“ Brand: Heathcote & Ivory / Type: Body Butter / What it does: Enricheses „
As I mentioned in some of my previous reviews, I like having my toiletries in sets. That's why when I bought the Heathcote & Ivory Vanilla and Brown Sugar Shower Gel, the Body Butter had to follow.
It comes in a small, round plastic pot which is very easy to open (you just twist the lid). The pot itself is see-through whereas the body butter has a pale yellow colour so I can just about see how much of it is left. As expected, the basic information about the product is on the lid with further information at the back. Similarly to the shower gel, the font is mostly yellow which (especially at the bottom of the pot) makes it difficult to read.
Having opened the pot and smelled the body butter, I immediately fell in love with the scent. It is very sweet but fairly delicate meaning it's not overwhelming; I can definitely sense vanilla here and I think the brown sugar gives it a sweet note. What I really like about it is that even though I feel it makes my skin smell lovely, it fades away fairly quickly meaning I don't get sick of it.
It has a very rich texture - I would even say it's a bit too rich and it's difficult to massage it into the skin. When I put it on the heater, it melts slightly and is easier to apply. It contains shea butter, vitamin E and glycerin that are meant to leave my skin soft and smooth. Indeed, this is the case. I could see the difference after the first use: my skin became visibly softer. It is also a very good moisturiser (my skin is normal with tendency to get dry in certain places such as elbows) and it really does hydrate skin after one use.
The body butter doesn't contain any parabens or sulphates.
Unfortunately, the pot (120ml) doesn't go a very long way meaning that with the price of £4.50 (online), it isn't a cheap body butter. Therefore even though I really enjoyed using it, I will not be buying it again.
Thank you for reading my review.
