A Body Butter for Prepping Fall Skin
By Leah Prinzivalli |
Let’s Just Get to the Point:
Keep this body lotion by your bedside for all of fall if you want soft, nourished legs, arms, elbows, and whatever's in need of a little extra love courtesy of nourishing Brazilian oils.
If You Want to Know More:
Pumpkin spice lattes are back and we have a sudden urge to wear plaid, which means it’s time to bulk up the skin care routine. The transition from summer to fall is hard all around — and that includes on your skin. As temperatures cool down, turn to sheet masks, night creams, and all-around more hearty skin care to help prevent dryness. The one thing everyone needs at the beginning of fall is a lotion that packs a punch, and that’s what Eu2Be Nurture + Nourish Lotion ($40) is here for.
This body moisturizer comes in a comfortingly sized 8 ounce jar that we recommend stashing by your bedside for the entire rest of 2018. It’s formulated with all the oils we look for in a moisturizer — 13 to be exact. The lotion contains sunflower seed oil, avocado oil, broccoli seed oil, brasil nut oil, and more. It’s paraben, petroleum, and even gluten free. It’s not tested on animals. (Also, because we know you’ll ask: Eu2Be is named after the founder’s aunt Eugenia and pronounced “You to Be.”)
We recommend this lotion for fall because, just as the ‘nurture and nourish’ name describes,’ it goes on heavy. I used it on my legs, elbows, and arms for a week, and each time I felt like applying lotion before bed became a ritual instead of an annoying chore. The moisturizer itself applies thick and it’s so juicy that it takes a few minutes to sink into the skin. But once it does, you’re left with the soft skin that somehow makes it feel like it’s not 35 degrees outside, and that’s something worth celebrating.
