For the past few weeks I have given my skin a lift by using products offered by Carise’s Joy–whipped butter, hand and body scrub, and body butter. Listen. It’s so good that even my husband keeps dipping into the jars. This line of products are handcrafted and free of silicones, parabens, formaldehyde donors, mineral oils, or petroleum. Creator, Candace Gaiters, proudly uses “sustainable ingredients infused with natural butters and oils blended to perfection with LOVE and JOY”. The entire Carise’s Joy skincare line will be available for purchase online on its new site beginning January 19.
The line smells so good! I know, you’d rather know if the products are actually effective (and I’ll get to that), but each of the three jars of joy I have are incredibly, aromatically satisfying. This alone has me eager to apply it to my skin each and every day. Carise’s Joy offers both scented and unscented products. If you are a fragrance kind of girl (or guy) there are several scents for you to choose from:
Hand and Body Scrub
My rough hands and feet love the hand and body scrub. I use it three to four days a week while I shower and/or at night solely on my hands. The scrub immediately exfoliates and softens my skin and the Japanese Yuzu Citrus scent is absolutely refreshing. It’s not too coarse and feels like I’m rubbing brown sugar and oils onto my body.
The whipped butter is perfect for dry and damaged skin. My favorite time to use it is on my hands and a small amount on my face before bed. It comes out of the jar thick but almost instantly melts into your skin when applied. Only a little is needed to moisturize dry areas so the eight ounces of whipped butter can easily last a long time.
If I had to pick a favorite product from the entire line it would be the body butter. I wish you I could add a scratch and sniff sticker to this post so you could get a whiff of the amazing fragrance in my jar. You’ll get to choose your own scent, but the Love’s Joy scent is divine! The butter itself is incredibly moisturizing with a consistency similar to a thicker lotion. Like the whipped butter, only a little is needed to satisfy the skin.
I can honestly say that my skin, especially my hands, are smoother and retain the moisture provided by all of the Carise’s Joy products. I am finally taking care of me without the accompaniment of mom guilt.
