===Why I Bought It===
I love the Body Shop body butters but had never tried the Strawberry version before. However I had bought the strawberry soap a while ago which had a very good fragrance so when this was on offer on the Body Shop website I decided to buy it. It was meant for my present drawer but then I gave in and used it for myself!
(Packaging updated since the image above was added - the tubs now have a single strawberry on the lid. However my packaging was the same as above.)
Comes in a lovely dark red tub with a screw-top lid. Security sealed with clear plastic band around the lid until first opened.

I now well and truly love these body butters and find them the best moisturisers I have ever used.
This Strawberry Body Butter was bought at £3 for my present drawer but I have found my feet were feeling so dry I just had to dig in and use this one for myself.
I have not had this variety of body butter before but I did have some of the soaps last Christmas which I found very pleasant and with a nice aroma.
This body butter is a pale pink colour and both in appearance and smell resembles either strawberry ice cream or yoghurt - it is delicious . The texture is very thick and it is almost solid in the tub - you can turn it upside down without anything moving at all.
On opening the lid there is a very strong sweet smell. I use this mainly for my hands, feet, arms and legs. I find this takes a while to soak in and I prefer to apply it before going to bed. The smell is a delicate fruity strawberry aroma. As with the other butters it is very moisturising so you only use a little and even after showering the next morning when you are drying yourself you can feel that your legs are more moisturised.
The smell is very pleasant and not overpowering in a sickly sort of way so would not interfere with any perfumes you used.
I think my favourite body butters so far have been the grapefruit and satsuma, but unless you try the other varieties you never know - and for £3 I think it is very good value.
The body butters are definitely the best moisturisers I have used for texture, staying power and moisturising properties.
Personally I could not afford them at full price so I keep an eye out for special offers on the Body Shop website and then stock up - supposedly as presents but I do have to have a little treat now and again for myself as well.
I have loved all the body butters I have tried in their different ways - probably apart from the Aloe one which, being for sensitive skin, I had not realised had no fragrance - but that was my mistake.
4 stars - would have been 5 but a bit expensive at full price - so keep an eye out for bargain offers.
