Chandler Farm Body Butter Knobi's Coconut & Banana -- 7 oz
Lighter than expected
When I purchase a product marked "body butter", I expect it to be rich. I was surprised to find that this has an almost gel-like appearance. Upon application, I found it took a long time to rub in, but if I left it only partially rubbed in, it would absorb within about a minute on its own. Skin feels soft but dry to the touch, which is usually a little drier than I'd prefer with a body butter.
This description may make it sound like I don't like this product. I actually do, but with conditions. Its lightness will make it an excellent warm weather body moisturizer. Those who like richer body butters might find it lacking, especially in colder months. The smell is a little strange, but ultimately, I find I like it.
On the whole, I'd say it's a little richer than your standard lotion but not as rich as your standard body butter and recommend it for summer skin hydration.
