Advantages: Nice packaging, a little goes a very long way indeed
Disadvantages: It has a very, very light scent and is very difficult to get hold of unless you want the trial size
For Christmas I was a very lucky woman. I got completely spolit for my step dad (as usual) and he bought me a great big case full of Ted Baker stuff, all the stuff in it was full sizes too! Within the set I had (and still do have some left) was this 'Butterfly' Body Lotion. I call it that because it hasn't got a name on it as to what it is. I havent seen this available to purchase in the 200ml size that I have but have seen it in Boots in a trial size (50ml) for about £1.99 a tube of it and so if interested then my advice is to Google it. I have and I can only find the trial sizes in small gift sets and the correct name for this is if you are Ted Baker Butterfly Wings if you do want to try it.
Like I have already said I have the 200ml tube (the size is on the front of it) and the tube is a light baby pink colour with a bronzy coloured flip top lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole. On the front of the tube there are grey and white pictures of butterflies on it along with one small dark pink one and then in bronze writing we are told that it is indeed Ted Baker London Body Lotion. On the back of the tube other information listed includes being told a bit a about the product and how to use it (along with a top tip being given), we are told to use the product up within 24 months of opening it and that it is made in China (not London then Ted? lol) and contact details for the manufacturer are given.
The Lotion Itself:
The lotion is quite thick though easy enough to squeeze out of the tube and is white in colour. On contact with the skin this blends in very easily and has a very light scent of red berry fruits to it in the main along with a hint of patchouli and although bergamot and tuberose are said to be also in this scent wise, to be honest I can't smell those scents at all.
When on the skin it does leave a sheen to this skin but it doesn't feel oily. It does give a very gentle moisturising feeling to the skin all day long (or all night lol) and the scent isn't in your face......in fact I can only smell this if I sniff at myself really hard when its on.
This is a nice, gentle easy to use moisturiser that for me is nice for everyday use opposed to a lotion that is going to be helpful for very dry skin conditions. It doesn't agitate my skin when on, doesn't inteferere fragrance wise with any other scents that I am using and is a nice sweet and subtle fragrance itself though I would prefer it to be a bit more strong really.
I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this one myself but it is nice used in conjunction with other Ted Baker products from this range, which I do!
