No need to go expensive when looking for science-based botanical body products. You can find excellent cleansing and moisturizing items in the drugstore with plant-based ingredients, like the ones from the cult favorite Klorane line. Klorane’s beautiful body products take great care of your skin without breaking the bank! They have some incredible products in their line that feature Cupuaçu butter, something that leaves shea butter in the dust. I tested three of the Klorane Cupuaçu products for review today, and Marcia has a few to tell you about tomorrow.samples affiliate links
The HIBISCUS FLOWER SHOWER GEL WITH CUPUAÇU BUTTER (6.7 OZ. $14) is a lovely body wash that features organic Cupuaçu butter. Cupuaçu butter has lots of Omega-6 and 9, and is actually one and half times more nourishing for skin than shea butter, so this is an extremely moisturizing shower gel. The hibiscus fragrance is light and sweet, and it is very pleasant but doesn’t linger. The notes include hibiscus flower, honeysuckle, and peony . I find this shower gel to be a wonderfully gentle soap-free cleanser that leaves my skin soft and hydrated.
The YUZU INFUSION CREAM SOAP WITH CUPUAÇU BUTTER ($8) is a really lovely bar soap that I am enjoying as a hand soap in my main floor bathroom. It’s a very creamy bar soap that is quite gentle and hydrating, thanks to the Cupuaçu butter with all the Omega-6 and 9, which we also now know is one and half times more nourishing for skin than shea butter. The Yuzu Cream Soap has a beautiful lather and the scent is a really unique citrus with notes of Yuzu peel zest, neroli, and aquatic moss. It’s a gorgeous subtle, clean scent.
The FIG LEAF BODY LOTION WITH CUPUAÇU BUTTER (6.7 OZ $16) has the same organic Cupuaçu butter as the bar soap and the shower gel, this time in a lovely lightweight body lotion. This lotion is light but it packs the same punch as a heavy-duty moisturizer without any greasiness or major wait time for wetness or tackiness to go away. My skin is incredibly soft and moist for hours after application. The fig fragrance is delightful – sweet but not too sweet. Notes are fig, freesia blossom, and white tea.
Overall I am super impressed with all of the products featuring Cupuaçu butter. I do find that it is more moisturizing and more effective than shea butter in everything, from shower gel to bar soap to body lotion. I love the three scents from Klorane as well, with the Yuzu being the most intriguing. Right now is great time to order from Klorane online – they have a special running, get a free Shampoo with Peony with your order. Or you can also find Klorane at Ulta. Happy shopping, and be sure to come back tomorrow to see what Marcia has to say about the Klorane products she tested! – Lisa
