I discovered Base Butter a few years ago but hadn't had an opportunity to try their product until I found it in-store at the Her Market storefront in Buckhead Shoppes. The Base Butter moisturizer is an aloe vera gel-based formula perfect for layering with other moisturizers for the ideal balance.
If you struggle with managing oil in your T-zone, I highlyyyy suggest this product! For years I struggled with being too oily or too dry, and even when I had a nice "glow," my T-zone was still greasy. This product alone carried me through the summer. I usually struggle to find a balance with my moisturizer, but this was a lifesaver.
The main component in Base Butter's formula is aloe vera which is good for soothing the skin. Aloe vera is rich in vitamins A, C, E, and B12 and can treat skin conditions like acne, eczema, and sunburn. The gel base gives the moisturizer a nice lightweight texture. In my experience with this product, I like to layer it with other moisturizers for the perfect skincare cocktail.
My skin changes throughout the seasons and I've personally found that I tend to shy away from this moisturizer in the drier months. I switch out moisturizers depending on my skin's specific needs at the time. Everyone's skin barrier has different concerns, and in the winter, mine gets so dry it's giving reptile.. Aside from that, this is the perfect warm-weather moisturizer or for those who are oily year round! Pack it in your bag for a vacation to the tropics and don't forget your damn sunscreen 🧴💋.
