The body butter that I feel in love with: Ellovi butter

So happy to be back on blogging after the summer. Hello everyone!
If you want to see what I was up to these past few weeks, follow me on Instagram for some up to date pictures.
Ok back to business. Today I would like to talk in more detail about the body butter from Ellovi. Ellovi is a green beauty brand from California that I came across many times, but actually never tested.
Taking care of the body is as important as having a great skincare ritual. However, I have to admit that I am not always as rigourous as I should be. Will the Butter* from Ellovi help me change my habit for the good? Read below!

Product name: Butter Chamomille Blossom
Texture: balmy
Certified: no
For: all skin types
Price: $26.00

My opinion

Despite all what the beauty market has to offer in terms of body products, I often believe that simplicity is a winner. And this could really be applied to the Butter from Ellovi. If you are a faithful reader of Mademoiselle Nature, you may remember that I love oil/balm textures, but I also dislike the too greasy film that some products leave behind- it is always somethng I am cautious about when it comes to choose beauty and body products in general.

Ellovi butter is a gorgeous balm made of only 6 ingredients! Let me pick out three of them. Its main component is Mango butter, which is a nice surprise, since it has exceptional nourish and restore features - perfect for the body (and hair!). Rich is Omegas 9 and phytosterols, it helps to deeply regenerate dry skin. The next two ingredients are also great dry skin fighters - Coconut oil and Shea butter. They both contain insaponifiables and teroenic acids that help skin to heal and calm.
The texture of Ellovi butter is lovely as it literally melts into a very creamy oil that massages so well into the skin. It is really easy to scoop a little amount out which makes it very convenient for application. Skin is left silky glowing!

The scent is great too! I had picked the Chamomille Blossom (since then, their range has extended to Key lime & Copaiba, sounds dreamy!) and waoh, I am completely in love with it. It is such a delicate and refreshing smell, very light at the same time. It is really the kind of scent you want to wear in spring/summer days althought I could definitely wear it all year long. It features the lovely Tangerine essential oil, which is probably one of the best duo partners to Chamomille. The butter may be a tad expensive but I am really impressed by the product - simple, effective and pleasant to use.

... an incredibly soothing body treat that smells like heaven!
