      Body butter from The Body Shop

      I've been using lots of Passion Fruit products recently, including this Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter. I really like Body Shop body butters as they are very moisturising, smell lovely and are made of ethically traded ingredients.

      The Passion Fruit Body Butter comes in a purple plastic tub with a picture of passionfruit halves on the lid. It doesn't seem to be available as part of the regular Body Shop range, but it often comes out during sale time, and I was able to get a bargain - a 200ml tub for £3 instead of £12.50! The butter is designed for normal to dry skin.

      This butter has a very thick texture and is a pale purple colour. It has a lovely refreshing fruity scent, similar to the body scrub, and though it is recognisably similar to the passion fruit products in the Boots Natural Collection range, it smells much more natural than they do. The butter contains shea butter, passion fruit seed and melon seed oil, which help to moisturise the skin.

      I prefer to use a lighter body lotion during the day, saving body butter for my post-gym shower or evening bath. I scoop some butter out of the tub - a little goes a fairly long way - and apply it to my skin. I find that it can take a few minutes to sink in, so I normally hold off on putting my pyjamas on until it has sunk in. It doesn't feel sticky or claggy, however, but cooling and soothing on the skin.

      The lovely scent lasts on my skin for several hours and the moisturising effect lasts a good while too - when I wake up in the morning my skin feels moisturised.too, and hasn't been irritated in the slightest.

      I highly recommend this body butter, especially at sale price which is an absolute bargain. It smells delicious and is highly effective.

        one of the nicest body butters on the market

        Since the age of about 13, I remember these products being constantly hyped. This body butter was the first that I purchased and it is the only scent I've owned since first trying it out - it smells too good to buy any other!

        The Body Shop sells these tubs in 200ml and a smaller 100ml. The larger tubs cost £12 but at the end of seasons (especially after Christmas) you can always find some on offer for only £5 which is an amazing price - my stocking up time! I think £12 is a reasonable price because they are really good products, but I can't always justify spending it which is my main reason for holding back.

        Now the scent is the main reason I chose this over any other which was on the shelves. Don't get me wrong, the others smell amazing too but the passionfruit is by far the strongest scent and it lingers on your skin for quite a while afterwards which is a bonus - nobody enjoys a fading smell! I do quite like the others such as papaya, coconut, brazil nut and strawberry but I'm waiting for the next sale before splurging!

        It might just be a personal thing, but these butters are incredibly thick. I definitely wouldn't use them anywhere near my face or if you've got blemishes on your back/chest I'd avoid there too because I fear that it would clog up pores - for other areas its perfect. It is a really good consistency and smothers onto the skin with ease, taking a while to rub in but that is to be expected with a thicker product! I definitely found my skin to be much more moisturised after using this on a regular basis and even if its used on a rare occasion, it still works to make skin feel noticeable softer within 24 hours.

        Would I buy this body butter again? Absolutely, maybe in another scent but I can't resist the gorgeous fragrance that this one gives and I'd more than likely get this again unless it was off the shelves and I didn't have a choice!

        Disadvantages

        Just ok

        As a lover of body butters from the Body Shop, I couldn't help myself when they had a sale. I bought two for myself and one for my fiancé. As well as buying raspberry scented body butter, I also bought the Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter. At regular price, a 200ml tub will set you back a whopping £13 although I bought mine for £4.55 which is a complete steal in comparison to the full price.

        The body butter comes in a round plastic tub which is a rich, dark purple colour. The tub has a screw top lid on which is pictures of raspberries as well as the name of the product and the body shop logo. The tubs for these body butters are they are normally quite bright and they are easy to get in to, which makes me like them more than the packaging for most beauty products. The tubs are large and are nearly full to the brim with the product. I think that these tubs also stand out and you know when you see one that it is a Body Shop body butter that is inside.

        After unscrewing the lid, you can see that the thick cream inside is a lovely light lilac colour. The colour goes really well with the colour of the packaging with them both being a shade or purple. The smell of this body butter is very sweet and in my opinion, not exactly a true replica of passion fruit. Most other body butters do smell exactly like the fruit they are supposed to smell like but not this one. However, I don't mind that too much as the smell is still really nice. It is very sweet though so it may end up being a bit too sweet smelling for some.

        What I really love about Body Shop body butters is how well they work. The cream is so thick and it soaks into skin easily. I only need to use a little bit to cover my calves, which I use this on mostly and it is easily absorbed. I don't need to spend ages rubbing it into my skin which is nice. I don't like wasting a lot of time on doing things like moisturising. The smell and soft feel of my skin lasts the whole day after using this product which is another thing I love about it. I don't have to worry about my skin getting dry throughout the day and I also smell lovely at the same time.

