Body creams, lotions and butters are my Holy Grails. I use them every day even during the summer. I really envy those gals who can set off for traveling having no body butter or lotion with them. I can’t live without them at all. Usually, I don’t check-in my luggage when I travel and deluxe samples, like this one, a 30ml tube come in really handy.

Purlisse Coconut Oil + Cranberry Silky Body Butter

It looks exactly like the full version but smaller in size. The front side promises smoothing, hydration, nourishing and deep moisture. I need all that!

This is what the product promises:

  • The founder of this brand, a former actress and Power Ranger villain (yes, really!), draws from Asian beauty secrets to develop these high-quality formulas.

  • This nourishing body butter is made with healthy ingredients, like coconut oil, to smooth, hydrate, and deeply moisturize skin.

  • Antioxidant-rich cranberry helps fight free radicals and protects your skin from environmental damage.

  • It’s lightweight, fast-absorbing, and not the least bit greasy. Plus, it gives you a subtle glow wherever you apply.

Why the Asian beauty secrets? You see, the founder of the brand, Jane Yen is the daughter of Asia, so to say. She combines the cosmetic traditions of her people and modern technology in her brand.


The butter was made in the USA.

The ingredients list is rather long, so they didn’t list it there on the deluxe sample, so I’ll copy it from the official site:

Water (Aqua), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Olivate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Squalane, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Sesamum Indicum Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Butylene Glycol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Extract, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Phosphate, Polysorbate-60, Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Diheptyl Succinate, Maltodextrin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Sodium Hydroxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance (Parfum)

Oh Gosh, look at all those extracts! I guess the moisture will be out of this world! In theory. I’ll test it out.

Let’s remove that foil sealing, placed under the top cap.

The product offers the simplest nozzle.

That’s weird for a body butter, isn’t it? The product is thick and butter, how the hell am I supposed to get it out through that tiny nozzle?But in fact, this butter offers regular moisturizer consistency that comes through it nicely.

This way, it’s easy to get out and apply. It soaks in almost immediately.

It smells good of herbs with sweet notes. No coconut or cranberry…

The smell fades away quickly and doesn’t linger to my skin.

At first, it feels like the product hydrates and nourishes my skin properly because I can see my skin is soft and moisturized. If not only the fatty film all over my skin from it! It doesn’t set and even when I used this product overnight, in the morning I could feel that my hands were as though covered with that nasty film.

When I washed it off, my skin underneath was thirsty and calling for immediate moisture! What the hell was this product doing there on my skin all night if I still didn’t get any moisture?

I used it as a body butter for a couple of times only. I didn’t like it at all due to that very filming effect.

I leave it aside and now can use it only as a hand and foot cream but still, it doesn’t work there well too. My skin feels dry under that terrible film it forms.

This butter is so weird. I never recommend it.

By the way, the full size of the Purlisse Butter costs 24 bucks on the official site. What? Sorry, but will never recommend it twice then.
