I love this body butter from The Body Shop! It's so creamy and moisturizing. The texture is fantastic. A little goes a long way so when that is considered the price is not that bad. I use this on a daily basis in the fall and winter when my dry skin is in desperate need of a good body butter/body lotion.
The scent is lovely. Fruity and fresh! Love it. It's not overpowering at all in my opinion.
I'd definitely repurchase it if I had a The Body Shop near me. I bought this while on vacation in Germany. I will be sad once I finish it. continued >>
I think this has been mentioned a lot already, but I find this mango scent just far, far too overpowering for me. I did apply it all over my body for a while, but after I realised the nausea I was feeling was from the scent, I tried just on my hands for a while. Still, nausea was imminent. If you are sensitive to scents in the least (and I am normally not...) I would really, really recommend you stay AWAY from this. Because it might smell fantastic in the store, but taking it home is another matter entirely
This smells sensational. Best smelling cream/lotion ever. And a little bit of this product goes a long way.
I love the sweet mango scent of this, it reminds me of childhood, somehow and of summer.
I use this one as a hand creme, mainly because of the scent being rather strong if applied all over the body. Though, occasionally, when I feel like smelling of mango, I apply it all over. As a hand creme it is wonderful. Just a small amount and your hands are left well moisturised and soft. As a body butter, you have to be careful and apply just a small amount or it will never, ever sink into your skin.
Only thing I have against it is that it contains a lot of things I don't know what it is. I prefer products that are as natural as possible.
I love the price/quality balance of this one. It's very rich and fine smelling butter with another combo of good moisturizing ingredients in it.
I especially love to use it with Fairy Dust perfume, because I find scents quite similar and it tones down that synthetic note that sometimes appear in fragrance. It's not overpowering, but mango scent lasts, is quite intense and very creamy.
If you are looking for a thick moisturizing for your skin that smells good, you will find that The Body Shop body butters might be a good option. I absolutely love mangos, and i find the smell of this body butter were settle and nice. I love mixing this body butter with the coconut one. A very tropical scent. If you like mangoes, definetely check this one out.
A friend bought me this as a gift. Not a good one.
The mango smell is WAYYYYYYYYY too over powering for me. It is very sweet and makes me feel a little bit sick!
It absorbs well but can be a little sticky. It is quite hard in the tub so has to be rubbed between hands before applied on legs etc.
I can't wait to get to the bottom of the tub-just so I don't feel ungrateful!
This is more suitable for normal skin. Baught because I do have very dry skin and it didn't work for me. But as the smell goes it smells really nice. The sweetness can be overbearing in the long-run. Smells more like mango candy, than the actual fruit.
I really like this body butter for my dry skin! I think it's less suitable for people with normal skin, but as it says on the container, it's meant for (very?) dry skin. I didn't love the mango smell at first, because I was used to the more fresh smelling Raspberry and Satsuma body butters, but after a few uses the smell grew on me and I'm really loving it now!
I am usually a huge fan of Body Shop body butters. I love how moisturizing they are and how great they smell (the cocoa butter... yum!). The mango version of this product seemed different compared to the other body butters I have tried from the Body Shop. It was very thick and it took forever for my skin to absorb it. A gross film was left on top of my skin after using this, even if I put it on right after I jumped out of the shower. I would have to use a towel and wipe down my skin after using this and waiting ten minutes or so, as all of the product wouldn't absorb and I would be left feeling sticky. It's too bad, as both my fiance and I loved the mango scent. Maybe the Body Shop will change the formula, as they have recently done with the coconut version, and these issues could be resolved...
