Battle of the Whipped Lotions – Haus of Gloi vs Villainess vs Solstice Scents vs Epically Epic

I’ve recently discovered the body (&more) side of IMAM. There are SOO many whipped lotions out there and I wanted to try them all. I’ve included pictures for each under “texture”!

  • Haus of Gloi’s Pumpkin Butter (Aether, Unscented)

Texture: Most liquidy (Note: It’s been brought to my attention that there was a huge batch variation, and it’s normally very thick)

Absorption: Takes awhile, it’s pretty oily and I end up getting oil on my desk/whatever surface I’m touching. Highly moisturizing, if I put it on before bed, my legs will still be soft in the AM.

Scent: I bought the unscented version so that I could scent it myself, it’s 1 ml to every 2 oz of PB. Overtime the oil does separate out from the PB, but is easily fixed by stirring it in. My Lily Cakes scented one sticks around and is quite strong.

Price: $10 for 6 oz, $1.67 p/ oz

Rating: 3.5/5, too oily

  • Villainess’ Whipped! (Mother of All Souls, Arcana’s Scent)

Texture: Most light, genuinely feels like whipped cream

Absorption: Super quick absorption, and spreads easily. This is perfect for summertime or places where you don’t need heavy, intense moisture.

Scent: If you’re a fan of Arcana, I got the collaboration (as I LOVE Arcana’s Mother of All Souls). It sticks around but a bit, but is fairly light and unoffensive. Super office safe.

Price: $11.50 for 6 oz, $1.92 p/ oz

Rating: 5/5, good for summer/light moisture

  • Solstice Scents Ganache (Violet Mallow Scent)

Texture: Thick, heavy cream

Absorption: For how thick it is, it absorbs quite well. It takes some rubbing in, but leaves my skin soft. Very moisturizing, and will last overnight.

Scent: Violet Mallow is one of my holy grail scents, but in this ganache form it has this almost chocolaty scent to it. Luckily, it goes away as it’s absorbed. The scent is pretty light and not intrusive.

Price: $9.00 for 4 oz, $2.25 p/ oz (most expensive)

Rating: 4/5, great moisture but has a weird scent and more expensive (I also don’t think they offer this anymore :/)

  • Epically Epic Whipped Body Butter (Marshmallow)

Texture: Frosting. It looks like I opened the Pillsbury Creamy Supreme vanilla frosting.

Absorption: It absorbs pretty easily, but is slightly oily. Very moisturizing and will last overnight. This stuff is soo dense, you only need a little.

Scent: I got this in marshmallow, it smells EXACTLY like butter creme vanilla frosting from a jar. Super, duper, diabetic sweet. I’ll use this to layer with any of my gourmand scents.

Price: $10 for 6 oz, $1.67 p/ oz

Rating: 4.5/5, heavy moisture with a variety of scents,

Tl;dr: My favorite is Villainess’ Whipped!. It’s light, and well scented (but doesn’t linger). The texture is like satin and absorbs easily. A good second is Epically Epic’s Whipped Body Butter for heavy moisture and value.
