Boots Extracts Vanilla Body Butter

Price: £7.75 for 200ml

'Extracts vanilla body butter intensively moisturises and hydrates, leaving skin soft and smooth.

Extracts vanilla body butter is organic, sustainably sourced & fairtrade.'

This isn't the cheapest body butter, but it's cheaper than The Body Shop and it's a price I'm happy to pay.The two things I look for in a body butter are: it has to smell delicious and the consistency has to be thick. Vanilla is my favourite scent, so obviously I adore the smell. It's very sweet, maybe too overpowering for some, but I personally love it. The consistency is very thick; if I run my finger over it, no product is picked up. I have to run my finger over it quite forcefully, which I don't mind because I love thick body butters. It moisturises well, I've never come across a body butter or lotion that doesn't moisturise well. It also sinks into your skin well. I think it's a bonus that the products from the Boots Extracts range are fairtrade.

I love this body butter and would definitely choose this brand over The Body Shop. I've also got their Cocoa Butter body butter, which smells like chocolate, is just as thick and deeply moisturises.

Boots are doing a gift set which includes 5 50ml Boots Extracts body butters. This is £10 and on my wish list (Will be even better if it's in the Christmas/January sale!)

  1. If this is real vanilla extract, then I'm definitely going to try it, as I literally love vanilla!
