Desert Island Must Have Product - Brown Earth Body Butter


I previously resisted blogging about this product because it is my best kept secret.  Most people I recommend it to have never heard of the brand.  Let me introduced you to one of my Top 5 products that I cannot be without - Brown Earth Body cream.  I use either the Mango, Shea & Cocoa Butter or the Coconut, Shea & Cocoa Butter version.  This cream has been my life or should I say skin saver for many years.  It is super rich and luxurious, it smells divine and it hydrates your skin leaving it baby soft.  A little goes a very long way making it excellent value for money. 

The texture of this body cream is rich and buttery but it absorbs into the skin very easily.  If you are someone that has very dry skin you will love it but other skin types many find it heavy.  There is no difference between the Mango or Coconut in terms of performance I just cannot decide which fragrance I prefer so I alternate.  I have three favourite foods in my life Coconut, Mango and Cinnamon so I will always gravitate towards products with these fragrances.

When I first discovered this product I was having problems with my legs.  My skin was flaky and shaving was leaving my legs extremely sore.  I was in a Catch 22 situation because all the lotions I tried were not hydrating enough or caused skin irritation on top of already having shaving rash ouch!  After using Brown Earth body cream this problem was eliminated and I honestly mean that.  My skin is always soft and not flaky.  The hydration from this product is so fantastic that I do not have to apply everyday because the effects last.  I no longer experience skin irritation after shaving and can comfortably apply this product immediately after shaving and not get a stinging sensation.  

Brown Earth products are inspired by nature.  This is a brand that does not use Ethoxylate Emulsifiers , Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Parabens , Cetrimonium Chloride, Paraffin Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Petrolatum, Silicones (Dimethicone and Cyclomethicone), Butylene Glycol and Propylene Glycol.

The one thing I will add which does not often get mentioned is people with latex and nut allergies should be cautious of Shea Butter.  Shea butter is extracted from a nut and contains natural latex which has a similar chemical composition to the sap-like latex extracted from the Rubber Tree.  I understand that most latex allergy suffers experience no ill effects but it is advisable to patch test.  

A 120ml tub of Body Cream retails for £10.95 and Brown Earth also make body scrubs, soaps, shower gel and bath oil.
