Baishali’s Skin Is As Smooth As A Baby’s Bottom With This Body Butter
Lately, I’ve had a deep concern — I genuinely feel like my skin is ageing. Till a few weeks ago, I was confident about the fact that my skin is problem-free and forever young, just like I am. *scoff*
And then I looked closely at a few recent photos of myself, and I was aghast. My skin is ageing. There’s no denying it. Apparently this is known to happen as soon as you hit 25, and my sheer oblivion has clearly caught up (no, I’m not telling you when I crossed that ripe age of 25).
Since then, I’ve been overanalysing and criticising my skin every time I look at the mirror. But enough with the self-deprecation.
While my face has combination skin, leaning more towards it being oily, the rest of my body is extremely dry. So I’m constantly on the lookout for moisturising lotions that will hydrate my skin for a few hours at the very least.
Despite having lathered myself with layers of lotion in the morning, usually by the time I reach office, my skin resembles the Sahara desert. Yes, I exaggerate but you get my drift.
So when I chanced upon the Wikka Body Butter, I knew I had to try it. Why, you ask? Because not only is it loaded with a ton of ingredients that hydrate the skin, keeping it supple for longer, it claims to be largely natural. And I had to put it to the test.
And I’m happy to report in the affirmative. Firstly, the body butter smells pretty divine. Made with Shea butter and Cocoa butter (you know, the kind that smells all vanilla-y), aloe vera (everyone knows this is one plant that is GREAT for the skin), and Lavender and Avocado essential oils, amongst others, this one is a treat for your skin.
Don’t eat it though, it’s not edible. No, never happened to you? Huh. Me neither. *sheepish*
My sense of smell is extremely strong, so I’m usually sold on anything that smells good, but thankfully this is one product that does a lot more.
The nourishment it’s been providing my skin has been long-lasting, and I already feel a difference in its texture — it’s softer, smoother, more supple, and oh-so touchable (I’m not giving details on that!).
What’s cool about Wikka as a brand is that its products are not just beauty — they cover natural wellness and aromatherapy too. The founder of Wikka, Rupal Shabnab Tyagi, is a qualified aromatherapist who lends her expertise in the creation of these products, which are made in the foothills of the Himalayas. How’s that for au naturel?
Yes, the price tag is a bit steep for a body butter but the benefits are twofold — a) you don’t need too product for maximum hydration, and b) isn’t taking care of your body and skin a good investment?
