Review: The Body Shop Shea Body Butter

My skin condition can’t be considered as very dry, but early this year I have a problem with some dry patches. I don’t exactly know what happened, but suddenly I have some dry patches on my right arm. At first I think it will disappear after some time, but after 1 week I realized it still there and become more dry. I use anything to remove it, such as body scrub and body lotion. Until I decided to use this body butter. This body butter is suitable for a very dry skin.

From the website:
Best if you want to: Treat your skin to non-stop moisturization with a rich, intensive cream featuring the clean scent of shea.
Best for: very dry skin
How it works: Community Trade shea butter has antioxidant vitamins A and E to help protect and nourish skin. Community Trade cocoa butter is an excellent moisturizer that melts at body temperature, leaving skin soft and silky smooth.

Water (Solvent/Diluent), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) (Emollient), Cocoa (Theobroma Cacao) Butter (Emollient), Cyclomethicone (Emollient), Glycerin (Humectant), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (Surfactant), Cetearyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Babassu (Orbignya Oleifera) Oil (Emollient), Beeswax (Emulsifier/Emollient), Lanolin Alcohol (Stabiliser/Emollient), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Fragrance (Fragrance), Methylparaben (Preservative), Propylparaben (Preservative), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Caramel (Colour), F D & C Yellow No 5 (Colour).

My opinion:
Unlike the body lotion, body butter is more thick and creamy. The butter is thick when first applied but it will sort of melts as I rub it in. it is absorb quickly and a little goes a long away. The scent is nice and slightly sweet. I don’t use this on all over my body, I only use a little on my dry skin area. After use this for almost 2 months, my skin condition is become better, my dry patches are slowly reduce and back to normal skin. It does a perfect job of moisturizing and keep my skin feels healthy and fresh.
Price: IDR 169.000 for 200 ml
