Skin Free Whipped Tamanu Body Butter Review

The Polynesians discovered the healing and protective properties of Tamanu oil, and I discovered the greatness of Skin Free's Whipped Tamanu Body Butter. Skin Free combines Tamanu oil with Organic Extra Virgin Olive and rich Shea to make this whipped body butter. This body butter helps to sooth, heal and renew sun-damaged skin, eczema, psoriasis and reduce scarring.

It's scent free, so you can pair it with your favorite perfume and it won't clash. I used this whole tub in less than a month. I try to stay away from perfumed lotion after being in the sun, since my skin is more sensitive. I would use the Tamanu Body Butter after being outside in the sun and I loved the way it made my skin feel...smooth and refreshed.

Tamanu Body Butter is $18.99 for an 8 oz tub. If you have sensitive skin, and are into all natural products, I think it's worth checking out. Check out the Skin Free blog and read up on their latest products and sales.
