I have used and LOVED Merle Norman products in the past. The story of how the hugely successful company which is Merle Norman tickles me. Merle Nethercutt Norman literally coined the phrase “Try before you buy” when she shared her comedic creations to friends and family, a door to door saleswoman for much sought after skincare. She believed if she could “get in their face” they would become her loyal customers. Her vision worked, as Merle Norman is now an over 80 year old company which continues to offer business opportunities for women across the country.
Merle Norman Pink Grapefruit Body Butter is a wonderful addition to the extensive line of body care Merle Norman has to offer. The first Merle Norman product I have ever had the good fortune to try was the Mirocol Revitalizing Lotion, which is actually one of the best cleansing, exfoliating and tightening masks I have ever used (and I must admit, I’m kind of a mask junkie). I knew right away that the Pink Grapefruit Body Butter was going to be just as great.
I love the scent of Pink Grapefruit, so energizing and fresh. The fragrance in this butter is amazing. I loved the citrusy notes. The fragrance is subtle enough that this amazingly thick cream can be worn under any body spray or perfume, while offering uplifting qualities while applying. I keep this pretty white tube in my gym bag, this butter takes care of dry weather leg ashiness quickly, without having to rub and rub. Merle Norman, you are my hero!
