As much as I hate the packaging of Body Shop body butters (so ugly!!!! for so much $$$!!!), the smell is what hooked me on this one. As far as I can tell, it smells NOTHING like almonds, but instead like some sort of powdery dream. Maybe I will find a way to re-package this product... empty it into one of my old Tutti Dolci body butter containers or something.
This is my favourite to all the body butters. I should say that i am not one of the people that finds these butters to be the ultimate moisturizers. For the most part i find them greasy and over-rated and usually prefer body lotions (not from the body shop) that come in a hygienic pump. That being said, i adore the smell of this. And the fact that they now seem to have ALL the body butters in a smaller package. I have never, ever finished a butter. And i have bought more than 5 since they came out with them a long time ago. So, i'd rather satisfy my craving with a smaller size that can be carried in a hand-bag.
Anyway, this particular butter smells divine and the smell lasts without being too over-powering. And it's not too greasy like some of the other.
Love it. Admittedly for the most part for the smell, but still. :)
This is one amazing body moisturiser! It smells so yummy and makes the skin super soft and edible :P
The best of the body butters: extremely moisturising, not at all irritating (some of the more highly fragranced ones are) and with a lovely subtle smell. This is one of the few body moisturisers that keeps my dry, eczema-prone hands comfortable. I also like the slightly more grown-up packaging.
