Last year, my friend gave me body butters from The Body Shop for my birthday and Christmas.
Here are the body butters. I received all the body butters except the bottom one, I bought that myself. For this post, I will review the third one from the top.
Where to purchase: The Body Shop and online at thebodyshop-usa.com
Price: $20 for 200 mL/ 6.75 oz
Thoughts: My friend told me once you use the body butter, you won't go back to anything else. For that reason, I tried to use my other body lotions before moving on. Also, I apologize for taking picture of used product. I wasn't thinking.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it does have a scent. I'm not too sure how cranberry smells like but this is pretty close. It is what I think about whenever I smell the product. I actually like the scent. I'm a huge fan of fruity scents. Secondly, the consistency is creamy and smooth. As I dip my fingers into the body butter, it softens and makes it easy to grab onto. Once I apply onto my skin, it melts into the skin. Now I understand why it's called Body Butter, it melts like butter. With that said, I have used other brands and they don't melt. I have not felt any lotion/cream like this. Now I understand why so many people are fans of this product. Third, I go through body lotion/creams quickly. Compared to most people, I probably apply more than I should but I like to moisturize from top to body. For that reason, it can get costly. Lastly, it's hydrating and long lasting. It's great for all skin types throughout the season. I can see it being thick for oily skin but you just need a minimal amount of product.
* Fruity scent.
* Made from natural ingredients.
* Creamy and smooth consistency.
* Easy to apply.
* Melts onto the skin.
* Long lasting.
* Good for all skin types.
* Good for all season.
* Can be costly.
Would repurchase: Yes!

Now I want to review the body scrub from The Body Shop. In one of my posts, I posted my haul from The Body Shop and it included the scrub. Couple of readers asked me about the scrub, but I couldn't respond without thoroughly using it. Now that I have used it for more than a month, I will review it.
Where can you purchase this: The Body Shop or online at thebodyshop-usa.com
Price: $10 for the mini-size and $20 for the regular size
My thoughts: I wish I could have said I loved it as much as the body butter, but I didn't unfortunately. It's a good quality scrub and did its purpose, but there were certain things I didn't like. The one I bought had black seeds that didn't dissolved. After I used the scrub, I would have all these black seeds on my body. It comes off your body with no problem but I noticed these black seeds were on the floor and wall of the shower. Maybe I'm just a messy person when it comes to the body scrub, but seeing it all over made me feel dirty. Okay, I might just be strange.
* It softens your skin.
* Good exfoliating product.
* Removes dead skin.
* The smell isn't strong.
* Smells good.
* Made from natural ingredients.
* It's not cheap, but at the same time, it's not extremely expensive.
* Black seeds everywhere.
Would I buy this again? I don't think so unless the other body scrubs have no black seeds.

I'm going to end this post with my recent crochet project. I made Kerochan from Card Captor Sakura that I got from Craftster Forum. I modified it to fit to my taste so it's not 100% the pattern.
