I was sent this Gratiae body butter in the scent passion fruit and lime to try out. Lately I've been trying to keep my face healthy with babyganics sunscreen as well as Sunergetic pills and the more I thought about it the more I realized it isn't just the skin on my face that I should me making look (and smell) nice, and with the Gratiae body butter and it's organic ingredients I can do jus that.
Starting with the packaging, as may complaints as I could have about how hard it is to photograph this lotion, I actually like the bottle a lot. It's very different than your average tube of body body butter, and isn't some big billboard for Gratiae. The top is an easy twist open, and I love that it has a safety seal. Even though this is a round bottle it has a large enough base that it doesn't tip over.
The smell of this lotion, passion fruit & lime, is subtle and much more grown up than I'm used to. The lotion is an off white and very thick, but doesn't take much to work into the skin. I didn't have any greasy shine or left over residue after use, just soft skin.
Overall I really like the Gratiae body butter. The passion fruit and lime scent smells great, and seems sophisticated, as does the circular minimalist bottle design. After using it for a week I noticed my skin felt a whole lot softer, and smooth.
