Review: The Body shop British Rose Instant Glow Body Butter.

Hey m’lovelies,

As Christmas has just gone and I was very fortunate to be given some amazing presents, I thought I would share my thoughts on one of them with you today because I was absolutely blown away with it.

Obviously, you’ve all seen the title and know that today we will be looking at The Body Shop but specifically their ‘British Rose Instant Glow Body Butter’. It claims to leave your skin ‘feeling petal-soft’ and give it an instant dewy glow which it certainly does. You get 50ml of product for £6 or 200ml of product for £15 and while that may seem a little bit pricey, I personally think it is so worth it as a little bit goes a very long way, and the smaller tub could last months.

The scent is absolutely gorgeous and if you are okay using fragranced skincare then I think you would love this. I personally have very sensitive skin and fragrance seems to really irritate it which is why I never like fragranced products, but this did not irritate my skin in the slightest. I do however think that while the scent is nice, it should be toned down a bit because it can be slightly overpowering on time.

I use this all over my body but place more on my dry areas which have almost completely disappeared since I began to use this and I actually noticed an improvement from the very first use. What impressed me most was that it cleared up a horrendous rash caused by dry skin on the sole of my foot (weird … I know) and I actually did a little experiment to make sure it was this product clearing it up. I used this on my foot for one week, twice a day, and it was almost completely gone but then I stopped using it for a week for it to come straight back. It cleared right back up as soon as I resumed use.

It has a slight sheen to it but it does not leave your skin feeling sticky as it melts straight in, which means you don’t have to wait to put your clothes on and I was so thankful for that. I even used this on my face and it gave it a beautiful glow without looking glittery or greasy which has never happened to me before because I always feel sticky after using moisturiser (even though I have dry skin).

To sum it up, I absolutely loved this product and really think it could work for all skin types which is why I think everybody needs to try it.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. Share your thoughts with me in the comments below and let know if you have any recommendations or anything you’d like me to review.
