The good news is that Maryam's hand made shea monoi whipped body butter is an exceptional treat. And that's an understatement. It is far superior to other, way more expensive products. I can't believe that I'm writing this, but my beloved Korres body butter doesn't measure up and neither do Bliss or Fresh products. The texture is phenomenal. It sinks right into the skin, nourishing and softening it. My super dry winter skin has never felt so soft.

The all-natural ingredients include: shea butter, monoi de tahiti oil (that's the stuff in Nars' Monoi body oil), cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, goat milk, vitamin E and silk fibers. No wonder that the results are so good.

The bad news is that the tub I have is in the pomegranate and wildberries scent. I'm not a fan of red fruit scents, and this one is very berry, and the scent is so strong that it refused to leave my skin the next day and clung to my jeans. A berry lover would rejoice with something like this. I don't. I'll have to get myself a tub of one of the more delicate fragrances. And probably also the unscented one. And I'd go straight for the large size (16 oz), because it's that good. But I can't deal with this fruitiness.

However, my loss is your gain. I'll do a giveaway. Leave a comment if you're berry-friendly and want to be part of the drawing. Next week one of you will get this 8 oz tub of body butter.
