Since The Body Shop is quite popular, especially their body butters, I become curious and wanted to try to see for myself what they might do to my skin. I also like that their products are natural and not tested on animals. Do I also need to mention that most of their products smells delicious!
Well, no more chitchat, let's get right to the point: first review of my first body butter from TBS:
The Strawberry Body Butter
I originally was deciding on buying the lemon body butter, because I like the citrustic, lemony fragrance, but to my disappointment I didn't liked the scent, so I decided to go for the strawberry body butter because it had a nice scent^^
I was lucky to get a bigger version with almost the same price as the original one. Mine is 300 ml:D hehe, more for me to use! It's intended for normal to dry skin.
The Scent: Strawberry like, a mix of cotton candy and sweet strawberry scent. Sugary, candylike, very girlylike. (
excuse the weird use of words to describe the scent) The scent lingers onto the next day and may linger onto your clothes.
The Formula: Looks solid in the jar, but once you dip your hands into the butter, it becomes soft and ''melts'' on the skin. Easy to smooth out, very moisturising^^ It took some time to sink into the skin, but although it did, I felt that it left a greasy feeling on the skin. Bearable, but I could feel that there was something on my skin if I ran my fingers over-.- Contains shea butter.
Moisture power: 5/5
Conclusion: I think this is a great moisturising body butter for the winter season, but maybe not that great for warmer seasons because of the greasiness. It smells nice and the scent doesn't fade away quickly. I will definitely try more of TBS body butters and their other products^^
