First off, this is a review for the New Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter. I am very pleased with it. I'd been looking for something to treat my KP daily with, and while Derma Doctor's treatment worked out really great, I felt like I was spending a lot of money using the scrub 2X a week, lotion twice a day, and using my PTR Glycolic Wash in addition to my regular soap and body lotion. One review mentioned that she uses Buffy for her KP, and thus began my research on the Lush's Body Butters. I'd been using their Henna for years, so I was already a fan. But I never got into their skincare, only the bath accessories and dyes. I decided to get Aqua Mirabilis and Buffy (which entitled me to the free tin, which I love) and try them both out to see which one worked better. I'm very sensitive, so I decided to try out the Aqua first in case Buffy was too much too soon. I don't have a verdict yet on Buffy, but the Aqua is doing an amazing job! I wash by body regularly (with my Olivella soap and Salux cloth), then use this just on the areas I have KP (the backs of my arms). I don't scrub with the bar. I apply a bit on until I have a good amount of Almond Shells and Shea, then put the bar back in the tin and rub the product in with my hands. This helps be conserve product and be more gentle. While I still follow up with my regular body lotion, I don't have to use a separate one just for my KP since Aqua is so moisturizing. I've seen such a dramatic difference and I couldn't be happier. My boyfriend even noticed it! I don't know how Buffy is going to work, but if it's anything like Aqua, I think I've found my KP solution! The only thing I don't like (surprise, surprise) is how quickly it melts. I did take one mark off for that. At the rate I'm going I can't see this lasting more than 2 months. Darn it. But still, $12 is better than the cost of all the products I was using before and it works way better. Very happy with this product.
Edit: I started making my own version of this, and it works just as well without the cost. I melt coconut oil, and shea butter together, add some ground up almonds, and a few drops of rose, lavender, tea tree, lemon, and sandalwood essential oils, then pour into an egg mold. It solidifies in the fridge and works the same as the LUSH product.