        I wouldn't pay full price for this particular scent of body butter but it is still a great moisturiser.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good product but a bit expensive for what it is!

          I bought this when it was on a half price sale - it cost me £5 - so I would usually find the body butter range a bit expensive...

          The product comes in a deep purple box, with a sticker on the top with basic information and an ingredient list for the product (see picture). When you open it the actual butter is lilac coloured and fills most of the tub so at least they're not taking advantage of you there. The smell is very strong but quite pleasant - not sure to what extent it actually smells like passion fruit, but it is quite fruity and sweet.

          When you use this, it sinks into your skin very quickly, but sometimes leaves it feeling a bit sticky for a while, so don't plan on getting dressed straight after having applied it. This put me off using it a bit as I felt a bit disgusting being so sticky after using it.

          However, it is very effective - one use cleared up a major dry skin problem I had (obviously if yours is more serious it may take more) which was incredibly useful! I kept using it for a bit after that and then stopped (just due to getting out of the habit, not because of a product flaw) and my skin stayed healthy for a very long time which means it must have done something to fix the original problem!

          Also, the smell does stay on your skin for a long time, which I found quite pleasant. I have had some that just sink in and then there was no point in paying for a 'flavoured' moisturiser. But whether you want to smell like it all day is a matter of personal preference - definitely check the scent of it before you buy - there's enough different Body Shop body butters to find one you will like!

          I would recommend that you keep this product at room temperature as I once accidentally left mine by a radiator and ever since it has been a bit of an odd consistency - still works effectively but it's not quite as good... Also, if it gets too cold it's harder to apply.

          But overall, a good product, would definitely keep an eye out for Body Shop sales though as I don't think it's worth the full £10-£12 it will cost you, no matter how good the product.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good moisturiser but a bit of an acquired taste

          ~~~~~~~~~
          Pricey butters
          ~~~~~~~~~
          I am a big fan of the Body Shop body butters and I do like to try out new butters when I get the chance! As the butters are quite expensive - and I would say over-priced to be honest - I always pick these up when they are in the sale, which also gives me a chance to try out versions I wouldn't usually.

          I bought this one half price in a recent sale, but at full price these cost £12.50 for a 200ml tub. Now as I say I do think this is too much - although I tend to like these body butters I think you can buy other moisturisers that are just as good for much less money! But for about £6 I think they are a good price - so always look out for Body Shop sales!

          This body butter comes in a dark purple coloured tub and, inside, the cream is a pale lilac colour. And you can smell the fragrance of this immediately - it is a really strong, fruity smell! While I am not sure if this is the most authentic passionfruit fragrance, it is definitely fruity and it reminds me a lot of the Body Shop Dewberry fragranced products. It's a sweet, intense smell - and I do think some people might find this too sickly sweet.

          ~~~~~~~~
          Thick 'n' rich
          ~~~~~~~~
          As with all body butters, this is thick and very rich - it is a heavy moisturiser and so ideal for very dry skin. What I do love about the BS body butters is that they sink into the skin so easily - despite this rich texture. So I can just rub this into the skin after a shower and it sinks in within seconds - perfect! And it definitely leaves the skin feeling very soft and moisturised - it is a real treat for dry skin. Even a while after application, skin still feels soft and smooth.

          And the other bonus with this product is that the smell really lingers - which isn't something I can always say about cheaper body lotions. I can still smell this on my skin hours after application, and I think that is testament to the high quality of this product.

          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          A few reservations....
          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
          So overall I do like this product, and it's a very effective moisturiser. However there are two problems for me - one is the price at full price, but the second is that I am not completely sold on the smell! Although I love fruity fragrances, there is something about this one that I just don't quite like - although I like it enough to use it every now and then it is just a touch too sickly sweet I think - and this from the person who loves the satsuma and strawberry body butters! I can imagine that others would hate the smell of this so best to have a sniff before you buy!

          This is a very effective body butter and it really makes skin feel soft and smooth. But I am not sure that the smell would be to everyone's taste - and at full price it is quite expensive. So it's 3.5 stars from me, but I'll round up to 4 as it is a really good moisturiser!

            Disadvantages

            Worth it!

            I am quite a big fan of all of the Body Shop's products, because of the how natural and delicious smelling its products are. I do own quite a lot of their range, and have enjoyed all the body care products I have bought from them. On top of this, the brand is very ethical and environmentally friendly, so I feel less guilty buying these sorts of goods.

