I first read about The Body Shop's Body Butters in an editorial in a teen magazine way back when I was in high school. They said that this product was marked down to P395.00 for a 200ml tub, so I wasted no time and got one in Mango, which is for very dry skin. My skin used to feel uncomfortable all the time, itching from dryness. My legs used to be scaly, too, no matter how much lotion I slather on. Prior to using this body butter, I tried countless bottles of lotions bought from department stores and supermarkets, but all did not do anything for my skin, so trust me when I say that this product really works! I have been using this body butter for 7 years now.
It is very important to take care of our skin to keep it looking young and vibrant. I exfoliate with The Body Shop Body Scrub in Mango every week and use this Body Butter right after. But I also use this Body Butter every night (after I shower/before I go to sleep).
A little goes a long way when you use this because of its thick and creamy (not watery) texture.
It leaves skin soft, silky, and hydrated.
It leaves a healthy sheen/glow on your skin.
It leaves just the right amount of fragrance on your skin.
It comes in a tub, not very hygienic to use, unless you use a spatula to get the product out of the tub (but only if you are super OC).
For those who commute, this product might make dirt/pollution stick to your skin. It is advisable to use this at night.
For hot, humid days, this might make you feel sticky when you sweat.
The price increase, which I hope stops. Because I got my first tub at P395.00, and now it’s P695.
Would I repurchase? Yes!
Price: P695.00 (200ml)
Available at all The Body Shop outlets nationwide.
