I am one of those people who equate sensuality with smelling sweet and spicy. Most of the perfumes, body washes and lotions I’ve been attracted to have been rich, strong, and most times, smelled of something edible. Coconut, vanilla, cocoa, and pumpkin are among my favorites. So it was a great pleasure when I received Bubalina Spicy Pumpkin Body Butter Creme–1 of 15 scents that Bubalina sent we heart this to review. Created with both natural and organic ingredients, this product did not disappoint. The first time I dipped my fingers in the thick and creamy butter, I was in love. I was moisturized from head to toe, and was so immersed in the scent, I didn’t have a need for perfume. This body butter is not for the shy, because you will leave a wonderful smelling trail wherever you go. Expect compliments!
It’s hard to decide what I liked the most. First, there was the box with its sassy illustration of a doe-eyed beauty bathing in a pumpkin. (Nearly all of their products feature women lounging in a delectable dish or fruit.) Secondly, there was the irresistible smell that lasted all the day. And, finally, there’s the hydrating power. January and February in New York City was cold and snowy, and that left my legs scaly. But Bubalina’s Body Butter moisturized excellently, and my legs were still smooth when I came from work and took off my thick long underwear. According to Bubalina, Spicy Pumpkin is an anti-inflammatory creme, made with ginger root and pumpkin seed oils as well as the skin-friendly antioxidants Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and Omega 3.
Besides body butters, Bubalina also offer body scrubs, lotions, bath gels and massage oils in 19 scents like Citron Rose, Dolcetto, and Wild Pomegranate. The six year old company prides itself on creating effective products in environmentally friendly packaging that appeal to a woman’s sense of femininity. It’s true, the pretty box did appeal to my girlie side. (I’ve actually kept it to store jewelry in!)
You can purchase the body butters from their website for $24, but they do appear to have monthly sales. This month (March), Peach Mango is on sale for under $20. I definitely foresee more Bubalina products on my dresser. Even better, sending some to my Grandmother and Mom for Mother’s Day.