            Their body butters are especially famous, with many people clamouring about how absolutely fabulous they are (with me included, actually). On top of this, they are usually displayed near the front of the store, so that it is in plain view of everybody, and it tempts them to try out some testers (which lead them to end up buying the product because the testers just smell so nice!).

            After my small tub of the Body Shop's raspberry body butter ran out, I simply HAD to get another one to replace it, because, quite frankly, it was one of the best body butters I had ever tried, from a good brand that I trusted, too. They may have been excellent body butters, but the Body Shop has never been too laid back on its prices- some would say that £12.50 for a full sized tub is far too much to pay. I do agree that it is rather expensive for just a body butter and you only get a tub, not a vat, but you get used to the pricing if you go into the Body Shop a lot, and, really, is £12.50 too much to pay to get beautifully soft and delicious smelling skin, that other brands of body butters can fail to provide?

            Well, OK, I wasn't really prepared to pay full price just then- I figured that I would just wait until one of the quite frequent (especially at the normal high street sale times, for example Easter, Boxing Day etc.) Body Shop sales, when you can usually buy this body butter for half price or less- not bad at all, I say. Luckily I did not have to wait that long- for my quite recent birthday, my friend bought me a tub of Passion Fruit Body Butter; very generous and thoughtful of her as it saved me quite a bit of money and besides, it was exactly what I needed.

            It comes in a simple purple tub, with a lid that can be easily screwed on or off. It has a picture of passion fruits on the top of the lid, with its classic Body Shop logo and writing. It is quite a large tub, and I only need a little bit for each application, so it is bound to last me quite a long time yet; hopefully I will not have to buy more of this lovely but expensive body butter for some time. Some of the body butter does tend to stick to the lid (especially if the tub has been left the wrong way round), but this can easily be wiped off with your finger and used. After all, every bit did cost quite a lot of money!

            The product is very moisturising; perfect for chapped or dry skin, as it nourishes it and softens it, leaving it feeling refreshed. The texture of the body butter is lovely and smooth, and it leaves your skin similarly so as well. It looks and feels creamy as well as luxurious.

            I am glad that my friend decided to choose me a different and exotic flavour such as passion fruit; she could have just as easily chosen something classic and more common like strawberry or cocoa. As much as I like those classic flavours, I must say that this is a nice change; it has a delicious and exotic scent, sweet but not too perfumed. I do not often eat passion fruit, but when I do I can sometimes experience a slightly unpleasant sharp taste to them- this body butter, however, has none of that. It leaves my skin smelling fresh and exotic.

            In conclusion, I think this is another brilliant buy from the Body Shop, highly recommended. Yes, it is a little on the expensive side, but you can wait for the sales or put it on your wish list for your birthday or Christmas. It is a wonderful little product, delicious smelling, and well worth investing in- your skin will thank you for it!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A sweet smelling moisturiser which will soften and nourish the skin

              The Passion Fruit Body Butter, created by The Body Shop, is a rich moisturiser intended for use on the body. It is designed to provide normal to dry skin with a long lasting hydrating which will leave your skin feeling noticeably smoother and softer for up to 24 hours. The smooth and intensely creamy texture is absorbed surprisingly quickly into the skin, leaving behind only a healthy sheen.

              The product is packaged in a wide mouthed circular tub, as are all of The Body Shop's butter. This particular tub is a milky purple colour. It has a screw top lid that needs to be twisted in order to open and close the tub. The lid is decorated with a passion fruit which has been cut in half and some writing is on the lid which is formed in a circle. This type of packaging allows you to use every last bit of the butter, instead of annoying tube packaging which makes it impossible to finish the product without cutting it open.

              How does it work?
              The product contains Passion Fruit oil, as you may have guessed from the name. This oil is incredibly moisturising and will hydrate even very dry skin. It is enriched with Vitamin C and other antioxidants and improves the elasticity of the skin, which helps to keep it looking younger.

              Also included is a substance called Shea butter which has been used for centuries due to its hydrating properties. The Shea butter rejuvenates and nourishes the skin and helps it to maintain a good moisture balance and creates a barrier to prevent it from becoming dry again when used regularly. As Shea Butter comes from nuts, this product shouldn't be used by anyone with a nut allergy.

              The Fairtrade Shea Butter is bought from a women's working association in Ghana. Thanks to The Body Shop, these women are now able to access clean water, live in better conditions and have an improved quality of life. So not only will your skin be deliciously soft but you will be helping others too.

