I loved the smell of this sort of creamy nutty. It was not so strong that it overwhelmed me but I did love the smell on my skin when I sniffed my arm.It is a good thick body butter a bit like Body Shop in consistency but I find this is more quickly absorbed than Body Shop''s and it feels lighter when I apply it to my skin, not gloopy at all. I have been impressed with this Body Butter and find it really does help keep my legs moisturized even in winter when my skin does get very dry. I think this compares very favourable with Body Shop''s body butter and is a better price in most places I have found. It comes in a recyclable green plastic screw top tub , again just like Body Shop''s body butters . I like these tubs as you can see exactly what you have left and you can get every last bit out of the tub too. It does mean you must use clean hands so you don''t add any nasty germs to your cream. Nip & Fab say that the body butter will help repair and keep your dry skin moisturised for twenty four hours. I can''t say if this is true as I bath night and morning and re apply each time so mine gives me a good twelve hours. The smell is not so in your face that you cannot happily wear any perfume as the scent calms down once it soaks into your skin. I would highly recommend this and it makes a good alternative to Body Shop when there Body butters are not on sale.
When I saw this pot of green body butter in my latest beauty box, I was not keen at all, due to the colour and that it was Pistachio which I would never choose to buy (that's why I love these boxes) but I had heard of the Nip + Fab brand and knew a lot of people were raving about it so I decided to give it a go. As soon as I unwrapped the seal and opened the pot I was hit with a buttery cookie smell that literally made my mouth water!
Boots describe this product as: A rich and creamy body butter fragranced with a subtle sundae scent, that helps repair dry + de-hydrated skin.
The body butter is a nice consistency, it rubs on quite thickly but sinks in to the skin well. The sweet aroma does stick around for a while but disappears within an hour so you are not wafting that biscuit smell around for all day. Moisturising properties are great in this body butter and my skin which has seen some sun over the last few days has needed a decent moisturiser.
Boots are selling a 200ml version for £8.49 but I have also seen a travel version of 50ml (the same size as my pot) for just over £2.50.
Whilst I love the moisturising properties, I really can't say I want to go around smelling like a biscuit! I can even pinpoint the exact kind: a white chocolate fresh large cookie with nuts in it. Having said that, between us me and my daughter have used the whole pot up in just a few days so it can't be that bad but it's just the smell that I think gets me, it totally smells like it should be eaten rather than rubbed in to your skin.
I have spotted an orange tub of this in Boots, Mango I think, which I am planning to try, at least the travel sized version. I do believe these to be very high quality ingredients and a great brand. To me this doesn't smell nutty, more like a cookie (with nuts in it!!). A good point though is the consistency of this body butter, it's not too thick, nor is it too runny, so just the way I like it. The travel sized pots are great too as they are enough for a weekend away and super for skin that may have seen a bit too much sun, at least the green may help neutralise the redness a bit if you are 'glowing'. Price wise I think it is priced fairly for the quality of the product. Probably not a repurchase for me but only because the smell makes me want to go and eat biscuits.
