Ingredients list...

  • Satsuma essential oil - Moisturises the skin. Provides natural fragrance.
  • Shea butter - Has a high level of antioxidant vitamins a, e and f, which help protect and nourish the skin. Moisturises and helps soften the skin.
  • Cocoa butter - Is an excellent moisturiser that melts at body temperature, leaving the skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

The body butter is really creamy and abit oily - Not like those gel cream type of moist texture yet not so rich that it was hard to spread out on the skin.
After spreading and smoothing out the cream all over the body (I use this on my hands, arms and legs)... it feel creamy and oily on the skin.
It have that thick rich type of body cream texture after the body butter absorbed into the skin in room temperature, but feel rather nice in Air-con room. It does feel abit sticky if applied too much. (I have a case of overapplying body lotion/hand lotion on my hands... I love the greasy feel when I'm in air-con room at night)
Very hydrating, skin feel smooth and soft after washing off (I means in the shower the next day).
The scrent - It smell like "orange" with a hint of floral - (To me it smell citrusy orange scent -I love orange, so the scent doesn't bother me.) My sister said it smell like sour musky flowers(lolx at her description).

The amount I used on the above was abit much... so I spread it all over my both arms.

A little history of The Body Shop's body butter:::
  • The Body Shop's body butter was first launched in 1992
  • Born in, their founder Anita Roddick’s kitchen.
  • The very first Mango Body Butter was given its name by her daughter who, while making a piece of toast, simply said “It’s like butter…for your body”