              The butter also contains Melon Seed Oil which is a light but effective moisturiser. It is rich in fatty acids which are essential for healthy skin and also improves the elasticity of the skin preventing it from looking old and keeping it toned.

              The product costs around £5 for 200ml. The butter itself has a lilac tinge and is very thick in consistency. You won't need to use very much of the product in one go. It almost melts into the skin so it's quick to use. At first, it leaves a sheen on your skin but this fades with time. The butter smells tropical and fruity but there is also an aroma there that I don't like. I'm not sure what it is but I can only describe it as smelling 'dry'. If you find that you like this product, then also available in the collection is the Passion fruit soap, shower gel and scrub.

              The product moisturises the skin effectively, leaving it soft and smooth. It has a healthy glow to it that was lacking before, especially if you've exfoliated before hand. If you love the other body butters, this one will be no different. All in all, a lovely moisturiser which will benefit both you and others. You can't argue with that!

              Ingredients
              Aqua (Water) (Solvent/Diluent), Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter) (Emollient), Cyclomethicone (Emollient), Glycerin (Humectant), Citrullus vulgaris (Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Seed Oil) (Skin Conditioning Agent), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), PEG-

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Worth paying the extra as skin smells gorgeous all day and is soft and smooth

                ---The company---
                The body shop is the original natural and ethical beauty brand that has over 2500 stores in over 60 markets worldwide.It is against animal testing and each product is animal cruelty free and vegetarian. This company has five core values which are support community fair trade, defending human rights, against animal testing, activate self esteem and protecting the planet.

                --The product---
                This is a product of the body butter range, I have based this review on the passion fruit edition. It is for normal to dry skin and it for all over body moisturising. It leaves skin moisturised for up to 24 hours. It comes in a 200ml tub priced at £12.50 per tub. It can also be brought in a smaller container for £5.
                The seen oil helps to moisturise the skin and the shea butter helps to condition the skin. This shea butter and seed oil production provides women in a rural community with regular work and income.

                --- Packaging----
                This body butter comes in a large plastic purple containter with a twist off lid. It has information about the product and body shop and an attractive picture of the moisturiser edition. It has a list of all the ingredients included in the moisturiser.

                ---using the product---
                This moisturiser is best used when the skin has been cleansed with shower gel and exfoliated to rid dead skin cells before application of body butter. The butter should be scooped out of container using fingers and massaged into the skin all over the body.

                ---My opinion---
                Body shop is one of my favourite shops for cosmetics etc. I cannot walk past without nipping in. One of my favourite products is this passionfruit body butter. My mum brought it for me as a gift and I cannot stop using it. I also love the coconut one but this one smells so fruity and delicous on my skin. The lasting fragrance of these body butters is fantastic. I can use it after a shower in the morning and still be smelling it on my skin in the evening. My mum has the mango flavoured one and I have used a little and this is just as gorgeous. It is so easy to apply and is not sticky, it just melts into your skin.
                After using this product my skin feels so smooth and soft and smells just delicous. The only downside is the price as it is quite expensive compared to other moisturisers available although I think this one is worth paying the extra!!

                Thanks for reading, hope this is helpful... please leave comments.

                thanks H xxx

                  The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter

                  I only have two Bodyshop Body Butter reviews to go now and I thought Id get them done today because I seem to have been struck with inspiration for once today - when it comes to reviewing anyway. This is the last body butter I had left to try from my set and I think I might have saved the best till last even though I didnt expect this to smell very nice at all. Im not sure why because I dont think I have ever eaten or smelled a passionfruit before but I just assumed it would be an odd smell. I needn't have worried though because this is an amazing product.

                  Useful Information:
                  Stockists: The Bodyshop & Online On Their Website
                  Price: £12 For A 200ml Tub
                  Shelf Life: 12 Months
                  Delivers Intensive Mouisture For Normal To Dry Skin.

                  This "butter" comes in a large vivid purple screw top tub. The top of the tub is covered with the image of what I guess is passionfruit (Ive never even seen one before!) which looks great and very similar to other butters from this range. The design is very simple but looks really upmarket and posh so I really like this design. The only problem 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.

