The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Butter Review

Helllooo my lovelies ๐Ÿ˜€
What all did you haul from TBS sale this season?? Ehh come on now! Donโ€™t pretend you didnโ€™t. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This part of the year specially TBS always gives an amazing sale with replenished stocks and including goodies people actually want to buy compared to their dismal winter sale. -_-

I was hopping mad when I saw so many of their best-sellers and tempting things on great offers like 30% off on chocomania deluxe range, and on their atlas mountain rose, amazonian lily, body lotions and EDT s and so on :โ€™( I have to save for picking up some things on my upcoming Europe trip :-/ *my mother will club me to death if I ask her to buy me NARS or Benefit* so sobbing hard *inwardly of course* I picked up a few things among which was this Sweet Lemon body butter I had meant to get for so long. <3

What TBS claims:
Hydrate and protect your skin with an intensive, creamy and fragrant all-over body moisturizer with luscious lemon seed oil that will leave skin delicately scented with an uplifting citrus fragrance.ย  Best for normal to dry skin.ย  Lemon seed oil is high in anti-oxidants and Vitamin C and helps moisturize and soften the skin.ย  Community Trade cocoa butter, an excellent moisturizer that melts at body temperature, is rich in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants.ย  Community Trade shea butter from Ghana moisturizes and softens skin.
Price: Now a whopping 995 INR for 200ml :O :O like really? Is this body butter or body gold, ๐Ÿ™ย but I got it on discount so I have a lesser heart burn. ๐Ÿ˜›

My take on the product:

The body butter comes in a typical huggee round tub which looks and feels extremely attractive for the color-coded and graphic effect. ๐Ÿ™‚ย like if you see sweet lemon and apply it at the same time, I dunno but you get more of a feel. ๐Ÿ˜€ Owing to its bulk though it can be a pain to travel with. ๐Ÿ™

The texture is creamy and quite light compared to the other body butters like shea or chocomania which I have tried and I guess thatโ€™s because this entire Sweet Lemon range is targeted at the summer season. ๐Ÿ™‚ย It is extremely smooth and creamy to apply on dry skin and sinks in quite fast ! In our humid summers though it is a bit heavy for me as I donโ€™t have very dry body skin. I need just a dab to spread over an extensive area and it is hydrated instantly.

The smell *floating around- not the smell, I am floating around in glee!!* is my favorite aspect of this entire range and the biggest reason for me getting almost everything of this range. ๐Ÿ˜€ It smells of freshly squeezed preservative free lemons with a slight bitter twang to it which somehow is an important foil for the sweetness otherwise it would have been cloying. ๐Ÿ˜ย The breezy burst of lemon instantly fills me with calmness and contentment and I am happily sniffing away my arms and the smell BTW lasts for a long time.

The hydration effect lasts me the whole day in this season even excluding the need of my usual night regime of a body lotion! The smell sadly does not last that long *obviously* and is solely the reason why I reapply sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜›

The pros:
  • Color-coded attractive tub packaging <3
  • Smooth, creamy texture, a little goes a long way and hydrates, plumping the skin instantly <3
  • The smell is 1 of my favorites from TBS, a fresh burst of sweet lemons with a slight bitter hint making it all the more fresh and zesty!
  • The moisturizing effect lasts the whole day on me and I never feel the need to reapply ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Huuggee quantity! I can probably never finish ๐Ÿ˜›
The cons:
  • Very bulky tub makes travelling a pain ๐Ÿ˜ก *bye bye body butter for my trip :โ€™(*
  • Expensive!! *TBS is getting cut-throat day by day :x*
My Rating: 4/5
Do I recommend?
Heh ๐Ÿ˜€ Well seeing that Sweet Lemon range is 1 of the best-sellers I hardly have to recommend anew, ^_^ but I still will of course. ๐Ÿ˜› The smell, the moisture, the generous quantity where you need a teeny bit, the perfect summery feel and now what with 30% off- you just canโ€™t go wrong with this! Do pick the whole range up on sale!!
The swatch!
