You might have read about my previous blog post on Lemongrass House (Click here) last year and I've been using and loving some of their products for some time. I love their stuff and their philosophy! And now they love me back and the nice peeps at Lemongrass House has passed me some products to try out! Yay! I got a bunch of products and I'm slowly trying them out one by one....and now, I've officially found the body butter with the best texture!!!
Okay, I'm obsessed with body butter since I have very dry skin and awhile back, I featured the Boots Fairtrade Rosehip Body Butter and it's awesome and now I've got another favorite and it's the Lemongrass House Lavender & Rosemary Body Butter. They're both awesome but in different ways. And no, I didn't say the Lemongrass House body butter is awesome cos they sent me the products cos I can very well not feature it. I've already spent loads of money buying their products previously (I got their lavender shampoo and condition, body cream, diffuser and shower gel) and I waxed lyrical about their stuff before as you can see in my previous post last year.
They really do have great quality products. In fact, their products are so good that Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons in Phuket and some many world class hotels and resorts in Thailand and US have been stocking their bathroom with Lemongrass House products (though with their own hotel branding). I'm really loving their body butter and I wonder why I didn't try it earlier! Anyway, I just picked up the products like a couple of hours ago and I slathered it on awhile ago and I love it so much that I must about it like NOW cos I'm excited and impressed!
So, why so good? The texture is AWESOME!!! Now, most body butter I've tried have got a heavy texture and the consistency is very thick as it's rich in moisture and oil but the Lemongrass House Body Butter has a delightfully light texture. It's actually very fluffy and it's got a texture that's like whipped cream and it's so easy to spread compared to the usual body butter. You MUST go check out the tester at the shop cos it's really very different. I think it should be called Body Whipped Cream instead cos it's so light and fluffy.
I got the Lavender & Rosemary one cos I'm a sucker for Lavender and it's such a pleasure to use cos the aroma is just really magnificent! It's a very nice treat after work and it smells so good that I can't decide whether to cup my hands together to inhale the nice scent or busy myself slathering my skin with it. So I did both, a bit retarded I know. Repeatedly massaging the body butter in while stealing whiff of the smell from my hands. And it's not your typical Lavender scent cos the Rosemary gives it a tingling minty zing that's very refreshing yet relaxing. And the best thing is that it gets absorbed very fast and don't be fooled by the light fluffy texture cos it's very moisturizing and even my dry bits like the elbows get really soft after use. And the best thing is that it's a no-nasty formula cos it's sulphate and paraben free so it's free of harsh ingredients and carcinogens. Most of their products are actually about 70% organic and you know I'm a major major sucker for organic anything! So this is one awesome gem that I will definitely buy after I finish it. In fact, I'm gonna tell my friends about it cos the texture is just incredible.
So right now, I have 2 body butter I love and I alternate it according to my moods! But really, if you're into body butter, you ought to seriously try this one out. It's light yet potent! I'll be using this at night cos in the day, I actually keep their Lavender Body Cream (I bought that) in my office and I apply it to my very dry shins everyday and I have to hide it cos my colleagues have a tendency to steal it cos I've got them hooked on it as well. Now I've got the perfect day and night combo! But really, if you pass by their shops, just try it out! (They've just opened their fourth outlet at Raffles City 3rd floor, the other outlets are at Orchard 313, Liang Court and Parco Millenia Walk) Ohhh I'm one happy bunny tonight :)
