The Body Shop - Body Butters Review

For as long as I can remember my Mum's been a fan of The Body Shop's body butters, meaning that I've used them for years. They are incredible, and I can see why they're so popular!




The body butters come in a wide variety of delicious scents, but my favourites are the Mango, Satsuma and Grapefruit ones. In the shop there is always a table with all of the testers, but Mango is the one I always reach for.

They're all thick body butters that come in the large, round, colourful pots.

When applied, they sink in to the skin really quickly, so there's none of that awkward waiting around time. I find they really moisturise my skin, but don't leave it feeling greasy at all.

The scent lingers for a good 5 hours, which I personally think is incredible, but they're not too over powering either. I find a pot of this lasts for ages, so despite being £13 for 200ml it's not actually too pricey, in the scheme of things.

I definitely recommend these, and if you haven't tried one yet, do!
What's your favourite body butter scent?

  2. You know, I cannot live without body butters. They are so much better than lotion. Goodness, mango sounds like a delicious smell.
