Review: The Body Shop - Satsuma Body Butter

I actually forgot I had this body butter! Its the 50ml pot so quite cute. The Body Shop is quite well known for its various body butters, they have different levels of intensity for normal, normal to dry and dry skin types. This particular one is for normal skin. 

Moisturising - This is a very thick moisturiser, as the name suggests it is more like a butter than a cream. It is very moisturising and I would even go as far as saying it is more suited for normal to dry skin. I wouldn't use this on my face as it leaves a bit of a residue, for the body however this is great. If you have dry elbows and knees you may need to opt for a more intensive body butter.

Scent - Has a slight bitterness to it which you would get if you were to zest an orange peel. It's not horrible, overwhelming or overly bitter though.

Packaging - While the pot with screw off lid serves its purpose I do have a couple of issues with this, when you have slippy hands its difficult to close the jar. Also I prefer a tube with a flip lid, this means I can easily squeeze out the amount I need and it is more hygienic. I really don't like sticking my fingers in products and getting too much product on my hands and under my nails.

Repurchase? I would consider repurchasing, the scent is nice, the product is nice and if you can get it with 50% off then the price is more than nice! However The Body Shop have a wide range of body butters and I am keen to try out most of them.

The Body Shop have this guide to help you pick which body butter you may like to use.