                  Now Im going to find it really hard to describe the smell of this cream because I have nothing to compare it to. Usually I would say whether or not it actually smells like the fruit its meant to buy in this case I wouldnt have the first clue, in fact if anyone else has tried it I would love to know whether it smells like passionfruit or not. As you may have guessed though this smells incredibly fruity and exotic and the scent is really gorgeous. The scent is definately up there with my favourites from this shop and the scent lasts for absolutely ages on your skin and your clothes! Even though it is so strong though I wouldnt describe it as overpowering in any way as once it sinks into your skin it becomes a really light, subtle fragrance.

                  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!

                  I fully recommend this to anyone who is a fan of this range and even for body butter virgins as I think this would be a great one to start off with. It smells fantastic and it works wonders on dry skin so really whats not to like? Ill certainly be buying a tub in the future - when my massive collection runs out haha!

                  Thanks For Reading

                    leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft

                    I have always been a big fan of the Body Shop products they are always good quality and smell aboslutely lush! I prefer to uses moisturisers or body cream that have a nice fragrance rather than perfume becuase the smell of most fragrances disappear after a few hours. However, with body butters and body creams I found that a soft and gentle scent still stays on your skin.

                    I usually go for the Mango body butter but my sister bought the Passion Fruit body butter for me as a present. This body butter, like all the others, has a great sweet smell to it.

                    I got the 200ml pot that has lasted me around 4 months and I use it most days. However I wouldn't recommend a big pot to someone who uses this kind of product very little, as it evaporates over time.

                    The pot that the body butter comes in is purple and it has a picture of a Passion fruit on the front. The cream itself is a lilac colour and it is very smooth and soft on your skin. To apply the cream all you have to do is scoop a small amount out and smooth over your skin. I use these creams mainly in the summer and after I use them they leave my skin feeling lovely and soft.

                    The cream can get quite greasy if you apply too much and I would recommend it only to people who have normal/dry skin. This body butter is great for the summer but I would advise people who burn easily in the sun to avoid wearing this out in the sunshine. If you wear this cream out in the sun you catch the sun very easily, it acts a little like baby oil.

                    I'd recommend to almost anyone

                    I'm a big fan of Body Shop as it has a range of beauty products and I especially like their Body Masks and Born Lippy products. I've never even tried the Body Butter before so I popped in and bought a 50ml/48g tub of Passion Fruit body butter. It comes in different sizes but I was a bit short of money so bought the smallest one for around £2.50 ( I think - I don't remember prices really ). Anyone can use it really but it's meant to be for people with a Normal/Dry skin type.

                    It comes in a sweet purple tub that you unscrew etc ( I'm not sure how to describe it the word has gone from my mind ! ) but is easy to open and seal. It also has a yes, you guessed it, passion fruit on the front. The body butter itself is a pale lilac colour, and to put it on you just scoop some from the tub and smooth onto skin.

                    Let me say - this smells utterly amazing ! It's a nice sweet, fruity smell that doesn't overpower you. If you want a body butter mostly for it's smell I recommend this. The smell stays lightly on your skin after applying , too. Each tub will last a while , but obviously this varies depending on the size of tub you buy. My skin felt nice and soft after putting on also!

                    The only problem I would say is that it's a bit greasy and sticky - so if you're a beach person I wouldn't buy it. Also, I was left with a bit of a rash as I have sensitive skin so if you have sensitive skin too then I wouldn't recommend it.

                    On the whole, it's a nice wee body butter and I'm sure I'll buy more of this fruity range!

                    Add it to every gift list you ever write.

                    I received some little pots of this as a gift and have never looked back.
                    This one in particular smells absolutely amazing and despite being a completely rational adult (normally) i do feel compelled to taste it (although i haven't).

                    I am not going to review other Body Shop Body Butters since i'd be saying the same things so a quick warning here, if you don't like very floral things or strong smells, avoid the Moringa scented one. Its brutal.

                    This body butter is just about the perfect consistancy. It goes on easily, especially onto damp skin and soaks in instantly. It does go quite a long way though so don't use too much to begin with.

                    I also love that this product is animal friendly and eco friendly and it is reasuring to know what what is going onto my skin is natural and wholesome.

                    I don't buy this all the time since it is really a bit expensive for me. I totally think that it worth what you pay though and come pay rise season this will certainly top of my shopping list.

                    Best body butter I have ever used

                    After my bad experience with the Neal's Yard Body Cream in my other review, I got myself one of these lovely body butters from The Body Shop. It was the first time I'd been in a Body Shop for years and I was quite impressed with the quality of the creams and toiletries on offer.

