Derma V10 Body Butter
Advantages: Smells, nice, good packaging, works really well even on dry skin, cheap
Disadvantages: none at all!
Derma V10 is a brand that can be found in places like Wilkinsons and pound shops, and as you would expect knowing that, their products generally cost £1 each. It's not something I would have even looked at a couple of years ago but now I'm trying to save money I've been giving some of their products a try. I picked up the Derma V10 Cocoa Body butter for £1 in Wilkinsons.
The body butter comes in a large, round plastic pot, similar to the Body Shop's body butters. It has a screw off lid which is easy to open and close, and under this lid is a plastic cover that goes over the top of the butter, stopping it from going into the lid. I was surprised by this as it's a little touch I usually expect from more expensive brands, but that even the Body shop doesn't do, yet this much cheaper brand does. Fantastic.
The butter itself is thick in consistency as you would expect of a body butter. It has a smooth creamy texture but has something about it that's impossible to describe that just makes it different to any other body butter I've used before. It glides smoothly onto my skin and is easy to massage in, absorbing fairly quickly, especially considering it's thick consistency.
I find this sinks quite nicely into the skin so that even before it's fully absorbed it doesn't feel greasy or heavy on my skin, but leaves it feeling really soft and smooth. The scent of the butter is absolutely lovely, which surprised me as I usually just about tolerate cocoa butter smells, but this actually smells really delicious and makes me want to eat it (which you shouldn't do, obviously). The scent lingers all day too, so I like to use it on my hands because then I get a whiff of it every time I put my hands to my face.
I htink this does a really good job of moisturising my skin and since I've been using it I've definitely noticed an improvement in the look and feel of my skin. It gives my skin a nice dewy sheen to it that makes it look really healthy, and where I've used it on dry patches they are now nowhere to be seen after just a couple of weeks use. I think this proves that you don't have to pay over the odds for effective products.
Al in all I'm really impressed with this body butter and I'll definitely be buying it again.
