Review: The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

*Disclaimer: All products have been purchased by me for my own personal use.*

In March, The Body Shop was having a buy 1 get one half off sale online, so I decided o get my money's worth and get 4 products, since I had enjoyed their tea tree facial exfoliate. In this purchase, I bought the Tea Tree Facial Cleanser, Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion, the Mango Body Scrub, and the Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. On a note that is completely off topic: for the Body Shop to be such an environmental conscious company, they do waste a lot of paper in their packing materials!

For this post I will be reviewing the Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. In case you missed it the first time around, you can read my review of the Tea Tree Facial Cleanser and Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion.

 The description on the website says that this product is for normal skin, and is supposed to
"keep your skin super-smooth and soft." This product has a 4.8 out of 5 star rating on the Body Shop's site. I have been using this product for about three months now, and here are my thoughts:

First, there is the smell. I must admit that is does smell a lot like grapefruit. This is good an bad. It's good because it smells like it's supposed to. On the other hand, it is a little strong when you first put it on, so you will go around smelling like grapefruits for about 5 minutes after you put it on.

The texture is very smooth, but it is a slightly sticky, and a little greasier than I prefer in my moisturizer. As for moisturizing, it works pretty good, but, for me in any case, I had to put on a lot before my skin felt sufficiently moisturized.

Conclusions

Pros
  • Smells like grapefruit
  • Does an average job of moisturizing your skin
  • Has a smooth, creamy texture
Cons
  • The grapefruit smell can be a little strong and takes a few minutes to wear off
  •  The texture is a little sticky and greasy on your skin
This product is ok, but I probably won't be buying it again. It's not awful, but it's not great either, so I won't recommend it enthusiastically, but I will say if you want to try it for yourself, then go on ahead.
