Just after Christmas, I spotted that the Body Shop has reduced the cherry body butter to less than £4 for a 200ml tub, although I had never purchased the cherry fragrance before, I am a big fan of the strawberry and thought that this wouldn't be too dissimilar so I decided to buy a few.
The butter comes in a bright red pot with a screw top lid; the fragrance is easily identifiable by the image of mouth watering cherries covering the lid. When it comes to any type of fragrances, for me, the fruitier, the better and this one doesn't disappoint, as soon as I unscrew the lid, the aroma of those juicy cherries starts to emerge from the pot. The fragrance is quite strong, so much so that you don't really need to put the pot to your nose to know what fragrance it is. Unlike a lot of creams, the fragrance of the butter is really realistic; it doesn't smell synthetic at all like some cheaper brands I have used in the past. Just like the name says, this is just like butter except it is a pale pink colour, applying is easy and the butter glides over my skin and absorbs really easily and quickly.
The only downside of the butter coming in a tub I find is to apply, I have to dip my fingers into the tub, and this means that I get the butter under my nails!
The body butter is available in store and online, the recommended retail price for a 50ml pot is £5 and for a 200ml pot is £13, I class this as quite expensive for a body cream but the Body Shop always have loads of great online offers such 40% off or reduced the 200ml tubs to £5 so I always tend to stock up then. I have also signed up to their newsletter and every week or so, I tend to receive an email with some fantastic discounts. Also, if you buy online, there are normally some fantastic cash back offers available too (about 15 - 20%!)
The results are that my skin feels nice and smooth however unlike the rest of the butters I have used, this one doesn't seem to hydrate as much as the others; the skin on my lower legs tends to get a little dry from shaving and I find that they still look a bit dry a few hours after applying the cream. On normal skin however I do find the butter quite sufficient. The fragrance is long lasting too which I love, at the end of the day, I can still smell the fruity aroma on my skin - I do however have to be a bit careful as to what perfume I am wearing as it can sometimes clash.
Overall, I would recommend this, but because it isn't as good with dry skin as some of the other butters, I would only give 4 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
For any of you who have been reading some of my recent reviews you will know I got a really great deal on some Bodyshop items last October and this was the first time I had used one of their body butters. Looking at the site just after Christmas as I had found out about yet another glitch and going through to see what they had put in the sale to make the most of it I came across this product and paid a giant £1.50 for a 50ml tub.
The body butters are not exactly cheap when you think you can pick a butter up for £1 in the poundshops however I do believe the Bodyshop ones are worth the money. A large 200ml tub of the body butter costs £13 and a smaller 50ml tub which is only available in certain fragrances is £5. If you order from Bodyshop online then you do get loads of emails with lots of different offers on them so it is worth waiting for a decent offer.
The body butter comes in a rich red plastic tub with a screw top lid on it, on the top of the lid there is a sticker with the name and logo of the company, the name of the product, the weight of the product and a picture of some really shiny looking cherries. On the underneath of the tub you have a peel back leaflet which gives you the contact details for Bodyshop and a list of ingredients. You can actually smell the butter from the outside of the tub with this one.
On opening the lid the smell of cherries is gorgeous, the smell is extremely sweet however so if you don't like things that are too sweet then this one is not for you. The cream is pale pink in colour and it is so thick that if you have had it stored on it's side which mine was when it arrives it takes ages for the cream to settle back straight when you put it the correct way up.
To use the product you simply dip your finger in and it clings to your finger or sweep your finger over the top of the cream and again it will cling to your skin, rub the cream into your skin and you will see the results for yourself. My skin is left smelling fruity but not as sweet as I expected after the smell in the ub and it feels really soft, if you cream the back of one hand and then compare to your other hand you can see the skin is nourished and looks more alive.
I really love the body butters and can see me collecting new ones whenever there is a good offer on, the butters are worth the full price they sell for however I don't see the point in paying the full price unless I ran out which with my collection is not likely to ever happen. My skin feels great and I love all the different smells they have to offer and that with a lot of the fragrances you can buy accompanying products.
I am very fond of some of the Body Butters from The Body Shop and was presented with ample opportunity to purchase some of the neatly sized 50ml tubs of the Butters during their recent promotional sales that were running in some of their stores.
