As I had told you all in my ‘Mega Drugstore Haul’, I had picked up a few Grace Cole products. I have already reviewed the other 3-4 products and this is the last one from the lot. I just picked one body butter because I wanted to give their body butters a try and this is my beloved flavour. What could be better than watermelon and pink grapefruit for a fan of fruity fragrances? Let’s see whether this worked for me or not!
Our fabulously fruity Body Butter absorbs quickly without leaving an oily residue. This seriously hydrating cream will leave your skin soft and delicately scented with a sparkling citrus accord of juicy pink grapefruit.
Directions for Use:
Massage thoroughly into skin after bathing.

My Experience with Grace Cole Watermelon and Pink Grapefruit Body Butter:
Okay, I am guilty of picking up products that are good looking. It is my weakness and I pretty much don’t want to overcome it! 😛 I have already reviewed the body wash from this range and now is the time for the fatty body butter! It comes in a super gorgeous, hot pink coloured tub. Doesn’t it look catchy? It was like an eye candy at the store. I just couldn’t take my eyes of it, so I got it along. The tub is loaded with body butter, so I wouldn’t be comfortable carrying it around. It has cute little pictures of juicy fruits over it that add spice to the packaging.
There is an entire range available that includes shower gel, body scrub, lotion, body mist and body butter. Hold on, I am eyeing the rest of the products from this range and I think the reviews will be up soon. When at first I opened the gorgeous tub, I could feel the smell all around in my room. It has a deliciously fruity smell of watermelons and pink grapefruit. I feel the pink grapefruit pretty much dominates. It just revived my senses and I was super excited to smell like a juicy fruit! The fragrance will be apt for fruity lovers and not the floral lovers. So, sniff it before you buy it.
The body butter is white in color and the consistency is thick. But, less thick than the The Body Shop body butters. It glides on smoothly on the skin, but gives a little greasy feeling on my skin. But yet, it gets absorbed in 4-5 minutes and the greasy feeling fades away. A little quantity is required since you will be a factory of cream, if you use more. It hydrates my skin nicely after shower and the fragrance stays on my skin for just 1 hour. I was already upset with this brand for making products for very low staying power. If totally went in an hour and I did not smell amazing like before.
Also, the body butter has to be re-applied after 4-5 hours on my normal skin. I think for dry skin, re-application might be needed in 2-3 hours. Overall, it was a decent one and great for summers too as you smell fresh and summery. But for winters, I would rather stick to TBS body butters.

Cons of Grace Cole Watermelon and Pink Grapefruit Body Butter:

• The tub is damn fat and heavy to carry around
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Grace Cole Watermelon and Pink Grapefruit Body Butter?
It is a delicious smelling body butter, but the smell goes away within an hour and I don’t smell like a juicy fruit any more. You guys can sniff it before getting it because this fragrance will not suit everyone’s liking.
If we talk about body butters, the first thing that clicks the mind is The Body Shop. I would prefer those any time over Grace Cole butters. At least, I can smell amazing and fruity the entire day by using them. Nothing actually can beat TBS body butters in the race!
