This is hands down my favourite body butter. I am in love with the clean scent as well, not too overwhelming but pretty and refreshing !! It's crazy to feel my skin at the end of the day, summer or winter, after running around from classes to work etc etc, and notice how soft and moisturized it feels. I put it on immediately after coming out of the shower every single day, it literally takes just an extra minute or two for wonderful skin.. every day :)
This product does moisturize but I find it to be a little greasy. The scent is great, the shea body butter is my favorite of the TBS butters.
The scent is amazing, its light and the cream moisturizes like nothing else.
Love love love this scent! This one and the Brazil Nut butter are my favs! They are both very thick rich creams, better for cooler/winter months. Excellent on feet and elbows. Love this scent!!
I love this stuff. Extremely moisturizing and a fresh, clean scent. It's great for dry elbows and knees. I even put a little on my hair's dry ends, it makes them feel a little better. Awesome product, as usual. I love body butters.
Great for winter dry skin but can be a bit too rich for other seasons. It is quite solid in the tub but melts with the heat from your hands. Moisturizes my extremely dry skin very well. One tub also lasts ages so it works out cheap. I don't love the tub it comes in but any other packaging would have been difficult because it's so solid. I scrape a bit out into a smaller container and use it for my chronically dry hands all year round. Highly recommended!
smells heavenly. very moisturizing. smells heavenly. (oh i mentioned it before haha)
I love The Body Shop's body butters...just not this scent (Shea).
It smelled good in the store, but turned when I got home. Perhaps it is just not right for my chemistry?
I do prefer the Brazil Nut, as it has a light scent (almost like sugar or white chocolate) that will not clash with perfume.
(I do use the shea shower cream, it smells very good and leaves my winter skin soft)
I'm on my fourth tub of Shea Body Butter. I adore the fragrance as well as the moisturizing power. But the BEST thing about this body butter is that I can use it on my face, even though I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin. In the winter when my cheeks get dry, I can pat this into my skin at night and when I wake up my cheeks are soft and healed. I've tried several other body butters, but this is my favorite. The fruity ones all turn weird on me, with a sour, bitter sort of fragrance, even though they start off sweet smelling. The hemp isn't as moisturizing and I don't like the fragrance - thought I ADORE the hemp hand cream.The grapeseed body butter is good, but doesn't smell as nice as the shea. The almond body butter smells really good, and comes in a close second to the Shea. I'll be getting another tub (or two or...) at the next biannual sale.
Lovely thick cream 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 Shea version is intended for very dry skin; it fulfills this purpose admirably. I have relatives with much drier skin than me who use it too, indeed more frequently. It is one of the two least scented creams, to my nose; Olive is the other, but not as richly moisturizing. The Cocoa claims to be as suited for very dry skin, but I didn't find it as moisturizing, and it smells much stronger. Contains mainly shea and cocoa butters, plus cyclomethicone (the "less heavy" silicone).
