I really like the body shop butters, and this one is exceptionally creamy and moisturizing of all that I've tried so far. However, I've found that in warmer (not even humid, but just warm) weather the hemp oil feels like it sits on the skin long after the butter has been rubbed in. Perhaps the oil is what is making my skin feel so soft though, so I'm not complaining.
This body butter does moisturize really well, but the smell is just awful- like nature (trees, fresh cut grass, and leaves). I do wear it to work daily because my skin is super dry in the winter and this helps keep it moisturized. I would not repurchase this due to the scent. I hope this product is re released with an improved scent.
This is a great moisturizer - if you can tolerate the scent! It definitely has that "hippie" smell - like hemp and patchouli and incense all wrapped in dreadlocks and macrame. I prefer clean or fruity/floral scents, so if you are the same, steer clear of this. I was using it on my feet with socks overnight until I noticed the smell in my bedsheets and it took 2 washings to remove it completely. If you like that kind of smell, you will love this. If you prefer clean and/or lightly scented products, avoid it.
This product was just not for me. The smell was very very annoying in my opinion, because it got all over my clothes and it was just too strong for me, and I didn't really like it in the first place. I guess it has good moisturizing properties but it took way too long to sink into my skin. My skin felt greasy and I just thought this was too heavy
Possibly the best lotion I have ever used. I put this on all over my body the first night that I got it, and the next day my skin was silky smooth, where as the night before my skin was so dry and flaky.
I'm not sure if I like the smell or not, but it's not a horrible smell, it's just super earthy, after awhile it just starts to smell like lotion. I also have the body wash and the two together work wonderfully.
Love this! I have used TBS body butters for awhile, but usually only used them on my hands/arms to stretch it further. I got this product in an after Xmas gift set on sale, and my HG hemp hand cream was included, so I decided to use this body butter on...duh, my body! It is fabulous! The smell is different, but I really like it, and it's quite subtle. I can smell it for most of the day, but only as an occasional whiff and it's very pleasant. I have fairly dry skin, and I can get away with using this every other day after getting out of the shower. Highly recommended!
This product is a lifesaver. I use it all the time, it's perfect for every season in New England because it helps with dry skin during winter months and also if used in large amounts after aloe helps to releve and moisturize sunburn. I received this product a year ago for Christmas and still have almost half the tub left, a little goes a long way! I would recommend this to anyone.
I absolutely LOVE this body butter. I use it for my hands and feet and I love how healthy and soft they are.
I've been using this butter for over a year now and wouldn't be without it in the house, I'm addicted to it!
This would be a PERFECT product if it smelled differently. It works so well- my legs are always so dry in the winter- they get tiny little fissures so it looks like a dry riverbed on my shins. I've been using this for two months, and no more dryness. I put it on immediately after my evening shower, and my legs/feet have never looked better.
I do try to put on a different body butter on top of this if I use it in the morning, otherwise I smell "herb-y" all day.
the price is a little steep at $18 a pop, but The body Shop usually has some crazy sale going on, so I just wait for their 3 for $30 or 50%off to purchase this along with my basics.
So I was at TBS about two weeks ago, and being the holiday season, I knew there would be some great sales at the store.
I was in luck! I got a 50% off anything in the store (excluding gift sets).
I went CRAZY and bought about 6 body butters, some shower gels, scrubbing gloves, scented oil for the home, AND because I earned my 8th point, I was entitled to a free $25 gift.
I chose the Hemp holiday gift set: a regular sized Hemp Body Butter, a regular sized Hemp hand cream, small sized foot cream, and the Hemp lip balm.
I kind of don't like the smell, but let me tell you. It is extremely moisturizing! My mom always suffers from cracked finger tips during the winter (so painful). They bleed and drive her crazy. She tries all kinds of creams, but nothing helps. I gave her some of the body butter to try and the next day, there was such a noticeable improvement. She was so happy. I gave her the hand cream, and she applies it whenever she washes her hands, and especially at night. A week later, no more cracked finger tips!
AMAZING. GET ONE IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN!
