I purchased this body butter in a set of six from costco for about £10. I really wanted the coconut and the white chocolate ones so the olive one was an added bonus.
I really like body butters because unlike the creams they are solid and so tend to go much further. You don't end up with a big blob in your hand and it all running everywhere. Ther tub is real olive green colour so you know what to expect as soon as you open the tub and yes the butter is also a green colour - avacado you would probably call it.
The first thing that disappointed me slightly was the fact that the tub was only two thirds full - in these days of reduced packaging couldn't they have made the pot the right size.
The second thing to disappoint me was the smell I found it a bit too strong and overpowering - though it did smell very fresh. I thought I would persevere and try some on. Here I wasn't disppointed - only a small amount is needed to make your skin feel really smooth and silky, and it felt that way for ages.
However still didn't really like the smell. My daughter however loves the smell and she has the tub of body butter - so I have given it a middling rating based on the fact that we both agree that it is a really good moisturiser but disagree over the fragrance
Delon Body Butter
I had never heard of these products, but having been given some of them a few months ago, have been using them, and am quite impressed.
~~Product and Packaging~~
The body butter itself comes in a large green plastic tub- great, we like plastic rather than glass. It has a screw on/off lid, and looks rather nice in the bathroom with its unobtrusive picture of an olive, and no obvious bright pictures.
Unscrew the lid, and there it is, in all its resplendent green glory. Not an unpleasant green, definitely a kind of olive green.
Loath as I am to stick in my finger, and spoil the level perfection of the thing, when I do, I find that the butter is more a thick cream than a definite butter; this pleases me because I have had some body butters which kind of solidify into quite a hard impenetrable mass.
The butter is very lightly scented, nothing overwhelming, and certainly nothing which would have to be masked, or which would detract from any perfume you were wearing. Not being very good at smells, I would say it smell a little bit cucumbery (my own descriptive word), but I could be totally wrong about it, and just using the fact that its green to say it smells of cucumber. Anyway, its not a smell to be avoided at all costs.
Simple dip in finger, apply to skin and massage.
It is quickly absorbed, so it wont take lots of massaging to get rid of residue.
~~Price and availability~~
The website, www.labdelon.com gives advice on where the product can be bought, but the products can also be bought online, although the prices given are in dollars. I have no idea of the conversion rate, so cant give the price in sterling, but for a 200ml tub, this sells online for $34.50.
~~What I think of it~~
I like this body butter, and would definitely buy another tub. Its a non greasy butter which is easily absorbed, and does leave skin feeling soft and moisturised without any of that wet feeling so often experienced after applying some creams.
The product is not tested on animals, and uses no animal ingredients, so for anyone watching out for these kind of things, its a good buy.
I like the fact that its in a big tub, and more importantly that the tub is plastic- no danger of glass on the tiled floor. The fact that its a tub, and not in a bottle means that I can see exactly how much I have got left, and can scrape my finger round the edge and the bottom of the tub for the very last bit.
One little word of warning- dont leave it on a sunny window sill, as I did. Its a butter, and butter melts. I didnt like it one little bit when I opened my butter tub to find it had practically liquefied. All is well now, and the process has been reversed- its a butter once more, and no harm seems to have befallen it.
A pleasantly scented, non greasy and moisturising body butter which I would recommend.
