The Body Shop Body Butter Trio

Well..this might not be a great season to write a post on Body Butters but my dry skin and to top it all this TBS Body Butter Trio Body Butter set,a gift from my best friend could not stop me to go ahead and write an epic about it ;)
Body Butters are creams formulated with rich ingredients that is luxurious and thick and which has all the properties of butter, but is not greasy.It is a moisturizing cream that is intended to provide optimum amount of skin hydration. It is made from a variety of substances, including plants oils, nut butters. Filled with essential vitamins and nutrients, body butter provides a natural and healthier way to nourish the skin.

Quantity: 50ml/1.6OZ/48g
Ingredients: A long list indeed..
Price: It was a gift from my best friend (somewhere around INR 1000/-..I guess,not sure)

Packaging: Well this is the section I was curious to write about.Since this trio was a gift set,the packaging looked like a gift every bit.All the three tubs came in a sturdy and beautiful white metal tray with the measurements just appropriate to accommodate the three tubs.The carving on the tray reminded me of the Mughal architecture.The tray can be used to store other things as well :)
Coming to the packaging of the body butter,its in the same TBS trademark plastic tubs with the screw caps,the colours of the tubs represent the fruit,flower etc.it boasts to be made up of.

My Take:
This Body butter trio set was a gift from my best friend.She got me this from Dubai and it became my first experience of body butters.The moment I saw it ,I fell in love with the tray packaging and after opening it,I was mmmmmmmm.... swept away off my feet by its smell fragrance.A small review of each following:
Moringa: Moringa is considered to be the most nutrient rich plant on earth. Moringa leaves have been consumed by Asian people for millennia as a healthy food product. Containing more than 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants, these vivid green leaves are nature’s super-power food.This is my personal favourite of all the three.It smells DIVINE (yup,in CAPITAL LETTERS). The moment I unscrew the cap,it takes me to some other world (Now I'm on a hunt for a perfume with similar floral notes).I can write an epic on just the fragrance of it,but as of now...let's move to the other one!
Strawberry:This comes in a deep burgundy tub.The smell,the USP of all TBS body butters is very yummy and edible..kinda very sugared strawberries like.The colour of the body butter is soft pink,as if natural strawberries have been whipped with the butter..smells yum,feels yummier!!! Now moving to the third one of the trio:
Sweet Lemon: The colour of the packaging and that of the body butter of TBS Sweet Lemon is similar to that of Moringa one,though a little brighter.This as the name indicates has a citrus fragrance.It is very refreshing,the smell instantly opens up the mind and eyes.I specially like using this much before the winters approach as it appears to be a sorta cool fragrance,very summery kinds.

TBS Body Butters named aptly feel like butter on the skin.They are very moisturizing and get absorbed in the skin quickly leaving behind a wonderfully smelling youuu :) They are thick yet non-greasy,a boon for dry skinned beauties!

My Likes:
1.Smells divine.
2.Very Moisturizing.
3.Non-greasy.
4.Beautiful tray packaging.
5.Not tested on animals.
6.Unbreakable.
7.You can see how mush product is left in the tub.
8.Can be accommodated in the daily handbag.
My Dislikes:
1.Tub packaging might seem unhygienic to some.
2.A bit expensive.
Last Word: For a person with super dry skin,this comes as a Saviour. I love it!
Repurchase: Waiting for my bestie's another trip to India ;)
Over All Rating: 4.5/5
