We all are aware of the fact that a woman’s best friend in winters is a good moisturizer, so is mine. And I am glad to have found Grace Cole body butters. They are so apt for winters. Grace Cole is a newly-launched brand in India from the UK and I am happy that it is here for its products are really good.
Grace Coles Fruit Works range comprises of the finest fragrances and luxurious formulations. A perfect present for a friend or loved one. This delicate scent lingers gently on your skin, while the moisturising formulations make it ideal for everyday use. Scented with our strawberry and kiwi fragrance, this set is designed to relieve your senses as well as condition and nourish your skin. A very fruity fragrance with pineapple, berry and invigorated by a sparkle of refreshing orange.
Approximately Rs. 650 for 250 ml.
My Take on Grace Cole Strawberry and Kiwi Body Butter:
If one sentence is sufficient for the review, then I should simply say, “I love it.” It is very moisturizing and smells so great. It also claims that it is free of parabens, so that is another plus for me.
The moisturization provided by this body butter lasts for at least 6-8 hours. I apply it daily after shower and my hands and legs stay moisturized till the evening. I then apply it only next day after shower, so I can say that it gives 24-hour moisturization.
The biggest plus is the fruity smell. I love the smell. The fragrance lingers on for some time, but that’s sufficient. It is creamy in texture or rather I should say, it is buttery in texture, quite like the Body Shop’s body butters. It immediately gets absorbed into the skin without making it look greasy.
It also feels very light on the skin and the fruity smell, wow, that’s an icing on the cake.
Overall, I am quite pleased with it. If I compare it with The Body Shop’s Cocoa body butter, I would say it is not that moisturizing as the TBS butter, but nevertheless, this one is a good pick.
Comparing it with TBS Body Cocao Butter:
The reason I am comparing these two is that the TBS one was my all-time favorite body butter and both of them are almost of the same price, hence a comparison is quite natural. TBS gives better moisturization but it does not feel as light as this one. Also, it does not smell fruity at all, it smells cocoa(ey) 😛
Thus, if you need heavy moisturization, pick TBS, else go for this one!
Pros of Grace Cole Strawberry and Kiwi Body Butter:
- Very moisturizing.
- Apt for winters.
- Smells fruity and thus smells great.
- Moisturization lasts for close to 8 hours at least while I personally feel you need to apply it only once in a day.
- Feels light on the skin and gets absorbed fast.
- Free of parabens.
Cons of Grace Cole Strawberry and Kiwi Body Butter:
- Nothing that I can think of.
Go, get this one.
