Application Of The Weleda Skin Food Body Butter.

Presented in a green jar made of 85% recycled glass, you can easily access the product by twisting off the cap before applying. The first thing i was surprised about is the texture as typically body butters are usually solid and you have to warm the product up before applying, not this one! The creamy texture instantly feels comforting when massaging into the skin while those rich emollient butters with the fragranced aromatic Lavender and Orange add to the intensive skin nourishment you will experience. I would suggest to only apply a little (a tiny amount goes a long way) with applications as even though it states being non-greasy if you apply too much you might slightly feel oily, but i was quite impressed on the long-lasting nourishment that helps to condition and moisturise the skin wherever you choose to apply. The Weleda Skin Food Body Butter is priced at £19,75 and available here: Weleda Skin Food Body Butter x Neil.
