Summer 2021 will forever be remembered as the summer when outside finally opened back up. But one thing I'll never forget is how the blazing hot, swampy weather made me want to go back inside voluntarily.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm definitely someone who loves super warm weather, but what I don't fancy is high-level humidity.

Typically, I'm an open-the-windows-and-turn-on-the-fan kinda girl, but with the air being so muggy and damp in New York City this summer, I've had to turn my AC on nearly every day to feel comfortable — and it's drying the hell out of my skin.

Of course, I use my regular lotion twice a day after I shower, but sometimes I need a little something extra. And this single-ingredient moisturizer is just what my skin has been yearning for.

With only virgin organic unrefined African shea butter in the formula (one of the best ingredients ever in my humble opinion), Buttah's Whipped Body Butter packs a serious punch. Plus, shea is naturally rich in vitamins A, B, and E, which not only nourish my skin, but together, this team helps balance out uneven skin tone over time.

To use, I simply scrape a little bit out, rub it in, and let it melt into my skin after I get out of the shower — or I apply some to any dry patches I notice throughout the day.

What I love most about this lotion is not only the fact that it leaves my skin feeling ultra-supple all day long, but it gives my body this amazing, gorgeous glow few other moisturizers have in the past.

Aside from the gazillion and one benefits I already mentioned, I also appreciate that a little bit of this butter truly goes a long way.

That said, if you decide to order Buttah's Whipped Body Butter, you may be stunned to see the small size of the jar when it first arrives. But believe me, it will be a staple on your bathroom vanity for a long time before you need to restock it.
