I bought this brazil nut body butter from The Body Shop a while ago when there was a buy one get one free offer.
~ Price and availability ~
The brazil nut body butter is currently available from The Body Shop for £6.50 for 200ml, but it is usually £13.00.
It is currently unavailable on the website, but is usually available to order from their website, www.thebodyshop.co.uk.
~ Packaging ~
It comes in a large, round tub, which is made from brown plastic. It has a screw off lid which has a sticker on the top with a picture of some brazil nuts and The Body Shop’s logo on it.
~ In Use ~
The body butter is an off-white colour and it looks and feels really thick.
You don’t have to use much of this body butter to get a good coverage. I have had my tub for a while and it looks as though I have only used it once or twice as there is still so much left. You have to be careful not to apply too much because if you don’t rub it in to your skin fully then it feels sticky and uncomfortable on your skin.
The body butter does not have a very strong scent, like some of the other body butters from The Body Shop do. It has a clean, papery scent. It doesn’t strike me as having a very nutty scent, but the scent is rather subtle so you have to sniff at your skin to notice it.
I’m not majorly keen on the scent of this one. I like it, but it is nothing special at all and I’m not sure why I chose this one over their other body butters. I usually much prefer to use fruity scented products.
I feel like this is a lot thicker than some of The Body Shop’s other body butters and it feels a lot thicker. It makes my skin feel soft and moisturised, but I find that this doesn’t sink into my skin as easily as other body butters I have used. I wouldn’t describe it as sticky on my skin, but I can feel that I have a product on my skin when I use this body butter.
This is my least favourite body butter that I have tried by The Body Shop. It is nothing special and I am glad that I didn’t pay the full £13.00 for it.
It is quite good for hydration, but I can feel the product on my skin and it takes longer than other body butters to sink in to my skin, which is rather irritating.
I have another brazil nut body butter from the Boots Extracts range, which I like more than The Body Shop’s offering because it has a sweet, creamy scent and it is a lot lighter and more user friendly.
I would not recommend this body butter by The Body Shop and would not buy it again. I have used cheaper body butters that I have found more pleasant to use.

This is the first time I have bought this Brazil Nut Body Butter. I am slowly working my way through all the different varieties to see which are my favourites.
This comes in the standard body butter round tub and to blend in with the nut contents the tub is a mid colour brown.
The cream inside is very thick and creamy - almost solid and you can turn the tub upside down without it moving.
The colour of the cream is a light beige of pale toffee colour.
The toffee colour comes to mind because the smell is lovely and sweet - it reminds me of popcorn or toffee or caramel and honey - not really a nutty aroma but one I really like anyway.
Part of the contents are shea and cocoa butter, peach kernel oil and sesame seed oil.
The cream smells very rich and is great for this time of year, though I am not so sure I would appreciate it in the hot summer months as it has a strong and heavy sort of quality about it.
One thing I love about the smell is that it is very close to another Body Shop item I was given last Christmas. This was a scrub that was called Vanilla Bliss - not one that should really be smelling the same as the Brazil Nut but to me they are very similar.
As this is the first one I have bought I cannot comment on whether it is a new formulation but I noticed that someone on the Body Shop site was bemoaning the change to the product and how it is much sweeter and sicklier now, so if this used to be your favourite be warned - it might smell different now.
I personally do not find the smell annoying or too sickly and I usually tend to use the product at night on my hands and feet and quite like the smell.
The body butter itself is thick, rich and creamy and like all the other body butters does a great job of moisturising dry skin - my hands and feet always feel lovely and soft by the morning as it soaks in through the night.
I will also sometimes use this as good strong hand cream during the winter months as it keeps my hands nicely protected when out in the bad weather. Just as good as having separate tubes of various hand creams - I find these body butters work really well on my hands and you also get the nice aroma wafting up to you every now and again - this is why its good to purchase one with a fragrance you like.
The Brazil nut items also comes in other products such as soap, eau de toilette, oils and scrubs.
Do not forget to keep the lovely strong tubs once you have used all your butter as the labels come off easily and once washed can be used for many little items and are quite colourful when you get a collection of different colours.
