What I thought…
I am always a little hesitant to try new lotion products on Mister, because of how extremely sensitive his skin is. One flair up of his eczema can last weeks, and getting it under control again is extremely difficult. But, when I received the opportunity to review the Episencial Better Body Butter, I read the ingredients and did not see anything listed that will typically cause a flair in Mister’s skin, so I thought I would try it. The Episencial Better Body Butter contains olive oil, shea butter, and sunflower seed oil. I have used olive oil and shea butter on Mister before, and not had any problems. The Episencial Better Body Butter is thicker than a typical lotion, and glides on easily. It left Mister’s skin feeling soft and smooth. We used it for over a week and never noticed any evidence of break out.
What I would change…
The Episencial Better Body Butter is fantastic as it is. The only thing I would change would be possibly adding either grape seed oil or green tea to the mix, as both are known anti-oxidants and aid in healing and skin health.
How I rate it:
Lady V dZine gives Episencial Better Body Butter a healthy 5 out of 5 hearts.
