The beauty industry has been dominated by oils for years, but they’ve been a mainstay for beauty and wellness purposes for centuries. Their versatility makes them beneficial in a myriad of ways! Oils can be used for everything from naturally reducing stress and anxiety to offsetting the signs of premature aging or stopping acne in its tracks.
Cleopatra, the Queen of the Nile, soaked her hair with honey and castor oil. She preferred essential oils like myrrh, rose, cypress, frankincense, and neroli for fragrance. Celebrities of today like Gisele Bündchen uses facial oil to calm acne flare-ups, while Jennifer Lopez uses it to keep her skin glowing. It’s hard to find a find a female celebrity interview that doesn’t mention an oil that’s part of their beauty routine. Even men are starting to take notice and incorporating oils in their daily regimen!
BUTTERelixir is a luxurious and natural skincare line that’s oil-based. Tony, Lorenza, and Jared are three NYC-based yogis that are the visionaries behind BUTTERelixir. It was created for yogis by yogis, but it can be used for anyone that wants to use a pure, simple, and oil-based skincare line that doesn’t compromise quality, beauty and integrity.
Their skincare line boasts the Bhakti ($52), Body + Hair Oil ($35 – $78), Baby Body + Hair Oil ($35), Face Oil ($48). Additionally, they offer lip butter ($12), a sponge ($13), and two gift-worthy sets: the BUTTERelixir bundle ($95) and BUTTERelixir bento ($131).
The BUTTERelixir bento that I have had the pleasure of incorporating in my beauty regimen is a splurge-worthy gift set, and is just as sophisticated as it is functional! It includes their 3oz. BUTTERelixir body and hair oil, BUTTERelixir face oil, BUTTERelixir lip, BUTTERelixir bar, and sponge.
The products are all housed in a durable bento box that was inspired by the Japanese Bento and their appreciation to products, craftsmanship, simplicity, and tradition. The bento box is perfect for storing and organizing make-up once your products are depleted. It even has removable compartments on the bottom!
I used to be apprehensive about using oils in the past because of my skin being so prone to acne breakouts. I have slowly grown to love them over the past few years, especially during the cooler seasons.
Products like the BUTTERelixir body + hair oil and BUTTERelixir face oil are crucial for this time of year when our skin becomes dry and almost unmanageable. They’ll keep Old Man Winter in his place by taking care of our skin by softening it, improving the elasticity, and giving it the hydration it craves. These oils truly do wonders for the skin. You’ll also smell absolutely divine while at it!
One of the other products that I fall in love over again and again each time I use it is the lip butter. It’s super hydrating without having that sticky, icky feeling like some lip butters. Inspired by traditional Indian chai tea, it’s naturally flavored and scented with hints of vanilla and cardamon.
Lastly, there’s the bar soap and sponge that’s ideal for sensitive skin like mine! It had been ages since I have used a sponge, but using this one reminded me why I fell in love with one in the first place. It adds a luxurious, spa-like experience to any shower or bath. Their natural sea sponge is a work of art within itself that’s native from the Pacific Ocean.
