Winter is coming? No. Winter is here.
And so… its time to get those body butters and rich moisturizers out that are stored away. On non-winter days, my skin doesn’t need that much moisturizing. It is mostly oily, less so on my hands and legs. But still I use the old Johnson and Johnson baby oil. I got rudely reminded by itchy, super-dry skin on my legs, winter is really here and the skin needs a lot of special moisturizing care.
So I took out the product I had locked away for a few months now.
This is the review of that product. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter. Read on to know more.
Price: I am sorry. I don’t remember it. I bought it about a year back during a sale at one of their stores. I think it was close to Rs. 550.
Content: 50ml (48g) * 3. I got three small boxes of the body butters in Strawberry, Sweet Lemon and Moringa flavors.
It does not all look all organic. I don’t understand the ingredients still but I know the parabens are not good. I haven’t had any problems though.
It is a tiny 50ml very wide tub. It looks pretty cute being small and red and the picture of strawberries on the top.
My experience with TBS Strawberry Body Butter:
The body butters are highly moisturizing making them perfect for the winter. You can see the amount I have left in the tub.
I love the smell. It smells like *real* strawberries. I hate strawberry ice-cream but this, I love. It is my favorite of the three. Everyone who was around while I used it or after I had used the product had only good things to say about the smell.
The Body Butter is very thick creamy but can be easily spread over the skin. I am not digging the tub packaging but there are a lot of products in tubs these days. I am used to it.
- Very moisturizing. Perfect for winters.
- Great for my skin. It feels moisturizing enough to be good for dry skins too.
- Smells like real strawberries. Doesn’t seem very strong.
- Body shop doesn’t test on animals.
- Tub packaging.
- Parabens. Not all “organic”.
No other real con.
The Body Shop Body Butters according to me are a must have for winters. I finished off the Lemon Body Butter last winter. Moringa Body Butter also smells very nice and flowery. There is very little of that left too. I will be buying one more bigger tub, probably in a different flavor or may be a holiday gift pack like this one.
Rating: 5/5 (It might be over-moisturizing for summer season though)
See ya all with another post soon,
