Ellovi's butters aren't new to me, but I've been trying out two new-to-me varieties: the Blossom Butter* and Mint Chocolate Lip Butter*. Keep reading for more on these two, plus stay tuned till the end to enter for a chance to try them yourself!
Chamomile Blossom Butter
Chamomile and citrus are two of my favorite scents, so picking this butter was a no-brainer. Delicately scented with mandarin and Italian chamomile essential oils, it's a beautiful floral and fruity mix that's perfect for this time of year. There's also an underlying sweetness that comes through from the coconut oil.
The other three ingredients (in case you were keeping count!) are mango seed oil, shea butter, and non-GMO corn starch. All this goodness blends together to create a rich body butter that's extremely nourishing to the skin, but not greasy. Mango seed oil often gives products an amazing dry oil feel and I do find Blossom absorbs a little better and leaves a slightly drier finish on the skin compared to Ellovi's Original Butter - without mango seed oil - which I've used previously. It's no less hydrating than the original, but, because it absorbs so well, it's a product I'm happy to slather all over my body, whereas I often find myself reserving richer butters like this for just extra dry spots like feet and elbows.
The butter is beautifully packaged in a heavy glass jar and, because it's so rich and concentrated, a little bit really does go a long way.
Mint Chocolate Lip Butter
With similar ingredients, it should come as no surprise that Ellovi's lip butters are just as fabulous as the body butters! The Mint Chocolate, specifically, is a blend of mango seed oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, cocoa oil, and peppermint. Without any waxes, it's a little softer than many other lip balm formulas, but extremely smooth and buttery.
The Mint Chocolate scent, reminiscent of mint chocolate chip ice cream and After Eight bars, is just delicious. It's sweet and yummy, but in a very "real" way -- not at all fake or candy-like. The mint gives just the slightest tingle to the lips when first applied, and the balm does a great job keeping my lips feeling soft and smooth all day long.
