The Body Shop Body Butters - Review!

Hey Beauts,

I'm going to start todays post off by saying that I really don't like body creams. I hate the way they feel, the sticky feel they leave on your skin and how they feel when you climb into bed after applying it and you just stick to the bed sheets. I mainly put this down to only using 'cheap' body creams and I just haven't found one that doesn't do this to me yet.

However, a couple of weeks ago I discovered The Body Shop Body Butters (RRP: £13.00). I was given one as a present during Christmas 2012 and just left it in my draw thinking it would be the same as any other body cream I have ever used. But boy was I wrong. I tried it out and it just soaked right up into my skin not only leaving my skin feeling hydrated but it had none of the 'side effects' of body cream such as the sticky skin syndrome. The next morning my skin was feeling lovely and soft. Even bits of fluff or my hair were not even stuck to the sides of my legs. Everyones a winner!

But as well as this, the smell was amazing! I had the coconut one at the time and as soon as you open the lid, your nostrils are filled with such a wonderful scent. Even if applied onto the likes of sun-burn I don't think it wouldn sting just because how soft, creamy and silky the body butters are. Since discovering how much I loved this little pot of happiness I went onto The Body Shop website and did a little bit of online shopping picking up Cranberry Joy and Shea Butter which equally smell UH-Mazing and super softening!

I would highly recommend these body butters to anyone, especially if you aren't a fan of body creams! Have you tried any of The Body Shop Body Butters out before? And if so, what did you think of them? I'd also be curious as to if you know of any amazing body creams I should try? Let me know in the comments below and remember to follow on GFC and BlogLovin' if you aren't already! <3

    1. Oh No! That would really put me off using it too! haha!
      How about trying out a more fruity one - The mango scent is divine :D

  5. I love the body shop body butters too. I’ve tried the lemon one and not sure if it’s been discontinued but it was amazing. I’m currently using up the mango one. I find the consistency is different on different scents though but the lemon one was the best :-) xx
