Limited Edition Blueberry Body Butter Hothttp://www.beautybulletin.com/media/reviews/photos/thumbnail/185x185c/a4/a5/9c/_blueberry-body-butter-l-1330500067.jpg
Hmm smelling like a basket of berries!
Body Shop is my favourite all-time beauty product, and when I received the LIMITED edition blueberry body butter, of course I was over the moon!
The body butter has more than 500 different types of berries in it and this is a FACT as you can smell the edible, sweet scent from a mile a way!
I almost confused the body butter for an edible spread, as my nose got lost in the tub!
The Body shop always delivers when it comes to their decedent body butters. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and moisturised, plus smelling GORGEOUS!
Unfortunately, my acidic levels don't agree with the scent and it doesn't smell as great on me as it does on others I have smelt, BUT my skin is so soft and looks radiant!
With this being a limited edition, you won't find the product in the stores after the expired campaign. SO go buy your own blueberry body butter and enjoy the wonders to your skin, before you regret losing out!
It may be a bit pricey for many, but it lasts long, as you don't use a lot, PLUS when you use the butter, you don't really need any perfume, so you are saving on this too!
Body Shop Special Edition Blueberry Body Butter
If you have tried any of the body butters from the Body shop, I'm sure most women will agree that they are absolutely DIVINE! That's why, when I saw there was a special edition Blueberry Body Butter I made my purchase immediately! This whole range includes a Shower Gel, a Body Scrub and a Lip butter. I also bought the body scrub which I will review next (sensational too!)
The Body butter 20ml goes for R140. It is an intensive, creamy all-over body moisturizer with a fruity blueberry fragrance that absorbs easily into the skin, to condition, soften and help prevent dryness.
After I applied this onto my skin, not only did my skin feel soft, silky and healthy, I smelt so delicious too, Not an overly sweet smell, just right.
I would really recommend you all go out and get this entire range before this special edition ends.
Did you know each pot of Blueberry Body Butter contains the oil from at least 500 blueberries?
As with all body butters, this has all the great ingredients that makes it such a delight to use, because it does exactly what it claims to. The butter is very thick, 9 hours after application I could still feel it on my skin. It doesn't absorb as easily as what one would think but it really penetrates the skin well and leaves it feeling well moisturised and soft. It is not something you would apply before getting dressed in the morning. I apply it at night, let it do it's work then in the morning it is all absorbed. The scent is very pleasant although not exactly a blueberry smell but more of a blueberry milkshake scent. The fragrance is not overpowering and does settle to a subtle soft scent after a an hour or so.
Another thing I find with this is not really suited for daily use, especially not in summer. It does feel like it traps heat and causes me to overheat and if I apply it in the middle of summer I sweat like mad. It affects the way your body naturally regulates its heat so to avoid the over heating and sweating, I apply this twice a week - one day I moisturise my legs and arms and the other day my torso. The Body shop lotions are good for in between light moisturising.
I had not seen this before and when I spoke to the shop assistant she told me that this was a once off limited edition body butter. However, I saw online that overseas this is released every winter so I am not sure how our stores will translate that. This has become one of my favourite scented body butters and I really will miss it if it doesn't return to our stores. I still quietly mourn the loss of the Wild Cherry body scrub.
At R120 for 200ml this is a bit pricey but then again you are paying for the quality of the product. The body butters last well because a little goes a long way. I would actually suggest buying this at a Clicks that stocks it, rather than directly from TBS stores because at least you earn clicks points. The LYB loyalty card is good but it does not match the points you would earn from Clicks.
