My Favourite Body Shop Moisturiser

I have tried many, many body moisturisers in my lifetime, but one that I always go back to since I discovered it many years ago is The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter.  It is such a pleasure to slather all over my body.  I don't think I get as much joy from any other moisturiser as I do from this one.

What makes it so great?  Well, if you're a fan of coconutty scents like me, you will love how soft and sweet this smells.  It has a mix of nutty (kind of like hazelnut?) and cocoa aromas.  So gorgeous!  It's not as strong as other scents that The Body Shop offer, so if you want something light yet sweet smelling (but not sickly sweet), then this is for you.

It is designed for dry skin, but I believe that it's suited for most skin types.  While it's very moisturising, it does not feel heavy or greasy at all (unless you go overboard!)  It melts onto your skin and is so easy to rub in.  I have tried other body butters by The Body Shop and this one is the only one that has such a soft consistency.

While some moisturisers are suited only to certain seasons, the Brazil Nut Body Butter suits both the hotter seasons and the cooler seasons, as it's very moisturising (good for winter) but light enough to wear in summer.  I'm always on the hunt for a good moisturiser that will get rid of my KP (keratosis pilaris- post soon?), which is why I always switch it up, but like I mentioned earlier, I always come back to this one.  While it doesn't get rid of KP, I do notice that it reduces it a fraction and leaves my skin so soft and smelling sweet.  Remind me to go to The Body Shop this weekend, as I'm running a little low!
