WHAT IS IT?
Body Butter from The Body Shop. I have the Vineyard Peach variety but there are a lot of different butters for you to choose.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
You rub the body butter into clean skin and let it sink in so that it moisturises your skin as deep as possible.
I like the fragrance of this body butter very much because it has got a very rich peach smell that is sweet and very beautiful. I can smell shea butter in it as well and that makes the body butter smell like it is going to be effective because of how rich and good quality it is.
DOES IT WORK?
I think that this body butter is very effective and it makes my skin feel like it is full of nourishment and it feels soft as soon as I apply it. I do not use the same body butter every day because I think it is a little bit too greasy but if my skin feels like it is starting to go dry then I apply this peach body butter or one of my other body butters from the Body Shop and that makes me feel a lot better.
WHAT I THINK
I feel the same about all of the body shop body butters because they are mostly all the same except for their fragrance. I think this is one of the ones I favour because I like the rich peach smell so much and the way it stays on my skin for a long time also.
I do not like the very thick texture and this body butter takes a long time to rub into my skin but it works very well to moisturise so I do not care so much about that. It feels very greasy and I would not put on my clothing as soon as I had applied it so that is why I like to apply it at night before I go to bed because I think it is too heavy to use at the start of the day.
The effect on my skin is very good and even though this body butter is so greasy I will continue use. It makes my skin feel soft and I like how moisturised my skin is after I use it, also the effects last for a lot longer than when I use any other body lotion or body butter so that my skin still feels moisturised many hours after I apply it.
A 200ml pot of Vineyard Peach body butter costs about £13 and that is expensive for body butter but it is very effective and smells beautiful so I do not care about the cost. I have in use a smaller pot right now because it came in a set I was gifted for Christmas but I will buy it again.

One of the cashback sites that I use had a bodyshop offer a while back which worked out at pretty good value. It offered some money off as well as money back on anything you bought so I decided to indulge. As it happened I was in need of a new blusher brush anyway so I decided to see what else there was on the site and ordered a couple of things.
At the time I was in need of some new body products and I thought peach would be the perfect scent to go for. I love girly smells and am particularly partial to fresh fruity smells so this was an obvious choice for me. I have used a few of the bodyshop body butters before and they are always amazing. They do tend to be a tad expensive (around £13 for 200ml) but as I knew I was getting a good deal I thought I would give this one a try.
The body butter comes in the standard circular tub with a twist lid. This one is peachy coloured and has a large peach on the lid. The design is very simple but functional and the packaging tells you exactly what you are getting inside. Overall the packaging is relatively unexciting but it does the job and that's enough for me.
Instantly when you open up the tub you get this hit of intense peachy smell. The cream is a lovely pale peachy colour and feels very thick and rich. The cream is such a lovely thick consistency that you actually don't need a huge amount when you use it as it goes very far and does a great job at moisturising. I like the fact that the tub is completely open and allows you very easily to scoop out as much or as little as you need. It also means the container is fab to keep afterwards when you have finished all the cream as you can store remnants of other bottle in there.
Aside from giving my body a lovely fresh peachy smell which is creamy and sweet the moisturiser is also really good quality and works instantly on hydrating my skin. The moisturiser is very easy to rub into the skin and leaves my body feeling really soft and supple. It works on my skin for hours and I generally find I only really have to fully moisturise twice a week.
The cost is still pretty high considering that it is just a moisturiser. I do think that the moisturiser is lovely but I'm not sure I'd fork out for it without the incentive of money back and special offers. Overall, I'll definitely be buying this again but not without some kind of special offer to tempt me.
Last October time Bodyshop had some sort of glitch going on, to be honest I would say Bodyshop are probably the best site for their glitches as they seem to be quite regular. I cannot remember exactly what it was but it ended up I got somewhere in the region of £40 of products for about £12 so it was really worth it.
I had heard so much about these body butters and had wanted to try some but the price of £12.50 for a 200ml tub which I may point out has now risen to £13 always put me off somewhat. Some of the body butters are available in a smaller 50ml size for £5 which does allow you to see if you like the product or not however is much worse value than the bigger tub.
The body butter comes in a peachy coloured round plastic tub with a screw top lid on it, on the top of the lid there is a picture of a scrumptious looking peach, I like the way the tubs of the body butters make it very easy to see what the fragrance is. Around the sticker on the lid you have the name of the fragrance along with the weight of the product which is 192grams or 6.7 ounces. On the underneath of the tub you find a peel back mini booklet which provides you with contact details for Bodyshop and a full list of ingredients which of course is helpful if you have an allergy to anything.
