The Reluctant Stylista

I have just run out of my usual body butter, and fortunately, I was lucky enough to get this in one of my recent press kits: ONE Naturales Vanilla Almond Custard.

They call this “dessert for the skin” and the variant I got sounds especially yummy.  It’s a big, recyclable tube containing 236ml worth of the stuff.

ONE stands for organic, natural and environmental-friendly.  I usually buy my body butter from Human Heart Nature pretty much for the same reasons, so no complaints here.  I was immediately taken by the quaint packaging, since I like the utilitarian look (I like staring at Muji for this reason).

What it’s made of:

Water, sweet almond oil, linseed seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, glycerin, stearic acid, polysorbate 60, stearyl alcohol, aromtic oil, phenoxyethanol, lavendar oil, tocopheryl acetate, yellow #5, red #33, blue#.

What I like about this product:

Organic and environment-friendly.  That’s already a given, because if you know me, you know that I fully support organic products.  I’m not sure if it’s locally-made (always a plus point), as it says that it’s formulated in New Jersey, but it is a brainchild of Charade Galang.  I also like the packaging, as I mentioned earlier, although if it were up to me I would’ve made the label on the tube even more minimalist.  A couple of more points for being recyclable!

Lovely scent. I do like my lotions on the dessert-smelling side.

Not runny. Organic products can sometimes be a bit runny or watery, but I’m glad that this isn’t.  It wasn’t greasy at all, and it was quickly absorbed by my skin.

Quite full to the brim. When I opened the tube, it was practically bursting.  It was packed!  I feel like you’re getting your money’s worth for that much product.

Best of all: it stood the scratch test.  I did not have dry skin at all for the whole day. AMAZING.

What I don’t like about the product:

It’s a minor thing, but I found the big tube unweildy at first.  You can’t make it stand since the lid is smaller than the rest of the body.  Eventually, I got used to it–it’s just like handling a really jumbo toothpaste tube.  Careful not to get it too squished since it’s tin.  It’s not plastic, but it is recyclable so that more than makes up for the bit of inconvenience.

Available in select SM Department Stores and Watsons branches.

  1. I haven’t even opened my tube yet. I still have Human Nature body butter to finish up before I proceed to this one. Hehe.

      Actually, I don’t know yet as this was just part of the press kit. I’m gonna check it out later at Watsons. But I heard the lip balms start at 100+ and the body scrubs start at 500+?

    For me its greasy and it takes some time for the lotion to be absorbed by the skin. Although i looove the smell, I prefer lotions with dessert scents too.

    When I first saw this at Watson’s I confused it with ONE Bath and Body Products. They have almost the same packaging. I wonder if they’re related?