4 stars. Very expensive at full price.

A while ago I purchased the Brazil Nut Body Butter from The Body Shop. I've tried several varieties of body butter and enjoyed using them, so I was looking forward to trying this one out.
This body butter contains Community Fair Trade Brazil nut oil, which is good for dry skin. The oil comes from the Candela co-operative in Peru. Trade has helped to protect 3,000 hectares of rainforest in the Madre de Dios region. The sustainable harvesting of Brazil nuts helps to support indigenous species that depend on the Brazil nut tree, such as the orchid bee. To find out more, visit The Body Shop's Community Fair Trade section. The product also contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and cocoa butter.
The Brazil Nut Body Butter comes in a brown tub with a label containing pictures of Brazil nuts. The butter is designed for dry skin and is designed to be quickly absorbed and leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Inside the tub, the body butter is light brown in colour and has a delicious nutty scent, almost good enough to eat (but I didn't).
I tend to use a normal body lotion in the morning, and save more intensive body butters for the evening, after a bath or my post-gym shower. I find the Brazil nut body butter to be very effective at moisturising my skin. Not too much is needed at any one time, and it goes on easily and sinks in well. The body butter has the texture of thick butter and feels pleasant and cooling on the skin. Most importantly, it keeps my dry skin hydrated right up until the next morning. It smells lovely on my skin too, and the nutty scent lasts ages.
At full price the body butter costs £12.50 for a 200ml tub, but The Body Shop often have special offers on so it will be possible to obtain it more cheaply if you have a little patience. I will definitely buy this again as it is really good at moisturising my skin and smells lovely - a luxurious treat.
I do like my Body Shop body butters, but I only buy them when they're on sale as I refuse to pay the full price of £12.50 for them! Quite often, though, my fave fragrances - which tend to be fruity ones - aren't always on offer so this means I end up trying out new ones - which can be good or bad of course!
As with all body butters, this promises to moisturise and smooth skin. It comes in a large 200ml tub with screwtop lid.
Nutty and subtle
Inside the tub, the cream is rich and thick, and a nice pale beigey colour. I was quite surprised by the scent of this as I don't generally like nutty fragrances but this to me is really subtle - it is more like a shea butter I think. Although it is pleasant enough and it isn't strong enough to be offensive, I find it a little bit boring compared to the other fruity fragrances that I love! However I know many people find the fruit-scented body butters to be too sweet, so this may be a great option.
Aside from the scent, this really does moisturise the skin. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth and this feeling lasts all day which is fantastic and I think helps justify the high price. One thing though is that the smell doesn't linger for long - this doesn't bother me as I don't get very excited about the scent anyway, but I do find that the fruity scents do tend to linger on the skin. However I guess this is because the fruit scents tend to be stronger.
In summary ...
Overall there is nothing really wrong with this body butter, but I wouldn't purchase it again. As a moisturiser it's excellent but the smell is a bit boring and not a patch on the other body butters in my opinion! But for anyone who is after something a little more subtle, then this may be a good option.
I love Body shop products, and this was the first in the Body Butter range I tried. I have now tried about 4 different body butters, and the Brazil Nut one is definately my favourite.
It comes in a 200ml screw top tub, which is brown in colour with a photo of brazil nuts on the lid. It normally costs £12.50, which is expensive for a moisturiser, but in my opinion, worth it.
The butter itself is quite different to a liquid moisturiser, it's genuinely a 'butter', and has a semi-solid consistency that softens when it comes into contact with your skin. It is pale creamy/beige in colour.
The smell is glorious - rich, nutty, semi-sweet, chocolately, buttery, you could almost eat it - it smells so good!! I found the smell quite addictive!!
It has an incredibly smooth, silky feeling, and glides over the skin with ease. There's no mess involved unlike liquid moisturisers, and you are able to control how much you use due to the butter-like consistency. I found it had a soothing, warming effect on the skin, and wasn't greasy like some moisturisers can be. It worked in the skin well, absorbed fairly quickly, and left a non-greasy, silky smooth feeling to the skin. The first time I applied this, was at night before going to bed, and when I woke up in the morning my skin still felt super-soft and silky, after using it only once.
