The Julia Roberts-Approved Moisturizer Actually Comes as a Body Butter
Thank goodness spring is finally here. I don’t know about you, but I’m completely ready to start filling my shopping cart with Easter Peeps, one-pieces, meds for my pollen allergies, and whatever it is that people buy in the middle of spring when flowers are blooming and bunnies are hopping. This has been an exhausting winter filled with virus panics and royal bombshells, and I’m sure I speak for many when I say I’m ready to leave it all behind for some warm weather must-haves.
However, there’s just one thing I’ve used all winter of which I’m not quite ready to let go, and no, it’s not a surgical mask (which you should really stop buying, by the way): Come whatever season, I’m holding onto my Weleda Skin Food Body Butter for dear life. Yes, you read that right — Weleda Skin Food, a.k.a. the Julia Roberts-loved tube of pure moisturizing magic, is also available as a fantastic body lotion. Even better news, though? It’s super affordable at just $19, and you can find it on Amazon.
It’s not exactly surprising how great the Weleda Body Butter is, considering that the brand’s famous Skin Food counts Roberts, Adele, Victoria Beckham, and tons of makeup artists as fans. Think of it as Skin Food's cousin, only softer, less sticky, more spreadable, but still full of hydration and whatever magic it is that Weleda pulls to make your skin as smooth as a spring-born baby. Despite its rich formula, though, the body butter never feels heavy — in fact, it absorbs so quickly that I can even easily pull on my skinny jeans after I use it at the gym.
It’s the only product that has managed to fully moisturize my perennially dry legs that suffer from severe ingrown hair, without leading to more acne or small keratosis pilaris bumps on my arms. I love the Weleda Skin Food Body Butter so much that I’ve devoted a specific space on my shower stall shelf just for it, and it’s clear that I’m not the only one who feels that way. Shoppers on Amazon have been praising this highly rated lotion, with one calling it “everything.”
“I rarely leave online reviews but I have to rave about this body butter,” said a reviewer. “I’ve searched for great lotions/butters for a long time at varying price points, but this is my new staple. I live in Florida, and a body butter that’s too heavy will feel slick and sticky on my legs in the heat. This body butter absorbs into your skin in just a couple of minutes so that your skin is truly moisturized, not just slathered with a sticky layer.”
Seasons may come and go, but skincare is here to stay. Grab this body butter from the Julia Roberts-approved brand now, just in time for transitional weather and some of your best skin days to come.
