Yes, until last year, I was a The Body Shop virgin because as much as I wanted to try their body butters, I always thought they were too pricey for me - come on, why would I want to pay $18 for a 200ml body butter that I can find at the drugstore for half the price? But that was until I came accross an irresistible 3 for $30 offer on the whole The Body Shop website, which led me to order a few of those mystical body butters.
The first butter I decided to try was the Shea Body Butter as it is designed for very dry skin and from what I have heard, it is claimed to be the thickest and most moisturizing of all The Body Shop body butters, which turned out ot be absolutely true - it is truly a little worker on my eczema! After that great experience, I was eager to try another of their butter, but I can't say I was exactly pleased...
As I used up the last bit of my Burt's Bees Aloe & Linden Flower After Sun Soother, the weather was getting colder and I always favour heavier body creams in the winter, so I figured out it was the perfect time to try another The Body Shop body butter that I have bought last year, and I chose Mango because it is also designed for very dry skin.
The Mango Body Butter does not smell synthetic to me - but then again it is not something that usually bothers me, as long as it's done right - it actually smells like fresh ripped mangoes, yum! I can smell it on my skin a few hours after applying it, but it does not linger all day or overnight.
