5 Reasons I Swear By Our Magnesium Body Butters
Posted by Rachael Gibson
I’m all for a multi-tasking product and it doesn’t get much better than our Magnesium Body Butters. With five different formulas, all promising a slightly different purpose and scent, here are the reasons I can’t be without each and every one of them…
1. They Give My Overall Wellbeing A Boost
Whilst I am conscious of getting enough magnesium through the foods I eat, applying these blissful body butters are another great way of reaping the many health benefits of this mighty mineral. Not yet heard all about their magic powers? Have a read of this. Just 5ml (or a heaped tablespoon is that’s easier) contains 88g of magnesium and unlike some body butters, a little really does go a long way.
2. They’re Great For Post-Running Recovery
With a half marathon soon approaching, I’ve been upping my miles slowly but surely and have without fail been applying the Complete Bliss butter post-run. It not only feels instantly cooling on my legs, but throughout the day they’re much less achy too. I’ve also noticed my recovery time is far shorter – so much so, that I even feel ready to take on another run the next day.
3. They Help Me To Sleep Better
The past 12-18 months has seen my sleep a little more disturbed than usual, but if there’s one thing I can rely on to help me prepare for a better night’s sleep, it’s the Perfect Night’s Sleep Magnesium Body Butter. Blended with 13 different essential oils such as English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine, the scent is instantly calming. My pre-bedtime routine after a hectic day is always to apply this after a long soak (using our Bedtime Hero Bath Foam of course) which almost always guarantees I wake up feeling well rested.
4. They Make My Skin Feel Super Soft & Smell Divine
Undeniably one of my favourite benefits is that every one of the five butters has been expertly formulated with an abundance of skin-loving ingredients to leave your skin feeling super soft and nourished. My favourite? The Real Luxury which is packed with shea butter, grapeseed oil and coconut oil to really soothe my skin and give it a welcome dose of hydration too. Renowned for its reparative properties, the shea butter and coconut oil work wonders on my often-dry skin, and I love how quickly it absorbs with absolutely no greasy residue. Oh, and the smell is absolutely divine – so much so, it’s instantly calming and really does give spa-like vibes. It’s blended with jasmine, lavender and Brazilian rosewood so it’s a unique combination of sweet and floral, but with a woody undertone.
5. They Kickstart My Mornings
Whilst I’m usually a morning person and don’t struggle to get going, there are some days that I do turn to coffee and our Great Day Magnesium Body Butter. The fresh and zesty scent is so uplifting and the inclusion of essential oils such as wild mint and mandarin really does help to lift my mood. This one is usually my Monday morning go-to for perking me up.