One of the Body Butters that I purchased at this time was a 50ml tub of the Wild Cherry Butter, which is one of my favourite Body Butters and I have bought it many times before. There is a bit of a rumour at present (August 2012) that some of the fruit-based Body Butters are being discontinued in the coming months, which I sincerely hope is not the case as I love them so much! I cannot find the Wild Cherry Butter on The Body Shop website at present (to be found at www.thebodyshop.co.uk) but I have seen it for sale recently in several of their stores so fingers crossed it will be available for some time to come. The normal price for the large 200ml tub of the Butter is £12.50.
The packaging for the product is very similar to any other body butter product that I have bought from The Body Shop before, comprising of a circular tub made of hard-wearing, robust plastic. There is a screw-off lid on top which is easy to open and replace, in my experience. The Wild Cherry Body Butter is easy to spot among other butters on the shelf, thanks to the image of plump-looking red cherries that appear on the product's label. This, together with the deep red colour of the tub allow for a very eye-catching product, in my opinion.
The butter itself is of a very thick consistency as you would expect. Being a pale pink colour, the product actually resembles yoghurt or something similar, although it is much more 'solid' than this. The appearance is very attractive and inviting, and the butter has a sort of glossy sheen to it. The rich aroma starts to escape from the tub as soon as I start to undertake the application process...
Being completely true to the scent of cherries, I find the fragrance is completely inviting and quite delicious. The wonderfully rich, fruity cherry tones are not at all subdued or hidden, sitting right at the front of the butter's scent. The butter's aroma is quite sweet, although not overpowering or sickly, even after the product has absorbed into the skin, which is probably thanks to a sort of 'powdery' quality that is evident in the backdrop of the product's aroma. This is very subdued, but I find that it balances the fruity cherry tone nicely to ensure it carries on the skin perfectly, offering a balanced cherry aroma that is without any sharpness or sickliness.
I find the aroma is quite mouth-watering and the butter feels like a wonderfully refreshing product to wear. The fruity tones feel perfectly suited to the summer months, but I am such a fan of the cherry scent that it is a product that I will purchase for myself on a year-round basis.
I find too that the scent lasts for quite a long time which is something that is welcome by me, but I would think it may well interfere with other products worn at the same time. I won't be deducting any points from the rating score however, as the scent is not over-powering or demanding, and as the fragrance feels wonderfully uplifting to me, it's presence is always welcome.
The Wild Cherry Butter is extremely easy to apply to the skin and the thick nature of the product allows it to feel extremely nourishing to tired, thirsty skin. It would be easy for a product like this one to feel greasy or rather 'slicked' on the skin but this feeling is nowhere to be found. Instead, the thick butter feels whipped when applied to the skin, and this gives a rather luxurious feel. It is true to say that the butter takes a little longer than other, lighter products to absorb fully into the skin, but not excessively so. And certainly not to the extent that it would deter me from repurchasing, but it is perhaps a product that is not best suited to those times when we are rushing around trying to get ourselves ready of a morning.
I do find that only a little of the product is required with each use, and as the product has a surprisingly 'light' consistency to it, it spreads over the skins surface easily - much easier than other body butter products that I use regularly. This means that less of the butter needs to be used, and so the product has proven to be an economical purchase, which goes some way to justifying the higher-than-average price tag.
The moisturisation properties to be found from the Wild Cherry Body Butter are second to none; not only is skin completely softened after application, but I find the effects are quite long-lasting, with the soft and supple effects being evident for a good few days after each application. This result in itself is enough to warrant a recommendation from me, but the fact that the product causes nothing in the way of aggravation or irritation to my sensitive skin - and in particular, the troublesome eczema which 'flares' easily - is a huge and very welcome bonus for yours truly. It is true to say that many products - particularly those with a strong scent to them - can often aggravate my sensitive skin, but no such unwelcome side-effects have been evident from using this product.
As I am sure you have worked out by now, I am a huge fan of the Wild Cherry Body Butter from The Body Shop and it is a product that I will continue to repurchase as long as it is stocked in my local branch. It is a product that has earned each and every penny of it's higher-than-average price tag in my opinion, and the gorgeous aroma and excellent moisturisation properties to be found from the product are second to none in my opinion. I love it, and have nothing negative to report whatsoever.
