review: the body shop strawberry body butter ♥

Now, before I begin this review I will tell each of you one fact about me which is 'I am a sucker for anything that smells sickeningly sweet'. It's true. I hate sweets and candy and milkshakes, but anything that smells like them will have me won over instanstly. Having already tried the coconut body butter from The Body Shop (which I personally loved as it was brilliant for dry skin), I decided to pick up the strawberry one, which I had never smelt before, and boy oh boy, it's right up my street.

Here's what The Body Shop say about this product:

'This product provides 24 hour hydration, leaves skin feeling silky and smooth, has a buttery texture along with a sweet strawberry scent. Quickly absorbed and provides round the clock hydration'

So getting out of a lovely bath, I tested the product out to see just how good it really is. And I can honestly say it's beautiful, and certainly didn't disapoint. It's moistursing, it smells AMAZING and dried in fairly quickly without any stickiness, which is something I find a lot with body butters. If your not a fan of sweet smells, this won't be for you - My mum for example, hated it and prefers the coconut butter. This product is suggested for normal skin, and therefore it may not moisturise dry skin as well as some of the other butters by The Body Shop, but it does feel beautiful on the skin!

At £12.50 for 200ml of delicious product, I would expect this to be more expensive, and I would definitley reccommend it to anyone who loves sweet scents like me.

Here's where you can get this bad boy -

If anyone can recommend any other lovely butters do leave me a comment :)
Much love, Orla
