Battle of the Body Butters!

Body butters come in a large range of scents, brands and sizes etc.. and as I have acquired quite a few different ones I thought I would do a mini post on which one is essentially the winner and best of all they are all small prices!

Body Butters

1) Superdrug Coconut & Sweet Lime: As you may have read from a previous review I love this body butter for it’s tropical fresh scent and packaging, it’s also currently on sale for £1.98 instead of £3.99! The only disadvantage compared to the others is it’s large size, it’s 200ml so isn’t exactly compact but it does have a usage span of 12 months.

2) Tesco Extracts Cranberry & Pomegranate: This is quite different to my other butters as it is purely a fruity scent which makes a nice change and at 50ml is a nice compact size. It’s usage is longer than Superdrug’s at a whopping 24 months. This was a gift which also came with a shower gel.

3) Tesco Extracts: Honey & Shea Butter: This was love at first sight, the butter smells gorgeous and was in a nice little set for £2 with a shower gel, again it is 50ml with a 24 month usage period. The only problem I find with Tesco Extracts is that the scent doesn’t appear to last long unless you use the shower gel with it.

4) Boots Extracts: Cocoa Butter: Another great scent which seems to last and has the same ml and usage time of the Tesco butters, this again was in a gift set with a shower gel which I brought in January, currently it will be on the 3 for 2 on the Boots Christmas guide.  In comparison to the other pots however it’s label doesn’t look as appealing.

And the winner is….

Superdrug Coconut and Lime Body Butter

Superdrug takes the crown with the refreshing scent of coconut and lime!

Although all the products are cruelty free which is a bonus I feel Superdrug’s labelling and scent stands out much more  although I would recommend all the products reviewed.

What’s your favourite body butter?

Leafy & Lovely Hand Lotion Review

Leafy & Lovely are an exclusive brand to Superdrug and can be found in the Christmas gift aisle. Items range from bath to hand to homeware products. I picked up the hand cream to try which is in a 100ml bottle and cost £2.

The scent is quite pleasant and fruity, it isn’t overpowering and has a ‘zesty boost’ from grapefruit and lime for a citrus scent. The product overall smells quite fresh and the hand lotion itself has a good consistency and isn’t too heavy or runny like some creams can be. I adore the packaging as it’s quite simplistic but fun and as the brand states lovely.

It is cruelty free which is always a bonus and the 100ml bottle is sure to last throughout Winter! Although the size isn’t exactly compact for travel it is still a great item to use at home as your hands are left feeling so soft thanks to the element of shea butter.

I hadn’t heard of this brand until recently and wondered why as the products smell great and have a nice small price tag; whether you are buying for yourself or a friend I definitely recommend you pop to Superdrug and pick up this brand! 

Unfortunately this brand is only available at Christmas.
