As you know from reading my reviews I love beauty items and even more so when I haven't tried them before. I'm a big fan of moisturising; I moisturise after a shower or bath also first thing on the morning and pretty much last thing at night if I'm not too sleepy!
I Love Coconut and Cream Body Butter:
'Generously scoop up with your fingertips and massage all over the body to leave skin gorgeously nourished, silky soft & beautifully fragranced'
I had a lot of goodies for my birthday this being one of them. The I Love range is very similar to the likes of Treacle Moon and my beloved NSpa, and having tried this version in other brands and liked it I was hoping this was going to be as good. I Love range also have a catchy tag line on their products -
'Escape to paradise; an exotic explosion as my tropical cocktail of sweet coconut and velvety cream aromas leave you drifting away to your very own idyllic beach hideaway!'
Just like the other brands they all seem to have their own tag line, wonder which brand started it first? Anyway I have been using this body butter for a little bit now and in my personal opinion the other brands seem to be far superior to this one.
Opening the lid and smelling this product it does smell absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't wait to cover myself in this creamy goodness. The white cream does feel air whipped, light and soft on skin however the consistency is a little lighter than most body butters I have used in the past.
As rubbing the cream over my skin it absorbs fast and just melts into my skin without leaving a greasy feeling as some like this have done so. Once moisturised my skin felt wonderful and extremely soft; however these effects are very much short lived and within an hour or so my skin was back to feeling its normal self.
When it came to the aroma of this product to start with I was just in love with the smell but after it has sat on your skin it soon starts to fade and fast! The fragrance also starts to change and well I found it to smell a little like coconut but mixed with Johnson's baby oil; which isn't a bad fragrance just really not the one I wanted or what is advertised on the tub.
Again just like that fresh moisturised feeling the aroma fads fast too. Within the hour the fragrance seems pretty much non existence. Which was a major let down for me as I love the scent to linger on my skin for hours.
The packaging is neat and basic in black and white; this body butter comes in a round tub with a screw off lid. I personally like creams I can squeeze out which is less mess when you have long nails like mine. As with a tub you have to scoop the cream out with then gets under my nails! Once empty the plastic tub and lid can be recycled.
The I Love Range:
This range comes in many different flavour fragrances,
Strawberries & Milkshake
Mango & Papaya
Raspberry & Blackberry
Vanilla & Ice Cream
Chocolate & Oranges
Lemons & Limes
You can buy matching items also - Shower Gel/Bubble Bath, Hand cream, Lip Gloss, Lip Balm, Soap, Shower Smoothie and Body lotion.
Price and Availability:
For the 200ml tub it will cost £1.99 from Superdrug which is rather good value for money. I have also spotted this brand in Bargain Madness. One good thing about Superdrug is they seem to have an offer on products like this, right now its two for £2.99
If I'm honest once this is empty I don't think I would purchase this again and pretty much glad this was a gift! The effects at first are pleasant but sadly it soon fades which is a huge let down, personally I think I shall be sticking with NSpa.
Three out of five stars from me
