Every product from Neal's Yard I have used has had an amazingly strong and gorgeous fragrance that keeps you noticing the scent all day long.
This particular product I have to admit is my favourite. This is the geranium and orange body butter.
A little about the butter:

· Deeply nourishing

I was very attracted to the bright blue pots which are amazing as they actually help with keepng your products fresher for longer, the blue tint acts as a protector from the sun. Cool huh?
Once I opened the pot, the first thing I noticed was the grainy texture which bemused me a little. The scent was so gorgeous, it hit me as soon as I opened the lid. Some may think it could be on the strong side but personally I think it is amazing.
I scooped up a little and applied to my arm, noticing straight away that the grainy texture actually turned into a great oily butter that spread across my skin and absorbed really well.
My skin felt so soft after use and the scent left behind was as good as a perfume. Or even better!
I use this when my skin is really dry as this gives a great moisture boost to my skin, even makes tight skin feel more relaxed.
As a bonus, it works really well as an after sun cream too which works really well. The natural oils help soothe and protect the skin.
I am used to body butters being buttery and thick, but this was more oil based, but instead of leaving a film on my skin it actually absorbed so well.
Certainly a different type of body butter that works exceptionally well and certainly worth the money in my eyes as you only need a little to cover your skin effectively.
There are other products in the geranium and orange range, including a gorgeous bubble bath which I shall review soon.
Personal opinion, a must buy!
