Make Her Up introduces Lavanila’s Body Butters!

vl-body-butter-hi-res1.jpg

This time of year my skin gets very sad and dry.  The weather sucks all the moisture out of my skin, and it’s left thirsty and needing lotion every day.  When I was recently sent Lavanila’s new Body Butter to try for the site, I was absolutely thrilled. I’ve always been a fan of Lavanila’s scents, and to have it in a Body Butter is a major bonus!

I tried the Vanilla Lavender, and it’s such a wonderful body butter (and I’ve tried a lot). It goes on smooth, and dries completely – not leaving your skin greasy.  It softens my skin – and makes it feel healthy and nourished all day.  The scent is strong, but not overpowering in the least. It’s a beautiful, soft smell – that works all day long!

THINK: The healthiest butters on earth.

WHAT THEY ARE:
Skin food. They’ve already made your fragrance ritual a healthy one. Now Lavanila is turning its attention to your moisturizing routine by introducing a new line of 100% natural Body Butters, deeply nourishing, non-greasy formulas packed with some of the most skin beneficial, anti-oxidant rich vitamins and minerals on earth and lightly scented with the natural Lavanila fragrances you can’t get enough of.

Unlike traditional fragranced body butters and lotions, The Healthy Body Butter uses an advanced, restorative formula made with 100% natural ingredients and survival molecules to lock in a healthy dose of 30 essential vitamins and minerals. Blending skin-soothing botanicals and powerful anti-oxidants with the purity of Lavanila’s signature fragrances, this non-greasy, instantly absorbed formula melts into skin for luxurious hydration and softly scented nourishment.

The Body Butters are available in each of the five Lavanila scents, all of which are formulated with 100% natural ingredients such as skin-soothing pure essential oils, fresh fruit extracts and botanicals. The scents include:

Pure Vanilla – The perfect vanilla. More vanilla bean than vanilla cookie, this superbly clean scent is a must have for any vanilla addict. Contains notes of: Madagascar vanilla, freesia, heliotrope and vanilla orchid.
Vanilla Grapefruit – An uplifting citrus. Sweetly seductive and kissed by sunshine, this unusually crisp fragrance is destined to become a cult classic. Contains notes of: grapefruit, lime, bergamot, orange, cedarwood, heliotrope and Madagascar vanilla.
Vanilla Blossom – A wild floral bouquet. Dangerously seductive, this flirtatious floral is unexpectedly clean and sophisticated. Contains notes of: crushed orange blossom, rose, jasmine, karo karounde petals, nutmeg, osmanthus, lemon and Madagascar vanilla.
Vanilla Coconut – Paradise found. Careful and tropical, this exotic blend transports you to an island of healthy delights. Contains notes of: fresh coconut oil, tiare flower and Madagascar vanilla.
Vanilla Lavender – A clean, romantic blend. Peaceful and serene, an oasis of tranquility awaits. Contains notes of Spanish lavender, rose absolute, violet leaf and Madagascar vanilla.