I started using this body butter over a year ago and quickly became a big fan of this product. I used it alot during and after I'd been on a beach holiday as my skin was becoming increasingly dry from the sun. The butter really helped to keep my skin hydrated, it soaks in very easily and doesn't tend to leave a greasy residue. The result it lovely soft skin, if I have a shower and don't use it, I definitely notice a difference. The smell of this one is delicious, it is quite strong, and ir does linger so it's important you like the smell before you buy. These body butter are, in my opinion, very expensive as they don't go that far. I can easily get through a pot in a month. They are on sale after Christmas though, so that's the perfect time to stock up when they're better than half price!
Half price cherry treat
I recently reviewed the Body Shop Wild Cherry shower gel and concluded that, although I wasn't a massive fan, I was quite keen to give the matching body butter a go. Overall I found the scent of the shower gel a bit too subtle - and not really very cherry-ish - and found that it just didn't linger at all. However I had an inkling that maybe the subtle scent would work in the body butter format!
Then lo and behold, the Body Shop has a sale and the Wild Cherry body butter is half price at a tasty £6! So here was my chance to put my theory to the test.
Generally I love Body Shop body butters. They are incredibly rich and smooth and give an intense moisture boost to the skin. The fragrances are also gorgeous, coming in an array of fruity and nutty scents. My favourites are satsuma, strawberry and mango - so I clearly have love for the fruit fragrances. My only gripe with the products is that, at £12 at full price, they are very pricey. To be honest I think you can buy moisturisers for a fraction of this price which are pretty much as good as the BS versions so this always seems to be over the odds to pay. But for £6 I think I can justify these lovely treats, so I always look out for the butters in the BS sales. Incidentally, the small 50ml version of this body butter is £5. This body butter is for normal skin (others are for dry and very dry skin).
Is it cherry nice?
The tub I bought is 250ml and is a lovely rich red colour. The label on the top depicts lots of nice juicy cherries! As with all BS products it's nice, attractive packaging. Inside, the cream is a pale pink colour and the first thing I noticed when I pressed my finger to the cream is that it is a much thinner texture than other body butters - much less buttery in fact! Of all the body butters I have used, I think this is the lightest in texture - although it is still a thick cream and definitely not a thin lotion or anything like that. However whereas with other body butters I would happily place the tub upside-down on my head, I definitely wouldn't with this one!
This sinks into the skin quite easily. You don't need to put much effort into it and I would say it is absorbed pretty much instantly. As I say it is definitely lighter than other body butters - however it does have a slightly greasy feel to it. This isn't particularly unpleasant but you can definitely 'feel' it on your skin after application. If I apply this as a handcream it does leave my hands feeling a bit greasy. I don't think this is the case with other body butters so I am surprised that this lighter butter leaves that slight residue. However this does moisturise the skin nicely but is definitely not as rich as other body butters, and I don't think this would be suitable for very dry skin.
A faint fragrance
The other thing I need to mention is of course the smell. Just like with the shower gel I think the cherry fragrance is very faint - I can just detect it if I sniff the body butter deeply. To me it has a light fruity fragrance which is not overwhelmingly of cherries. I like the smell - the lightness of it matches the texture and it feels like a good body butter for the summer months - I tend to find other BS butters too rich for hot days so this offers a good compromise. As with other body butters the smell lingers nicely and overall I find it to be a pleasant fragrance - although I don't adore it as I do with some of the other BS butters!
Overall this is an okay body butter. It certainly isn't up there with my favourites and I think some people may be disappointed with the slightly greasy texture - although I can live with this I must admit it's a bit unpleasant. Also if you are a cherry lover and really want a cherry scented cream then I wouldn't recommend this - the cherry scent is, I think, quite faint and this has a much more indistinct fruity fragrance.
I don't hate this but I don't love it. I will definitely use it over the summer months (if the sun ever comes out!) as I think the fragrance is nice and light, and it adds a good moisture boost without being too heavy - but I am very glad I didn't pay full price for it - I think this is massively over-priced at £12!
It's been a body butter bonanza at the Body Shop the last few weeks with pots being half price and lately buy one sale item get another half price in the summer sale. This means I've been stocking up. The latest purchase for me has been a small pot of the wild cherry body butter for my desk in work.
