LATHER Sofian Lavender Whipped Body Creme
LATHER Sofian Lavender Whipped Body Creme ($22.00 for 4.0 oz.) is a Bulgarian lavender-scented body cream that comes in a squat, round plastic pot. I’ve been using this body cream for the past couple of weeks before I slip into my pajamas and go to bed, and I really love how fast it absorbs. It has a lighter weight to it, being a whipped cream, than a heavier body butter, but it’s not loose like a lotion. It’s an airy body butter or cream, so it spreads well and doesn’t stick. It absorbs quickly, and it doesn’t turn sticky. The cream hydrates my scaly, dragon skin well (I’m horrible at committing to hydrating my body parts–face, I never skip, the rest… well…) and generally, I feel like it’s been improving the texture of my skin overall, not just when I use it.
Long-time readers will know that I love lavender-scented body products. It’s my go-to scent for when I want to (try to) relax. I love it on my skin, on my bed sheets, and on my pillow at night. I don’t like it to smell too medicinal, but I don’t want it to smell too sweet or perfume-y. I still want a natural, herbaceous quality to come through. The lavender in this body cream is perfect; soft, elegant, and natural. There’s no sweetness from added vanilla, but it doesn’t smell medicinal at all. It lingers on the skin but doesn’t project, so it’s something I can smell when I’m tucked away in bed, but nobody else will smell if they come near me.
