I remember when I was very little, my sister had bought me a rainforest soap pack from The Body Shop. The soaps were all different colours, and in the shapes of endangered animals. If I remember correctly, it was to help raise money to preserve them, but hey, I was lil, I could be wrong.
I know I reacted badly to the one colour, but the rest of the soaps were a dream on my skin. My eczema was much worse when I was younger, more of a whole body thing. So soaps and me didn’t much get along. Finding some that worked was great.
My sister started to get me more from The Body Shop, and I grew up knowing it was one of the places where most products would work for both my allergies and my Eczema.
I have used the Body Butters for some time now. I started using them more around when I turned 20, as I was in the food industry, and my hands would get super dried out with all the cleaning chemicals I used on the worksite.
I started carrying a 50ml canister in my purse all the time. I would normally have a bigger one at home, and a few more little ones. The Body Shop does this great thing every so often, and that is a buy 2 get one free sort of thing, so I would participate to try the different types.
Normally they make a scent collection, and then all the different products will share the same range, so if you end up really liking the mango lipbalm, chances are you will like the mango body butter. I really enjoy that about their lines.
I have never had a bad reaction to the body butters. The Ingredients for the most part are all things I can understand.
I currently own the aforementioned Shea Butter, as well as Fuji Green Tea, Mango, Vineyard Peach and Pink Grapefruit. I have some other ones, but they were limited edition series, so I wont mention them, as they aren’t in the stores anymore.
Mango was my favorite for many years, but last Christmas I got the Fuji Green Tea as a gift, and fell in love. It goes on with almost a cool tingle, which I think feels great. The scent is very light and fresh, so it doesn’t set my fragrance allergies off. Since The Body Shop makes products with a lot of natural elements, you might find that they don’t bother your allergies either. Another nice thing is that I find I only use it twice a day. It does what I want when I need it, and I don’t have to waste a lot of product constantly reapplying. The formula does what it needs to, and doesn’t leave you all greasy afterwards.
I really haven’t come across anything bad to say about this line. It is definitely worth my momey, in my eyes.
So if you are willing to try something new, be sure to put The Body Shop on your list.
