TBS Body Butter in Olive

Goodbye itchy, dry skin cause I'm buttering my body now!  Suddenly became a new fan of body butter all because of The Body Shop's Body Butter in Olive.  To date, I have 6 tubs (5 big and a mini) in different variants but Olive started my fascination.

and here's a close up view of the ingredients in english and yes, it has 2 kinds of paraben
Yes it has Methylparaben and Propylparaben.  According to Wikipedia, Parabens are used as a preservative by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries and is mainly use for their  bactericidal and fungicidal properties. To know more about what paraben is you can visit Wikipedia here.

for Normal or Dry skin
Olive is for normal or dry skin and it's one of their best seller so I'm really happy to get this baby at half the original price. It's pretty easy to use, just pat some onto skin then massage just like how you apply a lotion.  It's also as light as a lotion; it's not sticky nor heavy, and the scent is delicious well it's not really a love at first sniff but the second that I used it I began to be accustomed with it's smell that it makes me want to believe that it's an olive ice cream.
creamy yet light and non-sticky
See, it can qualify as an ice cream, right?
I love how this body butter softens and moisturize my dry skin and as I said it's not heavy and sticky even if it has creamy consistency.  My hands and feet love it too so I don't have to buy a separate hand and heel lotion.

I'm really glad to have found this wonder.  It's an all in one product that is just right for my budget.

Thanks for reading.  Till then.  Bye!
