Body Butter Favourites // The Body Shop

Anyone who knows me, knows how I am with my body butters and moisturizers. And if you don't know me, well, then I'll tell you: can't live without them, can't go a day without putting on any, and sincerely, I don't want to. There's nothing better than getting home from a work day, taking a long hot shower, and putting on a moisturizer afterwards. It's relaxing.

So, when I discovered The Body Shop a couple of years back, I went bananas in a span of minutes (by bananas I mean nearly broke). Let's just say that nowadays I realize that walking into the store was the biggest mistake of my life. And at the same time, the best. 

What I love most about The Body Shop is how natural everything is, how great the products smell and how amazing they are for any body part. Generally, when a brand is good at a category, it lacks in another. And I can safely say that this is a brand that is pretty much good at everything they do: from make up, to skincare, to hair products, to perfumes, to body care, to anything really. 

I have to be honest and say that I own a small TBD collection - and I'm obsessed with it and most of their ranges. But what I really love the most definitely has to be their body butters. They do wonders to my body and I've seen a major improvement in my skin ever since I started using them. They're my go-to, sort of holy grail items. And they're also pretty much a staple in any beauty regime: I don't know if you've noticed but everywhere I look there's always at least one of their products randomly standing there (is it just me?).

I think one of my favourite things is how much it focuses on a single ingredient, rather than mush alot of scents together and hope for the best, as most brands do.

No matter how drying my skin gets, no matter the weather changes, it seems that it banishes any harm done to the skin. Each scent is strong enough to stay on the skin for a few hours, which is what shocked me a little bit at first - I wasn't used to it and I always get the best compliments when I've used one of them on me that day (always hours later), and while the texture takes some getting used to, it's not greasy at all, a little goes a long way, and it absorbs quickly onto your skin. Seriously, what more can you ask for?

In case you've never tried any of their body butters: there are alot of sizes, and the mini one is perfect to carry around in your bag. Believe me when I say this though: they soften, moisturize, smooth and hydrate any type skin. You don't know which one to get? Ask the lady at the counter, they're always magnific at helping me out. The only downside? It's so good it almost makes you want to eat your own arm. Or buy the whole store. Or both.

I don't use them on their own: their body scrubs are just as good (if not better), but that'll be a post for another day, so you keep your eyes out for that.

I had a hard time picking out my two favourite body butters, but the White Musk Libertine and the Papaya Body Butter are the two I reach for in the morning or at night on a daily basis. They make me feel absolutely fine as a woman as I feel they both have the smell that I'd appreciate on another person as well. And I mean, usually if you like it on someone else, it means you'll like it on yourself as well right?

I'm naturally a floral and fruity scents kind of woman, which is what these two remind me of. So basically, they're perfect. Even if everything else I own are just as perfect.

Do you own any The Body Shop body butters? Are you as obsessed as me? Which one are your favourites?
