This body butter arrived in my mailbox one day and I still have no idea where it came from or who sent it. If you sent it, please shoot me an email! It is the Real Fruit Goodness Exotically Creamy Coconut Rich Body Butter from Nirvana Spa. According to the label, it is made in the UK. I’ve been using it on my roughest skin, my feet and elbows, for about a month now and am ready to share my results.
First off, the smell. Oh geez the smell. Imagine sticking your nose into a pile of coconuts. It is so strong. Maybe it’s my hypersensitive pregnant nose, but I can’t stand it. That’s the biggest reason I only use it on my feet and elbows, and only right before bed. Coconut isn’t my favorite smell to begin with.
The formula isn’t as thick as most body butters I have tried. It’s still fairly thin, like a heavier lotion. It spreads easily but doesn’t rub off onto my sheets at night while I sleep. It is moisturizing and I have noticed that my skin feels softer and smoother since I began using it. I love that there are fruit extracts and vitamins in it as well since I’m trying to live a more natural lifestyle.
All in all, I do like this body butter, but I wish the smell wasn’t so strong. There’s no way I would buy this for any amount of money with the way it smells.
