Hello Ladies, Hope you all had a great Lohri/Sankranti/Pongal. Here is a review on a product from my most favourite skin care brand, and that is The Body Shop. I was introduced to this brand by IMBB and I fell in love with it trying out so many products and they have rarely failed me and here is another winner. I have already reviewed the Cranberry Body Bath and Shower Gel here on IMBB. Today, I am reviewing the body butter that I got along with it.

Massage into the skin and allow to sink in before dressing.
Before moisturizing slough away dead skin with one of our amazing Body Polishes and Scrubs.
Approximately Rs. 1000 for 200 ml. I also saw the small tubs of this for Rs. 515.
200 ml 6.7 OZ (192 g).
Comes in the standard Body Shop body butter tubs. The butters are thick in consistency and cannot be packaged in a tube. I do not like the tub packaging, but have to compromise for the product’s quality. This cranberry range comes in a pretty red colour packaging as it is a Christmas-special range.
My Experience with The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter:
I love the fragrance of this body butter. It is neither too strong nor too mild. The texture is just amazingly soft. It glides onto the skin like butter. The cream is of light pink colour. I generally prefer body lotions to body butters because I feel the texture is too thick and it gets greasy when applied and takes a lot of time to get absorbed completely. This has happened to me with a lot of body butters from The Body Shop. Surprisingly, this one is not greasy at all. It gets absorbed quickly and leaves a soft finish on the skin. The fragrance lasts all day. These are not easily available in India throughout the year, but just during Christmas. I grabbed the entire cranberry set again this year.
Pros of The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter:
- Excellent fragrance.
- Not very thick like other body butters.
- Easily absorbed.
- Not greasy.
- Fragrance lasts all day.
- Leaves the skin smooth and silky.
Cons of The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter:
- Non-availability in India.
I found the shower gel and body butter from this range still available in some stores, so get yours before they go out of stock. :dance:
