Ixora Botanical Beauty “Ash Today, Gone Tomorrow” Butter Pictures and Review
Ixora Botanical Beauty “Ash Today, Gone Tomorrow” Butter ($16.00/ 4oz.), is described as a butter that “contains a mixture of butters and oils that are geared towards moisturizing and sealing that moisture into your skin as well as those suffering from eczema. It is kid friendly and can be used in your hair as a moisturizer and give shine to your hair.”
You know a product is wonderful when your first thought is ‘this stuff belongs in stores and not just any store but speciality stores.’ I know you guys are probably tired of my eczema & dry skin woes but “Ash Today, Gone Tomorrow” Butter is heaven sent. I wish I would have taken photos prior to indulging but I couldn’t resist. Unlike other brands this butter is made with a Nilotica Shea Butter which is smoother in texture and a tad more fragrant. Along with cupuca butter that aids in skin elasticity, soothing aloe oil, sweet almond oil that moisturizes and smoothes skin, avocado oil, and jojoba oil, and vitamin E this buttery oil blend is everything. I find myself only needing to use it once a day immediately after showing. I keep this jar in my bag to reuse after hand-washing. It doesn’t cause any flare ups and is actually one of the better moisturizers I’ve used. The unscented version has a naturally mild creamy cocoa/ shea scent that doesn’t linger all day or interfere with my perfumes for the most part. If you’re a lover of fragrances and unscented just isn’t your thing, don’t worry, Mercedes has dozens to choose from. Honestly, I have no complaints and truly feel that this is one of the few indie body and skin care brands I would love to see make it in stores. I would like to see some changes to the labeling; the visuals and wording are just fine but the wording tends to rub off because of the oil and random stuff in my bag attaches to the sticker.
