Review: Creamy Almond Body Butter 200ml

After my Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Body Butter finished review here I was on the look out for an Almond Body Butter at a lower price point. One afternoon browsing the body care shelves at Boots I stumbled across this…almond body butter
Hmmm it looked promising I immediately removed the lid to smell it and see theconsistency of the butter. It did smell good for a £6 body butter so I decided to throw it in my basket and give it a whirl.

As I applied this thick butter it felt very creamy without being greasy which is great when you are in a rush in the mornings and need to get dressed as soon as you’ve finished applying.

The smell is lovely however as soon as you’ve applied you can’t smell it anymore 😦 this I find disappointing as the Laura Mercier Body Butter last’s and last’s and I constantly get stopped at work throughout the day to be asked “what are you wearing you smell lovely” I shouldn’t compare this as the price points are completely different.

All in all this is a nice body butter that does it’s job and keeps my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day. I wouldn’t rush to re-purchase (sorry boots) however I will enjoy using it all up.

Butter me up!

A good all round Body Butter, a bit if an old classic that really works. Palmers Cocoa Butter Formular has been around since the middle of the 19th century but under its current ownership since 1971, we all seem to have memories of this cocoa Formular mainly down to it’s rich cocoa smell.

20130707-145707.jpg This concentrated Formular derived from the cocoa bean also contains Vitamin E.

20130707-145950.jpg The cream is satisfyingly thick and creamy with a rich chocolatey aroma you either Love or hate.

20130707-150214.jpg It’s easily applied and obsorbes really well with no sticky residue. Even though the level of moisture is high the finish is matt (there are glossy versions available) personally I love the smell and do not find it over powering, more comforting. If you dislike the smell Palmers have a fragrance free version and also a line of olive oil based products, a coconut oil line and a Shea butter line.

20130707-151025.jpg This handy 60g tube is great on the go in your handbag and it’s a really good after sun moisturiser, or perfect in winter for dry elbows/knees.

20130707-151325.jpg All in all I do like a bit of Palmers Cocoa Butter from time to time but have to say if I was to use it daily I fear I would get sick of the smell. I use it occasionally or use it on my knees elbows ankles and between my fingers before I apply a gradual tanning product.

Palmers have a very wide range of skin care from basic moisturisation to glistening glosses to gradual tans, and it doesn’t stop there they have a whole facial skin care range too.

Palmers are also PARABEN FREE and against Animal Testing.

Vanilla & Bergamot Body Butter

This utterly delicious Vanilla & Bergamot body butter is almost good enough to eat!
Without a sickly sweet smell it will turn the scaliest skin smooth. Containing coconut oil and vitamin E it deeply nourishes and leaves skin highly moisturised with out a greasy feel. The scent is not over powering and lasts all day and makes you feel all warm inside. An all te favourite of mine and a cult beauty product. I slather it on after showering with the Vanilla & Bergamot Soapy Suds.
