when I used to live in Michigan, this was the only moisturizer I could use on my body that would actually work. However, try to get ones on sale, since $20 each is a bit ridiculous lol

The ONLY body moisturizer I will use on my skin. EVER.
I am currently going through a Honey one, then I will be using a cocoa butter, then a peach, and then I have another Honey. These absorb like a dream, and never leave my skin greasy. Also, they smell divine. They are $20 each, so for lotion that's quite expensive, but its worth it. I like the fact that its in a tub, so you can use every single bit of it and not waste any. If you layer the butters with the body oil and the eau de toilette/ parfum, you smell amazing all day.

Love tbs body butters! ! If you have never tried them YOU MUST! ! I personally favour the almond one, but also like the brazil nut, papaya and passion fruit varieties too. Not overly keen on the pink grapefruit though, bit overpowering imo! I always buy mines when there is discount codes online, I got my last batch for £3 each!

TBS Body Butters are very moisturizing, great for very dry skin and come in lot's of great scents that really last on your skin. My only con is that they leave the skin a bit greasy.
I prefer to use these on my legs in the summer months the most.
I've always loved their products but I find it extremely disappointing that TBS, a company so against animal testing, is now owned by L'Oreal. :(

I love these body butters. They are great for super dry skin. I use mine after shaving, or after a day in the sun. They all smell great!

Body shops body butter reallly help my super dry skin. i have severe itching and dryness even with moisturizing lotions such as olay body quench and nivea body lotions. i have tried alot of other lotions aswell but really nothing worked for me. the only thing that helps my severely dry skin is body shops body butter. i use the pink vitamin e one. doesn't have much of a scent though, i wish it did. however, it really relieves my serious dryness so I am not complaining. i m gona try their other body butters once this one runs out.

I like the idea of these, and love some of their fruit flavors (mango, satsuma) but these leave me with a bit of a greasy after-feel. I appreciate body shop's commitment to fair trade, but its unlikely I'd repurchase this myself. I wouldn't mind, however, receiving this as a gift!

I bought a mango body butter last year and after only using it once the super strong fragrance forced me to throw it out. Today I ventured into a Body Shop and saw that they had a huge range of different butters so bought the 50ml small tubs of 2 of the least fragranced ones, Shea and coconut. Tonight I used the shea for the first time. It smelled stronger than the tester in the store but the fragrance is nice so doesn't bother me yet. It goes on smoothly and you have to rub it in fact because within seconds it starts dissapearing into your skin. The consistency after a few minutes actually feels like shea butter on the skin but more moisturizing. I'm saying this because pure 100% shea dries out my facial skin badly.
3 HOUR UPDATE:. It's a really nice smell but if I have this butter on my face and my eyes are starting to water then the scent is too strong. I decided to test out the coconut oil butter and within seconds of applying I felt a vast difference in my face. This one is more moisturizing. It has a greasier feel and my skin seems to like it more than the shea. SO far the smell is weaker so the scent isn't affecting me. We'll see after I sleep in it overnight though.
6 HOUR UPDATE: Showered and put the coconut butter all over my body and it struck me that it smells exactly like a coconut black hair grease I used to use to base my relaxer. It was a rush to slather it on as no sooner does it hit your skin than it starts to get too thick to spread so your pulling your skin to get it all over. On my face it's super thick. SO thick that if feels like I used Vaseline petroleum jelly but it took away my dry skin. I also noticed that after applying it a thin greasy film was left on my palms. I like the smell of this one better but wish they added less of it. It really doesn't need to smell this strong, or at least create an unscented version. The scents so far are the only drawback.
