I love body butters, a must-have in winters. Here, winter is gone and spring has arrived, but the temperature goes down below 10 degrees in the night. By afternoon, it’s in the range of 15-19 degrees and as such my skin is a bit confused. If not moisturised properly, then overnight, it tends to dry.
I picked up the Body Shop Body Butter Duo – Sweet Pea some time back and am glad I did because it’s perfect for this weather.
This twin pot contains two types of moisture: a light cream for where skin needs less hydration and a rich cream for drier areas like elbows and knees. It has a sweet, floral scent.
My Experience with The Body Shop Body Butter Duo – Sweet Pea:
I love the dual section provided in the tub. It’s like yin-yang. One section has the body butter for normal skin and the other for dry-skinned areas. The one for dry-skinned areas is thick and creamy and the other one is thinner. However, both are very good at moisturising. The smell is delicious, it’s a mildly sweet floral smell. What I liked best about this was that it gets absorbed well into the skin and keeps it hydrated and moisturised for a good part of the entire day (around 16-18 hours). Because of the weather here, I need to reapply it before bedtime. It doesn’t make my skin greasy or weighed down like some other body butters do and added plus point is the lovely baby pink colour 🙂
Pros of The Body Shop Body Butter Duo – Sweet Pea:
- Pleasant fragrance, I love it!
- Good hydration which lasts for long.
- Gets absorbed well.
Cons of The Body Shop Body Butter Duo – Sweet Pea:
- The smell, though I love the smell, I am disappointed that it doesn’t linger on for long. Wish the staying power of the fragrance was longer and a little stronger scent would have been good. Again, this is my personal opinion.
- A bit pricey. I can get a good body butter for half this one’s price.
£12.50 for 200 ml tub.
4/5, I would have had no complaints if the fragrance was a tad bit stronger and if it lingered on for longer after application.
Will I Repurchase The Body Shop Body Butter Duo – Sweet Pea?
I am in two minds. I liked it as it works well. However, like I mentioned, I have used other body butters priced better than this. Probably, if it comes on sale on the Body Shop site, I may stock it up.
