OMG!

 

I'm sure Lady V will agree with me when I say this is one of THE BEST lavender-based scents Mara has come up with - and I say that as someone who isn't even that big a fan of lavender, although M has trained me over the years to enjoy it. But when I first tried my samples of these products I was just so immediately relaxed by using them, it was amazing - much like the first time I tried Beautiful Dreamer, for example. The lavender is a bit on the herbaceous side, but I think the buttercream accord keeps it from becoming too herbal on me.

 

I love the massage butter, to me it's the best moisturizer Mara has created since Nommy Butterstuff - it's got a similar really deeply-penetrating blend of oils and butters, where you have to let it sink in a bit. I use it on my hands and elbows at bedtime because those are the most leathery parts of me. :lol:

 

The soap is a little more intense in scent, I think, and I've only used it on my face so far, but it's true that a little goes a long way - my original sample lasted about a month, so I imagine my jar will last me a good while. It's so creamy and leaves my skin oh so soft. I use it to wash my face when I get home from work, and it immediately chills me out, mood-wise.

 

Lavender is now my go-to scent at bedtime and my routine is moisturizing with the Massage Butter and then pairing it with a lavender-based scent (my favorite with this is Aurora, so good!) and it really does make me sleepy, which is exactly what I want. So when another batch becomes available, if you love lavender I highly-recommend either of these products, or if you want an intense moisturizing experience I would recommend the Massage Butter in any scent (I really loved it in the previous scent Mara used as well).

Yes, I have been slacking on posting reviews of the B & B stuff. The massage butter is AMAZE BALLS! This is literally the only moisturizer that got my hands through excessive hand washing / below zero temps this winter. The lavender is a gorgeous blend.

Well, it's always said that you shouldn't keep an open container of B&B product more than 6 months because of the risk of getting water in there. (Water contains microbes, and creams are a good growth medium.) If it's sealed, it should last over 2 years.

I have used the massage butter religiously for two months now and my hands are definitely starting to look less ravaged, so there's a cumulative effect for sure. The best thing is that my skin feels consistently soft now from daily use (I put it on every night before I go to bed and give it a bit to sink in). It's such a relaxing ritual for me, really helps me get into the sleepytime mindset, I just love it so much!

Yesterday I tried the whipped cream soap in the shower just for cleansing and it works quite well with a pouf. A little goes a long way but I think a small handful will do the trick, lots of lather and of course it smells so wonderful!

Email the shop. If they have any, you can do an invoice request. They've had a couple things I wanted that weren't on the website :)
