Botanical Face Butter Review From The Darling Dahlia


The other day I was scrolling through Instagram and somehow stumbled upon this photo. Was this something we spread on toast? Something we slather all over our body? I had to know more. Turns out it is actually a Botanical Face Butter. I’m in. I love butter in any shape or form.

I was floored the next day when the company reached out after I had left a comment on their instagram and offered to send me the botanical Face Butter in exchange for my honest review! “Ummm… YES” I said! Looking at the ingredient list I already knew I would love it.

Botanical Face Butter From Sweet Life Spa

My thoughts:

First off, it smells amazing. Sort of tropically orangey vanilla. So basically my favorite scent in the history of scents. If you went through all the perfumes or body lotions I own you would find them to be all citrus vanilla scents. The texture is really unique. Very whipped and fluffy. It’s rich but feels light on the skin. It feels like it melts instantly into my face without leaving my skin over oily. I have dry skin so I like being slightly dewy. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I tend to avoid applying a ton of coconut oil to my face as it can be pore clogging but I have not had any irritation or breakouts after using the Botanical Face Butter! I initially thought the price tag was steep until I found that you get over 2 oz of product! Plus you only need such a small amount the jar will last for a long time. I had previously been paying $60 for 1.6oz for a different face cream…so this one is definitely priced well. Plus there are no bad, yucky ingredients or fillers. Nor is it watered down!
Have I convinced you that you need this product in your life? I thought so, you can purchase it HERE.
*This product was sent to me but these links are NOT affiliate nor was I paid to post this… I don’t earn a cent or benefit if you purchase, I just love sharing products I think are really lovely.
