Everyone has their product that they swear by, mine is Ancient Cosmetics Dry Double Butter. The older I become the more my skin changes and one of those changes includes dry skin. It definitely doesn’t help that I live in a dry climate like Southern California. My skin regiment includes exfoliating my skin every other day, followed by my Aveeno moisturizing face wash bar, and Aveeno body lotion right after. I have had this regiment since I was sixteen years old and with my sensitive skin, this regiment seemed to work. I am not that sixteen-year-old girl anymore. Recently I noticed that my regiment is leaving my skin drier than usual. I don’t like putting oily products on my skin so searching for another product has always been a challenge for me. I am very skeptical about new skincare products to use. Aveeno is great for sensitive skin but I needed something a bit stronger so I came across Ancient Cosmetics Dry Skin Double Butter.
The first few days after using this product was a noticeable difference. In addition to Aveeno, I used the Ancient Cosmetics Double Butter for my struggle areas for dry skin such as elbows, upper arms, feet, hands, and backside. This amazing body butter never leaves my skin feeling oily or like I have product residue on my skin. After a few hours of applying the Double Butter, my skin still feels soft and moisturized even after I wash my hands. If you don’t get into a nail shop for a pedicure like myself, this product is perfect for you during flip flop season. Every night I scrub the bottoms of my feet with a pumice stone in the shower, then apply lotion when I get out and my feet are usually dry and are visibly flaky before I leave my house, but with the Ancient Cosmetics Double Butter my feet don’t feel or look dry, and they are actually improving. Although I have been using this body butter on myself I thought I'd try this product on my daughter.
My daughter suffers from eczema that has gotten better over the years but she still occasionally has her flair up moments a few times a year. Her skin can get so dry and therefore itchy that she will at times begin to bleed. I decided to try my Ancient Cosmetics Double Butter
on the back of her right thigh during one of her flairs instead of the normal hydrocortisone and in two days her eczema, her itching, and her inflammation began to disappear. There are so many products that we have tried for her eczema and the products that actually help her skin are so expensive and do not come in large enough quantities. This Body Butter is not only affordable but I don’t need to use a lot of butter because it spreads fairly well.
This is the first product from Ancient Cosmetics that I used and definitely intend on discovering all that they have to offer. The ingredients are natural and don’t contain anything that I can’t pronounce it only contains Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil. If you suffer from dry, sensitive skin like me, I definitely recommend you add the Ancient Cosmetics Double Butter in your skincare routine you won't be disappointed!
