Oh...my poor poor skin. I abuse it so. What whips it back into shape? Why, this Mango Body Butter does. It slides right on and makes my ashy flaking skin normal again. Only problem is the strength of scent - it is very strong - but I can deal with that for skin like this!
I remember when the Body Butters first came out, they were a different consistency. More like hard vaseline, very oily. I was told they'd been reformulated to be more cream-like so I decided to try. Love it! The Mango is the same delicious smell I remember, and the rich cream formulation is great. I use this on my hands and cuticles at night and its made a big difference. My only suggestion would be that the Body Shop add some ridges or something to the sides of the cap, so that your slick hands have something to grab on to when you're trying to put the lid back on.
This stuff is SUPER moisturizing. I love the smell (I only use it on one area at a time so as not be overpowered by mangoes)...I use it currently as a hand/nail cream, but can also see using it on my legs after I shower for extra moisture. Great buy!
A girlfriend of mine convinced me to buy this product one day (she LOVES the sesame version), and I don't regret it. Seriously, this stuff is great for dry skin (me!). I like to put it on after a shower at night. Its so smooth and silky. It doesn't compare to your regular lotion. And, if you like Mangoes like I do, all the better! Its kinda pricey @ $16 a pop, but it lasts a good while.
I can't support the smell, too overpowering!
I Live by this stuff! I have very dry legs and it makes them so moisturized! Put it on right after your shower and it seals in the moisture! I have bought this numerous times and i intend to keep doing so.
I did not like this product. The scent of mango is so over-powering over time that it literally caused my eyes to tear. I could not wear this for any sustained period of time because of this so I cannot really speak to its moisturizing properties. It is marketed for extra dry skin and sells for $16. I do know that while it was on it felt a bit tacky on my skin. I did like the Sesame Body Butter by TBS and found it moisturizing and pleasantly scented, however.
HG of all body lotions/butters/creams! I'm from a tropical country, so putting this on instantly made me feel like I was at home. It lasts forever, and the scent is just AMAZING. keeps my naturally dry skin smooth and silky, even in blistering cold winters. will DEFINITELY be buying this one again!
This is a pretty good product. The smell is pleasant, not too overpowering, and it doesn't interfere too much with perfume, etc. It moisturizes well, but not better than others I've tried. It tends to run out fast as well, so for me it's not worth the money.
Like most others I liked the smell of this product.I like the smell of the papaya products more, but these are for normal skin and I have a dry skin.The showergel smells more like mango than the body butter.I think that's a shame.It moisturizes quite well, but not as well as my Weleda body oils and bodylotions.I didn't think it was greasy.I will not repurchase.I will try the cocao body butter.Viewers are more positive about the moisturizer results of this body butter.
