The Body Shop: Body Butter


I was in the Body Shop about a month ago and picked up their Body Butter which I've been wanting to try for awhile.  I was instantly hooked.  I chose the Pink Grapefruit body butter, I had a birthday coupon so I thought it was a perfect time to try out something new!

I knew the Body Shop was known for their body butters, most recently the Body Butter Duo, one side is regular body butter while the other side is formulated specifically for dry skin.  I'll buy that the next time around to try out.

Anyway, the smell of the pink grapefruit is lovely for summer, and in the morning after I shower really wakes me up.  It's super refreshing and natural.  Some people don't like using a body butter in the summer, but I enjoy using it all year...I love the results it gives, my skin is always super soft and healthy looking.

The main ingredients are shea butter, cocoa butter, and glycerin.  When applying this moisturizer you can literally feel it melt into your skin, which proves just how much of these great ingredients it's really made of.

There are so many different types of body butters, and they all serve different purposes depending on your skin type.  I have normal skin, which is why I can use this product all year round...and the pink grapefruit is in this category.  There are a bajillion different types, so click here to see which would be best for you!


PS: I've recently become obsessed with abuncha Body Shop products, and I'll be doing a lot of reviews since I've been using them long enough now to have solid opinions. I love how the Body Shop supports community trade by getting ingredients from poorer countries to help villages generate income.  They also do not test on animals, and currently have a campaign running to raise awareness of human trafficking.

  4. I only wear my body shop butter at night because it is very rich and creamy. My skin feels amazing in the morning. I bought the cranberry one in the Christmas range. To get more information.Visit: http://www.vegantreeowl.com.au
