I love the Nspa range and was given an Nspa gift set for my birthday, this contained the raspberry body butter.
The body butter comes in a clear plastic tub with a twist style lid, the lid is a little annoying as it gets stuck when it gets near to the top of the tub. The packaging is very simple with a label on the lid with a small amount of text about the product and an image of a raspberry. The clear tub is great as it allows you to see how much you have left. I think it would be better if this came in a squeezy tube, I don’t really like tubs as I always end up taking more than I need out of the pot and I always end up with clumps of body butter under my nails.
The body butter claims to contain real fruit and natural goodness for the skin.
The body butter smells lovely, like very sweet raspberries. The butter is pink in colour and is very thick in consistency, as it is quite thick it does take some effort to fully rub it in, but once rubbed in it is absorbed very quickly. This product last for a surprising amount of time, one small tub has lasted me well over a month. The scent lingers on skin for quite a while and isn’t overpowering like some of the other Nspa products.
It feels like a luxury item and quickly smooth’s out dry skin. It doesn’t leave any greasy or sticky residue behind like some body butters. I will be purchasing again, it’s reasonably priced and does exactly what I want it to do.
I have to admit i love the nspa range. I look at them as a much cheaper version of philosophy so when they have an offer on or bring out new products i quite frequently buy the whole range.
The packaging is standard for this type of product,i think that its easy to open and not to fiddly. Also because of the style of tub you don't waste any of it which is nice unlike other products where you have to either cut them open or waste x amount of applications.
Smell-I love the smell of this. It has a nice sweet raspberry smell,i don't think its overpowering and it smells natural.
I do think that this is thicker than other body butters but this is what i look for in a body butter. I also like how the product is paraben free and with the product not being too strong it is okay to use with my psoriasis.
**Other items in the range**
With scented items i like products to match and you can also get the body mist, shower scrub and bath gel to match.
**Where to buy/price**
Although nspa do have a website this product can only be purchased from Asda. If your local store doesn't have it then then you wont be able to get it from asda.com as stock comes from your local store.However i have seen this on eBay(higher prices) and Tesco have their version called treacle moon.
Currently this costs £3 for the 200ml which is more than i paid but i still think that its a good price
I am a body butter/lotion/cream junkie! I have that many I use, as it is summer time I have started using fruitier ones again. One of my favourite brands is NSpa they have some amazing fragrances.

Just coming to the end of my second tub which I guess is what prompt me to review it. This body butter has certainly moved into my favourites. I really like the NSpa range and this is definitely one of there better fragrances among their others.
I have been a long term user of the NSpa products I loved their fruit range which seems to have disappeared to only a couple of items. Looks like they have updated it which is fine but the last ones looked so much more fun and I loved the little quotes they used to add to their products.
This beauty of a body butter I personally think smells adorable, kind of like raspberry chewits sweets! The consistency is rather thick but I don't find it heavy on my skin at all. It's a pale pink colour very girly and really does smell rather edible!
Smoothing this over my skin it feels super soft like I'm rubbing a silk sheet over my skin. It is rather thick body butter but it soon melts into the skin within seconds. I don't find it to weigh down my skin; I don't have any horrid greasy feeling, my skin still feels breathable once applied.
One of the main reasons I use body butters is to keep my skin moisturised, as it tends to go dry quickly and more so during the summer time. Another reason is for the fragrance, and this is brilliant as I can still detect this hours after I have applied!
These body butters come in tubs, again I would prefer a squeeze tube and I always end up getting the moisturiser down my nails when scooping out of tubs. However a small set back for a wonderful product.
One of these tubs will last me another one month, sometimes longer just depends how many times I keep using it! For me I think this is great for any age range but I guess for suits to teens, early twenties to late thirties.
Price and Availability:
At only £3.00 per tub I find this excellent value for money, you can often find them on offer too at two for £4.00. NSpa is currently only available at Asda or via the NSpa web site but for some reason they are dearer.
For me I will be purchasing another tub you also can get like I have the matching products, the body wash and body spray! Certainly keeping you smelling sweetie fresh all day long, great for me working in a hot hotel.
Four out of five stars from me
