ON THE SPOTLIGHT: The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter

     I had been eyeing this for months now. Why? Because it was love at first smell. LOL! My olfactory nerve loves it so much, my brain was aroused. What kept me from giving in was the price, i think its unreasonably overpriced for Php 695 a piece. I convinced myself that it will be on sale in no time and yes, i was right. The Body Shop always has their annual half the price sale. 

What the actual product look like.
How much product you'll get.
To whom is the product for.
More labels...
     I've tried this already a couple times now, and still i'm obsessed with the smell. The smell lingers on my skin for a decent time but doesn't lasts all day like other body butters would. It's super thick so it really moisturizes your skin especially my skin. I'm suffering from a recent skin allergy and this body butter saves me from dry, flaky, gross skin. 

     What i hate? I'm not a fan of the sticky feeling it gives you after slathering onto your body. And when i say sticky, dang sticky! Maybe because it is still summer but i'll try to use it when the colder months is here. 

     Will i repurchase? NO. I mean it pretty much does what it suppose to do but I REALLY HATE THE STICKY FEEL it gives me. And i think other body butter brands would do the same minus the eeky feel to it.

  4. Hey!!! I loooooove this smell too, but similarly hate the after-feel. I hate lotions in general but these body butters aren't exactly wear-friendly. It feels gross and sticky on my clothes/sheets after!

    1. True! Try Myra E Lotions, my skin absorbs it pretty fast. So no, sticky feeling. :) Thank you for dropping by! <3
