Askmewhats Reviews: Embodyments Body Butter

Happy Friday everyone!
Guess what? It's 1:15am and I just got back home! Make-up school is WONDERFUL! But gosh, we left the school around 11:30pm already! We had fun with makeup looks and cam-whoring with our teacher Ms. Cheryl Cabanos :) Will talk m ore about the school adventure soon! :)

Let's talk about product reviews again!

Remember when I posted the "I Wonder" post about dry skin? After all the overwhelming responses I've received, I came to a point wherein I realized the further dry skin I have is due to my own laziness, I have to admit, I don't apply body lotion daily and there are times I am too lazy to purchase the right soap! So I want to thank everyone for the suggestions. I have listed them all down and will give them a try one by one! I've got the most answer on Cetaphil Body Cream, Lubriderm, The Body Shop Body Butter, etc...

During my last bazaar visit, the wonderful smelling booth from Embodyment caught my nose's attention! Giving their testers a try, I've got nothing to lose right?

Here are 2 variants I've tried:

Olive Body Butter is known for it's intensive moisturizing property
Lavender Body Butter, well, aside from moisturizing properties, I love the calmness of its scent!

Let me start with
Lavender & White Tea Body Butter

Embodyment Lavender & White Tea says ---

Apply all over your body after bathing for smooth and velvety skin.

The packaging says ---

Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • very moisturizing
  • absorbs to the skin easily, no oily residue
  • scent Lavender is super relaxing
  • scent is non overpowering
  • has the spa feel!
  • size is perfect to carry along
  • has quality seal so you know it's brand new

Cons
  • not easily available (do email them for bazaar schedules)
Overall Tips
  • OCness again, use a spatula instead of dipping your fingers for hygiene
  • apply this body butter right after taking a shower!
  • apply this 2x daily (if possible)
  • choose the scent you prefer to make you "want" to use this consistently
  • the Lavender scent is perfect to relax you before you go to bed
Will I repurchase?

Yes

Where can you purchase and how much?

Online site or email them embodyment.oe@gmail.com

50g = Php150.00 (approx $3.20)

  2. Ooooh, those look really nice! I love those kind of vendor fairs/bazaars!

    I'm not very good at moisturizing every day either, I have to admit. You're not alone, Nikki, lol.

  5. Im giving your an award :D but you prolly have gotten it from someone else too ^^"
    Im currently using LUSH body cream and i love it, but it is quite pricey and since I use it everyday Im gonna need a new pot soon. I wonder do this company (that you're reviewing) ship internationally, bcause I cant find that info in their website

  6. oh yay, i didn't know they started selling their products online!

  7. DeBi , wow commonwealth is quite far from me, but hey! i'm glad you're purchasing from them! You'll end up wanting more because their booth is super pretty and smells so good!

    Catherine, me too, I love bazaars because I get to see new products!

    aquaracer, I am having fun but I am sooo tired! Juggling school and work and living far !!! Oh well...it's something I want :) And yeah, there's a lot of products we want from each other! but you can have both worlds! you can always come down and visit here!

  8. Vanessa M., thanks! :)

    Anastacia, it is great stuff! Enjoyed using this!

    H.A.N.A.chan , thanks !!! We do have Lush stores here but haven't seen if they have the cream, I went there once to ask something for Super dry skin and they said they don't have it :(

  9. Lily, they don't sell online yet! I think they have the online thing for us to know what's their products but most of them are for bazaars, their site is not complete yet, I hope they do ship as I'm sure a lot would be interested in their products :)

  10. Huwaw, can't wait for another bazaar so I could go spot them! :D

    How I miss going to tiangges. :(

  11. make up school sounds fun !

    and one of the best body moisturiser in my opinion would be cetaphil. it has no scent and its not sticky and it's quiet cheap for a half a litre. i've been using it even before i started on my prescription cream for my skin condition.

  12. those look so nice!!! your review prompted me to ask for their price list... hehe

    ReplyDelete
  13. that's a very good size and price for a body butter! I love body butters but the huge tubs always put me off because I can never finish. We don't have these in our bazaar but i'll check out the website

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was able to try this at the Don Antonio Bazaar a few months back, and it did feel and smell nice!:) I didn't buy at that time though because I had too many lotions left at home. Heehee.

    I have dry skin on the body too, and I have to be diligent in moisturizing because otherwise my eczema will flare up.:( Boo to super sensitive skin.:(

  15. thanks for the review. i haven't been a fan of body butters because it makes my skin very oily. the only body butters I use now are Lush's but it's in the shower so it's not that bad.

    ReplyDelete
  16. YUM! I love body butters! =D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Those look nice! Too bad they're not available here.

    makeup school sounds fun!

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOVE body butters, but I'm not very good at keeping my spatulas clean :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. omgosh
    the packaging looks exactly like watsons body scrub!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hope you still need the one I sent you ;D!
    And I hope you like everything else...Won't say what it is, this is a half-blind swap :-P ^_^.

  21. i want to smell those so badly hahahaha
    thing is when i go in shops like b&bw i can't stay in there very long because i get a headache because of all the overwhelming fragrances

    ReplyDelete
  22. Gingerbee, let me know what's your favorite scent!

    Jo, I know! that's my next target, I plan to purchase one by one those that my readers recommend!!! So excited, I'm almost done with these 2 butters!

    Donnarence, oh I have their brochures, all their stuffs ranges around that price! Not too expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Connie, same with me about the size! I don't like the super huge one for travel, maybe for the super huge one, I'll just leave it at home! this is a very cute size! :)

    Soapaholic, I've seen your review about this I think? Hmmm..it was you! hahaha I know what you mean, I've been snubbing body moisturizers and cream because I've always thought I've got so much at home, but you know what? I promised myself to really take care of my skin and I am serious with choosing the right body moisturizer!

    JENSMAKEUPBAG , wow, really? Mine...well this never gets oily, it sink right into the skin like ASAP! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Fifi, ditto!

    gio, so true, I'm not sure though if they ship internationally, I believe they do distribute to several Spas down here in PI! :)

    The Faux Fashionista , I usually wipe the spatulas after use then keep it in a small ziplock :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. LyNn, really? I have never seen Watson's Body Scrub! I may take a look at it! LOL

    Fabuless Beauty, I know! you are the body butter type I can sense :)

    Teeyah, it is yummY!!!!

    Cris! Of course I still need the one you sent!!! I am excited for it as I'm reading so many raves about it! I'm almost done with the 2 body butters so yours will be the right timing :) THANK YOU! I hope you like the blind swap items sent your way too!

    Yumyumsushi, that's how I felt about Lush too, I feel like I'm having a headache each time i pass by their store, but if I go in, the scent is ok!!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. this stuff looks yummy actually ahhaha

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree that the dry of skin (like us!) need to use body butters at least once per day! I use the Body Shop body butters.

    Your's look yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  28. M, hahah it does look delicious!!!

    Jamilla Camel, I know! when I think about my skin, i always think about you! I have a feeling we are the same!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'll have to agree with you, I think my dry skin gets worse if I'm too lazy to apply lotion too haha xD It's too much work, I just want to sleep afterwards. Sometimes I -do- just sleep afterwards, even with wet hair, and wake up with a headache ~_~ But I'm trying to be more diligent with caring for my skin. And drink more water. Thanks for the review. Aw, too bad it's hard to get in the US :(
