Beauty Brief: Susanne Kaufmann Body Butter

susanne kaufmann, body butter, beauty brief

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about beauty. I’m usually faithful to certain brands and products, so it’s not frequent that I have anything new to write about. But there have been a few creams I’ve tried recently so I’ve put together a few blog posts that I’ll be running over the next few weeks. Let’s start with the expensive one!

I’ve searched high and low for an organic body butter that was effective, not too greasy, and packaged in a jar and not a tube or bottle. When I lived in Vancouver I was sent truckloads of beauty products to try, including many wonderful organic brands (many of which were very good and got mentions here) but I think I may have finally found the perfect body butter, perfect in all ways except the price tag (that’s always the way, isn’t it?) Susanne Kaufmann’s Body Butter smells divine, moisturizes really effectively, is not greasy, absorbs quickly (you can put it on before bed without fear of greasy sheets) and is packaged in glass jars. This is an amzing brand – Austrian, all holistic and organic – exactly what a luxury beauty brand should be. I know the price is a bit scary (49 euros) but I’ve got a suggestion for a cheap body butter you can alternate with this. Check back next week for my DYI whipped body butter. Meanwhile, if you want to indulge, I strongly recommend this amazing cream.
