It's comparatively a nice body butter. I've tried VS's and their smell is too strong for my sensitive nose. I've tried B & B and I break out on their formula.
the body shop always had best of line body products. this one in particular is my 2nd favorite smell next to olive. The texture is kind of smooth and oily, it's solid but melts with palm temperature. Provides nice moisturizing quality that lasts all day even in dry winter. It made my skin shiny glossy which is nice but I don't like the oily feeling because when I'm doing pilates, some exercises requires skin roughness to hold up. So using this product before pilates is a bad idea.
I give it 4 because the price is not cheap, especially one full size bottle only last me around 10 times.
means I can use it up in one week. so I decide to jump to cheaper ones like nivea. continued >>
Alike many other body butters that I love (Papaya, Coconut, Cocoa, and Shea), this one is also very moisturizing and smells totally gourmand. I love the nutty chocoalatey smell. I do find this to be on the greasy side due to which I use it only during winter months. Will continue to purchase!
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.
