Marc Jacobs Daisy Body Butter
Advantages: Smells nice, soothing, easy to use
Disadvantages: High price, smell doesnt last, sinks into skin very slowly
I'm not one for buying expensive perfumes or body butters, so when my partner gave me a Marc Jacobs Daisy gift set for Christmas last year, I have been using the set (very moderately) ever since.
The set at the time, for a perfume and a 140g body butter was priced at £45 in boots, which I thought was a horrendous price for a set of smellys! But looking back, it was quite a good price considering the individual prices of the items.
This velvet body butter by Marc Jacobs, is currently priced between £21 and £26 in most places for a 140g sized pot of lotion.
£26 at House of Fraser
£21.99 at Fragrance Direct
£25.50 at John Lewis online
I personally think the prices are ridiculous and I would never spend so much on a body butter when there are so many cheaper alternatives.
The pot, considering the price, is actually quite plain and boring. You'd think with a selling price of around £25, the pot would at least have a fancy design to it.
The pot is.. Well just a pot really! With a very simple white screw on lid with the Daisy Marc Jacobs logo printed and a floral design... Both are actually on the pot by a sticker, so the pot itself is just a cheap plain pot.
However the pot is sturdy, the lid fits really well and ive not had any problems with it leaking.
This Velvet body butter isn't the best ive ever used. In fact, I much prefer the cheaper body butters on range at the body shop!
This velvet body butter comes in quite a large tub of 140g which is a decent amount although I think it would be a good idea to have these on sale in smaller versions with smaller price tags.
The body butter has a very slight tint of sparkles to it in what looks like glitter to me. I love this aspect to the lotion and it looks great applied on tanned skin.
When I apply the body butter, I usually use it straight after a shower to sooth and keep my skin moisturised. The lotion I find isn't too thick which I like as some body butters can be very thick and hard to use. This lotion is easy to smooth over your skin and spreads easily, meaning only a small amount of the product is needed.
I find using the body butter on recently shaved legs helps to sooth and provide a barrier against my skin feeling sore or dry. Although I can't say this gives me a reason to pay £25 for a pot of body butter, as I get this same result when using cheaper products too!
This velvet body butter is very smooth, however I don't think it sinks into my skin very quickly and if you are wanting a product which is quick and easy and allows you to get dressed straight after applying, this one won't be the one for you.
Because of this, I don't use the body butter very much and it isn't one of my favourites to use.
The product also feels quite greasy and makes my skin feel a bit sticky for a while after; especially on my hands and legs.
As this came with my Daisy perfume, I did expect it to resemble the perfume in terms of its smell. I can say this does smell a lot like its partnered perfume, however I am disappointed with its lasting factor.
The lotion smells very floral which is what you'd expect from a body lotion named 'Daisy'. It also smells very fresh and I personally think the lotion smells creamy. I do like the smell and find it pleasant, however I think for the price of it, it should at least last!
I apply after a shower, once I have gotten dressed got myself ready and got out of the house, the lotion has eventually sank in and it is by this point the smell starts to go completely.
The price is ridiculously high! I would not recommend spending this much on a pot of body butter, go for something cheaper!
This lotion is...
* Soft, easy to apply
* Spreads easily
* Smells nice
* Has a lovely unique sparkle to it
However, it is...
* Very highly priced
* Doesn't sink into your skin very quickly
* The smell doesn't last
Thank you for reading, I also post on Ciao
