              My favorite smell of all time. clean and fresh and yet musky and earthy. Classic. It is so moisturizing and just perfect. It is one of their thicker body butters but it is also their most hydrating. It's just perfect and i've been using it for years.

                Comments about The Body Shop Shea Body Butter:

                I finally tried The Body Shop shea body butter after hearing about their body butters from many YouTubers. I was very disappointed in how greasy this was! It did not absorb into my skin quickly at all. The sent was ok but I have definitely smelled better. I much prefer The Tree Hut body butter & its way cheaper.

                I love this body butter. Although most people would think it does not have enough fragrance I love it for just that reason. I get migraine from fragrance and this is light and does not bother me. I have very dry skin and it makes my skin very soft and smooth.

                  My skin is very dry & itchy. The first day I used this product, I was in love! I applied it after my morning shower and at bedtime, my skin still felt soft, protected and was not itchy! A little goes a long way. If you have dry skin, this is definitely worth a try.

                      This product has a nice consistency and will definitely alleviate my dry skin during the winter months. I don't however like the smell of it. The shea scent is minor at best. It smells like alcohol. I wouldn't buy this particular scent again, and I would definitely smell/test them in person versus purchasing online next time.

                          A:

                          The Body Shop does not claim that this product is hypoallergenic. The Body Shop products do not list an expiry date on the packaging. Typically, the shelf life for all new products that are unopened is three years. After opening, we recommend that customers finish using the product within 12 months. You will also notice that there is an 'Open Jar' symbol on the labels of most of The Body Shop products. The symbol looks like an opened lid with a number and the letter "M" on it. The number symbol indicates the number of months after the product has first been opened by the consumer that it will remain in a suitable condition for use. This is often referred to as the "period after opening". The Body Shop has included this symbol on labels to act as a reminder to consumers that cosmetic products should not continue to be used for excessively long periods, once they have been opened and used.
