I was first introduced to Elle Vie products in July 2018 at the networking event Cocktails with Claire in Dallas, Texas (Clare Sulmers/Fashion Bomb Daily). Lavida was one of the vendors at the event and I have been ordering her fabulous body butter ever since.  

Lavida Samuel Creator of Elle Vie Body Products

Elle Vie’s butters, scrubs and body oils are strictly made with quality ingredients. Like any woman who knows her worth, I expect nothing but the best for myself. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance to me that I excel even beyond my engineering skills when making skin products for you. I create from a place of expected excellence by pouring my very essence, my soul, in each of these jars and containers. My mission is for even the most fragile of skin types to absorb the Elle Vie line with soothing results. My vision is to eradicate global ashiness! These products are specifically designed with you and your daily ritual in mind: for you to practice being good to yourself, daily. Trust Elle Vie to care for you like your homegirl, who won’t let you step out of the house ashy!

There are six staple butter scents, two for men, and one unscented option. The Wanderlust Collection features a new scented shea body butter each month inspired by Lavida’s favorite travel destinations throughout the world.  My personal favorites are “Date Night” and the February Butter of the Month “Durban”.

After speaking with the fabulous founder and CEO I discovered she has a few personal favorites!

I like them all (that’s what I’m supposed to say) but honestly I love King which is my male butter. I prefer unisex/masculine scents – of the feminine scents Goal Getter is my current fave, probably because it’s new and Santorini is my favorite. It was a butter of the month.

I will continue to support Lavida she is beautiful, professional, and has a sweet spirit! She even contacted me by phone once to ensure my order was correct before shipping it! Follow her on Instagram @elleviebody

    Congratulations on you new journey, your courageous spirit is moving more women to think independently. What hair products do you showcase/ recommend for women looking for products for natural hair, that gives moisture and curls, without the tangles
