Pros

Skin has never looked or felt less dry!

Cons

Packaging could be improved
A rich botanical cream that really helps dryness and crepey skin

The philosophy behind Kat Burki’s fragrance and skin care products is best expressed in these few lines from her website:

“Beauty is beauty, it’s a feeling we get and radiate when we see a beautiful room, or smell an intoxicating fragrance, or experience from a day of luxurious pampering at the Spa... Skincare should not only enhance and protect your beauty, but allow you to feel beautiful just as a special fragrance can.”

In short, elegance and pleasure for all the senses. At $62.00 for a 6 oz jar however, Kat Burki Raw Beauty Body Butter is normally a bit pricey for my taste. But I have to say that in this case, it’s worth every penny.  I’ve tried many “extra rich,” “maximum strength” and “very emollient” versions of other less expensive brands, and none of them really have any lasting effects.  And I have to believe that it’s because they all list “Aqua” as their first ingredient.  There is no water at all in Kat Burki’s Raw Beauty Body Butter! The very first ingredient listed is a “proprietary organic herb blend,” and the second one is Aloe Vera leaf juice, whose benefits to the skin are well documented as an anti-inflammatory, a protector against UV damage, a stimulator of fibroblast cells (which manufacture collagen) and an excellent cleanser, not to mention a moisturizing agent. The rest of the rich concoction is made up of various oils and butters, herbs, flowers and medicinal leaves.

The consistency is very pleasant and creamy, and it has a lovely fragrance that indeed brings to mind a mix of herbs and flowers. It spreads nicely and absorbs well without leaving a greasy after feel. I’ve been using it for a month and the jar is almost empty. I think that given its richness, one could easily use it every other time and still get excellent results. My skin has never looked or felt less crepe-like and dry since using this product. I’m very very pleased!

My one and only criticism is in the packaging. Raw Beauty Body Butter comes in a simple and attractively designed frosted glass jar. I don’t know if the exposure to UV light through the glass causes any diminishment of its effectiveness but I do know that sticking your fingers into an open jar does that while also contaminating the cream. I also don’t like scraping cream out from under my fingernails. One can certainly buy a cosmetic spatula or spoon, though it would be a welcomed perk to have one included in the box. 

Otherwise, I give this a big thumbs up!
