I was pleasantly surprised when I first tried the Rebirth Body Butter by Beauty in the Raw. I have to be honest- the butter did NOT look appealing at all when I first opened it. Maybe it melted in transit, maybe that's just how it looks but my first impression was, well...not good. However, my mama always taught me not to "judge a book by it's cover" so I took one inhalation of the inviting aroma and decided to give it a go!
I am so glad that I did. What this butter lacked in esthetics it makes up for in efficacy. I scooped out a nickel sized amount and that covered my entire body. This golden body butter is thick and 'whipped' so it has an interesting, almost bubbly texture (at least mine did!). You apply it on freshly damp skin to seal in water hydration and to make sure that it penetrates. Follow the directions and apply directly on straight-out-of-the-shower wet skin and it goes on like a dream. It soaks in just enough to feel deeply hydrating but not so much that it leaves the skin surface feeling devoid of a layer of protection. I do recommend waiting a few minutes after application to ensure that it does fully absorb before getting dressed to avoid any oil transfer onto your clothing or bedding.
As for the ingredients, check them out below! This small batch formula is cruelty-free, vegan, non-GMO, contains no artificial fragrance, preservatives, fillers, or water, and is raw. Chock full of skin loving, certified organic butters/oils like mango seed, shea, hokum, avocado, and pumpkin. The unrefined nature of this product helps to ensure that the plants' antioxidants and phytochemical remain active until you use it. The aroma was light and fresh yet dissipated quickly. It smelled like lavender to me!
This is a great product for the prevention and healing of dry skin. It made a HUGE difference in my parched legs and was especially beneficial after shaving- leaving my skin smooth with a subtle sheen. I need all the help I can get during the summer!
