Marks and spencer rosehip body butter
I like body butters for moisturising my skin after a bath and especially after having been on holiday when my skin does tend to feel particularly dry and in need of moisture.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Apparently Rosehip oil has been used for centuries for its moisturising properties and because it is rich in essential fatty acids, it will nourish and repair the skin. The body butter also contains conditioning vitamin E to help leave skin feeling soft and protected. All good stuff if it does indeed deliver.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The body butter comes in a tub which I always find a bonus because it means I can get to the very bottom of the tub and not waste any of the product; no reliance on it having an effective dispenser.
When I unscrew the lid, I find that the body butter is a very pale pink in colour and rather than looking like a cream it almost looks like a mousse which has solidified slightly. However when I dip my finger into the stuff it is much creamier and softer than I first thought but also lighter than a thick cream would be.
I did expect it to be quite a scented body butter but the smell is barely discernible. What smell there is is a bit fruity but its nothing overpowering and certainly nothing which would interact and change the smell of any perfume which might be applied
USING THE PRODUCT...
The body butter should be massaged into clean dry skin. Because it is quite mousse like a little bit goes a long way so it does last for ages. However I find that it's not as easily absorbed into the skin as a cream would be. It kind of sits on my skin and takes lots of massaging to get it right into the skin. Because of this I don't know that it is as moisturising as a really creamy body butter woud be.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
As the name suggests this one is from Marks and Spencer and is available online at www.marksandspencer.com and also in stores. It costs £5 for a 200ml tub of the stuff so not an overly expensive body butter.
A decent enough body butter but not the best I have found. It takes a while to rub in and whilst the lack of smell means I can use it before applying perfume, I don't really feel very moisturised.
Not bad but not great.
