The Body Shop, Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion and Butter

Hii beautiful!

Today I’m going to talk about the Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Restoring Body Lotion & Butter by The Body Shop. I’m a big fan of their products but I could never enjoy their bodycare products: my body is really sensitive when it comes to body lotions, oils, butters, sunscreens etc. I always get itchy, red spots around my armpits or a burning sensation on my arms and legs. No matter what kind of brand I use, 9 out of 10 products I use on my body don’t fit my skintype. When I heard that The Body Shop released a special line for sensitive/dry skin I had to try it out! Really people, these products changed my whole body care routine! Thank you so much to House of Rebels for sending me these gifts from God. Let’s get started!

The packaging has a simple but clean look, I love how they combined the white/milky packaging with the yellow banner at the front. It represents the milk and honey (aduhhh). The body lotion is stored in a squeeze tube and the bodybutter in a jar. I’m not sure if all The Body shop body lotions has this but the tube feels so velvety smooth! When I have it in my hand I want to squeeze it immediately. A little sidenote: the white tube doesn’t gets dirty! I always get annoyed when my beauty items get dirty with makeup of dark stains.

When you imagine almond milk and honey in front of you, this is what you get! The moment I opened the body butter it was like I had a glass of almond milk in my hand and honey dripping in the other hand. I can do this all day with the jar! Sometimes when I used these products for my flatlays I open the jar just to get a good sniff from it. It makes my day. Anyway, don’t be concerned that the smell is overpowering your whole body. The fragrance is subtle but noticeable when you spread it on your body. After a while the fragrance get softer.

Left: body lotion – Right: body butter

The texture of the body lotion is almost milky creamy! You may can describe this body lotion as an aqua face gel because when you start to rub it into the skin it instantly disappears. That’s how quickly the skin absorbs this body lotion and I love it. With a lot of body lotions I have the feeling that it sits on the skin and that it takes a while before the skin absorbs all the product. Now you can use it and instantly wear your clothes without getting the sticky wet feeling. The best thing about this body lotion is that you can really build it up. The first layer you apply is so light! If you need extra moisture for you skin, just apply a second coat. My arms can’t handle the feeling of too much moisture so I love it that the first application is just enough for me, even when I use a small amount. My back is extra dry so I make sure to apply twice as much than on my arms and if it’s still not enough I apply more. The layers don’t get sticky and each of them are being absorbed right away!

The body butter is super moisturizing! With a lot of other body butters (even the butters from The Body Shop) I experience a tingly sensation on my sensitive skin. With the Almond Milk & Honey range I don’t have this! I use this butter on my legs because they are like the desert and really can use some TLC. The butter is too heavy for my sensitive arms and back but that’s why I like to use the lotion for these parts of the body and the butter for the extreme dry skin or less sensitive parts. The texture of the butter is a bit thicker than the lotion and is being absorbed less fast than the lotion which is understandable.

Left: body lotion – Right: body butter

After using the body lotion and butter multiple times, at the moments that my skin was looking okay or being red as a strawberry, I can say that it does magic to my body! I LOVE this range and I never want to use another body lotion or butter in my life, maybe when I hit the 40s I will start using anti-aging products but for now I’m good. I might get the other Almond Milk & Honey items in store because I saw they offer many other goodies from this range!

My skin stays hydrated for at least two days and it looks and feels smooth. The allergic reactions I usually have when putting on body creme are the past, my body doesn’t react on these products and it even looks like my eczema is fading away. I have two spots on my body that are always itchy: the holes behind my knee caps. As a kid when I ate too much candy, those were the spots that instantly reacted. Red patches and an itchy, burning sensation on those spots were a torture. Luckily these reactions disappeared when I turned older but they are still really sensitive. When using the body lotion my skin felt so delighted when I used it on those spots! The butter was also a good solution for my sensitive spots but I felt it was a bit too rich.

If you’ve read my experience up here you might have a clear picture of what I think about the Almond Milk & Honey: I love them! I love them so much that I might get the other items from this range on my own and even tell my friends about this (I usually do that with all my Holy Grail items). Did I just say that these are my Holy Grail items? Well, I have never been so much in love with a body lotion or butter so I make it official: The Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion and Butter are my Holy Grails for my body care!

It may sound a bit too excited but I’m so serious! I really want you to show my skin how terrible it looks but I’m not ready to expose myself this much because I’m not confident about my body. I struggled with all kinds of body issues but believe me: I’m so happy to get to know these products!

You can get your own Soothing & Restoring Body Lotion (200ml, €10) and Soothing & Restoring Body Butter (200ml, €16) at your local The Body Shop!

Thanks a lot for reading <3

    Ahh this line sounds amazing! I especially like the sound of the lotion, I definitely prefer something more lightweight on my body. Plus, I love almond milk and honey so I can only imagine what the scent smells like. Why don’t we have this in the US yet? T_T
