this is a good body butter. I am a huge fan of TBS body butters because of their great moisturization and because the company invests in empowering women in third world countried. This BB does no really smell like mango, more like a generic scent. But it does moisturize very well. I have purchased several tubs of this product for the winter time because I find it sometimes moisturizes better than the brazil nut BB. I sometimes even put some satsuma fragrance oil into this scent of BB to boost the fragrance properties of it.
LIke most Body Shop butters mango has a very strong smell that can be an issue for those who aren't a fan of it. When I apply it to my whole body I skip perfume as it tends to clash. I'm not saying it's a bad smell, it's just strong. However, it's VERY moisturizing and I used it religiously during my second pregnancy and didn't get any stretch marks. Since this is for dry skin, a little goes a long way and one tub will last quite a while, so I feel the price is more than justified. I reccomend this for pregnant mothers. Shea is also supposed to be great but I don't like the smell so much and this worked just as well for me.
This is the first TBS boby butter I ever tried and it has become a staple in my skincare regimine. I also love the coconut butter, brazil nut butter and shea butter versions. The scent is great but can be an issue if your perfume is not complimentary. I highly recommend these butters for dry skin and a little goes a really long way so the price is ok but I still try to wait for their big sales to stock up. These run circles around the BBW butters.
I got a sample of this with a purchase a while ago and just finally got around to using it. The smell is nice, I didn't find it too overpowering and my fiance liked it as well. It took forever to absorb into my skin though! I've never had that with any other Body Butters and I've got quite a few. I'm not sure if I will purchase this, if I do it'll be the small size and I'll buy it in the spring, because it's a very summery scent.
The body shop's body butters are probably my favorite moisturizer and the mango flavor is one of my favorites too!
I got this as a gift. The body butter is very moisturizing and slightly on the greasy side - which I don't mind. I am not sure if I like the smell. My DH said it smelled nice, but there is something odd - I can't put my finger on it. Not sure if I will purchase mango when my gift runs out...
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.
