This stuff smells delicious, and I appreciate the natural leaning of Korres products. However, this is a BUTTER so be warned that it is pretty heavy and provides intense moisturizing. This is almost something to use on your elbows... that kind of consistency. I tend to get white bumps on the back of my triceps if I use anything too heavy, so after one bottle of this I decided to stay away.
I used the Yoghurt body butter before the guava, and although I like the yoghurt smell better, the guava mosturises better. The yoghurt gave me zits as it was too rich, but I think the Guava is slightly less richer in texture and that suits me just fine!
I am baffled as to why this costs as much as it does and the moisturizing benefits for a body butter are not there at all. The scent is pretty nice, doesn't linger all that long but doesn't smell at all what I assumed guava should smell like. Makes me really glad I didn't pay full price for this and only paid a third of the price on ebay. So I'll finish this tube but won't buy again.
Love it, the best thing about this is that the moisturizing effects LINGER unlike other lotions/butters that keep you soft temporarily. My legs feel like silk. It takes a little more effort to rub in but the effort is well worth it for the lasting effects.
I got a sample of this in a Korres kit. I wasn't looking for another body cream, but the texture of this stuff is just too good! Despite being called a "butter," it is a slightly thick lotion (I've used other things that I would classify more as butters since they are so difficult to spread!). It spreads easily on the skin, doesn't feel sticky or greasy, and leaves skin soft throughout the day. In fact, it is this last point - how my skin continued to feel throughout the day - that impressed me most. I can't comment on the smell as I have almost no sense of smell, but others seem to like it. Definetly has made me a convert of Korres' Body Butters!
Fantastic lotion, ridiculous price. Smells great- kind of "nutty" and warm smelling. Makes your skin so soft that it kind of slides off of everything, but not greasy. LOVE this- just think the price is outrageous. Have repurchased several times in spite of the price, which says something.
I really like this product. Got the trio package from Whole Food. Though it's quite expensive, I use this as a hand lotion and find it very moisturizing; soaks right into my skin. It's not greasy and like the silky smooth feeling after using it. It smells great though I don't think it smells quite like Guava. Maybe because it has more sweetness to it.
My overly sensitive skin is in love with this product. I work at Sephora and have tried everything from Bliss' body butters, Carol's Daughter Souffles', to Sephora's Super Body butter. Nothing is comparable to Korres' Guava Body Butter. Retailing at $21 for 5oz, and in a product saving pump this is the best thing hands down for dry skin. It's absorb quickly leaving now oily film and it's smell is divine and natural. Ask for a sample next time you see it and it will rock your world!
You can purchase them in a travel size for $8.50, pump container 5oz for $21 and Large squeeze bottle 8.5oz for $27.
What a great lotion!! I love how it is super moisturizing and not greasy, and how the scent doesn't linger for hours. Some other lotions, like ones from Bath&Body Works, REEK rottenly 12 hours later. With this, however, the scent is mostly gone after it dries and you put your clothes on. I love it, but those of you who like to asphyxiate yourselves may not. continued >>
This stuff smells divine! Melts into skin very nicely and smells better after I've had it on for awhile. Even my boyfriend told me that I smelled "Delectable" when I had this on before bed on night and he doesn't comment very often on how I smell. Men...
The consistency of this is thicker than a lotion but not as thick as a body cream. I like the pump dispenser but I think that a tube would be better in order to get all the product out. I picked this up from Ulta and plan to try out more of their products. I like more natural body products anyway. A little expensive for what it is, but it's the price you pay for the good stuff. Just divine...