As I suffer from dry skin, I have tried a huge range of body lotions, creams, etc, this one, however, beats them all hands down. It has a rich, luxurious feel, amazing smell and most importantly, leaves even dry skin, soft, silky, perfectly moisturised, even 24 hours after applying. This product really is must-have, and worth every penny!
To be perfectly honest, I cannot recall the number of times I promised myself not to go to the Body Shop when they have sale and I broke the promise. I just cannot stop myself from buying their new body butters and shower gels as they smell so good (and are half price!). As usual, I just couldn't resist the temptation of buying Brazil Nut Body Butter.
Appearance, scent and texture
It comes in a thick round dark brown plastic container with a lid at the top. There is a picture of brazil nuts on the lid which in my opinion makes it more encouraging. Also, the container is very practical as due to its thickness it doesn't break and it is easy to see how much of the butter there's left.
In my opinion, the scent isn't as intense compared to other BS butters though it may be simply because I got used to their strong smells. Brazil Nut smells lovely; you can sense nuts and cocoa. For me, it just smells of summer in some very hot place - perfect for winter blues. I must say that I don't feel like eating it (which is the case with other BS products) but I still love the scent!
Its texture is not different to other Body Butters offered by the Body Shop; it is fairly thick but creamy and smooth. A simple pleasure to use.
Does it work?
The producer promises that this body butter will help to smoothen, soothen and prevent dryness as it contains brazil nut, shea butter and cocoa butter. It won't disappoint you. Even though I have normal skin that tends to get dry in places like elbows and legs after shaving, it dealt with it quickly. I'm sure it will work for dry skin. The skin also absorbs it quite quickly so it won't stick to your clothes
It is a lovely body butter that smells fabulous and works very well. Even though the standard price is quite high (£12.50), you can get it for half price on sale. Also, Body Shop doesn't test their cosmetics on animals.
I must be a big fan of Body Shop Body Butters as I currently have about 15 tubs in my bathroom. Generally speaking, I don't believe that they are the best body butters around (I really love Korres, they make my favourites) - however they're very good, very effective, easy to get hold of, don't expire (Korres Body Butters do!) and The Body Shop often do great sales and offers so I end up stockpiling. I can't justify the retail price of £12.50 - I don't believe that I've ever paid that much, usually I wait until they are at least half price - a bargain. This makes them great everyday body butters and if I have been neglecting my skin then I'll use them twice a day.
Even though The Body Shop sells a wide range of different body butters, they can vary quite a bit in terms of texture and scent. I've generally come to realise that I should avoid the fruity ones, as they generally smell too sweet and artificial, I'm not a fan of foodie scents in body creams which, as I understand, a lot of people are. For this reason I wasn't sure how much I would like the Brazil Nut but it's turned into one of my favourites. I wish I had bought more before they had decided to discontinue this!
Body Butter Brazil Nut obviously has a foodie fragrance, but surprisingly I'm liking it! It can smell a little strong and artificial but there is quite a lot of depth to it and the smell doesn't last as long as the other fragrances which in my opinion is a good thing - even though I like it, it's not something I want to smell like all day long. With other Body Butters the smell can transfere onto my clothes which I hate. The scent is like a slightly sweet nutty toffee - that's the best way that I can describe it.
The cream is a light buttery beige and comes in a rich chocolate brown tub. This is one of the thicker and richer creams, intended for dry skin. It's not as moisturising as the Shea Butter one but it's not far off. Despite being thick, it absorbs better than some of the other butters, there is no stickiness and it doesn't leave a greasy residue, just a light sheen which helps the overall appearance of my skin. It moisturises into my hands too so I don't need to wipe them after applying. The texture is creamy but it spreads well.
When I apply it I rub it in well in circular motions, the heat also helps it melt into the skin better.
Not only has it made my skin look and feel better during the winter months, it helps to soothe my skin from itching. If I am going to self-tan and my skin is very dry, I will apply this twice a day for 7 days before self-tanning and I get no streaks.
