Hello lovelies! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
When I talk about body butters, the most common reaction that I get is “Oh! But body butters are only meant for extremely dry skin types… Aren’t they?!” :-/
Well, yes and no!
Some body butters are obviously not suitable for normal to oily skin types due to their intensive moisturizing power and some are even exclusively made and marketed for severely dry skin type… But we also have a few body butters which can be used by any and every skin type and today, I am going to review one such lightweight body butter for you all! It is from the brand – Azafran Organics! 😀
Read on… ❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Azafran Organics aqua milk skin balancing body butter comes in a bulky, cream-coloured plastic tube packaging with a brown-coloured flip-cap on the top! The body of the tube contains all the details about the product, including the list of ingredients, the benefits and the manufacturing details mentioned over it…
The overall packaging of the body butter is really sturdy and leak-proof which makes it a good travel companion! 😀
The body butter is creamy-white in colour and has a lightweight and non-greasy yet creamy and smooth texture! It smells quite unique and has a really pleasant sweet-creamy-coconuty-aloe-y fragrance which is actually not very strong but does leave the skin smelling fresh for several minutes! 😛
This skin balancing body butter spreads on the skin with ease and just a little more than half a teaspoon of it is enough for both the arms! The body butter gets completely absorbed into the skin without leaving behind any greasy or oily residue and it also doesn’t make the skin feel heavy or sweaty after application… Instead it leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized and keeps it hydrated for around 8-15 hours (or even more) depending on the weather condition and the skin type! 😀
I have a dry body skin type which turns almost normal during the summers and dry to extremely dry during the winters while it keeps shifting between these skin types during the transition months… I have been using this body butter for quite a few months now and as per my personal experience, I believe that this body butter would work amazingly for normal-combination to normal-dry skin types throughout the year… For dry to extremely dry skin types, this would be a great choice for the summer and transition months but may not provide enough hydration for the harsh winter months while for oily to extremely oily skin types, this butter might make the skin feel slightly greasy during the hot summer months but would be very helpful during the winter and transition months… (Phew!!!) 😛
I love how this product keeps my skin soft and nourished almost around the year and never really makes it go extremely dry or extremely oily after application… Also, with regular use I have observed a slight improvement in the texture of my skin and my skin now feels smoother than before! ❤
The only issue that I have with this product is its price! I feel that it is quite expensive and we already have a lot of products from equally good but ‘affordable’ brands that provide us with similar results! 😛

5. Spreads on the skin with ease and gets completely absorbed into the skin without leaving behind any greasy residue…
6. Suitable for normal-combination to normal-dry skin types throughout the year while drier skin types would find it more useful during the transition and the hotter months and oilier skin types would find it more useful during the transition and the colder months!
7. Leaves the skin soft, smooth and nourished almost (depends on the weather condition/skin type) throughout the day!
8. Slightly improves the texture of the skin with regular use!
1. Quite expensive; one can get similar results with much affordable body lotions/butters!
2. May not be suitable for oily to extremely oily skin types during summers and for dry to extremely dry skin types during the harsh winters!
FINAL TAKE: Azafran Organics aqua milk body butter is an effective, lightweight, nourishing body butter which keeps the skin soft, smooth and nourished for long and also improves the texture of the skin with regular use… If you are looking for a good body lotion/butter and are ready to splurge a little, you can definitely give this a shot! 😛 😀
Hope it helps! ❤
