The one I purchased did not have "Thoroughly Therapeutic" printed on the label either but I believe its the same product. I found the scent of this body butter to be overly sweet scent. However, it does not linger for long. It comes in a tub , like most body butters. I was daunted by the fact that you really have to spread this cream on your body for it to absorb. It took too long for me so I ended up just using it on my feet with socks overnight. I did not find it to be that moisturizing despite its thickness. Will not repurchase.

OMG.. I received a sample of this and the moment I opened it up.. BARF! This stuff smells disgusting! Straight to the trash it went.. didn't even want to try it!

Mine is the same but it doesn't say Thoroughly Therapeutic on the label. I had just finished up a Body Shop body butter and had heard that the Tree Hut brand makes a good one that is a lot cheaper. I didn't feel like going to Ulta so I just grabbed this one at Target. Yes, it does moisturize...though it's not as thick as the Body Shop one so it feels more like a lotion and you have to use more but the reason I will never buy this again is the smell. Honestly the most disgusting thing I've ever smelled. I put it up to my husbands nose just to see his reaction....he almost vomited. It's THAT bad.

Minus 1 star for the scent. I use this product on my elbows, knees, soles of my feet etc. Not too creamy and blends into skin without feeling greasy.

Stinky and sticky.

I'm a Burt's Bees fanatic, but I did not like this product. The smell was a little too strong, even though I like honey. I thought it applied well, but the moisturizing factor was not good. I applied it in the morning and by 5 pm my legs were dry and flaky. Not what I expected from a "body butter". Will not repurchase.

BB's Honey Shea Body Butter gets a mixed review from me. The scent is horrendous! It has an overpoweringly stinky-sweet, almost musty scent. And it's something I smell ALL day long. Ick. This does not smell faintly of honey or shea - it is a very intense smell.
**I should mention I used this on my baby belly trying to prevent stretch marks later in my pregnancy - so I was using a LOT of this product and maybe that's why it stank to high heaven.
Besides the smell, the product wasn't so bad. It is thick and creamy, and applies smoothly. It's definitely heavier than normal lotion, in a greasy but not waxy way, but it's body butter so that is to be expected.

This is so disgusting....there aren't words to describe it. The smell is so pukingly sweet it makes my stomach ache. I literally had a pounding headache after 15 minutes of having this on my hands. It doesn't soak in at all and feels sticky like syrup. I'm going to try taking it back to Walgreens because it was $13! HUGE FAIL :-( UPDATE: Ok, it's not like me to do this but seriously.........I had to come back and edit this review. I've had this crap on my hands for about an hour now and I finally had to go scrub my hands with soap 3x to get it off. The smell is like honey on steroids. Plain honey smells fine. This is unbelievably nasty. I have never smelled anything so hideous and suffocating in a lotion before. I had to take ibuprofen to knock down the headache this left me. I normally like some of the Burt's Bees stuff just fine but this is just beyond words.

I use quite a few of burts bees products that I like a lot...like the honey and milk lotion and the shimmery one (forgot what it was called). My husband actually bought this for me when it was on sale somewhere and I was excited to use it. Unfortunately...I was very dissapointed. The texture is not like the other smooth like other body butters I love (the body shop). Instead, it kind of reminds me of solidified fat that's kind of chunky. When it goes on, it feels like it does not even absorb but seems kind of waxy..similar to some of the other products. However, for a body butter I would think it'd be more moisturizing. The smell is kind of awful to me as well. I wish it would've worked but definetely would not buy again. My husband won't even let me put it on him and tells me to get the coconut body butter from body shop instead!

This does not go on very smoothly; instead, it kind of streaks on in some places, yet clumps up in others. It doesn't absorb well, nor does it really seem to moisturize. The smell is overly sweet and cloying. I'm switching back to The Body Shop's shea butter body butter and Yes to Carrots body butter!

This stuff is nice but I stopped using it -- it's very rich if you need something very hydrating, soothing & comforting (shea butter is excellent) & it smells super honey-sweet (which was why I stopped using it, although it was the delicious honey scent that drew me to it in the first place). Just like Cherub573 below my review, I also discovered this at a friend's house (she had a girls' spa night party).
I paid $12 for a tub a few yrs back & I don't remember if I kept it or where I might have put it. It's great for very dry winters & I used to use it on my hands & feet. I couldn't put this on my legs (though I wanted to, because it makes the skin very soft & touchable) as the scent would just become too overpowering.
If you like rich body butters, this one is nice & natural.
I have to give it 3 lippies (though I'd like to give it 3.5) because it leaves a greasy feeling on my hands & feet, so it doesn't sink in completely.