Brazil Nut Body Butter comes in a tub of 200g/6.9oz. The lid is very easy to remove even with slippery hands. I've never had any problems with them breaking and, if you like me, you decide to buy in bulk they are easy to stack and look great when you do. My only complaint with the packaging is that the tub can make it unsanitary but I try to use it only after I shower.
As this cream is thicker, has a strong fragrance and the fact that it has now been discontinued, it seems, I don't use this regularly as a basic body moisturiser - I only use it when my skin needs some intense help and it always delivers and I love being reminded of how gorgeous this smells instead of becoming sick of it.
This product is also ethical and is sourced through their fair trade program.
Im going to start by saying that I cannot believe I havent already reviewed this product as it is one of the few things I am never without a tub of in my bathroom. I absolutely LOVE this body butter and even though Ive tried out loads of different scents of this butter from The Bodyshop I will always return to this one because it really does smell good enough to eat and it does wonders for my skin's appearance and makes my skin soft & smooth. Nothing even comes close to how great this product is in my opinion. Luckily my mom's just as big a fan of this body butter as I am so if ever I run out theres always her tub in the bathroom as well. I guess when it comes to this product Im a pretty lucky girl as its always readily available to me.

This product comes in a rather large screw top brown tub. The top of the tub is covered with brazil nuts and is very similar to other body butter tub designs from this range. The design is very simple but looks really upmarket and posh so I really like this design. The only porblem I have is that while the top is very easy to get off when your hands have cream all over them it can be difficult to put the lid back on. But I have that problem with most body butter tubs so I guess it's not a major issue.
The smell of this is absolutely gorgeous. Im not entirely sure what brazil nuts actually smell like but this certianly has a nutty scent to it. I would say that this smells a lot like Cocoa Butter & Shea Butter rather than nuts but it does have that really subtle nutty afterscent (?) the smell is divine. Good enough to eat, but I dont recommend that you do lol as I doubt it tastes very nice!
The butter itself has a really thick, creamy texture and because of the added thickness you may need to spend a little bit longer rubbing it in as otherwise you may be left with that greasy layer over your skin and trust me no-one wants that! As this is a little bit thicker than ordinary moisturisers it does take a bit longer to sink into your skin, I usually apply it right before bed so when i wake up my skin is proper soft and smooth. Now a lot of people will assume that because this is so thick that it will leave your skin feeling a bit clogged and greasy but it doesnt at all. I will say a little goes a really long way with this so dont be scooping out shed loads. You dont need to!
This really does do wonders for dry skin. As far back as I can remember I have always had rough, dry skin on my elbows and my knees and after the very first time I applied this I could feel it softening my elbows and knees straight away! It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, soft & smooth and it leaves a really subtle scent on your skin for ages afterwards which is just an added bonus for me. For people that have sensitive skin I definately recommend this as I have never had any kind of reaction to this even though it is fragranced, trust me you will wonder how you ever lived without it!
If you havent tried this scent out already I highly recommend it as I reckon it has to be the nicest smelling Bodyshop Butter I have tried yet. It works wonders and it smells gorgeous. Its a winner all around!
Thanks For Reading

This is the nicest body butter I have tried from the Body Shop and they have stopped doing it! I am therefore writing this in the hope that someone with influence might read it and they'll be persuaded to make it again.
Having said that if they hadn't stopped making it I would never have tried it because I can only afford it at end of line reduction prices. I just wish I'd bought more than one tub.
Generally I think the Body Shop body butters are nice but not nice enough to justify the price - they cost £12.50 for a big tub (200ml) and you can get products of a similar quality far cheaper elsewhere. This one however was reduced to £4 in the sale recently and is definitely worth that.
As with all of their body butters this one is packaged in a large round plastic tub which has quite a pleasing design. Nice big lid so not at all fiddly and it looks like a quality product. The tub is very dark brown - I was going to say chocolate brown but I guess that should be brazil nut brown - with a picture of some brazil nuts on the top along with the Body Shop logo and an explanation of what it is.
