Hand creams are my BFFs!! I could never be without them. But who’s got the time to keep slathering hand creams when you want to soak in every minute of your travelling destination. I needed an intensive moisturizing product, which I could use on my dry prone areas. Hence, I picked up Nourish Organic’s Body butter as one product could be used in multi-purpose ways.
The body butter comes in a cute tub plastic packaging. This was one of the pointers to pick it up, as I wanted a travel friendly and sturdy packaging. I avoided picking up a tube based body cream, as I did not want the risk of spilling. The body butter is off white in color and has very thick texture. Even with the high temperatures I did not find it melting. The body butter comes in 5 different fragrances, in which I picked up the lavender and mint fragrance. The fragrance does feel like an amalgamation of both the aromas.
3.6 oz. (102 g) tube is priced at $9.99.
My experience with Nourish Organic Body Butter Lavender and Mint:
I used this body butter everyday. A tiny pinch of the body butter was sufficient to use as it melts with body heat. But it was difficult to blend the body butter as it has very thick texture. Once the body butter spreads on the skin it never gets completely absorbed. Instead it leaves an oily layer on the skin.
As I have a very dry skin I did not face any issues, as I do need extensive hydration. But this might not be suitable for oily or normal skin type. Another difficulty while using this body butter is after application it is not convenient to handle any articles or paper. The body butter leaves behind oily imprints.
The product claims to provide skin-softening benefits, which I did observe. Even after walking in all the heat and sun my heels stayed soft without any cracks. Also this body butter took care of the dryness in my elbows and knees. Once I apply this body butter it does not require any reapplication as it forms a layer on the skin. I found it very convenient to apply it in the evening over Lush’s African Body Conditioner
The contents of shea butter along with coconut and olive oils were very helpful for my dry skin. I found it to be extremely hydrating and nourishing. The product claims to minimize signs of aging as it contains vitamin E antioxidants. I did not find that my hands had profound skin tautness but the softness was extremely visible.
The fragrance of the body butter is mild but lingers on the skin. It is not very overwhelming. In the summers I can resort to use this body butter only during the evenings. However during winters it would be very beneficial for my skin type. Overall, this body butter did help in providing intensive moisturization that I had been looking for.

Would I buy Nourish Organic Body Butter Lavender and Mint again?
Yes I would like to buy this body butter again but in a different fragrance. It would be more useful for me as a spot treatment product than a complete body cream.
