Ellovi's Butter: A "Clean" Body Butter Here to Change Your World

*This post contains PR samples.
It snowed today. Sadly as a dry skinned girl that means one thing ... that the season of perpetual sensitive, itchy, dry and sometimes flaky skin is upon us whether we're ready or not. Although I make a point of investing money in good skin care products all year round, there is no more critical time than during the chilliest months. As far as I'm concerned this is the time to stock up on incredibly effective moisturizers, and if said moisturizers are natural then so much the better. 

Given the season I was thrilled when Ellovi's Butter* landed on my doorstep. Born from a desire to rid skin care of unnecessary, unhealthy and/or harsh ingredients, Butter* is formulated from a short and sweet list of plants all aimed at maximum hydration. Whereas 1,000 ingredients are banned in European skin care, the United States has banned only 9, a truly eye-opening statistic that has made me think more critically about what I put directly on my body's largest organ. 

Unlike many hydrating body butters and creams containing water, an ingredient that provides hydration on a short-term basis, Butter* focuses on long-term hydration as evidenced by the list of ingredients that packs a punch. I've been using Butter* on healing eczema patches, dry spots, all over my face/body and (when needed) even as a mask to give my skin the additional hydration it craves. Despite the salve consistency of this product in the tub, Butter* warms up against the skin and is so emollient that it absorbs almost instantaneously despite the oil heavy list of ingredients.

Apart from the obvious benefits of a natural body butter free of harsh chemicals, parabens, secret ingredients and a testing process that involves animals Ellovi's Butter* is also incredibly luxe (lets be honest, I like a little luxury). Housed in a hefty glass container printed with chic black and girly neon pink, the butter not only hydrates the skin but smells heavenly while doing so. Although Butter* contains no perfumes or dyes, the combination of natural ingredients creates the most delicious hint of freshly picked cherries and almonds when applied to the skin.

Ellovi hopes to introduce us to an entire range of pure beauty and skin care products, and if they're all like Butter* I can guarantee that I'll be in love with each and every one of them. Have you tried Ellovi's Butter*
