I wish more products would bold chunky packaging like this as it’s so easy to see what the product is and which category it comes under (Botanicals is for mature skin), plus it’s easily recycled. This Zuzka Natural Beauty body butter (£24.99 for 250ml) containing organic cocoa and shea butter is incredibly rich and little bit goes a long way. Skin feels a little tacky afterward but not greasy and even the driest skin stays moisturised all day, so I’m going to be using this on my hands twice daily.

The Rosa Canina scent is absolutely beautiful – so delicate and feminine. It lasts for around an hour on the skin but is subtle enough not to clash with other products or perfumes. It actually reminds me of a scent from my childhood, which is really comforting and nostalgic :0)

This item was gifted to me for review purposes. This does not effect my opinion of the product.

LUSH King of Skin Body Butter

20140103-014609.jpg

King of Skin Body Butter (£5.50) is one of LUSH’s many container-less products. I think it’s a great initiative as it cuts down on unnecessary waste and you do have the option to purchase a tin, when you run out of sink space.

The bars main active ingredients are shea butter, avocado, bananas and essential oils to deeply moisturise the skin. I found the shape of the crown to be a little curious, until I realised it’s probably for ergonomic purposes so the bar doesn’t fly out of wet hands, the idea being to use it in the bath/shower. I dipped the bar into my hot bath water and the amount of product that melted onto my arm was astonishing, in fact it was a ridiculously thick layer! I decided for my legs (and in the interest of economy) I would quickly dip the bar into the water and gently smooth a little onto my skin and then massage it in, like you would do with moisturiser.

It moisturised my very parched skin instantly and sunk in fairly well without being tacky. The scent, similar to a chocolate orange, is also really lovely but not heavy enough to be overwhelming. I can imagine this working really well for people with very dry sensitive skin as it’s so naturally creamy.
