The Body Shop Floral Acai Body Butter Duo Review

My super dry skin always thrives for super heavy body butters and you can find at least 2 tubs of body butters at my place anytime. Mostly the body butters would be from The Body Shop. Having tried different variants Floral Acai is a new addition and I should say I like its formula and the duo concept too.



Description

The Body Shop body butters are the best of all I have tried so far and my dry skin loves it. I can't imagine a single day without these thick moisturizers. I like the concept of duo - one light body lotion for normal skin and a heavy thick body butter for dry area. However we tend to use up the lotion first as it is very light compared to the thick body butter as it gets absorbed easily. I like both the lotion and the thick body butter where in I use them for my body and feet respectively.

I feel almost all body butters from TBS are same except the fragrance and ingredients. Each one is amazing in its own way. That is what marks the difference and I am truly amazed with the number of variants they have come up with. The Floral Acai is a clean mix of fruity and floral fragrance [Acai is a kind of berry] that is so soothing and not too strong but the fragrance lingers around for a significant amount of time.



Likes
  • The Duo concept is really interesting.
  • The fragrance is amazing and long lasting too.
  • Super moisturizing.
  • Quantity worth the money.
  • Easily available.
  • Different variants available.
  • Keeps the skin moisturized all day long.

Dislikes
  • It would be great if they include a spatula to take the product out. 
  • Oily skinned girls might not need this heavy formula.
  • The Duos do not come in a smaller version hence not travel-friendly.

You can already see the cream[Dry Skin] dug out with lil naughty fingers while clicking these pics :( 

Price

The cost of The Body Shop Floral Acai Body Butter Duo is Rs.845 for 200 ml.


Verdict

A blessing and a must-have product for normal to dry skinned girls. Helps to retain moisture through out the day, even during winters. It finds a permanent place in my skin care routine and I am sure to try different variants as I have been doing all these days.

    1. Hubby prefers them than I do. I like the look as a decorative piece whereas hubby likes the smell. The entire house can be messy but it has to smell good acc to him. There are so many ways to use them - http://www.ehow.com/how_2312510_use-potpourri.html
