10/10 Would Recommend

I suffer from eczema and it flares up really badly in the winter. I have been using the body butter and have not experienced a flare up since! Baby soft and moisturized skin all day long. Absolutely love it!

--Nathifa R.

For over 30 years, I've put Vaseline on my face to protect it from cold weather, keep it from getting dry. But since 2017, I have been using this body butter on my face, and I haven't had any breakouts, my skin doesn't get dry, and I love how it doesn't leave that greasy residue that Vaseline did. It just melts right in and has given me a newfound confidence. Same face but new skin!

--Dayona E.
