The Body Shop Body Butter Giveaway! Ends 06-29-11, 10:00 am Central

CONGRATS to Sam Wheeler, who just won the body butter! I'll be in touch with you shortly to get your information. Thank you to everyone who entered!

I currently hold in my hot little hand (literally because we're averaging temps in the upper 90's currently!) a container of  The Body Shop's Moringa Body Butter. I've been trying it out & also have one to giveaway to a lucky reader as well.

I have a 50 ml container, & I'm happy to tell you all about it! I have eczema on my hands, & it stubbornly refuses any treatment! I've been using this for a little less than a week, & while my eczema remains, I do have to say that there's a dramatic improvement. Not only does it look better, but it feels MUCH better too. The itching & cracking/bleeding skin has all but disappeared. This is a condition that I live with on my fingers from the Spring through part of the Summer, & I'm not kidding when I say that it's torture. My fingers either itch like crazy or hurt constantly. Just look at these before & after pics for proof! I can only imagine the improvement I would see if I used this for a month solid.



Update: I continued to use it for the rest of the month & my eczema is almost gone! It's completely gone on the 1/2 of my finger that is closest to my hand, & almost gone on the fingertip.

The Body Shop states that it lasts up to 24 hrs, & I have to admit that it was awfully long lasting. I wash my hands frequently with a small baby, cooking, testing out cloth diapers, etc. It definitely made my skin softer & lasted. With other lotions & potions, I find myself slathering it on several times a day. I applied the Body Butter to both of my hands once a day, but topped up the eczema areas a couple of extra times a day with small dabs. I think for "normal" skin it might very well last 24 hrs. The Body Shop states that this particular Body Butter is best for normal to dry skin, & that definitely describes me!

How it works:
  • Moringa seed oil with natural oleic acid moisturizes and protects skin.
  • Community Trade shea butter moisturizes and softens skin.
  • Community Trade cocoa butter is an excellent moisturizer that melts at body temperature.


1) Super soft skin

2) Requires just a dab to get the job done

3) Smells very feminine & flowery

4) Compact size makes it easy to carry in your purse, or in my case a diaper bag

5) Long lasting


 1) Some might say that this is an overly floral scent - perhaps even overpowering. I didn't find that to be a problem since I was just dabbing it on.

That's it! I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say about this product. I'm hooked & hope that you will be too. I look forward to trying out other scents.
