The Body Shop: Body Butter review



I'm pretty sure that every girl that has the slightest interest in pampering themselves has used The Body Shop body butters at one point or another. Even people who don't actually buy them for themselves we all end up accumulating them at Christmas or on our birthdays when our cousins are not quite sure what to get us and they're kind of strapped for cash.

I am not going to lie to you, I was never really one who felt the need to send so much time moisturising and buffing your skin, I didn't really see the point. However over the past year my love for pampering sessions has grown enormously which in turn means I have been using more and more different products to see what makes me feel most luscious. And these body butters seem to do the trick. So much so, I'm down to my last small tub of it, deffo gonna have to re-purchase ASAP.

The Body Shops' butters have a lovely texture, they feel like whipped cream, light and creamy but also rich, making it feel very luxurious. Not only is the texture of these butters amazing, the scent is also delectable, making them almost good enough to eat (not I said almost don't be getting any ideas). This particular butter is satsuma scented, orangey but more zesty than an orange body butter, it is sweet but definitely has a zing to it! I love the scent of this because it does not smell fake or factory made, it actually smells like a satsuma and it really does smell delicious.

These body butters make my skin feel super duper soft and its amazing to slather it on when you get out the bath or the shower but I personally do not think they are quite as moisturising as they could be. They do add a bit of moisture to the skin I will give them that, but I have started to suffer with dry skin and I partner these butters with an in-shower moisturising gel or lotion so the butters can top up on moisture and make my skin feel as soft as a peach!

Definitely worth buying if you're not looking for a super nourishing and moisturing butter, if you're looking for something light, luxe and lush then this is deffo for you!

  4. I have this body butter too! I love the smell but agree it's not as moisturising as I thought it would be. Do you use any products that you think are really good in the moisturising area? x

    1. I really like sanctuary butters/ moisturisers, I find they work really well and soak in quite quick so youre not sticky in your dressing gown or pjs!

  6. I ove Body Shop body butters - used to have a whole collection of them... friends would always call me a 'walking fruit salad' ahaha but they were just jealous! Satsuma is one of my favourites but I also loved the Cranberry shimmer one they have at Christmas time!
