The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter Review

My skin, as I have always mentioned is kind of difficult to understand. My facial skin is quite oily to combination, while the skin of my body tends to get very dry. I require body polishes and lotions or creams that can actually hydrate my skin for long time. What can be better than body butters? I have already shared my love for body butters here

Although I have enough body butters, I decided to get my hands on a Limited Edition one from The Body Shop and it is the Vanilla Bliss Body Butter.

The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter

This body butter is from their winter Limited Edition Range, made with vanilla extract and community fair trade cocoa butter.

Price: Rs. 1295 for 200 ml.(Got it on discount)

Packaging: The The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter comes in a cream coloured tub with the image of a vanilla flower on top.

Product: It is a thick off-white coloured cream that looks like real butter.

My Experience: The 1st thing I like about The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter  is its smell. I love sweet scented body butters and this does not fail to impress my olfactory senses. The consistency of the product is quite thick and it takes some time to get absorbed. But when it does, it hydrates the skin so well. The skin actually stays hydrated for the whole day.

It feels smooth and soft and even after a whole day of application, it remains soft. Although it is mentioned that it is for all skin types, I guess people with oily skin may find it a bit greasy. Overall I am very satisfied with the product and would definitely like to repurchase if available.

1. Very moisturising
2. Keeps skin hydrated for hours
3. Skin becomes soft 
4. Skin gains nourishment from regular use
5. Lovely fragrance that stays for a very long time

1. May be too greasy for oily skin
2. Some may not like the sweet smell
3. Very expensive

Rating: 4.5/5

The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter is a very nourishing body butter that I will recommend to all who suffer from dry skin. If you want to smell sweet the whole day this is a product for you.
