Do you like to use lotions and moisturizers, but hate that greasy feeling that most of them leave behind? I know that a lot of the time I will put off moisturizing when I really need it because I don’t want to leave greasy handprints on the things I touch after using my hands to apply lotion.
In the winter especially I find that using a moisturizer after I shower really makes a difference in preventing dry or itchy skin. I had tried many different types of lotions, but I was never satisfied either with the greasy feeling afterwards or the scent (or both!).
I went to a Body Shop at Home party at one of my neighbor’s houses a few years ago. I am not really a girly-girl and I don’t use many “products, ” but I was able to try many things at the party.
I LOVED the Body Butter. There were actually several scents that I really liked, and best of all the butter itself was so light and non-greasy.
I ordered a few containers, one in Mango and another in Strawberry. The packaging is color-coded to match the butter, and it's not only attractive but handy when you’re looking for a particular scent. The Strawberry is a dark red color while the Mango is a light orange. The butter itself is also colored.
I use it not only for my skin’s needs but also to keep my cuticles moisturized. It sinks in all the way in only a few minutes and leave a long-lasting scent.
New scents are introduced a few times a year, although I’m partial to the fruity smells and tend to stick to those. There are different types of scents like Japanese Cherry Blossom, Coconut, Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Olive, Brazil Nut, Hemp, Strawberry, Mango, Satsuma, Papaya, Pomegranate, Passion Fruit, and Pink Grapefruit.
I’ve ordered mine online and gotten some sales, but you can go to a Body Shop store in many malls and smell/try the products. They come in a big size (6.9 oz) or a smaller size that’s great to put in your purse (1.7 oz).
As far as I know, almost all the products that are sold by the Body Shop are all natural, and many of them are made in other countries and some proceeds from the sales of these go to help organizations in these countries. I love the product so much that I think I might overlook these things, but luckily I don’t have to. It’s great to feel like I’m getting a great product and also buying something all natural and that will help people in all parts of the world.
