This review isn't just for the Brazil Nut butter, which I do insanely love, but for a majority of them in general. These are the only butters I use to moisturize my dry skin in the winter. I haven't seen one flake since I started using these. I always apply them right after my shower and they leave my skin soft and supple all day. My SO always says he loves how soft my skin is...well now my secret is out! They do have a slight smell, but it eventually fades after a few hours. Good thing the scents are pretty yummy. I love the Coconut, Papaya, and Strawberry for smell. If you want one that won't interfer with your perfume right away, I'd get Grapeseed, Almond, or Olive. I'd recommend these to anyone. They are a little pricey, $20 for a full size, but they last me for 2 to 2 and a half months with almost everyday use...and how my skin looks and feels, they are so worth it.
This product feels and smells lovely, and I love that it has a lot of Community Trade ingredients. But honestly, I got sick of it being absorbed so fast. You have to use a LOT to cover your body and moisturizing shouldn't be this much work... A little greasier wouldn't have hurt! Going to try one of their spray on body milks or a heavier lotion from them.
I love the body butters in general but Brazil Nut probably is my favorite scent. First of all, I love the consistency of the body butters.... it's very thick but soft. Brazil Nut smells very nutty and warm, almost as if you were to stick your head in a can of mixed nuts and inhale deeply. For me, though, I enjoy how the scent is NOT overpowering but is still pretty lingering. I usually end up with greasy hands after I apply any moisturizer but the body butter glides on and my skin soaks it up quickly; no greasiness.... not even on my hands afterwards! :)
i adore this and cant stop smelling my hands when im wearing it. i have this one and the coconut one. theyr both really good but this is better i think. it reminds me a little bit of how a snickers bar smells. very moisturising. i often use it to protect my hands in cold weather. id definitely buy it again.
I put the body butter on at night and my hands felt WAY better in the morning. It works like a charm and it smells really good.
I love The Body Shop body butters, I think I am addicted!!! Right now i have 8 of them in different scents though my favorite is the brazil nut, i always need atleast two at all times. The only negative thing is the price. When I first started using this it was around $13 now its $20 are they going to keep raising the price??? Unfortunately if they do, i will still keep purchasing them because i have been trying different less expensive body butters for years now, and nothing compares to the body shop body butters!!!
I am really disappointed with this product. It's effect is gorgeous smooth skin, but at what cost? The ingredients label left me saddened, because there was a whole heap of chemicals I couldn't pronounce. Surely the Body Shop ought to produce slightly more natural products, like it used too??
I guess I'm in the minority on this one... although it is a great moisturizer the smell is horrible. Luckily it fades away after while and doesn't last all day. I don't know why but to me this smells like a combination of burnt toast and liquor. I got it during the BOGOF sale so I'm really glad I didn't pay full price. Definitely will not repurchase in this scent.
In a word: yummy! It's a nice, thick cream, has a beautiful scent and moisturises really well. It makes your body kind of shiny, but in a good way. The scent stays with you all day and it just feels really nice, not greasy or oily.
The Body Shop Body Butters are lovely thick creams for drier skin, luscious texture, and a very good deal compared to market peers. I've used the Body Butters in Brazil Nut, Cocoa, Coconut, Olive, and Shea. All are excellent; they are slightly scented, but not enough to produce allergic reactions. Other versions are available, but are more heavily scented or include some ingredients my skin isn't overly happy with, so I've not used them. The Butters also work well as winter hand- and foot-creams. How to choose amongst them?
The Brazil Nut version is intended for dry skin; I found it nearly as moisturizing as the Shea, that's meant for very dry skin. The Brazil has a lovely nutty scent; whereas the Shea and Olive are the least fragrant of this range. I've taken a lippie off (giving the other two 5), as the smell doesn't always "work." Contains mainly brazil nut oil, shea and cocoa butters, and cyclomethicone (the "less heavy" silicone).
