I love these body butters. They are great for super dry skin. I use mine after shaving, or after a day in the sun. They all smell great!
Body shops body butter reallly help my super dry skin. i have severe itching and dryness even with moisturizing lotions such as olay body quench and nivea body lotions. i have tried alot of other lotions aswell but really nothing worked for me. the only thing that helps my severely dry skin is body shops body butter. i use the pink vitamin e one. doesn't have much of a scent though, i wish it did. however, it really relieves my serious dryness so I am not complaining. i m gona try their other body butters once this one runs out.
I like the idea of these, and love some of their fruit flavors (mango, satsuma) but these leave me with a bit of a greasy after-feel. I appreciate body shop's commitment to fair trade, but its unlikely I'd repurchase this myself. I wouldn't mind, however, receiving this as a gift!
I bought a mango body butter last year and after only using it once the super strong fragrance forced me to throw it out. Today I ventured into a Body Shop and saw that they had a huge range of different butters so bought the 50ml small tubs of 2 of the least fragranced ones, Shea and coconut. Tonight I used the shea for the first time. It smelled stronger than the tester in the store but the fragrance is nice so doesn't bother me yet. It goes on smoothly and you have to rub it in fact because within seconds it starts dissapearing into your skin. The consistency after a few minutes actually feels like shea butter on the skin but more moisturizing. I'm saying this because pure 100% shea dries out my facial skin badly.
3 HOUR UPDATE:. It's a really nice smell but if I have this butter on my face and my eyes are starting to water then the scent is too strong. I decided to test out the coconut oil butter and within seconds of applying I felt a vast difference in my face. This one is more moisturizing. It has a greasier feel and my skin seems to like it more than the shea. SO far the smell is weaker so the scent isn't affecting me. We'll see after I sleep in it overnight though.
6 HOUR UPDATE: Showered and put the coconut butter all over my body and it struck me that it smells exactly like a coconut black hair grease I used to use to base my relaxer. It was a rush to slather it on as no sooner does it hit your skin than it starts to get too thick to spread so your pulling your skin to get it all over. On my face it's super thick. SO thick that if feels like I used Vaseline petroleum jelly but it took away my dry skin. I also noticed that after applying it a thin greasy film was left on my palms. I like the smell of this one better but wish they added less of it. It really doesn't need to smell this strong, or at least create an unscented version. The scents so far are the only drawback.
I have four of these: Strawberry, Brazil Nut, Lemon and Grapefruit. I love the scents of these and it's hard to choose which one I use. The strawberry one is absolutely delicious, I want to eat my skin when I'm wearing it. These are really moisturizing and do a good job of softening up your skin quickly. I bought the lemon and grapefruit scents most recently to go with a citrus-y perfume I bought and they both compliment it well and make it last longer. I would highly recommend these and I will continue to buy them, there are still lots of scents that I want to try out.
Love these body butters. I tend to only buy them when they are on sale (e.g. $10) because they are very expensive at full price ($20). However, no cheap drugstore lotion compares in my opinion. They are amazing and thick and absorb fairly quickly. The condition of my dry skin vastly improves when I use them. They are also very long lasting, as are the moisturizing effects. Brazil Nut is my absolute favorite - can't get enough of that scent.
I've probably tried 10+ different scents and the only one that I could not wear was Almond. No matter how little I applied it was too strong, and gave me a "perfume headache." I tried it on 3 separate occasions and each time got a headache. Unfortunately had to pitch it. So be careful when buying new scents online! If I had smelled Almond in the store I would have known immediately that I couldn't handle it.
I just ordered a whole bunch of body butters of various scents during their holiday sale, and got some for $8! These body butters make getting out of the shower more fun. I finally joined their Love Your Body club 10 months ago and I've made my $10 fee back and more. I definitely recommend them!! If there is no sale and you want to try some without making a $20 commitment, they have samplers in store and most clerks will also make you a sample in a cute little jar to take home and try as well.
I love the papaya and mango body butter! I only use it at night because due to the humid weather here, it'll get sticky if I were to sweat. It moisturizes well and keeps my skin soft. And I love their scents! Price wise, there are always promotions going on in The Body Shop, so it's quite worth it! & the good thing is, it helps moisturize my dry feet too! I don't have dry feet problem anymore. continued >>
I have been buying body butters by The Body Shop for 15 years. (I'm 32 and was lucky enough to find the brand in high school.) It is a wonderful brand, and the body butter is probably the best or one of the best of the brand. They smell wonderful (very natural), and they are very moisturizing. The price has gone up over the years, but I recently saw them priced at $10 each (half price). They always do this for Christmas scents, but they were doing it for the other scents as well. Just a wonderful product. Get the body shop reward card-free when you get it during your birthday month. Wonderful products all around.
I have used the body shop body butter for over a year and I'm totally hooked. I've tried mango, olive, strawberry and Japanese cherry blossom, so on average I finished one 1 large product for 4-5 months, not too bad for pricing point of view, considering I wear them everyday, almost without fail, you just need a little to spread over your skin anyway.
What can i say about the body shop body butter...they smell divine and lasting all days, the textures are ranging depending the type of skin the types are for, thicker for dry skin and less thick for normal skin, it's just perfect - but whatever the textures are, I find them easily absorb into the skin and does make my skin feels and looks better, my skin look flawless with this!
overall, definitely will re-purchase again..
I love these butters! I have owned most of the scents, and they are all fabulous in my opinion! Very moisturizing, and the scent lingers. My skin has improved since using these daily. Love the scent selection, the packaging, and will continue to repurchase.
