Review- Plum Island Soap Co. Body Butter


Rich, thick, decadent and wonderful for thirsty skin. Made with a pure olive oil and beeswax base to help seal in moisture for prolonged protection. Scented with pure essential oils imported from all over the world for a truly 100% gentle and natural product. 11 yummy scents. $16.75; 6 oz.

This body butter is definitely creamy and my skin does drink it up. I did a comparison by putting it on a part of the back of my hand, sort of a side-by-side test. I absolutely could see a difference in smoothness and texture between the moisturized part and the dry part. I was given samples of orange and lemon lime. When I first tried them I thought a ten-year-old girl (and younger) would love that they smelled like the hard candies of the same flavor. But once the top note disappears (about two minutes), both scents settle down and become quite pleasant. It is creamy, but not so heavy that you feel you just slathered on grease. Body butter . . . I mean, really, who doesn’t love it? And everything I’ve tried from Plum Island, I’ve been pleased with.

I was lucky enough to get 2 samples of this incredible body butter. I have Pink Grapefruit & Ocean Mist. I can’t decide which I like better, I am instantly drawn to the delicious grapefruit. It is slightly tangy but sweet too. It’s amazing! On the other hand, Ocean mist is a clean crisp scent that isn’t perfumy but pure on my skin. The samples I have are the size of lip balm tubs so I have been using sparingly on the areas that need it most. I found that elbows, knees and my ankles are in the most need – OOOh, I forgot my hands too! A little goes a long way and this totally sinks into my skin leaving behind soft, smooth skin that I am not embarrassed to show off. The change in seasons has brought very dry skin for me and I am prepared to handle it! I find that my body parts are moisturized throughout the day and never flaky anymore... One other tip, this works great on your feet after a good scrub with fluffy socks. I will wear over night to wake and find super soft and moisturized feet! I really love this line! Thanks Plum Island!

I have been using my Plum Island Soap Co. Body Butter in Ocean Mist. The only problem was the fact that there was no label other than 'Ocean Mist' so I had no idea who made this wonderful butter. I tried it on my hands first and fell in love with it so I went on to elbows, etc. I wasn't sure if it was hand cream or body cream and I wanted to find out. It made my decision that it is just terrific as a hand cream or a body butter. I decided to go to the various Web sites for products we are testing and discovered that Plum Island Soap Co. is the guilty party. Believe me, this is a very good guilty. This has such a wonderful fresh fragrance -- so clean and invigorating. However, if you prefer another scent -- just check them out. I have discovered they have many wonderful fragrances to choose from. The only problem you might have is trying to select just one. So go ahead, pick a few. The cost is minimal and your body will thank you by feeling so wonderful. It is a good investment for your skin.
