Glow for a Cause Body Butter in Wish ($16.00 for 2.5 oz. from Glow for a Cause): Wish is a rich, thick and ultra-creamy body butter that is very moisturizing. It is, likewise, quite concentrated, and therefore a little goes a long way. I apply it to warm damp skin right after the shower, and it leaves my skin soft, supple and very moisturized. While the notes are light florals, white tea, Bergamot and light musks, I read it as a delectable musky coconut. I am smitten with this one in particular because it sits close to the skin and has a beautiful subtle scent as it dries down.
