As a beauty writer, I always look for the hottest new products. But as a beauty lover, so many overhyped products fall short of delivering. So, I was initially hesitant to give in to the commotion surrounding Kopari’s Ultra Restore Body Butter. Right now, I have about three half-used body butter jars sitting on my beauty shelf. How special could Kopari’s body butter really be?
Once I saw that beauty editors Karie Berohn at Who What Wear and India Yaffee at POPSUGAR had given Kopari’s body butter their seal of approval, I had to get my hands on it to see if it was truly worth the hype. Here’s what I found when I tried it myself.
I’m obsessed with showing off my newfound soft skin
I love using Kopari’s Ultra Restore Body Butter on my feet to treat my desert-cracked heels. For as long as I can remember, my heels have always been super dry and looked dull. You can imagine how annoying this is, especially living in South Florida with sandals weather year-round! After a week or so of using this body butter every night, I’ve noticed the biggest difference in my heel’s skin texture–I can finally wear sandals without feeling conscious about how my cracked heels look.
Even my legs are glowing like never before. Paired with Kopari’s Exfoliating Crush Scrub, my legs are truly the smoothest they’ve been in years. I haven’t had to use oils or body glitter because I genuinely don’t need it! And with drier, colder weather coming up soon, you bet this body butter will be a permanent fixture in my body care routine.
This body butter transformed my body care routine
Kopari’s Ultra Restore Body Butter is the perfect end to my skincare and body care routine. After I apply it, I feel moisturized, glowy, and ready to take on the day. I’m so hooked on the results that I can’t see myself trading this body butter in for a standard lotion anytime soon. I love that you don’t have to use it for long before noticing a difference–it gave me the healthiest glow after a few uses.
There’s some science behind this body butter’s efficacy, too. Most body butters don’t have active ingredients like hyaluronic acid that are working around-the-clock to provide hydration to your skin. It’s clinically proven to boost the skin’s moisture by 2x! I’ve already noticed a major transformation, particularly on usually dry areas like my legs, elbows, and heels. This body butter’s incredible hydration and glow are reason enough for me to stock up on this jar for the foreseeable future.
This body butter is packed with effective, clean ingredients
Kopari’s clean, vegan body butter features some seriously buzzworthy ingredients: from hyaluronic acid to prickly pear flower extract to mango seed butter, this luscious, whipped body butter feels utterly divine when applied. The Ultra Restore Body Butter is lightweight when removed from the jar, but it feels rich, moisturizing, and decadent once it touches your skin.
Unlike other body butters I’ve tried, this one felt instantly nourishing. Kopari’s Ultra Restore Body Butter is best for hydrating and retaining moisture–hence the hyaluronic acid–and is ideal for targeting crepey and ultra-dry skin (which I definitely have). The rockstar ingredients in Kopari’s body butter are a huge departure from traditional drugstore lotions, and my skin is absolutely loving it.
My final verdict
I wasn’t sure if a body butter could live up to my beauty writer-slash-beauty-lover expectations, but I get why so many beauty editors are obsessed with Kopari’s Ultra Restore Body Butter! I got the original coconut scent and it smells so good, it’s creamy, and devilishly moisturizing. Knowing this body butter sold out within a week of launching, I can confidently say that the hype is 100% real!
