I was never the body butter girl. Besides being annoyed by the name (isn't it just cream?), I always had a difficult time incorporating it into my skin care routine, especially since it's meant to be lathered on immediately after showering (ain't nobody got time for that!) and usually comes in a large, non-travel-friendly jar.
But when a dear, kind soul gifted me with Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter for my birthday this year, things changed. Life changed. In addition to smelling incredible (imagine a coconut-honey pie sprinkled with vanilla-scented rainbows), this butter's heavenly whipped texture glides on like a dream. And thanks to the inclusion of natural ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil, the paraben-, glycols- and silicone-free formula keeps skin mega moisturized for hours. What I'm trying to say is that I want to swim in this stuff.
