I pretty much had no idea what to expect when I signed up to test The Butters Aloe x Shea – would it turn into my new favourite?
I try, if at all possible not to read reviews of products I want or sign up for before they arrive as I feel this would subconsciously affect or sway my opinions. I had however seen so many photos and reviews pop up on my twitter and on my Insta, all shouting out positive things regarding The Butters so I was pretty certain I was going to love it and well, I do! In fact, I’d go as far as saying I love it more than any other lube I own. What a statement – I own Sliquid! But I really feel down to how versatile The Butters Aloe x Shea is, it gives it a cutting edge above all my other lubes.
The packaging for the The Butters Aloe x Shea has a very medicinal feel to it. It feels like someone has made it at home and even the label which isn’t 100% straight on the tub contributes to that feel. But the label confirms these feels claiming it is in fact “handmade at home with love”. The label also claims that The Butters Aloe x Shea contains “no bullshit” – I frigging love this! Straight talking and definitely to the point which in my opinion shows a company that is extremely proud of their product, has nothing to hide and can back up what it claims it can do. It also comes hygienically sealed.
Recently, I saw a tweet which advertised all the health benefits The Butters have and amongst them all lube was thrown in. This product is certainly more than just your typical lube. Aptly named The Butters, which I am guessing is from its appearance as well as the ingredient list, The Butters may look buttery but don’t let that put you off because its appearance changes once this velvety feeling substance touches the skin and melts, a smooth, silky soft lubricant which makes my skin feel fabulous is left behind.
Look at that list <3 Wow not many lubes can claim to do all that.
I personally use my Butters Aloe x Shea for more than just a lube.
I like to shave my pubic hair – not all the time but I enjoy having the option to do so. I get sick of looking at it so it can vary from a full on bush, to completely bare or to my usual landing strip, which has been the favourite recently of both myself and my OH. As a result, day 2 post shave with sex, knickers and the friction both create I end up being quite tender. Red, sore skin be gone with instant relief from using my Butters Aloe x Shea. It cools, calms and soothes my skin – regardless of the area. I just happen to love that it also contains apple cider vinegar, which is known for having so many health benefits. One of the biggest is that to helps prevent yeast infections. And as someone who has previously gotten one, man am I happy to use a product that actively tries to prevent an infection from occurring. It also helps to balance the bodies natural PH too.
The Butters Aloe x Shea is made using so many well known products which support body wellness and is completely free from scents, dyes and other hidden nasties that can be found in other lubes on the market.
One of kids suffers dry skin, as do I, my OH has a beard, my feet were dry, couldn’t find my regular moisturizer, lubing up my menstrual cup…. I used my Butters Aloe x Shea for all of these. It can also be used for so much more.
A little goes a long way – I’ve had my tube quite a while and to be honest, I haven’t even put a dent in it yet.
It’s frigging awesome.
