It's very important to keep your skin moisturized so I'm sure almost everyone has heard of the various Body Butters made by the Body Shop, but if you're one of the rare few who hasn't yet, then this post is your chance! Today I will be sharing four lovely body butters!
As you can see the packages are quite nice and clearly state what the moisturizer will smell like, which would be the reason you pick one body butter over the other! Its content is very creamy and rich, so the intense cream is perfect for any winter day or if you have a dry skin. Though it should be perfectly fine for a summery day if applied well in advance, because the cream blends in well with your skin and after a couple of minutes you won't notice it anymore. You'll only notice a soft skin and its delicious scent. The body butters are meant for your body, obviously.
