Texture / Fragrance

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Body Butter have thick buttery texture. This body butter have quite strong fragrance for me, but the scent of sweet almond milk is quite pleasing for me.

Result, My Thoughts, and Experiences.

This The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Body Butter is really moisturizing, but it takes a while for it to fully absorb into the skin like other body butter. My skin really feels moist when using this body butter but there is an initial greasy feel sometimes that goes away once the moisturizer dries.

My body skin is not dry skin type and I live in tropical country that has high humidity, so I use the body butter for knee, elbow, and any other area that need higher moisturizer.

I think this body butter will suitable for dry skin and sensitive skin. I used to buy The Body Shop Body Butter for my late grandmother before I starting write this blog. She is really enjoy this body butter because it can help moisturize her dry skin peeling without make her feeling itchy. (she was in her 90s, and skin becomes more sensitive as we get older, right? She is really enjoy The Body Shop Body Butter, even though I don't always buy the Almond Milk & Honey varian for her)
I really recommended this body butter for someone that has dry skin or living in a place where the weather is very cold. For those who live in tropical country or somewhere the humidity is high, I more recommended use their body yogurt version which I have previously talk about on this blog too, or you can just click here to read the review.
