Want to hear my thoughts on The Body Shop Honeymania Body Butter?
If you read my review of The Body Shop Honeymania Bubble Bath Melt you’ll know how much I enjoyed the product and of course the scent and that The Body Shop very, very kindly sent me some other goodies to try, one of them being The Body Shop Honeymania Body Butter.
The Body Shop Honeymania Body Butter retails at £13.00 for 200ml which isn’t the cheapest but it certainly isn’t too expensive. The product its self is a thick, cream which has a very buttery texture about it, much thicker than any other body butter I’ve ever tried. When using the product I find I only need to use a small amount to do the job so the huge tub is sure to last me a while. Much like the case with the Bubble Bath Melt, I assumed because of the name it would have a honey like scent however it actually has a very rich floral scent which I really, really like and find uplifting. It is quite a strong, powerful scent and I know not everyone will be a fan of it but I find it is something I love about it as because of how strong it is, it lasts well on the skin and lingers nicely which for me is great after hopping out of the bath when I want to smell great.
I personally like to apply the product onto my skin right after a nice relaxing hot bath or shower to keep my skin hydrated and in terms of its ability to moisturise and hydrate the skin, it certainly works and does so well. When first applied it melts nicely into the skin. It is in no way, shape or form greasy which I was very pleased about but does have a slight sticky feeling when on. This soon disappears which is great as having to stand around in my towel for 10 minutes while a product absorbs and becomes less sticky isn’t something I enjoy doing but I find is usually the case with most body butters or even lotions for that matter but with the Honey Mania Body Butter, it takes a mere minute or two which is fab if like me you’re impatient or even in a bit of a rush. Once sunk in, my skin is left feeling soft and smooth. The Body Shop claim that the butter gives 24 hour hydration and I’d say this is more or less correct. It is probably worth mentioning that I don’t have particularly dry skin other than on my knees and elbows so I can’t really say how well it is for those who do have dry skin but it did moisturise my areas of concern well.
Again, like the Bubble Bath Melt the product contains Community Fair Trade Honey all the way from the Ethiopian rainforest which not only means the quality of the honey is top notch but because it is Fairtrade it means that the farmers and workers get better working conditions, terms and prices which is great to see.
