This is just divine. I have tried nearly all the other body butters from the body shop and find most of them suffocating in scent (such as the mango...) but the pink grapefruit is light and fruity and does not linger for too long or give you a headache. Also, it is really quite moisturising for its texture.
This body butter is pretty much like other body butters... it's nice and moisturising, and does the job well.
The main difference is just the smell... this smell... it's kinda fresh, yet at times can smell kinda rank. So I'm not really sure as to what i really think about the smell.
Other than that it's not too bad... I've selected not buy again mainly because it's not the kind of smell I find memorable and something I would go for again and again, there are many other body butters that does the moisturising job the same and smells really really divine. So that's just about it.
I am a huge Pink Grapefruit fan from Candies to Drinks to Creams so when I saw this in a magazine I had to try it. Being someone who is not a The Body Shop regular I found the price a little expensive but was willing to shell out. The first time I used it on my body it was okay but not insanely moisturizing for my very dry skin but it did nothing to my eczema. The second time I used the body butter (after a bath) it made my sensitive skin itch like crazy. My mother uses it on her hands though.
- Smells devine (like authentic pink grapefruit)
- Good body butter for non-super dry skin
- Sensitive skin beware... may cause a reaction
I still keep it in the bathroom and have a whiff of it when I am in there :P continued >>
Mine ended up smelling disgusting after awhile so $10 for such a tiny pot is a huge rip-off. Even though I liked this product at first I'd never buy it again.
smells very realistic, very strong and like someone said before, at first it's overpowering. but it settles onto your skin with a really nice, fresh, sweet scent. the moisture is great. this is a really great pick-me-up kind of product. very refreshing, worth the money.
This is another good body butter from The Body Shop. The scent is really strong-it can be a bit over-powering when you put it on, but after a few minutes it's nice. It moisturisers really well and leaves a nice sheen to your skin.
Not my favourite body butter, but it's a nice one.
allergic reaction to this
and hte smell is awful
the ONLY one i dont like
lucky i only gota mini tub
I have used a lot of the Body Shop's other body butters and love them all - delicious scents coupled with a good rich butter that really does a good job of moisturizing your skin. Because I had used the other body butters I didn't do my usual check of MUA before buying this one. I did check afterwards, however and was at first surprised that everyone was raving about the lovely refreshing scent and no one seemed to agree with the conclusion that I had come to. But then I did find at least one person who agrees with me!
At first I too thought Gosh! This really does smell just like grapefruit - how scrummy! But within minutes this changed to - OMG it smells as though I have BO! Being a tightwad I am continuing to use it until it's finished but every time I go into the bathroom after I've used it I think it smells like a footballers changing room. I certainly won't buy it again as I can do without paying for the pleasure of stinking of sweat thanks!
This is one of my favorite scents in general and I think The Body Shop has perfected it in this body butter. It isn't too strong. It's refreshing...not too sticky. Love it!
This is more like a thick lotion than a butter. It is very light and refeshing, i used it first thing in the morning. I like the smell but it isnt as nice as the scrub. It also felt a little sticky at first but that soon disappeared.
