The Body Shop Almond Body Butter
A couple of years later my views haven't changed one bit.
The difficulty is however, deciding which butter to purchase as there's so many of them to choose from - Coconut, Vitamin E, Moringa (one of my faves), Mango, Strawberry, Olive...to name but just a few.
I must have stood at the shop for at least 20 minutes just trying to decide which butter to purchase for smothering myself with. At the end I allowed the price to be a deciding factor and opted for the Almond version as it was on sale for half price...oh and I do love almonds.
Almond body butter also contains cocoa and shea butter, making it extra moisturising and perfect for normal and dry skin types. The consistency is as with all body butters - creamy, soft and buttery - very easy to blend into the skin, easily absorbed and super hydrating. You can definitely sniff out the almonds in there but overall the scent is kind of sweet and reminds me of cake icing.
These body butters are great during the winter months and when making the transition from winter to spring as they really help to clear up and soften any dry and rough bits.
Do you have a favourite body butter from The Body Shop?
...on a different note - how do you like this bright pink from China Glaze? It has tiny particles of shimmer in it.
