It’s not often that we rave about a body cream, but sometimes one comes into our life that leaves us a little softer, a little smoother, and with a little more skip in our step. Joyous Health’s ‘Smooth Like Butta’ Body Butter — developed by Holistic Nutritionist and best-selling author Joy McCarthy — is one of those dream creams. Rich, indulgent and deliciously natural, you almost want to eat the stuff. But don’t. Use it on your skin instead. Or lips. Or hair.
Because when they say this is a “body butter,” they really mean head-to-toe FULL BODY butter. Yes, my friends, that includes your hair. Running just the slightest bit of this ‘butta’ through the ends of your hair is the perfect way to reduce frizz, tame flyaways, hydrate your locks and add a glossy finish to your ‘do. The trick is to just barely coat your fingers and concentrate application on the lower third of your hair. For thicker natural hair textures, you can be a bit more generous. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll have a mane so shiny and luscious, Jonathan Van Ness will be screaming “Yas, Queen!” from L.A.

As for skin, with its organic and natural ingredients (think mango seed and shea butters, coconut, sweet almond and grapeseed oils), the butter is suitable for even the most sensitive types. In fact, it’s great for babies too. Have dry or eczema prone skin? This stuff will help. One reviewer said it even helped repair her nails after peeling off a Shellac manicure. “I had to get shellac nails for a wedding, after a few weeks I peeled off the shellac and it left my nails all brittle and the surface scratched. I put the body butter overnight on my nails and couldn’t believe how much it had repaired my nails (the dryness and scratches were almost gone)!” And because the butter is so rich, a little goes a long way. In other words, the tub will last you a very long time. Convinced yet?
WHO IT’S FOR:
Anyone with a body, but especially for those looking for a high-performance moisturizer with high-quality ingredients.
