Hello everyone! This is my first review for Wise She and I am SUPER excited to be here 😀 the body shop is one of my favourite brands and todayâ€™s review features one of their popular body butters: the Vanilla Bliss body butter! Letâ€™s get straight into the review 🙂
Price and quantity: Rs 1295 for 200 ml
My take on The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter:
The body butter comes in a tub-like packaging characteristic of all the TBS body butters which are colour coded according to the main ingredient. Vanilla Bliss comes in a pale yellow plastic tub with a screw on lid. The tub packaging does raise a few eyebrows but itâ€™s quite sensible for a product such as this.
The body butter is a pale yellow cream â€“ it is thicker than your usual moisturizing creams though. The consistency is actually quite like solid butter â€“ itâ€™s slightly difficult to spread but once you do, it gets absorbed into the skin quite fast. It does feel a tad heavy on the skin for about half an hour after applying â€“ but it settles after that. It doesnâ€™t feel greasy as such, atleast not more than it should. However, itâ€™s definitely not a summer moisturiser. Itâ€™ll just feel uncomfortable on your skin for that half hour it takes to get settled â€“ youâ€™ll have to replace it with body purees or something lighter, thatâ€™s for sure.
Now letâ€™s go to the fun part â€“ the fragrance 😀 Iâ€™ve said so a million times: Iâ€™m a goner every time I step into a TBS store because EVERYTHING smells so darn good. This body butter is no exception. It has a conventional vanilla fragrance that makes it smell edible â€“ Iâ€™m not kidding guys, itâ€™s actual â€˜vanilla blissâ€™ (see what I did there? :-P). And the fragrance does linger for a while after use â€“ like for about 2-3 hours. Vanilla is a bit milder as a fragrance â€“ Iâ€™m guessing the other body butter scents last a bit longer.
I used this all through winter last year every night right before bed and I loved going to sleep with the delicious vanilla fragrance all around me, and waking up to soft, hydrated skin. Oh and the best part? The tub is still three-fourths full. And I have dry skin! So you can imagine how long this will last!
What I like about The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter:
- Very moisturizing
- Delicious fragrance
- One tub lasts a long time (probably 2-3 winters)
- Suitable for all skin types
What I don’t like about The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter:
- The price!
- Tub packaging
- Too heavy to be used in summers
Final recommendation: The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter is an excellent option for the winters but itâ€™s too heavy to be used in the summer. Given the quantity, itâ€™ll last you quite a while and since it does its job really well, I think the (obscenely) high price tag is justified! Plus the fragrance makes it a winner all round for me.
