Tasty Lotions Just in Time for Spring

04/13/2007 at 03:30 PM ET

Lately, the new body products showing up in the beauty department are making us hungry. Check out these body butters — all of which are food-inspired: Savannah Bee Company’s Royal Jelly Body Butter, $22, which has pecan butter and royal jelly (the beehive-derived mix of natural vitamins, proteins and sugars that’s deep nourishing and moisturizing for skin), and an addictive blackberry scent. Korres, a cult-fave skincare line from Greece, has a new Guava Body Butter, $20, with vitamin C-rich sweet guava extract and antioxidant-jammed sunflower, almond and avocado oils all in a skin-softening shea butter base. Olivina Napa Valley’s Classic Olive Body Butter, $25, is an all-natural blend of olive and grapeseed oils, chamomile flowers, alga and aloe vera — and it comes in this adorable vintage-y glass jar. Or pick up the Boots Mediterranean Olive Sage Almond Wonderbalm, $9, which is already a best seller for the line — and works everything from elbows to heels. All these creams are super-rich, which makes them particularly great for rough patchs, like elbows and knees (and they’re miraculously healing on dry cuticles, too).
