After hearing lots of fantastic things about this little block of body butter, I popped into Lush to grab ‘Buffy’ and find out what all the fuss was about.
Lush’s body butters work differently to the usual ones you find on the market; instead of being a cream in a tub, Lush’s are in solid form, packed with loads of exfoliating and moisturising ingredients. Buffy uses ground rice and almonds to exfoliate skin, whilst essential oils, cocoa and shea butters replenish moisture.
After washing, while your skin is still wet, rub Buffy (or any other of Lush’s other body butters) in circular motions wherever you want to reveal smooth, moisturised skin; I love using this over my whole body, but particularly on my legs that get quite dry. After rinsing your skin and getting out of the bath/shower, just pat dry your skin so as not to rub away all of that lovely moisture!
Buffy is really scrubby and does a great job of exfoliating skin. Whilst using this, skin begins to glow as circulation is improved. After rinsing, you will feel a slight oily residue on your skin; I personally love to be able to feel the moisture on my skin, but bare it in mind if you like yours to sink in immediately as Buffy may not be for you.
After drying off, skin feels amazingly smooth and soft – I adore it!! The moisture lasts all day long and really soothes my dry, irritable skin, making it feel incredibly comfortable.
Buffy is great for people with dry or sensitive skin. It’s also a little miracle for those of you that can’t be bothered to moisturise straight out of the bath or shower. Personally, I like to get straight into my pyjamas after a warm bath!
The only downside of this product for me is that I want to repurchase the larger size as I love it so much, but it’s difficult to store as Lush’s tins only fit the small body butters! I currently have mine on a little soap dish at the side of the bath, but it means I can’t take it with me if I go away anywhere.
You can buy Buffy from Lush stores nationwide or online here; £6.25 for the small one, and £10.75 for the larger.
What are your favourites from Lush? Do you love Buffy as much as I do?
