Summary
I got this because my young sons are obsessed with all The Body Shop scents and will go in store and sniff them all. They really enjoyed using it. I don't like the strawberry scent at all, so I didn't like putting it on them. I do feel it worked nearly as well as the Cetraben they have on prescription. Even though a little goes a long way, I do feel it's very expensive. The texture is lovely, soft, slightly whipped and easily absorbed.

Summary
I got a small tin of this product, like a free gift and I like the scent. It gives enough moisture, but not the best ever body butter on the market and it is a bit expensive too, if it is full price.

If you can buy this on sale it is okay but not at full price. Considering that the Body Shop is supposed to be all natural there are some ingredients which don't seem to be quite so natural. It smells quite sweetly strawberry and a bit creamy but it is far from being my favourite and for the price there are better products around.

It is absorbed quite easily and I find it quite good for feet and elbows too and do use it as a handcream at times as well.

Strongest points
Really strong strawberry scent that lasts all day,
Good hydration and moisture.
Weakest points
Takes a little while to absorb fully,
The smell can be a little sickly because it's so sweet,
Not the most affordable moisturiser out there!
Summary
A nice smelling, effective body butter, but with more downsides than you'd expect from a brand like The Body Shop and a price of £12.50, like stickyness and a sickly smell.

I haven't been purchasing from the Body Shop recently as I'm very disappointed with their products. Their fragrances have become very artificial smelling.
