Where to Buy

Body Butter has long been a staple at The Body Shop, so it'd be hard to say they haven't gotten at least a few things right in that time. Users love that The Body Shop Body Butter product moisturizes well, absorbs quickly and isn't sticky or greasy -- a tall order. Thousands of reviewers at and provide their opinions on a variety of Body Butter scents, which makes it difficult to distinguish a clear best. But the brand loyalty that is expressed for this product is impressive, with some users saying they bounce around between formulations -- there are 22 not including some limited edition offerings.

The Body Shop Body Butter is also conspicuously absent from any professional reviewer or magazine "Best" lists. Because of the lack of professional or dermatologist recommendations, not to mention its wide variety of formulations, it is difficult to include The Body Shop Body Butter as a Best Reviewed pick despite its positive user comments.
