Lavanila Healthy Body Butter Vanilla Coconut Review

Sponsored: Hey Everybody! Yesterday, I reviewed products from Lalicious! Today I'd like to talk about a company called Lavanila! I was sent their Healthy Body Butter in Vanilla Coconut ($19). I've been eyeing this body butter on Sephora's website for awhile. This body butter is white, whipped & super creamy! It feels really good when you work it into your skin. It feels very moisturizing. You have to work it in fast, because it dries FAST. After you work it in, it leaves a little waxy feeling stick (I'm not going to lie, I was a little worried), but then after 1-2 minutes it's gone (honestly). Your skin should have a really nice glow. There's nothing heavy, greasy or oily about this body butter. The Vanilla Coconut scent is very light, so it won't conflict with any perfume you're wearing. Also, a little goes a long way. The amount shown on my hand below will moisturize both your hand and your entire arm. This body butter (I never thought I would say this about BODY BUTTER), will work great YEAR ROUND! It's not too heavy for Summer! Who is/isn't this for? If you sweat a lot or oily, I would skip this. Everyone else should be good. This may not be enough for anyone with SUPER DRY SKIN. I see this as an everyday, keep this in your desk drawer lotion! Honestly this large tube should last you 6-12 mos. I liked the vanilla coconut scent I received. Nothing earth shattering. I've had better vanilla coconut scents, but this body butter felt really good to my skin and my skin felt soft after using it. I looked at some reviews on Sephora's website and I think the biggest issue with these body butters were the scents. I haven't tried any of the others, so I wouldn't know. But if you can test out the scents at the store before purchasing, I would do so. A little background. Lavanila is an all natural ingredient and organic skincare beauty company out of California. They don't use petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oils, silicone, synthetic dyes, sulfates or parabens. I don't have a lot of experience with natural products, but the few I have tried "behave differently" than your non-natural products. They don't have the strongest scents. The shelf life is not as long. They may be richer or apply differently. So you have to give them a chance. Have you tried anything from Lavanila?

Despite the scent not being overwhelmingly aaaamazing, it's great that the product's formula left your skin feeling smooth! I'm obsessed with body butters right now, especially with air conditioning blasting from all directions at this time of year haha..

I've never tried anything from Lavanilla before! I've been really curious about this brand though, since I'm all for natural/organic products! The coconut vanilla scent sounds nice, and that's nice to hear that this is good, Kim! I want to try their deodorant out!

I never heard of this brand before but I have been loving vanilla scented body products lately and also coconut. Coconut is the signature scent for summer isn't it!!

I am hesitant whem it comes to Vanilla scents in body products, I feel like ti is something that is hard to get right. But at least the results were convincing, which is what counts in the end.

Yum! I love vanilla coconut scents together especially when it is a product that works well.

I've been intrigued by this brand for year, but every time I've smelled one of their products, I haven't been thrilled with the scents. I don't dislike them, they just aren't quite what I expect. Knowing how well this works, though, I might be willing to consider giving it a try!

the packaging is very pretty....black and blue...nice combo
keep in touch

This sounds like a nice body butter. Glad to hear it does sink into the skin and that it's a clean product. We made the switch to clean body products last year.

I have super dry skin so this will probably not be a good choice for me.

I have never heard of this brand. Didn't know they were sold at Sephora. I love anything vanilla or coconut scented. ☺️
