The Body Shop Pinita Colada Body Butter Review

 Winter time means time to shop for body butters, for me, it’s either “The Body Shop” or “Bath & Body Works.”  I love the skincare range of these two brands. I’m totally enjoying the burst of fresh pineapple and coconut. I’m using this butter for past 10 days, and here are the details about the same. Scroll down to read more

How to use product

Massage into skin. Be generous! It works even better when applied straight after a bath or shower.

Packaging– The Body Shop “Pinita Colada” body butter comes in an off-white tub with a screw cap, the usual body butter packaging that we see in other flavours. The cap of the tub is colourful which gives it a gorgeous look. The tub has all the details of the product, including ingredients. The packaging is too heavy to carry around while travelling.

Texture- The butter is white in color and looks like thick cream. The consistency is very smooth and glides on with an ease. The texture is thick but never feels greasy or sticky as it gets absorbed quickly. When it comes to the texture, it seems perfect for the winter season and is quite heavy for summers.

My experience with the product-

A lot of women complain about the tub packaging but I personally love to dip my hands to feel the ultimate texture of this soft butter. For dry skin, this is an intensive creamy all-over body moisturizer, about 10 hours hydration with pineapple-citrusy fragrance. It readily assimilates into the skin after massaging.. The fragrance lasts for a couple of hours before becoming faint and people around you may sniff it. The fruity fragrance subsides after 2 hours, leaving behind soft coconut smell. So the fragrance lasts for about 4-5 hours, which is lesser compared to other body butter like strawberry and cocoa butter. The fragrance starts off with strong citrusy-fruity top notes. Fruity-fragrance lovers will love the smell. The base notes are very mild, with coconut fragrance. It gets absorbed into the skin in seconds and no greasy feeling after application. It works wonders for super dry cracking skin and makes it supple.  I usually use it soon after shower on my entire body and before the bedtime on my hands and legs. It provides relief to dry, parched skin.
