First off I tried the butter in a small area on my arm to make sure I didn't react from any of the ingredients, even though they are all natural, one of the ingredients is sweet almond oil and I wasn't sure if I was allergic to almonds or not. After a few hours I felt the area and it was hydrated. After my test I began to play with all the butters, smelling all the scents and rubbing them on my hands. I immediately showed my mom and she rubbed the lotion on her elbows, because her elbows get really dry. About 2 hours later we felt her elbow, and no joke, it felt like baby skin. So soft, you couldn't even feel the creases in her arm. I was shocked, this butter is way better than any lotion I've ever bought in a store, and I've bought some high priced stuff. I now love that it's homemade and one of a kind. My mom and I placed a butter in both bathrooms in the house and we're going to be fighting over our favorite scent: coconut lime until we need to order more.
The scents are from left to right: Bitter orange orchid, fresh ruit salsa with line, and coconut lime. The butters are so light weight and absorb nicely into the skin. The skin feels smooth and silky for hours.
Corrine mailed the lotions with a cute little note. I'm so happy I won this contest, thanks again Corrine. I'll be getting in touch with you when I need more, this time as a client ;)

Okay now for the Bad News:
Yesterday I decided to lay out in the sun and I got burnt to a crisp. I didn't realize how long I was outside for and not wearing SPF was silly of me. I am now regretting my decision.
I only laid on one side of my body my front neck, arms and legs are crispy red and the back of me is pale as can be, looks so funny. I will NOT be neglecting my sunscreen for the rest of the summer. Look at this madness: Take a lesson from me and remember to SPF this summer.