On the pack you are told that the product contains community trade brazil nut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter. Although I still think their products are overpriced I do agree with the Body Shop's values and feel it is worth paying a little extra for the reassurance. It's nice to know that they use responsibly sourced natural ingredients and do not test on animals.
The body butter is for dry skin though I find it's lovely on skin that isn't dry too! I think this one has the best consistency of any that I've tried. I find a lot of their butters are almost solid and take a lot of effort to work into the skin while a lot of them are just really oily and don't really absorb into the skin. This one is actually quite a buttery consistency - nice and thick but sort of melts into the skin. It's just oily enough to feel like a real luxury and beautifully thick and moisturising.
It leaves the skin very soft and while it is absorbed very quickly it does leave a sort of layer on the skin for a long time afterwards. Not in a bad way though - just feels like it's continuing to look after your skin and it's not at all sticky or greasy.
The smell is possibly my favourite thing about this stuff - it is amazing! I'm not even much of a fan of brazil nuts which is probably why I never looked at it before it was cheap. The smell is slightly nutty but more like cocoa butter with a hint of caramel, it's slightly sweet but not sickly. The smell also stays put on the skin for a long time without being overpowering and you won't be walking around smelling like caramel - just sweet and delicious! It's so good I find myself just opening the tub for a sniff even when I don't want to use any.
The ingredients list is fairly short and the second item after water is brazil nut oil. Also contains shea butter, cocoa butter and caramel - only the last ingredient but would explain the lovely smell.
This is a wonderfully luxurious product that makes my skin feel great and makes me feel like I'm treating myself - even by just smelling it.
I give it a rating of four stars - loses one for being overpriced at full price and for not existing anymore.
So I am begging the Body Shop to please please please bring it back and I might even be persuaded to fork out £12.50 for it......:)
Body shop is a well known skincare brand in the UK. You can buy theres product in store, online and also at parties which this company holds where a representitive will come to your home and show you all the products. The brazil nut body butter is one of my favourite products that the body shop does. If you like this i also reccommend the brazil nut body scrub.
This product is priced very reasonably with it costing £2 for 50g and £5 for 200g. A little bit goes a long way so you wont find yourself having to buy it all the time.
Bodyshop never test on animals and always use fair trade ingredients where possible.
It smells good enought to eat. It has a hint of cocoa and butter so smell very sweet.
It soaks into your skin leaving it feeling very soft and hydrated and never irritates.
The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter
Description: Brand: The Body Shop / Type: Body Butter / An intensive, creamy all-over body moisturiser.
Anyone reading my reviews will probably already know that I am a bit of an obsessive about beauty products and can frequently be found buying or trying new products. I have various favourites, usually from Lush or Soap and Glory but the scent of the Brazil nut range from the body shop is one of my all time favourites and in my opinion, nothing else comes close. I also recommend that you try their Brazil nut body scrub which is excellent.
I am quite lucky because there is a Body Shop outlet in the Royal Quays outlet near where I live (Tyne and Wear). This is excellent because it allows me to save money on the products that I buy (and try new ones of course!) as they sell them cheaper than the high street stores.
The Body Shop never test on animals and also use Fair Trade ingredients where possible.
The body butter comes in plastic tubs with screw off lids. The tubs are available in two sizes, 50g or 200g. The 50g tub will cost you £2 and the 200g one will cost £5 so it isn't too expensive. The Body Shop website tells us the following information;
The Body Shop sources Community Trade brazil nut oil from Peru, sourced through our unique fair trade programme which ensures all producers and workers received a fair deal. Brazil nuts are harvested from wild populations of trees and complex ecological interaction must occur between the brazil tree insects and animals to ensure nuts are produced. The trade in Brazil nuts protects the forest itself; the economic value given to the forest helps to ensures their future"
So you know that when you are purchasing this product, it has been made and sold in an ethical way which is important.
It is difficult to describe the fragrance of this body butter because it is quite distinctive to Brazil nut! It has hints of cocoa and shea butter and a smell which is a little similar to candyfloss or burnt sugar. It is very sweet and I absolutely love it. It is quite a strong fragrance so might now be best for someone who prefers something more subtle.
