This DIY Coconut Orange Body Butter is basically like pina coloda meets orange sherbet.
If you're looking for a body butter to lather on after a long day in the sun, you've come to the right place.
Beach Days are great since you have the chance to unwind, get a bit of a tan, and enjoy the smell/sound of the ocean. But, as relaxing as it is, you always leave sandy, and sometimes, your skin can be dry from the salt and sunshine.
The result? Dry, patchy skin. The solution? This yummy scented body butter. The ingredients are naturally moisturizing, so it ensures you'll feel baby skin soft after use.
Coconut Oil is a natural emollient, meaning it is smooth to apply, and gives the appearance of hydrated skin.
