The BEST body butter ever for dry, itchy cold winter skin. The moisture sinks in and lasts so well, that when I take my bath 24 hours later, I actually feel how velvety my legs still feel so many hours after application. Not overly fond about the smell initially, but as it sinks into my skin it kind of synergizes with my body and it develops into something else, a more intimate and friendly scent. I especially love the fact that it`s being sold into larger tubs now, at least in Japan, so I don`t have to keep running back to the Body Shop store every few weeks. Too heavy to use in summer, but then I do switch to something lighter then.

My fav TBS body butter and I have tried many. Coconut is greasy, like bathing in oil, bleah, olive is great but smells like you rolled in grass for hours. Shea is perfection: sinks right in, no sticky residue, and smells amazing. It absorbes very fast but also does a good job at moisturizing

For its thickness, and considering it contains shea butter, I thought this body butter would be more moisturising. It ended up being an ok product which takes a while to spread and absorb, so not very good for mornings. I also didn't like the smell at all, smells cheap and synthetic in that annoying way when a brand seems to want to pull off the 'hey look, this cream smells like this because it has shea butter in it'. I also find all the Body Shop body butters to be extremely overpriced. Won't buy again.

I bought this along with the coconut one but I've just used the latter until yesterday. It's amazing & I love it! It moisturizes well and absorbed quickly into skin. It's not as sticky as the coconut one and I like it that way.

wonderful, just wonderful. It's light, hydrates so well and has a delicate scent, almost nutty. I have purchased this over and over again. the mini versions are great to put in your purse for a quick hydration boost on the go.

This is my new favourite body lotion. It smells amazing, it's very moisturizing and it isn't overly greasy. I got the jumbo size for 50% off so it wasn't too expensive, but it's not cheap either (Usually $32 in CAD).

I saw some reviews saying that people think they changed the formula and it isn't as moisturizing anymore, and I can't comment on that because I never tried the previous formula, but I haven't noticed that to be an issue. I'm obsessed with the scent, seriously. It's subtle and light but very pleasant, so you could easily layer another fragrance with it and it wouldn't be overwhelming, but it also smells great on it's own.

This is going to be a regularly stocked item in my beauty routine from now on.

As with all the other TBS body butters I've tried, this one is really moisturising and leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and wonderfully hydrated. However, the reason for 4 lippies is because of the scent - it's way too strong! It's hard to put my finger on what the scent is, but my best guess is a cross between coconut and something floral. It lingers all day too which isn't ideal for me as I also wear perfume and this can have a tendency to interfere with that, resulting in quite a sour scent at times. Therefore, if you wanted to give this a try I would suggest skipping the perfume on the days you use this as it could end up being a bit overkill in the scent department!

This is incredibly moisturizing. Although it can get a bit sticky, after a while it does sink in and and my (very) dry skin stays moisturized even into the next day. It has a clean floral scent that is pleasant, but kinda strong. Overall, really nice.

My true love for Canada's north !
I live in a cold dry area in northern Canada and wintertime is brutal for my poor dry itchy skin :( I started using the Shea body butter along with the Shea lotion body wash and it is my saving grace ! Instant relief from itchy dry skin and trust me I've tried it all ! Pretty much every lotion/cream on the market that claims to target these issues . Nothing worked until this little crock of heaven ! Soaks in and doesn't leave you feeling sticky . Just hydrated and comfortable. On top of those obvious benefits I get to smell yummylicious! Holy Grail item !
