The Body Shop strawberry body butter reviewΒ 

Hi there, 

                Today I am going to review a product from my favourite brand i.e. The Body Shop. I first tried the Born lippy strawberry lip balm and since then I have become a fan of TBS. Recently I bought the Strawberry body butter and I am loving it πŸ˜™.  

The Body Shop strawberry body butter

Product description : 

This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in, to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Trade Shea butter and has a sweet strawberry fragrance. 

How to use : 

Massage into the skin. Be generous. It works even better after the bath or shower. 

Shelf life :  3 years. 

Price :  INR 1150 (for 200 ml / 192 g). 

My take on the product : 

The body butter comes in a wide plastic tub with a screw cap. Texture of body butter is creamy, thick and really like butter. Color is light pink. Fragrance is sweet and strawberry likeπŸ“πŸ“πŸ“. Very pleasant. ….yummmm….πŸ˜›. On application it feels like I am applying some strawberry cream on my skin. Makes me want to eat it. 

Fragrance stays for good 3-4 hours after application. A light hint of fragrance remains even longer. In fact, I am right now sniffing it off my skin 😁. 
Moisturises very well and a little amount is enough for whole body. It does not feel greasy at all. I live in Central India and the Spring here is quite warm. Still, I am using it in March. No feeling of stickiness. 

My skin feels soft and smells heavenly. It has become my HG body moisturiser. Muaaahh….πŸ˜πŸ˜™πŸ˜™.

Pros : 

  1. Moisturises very nicely. 
  2. Gets absorbed fast. 
  3. Very beautiful fragrance. Feels like eating dessert. 
  4. Buttery texture. 
  5. Non greasy. 
  6. Beautiful packaging. 

Cons : 

  1. High price. 
  2. Contains preservatives. 
  3. Tub packaging is not hygienic. 

Overall rating :  9.5/10 (Highly recommended).

Will I repurchase : 

O yeah……I am definitely going to repurchase it. 

Thanks for reading. Stay happy. 


Dove Gentle Exfoliating Bodywash reviewΒ 

Hey friends πŸ™Œ, 

                           Here I am. ..again with a review πŸ˜‰.  This time it is a bodywash from Dove. I have been using Dove soap, on and off, since my childhood. I love the moisturisation they provide, but hate the slimy feeling they too provide πŸ˜₯. I once tried Dove Deeply Nourishing Bodywash and it hasn’t had that slimy feeling. So when I saw this Dove Gentle Exfoliating Bodywash I decided to buy it. 

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Bodywash

Product description :

This bodywash contains Exfoliating beads which provide gentle exfoliation and Nutrium moisture for nourishment of the skin. It is enriched with skin-natural lipids which get absorbed while you shower. Promises more beautiful skin in the long term, if used daily. 

Shelf life :  24 months.

Price :  INR 160 (for 190 ml).

My take on the product : 

The bodywash comes in an oval shaped white plastic bottle. It has a flip top cap which closes tightly and there is no chance of spillage. Bottle is quite travel friendly. 

Bodywash is creamy in texture and white in colour. Consistency is slightly runny. It contains tiny blue colored exfoliating beads. 

Lathers very well. But smells like a detergent. Neither unpleasant nor very pleasant. Skin feels soft on regular usage.

Pros : 

  1. Exfoliating beads do their job well.
  2. Pocket friendly. 
  3. Makes skin soft on regular use. 
  4. Travel friendly packaging. 
  5. Does not dry out skin. 

Cons : 

  1. Contains plastic beads which pollute water bodies and are dangerous for aquatic life. It’s a very major con according to me.
  2. Not suitable to be used ‘down there’ as it contains plastic beads. 
  3. Smells like detergent. 

Overall rating :  7/10

Will I repurchase : No.

Thanks for reading.
