No, the Spinster Sisters are not an ’80s new wave synth pop duo. It’s the name of an indie beauty brand from Colorado that I spotted at a bookstore this afternoon. (Side note: I went looking for Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians, but they didn’t have it, gah! I really want to read it before the movie comes out.)
I love their logo! I can picture two spinster sisters in an old-timey apothecary with glass bottles and brass industrial shelves, crushing herbs by hand with a mortar and pestle before brewing up a batch of soap and body butter. I wanna display their soaps and lotions on a decorative shelf in the guest bathroom. 🙂
I bought a small 2-oz. tube of their Lavender Body Butter, which was $8.99. It contains shea butter, sweet almond oil, avocado oil and vitamin E, among other things, and it’s made without phtahlates or parabens.
Water, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF, fair-trade Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Stearic Acid, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Leuconostoc/ Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus and Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Oil, and Essential Oil (EO) or Fragrance Oil (FR) [scent options note if EO or FR is used]
The lavender scent is strong, but I like it. It’s sooo relaxing, and it lingers long after I’ve massaged it into my skin.
“This indulgent Body Butter is made with only the finest and freshest ingredients. Avocado oil helps protect skin against irritants and calms itchy and dry skin. This super oil mixed with shea butter — a high-fat butter that contains naturally occurring vitamins A and E — provides you a ridiculously luxurious and intensely moisturizing Body Butter. Because of the nature of shea butter, continued use can soothe the uncomfortable side effects of eczema, skin rashes, sunburns, and razor burn. It can also fade the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Our Body Butter will moisturize and protect even the driest of skins.
Spinster Sisters Co. uses Fair Trade Shea Butter.”
I’m looking forward to covering every inch of myself with it tonight after my shower to help me unwind for bed. 🙂
