Body butters

When it comes to moisturising, I love treating my skin to nourishing body butters and theses are the 3 that I currently have in my collection:

SPC citrus body moisturiser
Of the 3, this has the lightest texture. I'd describe it as a light cream gel, which sinks into my skin almost immediately to leave it soft and hydrated. It contains extracts of lemon, lime and orange oil and has a nice creamy lemon scent when applied to the skin. Because it's so light and refreshing, it's currently my go to moisturiser during the summer.

Aromatherapy associates enrich body butter
This was a giveaway prize from the lovely Charlie. It has more of a rich creamy feel to it, but despite the thickness, gets absorbed very quickly without any greasiness. It contains extracts of jasmine, patchouli and tonka bean, which together with the mattified container, gives it nice sensual feel. Great for use in the evenings!

The body shop coconut body butter
This has a true butter texture- hard in the tub, but melts on contact with body heat to become a thick cream. It does take a while to sink in, but once it does, it's super moisturising and I can get away with not applying body lotion for the next 2 days. It has a strong coconut vanilla scent, which can be too much if worn all over, but but it makes a great moisturising treat for my dry legs.

Have you tried any of these body butters? What's your favourite body moisturiser?

Disclosure- SPC citrus body moisturiser was a PR sample

  1. This was really useful! I've tried the Body Shop coconut body butter & it is a bit too thick for me, but I agree it is good for the legs!

  5. Dolly Daydream- I know what you mean, it's more of a sweet coconut scent. Soap and Glory is fab, you've just reminded me I need to pick up another pot! x

  6. I'm SO bad at moisturising my body, I have so many body butters and moisturisers that just never get used :(

  7. Rosie - Haha I'm sometimes guilty of that too. Body butters are great though as they're more of an intensive moisturiser so you can sort of get away with moisturising less often x