I find I get dry hands in work due to the harshness of the soap we have. Usually I have a tube of hand and nail cream but when I ran out of my last lot I decided on some body butter. Body shop is my favourite for this and I usually prefer the stronger less fruity ranges like Almond or Shea butter, However as I'd bought these I decided to give a small pot of wild cherry a go as it was only £1.50 with a purchase in the sale.
The pot describes it as "creamy moisturisation with a tantalising hint of Cherry Oil" it is a little more than a hint in my opinion as it has quite a strong fruity cherry smell. I quite like this and it's nice for summer. The smell lasts for a few hours and is pleasant.
This body butter is a lot more liquid in texture than the usual body shop types I buy. However as I'm using it for my hands on my desk in work this suits me fine as it absorbs really quickly and easily allowing me to carry on typing within seconds without leaving a residue on my keyboard.
This moisturises well and you only need a small dab - I think it will last a long time. Unlike some of the other ones it doesn't leave a sheen as such on the skin, but for hands I find this preferable. It leaves skin feeling smooth but not sticky or tacky.
The small pot is very easy to open and fits well on my desk. It's also small enough to slip into a handbag easily, though with it being quite liquid I would recommend caution after opening if it has been jiggled about a bit. The butter can end up on the lid so it can be messy to open. If it's stable - on a desktop or dressing table - no problem.
For those of you who are familiar with my reviews you will be aware of my passion for shopping. If I could have my choice of only two areas from which to purchase they would be Betty Boop figurines and toiletries, as what woman doesn't love beautiful things? I've always taken extra care with my skin on both my body and face and can be proud of its' condition, which is down to a healthy diet and a combination of beauty products. I'm a real fan of The Body Shop Body Butters and this review discusses my experience with their Wild Cherry. One of my reasons for favouring The Body Shop butters is that they can be teamed up with the matching products, such as bath and shower gels, soaps and lip butters.
APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT
In my opinion, the majority of The Body Shop products are extremely appealing to the eye, as the moment I step inside one of their shops my eyes are drawn to the multi-coloured displays of various bottles, tubes and tubs. All of their Body Butters are contained within sturdy circular plastic tubs and can generally be purchased in three sizes. The one that I own at present is the 50ml size and its' appearance is identical to that of the larger version. The colours of their toiletries are always so vivid and normally depict the fragrance within and the packaging of the cherry body butter is of course, bright red. There is always a circular label contained on the lid of the packaging and in the case of the wild cherry we are able to see an image of some extremely mouth watering cherries. For hygienic reasons, The Body Shop Body Butters are always sealed with a piece of transparent packaging, which is easily removed by way of the perforations located on the one side of the lid.
The moment I unscrew the lid and remove it from the tub I can smell the most delicious and very fruit aroma of the wild cherries and the temptation to lick the mouth watering contents is almost too much to resist. The butter is a pale pink in colour and its' appearance looks very luxurious. I've been using The Body Shop's butters for a number of years with my favourites being satsuma, moringa and lemon, so I was fully aware of how effective the product would be, as I cannot state that I have experienced one disappointment with any of the products within the body butter range.
USING THE BODY BUTTER
As soon as I dip my fingertips into the thick cream its' high quality is clearly evident, as unlike some of the other brands I have tried, the butter is non greasy and is soft, fluffy and very luxurious. I scoop out only a small amount and gently massage it into my legs, arms and feet and this is a routine I follow every evening without fail, as the product will work its' magic whilst I am in the land of nod. I am not a fan of creams that rest heavily on the skin, as they can often be rather thick and stodgy, but The Body Shops' butters are easily applied and fast absorbing and I never feel the need to rush to wash my hands afterwards. Whilst the butter is very effective, once a week I will use more intensive products on my feet, such as The Body Shop's Hemp. Although I would describe this product as mild and gentle, it is extremely effective, but it goes without saying that regular use is necessary to achieve the best results.
As previously stated, I have moisturised my body for years where I would use basic lotions, which were effective, but not as hydrating as a butter. Consequently, the first time I used The Body Shop's butters I was amazed at how much softer and smoother my skin felt and I would describe it as silky soft. There is never any sticky residue, as the butter quickly soaks into the skin whilst leaving a beautiful aroma of cherries lingering on its' surface, which is very subtle and fresh. I suffered no adverse effects when using as the butter is suitable for daily use and is marketed towards females due to its' aroma. I cannot recommend this product highly enough and as a result, it receives 5 stars from me.
