Haus of Gloi Aether Pumpkin Butter

I've read so many wonderful and delicious reviews on the Haus Of Gloi range so finally when the Valentine collection came out almost two months ago I took the plunge. Luckily, at the same time Haus of Gloi came out with the new fragrance-free line called Aether. There are three products in this line: Bubble Scrub, Pumpkin Butter and Sugar Exfoliant. 

The Pumpkin Butter has a lovely creamy consistency somewhere between a body milk and a thick body butter - it actually reminds me of mayonnaise. It sinks into the skin really quickly and leaves it soft and moisturised. There is no artificial fragrance in this product and it has a very subtle scent, almost a bit foody (it might be the pumpkin oil).

Now I do like this product but to me it's simply not as good as my La Roche Posay Lipikar Baume AP (see, I'm calling it my, that must mean that I really love that stuff!). The LRP actually helped me with my dermatitis and it keeps my very dry skin moisturised and smooth all day. The HoG Aether Pumpkin Butter is not as thick as the LRP but it also doesn't keep my skin moisturised nearly as well / as long as the Lipikar Baume. I think the HoG Aether Pumpkin Butter would be best suited for people with normal to dry skin that are sensitive to highly fragranced products.

The Haus of Gloi Aether Pumpkin Butter is available here (by the way, the customer service was great)and costs 4.50$ for a 2 oz. sample jar / 9.00$ for a full-size 6 oz. jar.
