I can admit it. I am a big baby about the cold. Funny that I choose to live in Chicago, where winter lasts half the year and is especially brutal. This winter in particular seems a bit extreme weather-wise. At this time of year, I need to treat myself as much as possible. One of my favorite wintertime mini-indulgences is body butter. Dry, cold air does a number on skin so it’s especially important to keep skin hydrated. But beyond ordinary lotions, body butters are a sensory experience due to their thick and creamy texture and delicious scents. Soothe dry winter skin and pamper yourself with these 17 rich body butters.