INGREDIENTS AND OTHER INFORMATION
Located on the underside of the tub is a pull back label, which reveals an extremely lengthy list of ingredients, which I do not intend copying into this review. However, I will advise of the key ingredients, which are wild cherry seed oil, Community Fair Trade soya oil and Community Fair Trade organic olive oil. You may be aware that The Body Shop does not test any of its' products on animals and it supports Community Trade and the soya oil used in this butter provides a regular income to 500 Capanema farmers in Brazil. If you wish to find out further information relating to the campaigns and values of The Body Shop you are able to find this on their website.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
You can either purchase this gorgeous butter online or in store where it has been reduced by 50%, so a 200ml tub will cost you £6 as opposed to £12.50. It is very rare that I will purchase in store, particularly as there are often many offers available online. If you own a Love My Body card you will also be able to obtain a further 10% discount, which makes this product pretty good value for money.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
After mentioning recently to my sister how much I love body scrubs and butters, yet never seem to have the money (just lately!) to buy any as a treat, she turned up with a bag full of them for me, she said they were out of sets she had received for Christmas and her birthday, and she would never use them, yes, I do love her!
In the bag, and among the many different pots of lotions and potions I honed straight in on this one first, due many to it's scent, though my sister said it smelt vile to her, to me it was just delicious!
The lotion or I should say "body butter" is from the body shop and is scented with wild cherries (one of my favourite scents, I love anything fruity smelling), and was eager to try some out.
As with many of these so called "butters" they come in a wide mouthed squat pot, this is no different and comes complete with a screw on lid.
Once opened, you are faced with a pot full of a beautifully deep pink coloured lotion, and though it seems nice and thick, really substantial, it is not though, what I would deem a butter, more a thick cream.
To use I always apply after a nice hot bath as my skin (by that point anyway!) is at it's driest, and literally sucks the moisture into the skin.
The cream feels lovely when it goes onto the skin, soaks in nicely (though I tend to lather on then put my PJ's on over the top for added "sinking in" time), and leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft, and not tight or irritated like some other strongly scented creams have done in the past.
This particular pot is a slightly smaller one than they would sell in the shop (due to it being part of a gift et) but even with this 50ml pot lasted me a good few applications, so much so that I would even consider paying it's rather expensive price for a full sized pot!
Prices are my big thing, with me being on a budget so after a quick perusal on the website www.thebodyshop.co.uk, I was more than pleased to find all the body butters reduced due to a sale on at the moment, so all 200ml pots are being sold for £6.00, except for the wild cherries one that is currently on sale for £3.00, I know where I am going this weekend!
This is a lovely body cream that really shouldn't be advertised as a butter, (because it isn't!), but was still effective in it's moisturising effects, recommended!
Thanks for reading x
Recently I was given a sample of the relatively new Wild Cherry Body Shop body butter. I have tried several of the body butters in the past, with my favourites being the Almond and Coconut varieties, but if I was choosing a new one I don't think the Wild Cherry body butter would be the top of my list, not having tried it before.
Having fairly low expectations, I was very pleasantly surprised by the Wild Cherry body butter. The smell of it is absolutely heavenly, and it is evocative of long summer afternoons and home-baked desserts. Like all other Body Shop body butters I have tried, it smells very natural, and this is perhaps unsurprising considering the quantity of natural ingredients that go into the making of it.
The body butter is a natural pink/red shade, and very thick and creamy. It reminds me very much of brandy butter in terms of its viscosity, and it is intensely moisturising when it is applied to the skin. It is absorbed in around 5 - 10 minutes, and while it is no substitute for prescribed products, it is very moisturising to dry skin, and makes it appear and feel much improved even after the first application.
A 200ml tub of the cherry body butter retails at £12.50, although a smaller 50ml tub is available for £5.00. I would have no hesitation in purchasing the Wild Cherry body butter in the future, although the Almond and Coconut varieties are still my favourites. The Body Shop body butters are expensive, but they do last many months and are a real treat to the skin.
