Want something to moisturize your body this winter? Read my review on The Body Shop Shea Body Butter.

Shea Body Butter
This super-rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and has a delicious nutty scent. 24-hour hydration Great for very dry skin Delicious nutty scent

My thoughts
To start off, I am besotted with the floral, nutty scent it has. For some, it might be a bit too overwhelming but for me, it’s pure bliss. I am so fixated with the fragrance that I got myself a soap and a shower cream from the same range.

The body butter has a solid texture that spreads easily with fingers and applies like cream. Before now, I was applying it the wrong way by rubbing my fingers across it superficially. The correct way to apply the product is to scoop out some butter on your fingers and spread it over your skin. This not only makes my skin feel soft and smooth -- works especially great for arms and legs -- but also keeps it hydrated for many hours. It seems to work great for winter. I am not sure if I will be using it in summer as I fear it might feel too heavy for hot days.

By and large, this product delivers what it claims. I love it and my sisters seem to like it too. The only thing that might keep you from trying it is the hefty price though I think it’s quite justified for the amount you get. It comes in a 200 ml tub that will last you a whole season.

You might like it if…
  • You expect it to moisturize your body for a good time.
  • You are head over heels with scent.
  • You are happy with the amount you get.
You might not like it if…
  • You find the scent too strong for your taste.
  • It makes your skin greasy in hot days.
  • You think it’s pricey.

What do you think about it? Tried it?


  1. An intensive, creamy all-over body moisturiser. It absorbs into the skin easily, helping to condition, soften and smooth the skin and prevent dryness.

  2. I love this one! I have a mini tub that is my saviour in the winters! Love how it looks in the pictures haha. Feel like dipping your finger in it just to ruin the pretty-ness lol

  3. I buy body shop products only once a while, when i feel like splurging.

  4. it is looking so beautiful to me.. nice picks sara :)

  5. This is such a beautiful stuff, i remember when my moms hands got dry i used to do the message on her hand with it. :(

  6. It might just be me but I liked the old Body Shop packaging better, lol. Their body butters are just yummy. :)

  7. It looks great! Will surely buy this :)

  8. I can't imagine my life without body butters in winter months and TBS body butters are among best . Like you I am in love with this scent .