When you open the plastic tub you can smell the peaches and the scent is really lovely, I was a little wary ordering online as I didn't know how they would smell however obviously the glitches don't work in store. The cream inside the tub is a pale peach colour in keeping with the packaging and the scent and it is really thick. You only need a small amount of cream however as its thick it is easy to scoop out too much in one go so I tend to actually dip my fingers into the cream rather than scooping it out.
The product makes my skin feel really soft and moisturised and this being my first try at a body butter I was really impressed, the smell is gorgeous but isn't strong enough in my opinion as I really like to be able to smell products on my skin and after a few hours it is a little hard to detect the smell.
I really like the body butter and would recommend it but would say if you like a subtle smell then this is for you and if you prefer a stronger scent then there are other body butters in the range which will provide that better than this one. The butter really leaves my skin feeling great and I often use this along with another couple of butters that I really like.
The body shop has to be one of the best shops for skin care. The Body shop, as well as making wonderful skin care also only use fair trade Shea butter. I think this makes the shop much, much more likeable.
Vineyard Peach Body Butter is a special edition from the Body shop.
What's the packaging like?
The packaging is a screw top tub. It's a wonderful peachy colour plastic substance.
This product contains loads of ingredients and different things so I'm going to put my favourite ones down.
Wonderful wild peach extract.
Their signature fair trade Shea butter.
Fair trade nut oil.
How the product works...
The Body shop promotes this product as being great for the skin, constant 24 hour hydration, smooth soft and sexy skin. As well as having a beautiful peachy scent. The body shop says that this product has a slight scent. I have to disagree, I would be disappointed with a slight scent, when wearing this product you smell like a peach, it's wonderful.
How it feels....
This cream is like a thin buttery lotion that is non greasy.
How to apply...
You can massage this product into your skin anytime during the day but I much prefer smothering myself in it just after I have got out of the shower or bath. I think my skin absorbs it much more and it keeps my skin ultra soft.
This product ranger from about £4 upwards depending on where you get it from.
The wonderful peachy smell, I bought this beause I do love the body shop and I believe that every time I buy something off them, they deliver.
Skin hydration, with me having sensitive skn the body shop does wonders for me, ever since using this product and buying stuff from the body shop my dry skin has come down considerably.
The price, for what you get, the price is great.
Fair trade, I love the fact they do fair trade and are giving something back and helping instead of taking taking taking.
The only disadvantage I have to put is, I would recommend this product to be a permanent fixture in the body shop and not just a special edition.
A wonderfully great body butter. Great for my skin, smells amazing!! The body shop has delivered again!
Would I recommend....
Of course I would recommend, it's a great butter and fantastic for the skin.
I am not really a body shop fan I think their products are overpriced however I was given this buddy butter as a gift and so of course used it.
What is it?
A body butter which is for moisturising the skin quite simply you smooth over your skin two or three times a week to leave your skin soft and fragranced. The Butter also gives your skin hydration particulary important in the winter months with all the harsh weather and of course a must if you suffer from dry skin.
This is normally £13.00 for 200ml however currently on the website it is £6.50 as it is showing on clearance plus if you spend over £20.00 you get free delivery and they are also doing 25%off on purchases online
I loved this is smelt gorgeous left my skin feeling soft and did exactly what it said, but unless this was on offer I really couldn't justify the price tag so only if someone else purchases this will I be getting anymore.
As any of you who read my reviews will know I love the Body Shop Body Butters and have tried a fair few of them. At Christmas I received a 200ml pot of one of the newer fragrances called Vineyard Peach and it is lovely!
These currently cost £13.00 each although if, like me, you have a Love Your Body card you get 10% off all purchases either in store or online so it would only cost £11.70. They are also often available on EBay at good prices too.
The packaging is the same as all the other Body Shop Body Butters in that it is a round, screw topped pot. The colour of each pot is relevant to the body butter inside and so this one is peach in colour. Each pot has a really simple design with a picture on the top of the flower, fruit or nut which is the main ingredient of the body butter.
Not unsurprisingly this one has a picture of a peach on the top with two small green leaves sprouting from the top. In the centre of the picture is the Body Shop logo in silver. Around the side of the pot are the words 'Vineyard Peach Body Butter 200ml - 6.7oz - 192g' in English and French. The peel off label on the bottom of the pot has a more information about the butter including a full list of the ingredients and also some information about the Body Shop Community Trade Project.
When I unscrewed the lid a wonderful fragrance of peaches wafted around the room. The top of the butter inside was smooth and glossy and, of course, it was a pale peachy colour.
