I found the soap in a shop in my neighborhood. I loved it so much I bought the lotion. The lotion is amazing! Smells incredible, absorbs quickly, no sticky feeling. I'm hooked!

The Sea La Vie scent is one of my absolute favorites. Every time I open a jar of the body butter, I give a little happy sigh. As for the feel of the body butter - it's nice and smooth. You can't go wrong with this body butter!

I originally found this body butter at a local boutique. Once I ran out I knew I had to buy more. I wanted to try a new scent and saw that this one had some of the best reviews. The scent is nice and light with a mix of floral and coastal notes. My favorite thing about this product is the immediate hydration that you feel when applying it. I use it every day.

I have been ordering this body butter since I first sampled it in the Market while visiting Charleston. It is fresh, creamy but not greasy. The scent is subtle and lasts. It reminds me of a spring day!

In our family, we each have our special Old Whaling Company scent. After trying them all, I landed on Sea La Vie! It is perfect for me. I have two daughters -- one is Lavender and the other is Coconut Milk. My husband and son both like Bamboo & Teak. That's the best part of Old Whaling Company -- there is something for everyone.
When I send as a gift, I always send the 5 sampler body butters so my friends and family can figure out what is right for them.

The reviews are true- this scent rules. It's more feminine than the lavender or seaweed and sea salt (two of my other staples), but it's such a nice change! I even bought the roll on perfume because I enjoyed the scent so much.

Lovely scent and not greasy at all.

I walked into the store because I needed body lotion. I’m not picky and rarely get impressed by products to the point of leaving a review but this stuff is seriously amazing! It smells heavenly and has very nice texture. It made me excited to take a shower every day and it feels like therapy for my skin and soul :) This purchase was accidental but you got a long-term customer!

I like the fresh floral and citrus combo of this body butter. I cannot say how pleased I am with all of these scents. I am working my way thru all of them, and this is definitely one of my faves. Since purchasing Old Whaling body butters, I have not bought any other lotions, and I have to admit I consider myself somewhat of a lotion addict. These are all awesome!

It all started with trying to figure out what to get my Mom for Mother's Day. I wanted something a little different and I wanted to support a small business. Ordered a gift set for my Mom and a sample of the Sea La Vie body butter to start. I loved the smell so much that I bought the bigger version. It makes my skin smell so good and it is so soft. Unbelievable! I bought the salt scrub and the soap too but haven't used them yet. I can only imagine though. Reviews to follow...let the obsession with OWC continue! :)

I have literally never experiences anything better. I used to use Josie Marin argan oil body butter that is 5x more expensive, but this is literally a million times better than that for a fraction of the price. Such a nice, clean, crisp scent & leaves my skin so soft. Thank you for making such a great product!!!

What a wonderful experience to order from Old Whaling Co. of Charleston, SC and get a question by email, the next morning, to clear up an error I made in ordering and then a handwritten thank-you note in my order, with free shipping and delivered in 3 days! Oh, and also let me not forget to mention the $8 discount on my order of $48! Thank you Emma + OWC Family❤️
I bought my first Sea La Vie last November while visiting Charleston at the West Ashley Old Whaling Co. store. Such a great product! While visiting Edisto, bought another. This has been the best for moisturizing my skin! It’s so smooth and rich and smells so fresh and light!

The Sea La Vie body butter is perfect if you are looking for a refreshing scent! Although this scent is very light, whenever I feel like I need that extra energy boost I use the Sea La Vie body butter. I recommend any of the scents as everyone has their own preferences. I know I'll be continuing to collect scents throughout the holiday season and will also be using all of Old Whaling Co.'s products for gifts for the holidays!

I love the product, but the 8 oz. jar I just ordered does not seem to be full. Perhaps the 8 oz. are there, but the jar is slightly larger to be certain there is no seepage?

I found your products in a little shop in Marblehead, MA. I picked up a bar of soap and the scent was wonderful. Then I saw the body butter. I bought them immediately! Unfortunately, I forgot to put the body butter in my suitcase so it was in my carry on. They confiscated it at security. ☹️ I loved it so much that I ordered it online as soon as I got home. Love it! Also appreciated the sweet note that came in the box. Thanks!

I have tried several of Old Whaling Company's Body Butter products, and continue to be absolutely in love with the soothing, non-greasy texture of their body butters. While the Sea La Vie scent has turned out not to be my favorite scent (has a bit of a melon/cucumber scent which I'm not a big fan of), I can't rave enough about how soothing and light and moisturizing the body butter is. I highly recommend trying a few of the body butters until you find your favorite fragrance, because the overall product is a win!

Light smell but amazing!

I bought this body butter in Sea La Vie while visiting Charleston and immediately fell in love with it. Although it is very creamy and hydrating, it goes on smoothly and rubs in very easily. It doesn’t feel sticky or oily at all. It has quickly become my favorite lotion. And the scent is light and refreshing.

I just love this body butter. It smells so good and clean and makes my skin so soft, but not oily!
