Mio’s Future Proof Firming Active Body Butter is one of my favorites when I need a heavy-duty shot of moisture. The thick and creamy formula works overtime for up to 24 hours to banish my dry patches and cover my whole body with a seemingly new smoother, glowing skin. There’s a fine line between a saturated body butter which achieves ultimate richness and one with a pastelike consistency, and Future Proof maximizes its lushness without sacrificing smooth and simple application. Organic Argan Kernel Oil is one of Future Proof’s many unique ingredients which is packed with Omegas and proteins to improve inner strength and elasticity while moisturizing and feeding skin.
As soon as I jump out of the shower, I seal in moisture with the body butter and notice an instant change to soft, smooth skin. It’s a relaxing ritual in which I take in the light fragrance and massage the butter into my skin which absorbs without greasiness. This uber-rich moisturizer doesn’t need to be reapplied until the next day, except if I want to treat my hands to an overnight surge of softening and rehydration. It not only quenches my skin’s thirst for instant moisture, but preserves it for the future (hence the name!), delivering free-radical fighting antioxidants and vitamins to fight aging factors. Their No Nasties policy ensures that there are never parabens, synthetic fragrances, pthlalates, glycols, mixed in. Instead, many natural ingredients are used such as organic almond and olive fruit oils to soothe and protect, and reishi mushroom extract which redensifies skin to obtain a brighter tone and texture and reduces inflammation. For the same reasons we eat blueberries and pomegranates, the extracts are superfoods for the skin and sources of antioxidants. Pomegranate seed oil also prevents sun damage and increases collagen production. Future Proof comes in an good-sized tub which will last all season, and it so concentrated that you won’t need handfuls just to cover your whole body.
