When Himalaya had launched their FOR MOMS range, one of the products in that range was the Soothing Body Butter. My first impressions of this body butter were that it was nice, but nothing special. However, after using it regularly over several months – not just for myself, but even for my boys, and having given it to my mother-in-law as well, I have to say, we all love it! Read on to know more about this gentle, non-greasy body butter that is great for daily use.
About the Himalaya FOR MOMS Soothing Body Butter
Price Rs. 295 / 200ml. Available here.
Himalaya FOR MOMS Soothing Body Butter is a daily-use cream that intensively moisturizes and nourishes your skin, making it soft and supple. Cocoa Butter soothes dry, irritated skin, and Glycerin keeps skin hydrated for a longer time. Himalaya FOR MOMS Soothing Body Butter contains Vitamin E, which protects the skin from damage and irritation. It comes in the three calming fragrances of Lavender, Rose, and Jasmine.
The Himalaya Soothing Body Butter is a nourishing cream that is absorbed pretty quickly into the skin and gives hydration without making the skin feel greasy and sticky. It is especially great for use in hot and humid months when you need moisturisation that isn’t too heavy and yet, leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.
Dry skin is an issue nearly everyone faces these days – right from children to senior citizens – and the Himalaya Soothing Body Butter works well for everyone. Children as well as the elderly, have very delicate and sensitive skin and hence, they need products that are gentle, have nourishing ingredients but no harmful chemicals.
Obviously, as the name suggests, this body butter is also great for mommies-to-be since it keeps the skin soft and supple as it stretches during pregnancy and helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
While the Himalaya Soothing Body Butter has hydrating ingredients such as Cocoa Butter and Glycerine, it is also free from nasties such as parabens and mineral oil. Cocoa Butter is a natural anti-oxidant which soothes, hydrates and balances the skin while Glycerine is a humectant that locks in the moisture and keeps the skin hydrated for a longer time.
Packaged in a round tub and available in 3 fragrance variants – Lavender (my favourite), Rose and Jasmine – as well as 3 sizes (50ml, 100ml and 200ml), the Himalaya Soothing Body Butter is a must have in the travel bag as well as on the dresser at home. One of the biggest advantages of the tub packaging is that there is no product wastage – you can scoop out every last bit of the product. And unlike tubes, you can wash these tubs and jars and reuse them for storing small things such as paper clips, small accessories and the like thus doing your bit towards the environment.
If you’re on the lookout for a gentle, effective body cream for daily use, that doesn’t have nasty ingredients such as parabens and mineral oil and that doesn’t make the skin feel greasy, then I do recommend giving the Himalaya Soothing Body Butters a try. My mother-in-law especially loves these (the rose variant is her favourite) and these are among the more affordable body butters available in the market. Have you tried them out yet?
