I Love…Strawberries & Milkshake Body Butter

It’s been a while I haven’t written a review, but if you follow me on twitter/facebook, you probably know the reasons. The important is that I am back! (yeaaah!)

Today I would love to share with you my opinion about I Love…Strawberries&Milkshake which I’ve been using a lot lately. I have already reviewed the shower gel, and now it’s time to take the next step: the body butter. I was really excited to try it as it looked like a cheaper version of The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter.

When I’ve opened the jar for the very first time, I fell in love with the strawberry scent. Intense, sweet and different at the same time. It’s not the usual strawberry scent, but it reminds me of a drink, something like the Strawberry Daiquiri. Unfortunately, it doesn’t last long, just a few hours (a little bit longer if you combine it with the shower gel).

This isn’t a proper body butter, as it feels light as a whipped cream. That might let you down, if you are expecting a thick texture. It spreads easily on skin and gets absorbed quickly.

Did the ”whipped cream” texture scared you? Well, let me tell you that it perfectly  moisturizes my skin.  I don’t find it greasy, but every now and then it feels heavy and leaves an oily feeling on my skin. Can anyone tell me why this happens?

Last, but not least, the packaging is simple, made of a sturdy and lightweigh plastic. On the lid there is a pink sticker with the product’s name and the brief description. The jar contains 200ml and costs €6.90.

If I suggest it? Absolutely! I am going to order more scents from All About Eve(worldwide shipping). I am thinking of Vanilla&Ice cream, Coconut&Cream and Lemon&Lime. Any suggestions?

Have you ever tried I Love Cosmetics body butters? Do you like them? Which scents have you tried?

Double Review: The Body Shop Strawberry and Vineyard Peach Body Butters

One of my beauty obsessions is having soft skin. I am lucky enough and my skin feels soft even without any particular treatments, but I always use a body moisturizer once a day.

My favorite ones are The Body Shop Body Butters. Oh Lord! They are so rich, dense and moisturizing. As for their scents, it is certain that you will find at least one to fall in love with.

Lately I am trying the Strawberry and the Vineyard Peach Body Butters. Let’s start with the reviews.

 
The Strawberry Body Butter has a sweet scent. First time I smelled it I found it delightful, then I thought it has something fake. After three months, I still can’t decide if I like it or not. Sometimes it smells like strawberry to me, but others I think it has a strong chemical scent.
It is designed for normal skin and offers up to 24 hours moisturization. It is a rich and dense cream that gets easily applied and absorbed.
It contains strawberry seed oil, Community Trade shea and cocoa butter, ingredients that offer the long lasting hydration.

 The Vineyard Peach Body Butter is a limited edition. Oh girl! Go get it NOW! It has a heavenly scent, just like fresh picked peaches, that lasts all day long. It has a rich, buttery texture, just like all the TBS Body Butters, but it gets easily absorbed. It claims to offer a 24hour hydration and it totally does! It leaves skin super smooth and soft. It does a great work on feet and hard areas, like elbows or knees. I like to apply it every night before going to bed. It gives me joy, makes me dream and relaxes me in seconds.

If I had to choose one of these two body butters, I would definitely go for the Vineyard Peach. One of the best body butters I have ever tried.

The packaging is simple but chic and stylish at the same time. The jar contains 200ml of product and costs €15.

Now I want to try the ones from their Christmas collection. Have you seen them?

Have you ever tried The Body Shop Body Butter? Do you like them? Which scent do you prefer?

I’ ve tried… Chocomania Body Butter

Do you remember the post about Chocomania, the new line by The Body Shop (click!)? Well, last week I had the chance to win on a twitter giveaway and The Body Shop Greece sent me a sample of the Chocomania Body Butter.

I got a sample of 8ml, small quantity but enough to let me understand if the product works for me. The body butter left my skin moisturized, very soft and smooth. It is ideal for dry skin and perfect for those very cold days that your skin needs much more protection.

As for the scent, I didn’t smell like Chocolate to me. It reminded me of Shea Butter but not chocolate at all. Maybe it was me, because other beauty bloggers, like Natalie, do not agree with me. I read comments and reviews of bloggers who insist that the soaps and the lip butter smell much more like chocolate. I haven’t tried them yet, so I can’t tell you for sure.

Concluding, I liked the product a lot, even if it doesn’t smell like choco to me. I would like to try the Shower Cream and the heart-shaped soaps as well. I will let you know when I’ll get them!

Have you tried the Chocomania products yet? Do they smell like chocolate to you? 
Please, tell me it’s just me that doesn’t feel the sent…
