“Hello, my name is…” is a series of articles highlighting individual products in all their royal glory.
When I say body butter, I don’t mean Land O’Lakes smeared all over your body – I mean The Body Shop Body Butter. This life-saving body butter is the ultimate remedy to combat dry skin. The Body Shop Body Butter comes in a 6.7 oz. tub and is available in a variety of what I like to call “flavors.” Each flavor consists of different elements to really help reduce dry skin by nourishing it with vitamins and essential oils, plus protect your skin from the elements.
My favorites are:
Mango Body Butter with mango seed oil, which is excellent for very dry skin.
Chocomania Body Butter with cocoa seed oil, Shea butter, and honey for 48-hour feel-good hydration.
Coconut Body Butter with Community Fair Trade virgin coconut oil, perfect for normal to dry skin.
Sweet Lemon Body Butter with lemon seed oil that is high in anti-oxidants and Vitamin C that helps soften normal to dry skin.
Most of The Body Shop Body Butters contain Community Trade cocoa butter, which melts with body temperature and contains essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants for long-lasting hydration.
In addition to healing dry skin, another thing I love about these body butters is their ability to heal, calm, and soothe sensitive skin. My favorite for that is the Aloe Body Butter, great for comforting and minimizing reactions of sensitive skin with Aloe barbadensis, also known for its medicinal properties.
The Body Shop Body Butters range in price depending on its exclusivity – anywhere from $19 to $22 – but thebodyshop.com always has amazing deals, whether it’s buy two get two free or 50 percent off their entire site.
Tip: Maximize the aroma potential of these body butters by using their family products, such as body wash, body spray, and perfume to create longevity for your favorite aroma.
Trick: Combine your favorite body butters to create custom aromas like chocolate covered strawberries (Chocomania + Strawberry) and lemon meringue pie (Lemon + Vanilla).