                    The body butter has got fab packaging - a big chunky tub that's really easy to get open just after you jump out of the shower. The Body Shop perfumes are big and bold too, and the passion fruit smell is intensely delicious! I am not usually a fan of heavy perfumes, but this one just makes me hungry.
                    The body butter itself has a great texture - it's very creamy, and extremely easy to rub in. It gives great coverage, so you're not using too much if you moisturise all over. Afterwards it does leave the skin a little sticky, but not in an unpleasant way. The perfume lingers on the skin, which is something I really like.

                    Although it's not super cheap (at £12.50), The Body Shop quite frequently have discounts online and in-store, so it is worth checking what's around before you order. The tub size itself is 200ml and comes in a huge variety of colours and fragrances.

                    Overall a fab purchase - a must-have in my household.

                    This is the cream of the crop of body butters

                    Ooh how I love to smother this on! The Body shop do the best body butters in my opinion, none quite live up to their standards. Although they are a little bit mro eexpensive than I would spend on myself I still insist on treating myself to one every now and again.
                    The last one I tried though was the passion fruit one and I am now officially hooked. First of all the smell is absolutely fantastic,it is fresh and fruity and smells almost good enough to eat. What sets the body butters apart from other brands though is that they are so thick and creamy, they almost feel like actual butter when you put your hand in. You really do feel like you are pampering yourself when you smother this on. It leaves your skin feeling soo incredibly soft, silky and moisturised. Although it can be pricey it really is worth it, this beats any other moisturiser you can use and it does last!

                    Another lovely body butter!

                    A couple of years ago I received a gift set from the Body Shop as a Christmas present and it included one of their body butters.

                    At the time I was very dubious about using body butter as I expected it to be really greasy and oily, but I was so wrong that I am now a real fan of most of the Body Shop Body Butters, obviously liking some of them more than others.

                    This Christmas one of my presents was a pot of the Passion Fruit Body Butter.

                    As always the packaging looked really smart as it was in a pretty purple screw topped pot with a picture of passion fruit on the top. The top was sealed to the bottom of the pot with a clear plastic seal so that it could not be tampered with before purchase.

                    I removed the seal and as I unscrewed the lid the lovely fragrance of passion fruit wafted up to greet me. The butter itself is a sort of lilac in colour which is pretty much to be expected. It looked glossy and fairly solid almost like a soft slab of butter.

                    I knew what to expect from the body butter as I have already tried quite a few of them and loved them.

                    I ran my fingers across the top of the butter and scooped a small amount out and began to apply it to my skin. As usual it was absorbed into my skin almost immediately. My skin felt soft and smooth and smelled lovely without being the slightest bit greasy - oh, I do love Body Shop Body Butters!

                    When I first started using the Body Butters I took a look at the website and found out that the Body Shop Body Butters are all made from cocoa butter with various different added fragrances and since cocoa butter melts at body temperature this is why the body butter is so easily absorbed into the skin.

                    The fragrance is light and lovely and it does remain on my skin for most of the day - I often get a whiff, especially if I am warm.

                    The passion fruit variety is particularly suitable for normal to dry skin and although my skin isn't particularly dry I loved it and will certainly use it again when I can afford to treat myself or when someone else treats me!

                    There is also some information on the website explaining what the various ingredients of the Body Butter are good for. The passion fruit seed oil helps to moisturise the skin, the melon seed oil helps to condition the skin and the shea butter moisturises and helps soften the skin.

                    Since this was part of a present I had no idea how much it had cost so I took a look at www.bodyshop.co.uk and found that a 50ml pot (which wouldn't last very long) is £5 and a 200ml pot is £12.50 so if this is something that you use on a regular basis there are clearly decent economies of scale to be had here.

                    The other fragrances of body butters available from the Body Shop are pink grapefruit (gorgeous), Japanese cherry blossom (haven't smelled this one yet), vanilla spice (too strong for me), Vitamin E (take it or leave it), moringa (fantastic smell), coconut (yuk no thanks!), cocoa butter (not keen), Shea butter (not keen), strawberry (too sweet), Satsuma (very nice), mango (very nice), Brazil nut (no thanks), olive (yuk no!), papaya (yes, yes) and hemp (take it or leave it).

                    Going back to the Passion Fruit Body Butter there are other items within the Body Shop range that match it and they are shower gel, body scrub, lip butter and dry oil mist.

                    There are often offers available during the year and of course at Christmas we get the lovely gift sets. It is also worth noting that if you have a Body Shop Love Yourself card you will also get 10% of every order and, if you shop through Quidco you will get a further 15% cash back so there are certainly bargains around if you look for them.