I have a big drawer at home that is full to the brim of creams and lotions that people have bought me for birthdays and christmas. I try to do my best to try them all but sometimes when I find a product that I really like and works for me, I tend to abandon the rest in my drawer.
However this caught my eye, so I decided to give it a go.
It comes in a very attractive little round, red tub and has pictures of cherries on the front. It contains 50ml of the body butter, I'm sorry I don't know how much it was as it was a present.
Upon opening the product I found that it didn't seem as thick and creamy as I thought body butters were supposed to be, Infact it does has quite a runny look and feel to it.
The smell is divine though, I wouldn't say it exactly smells of cherries but it has a very intoxicating sweet smell to it.
I massaged a bit into my hands and found it to be a little bit greasy, with body butters i've had before I found that they don't leave much of a residue on your skin, whereas this one does, my hands still felt greasy after half an hour of using it.
It is a nice product but for me it wasn't something i'll use on a daily basis, infact I think it will be one of those things I keep just incase I run out of everything else.
I discovered the body shop online a few months ago. Normally I would not pay the body shop full prices. The RRP of this body butter is £12.50 but when they have their offers on I stock up on nice products and then save them and use them. The idea of the smell of cherry did not appeal to me particularly over the others, so I only bought this one when it was the only one left in stock on a special offer. I bought this and got a matching shower gel free-see the review on the wild cherry shower gel if you want.
The body butter comes in a round plastic tub. It is 250ml which is quite large and is big enough to look generous if you were to give it as a gift. It is red with a label on with cherrys on the front and a screw top lid which is easy to undo and do up even if you have greasy hands from the butter. I have never had any awful leakages out of the tub, which is always a good thing.
As soon as you lift the lid off the butter you can smell the sweet scent. It is not deep and bitter as I expected it would be, instead it is sweet and fruity. It takes me back to childhood days as it reminds me of cherry yoghurts, in fact it is the nearest smelling thing I can think of.
The body itself is more of a watery consistancy than some of the more oily butters, which is better for me as I don't like the oil slick left by the cocoa or coconut butters.
I have incredibly dry skin and so I apply this daily, and it makes the world of difference.
So... in conclusion. The body butter has a great smell (if you don't mind smelling fruity) and works well on dry skin. The only thing that needs to be improved upon is the price, but liek I say, if you stock up when offers are on, it is much more worthwhile!
I have very sensitive skin and most creams leave me with a lovely burning rash so i tend to stick to nivea cream on my face, put sea salt and a small amount of baby oil in my bath to keep my skin soft and don't cream my body.
However i was brought this as a present so i thought id give it a go, first of the smell is lovely and leaves your skin with a nice cherry scent on it that's not to over powering as some scented creams can be.
When i spread it on my skin i was ready and waiting for my skin to start burning, itching, getting a rash etc but surprisingly there was no reaction just smooth extra soft skin.
I have areas of very dry skin on my arms and iv tried every cream going to help it, iv even tried exfoliating it off and while it does help it never got rid of it completely.
But this cream is like a god send, withing a couple days of use the dry patches was gone.
There are a few downsides to this cream though, one being its quite greasy and i feel it takes a while for the cream to sink in.
Also you don't get much in the tub and when i searched online to order a new tub i was shocked at the price (£12.50) especially as the tub doesn't go a long way but i searched around on the internet and was able to get it for £7 on ebay.
I have struggled with finding a body butter that does what it says on the tin. But when I received this as a present I was really surprised.
It hydrates the skin for up to 24 hours and really leaves your skin feeling soft and silky.
I found the texture to be quite thick but it went on well and soaked in. I would only use this on the body as it is quite strong smelling and slightly greasy.
It is £12.50 for 200ml and I think £5 for the smaller one, which I think is quite expensive as the tubs dont last that long. I have to wait for birthdays etc so I can get my fix.
I would recommend getting the body scrub and using that in the shower before using the moisturiser. It finishes off any of the dry patches on your skin and leaves them smooth to touch.
I would definatly buy this for a friend or a family member and even my boyfriend loves it (but dont tell him I tod you!) lol
I recieved a tub of this for christmas. I love the stuff, it smells lovely but I can't bring myself to spend £12.50 on something for myself like that. I'd feel ever so guilt so I was very pleased when my daughter bought me some of this.
