Tried and True: Body Shop Body Butter

10 Jun

I have used many, many body moisturizers, and I am sure that trend will continue until I am well into old age. Still, it’s good to have a go-to, and the older I get, the more I realize: The Body Shop Body Butter is that go-to.

I can remember receiving my first Body Shop product from my cool Aunt Anne – a kiwi flavored lipgloss. At the time, there was no Body Shop store anywhere near my parents’ suburban home, so that lipgloss was more than just a cosmetic product to my pre-teen mind: it represented adulthood, a cosmopolitan life I could only imagine.

Now, having lived in places like Washington, DC, and Seattle, I rarely venture into the Body Shop. The constant sales and overeager sales staff put me off, even though I still respect it as a brand. There are just so many other products in the world to try that I often forget about my old friend TBS.

Recently, for one reason or another, I was reminded of their Body Butter, and I am glad I was. It’s even better that I remember – soft, smooth, sweetly scented, and easy to dispense. The tub design beats pump or squeeze dispensers all to hell, especially when you’re just out of the shower, moisturizing your whole self. The variety of gourmand scents – and even a couple flowery ones – is so fab I can’t even choose a favorite (today I’m wearing Passion Fruit). My only complaint is that they regularly discontinue scents, oftentimes my favorites, and replace them with others. But this seems to be my lot in life – or at least in the cosmetic world – so I guess I shouldn’t hold them responsible.

Anyhow, synopsis: Body Shop Body Butters good! Love them, always have, always will.

    Body shop is a well known shop when it comes to body butter. That is why every product they produce will became popular when the consumer starts to used it. Because i think they keep their skin smoother and yet using it feels like a luxury.
