There’s something magical about a Winter sunset. What a great way to end the day!

Battle of Winter Skin


Winters in the NE can be brutal and keeping skin moisturized is a priority. Lotions are a joke and thick creams require time to absorb, they can be messy and stain clothing.

The search began to find something that provided moisture without being too thick and greasy; after trying a couple products I wanted to share my findings.

Behold, the battle of the butter! Whipped shea butter have a “cult” following for its ability to moisturize without being greasy, a plant-based fat (nut butter) great for most skin types, treats eczema, psoriasis and the whipped consistency “melts” into to the skin quickly.

The first product came from Little Soap Store https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLittleSoapStore?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=615872331. There are two sizes available and I opted for the small which turned out to be the perfect travel size. It appeared stiff in the beginning but after sitting for a couple weeks it has softened to a texture I could work with and applies easily. Pay a visit to her shop and let her know you found out about her on this blog.

I did a google search and discovered Naturals by Nezzy https://naturalsbynezzy.com/?olsPage=products. I purchased this during her holiday sale and scored this for 50% off and have hit “jar” on this product and since repurchased it in the Jasmine scent. This by far has been exactly what I’ve wanted in a product and I’m a loyal customer. Check out her website for this and her other “handmade” products and let her know you heard about her on this blog.
