Then, I met Juara's Candlenut Body Creme, and everything changed. This stuff has transformed me from a lotion agnostic to a woman who looks forward to slathering on moisturizer before bed. The thick, luxe cream is similar to a body butter, and I know what you're probably thinking: "Body butter, schmody butter — those are so greasy." Not this one. It melts right into my skin, leaving a soft sheen and no residue. Plus, the formula's candlenut oil is chock-full of essential fatty acids (always good for the ol' epidermis). Perhaps most alluring, the light scent is beautiful — vaguely tropical, slightly sweet — and all the "perfume" I need to wear on most days. Completely, completely worth every penny.
Juara Candlenut Body Creme, $35, available at Juara.
