Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter
Advantages: SOFT, NICE SMELL AND CHEAP
Disadvantages: DOESN'T MOISTURISE FOR AS LONG AS PREMIUM BUTTERS DO
Dermalogics is produced by a comapny called Harlow and Pierre.
This is the Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter. It is suited for normal to dry skin and is designed to give skin a radiant glow. Dermalogics do not test their products on animals.
The body butter comes in a pretty plain white tub which is quite similar to that of Body Shop Body Butters. The lid is a twist off lid and the pot is quite deep.
The lid has a sticker covering almost the full surface of it. The sticker has an delightful coconut image background. The Dermalogics logo and product name and description is also on the sticker.
There is also a sticker on the base with the ingredients and a comments advising that you should avoid contact with your eyes.
*The Body Butter*
The body butter is a bright and pure white butter which is of medium consistency. It isn't runny that it will run out the tub though isn't thick that it is difficult to scoop out the tub. The coconut scent is quite strong and sweet.
To use the body butter, simply scoop some onto your hand and massage into skin until absorbed. This can be used after a bath/shower or on normal dry skin.
*Availability and Price*
The butter comes in a 220ml plastic tub. I bought mine from B&Ms for 99p however I have seen this in Poundland and Iceland. I am pretty sure I spotted it in Home Bargains for 49p!
After some bad experiences with Body Shop butters in the past, I steered clear of them for years until Soap and Glory caught my eye and I have been hooked ever since. I spotted this Dermalogics one a few months back but didn't buy it til last month.
I quite like coconut scents and this was no exception though I would say it was a tad overpowering at first. The tub is basic but nice enough. I quite like the consistency of the cream, not too thick and not runny whatsoever. One thing that did shock me though is that the butter felt a bit warm and not cooling like others. I think this would be best put in the fridge for a cooling butter like it should be!
The butter was easy to scoop up and it felt soft and smooth to the touch. On hitting the skin, the butter takes a wee while to massage in but when it does, it doesn't leave an oily texture like other butters do. My skin felt smooth and supple and the coconut left a nice aroma.
I used this on my arms and paid particular attention to my elbows are they are rather dry. I have very sensitive skin and did not experience any soreness or redness with this body butter.
After a few hours, my skin still had a nice smoothness and the coconut scent was still evident though no where near as strong as it was on applying. I did notice that the butter did not keep my skin as moisturised for as long as my Soap and Glory butter does but it does a pretty good job.
For 99p you cannot really complain as this is a bargain! You do only need a small about for instant moisturisation and softness and your skin is left delicately fragranced with sweet coconuts.
Try this out...thanks for reading x
