Savannah Bee Royal Jelly Body Butters

I was fortunate to win these Savannah Bee Royal Jelly Body Butters in a giveaway hosted by Beauty InfoZone recently.  At first I thought I'd give them to my mom for mother's day, but I really wanted them all for myself.   So, I kept them :-)
They would make a lovely gift, as the packaging is top of the line.  From the gift bag to the sturdy boxes to the lovely design and colors, they make a wonderful impression.
These are the mini-sizes jars (1.65 oz) and fit nicely in the palm of my hand.  Fortunately, the texture of the cream is dense and a little goes a long way.  I've been using them mainly as a hand cream before I go to bed, as the fragrance helps relax me and I love a rich cream on my hands at night.
My favorite of the two scents is the sensitive skin version, which features the fragrance of chamomile combined with myrrh.  The scent is mild but lasts, as I've smelled traces of it when I wake up in the morning.  You get idea of how rich this is from the ingredient list:

Ingredients:  purified water, organic aloe vera leaf juice, vegetable glycerin, isoamyl laurate, cetearyl alcohol, babassu butter, hydrogenated cocoglycerides, glyceryl stearate citrate, capuacu butter, cocoa butter, ethylhexyl olivate, d-panthenol (provitamin b5), sodium behenoyl lactylate, lauryl laurate, olive oil unsaponifiables, chamomile extract (caprylic/capric triglyceride & anthemis nobilis flower extract), pecan oil, shea butter, natural BEESWAX, orange peel wax, glyceryl caprylate, raw ROYAL JELLY, chondrus crispus extract & glucose, sodium levulinate, natural alpha bisabolol, cetyl hydroxyethyl cellulose, PROPOLIS extract, sodium anisate, potassium sorbate, HONEY, allantoin, d-alpha tocopherol (natural vitamin e), sea buckthorn fruit oil, may chung oil, myrrh oil, orange peel extract, sodium phytate (naturally derived from rice bran), patchouli oil, camphor oil
The original formula has a fragrance of wild berries and vanilla combined with  rose and gardenia.  It's very nice as well and I can definitely smell the blackberries.  Think "blackberries growing in a field" as opposed to "blackberry jam" - really quite lovely.
The mini-jar gift set is $26, and if you sign up at Savannah Bee's web site you can get a 10% off coupon code for your first purchase.  I'm happy to have discovered Savannah Bee via the giveaway and am perusing the site to see what else they offer!
