I’m quite lazy when it comes to moisturising and body lotions. It’s only really summer when I start thinking about it (the whole concern about having to potentially get my legs out!), and previously when pregnant to try and avoid stretch marks. But having been reintroduced to The Body Shop lotions and potions at the Midlands Blog meet a few weeks ago, I was pleased to have been offered the opportunity to try out one of their body butters.
I think body butters are synomymous with The Body Shop – it’s one thing they’re well known for, and the version I have been using is pink grapefruit (or the amusing pamplemousse french spelling – that always made me chuckle at school whenever we were doing translation. Ok, maybe it’s just me that finds it a funny word).
The simple packaging reflects as usual, The Body Shop’s ethical stance towards materials and ingredients. I’m a bit partial to pink grapefruit (it’s my favourite juice, but can’t much at the moment as it’s supposedly not good with warfarin), so using this body butter has given my hit. I find the butter really soft and smooth, it goes on easily without needing to use lots at once. I also find it’s absorbed quickly into my skin, leaving it feel really smooth and soft even a few hours afterwards.
The body butters from The Body Shop are definitely a good, kind way of rehydrating the skin. They’re intended to provide hydration for up to 24 hours, and I can see how they would if you used them regularly. All I need to do now is keep them away from N as he does have a tendency at the moment to try and use my make up, so if he spots this he’ll be trying to use it like face cream.
There are loads of flavours so perfect to pick and choose according to your mood.
As N’s a bit old now to be using baby lotions and butters on him, I’ve been given three of The Body Shop’s Buriti baby butters to giveaway instead. These body butters are paediatrician checked, so there’s no worries about using them on your baby. Perfect for baby massage or straight after a bath.
