Body Shop Limited Edition Pomegranate Body Butter

Okay! I know I review nothing, but Body Shop products! Consider TBS my priority for the time being! One day, my blog might become synonymous to the Body Shop! In case of introduction, you can say "that Body Shop lady!" No wonder people ask me if I am a Body Shop consultant! It cant get any better!

As mentioned earlier, Pomegranate Body Butter is a limited edition product! The only word I hate in English so far - "Limited"! Especially, when they are sold out crazy in a couple of days just after the launch! I asked the makeup artist @ TBS what makes Body Shop's Body Butter so special? She says there is some kinda secret ingredient involved in the formula! Nobody ever shares that! This makes things more curious!

Claims: With antioxidant-rich pomegranate seed oil to moisturize! Soften and condition your skin with rich, creamy moisturizer that lasts up to 24 hours and has a vibrant berry scent! Pomegranate seed oil moisturizes the skin! Its rich in antioxidants to help minimize the damage cause by the environmental aggressors! For normal skin!

Body butter is an intense moisturizer that can be used on entire body! They are specially formulated to maximize skin hydration! They are likely to be used during dry times of the year or when the skin suffers from severe lack of moisture! The ingredients contained in body butter often offer the skin both hydration and protection!

I am really not sure when Pomegranate Body Butter was launched! Might be 2009! There was no tester in the store, so I had to believe in the staff! Pomegranate Body Butter was an impulse purchase! Just in a couple of seconds, I can say! This tub was lying on the till waiting for attention! The makeup artist liked it, but the manager did not! Still, she recommended this flavor! I did believe in both and bought this! I dont regret buying this, at all!

I believe, this retails for 12.50 pounds, marked down to 6.25, then to 3 pounds! Correct me if I am wrong! The body butter comes in a 200 ml or 192 g or 6.77 OZ tub! Body Butter tubs usually carry a color theme that coordinates with the fragrance! The tub is deep berry kinda color with an open pomegrante picture on the lid!

The product is pink-colored! Vintage pink, I can say! Compared to the Nutmeg Vanilla, the consistency is creamy! Foam-cream! Understood? Nutmeg Vanilla body butter was liquidy, but not runny! Pomegranate body butter is creamy! It was so solidified in the tub! I turned the tub upside down, the product was still in the tub! I know what you are thinking! Thats not a good idea! Especially, Indian summers! Dont even think about it! Nah!

Again, I am surprised by the scent! It is definitely fruity! To be honest, I cannot pick up the real pomegranate flavor! That fresh juicy pomegranate scent! It smells like dry mango, mostly! Mildly, grape fruit! May be, I am bad at describing fragrances! Just because I know I bought the pomegranate flavor, I should say it might smell like pomegranate! Some of you might have picked up the proper scent, at least! May be, some other ingredient is dominating the pomegranate flavor?

I dont think men will like this as much coz its damn sweet! If they do like it, they know why are we so crazy about TBS body butter! It is not at all overwhelming, so you can keep on layering as much as you wish! The more number of layers, the more sweet you smell! Dont worry about using this along with any other scented products! No fragrance mishap!

Apply the moisturizer on damp skin! It helps lock the moisturizer better! I scoop the product with my fingers! Yes! You heard me right! Compared to the Nutmeg & Vanilla, Pomegranate Body Butter is not a fragrant moisturizer! I mean, not that perfumey-type! Sinks into the skin easily! Not greasy! The staying power of the scent is average! One wash, its almost there! May be, faint! It is really hydrating, especially for the winters! If you are into sweet fragrances, you might like this! No nausea, I swear!

Key ingredients - Cocoa butter, Shea butter, Organic soya oil, Grapeseed oil and Glycerin! Cocoa butter is an excellent moisturizer that melts at body temperature, leaving the skin feeling soft and silky smooth! Shea butter moisturizes and helps soften the skin! Organic soya oil has moisturizing and healing properties that make it ideal for intensive skin care treatments! Grapeseed oil is very rich in essential fatty acids that help repair the skin's moisture barrier, thus helping to restore smoothness and suppleness! Glycerin is an effective moisturizer which helps improve the softness and maximize hydration!
