REVIEW - The Body Shop - Body Butter DUO - Vanilla

Hullo Ladies!

It's been awhile since I've reviewed a body butter from The Body Shop. 

I've loved with them for a long time now and have grown a pretty big collection. 

This is going to be a review on one of the Body Butter Duo's. 

I own the Vanilla version, which I received for free with a purchase I made online back last year. 

This is the only Duo body butter I've tried so I couldn't comment on the others in the range but I have to say I love the idea of them. You have one half of the butter that is for dry skin and one that is for normal (less dry) skin. So they're great if you find yourself having to use are range of different lotions for different areas of your body e.g. legs, elbows, arms. 

The thicker butter is for dry skin and the lighter butter is for normal skin. I use the thicker version on my arms, elbows and knees. Then the lighter lotion for the rest of my body.

I really enjoy this body butter, I don't find the scent to strong or headache inducing. 
It's sweet and fresh. 

It's great for dry skin, really helps to soften elbows and knees. 

The hydration lasts for at least 24 hours so I like to apply it every night before bed as it can take some time to sink into your skin. 

This isn't one for rubbing on in the morning, getting dressed and running out the door. Due to it's deep moisturizing qualities I'd say it's best to be used at night before bed. 

I really like this duo body butter and will be having a look at the rest of the line.

Like I said though, this did come free in an online order back last year so make sure you look out for those special deals the body shop like to do.

Have you tried any of the Duo Body Butters? What did you think of them?

  1. Love vanilla scent. One of my favourites in body lotions :)

  2. I actually wished the scent was stronger....I love the scent though I just liked it more in the perfume oil. But it was fun to layer! For some reason I thought they were discontinuing this too. Great Review!!

    1. Maybe thats why I like it so much, it's not too strong. Vanilla can sometimes give me a headache if it's very strong. It's definitely sweet enough for me though :-) Ohh I haven't tried the perfume oil. I have the edt though which is great for winter. Looking online I think they might have hun, which is depressing. I did see a few of the duos left in the store on the weekend but It didn't look like they were going to re-stock. Such a shame :-( Awhhh Thanks! x

  3. This sounds yummy! I agree with Roxy though, I love a strong scent haha.. but that's just me ;)
    Must check this out next time I'm in The Body Shop! xx

    1. Try layering it with a vanilla fragrance to get the best out of the scent :-)I'm the same hun, I hate it when you pay for something that smells yummy and then is gone in 10 minutes! This butter is strong enough for me though, it doesn't give me a headache but keeps me smelling sweet for hours :-) Hope you find it hun! xxx
