I Switched Up My Skincare Routine For This Black-Owned Line & I Stan


Summer has officially ended however we don't have to let go of that natural sun-kissed glow, thanks in part to the natural benefits of warm weather. As we transition into fall, there are still ways of achieving radiant hydrated skin during the dull cold weather months. About a year ago, I discovered the perfect combination to my everyday beauty routine, eliminating excessively oily skin transitioning into a smooth, satin-like glowy complexion I had no idea was achievable using four easy-to-use products.

While celebrities like Alicia Keys make effortless skin look easy, Dorion Renaud of Buttah Skincare makes it possible. Dedicated to enriching skincare for all multicultural tones along with cruelty-free products created using organic ingredients, you'll love Buttah for its mission to create an authentic glow from the inside out. I tried Buttah's popular transformation kit complete with a facial cleanser, Vitamin C serum, and cocoa shea butter, easily providing glowing smooth-as-butter skin instantly. For an ultra shine and buttery finish, this kit is for all those needing extra moisture for an extended summer glow.

My Buttah Skincare Review

Step 1: Cleanser

The first step to buttery smooth skin is the ultra-lightweight and clear facial cleanser that gently removes impurities while adding essential oils as well as prepping your face for the additional products to achieve your skin's ultimate glow. Whether challenged with dry, oily, or combination skin, this cleanser promises effective results for all with daily and consistent use. After squeezing a quarter-sized amount of product on my fingertips, I felt it best to rub together for a nice foaming effect before applying.

Step 2: Rose Water Toner

Not included in this kit but a great option for extra cleansing is the addition of a facial toner to this routine. Not an absolute must however, I love using this product after washing my face because it picks up stubborn makeup and excess dirt missed by my facial cleanser.

Step 3: Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C serum is the key ingredient to achieving smooth and radiant skin, period. The best addition to my everyday routine, this particular serum has done wonders for my skin after discovering the nutrient two years ago.

Buttah offers a super lightweight serum that may be perfect for those who prefer products that aren't made with a thick consistency. Although I wish this particular Vitamin C Serum was a bit thicker in texture, it is a thin layer of added nutrients that balances out the CocoShea Revitalizing Cream soon to follow. Apply 4-5 drops to freshly cleansed and dry skin to then be followed up with the shea butter as the final touch to an enriching skincare experience.

Step 4: CocoShea Revitalizing Cream/Facial Moisturizer

With an amazing scent and silky-soft texture, the key ingredient within this transformation kit is the facial shea butter. As the initial products applied are extremely lightweight, this deeply moisturizing cream is the essential item needed for a complete Buttah transformation. I not only used the shea butter on my face but also my arms and neck for a glowy finish. As the CocoShea Revitalizing Cream has an immensely thick texture, I suggest using portions of this product based on your desired glow.
