the body shop sweet lemon body butter: review

Yesterday I reviewed The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Shower Gel and to use in conjunction with it I also bought The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Butter. In today's post I shall be reviewing the Body Butter.

The Claims

This 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 smells of fresh lemon.
  • 24-hour hydration
  • Great for normal to dry skin
  • Fresh lemon scent
The Reality
I can't seem to stand the scent of the sweet lemon range of products from The Body Shop. The smell of this body butter it's way too strong and using the sweet lemon shower gel in conjunction with this body butter makes me feel like I've just bathed in artificially flavoured lemon juice. The scent reminds me of washing up liquid or bathroom cleaning products. 

The body butter is thick and creamy in consistency and does take a little while to absorb into the skin and does leaves the skin a bit greasy for a few minutes whilst it is absorbing.

The body butter is moisturising and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated after use.

At £13 it is a little on the expensive side however The Boy Shop are always having promotions so I would highly recommend taking advantage of special promotion codes when buying any product from The Body Shop. 

The Price 
The Body Shop: £13/200ml

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?
No. Although I do love other flavours of The Body Shop body butters and will be continuing to purchase those. 

The Overall Score: 3/5

Have you tried The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Butter? What are your thoughts?

  2. I love the body shop but I find that a lot of their creams and lotions are too buttery. They smell way to strong and they're so thick that I end up looking really greasy.

    I highly recommend their shower gels though :)

  3. nice product with a good perfume..

  4. another great review :)

  5. I'm generally not that keen on Body Shop products, their scents are slightly too sweet and sugary for my taste and really not the sort of thing I want to be using on my own skin.

  6. Agree with you on this. The smell of this product is a bit too lemony and strong for my taste. Even I prefer Body Shop's shower gels and mists. I was in love with their Strawberry Body butter.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog. :)
