The Solid Bar Company Review: Travel Size Body Butter

Concentrated body butter lasts forever but is 3-1-1 friendly.

The Solid Bar Company Review

Price and Where to Buy the Solid Bar Company: The 2 oz. travel size is available for $15.95 on The Solid Bar Company’s website.

Pros:

  • Super concentrated and will last much longer than standard lotions
  • Comes in a 2 oz. size, lightweight, and rust-proof tin that’s perfect for travel
  • Made from hand-whipped coconut oil, Jojoba, sweet almond oil, cocoa and shea butter that’s great for your skin
  • Uses natural oils for long-lasting fragrance
  • 100 percent biodegradable

Cons:

  • Expensive, but it will last awhile, so you’ll get a lot of use out of a small tin

How the Solid Bar Company Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Travel (especially flying) dries out the skin. Body butter is a great way to re-hydrate.
  • Value: 5/10. $15.95 is a high price tag for 2 oz.
  • Portability: 10/10. The tin is small, lightweight, rust-proof, and spill-proof, plus meets the 3-1-1 rule.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The long-lasting natural fragrance smells delicious (especially the vanilla) and you’ll look great with moisturized skin.

Final Verdict: If you don’t mind spending a bit for high-quality skin care, the body butter from the Solid Bar Company is great for travel.