The body butter comes in a 200 ml tub. The lid has all red cherries on so you can clearly see what it is. It's a screw top and is fairly easy to open although it is smooth so if you put some on and then try to open it again, its hard because it's a bit slippy. The size of the lid and the shape of the body butter tub makes it easy for you to get the amount that you want out.
The body butter is a bit harder to rub into your skin compared to a liquid moisturiser like vaseline because it's thicker, but the results are beautiful cherry smelling skin that feels as soft as a babies behind!
I love to put this on after a shower, especially on my legs so they're nice and soft. It's best not to put this product on your face though because it is very greasy and would probably cause spots.
I have to talk about the smell of this stuff! It smells absoloutely lovely, I love it. Unlike cheaper products that are meant to smell like cherry's but smell like plastic, this smells like you have atub of mushed up cherries infront of you, its great!
Overall, I like this product a lot, love the smell and think the results are great. It is expensive but I think you should treat yoursef! I'm trying to make mine last, and so far after a lot of use I still have most of it left so I'll see if I can make it last till next christmas to see if I get some more. ;)
This is another review by my lovely mother lol. I'll be writing it but she will be providing all the information :D. I wanted to try this as soon as I saw it start appearing in The Bodyshop and luckily enough my husband bought me the whole Wild Cherry Collection which included this body butter for my brithday earlier this year. And because I had wanted to try it out for ages I chose to use it that very night in place of my normal Brazil Nut Body Butter from the same shop.
This product comes in a 200ml bright, cherry red tub which is really eye catching and I think its a really nice colour. The top of the tub has an image of a bunch of cherries quite similar to the other body butter tubs and has all the necassary information on the top of the tub. None of The Bodyshop products are tested on animals which means they are suitable for vegetarians.

I usually put this on just before I go to bed so when I wake up in the morning Im left with really soft and nourished skin but it can be applied whenever you feel your skin is feeling a bit dry. And I reckon it works even better if you apply it staright after a bath or a shower.
All you do is simply scoop some of the cream and then begin to rub into your skin whevever you want to apply it. I would say a little goes a long way with this cream because it is quite thick and if you apply to much it might not sink in so quickly.
This butter is actually really thick compared to most skin creams but I actually prefer that consitency to the runny style creams because I think it makes it easier to apply and it sinks in a lot quicker. This cream is a really nice pink colour and as soon as you open the lid you get a beautiful scent of cherries wafting out (but more on that in a minute). Even when you scoop a bit of the cream out with your hands you can feel how creamy and thick it is already which is really nice because I think that gives you an idea of how well it is going to work on your skin.
This cream actually smells like what it is supposed to. I have bought cream and body butters in the past that claim to smell like a certain fruit or nut and then you open the tub and they smell nothing like it but this one really does. It smells exactly like really juicy cherries, exactly like the ones you would eat and the smell lingers on you skin for at least a whole day after you have applied this cream.
Pretty much as soon as I applied this cream it had absorbed. I was shocked because I thought because the cream was so thick it would take ages to sink into my skin but I was shocked and happy to find that it sunk in almost straight away and didnt leave any horrible greasiness behind. I woke up the next morning to find that my skin not only felt really soft and smooth but it actually looked really nourished and fresh as well. The smell had lingered (and continued to for the rest of the day) but the thing I liked most was the smell was just a faint whiff every now and again when I moved rather than a strong overwhelming scent for the whole day.
Ive been using this throughout my pregnancy and Ive found that using it on my stomach as it has grown hasmade my skin a lot more supple and prevented me from getting as many stretch marks. It hasnt stopped them completely but I would say it has definately helped.
Price: A 200ml tub of this body butter will cost you £6.25 from The Bodyshop stores and online at their website which I think is great value for money because you cant really put a price on having really soft and nourished skin. Also the tub lasts for ages so you wont need to keep going back and buying a new tub every week.
I definately recommend this to every one who has tried other Bodyshop butters and loved them and even for those who havent because this would be a great one for your first try. It has a lovely scent and makes your skin feel fresh and soft and actually makes a difference in your skins appearance as well so its a winner all round for me. I recommend it for pregnant women as well who want to try and combat those stretch marks before they even appear!
