Hola Bonitas.. 🙂
December is almost upon us and our fellow east coast people are already experiencing fierce snowfall and storms even. Hope everyone stays safe and enjoy winters in good health. As I said I love winters for number of reasons one being glowing skin so here I come to share another body care regimen today from our much loved brand The Body Shop. TBS recently launched their couple of limited editions and regular editions which are hit among all, for that perfect festive theme. Moreover, I recently picked their Fijian Water Lotus Body Care Range along with couple of makeup items, which will follow up on IMBB super soon. Till then let’s talk about The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus today.. 🙂
Price: $ 20 for 6.7 Oz (200 ml and 192 g), I bought it for $12 it’s usually available on 20-50% discount throughout the year.
Product Description: Escape to the island paradise of Fiji where we discovered a breathtakingly beautiful water lotus. We carefully hand-picked these flowers and created this delicate and unique scent with water lotus notes and frangipani accords for a breeze of fragrance straight from the Pacific.
- Fresh aquatic-floral scent
- Leaves skin feeling softer and smoother
- Buttery texture
- Layer with other Fijian Water Lotus products to build the fragrance
- Enriched with community fair trade shea butter
Packaging: This thick white body butter comes in the usual tub packaging with the water lotus theme. It has strong over powering aquatic floral smell, with hint of masculine notes which makes it a keeper for guys as well. Even my hubby likes it more than myself. Other than its strong seductive fragrance (which lingers on for almost 8-10 hours) there is no other concern with this product.
My Experience with The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Butter:
Like any gal I am also fan of the Body Shop products since they make really amazing bath & body products. Moreover, they support community fair trade ingredients like honey, shea butter apart from following “No animal testing”.
Talking about this Fijian Water Lotus Body Butter, I won’t say it is the best Body Butter I tried so far,however, it has a unique seductive-sensual smell and I haven’t come across such fragrance before. I feel it makes perfect festive winter product especially for Valentine’s Day evening and Christmas, New Year eve parties and so on because its strong overpowering floral-masculine notes which linger on for 8+ hours. I feel this Fijian Water Lotus Body Butter screams Fiji beaches and romantic candle light dinners, which make me feel like planning a trip to Fiji or Hawaii. But then after parenthood, these destinations only seem possible in our dreams and the reality is that we only find solace in those pee & poo diapers and messy smell from our carpets & houses.. lol 😛
The texture of body butter is like any usual TBS body butter, quite thick yet fast absorbing on skin with gentle massage strokes, leaving behind shiny hydrated skin for good 6-8 hours along with sensual seductive floral scent as well. I feel it gives me well moisturized skin for good 6-8 hours alone while I do need to apply it twice on my elbow and feet for moist soft skin. To my surprise I apply it once post shower, and it gives me a strong floral aroma, which is easily recognizable by people around me, for as long as 5-6 hours.
I feel this floral body butter, especially its masculine floral smell, is not everyone’s cup of tea as I myself feel hesitant using it while visiting my daughter’s school or my doctor visits… 😛
However, it will certainly hit our spouses/ BF tastes, as I can see my hubby using it more often. Personally I won’t pick it again since I love sweet subtle floral fragrances.
Pros of The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Butter:
- A fresh aquatic floral scent infused body butter which also supports community fair trade shea butter
- It is against animal testing and hence cruelty free product
- It is intense buttery and luscious in texture to give soft, supple skin apart from sensual fragrance
- Our skin feel well moisturized and soft for good 6-8 hours
- It does take care of very dry areas of our knee and elbow skin very well
- It is fast absorbing and does not leave any oily residue behind
- The sensual aroma is apt for our male partners apart from making it a hit among females
- The overpowering seductive smell is very apt for winters and romantic evenings for couples
- The smell lingers on for good 6-8 hours there by leaving traces of floral aroma which soothes and refreshes our senses
Cons of The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Butter:
- Tub packaging might be a turn off
- The smell is not everyone cup of tea
- Its chemical formulation list might be bothering for few
- It does not treat over dry skin tending to eczema
IMBB Rating: 4/ 5.
Will I Repurchase/ Recommend The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Butter?
Well I feel this particular body butter is most loved by my hubby and he is happy to get it again, while I am not convinced to try it again. May be I will try another variations of TBS body butters.
Overall, I would recommend this body butter to gals who are more into sensual seductive aroma unlike sweet aromatic body butters. It can also be used by our hubbys/boyfriends etc., hence it’s a win-win product for everyone in family.
