I received the 6.75 oz. version as a gift and really enjoyed it! I have dry skin, and this sank in nicely and kept my skin hydrated. I apply lotion in the morning and after I shower at night. I enjoy the sharp green herbal scent and texture.

The only problem is that I went through my jar in less than a month. The same size is currently on one of TBS's very frequent sales for $12.60, and I honestly think that's too steep. I usually use Alba Botanica's Very Emollient Body Lotion, and I can get 32 oz. on Amazon for $10. While this one is more greasy and hydrating, I don't think the price is quite worth it.

I also find the tub packaging annoying to use and store and don't think that the cream is so thick it wouldn't work in a squeeze tube instead.

Overall, I would buy this again on discount and happily use it up as a gift but probably won't purchase it otherwise.

bought this stuff last weekend and totally fell in love with it. the scent is very subtle and fresh very moisturing as well. It's a very subtle fresh scent that you can layer up any perfume not like the other body butters example moringa. my husband have eczema and only use fragrance free body moisturizer like cetaphil which is also amazing. But i just wanted to give this one a try and it is great. the downside of this is that it is expensive specially if they're not on sale.
thats probably the only time i buy this is with a sale, luckily they had a buy two get one free on jumbo body butter and i was a happy camper.

I got this body butter at The Body Shop when they were running a 4 for 2 sale, and I have no regrets. I probably wouldn't have gotten it if I had to pay full price, but the sale made it worth it and I just love this product. It's much more hydrating than other moisturising creams/body butters I used before, and the scent is nice and subtle (I'm really sensitive to smells and really dislike flowery/sweet scents), without being boring. I think the packaging is really cute too, and there's A LOT of product in the jar. I'd say this will last me a good 2-3 months of everyday use, which is much more than what I'm used to.

- Packaging
- Scent
- Really moisturising

- Price is a bit steep

I bought a small tub of this to carry with me to use on my dry hands and elbows. It's lightly scented, don't really know how to describe it but it's not offensive, very neutral not floral. Works well to moisturize my dry hands and cuticles and the moisture will last through a couple of hand washings. Would repurchase.

Should try other ones too, but it smells wonderful and keeps me hydrated. Currently not using it because cheaper, not as hydrating lotions work fine for me too, but whenever I want to fancy it up a bit I get a Body Shop one.

Though I don't really have any cons against this product, I would never buy it again due to the price.

-It smells nicely.
-It hydrates A LOT.
-No allergic reaction.

Maybe a small con would be that due to its thickness is hard to expand through the skin, but it's a butter, so what else could I expect?

I really like this body butter, keeps my skin looking really moisturized and healthy. Coconut is my favorite scent but this is pretty nice too. Would repurchase.

This is by far the best smelling, most moisturising and effective body butters i have used! Been using it for more than a decade and don't have any plans of switching. My night time routine is never without it. Works wonders in keeping my skin soft and supple even on warm days that i dont use it.

Olive is quite a unique scent in the entire butter range. It is somewhere in-between those fruity exotic scents and those more nut-ones. It is quite an unusual one too, so you have to test it in-store before you purchase one. It is not a product that suits everyone.
Quality and texture wise it is just as great and awesome as all other ones from the Body Shop. Leaves your skin baby smooth and gorgeous.