I wasn't certain whether I was actually going to like the Vineyard Peach Body Butter. I love to eat peaches but I have to admit to being a little unsure about wearing them!
The only way to find out was to try it. I ran my fingers across the top of the butter, finding it to be as smooth and pleasant to the touch as all the other body butters I have tried.
I scooped a small amount out and began to apply it to my skin. As usual it was absorbed into my skin almost immediately and it made my skin feel soft and smooth without being the slightest bit greasy and yes, the smell was lovely! I actually liked the fragrance ion my skin and enjoyed smelling like a peach - it is a delicate fragrance which lasts all day but it isn't so strong that you feel as though you're in a greengrocers!
After doing a bit of investigation on the Body Shop website I discovered that all of the Body Shop Body Butters are made from a base of 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.
There are many other fragrances available in the body butter range as well as all the other ranges - body scrubs, shower gels, soap etc. There are ones made from nut oils such as almond, coconut and Brazil but I am not very keen on these. Most of the fruit ones are nice enough and I particularly like Satsuma, mango and passion fruit, but my real favourite of them all is Moringa which, in my opinion, has the best fragrance of any of them!
Getting back to the Vineyard Peach Body Butter the Body Shop also makes a matching Body Scrub and I have seen shower gel and body lotion although I don't know if these are still being made as I can't find them on the website.
The other big advantage of buying from The Body Shop is the fact that they have many projects in place to help to support the growers of all their ingredients and help to give them an improved standard of life. Of course, it almost goes without saying, that nothing made by The Body Shop would ever be tested on animals!
So there you have it - another lovely Body Butter from The Body Shop. It isn't my absolute favourite but I do really like it and glad that it was one of my Christmas presents!
I have to say i bought this purely because i was addicted to the smell! Thinking i would open the pot every now and then just to have a sniff! But it was £12 - reasonably expensive for a moisturiser and thought i should actually use it as well as smell it. It is what it says it is - it has the consistency of butter. You only need a little bit and it glides on your skin like butter would and it rubs in really quickly without the greasy finish and having to wait a while before you put your clothes on. It smells as great on your skin as it does in the pot too. Yummy. It keeps my skin moist and there is no greasy shine, just a nice glow. I have very dry skin, especially on my face and this does the trick. Goes well under make-up too and helps my foundation go on evenly and it also means i use less, so saving pennies all round. I may have thought it a bit pricey but because of the benefits and the fact that it last a long time because you only use a little, it is worth every penny.
This delicious Vineyard Peach Body Butter is almost good enough to eat! Although not quite as strong or as long lasting as some of the other butters offered by the Body Shop, it is pleasant to use. It is a fairly new product, and on the day it came out I happened to be passing by the Body Shop where a sales person was inviting the public to try the testers; I was sold by the pleasant-smelling, cool and easily absorbed body butter, and bought one at the special price they were offering that day (£6), but it is currently being sold for £13.
Regarding the packaging; the tub is of the same style as the other Body Shop Body Butters, however the lid design feels a bit amateurish, and I think they could have worked a bit harder on the lid design, which is the main focal point.
Regarding the body butter itself; it appears to have no parabens, like all Body Shop products it is not tested on animals, and the peel-back label on the bottom of the tub states which of the ingredients are sourced via fair trade projects; in this case: the shea and cocoa butter from Ghana, beeswax from Cameroon, sesame oil from Nicaragua, and organic Brazil nut oil from Peru. (However transporting all of these ingredients from so many different and far countries cannot be good for the environment). I shall copy to the end of this review the ingredients from the product's webpage for your reference. It is designed for dry skin, and additionally, it states not to apply it to your face... although I do, and nothing bad has happened!
As I mentioned in the beginning, this body butter does not have a very strong scent, although it is a very pleasant one. If I were to buy it again, however, I would look out for a smaller tub (the one I bought was 12m) since I don't find I need to apply a lot, and after having it for about a month, it does not smell as nice. The texture of the butter is wonderful, and it's my favourite quality of this product. It claims to hydrate dry skin for 24 hours and I wouldn't dispute this claim. I find it does moisturise skin very well making it a great choice for dry winter skin - which I haven't experienced so far possibly due to using this body butter. This means however that while it doesn't have a very greasy feel, it wouldn't be suitable for oily skin.
If you enjoy languages like I do, you can be entranced by reading the different languages on the ingredients' label!
In conclusion, I have found this a wonderful purchase, however due to it not smelling quite as nice as when I first opened the tub, I would purchase this in a smaller amount.
