I love fragrances in almost all the products that I use and at times, I buy stuff just because they tingle my olfactory nerves. I can never have enough of lovely fragrances especially when it comes to body butters, lotions, soaps and shower gels. So lovely ladies, here goes the review.

Use all over to help soften, heal and tone even the driest of skin or as a spot treatment to rough patches such as elbows and knees. Apply liberally to skin wherever it needs intense hydration and to lightly fragrance with Lavender Woods – a calming blend of fresh picked lavender vanilla and white woods.
My Take on ULTA Moisture Intense Body Butter – Lavender Woods:
It has a pleasant fragrance. The fragrance of lavender is not distinct. To be more specific, the fragrance can be described as a mixture of talc and shea butter. The fragrance is distinct for about 2 hours and then it lingers on the skin for around 4 hours.
This body butter is very light on skin. It moisturises the skin well without leaving any oil or greasiness behind and doesn’t clog the pores. The consistency is quite thick, but it spreads smoothly and evenly on the skin.
During winters, my skin tends to get dry and a little flaky in the area around the mouth and this body butter helps in moisturising my dry skin without making it greasy.
I am not sure if this would help in extreme cold weather for extremely dry or flaky skin, but it is an excellent product for humid climate where one badly needs body butters that are light and non greasy.
Pros of ULTA Moisture Intense Body Butter – Lavender Woods:
- Light and non greasy.
- Doesn’t clog the pores.
- Pleasant fragrance that lingers on the skin.
- Moisturises the skin well.
- Wide variety of fragrances to choose from.
Cons of ULTA Moisture Intense Body Butter – Lavender Woods:
- It isn’t a heavy-duty body butter, so it won’t survive extreme cold weather.
- It isn’t available in India 🙁
- A little expensive for the quantity, (but the current offer is tempting).
Will I Buy ULTA Moisture Intense Body Butter – Lavender Woods Again?
Definitely I will and I will try other fragrances, confused as there is a lot to choose from.
