Guest Review By Ranita (Medium Skintone, Normal to Dry Skin Type)

It is that time of the year again. The temperature drops rapidly, a sneeze is heard at every turn, hot chocolate becomes the daily staple, and my skin starts getting dry and scratchy. Winter is undeniably here when the colourful sweaters are unpacked from the trunks and cupboards they had been packed into at the end of January. As much as I love the cold break from scorching Hyderabad heat, my skin usually never has a good time. But, to my rescue comes The Body Shop  – their Body Butters and the 25% discount sale on them.

On my last visit to the local store, I picked up the “Vineyard Peach Body Butter”. It looks adorable in its peachy orange tub with the picture of a delicious looking peach on the lid. The packaging is just as any other Body Shop Body Butter, compact, functional and leak-proof.

The description provided by the company states that it is a “Special Edition Body Butter that leaves the skin feeling fresh and peachy-soft for up to 24 hours.”

I had to smile the moment I opened the lid. This Body Butter smells totally and completely of peaches! Freshly picked, cut-up and served up in a little plastic tub! The texture is lovely – rich and creamy. It is soft and buttery, yet not greasy. It absorbs into the skin quite easily and does not transfer onto clothing or leave a white cast. The scent is wonderful and substantial without being overpowering. The fragrance lasts a couple of hours.

It contains ethically sourced Shea Butter, Cocoa butter, beeswax, Sesame oil and Brazil nut oil. They also have Peach Kernel Oil among their many ingredients, bringing in the peach component of this product.

The company states that this product is for dry skin. In my opinion, it is perfect for normal-to-dry skin and works quite well for moderately parched skin. If your skin is extremely dry, this product may not be enough for you. It offers good hydration and the skin is indeed softer and smoother on application. Also, it is not quite so thick that it would be too greasy for skin that tends to the oily side. This product is meant for the body and not the face. A little bit of this product goes a long way. I have been using it for a few days now and my skin does feel more hydrated. It is very good during the day time, but I found that it is excellent as an over-night moisturizer. I apply it at night, before bed, and the next morning my skin is super soft.

However, the effect does not last for 24 hours. I would say it lasts for about 12-15 hours, subject to how dry the climate is. The fragrance does not last very long either.

This Body Butter is originally priced at INR 995 and is available in stores and on The Body Shop – India website. However, after their 25% discount, available both in stores and on their website, it is currently available for INR 746.

To Summarize:

Pros:

  1. Hydrating and moisturizing, without being greasy.
  2. Lasts for a long time.
  3. The scent is right on the spot. It has a mild smell of peaches. No additional or interfering scents.
  4. The packaging is compact and leak-proof

Cons:

  1. It is not hydrating enough for very dry skin
  2. If you don’t like peaches – this product is not for you.
  3. If you do like peaches and are hoping that the scent would last all day – prepare to be disappointed, because it will not last very long.

Rating: A

Price: Rs. 995

Recommendation: The Body SHop Vineyard Peach Body Butter is super hydrating and moisturizing without being greasy, it smells of peaches and lasts for a long time ! The scent does not stay however, and if you have super dry skin then look for some even thicker butter than this one.

Thanks Shruti. Although, if your skin is super dry, this might not be the best one for you. You could try the Olive or Shea one.

I do like peaches, but I wouldn’t want to smell like them. I love the cherry blossom body butters from TBS
