The Claims
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
The Reality
The Shea Body Butter is a very thick and rich body butter. However it absorbs into the skin easily without feeling greasy or heavy. A little goes a long way and you only need to use a small amount of product. 

The body butter has a lovely light nutty scent, which is not overpowering. 

This is a great product for any skin type but for dry skin in particular. The Body Shop do a number of different flavours of body butters and the shea butter is one of our favourites. 

The Price 
The Body Shop: £13/200ml 

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4.5/5

Have you tried The Body Shop Shea Body Butter? Or any of the other Body Butters? What's your favourite scent?
