Vanilla Guava Body Butter ($29) by Korres is a breath of fresh air for dry skin, no matter where on your body it is hiding out. A dose of body butter can soften, moisturize, and rejuvenate your skin everywhere, but it is especially effective on those tough to treat spots. We all know that dry and cracked skin on the elbows and heels can be almost impossible to soften, but with Vanilla Guava Body Butter those once off-limits patches of skin can soon be soft and touchable again. As this thick and creamy body butter smoothes over your skin and soaks in, you can feel that it is working to heal any dry areas and is promoting healthy skin all over your body.
Even if you do not have overly dry skin, this soothing cream will leave your skin feeling refreshed and silky smooth. Lathering up after a warm shower helps the body butter work its magic to the fullest extent as it locks in moisture and adds to a general state of relaxation. With Vanilla Guava Body Butter you can feel spa-fresh every day. Even the sweet, yet delicate scent enhances the overall sensation of skin wellbeing.
Korres’ Vanilla Guava Body Butter is an enjoyable way to give your skin a luxurious treat, without breaking the bank. The sunflower, almond, and avocado oils provide beneficial nutrients to please your skin as the vanilla and guava extracts please your sense of smell. The deep moisturizing capabilities make this body butter a worthwhile investment for your skin’s health and appearance. Finally winning the battle against dry elbows and heals alone is worth the cost of the bottle, but within one bottle also lies the key to soft and gorgeous skin.
