I Love Raspberry & Blackberry Body Butter
Advantages: Cheap, smells great, leaves skin feeling really smooth and soft!
Disadvantages: Smell doesn't last on the body for very long.
I recently became aware of the 'I love...' range when browsing my local Morrisons store and was immediately attracted to the bright colours of the items in this range.
The body butter was priced at £2 for 200ml and can also be found in Superdrug for the same price. Morrisons currently have the 'I love...' range on offer giving you three items for £5 which is a pretty good price in my opinion.
Being a huge fan of body butters, especially fruity smelling ones, I quickly started unscrewing lids and having a sniff when I saw these on the shelf. Other scents available in this range are 'mango & papaya', 'coconut & cream' and 'strawberries & milkshake'. I opted for the raspberry & blackberry scent as I loved the smell and felt it was a little different from my usual choice in this sort of product.
The body butter comes in a clear plastic circular tub which allows you to see the bright coloured pink/red butter with a black screw on lid. The lid contains a dark red sticker containing the 'I love...' logo and a product description with a few hearts dotted around for added decoration, very feminine looking. There is another sticker on the back containing an ingredients list, application instructions and warning you not to eat it. The packaging also mentions that this product is not tested on animals.
The butter itself is quite thick but rubs in easily and I find my skin absorbs it effortlessly. I tend to apply this to my entire body after showering and a generous helping is required. I pretty much just dip my fingers into the tub, scoop up as much as I can manage and apply it to my body. I find one scoop suffices for each leg and foot, another for both arms and another two for my torso. I use this product about once a week and have had it for a good couple months, I've probably still got about half the tub left so if you're using other body butters as well it's fairly long lasting. I haven't applied this to my face as I have rather sensitive skin on my face and neck and am not sure if it would be safe for me to do so. I haven't experienced any problems in regards to the rest of my body though.
The smell is lovely, very fruity and sweet and you can definitely detect the raspberry scent. It's quite a mild smell when in the tub but becomes a lot stronger when you start to apply it to your body although I don't find that it ever becomes overbearing.
The scent doesn't last on your body for very long, probably about an hour but the effects in terms of softness of the skin last much longer.
This body butter has given me really nice smooth skin which has still felt beautiful to touch the following morning. I sometimes find these products can leave my skin feeling a little greasy but, thankfully, this doesn't appear to be the case with this product. The butter does make me skin feel a lot softer and adds a shine but it never feels greasy or to 'slippery'. (I often sit with one leg crossed over the other and I hate it my top leg slides off the bottom one due to applying these body butters)!
This scent is also available in lip balm, shower gel and shower crème so you can experience a truly fruity pamper using this range of products. I would definitely recommend this product, my only fault with it is the short lasting smell but other than that it's perfect!
Summary: A really nice product that gives skin a great feel and look.
