Brand new Lujos whipped body butter!

I don’t know why I did it, but after all the creams, lotions and potions I made for Lujos orders yesterday, I decided to make just one more! And not just any product, one of my tried and tested recipes – oh no, that would just be toooooo easy!

I decided to try a whipped body butter. A new recipe. I have made body butters before, but never was totally satisfied with the consistency. Body butters are meant to be the richest of the rich. Luxurious. An oasis for your dry skin. But body butters also contain loads of waxes and butters, so in cool weather they can be a bit hard. They quickly warm up if you hold the pot in your hands, but not all customers understand or like this. So it was back to the drawing board!

The new whipped body butter seems to hold its meringue-like consistency really well. And it’s super rich and moisturizing. And the scent? It’s a light combination of lemon and neroli in our own secret proportions!

Here is how Kenton described the scent on my skin, after I’d used the body butter post shower:

fresh and fizzy, like a walk through an Andalucian citrus grove! More flirty than outright sexy, instant revitalisation for a jaded cynic !

Here’s a sneak preview of the new label! We haven’t named the product yet, so why not suggest a name yourself? The winner will receive a free full-sized pot of the body butter!
