I do like this product. It smells amazing and does a great job moisturising dry skin. Even thought the texture is quite thick my skin is able to absorb it quickly leaving it smooth and hydrated.
I've been using it for years until I found Vaseline's Cocoa Butter came out it it's almost exactly the same but a lot cheaper.
I'm really into TBS body butters, they're very moisturizing and feel great on my skin. My favourite scents are those that are more on the neural side like almond, shea and nut.
Sometimes during the summer it can feel a bit heavier but I doesn't feel "greasy" to me.
I know the retail price can be quite expensive, but you can get great deals during the sales. Also, I believe smaller versions (of 50 ml) are available for purchase.
And the last thing is regarding a previous rewiew, where it claims that TBS now tests on animales because it's owned by L'oreal. This is false and you can check it for yourself, they're still against animal testing and are in favour of animal rights, along with being more respectful to our planet and local societies.
An amazing product! It moisturizes my skin so well and it doesn't give me the greasy feeling that Palmer's cocoa butter has. I usually use it after I shave my legs, and before I had those little brown spots but not with this. ^^ Also, the scent so addicting because it's sweet without being overpowering, (my mom hates it when I use scented lotions, but she doesn't complain when I use this) even my boyfriend likes it. ;) The only downside about this product is the price, but I'll keep repurchasing because it helps my skin so much. Try it out ladies, you won't regret. :D
I love this subtle, sweet scent. It is perfect if you don't want to be wearing a bold fragrance or don't want it to interfere with perfume. I'm not really familiar with Brazil Nuts, so I can't say if it smells accurate or not, but it is a very natural sweet smell.
This smells so good! It's super moisturizing but a little sticky if you use it on the entire body so I just use it on my hands, elbows, feet and legs after shaving. I don't need that much moisture other places anyway so I'm a big fan of these and always have one in my bathroom closet. A great allround cream for dry patches!
Very disappointed with this product.
It sits on your skin like grease and does not sink in. No moisturising effect at all and I very patiently used it for a couple of weeks.
Based on the poor performance of the product I find it expensive. It is a complete waste of money.
Nice smell but the smell is just a marketing gimmick.
Plus the Body Shop now test on animals through L'oreal which owns the Body Shop.
- delicious nutty/salty type smell
- fantastic moisturising and absorbs very well into the skin (no residue)
- easily the best of the Body Shop's Body Butters
- harder consistency, needs to be worked in a bit
Overall, I think this does exactly what you would expect a body butter to do and am very pleased with this product. It moisturises winter skin very well and even the price isn't a deterrent, because it lasted me a fair bit longer than the Body Shop's other body butters. Definitely would repurchase.
This is certainly one of my favourite TBS body butters! The smell is nice and light, not too heavily fragranced, good for people with a sensitive nose that don't fancy heavily smelling things. Also I love the think creamy consistency of the butter. It goes nice and smoothly on skin. I sometimes combine this with body oil or just only itself after shower as a treat for my skin! My skin adores it and I adore it! Will certainly continue repurchasing this product! It is fantastic!
one of the creamiest thickest body creams i have ever used!...this smells wonderfullll ..like caramel..helped me with my dry skin during winters...a little is enuf for the whole body...the cream is too thick and maybe not suitable for summers..the cream comes in a tub and i apply it immediately after shower or at night.. .overall i give it 5 stars for being true to its claims
I have been using Body Shop Body Butters on and off since I was a teenager. My favorite has always been this one (which used to be called Nut Butter back in the day). I recently picked up a tub because I am pregnant and my skin has been really dry and itchy. This stuff moisturizes like none other. The scent is sweet, nutty, but very light. It is not greasy, but does take a bit of time to soak in. Price is steep, but a tub does really last a long time, and I lucked out and when I went in they were having a sale. Even still, this stuff is great and I would pay full price if I had to.
