A personal take on beauty, life and dreams.

Beautiful Body Butters

Soft, luxurious and yummy-smelling. Body butter warms the cockles of my heart. It is a sweet addiction!

Natural ingredients like shea butter, honey and coconut make them all the more special. Slather it on after a warm bath and you’ll wake up with baby soft skin in the morning. I’ve been through quite a few, but these ones steal the show.

Tree Hut Almond & Honey Body Butter

I discovered the US brand Tree Hut whilst browsing the website. Almond and honey are two of the best skincare fragrances in my book, so I couldn’t wait to test their stuff. What caught my attention is that their products are paraben free. Also very cost effective – at R79 for 200ml. The consistency is rich and creamy, best for bedtime use. Some of the ingredients are certified organic shea butter, sweet almond oil, honey, and cocoa butter. Smells uber delicious!  Click here to check it out. They have other lovely variants like Lavender and Chamomile, and Vanilla Spice.

Victorian Garden Double Rose & Rose Scented Geranium Body Butter

Proudly South African, and organic. What more do you need? Truly one of the best moisturizers I’ve used in a very long time. It has become part of my night-time ritual. Shea butter blended with Jojoba and organic Rosehip and English Rose oil offers maximum hydration and anti-aging benefits. If you like soft floral scents, then you are going to adore this. I have so much love for this product. R119 for 200ml.

Victorian Garden Quince & Orange Body Butter

Summer in a tub! Perfect for smoothing onto parched, tender sunkissed skin. Quince seed is rich in vitamins and minerals. It is one of the oldest known cultivated herbs and was favoured by Queen Catherine. Well, if it’s good enough for her…it’s certainly good enough for me. R119 for 200ml. For more information on the Victorian Garden range, visit their website on

Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Butter

Smooth and lightly textured, ideal for daytime use. Melts into the skin easily, with no greasy residue. Contains organic olive oil from Italy, and community trade soya oil from Brazil. The pretty fragrance lasts for hours too. You can even use it in instead of perfume. Just lovely. R125 for 200ml.
