Editor's Pick: The Body Shop Body Butter Reviews
Looking for an ultra-hydrating body moisturizer that can soothe and comfort skin upon application? We recently received complimentary samples of The Body Shop’s beloved Body Butters to try and review on behalf of our readers. See our results—plus, some of our favorite scents—in the product reviews below.
When it comes to keeping the skin on our bodies moisturized and well-nourished, we often look for thicker creams and butters to get the job done. However, those thick formulas can leave certain skin types feeling more grease than glow. Luckily, thanks to The Body Shop’s lightweight—yet ultra-rich and hydrating—Body Butters, we can have our cake and eat it too. Keep reading to see why we are over the moon for these luxurious body moisturizers in the The Body Shop Body Butter reviews, ahead.
THE BODY SHOP COCONUT BODY BUTTER REVIEW
If you love coconut-scented products, you’ll love The Body Shop’s Coconut Body Butter. Enriched with the brand’s Community Trade coconut oil from Samoa, the award-winning body butter can provide the skin with rich, nourishing hydration and leave your body feeling silky soft.
Why We Love It: If you weren’t already aware, Skincare.com beauty editors are obsessed with all things coconut, so when the brand sent over complimentary samples of some of their most coveted body butters, you bet we made a beeline for the coconut scent— and boy, did it deliver. The tropical coconut scent actually smells like real coconut and instantly transported our senses to some place warm, and the creamy texture left our body feeling ultra hydrated, soothed, and luxurious. What’s more? The body butter’s texture may be rich, but it’s also super lightweight, meaning that it won’t leave your body feeling as if you just greased yourself up with, you know, actual butter.
How To Use It: After showering or bathing with your favorite bath and body products from The Body Shop, apply a liberal amount of the Coconut Body Butter to the skin on your body and massage in upward, circular motions. Reapply throughout the day as needed.

Why We Love It: Almonds aren’t just for snacking—their warm aroma can deliver a delicious scent to bath and beauty products, too! Case in point: The Body Shop’s Almond Body Butter. After receiving complimentary samples of the sweet almond oil infused body butter to test and review, we couldn’t wait to go home and bask in its warming scent—but, not before we treated ourselves to a nice, relaxing bubble bath. After bathing, we applied the lightweight body butter to damp skin and discovered an instant soothing sensation, as the body butter worked to nourish and moisturize the skin on our body. What’s more? The rich body butter is lightweight and didn’t leave our limbs feeling like a greasy mess.

Why We Love It: If scented products aren’t your thing, The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Nourishing Body Butter may be right up your alley. After receiving a complimentary sample of the neutrally scented body butter, the skin on our bodies felt ultra soft, smooth, and well-nourished thanks to a rich blend of vitamin E, shea butter, and cocoa butter.