I used this when I was staying at a friend's house. I was attracted to the scent initially. I like it, but only think it works as a light moisturizer, unlike most body butters. It does feel slightly tacky upon application, but after about 15 minutes my skin feels just normal and soft, and is softly scented like honey. I actually just plan on using it as a fragrance balm when I don't feel like wearing perfume. In my opinion, it is not as heavily scented as Sephora's body butters, or something you might find at Victoria's Secret or Bath and Body Works. If I put my nose up to my skin, I can still smell it hours later though.
The reason I was actually compelled to purchase my own tub of this body butter is because I received numerous, unsolicited compliments on how good I smelled. My friend who I borrowed it from didn't even recognize the scent, she said it smelled much better and different on me than her. I think it's a bit pricey at ~$13 a tub, but my favorite Sephora body butter costs $16, so.....
EDIT: The tub I received was the "newer" formulation apparently? It's much more whipped; my friend's tub was very dense, like butter from the fridge. It smells and moisturizes the same, though.

Sephora was out of Sephora's brand body butter probably because of the cold winter weather and holiday spending. I purchased BB Honey Shea Butter instead. It was not easily absorbed and didn't seem to soften my skin like the Sephora brand shea body butter. The skin on my legs seems flakey and in need of more moisture. I miss the light, clean smell of the Sephora brand so I'm off on a quest to purchase my favorite sephora brand before my skin falls off!

In a pinch I'd use this but I gotta say after the intense love affair I had with Burt lotions, this left me cold. Probably because this place near my old apartment had managed to wrangle some kind of miracle body butter during my whole 'body butter' phase...and whatever the heck that was it just blew every other thing out of the market. It was a european brand, Italian I think..anyway, I liked this ok but felt it didn't really work as well as their lotions do, and gave up after one tub.

I bought this because I have very dry skin and this winter has been extremely cold, causing my skin to flake. Unfortunately, I've wasted my money. This is a product I wouldn't even give to my greatest enemy. I slathered this stuff onto my body after I showered but each time it took quite some time to actually rub the product into my skin - it doesn't absorb very well and just sits on top, leaving a sticky residue. The smell is absolutely bizarre and giving it the benefit of the doubt, I actually used this butter daily for two weeks. I think it has actually worsened the condition of my skin. i've stopped using it and switched to a different moisturizer and my skin feels quite nice again. Definitely would not recommend.

this butter seems very rich but the smell is no nauseating
pls do not buy it smells awful
i am taking mine back!

I like the luxurious texture; it reminded me of whipped butter or frosting. I used it in the winter when my skin gets really dry, and it was a good moisturizer. It has no petrochemicals or parabens, and it doesn't contain a lot of scary-sounding chemicals, so it's probably more natural than some other products. I would like to try other Burt's Bees products.

This product was not moisturizing for me and the smell was overpowering. My husband couldn't stand it nor could I.

I have both the Honey Shea Butter and the Cocoa Butter and Macadamia Nut, and they are both really nice. I like the Honey scent better. The scent fades a half hour or so after application. It suggests applying all over your body... that would be kind of gross to me, because it is really thick. I use it only on my elbows and knees and feet. I used it on my legs once when traveling, and it was a little sticky. Weird.

Burt's Bees thoroughly therapeutic honey and shea butter (whew) is a wonderful body butter with a very sweet honey (sort of overbearing) scent. I didn't realize that this moisturizer is not 100% fragrance free until after I bought this but it is 99.01% natural! And that is MORE than most moisturizers can say.
I always try lotions on my face even though they are recommended for the body only (ha). I don't know why, but I feel the real test for moisturizers is the face, and since mine is extremely sensitive it is a hugeee test for me. You are probably thinking why would I even put myself through that knowing that it might cause a reaction?! Well I am risk-taker damn it!
Anyway, this stuff smells super duper sweet. When you open the jar it literally looks like whooped butter but hardened. I like the way it lathers, it is not too greasy either. The smell is a little overbearing (but not as bad as their honey lip balm) and it is great for the body! (wow).
I will keep this one in my bag, and use it for my arms and legs, but anywhere on my neck and face gives me a headache (sigh).
For some reason, Burt's Bees is still not my favorite brand. Lots of people rave about them because of how natural it is, but did you hear it might be merging with another company and they may be adding petroleum to their products?? Not good!! Try and buy their products before they start replacing some natural ingredients for cheap petroleum!
