My review samples of Ellovi truly couldn’t have come at a better time. Both the Body Butter and Lip Butter have helped me immensely in the last few weeks. Let me break it down for you…
Remember how I broke my foot? Well, what they don’t tell you is that as your foot is healing inside all that tape/aircast/walking boot, it’s also growing alligator skin. I tried a couple other lotions and wasn’t really seeing any improvement… then I tried the Ellovi body butter. I slathered a thick layer on one evening and slept with socks on, and saw a huge difference the next morning. The following night I used my little foot scraper, then followed up with the Ellovi and socks. The next morning I could hardly recognize my crazy alligator-skin foot! My skin was so soft and smooth, it was like I had just gotten a pedicure.
This stuff is incredibly thick, soft, and substantial. I absolutely love it. I’ve since continued to use it on my legs, arms, feet hands… basically everywhere but my face. Because it’s so thick and hardworking, it would be too much for the face. Which is probably why it’s called BODY butter.
Now, let’s talk ingredients! From their website:
We believe that what you put on your skin goes more than skin deep. Which is why we are committed to keeping our products free of anything that doesn’t come straight from nature.
Their Body Butter has just a handful of natural, raw, vegan ingredients: macadamia nut, coconut, marula nut, hemp seed, and shea. No preservatives, parabens, or synthetic ingredients, and absolutely nothing you can’t pronounce! And, of course, it’s not tested on animals, and is certified vegan.
My next physical disaster wasn’t far behind. 2 weeks ago I had the. worst. flu. ever. Ever! My lips and nose were both chapped (I feared!) beyond hope. I know you know what I mean, we’ve all been there. Breathing through your mouth and blowing your nose every 7.2 seconds wreaks havoc on your face.
I didn’t think to start using the Lip Butter until a day or two into my flu, so I was already chapped, but after a couple applications my lips were almost back to normal. And it was actually healing, it wasn’t just a slather of wax on top of my still-chapped lips. Using my (clean!) finger I also applied the butter to my poor, red nose. Surprise, surprise, it kept my skin from peeling!
Bottom Line: I’m beyond happy with these products. There are products you get for free that you think are okay, but wouldn’t buy yourself. Then there are products that you can’t wait to spend your own money on, just so you know you’ll never run out of them. That’s Ellovi! I’m a customer for life!
