Although I don’t moisturise as religiously as I used to, I will admit that I am partial to a decent sized body butter or body moisturiser. After a shower there’s just something so soothing about rubbing in a gloriously scented thick cream until the skin and feeling how hydrated and soft your skin feels afterwards. I’ve had this one on my shelf for a while since I was using up the Frosted Cranberry one before, here’s my thoughts on The Body Shop Passionfruit Body Butter.
Like all body butters from The Body Shop, this 200ml body butter comes in a large plastic tub with a lid that screws on and off. I have noticed that these body butters have crept up in price so a 200ml body butter from The Body Shop will now set you back £15.00 which is just shy of a MAC lipstick! For the amount you get though I consider these to be mid-range in price.
I’m going to jump right in and talk about the scent of this one. I am a huge passionfruit scent lover, I’ve gone through the Grace Cole Passionfruit and Guava Body Mist and I have repurchased and used up The Body Shop Born Lippy in Passionberry so I was really excited for this body butter.
This butter has a scent that I am on the fence about, to me it smells more florally like passionflower which is of course a huge difference to the juicy, fruity scent that I was hoping for. I did also find that this is one of those scents that sticks in and tickles your throat, my boyfriend has asthma and whilst he’s fine with me wearing perfume and using lotions and bath bombs, this is one of those that makes him cough so do bear that in mind.
Onto the texture of this product, as you can see by the photo above it has a very thick cream texture. I will say that this doesn’t absorb into the skin super quickly however, once it has absorbed it won’t leave you skin feeling greasy for hours which is one of the things I like about The Body Shop’s body butters. I also like how this leaves my skin, it doesn’t give me that insta-softness that something from Lush does, but it definitely hydrates and softens my skin and I have noticed since I’ve been using this more that I’m not getting as many dry patches.
Would I repurchase? Overall, I do like The Body Shop’s body butters however, I’m not overtly keen on this scent. This isn’t horrendous so I am trying to use it up but I think I’d pick a different scent next time, I’m really keen to try the Honey and Almond Milk which sounds incredible, plus the Japanese Camellia cream does also have me curious. This Passionfruit scent isn’t available all year round so if you are keen to try it, keep your eyes open around autumn time as it does tend to come back out then!
The Body Shop Body Butters are available from The Body Shop for £15.00.
