I have to admit something right now...
I'm a cheater.
There. I said it.
I can't stay in a monogamous relationship with a lotion or cream to save my life. I can hardly even get through half a tube or bottle before I've grown tired of a scent or found something new to grab my attention. From St. Ives to L'Occitane or Fresh or Nivea. Nothing gets used all the way.
Except... this morning I noticed something as I slathered myself in a layer of my latest obsession.
I'm running suspiciously low and can even kind of see a little bit of the bottom of the tub of this stuff:
You guys... this is a huge breakthrough for me.
I also cannot rave enough about this product. And this is coming from someone who NEVER gets excited about cream.
Brazil Nut Body Butter from The Body Shop is ah-MAZE-ing.
I've used other body butters before and never really found anything to rave about, but suddenly my elbows are smooth, the bottoms of my heels have stopped cracking, and I legitimately cannot get enough of this scent.
It's nutty and vaguely coco-buttery with a hint of sweetness... I'm not even sure if that's an accurate description, but I'm pretty obsessed with it. The scent is definitely not overbearing like you get with certain body butters (I'm lookin' at you Sweet Lemon & Coconut) and the texture is perfect. Not to greasy or too difficult to rub in. It just melts into my skin and leaves me in a happy haze of nutty goodness.
I've heard rumors that they are discontinuing this product, though, which would be terrible. I'm going to have to show up at the store and buy out the entire stock so that I never run out. That's not completely over-dramatic, is it? Nah. I didn't think so.
