I have tried quite a few body butters and rich body lotions, from a variety of different shops, as I have very dry skin that requires a lot of moisturising. The range of body butters from The Body Shop are very good quality. They are quite expensive, retailing at £12.00 for a tub containing 200g, but they can often be found at a reduced price in the sale, usually half the normal price. The mango body butter has a delicious fruity tropical fragrance, and really seems to smell of fresh mangos, and is great for the summer or to take on holiday. The body butters are available in a smaller size of 50g too, for £5.00, and these sizes are perfect for holidays, short breaks and if you just want to try it out. I found that the body butter is very thick and feels rich and luxurious. It is easily applied to the skin and leaves it moisturised, without a greasy residue. You don't need to use a lot, so a tub should last quite a long time. It is very good for dry skin, and especially areas like elbows and knees, that tend to get very dry and rough. The Body Shop products are not tested on animals, and they support Community Trade, ensuring that producers receive a fair payment for ingredients such as, cocoa butter, sesame oil and shea butter.
