I can admit it, I am a body butter fiend. Like lip stains, I like to try this type of product in other lines as well but to date, I have yet to find a richer, more aromatic product than Maryam’s Soap Nook’s Whipped Shea Monoi Body Butter.
The first thing you notice about this product when you open it is how dense it is. Maryam blends natural ingredients like shea butter, monoi de tahiti oil, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, goat milk, vitamin E, and silk fibers to produce this intense moisturizer for your skin. It may appear to be a little on the gritty side but it’s not, those are just little moisturizing bits. Once you use the product, you see that these little bits really go the distance. That’s what makes this body butter last so long, it’s so rich that you only need a little bit at a time to moisturize and protect your skin.
Also, the scent is undeniable. Like all of Maryam’s products, this body butter is no exception. The first time I tried the product, I put it on right before I went to bed. I tried this product in Gardenia Peach and the scent was everywhere. When I woke up the next morning, I was shocked when my skin still smelled like I had just put it on minutes ago. The scent lingered on my sheets for awhile as well, which was a nice added bonus. For some, the scent may be a little overwhelming but I’d suggest that you pick a scent that you can live with. While Gardenia Peach may not have been idea for me, I would happily surround myself with some of Maryam’s other scents.
