Ellovi Body Butter + Giveaway

Ellovi Body Butter | thevegancrew.com

When Kelly, the founder of Ellovi, contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing Ellovi Body Butter, I was stoked.  Not too long ago, I won an Ellovi gift card.  On the day my order arrived, we were headed to a birthday party and had no time to shop…so, somewhat reluctantly, I gifted the raw, handmade butter.  Though I’m always thrilled to share high-quality, cruelty-free products with others, I was really looking forward to trying it out for myself.  A few days later, I heard from Kelly — her timing was perfect!

What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in them, and that’s one of the reasons I love Ellovi.  Ellovi was founded “to disrupt a beauty industry ruled by products laden with artificial ingredients and cheap fillers.”  In a country that allows hundreds of questionable ingredients in beauty products — for example, only 10 ingredients are banned in the US, compared to over 1,000 in Europe — Ellovi is a breath of fresh air.

In addition to being vegan, Ellovi takes a firm stance against synthetic chemicals, parabens, preservatives, fillers and secret ingredients.  In fact, Butter has only a few ingredients, all of which are recognizable:  macadamia ternifolia seed oil (macadamia nut), cocos nucifera oil (coconut), cannabis sativa seed oil (hemp), corn starch and butyrospermum (shea).  Don’t you love that!?

But how does it work?  Amazingly well!

Many lotions and butters contain water, which can leave your skin feeling dry once it evaporates (not to mention that water necessitates preservatives).  Not with Butter!  The concentrated formula goes on lightly — no greasiness or stickiness — and helps to lock in moisture.  It has a light and clean scent, mostly from the shea.  Plus, it spreads easily and quickly melts into your skin, so a little goes a long way.

I really don’t have any criticisms — the packaging is sturdy and cute, the butter is fantastic, both of my orders were shipped almost immediately and, to boot, the folks at Ellovi are just plain nice.

I think you’ll love Ellovi Body Butter just as much as I do.  Ellovi has generously offered to give away one jar and three $10 gift cards — that means there will be four lucky winners!  Enter to win using the Rafflecopter box below (if you’re reading this via email or an RSS reader, you may need to click through to the site).  Can’t wait?  I don’t blame you!  You can order directly from Ellovi here.

    Winter is coming and my middle-aged skin is already SO dry! I could really use this body butter to relieve the dryness and itching.

  2. Chelsea says

    I love really rich body care products made from non-scary sounding ingredients. In the past I’ve used coconut oil, right now I’m using whipped shea butter, but I would love to try this!

  3. Candy says

    I just love the richness of pure oils on my skin. I have made my own concoctions in the past, but sometimes I just don’t have the motivation to do it on a regular basis. I would love to have a product that I don’t have to feel guilty using! I hope I win!

    I would love to win because my skin always becomes ridiculously dry as winter approaches. I constantly have to reapply lotion to my hands so I am always on the lookout for effective moisturizers.

  5. Deanna says

    Looking down at my dry hands as I type this :( I’ve been searching for good vegan creams. Maybe i’ll have to try this out!

    In addition to the cold air and wind, we live on a well. So we have to put salt into the softener, and the harsh water and salt make my skin so dry. I can use all the help I can get keeping my skin soft!

  7. Jenny says

    I’d like to win because I like to try/sample products before I buy them and since this product is only available online I wouldn’t just buy it so offering a GC is a great way to get people like me to try something new and different. Thanks!

  8. Alexis says

    I would like to try this because I get horrible dry skin in the winter. Winter is just moving into NC, and it’s a great time to start gearing up!

  9. Chrystalynn says

    I am excited to try this!! Even if I don’t win I am going to order I have loved trying things from The vegan crew’s blog even though I’m not vegan!!

    I enjoy really loaded entire body maintenance systems constructed from non-scary sounding ingredients. In the past I’ve used coconut fat, today I’m using whipped shea butter, but My spouse and i sooo want to try this!
