Review: Ayres Patagonia Body Butter

I received this complimentary product for review purposes with no compensation. All opinions are 100% mine and 100% true.

Dry skin is my biggest concern in the winter especially with the temperamental weather weve been having in Iowa. I typically use body lotion to remedy this, but I havent used body butter in a while, so I jumped at the opportunity to review the Ayres Patagonia Body Butter.

The biggest thing that sets this product apart from others in the market is that its made with a plant based formula, which makes it natural and cruelty free. The formula is a blend of plant emollients, herbal extracts, antioxidants, and vitamins that work together to soothe and moisturize dry skin.

{ Love Notes }

This particular scent, Patagonia, is a mix of jasmine, lavender, ylang ylang, and fir. The smell takes me to a soothing facial session. Its the best smell to unwind and end a long day with. The thick consistency of the body butter is luxurious, which adds to the feeling of being pampered. After a stressful day, theres nothing better than a hot shower followed with massaging in some Ayres Patagonia Body Butter.

{ Sad Faces }

I mentioned that I havent used body butter in a while, and theres a reason for that: Im not a big fan of the consistency. Ive always been more of a body lotion kind of gal. For me to completely cover the areas that I want to, it takes a lot of product; its difficult to smooth it evenly. This isnt anything against this product specifically since I do love the scent. Its just that body butter isnt my cup of tea.

{ Final Verdict }

Personally, this isnt a product that I would purchase since Im not all that into body butter. However, if body butter is your thing, I highly recommend the Ayres Patagonia Body Butter! The smell is so soothing and relaxing.

This product is also available in Midnight Tango (orange blossom and vanilla) and Pampas Sunrise (cedarwood, citrus, patchouli, and spearmint). I was also sent this product in these two scents along with the Ayres Patagonia Bar Soap. I'll be trying out and reviewing them as well, so check back.

    I received a sample of this in my BirchBox and fell in love! I've tried many lotions, creams and body butters before, but this is without a doubt the best! It's moisturizing without being too heavy and softening without being too greasy. As a bonus,the scents are nice...not too overwhelming. Definitely my favorite!

  5. I agree with you about the scents. These products tend to have overpowering synthetic-smelling scents, but this particular body butter smells super soothing and natural. It's definitely one that I look forward to at the end of a stressful day.

  6. Yeah, I figured that I should at least try body butter again before making any judgments, and I'm glad that I did because I ended up using it daily!

  7. Wheww~ your skin is surely soft by now haha :D
