You've already heard me speak about this product once (in my last post) and now I've got a full-on rave coming your way. I am ridiculously head over heels about this product - it is heavenly.
As I mentioned briefly in the previous post, I received Cuccio Naturale's Pomegranate & Fig Butter Blend in my November Topbox last year and quickly dismissed it as 'just another body butter' to be used for vacation/holiday trips. It remained in storage until I got a gym membership recently and had to pack a toiletries bag with some shower goodies for after I workout. I remember liking the scent when I first sniffed the tube back when I first got it but it was a brand I wasn't familiar with so I didn't have any expectations of it. Or at least I didn't think I was going to be blown away by it....
I couldn't be more wrong.
This body butter blend was absolute love at first application. It has quite a thick consistency as you can see in the photo below, which initially led me to think that it would be the sticky/greasy type, but when I spread it through my hands it magically thinned out and absorbed into my skin at lightning fast. But what really pushed me over the edge into purchasing a full size tub of this stuff was the way it made my skin feel just seconds later - silky, smooth, utter luxuriousness. It's a lot like cream makeup products that have a cream-to-powder finish. The end result is zero tackiness and one hundred percent comfortable moisture! And have I mentioned the scent that is the most amazing fusion of pomegranate and fig? It's there but not in a strong or overpowering way - perfect for a product that you may be slathering all over your body. It's just really nice and fresh and quite a "big girl" scent, if that makes sense. This butter blend comes in other scents as well which I'm planning to purchase in the future - papaya and guava nectar, milk and honey, lemongrass and lavender, and tuscan citrus herb (with bergamot and clary sage). Don't they all sound delicious?!
Pretty much the only thing I don't like about this product is how hard it is to get a hold of! Once I realized that I needed this product in my life, I did of bit of research as to where I could pick one up only to find out that they don't sell this stuff anywhere. In fact, Cuccio Naturale as a brand is only sold to spa and salon professionals. Ridiculous! Cuccio Naturale, if you're reading this - I bet you would turn a hell of a profit if you made this widely available to the public!!! So I turned to eBay and purchased this massive 8 oz. tub for roughly $10+shipping. It felt like such a luxury product that I expected it to be more expensive, so the price is totally worth it in my opinion.
This now sits on my bedside table to be used whenever I'm feeling a bit dry anywhere or even when I just want a refreshing scent to give me a bit of a jolt! Cuccio Naturale's Pomegranate & Fig Butter Blend makes me a happy camper. :)