Ingredients are as follows;
Aqua (Water) (Solvent/Diluent), Bertholletia excelsa (Brazil Nut Oil) (Emollient), Cyclomethicone (Emollient), Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter) (Emollient), Theobroma cacao (Cocoa Butter) (Emollient), Glycerin (Humectant), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (Surfactant), Cetearyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Lanolin Alcohol (Stabiliser/Emollient), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Methylparaben (Preservative), Propylparaben (Preservative), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Parfum (Fragrance), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Caramel (Colour).
I really love this cream, it is quite thick and a little goes a long way so you don't need to apply heaps. It is quickly absorbed and leaves skin feeling hydrated and deliciously fragranced. It never irritates my skin either, and really does leave it feeling soft and moisturised. If you haven't tried this one already then you definitely should!
Well, what can I say? This product, like many of the Body Shop butters smells beautiful, goes on smoothly and leaves the skin feeling luxuriously soft and cared for. The product lasts for ages as you don't need to use much - as they say a little goes a long way. The price is what you would expect to pay for quality body butter and the product comes in an attractive tub which is easy to open and easy to store. I was initially given mine as a gift and I'm really hooked. You can get this body butter either in store (where if you use your body shop card you can get money off) or you can usually find it online at bargain proces. I have found that if I use this product after shaving my legs in the summer that they have a lovely , glowing shine to them!
This is a really lovely and rich moisturiser. It comes in a round tub which is about the size of a womans hand with a screw lid. Inside the tub is filled to the top with very creamy and beautifully scented moisturiser.
The brazil nut butter smells very strongly of nuts and is vert pleasant. Even when the moisturiser has been rubbed in it leaves a lovely faint aroma of nuts but is not too over powering.
It is a very thick cream so a little does go a long way and you do need to rub it in properly or it will remain on the surface of your skin. The thickness of the cream means it is excellent for rough areas like feet, knees and elbows which may need extra moisturising but it does also work well on normal skin areas too.
Like other Body Shop products it is made from natural ingredients and has not been tested on animals.
Price: £12.20 for 200ml
From: The Body Shop
For: Intensive moisturisation of dry skins
The packaging is nice to look at and has that body Shop high quality feel about it. It's a brown plastic tub with a screw off lid. The lid is very easy to open but at the same time fastens nice and tightly. I would prefer a tube or bottle for hygiene reasons but because of the consistency of the butter a tub really is the best option.
It's a really thick, rich, buttery texture and it has a lovely sweet nutty candy type scent. It's not a scent I'd ever thought of trying as I just thought it would smell like brazil nuts, which didn't really appeal to me, but the scent is actually very nice, and the nuttiness is only subtle.
It feels really smooth and creamy, and because of how rich is it it does take quite a while to sink in, but once it does there is no greasy residue or stickiness left behind.
It leaves the skin feeling really soothed and any really dry areas seem smoothed out and moisturised and become less noticeable. It moisturises really well without giving that horrible heavy, clogged feeling that some rich creams and butters can.
Over time it has a dramatic effect on dry skin, and the dry patches I had on my knees had completely disappeared within 2 weeks of starting to use it.
All in all this is a brilliant body butter for dry skin.
Thumbs up from me.
The body shop Brazil Nut Body Butter is a great all-over body moisturiser. I first tried it when i was given it as a gift and didnt think much of it, because i didnt used to bother moisturising but after trying this i havent stopped. Ive tried most of them but this and coconut are my favourite! This creamy moisturiser leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and conditions any dry skin. Its absorbs really quickly and doesnt go sticky like some moisturisers so you dont have to wait for ages before clothing, and leaves a lovely shine, without looking greasy. It has a lovely creamy texture and feels lovely on your fingers.
At £12.20 for 200ml people may be put off, but a little bit of this really does go a long way and it last ages, well worth the money. I tend to buy it when its on offer, sometimes half price but wouldnt mind pay full if i ran out.
You can purchase Brazillian nut body butter from all body shop stores and online.
