I absolutely love The Body Shop, and if you have been reading my blogposts for a while you must be aware of this little fact - just search for 'Body Shop' on my blog. Buying a body butter for myself is something I don't do too often - but when I buy one for myself I want to make sure I love it. I currently have four body butters - all of them lovely and all of them perfect for a specific occasion.
The Almond body butter is my newest purchase - and my best one. I love the scent - it's a little bit sweeter than the taste/scent of regular almonds and it makes me think of Christmas and candles and happiness. It nourishes my skin and it soaks in quite quickly for a body butter - I usually apply it after taking a bath, and the scent stays on for quite some time which is a plus for me. I hate it when I apply a product which should smell nice and does actually smell nice - but stops smelling nice after a few hours. This one doesn't do that. Yay!
I adore the Coconut body butter but it's not an autumnal scent. I wore it a lot in the summer but I think I'll put it away for when the temperatures start getting a bit more acceptable. The scent is much, much stronger than the Almond body butter - whenever I'm wearing the body butter, the only thing I hear is 'huh? Coconuts?' - anyways, like I said: this is what a body butter should do. And about the scent itself: like the name says, it smells like coconuts - nothing more, nothing less. And I love it!
I have a weird relationship with this body butter (and it's even weirder that I have a relationship with my body butter in the first place) - I usually love the scent but sometimes it just really puts me off. I don't know what it is - it might be my mood, I have no idea. It smells like a passionfruit smoothie and if it were a liquid, I'd drink it. Sometimes. Hehe. This one doesn't soak in as easily as the other body butters but that doesn't matter - as it's a summery scent you'd probably be wearing less clothes so it wouldn't matter!
This body butter is quite versatile - it's lovely for the winter but it can be quite fresh for the summer as well. Don't get me wrong - it isn't the freshest body butter in the shop but wearing the body butter feels clean and warm. I don't know how I should explain the scent - the 'nut' body butters which seem to be quite hot at this very moment are quite hard to explain as I wouldn't know how a brazil nut smells or tastes (can you even eat them?!). The Body Shop is having the same problem as me - it describes the body butter as 'nutty'.
I hope you liked this little combined review! I didn't want to review every body butter seperately as they are not extraordinary enough for that - but I still wanted to write about them because I simply love them! I don't use body butters on a daily basis - they take so much longer to sink in than a body lotion or body spray but I love using them on a pamper evening. Not using them on a daily basis makes using body butters feel more special, luxurious and enjoyable!
