When we cast our minds back to the innocent days of high school beauty routines, there were three items we took very seriously: lip gloss (Juicy Tubes, of course), Impulse body spray, and most importantly, body butter. Every Christmas or birthday wish list was manipulated in some way to ensure we could get our hands on another body butter.
In the same way teens now are (apparently) amassing “Snapchat streaks”, we were focused on building the ultimate body butter collection. But at some point, along with packing away our jelly bracelets and transitioning to real deodorant, we stopped using body butter.
The good news is, the resurgence of everything ’90s means we can clear a space on our counters for body butters again. And why not? Even the name sounds delicious (and clearly means they are superior to lotion). And for those of us trying to limit our intake of actual butter, the idea of a having a free pass to coat our bodies in a pseudo skincare spread has got us saying, “Yes, please.”
Scroll to see the grown-up body butters that will leave you smelling like the beach and your skin feeling like some kind of whipped dessert. This is one ’90s staple you won’t regret adding back into your routine.
