Sephora Body Butter

Whipped to perfection, Body Butter moisturizes, nourishes, soothes and refreshes. I love body butters – all smells, all shapes and sizes. I’m always on the hunt for the new, creamiest butters! So, on a recent jaunt to Sephora, I stumbled across these colorful tubs of — body butter!!! They looked like rainbow saucers – bright green, neon pink, stop-light yellow – and they smelled like exotic fruits and flowers. I had to try them all!

The Sephora brand Body Butters are God-sent. A little piece of heaven every time you moisturize. The butter is ultra rich, absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue, yet it keeps the skin smooth and hydrated all day long!

By far, my favorite scent is the coconut cream one. It’s literally like ripping apart the fresh fruit. It’s rich potent smell lingers on my skin for hours on end (a mixture of cocounut milk, roasted almonds, Hawaiian honey, vanilla mousse and musks). Complete strangers have literally approached me with my favorite opener ever: “You smell good enough to eat!” David Beckham can say that to me ALL day long!

I also enjoy the peach blossom scent. It’s a combination of sweet Georgia peaches, Hawaiian honey, ginger, raspberry and lychee. This excotic aroma is absolutely intoxicating. It’s sweet and pungent and goes perfectly with my tropical-themed roll-on perfumes!

The Body Butters come in 12 delicious scents (like Morning Waterlily, Tangerine Grapefruit, and Tropical Jasmine) with 2 more on the way: and Apple PomegranateVanilla Cupcake…. I’ll let you know if they live up to their potential!

The butters remind me of The Body Shop Body Butters – rich in texture and scent as well. The Body Shop Body Butters are a bit pricier (Body Shop is $20.00 for 6.9 fl oz., Sephora is $16.00 for 6.7 fl oz.) and, besides, I dig the colorful packaging of Sephora more (they really stand out in my sea of bath products!). I also believe the Sephora butter lasts longer on my skin!

Have you tried both body butters? Which one do you like prefer?
