Carol's Daughter Body Butter

Almond Delight

by Laurie Hartzell
Almond Cookie Body Butter

Winter is always a harsh time for beauty. Sure, we get to celebrate the holidays and bake cookies and be surrounded with festive cheer, but this time of the year also means cracked hands and dry skin. Carol’s Daughter has combined a remedy for the winter skin blues with a scent that will get you cookie-baking in no time. Intended for very dry skin, the new Almond Cookie Body Butter contains shea butter, cocoa butter and other natural moisturizers. Added to the sweet smell of almond are undertones of vanilla and sandalwood, a combination which is oddly evocative of baby powder. Packaging is not forgotten in the creation of a suitable moisturizer, and each handy tin of body butter is topped with a symbol of its scent—this one revealed a whole almond set on the surface.
