TBS Strawberry Butter Body Butter comes in a red round tub packaging with a screw on cap. You need to dip in your fingers to get the product making it a bit unhygienic but that makes sure you end up using the whole product and that there is no wastage. It has the list of ingredients, date of manufacturing & expiry and other necessary details mentioned below the tub. Its a bit bulky so not very travel friendly but you can get it in a travel size for those purposes.
Texture & Scent
The Strawberry Body Butter is light pink in color and has a really smooth and buttery texture. It sort of has an air whipped texture and is certainly lighter than Cocoa Body Butter. It absorbs very easily into the skin and does not feel greasy or oily.
The body butter has a fruity and sweet berry scent which transports me back to the good ole fresh summery days. I have a very sensitive nose and it does smell sickly sweet to me in the tub but feels very refreshing once its massaged into the skin. So do not judge it by sniffing the tub. Massage a bit on your skin and then decide if you want to buy it or not. If you’re a lover of fruity scents then you’ll certainly luuuuurve it! The fragrance lingers on for 4-5 hours which is pretty darn good.
Efficacy & Staying Power
TBS Strawberry Body Butter is meant for dry-normal skin and it adequately moisturizes my skin. It does not feel heavy at all and is perfect unless you have very dry skin.
My skin stays hydrated the whole day and I do not need re application even for my very dry hands and feet. It’s light enough to be even used during the summers.
Worth the high price tag?
TBS Body Butters do cost quite a bit but it is so worth the investment. You get a huge quantity which will definitely last you the whole season if not the whole year. TBS usually offers good discounts on their body butters so do look out for them.
