Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter

The days are turning colder, my friends. The wind is nipping at my neck, my nose is starting to run incessantly, and my skin is turning drier than the remnants of autumn leaves scattered along the sidewalks. What product do I turn to in desperate times (or rather, any time)? Haus of Gloi's Pumpkin Butter of course!

I purchased my first HoG pumpkin butter two years ago after reading about the brand on beauty blogs (of course) and haven't looked back since. Sure, I've dabbled in the lotions of other brands, some of them much more expensive than this little gem, but nothing hydrates as efficiently or beautiful as the buttah, as I like to call it. Gloi have a great formulation here- the cream is thick and very emollient yet seems to soak into the skin in a matter of moments, leaving nary a grease streak nor slickness. My skin stays moisturized throughout the day without need for reapplication and I love how supple it feels. I genuinely believe this butter repairs the skin- after months of use my skin does feel less dry even when I neglect to put it on after my shower.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 
What, though, is one of my favorite parts of buying HoG's Pumpkin Butter? Their seasonal scents! Right now I have Eggnoggin and Parkin- I'm obsessed with both. Eggnoggin smells insanely similar to the real thing (I have to stop myself from tasting it). Rum, spices, cream, it's all in there and it all smells authentic. Parkin is even yummier- I detect notes of chestnut, brown sugar, spices, and a warmth similar to that of musk. It's addictive to check back on their website every now and then to see what new scents they've concocted in their laboratory.

I also love supporting the brand- they're a vegan company based in the U.S., owned and operated by a lovely couple, Britton and Matt, who always make sure to include a sample vial of perfume and thank you note with anything I've ever purchased- It shows they truly care about their customers and enjoy what they do. Something about supporting real people rather than a corporation is also immensely rewarding.

The price for a full size 6 oz. tub of Pumpkin Butter is $10.00 (although sample sizes are available for $4.50) This is a very reasonable price when you consider the labor, creativity, and care that goes into these beauties. I highly recommend you give Haus of Gloi a try- their honest, effective, beautiful products are worth the price of admission, and then some.
