I am currently in the fortunate position to have my three favourite body butters – this is what happens when your birthday is just after Christmas.
1. FCUK – Polished Body Butter
- Contains cocoa butter, johoba and almond oil.
- Is a thick cream and leaves the skin feeling slightly oily but leaves the skin looking healthy.
- Smells great – mandarin and osmanthus flower with creamy vanilla notes.
- £5.87 at Boots.
2. Soap and Glory – The Righteous Butter
- Contains shea butter and also vera – for ‘very dry skin’.
- Is the applied to damp skin. I usually put it on after a shower or before I go to bed. If you wear it to bed your sheets will smell of it which is nice.
- I really like this compared to the other Soap and Glory body butter. The other one I felt sticky on my skin. Whereas this one might make you swear ‘you’re wearing velvet’.
- £10.20 from boots but it is a 300ml tub – so it will last you a while. If you have dry skin like me then it it definitely a good investment. Boots usually have 3 for 2 offers also.
3. The Body Shop – Mango Body Butter
- Contains – Mango seed oil, community fair trade cocoa butter (all body shop products are ethically friendly) and sweet almond oil.
- It hydrates skin and leaves it soft and smooth. The exotic mango scent is simply lush.
- I have used the strawberry and the raspberry body butters in the past but the mango one is my favourite.
- This one is my favourite body butter but for a 200ml tub it is £12.50 – so it is a bit more expensive than the other two but a tub usually lasts me over a year.
- The body shop do gift sets a lot of the time so you might actually get more value if you buy one of the sets. The set I got for my birthday had soap, lip butter, shower gel, body scrub and the body butter. On the website it is £25 – for £10 more you can get all that extra stuff.
All the body butters I have mentioned are of a high standard and work really well with dry skin. The body shop website can tell you which body butter will suit your skin type though.
