I'm a lotion fiend and this one doesn't stack up to similiar priced brands. Bliss' "Look Ma, soft hands", L'Occtane, Burt's Bee beats this one as well as other mid range lotions at target like Giovanni. I love Korres masks and powders but not sure why these body butters and lip butters get all the rave reviews. They don't smell alluring at all, more like medicinal which I can't stand.
I was really hoping this was going to smell like the Guava lip butter, but it doesn't. I really did not care for the fragrance, even though it did a fairly good job of moisturizing my skin. I would not repurchase due to the fact that I dislike the fragrance.
This is a really nice body butter. It's really thick so I mostly use it on my hands. I am super picky about hand lotions; I hate the feeling of greasiness or lotion on my hands, but this sinks in really well and doesn't bother me. It's the first lotion that I have actually been able to stand on my hands that is also moisturizing enough. It smells good too - not too strong or unnatural. I have the travel size version from Sephora, of which I like the packaging very much. I do not like the packaging of the full-size version.
As other reviewers have mentioned this stuff is really thick but that just makes it last really long. I absorbs immediately into the skin and the smell last for hours. I am in love with this body butter and it is the only think I could ever stand putting on my skin. I use it before bed on any dry spots and after showering! Great stuff, I will definitely repurchase.
I bought this a few days ago after a SA at Sephora reccommended it to me. I had been using Dylan's Candy Bar but my boyfriend HATED me smelling like a chocolate cupcake and the smell was starting to get to me as well. The SA told me that she uses it(sureeee) and it literally changed the texture of her skin. Well a few days later I can say that I am not dissapointed!! I have a baaaddd habit of slathering on WAY too much lotion, which makes my body products last 1/4 of the amount of time they should. But with this it's hard to put too much on because it's SO thick. It took me a good ten minutes to rub it in the first time I attempted to use half the bottle in one use. It smells amazing, and it actually WORKS!! A bit pricey(27$USD) but SO worth it!
I bought this on a whim, as I was going on a long vacation and didn't want to pack my usual huge tub of body butter. So, I ordered the smaller-sized tube from Sephora.
I completely regret purchasing it... I should have got the larger size! I didn't think I'd love this stuff as much as I do.
First of all, the smell is very pleasant. It's much different than I expected. I wouldn't say it's a traditional guava scent... but it is very tropical smelling. Big points in my book for this alone!
I'm a nut when it comes to body butter, and in my opinion, this is the best one I've tried. It moisturises like mad (one doesn't need an obscene amount to do to the job, either), and it sinks in nicely. I love the way it makes my skin looks. It's glossy, but not greasy, and in my opinion, it tones and smoothes the skin, giving it a nice even appearance. The results last all day, as well.
I love slathering it on after a shower, after hair removal, and before bed. My skin is insanely soft. Even my partner commented on how nice my skin looked, how nice I smelled, and how smooth I felt.
I will most definitely be repurchasing this product. In a bigger size, of course! I also can't wait to try the other scents.
I bought this at Sephora w/o having read any review. I thought it smelled great but more like of a coconut scent than guava. It's thick but absorbs well and helped vanish the itchy, dry skin that I had. It's expensive even for a small size tube. If I had more $$ I'd buy this more often.
For the first time in ages, I am noticing a drastic change in my skin from a lotion. I use this all over after the shower. It smells nothing like Guava, it is more of a tropical, sweet coconut smell. It is easy to spread for a butter. The dispenser is fabulous, I wish everything came in that sort of container.
This is a lot more than I am used to spending on lotion, but I can see how this is worth the cost. My legs feel so silky!
This does not smell like guava, more like coconut/Hawaiian Tropic. The fragrance is long lasting. I put this on at night and can still smell it on my hands in the morning. This is supposed to be extra moisturizing for very dry skin but I found it to be an average body lotion. For my dry skin spots, I prefer Yes to Carrots body cream or Neutrogena Norwegian body lotion.
This is great stuff. Very moisturising without leaving a greasy feeling. Especially good on heels, elbows and knees after exfoliating. I love the fragrance even though it is more like coconut than guava. It would be medium on the price scale for me. Will repurchase. Also have this in Fig but prefer the guava fragrance.
