This does absolutely nothing for my hands. It makes my hands drier, my cuticles a lot drier, and bleed. Prior to using this, my hands were soft and had zero issues with dryness. I have been using about 4 times a day for a week, and just threw the rest in the garbage can. Waste of money. Zero stars, if possible.

Used this on winter time and I loved it. It's deeply moisturizing, glides on effortlessly and sinks in. It does have a sweetish perfume to it which some people might find heavy. When used in conjunction with their Shea Body Scrub, you get a silky smooth skin. Just be cautious if you're acne-prone because this is heavily saturated in oils.

I bought this body butter out of curiosity. It's a very thick consistency body moisturizer, beautifully scented. The scent lingers all day long but that was no problem for me. My problem with this product is that I cannot stand its stickyness... I tried using a tiny bit, nothing; I tried rubbing it for a longer time on the skin, nothing; it's always there, on top of my skin, sticking on my pyjamas and on my clothes all day long...that is the obvious reason why I will never ever repurchase this product.

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.

yep, I'm obsessed with this one. I have the entire Shea range, and I carry a travelsize butter in my purse to use as a handcream. The scent comes on very strong but turns deliciously sweet and nutty once it settles down on my skin. It helps to soften my rough and irritated elbows and leaves my skin very soft and smooth. Dry patches disappear within a few days of use. I will always have this one with me, I love it that much.

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.
