With winter well and truly upon us it's time to dig out those products that keep dry skin at bay during the colder weather.
DHC are a brand I've only ever tried through Glossybox but when I heard about their new body butter I knew it was just perfect for me. Kicking off the new year and launching January 1st is DHC's new Olive Body Butter*.
What www.dhcuk.co.uk says:
Cult Japanese beauty brand DHC has introduced Olive Body Butter, a luxurious, high performance moisturiser packed with softening botanicals including shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil.
The non-greasy formula absorbs quickly into the skin for immediate results. Smooth over the body daily after showering or whenever skin feels dry, paying particular attention to dry patches. For truly great results, slough away dead skin cells beforehand using DHC’s Olive Corn Body Scrub & Polish to double the skin softening effect
In my experience light, thin lotions really don't cut it for me. Especially on those extra dry areas like my hands and elbows. Generally more thicker creams come with the downside of leaving a greasy feeling on the skin long after application. If you find yourself feeling the same this new addition from DHC might just solve your dry skin problems.
Housed in a simple plastic pot this thick, almost solid body butter comes with a light floral fragrance that isn't too offensive or overpowering.
Upon first application of this I knew I was onto a winner. It's a heavy duty moisturiser and a little bit goes a long way. It spreads easily over the skin and sinks in straight away. Despite the numerous oils it contains it doesn't leave any residue behind, so you aren't left with that greasy, sticky feeling which usually comes from thick creams. That makes it perfect for me as I cannot stand having anything 'sitting' on the skin.
It quickly worked my way into my daily routine and now it sits on my bedside table for whenever I feel like my skin needs a hydration top up. Perfect!
