      Advantages

      • "Effective Moisturiser"
      • "Nice fragrance"

      Disadvantages

      • "Too Expensive"

      Effective, But Way Too Pricey!

      I got this Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae Body Butter as part of a three pack of 200ml tubs for a birthday gift (they were purchased at Sainsburys). I had never heard of the brand so I searched the name online and was shocked to find out this is rather expensive. I had recently bought some other body butter from a Poundland and thought that they were quite similar in style and substance! However, these 200ml sized Nip + Fab tubs sell for almost £10 although a smaller 50ml version is also available at only a few pounds.

      The product comes in a pale green plastic tub which mimics the actual colour of the moisturiser. It looks a lot like a Bodyshop Butter in terms of packaging design and presentation. The brand market this cream as a "dry skin fix" and it's suitable for use all over the body.

      The moisturiser is slightly paler green in colour than a real pistachio nut and it is very thick in substance. To use this moisturiser is a pleasure because it's so dense and velvety in texture. It really smothers the skin and it feels luxurious and protective. It's definitely a product that is best used in the colder months as it is rather heavy on the skin.

      It is absorbed well into the skin and is very effective when applied to drier areas in particular. I enjoy applying to my knees, feet and arms. The cream can easily be applied to more sensitive areas of thinner skin such as the breasts or tummy without needing to rub a lot. It does not have a greasy base but it leaves skin feeling peachy soft and springy. Formulated with a 24 hour hydrating system called "Aquaxyl™" it keeps my skin looking and feeling good as long as I need.

      The fragrance of the body butter is very nice and is one of those products that you almost want to taste! It's a buttery, creamy, nutty blend that is extremely pleasant and which can be detected on the skin after use. It's a feminine scent but I also think some people may not like the fragrance as it's rather unique.

      This product is an effective moisturiser with a nice fragrance but I feel that it's somewhat overpriced for what it offers. I also have found very similar products that cost but a fraction of what this costs! Although I am happy to have recieved it as a gift I would not purchase it myself due to the high purchase price.

      This is a rich body butter with a creamy nutty aroma.Keeps skin nourished

      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.

        Me and my daughter shared it

        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!

        Description
        Boots describe this product as: A rich and creamy body butter fragranced with a subtle sundae scent, that helps repair dry + de-hydrated skin.

        In use
        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.

        Price
        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.

        My thoughts
        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.

        Final word
        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.
