What Love the Planet says:

After bathing, smooth on all over to leave skin baby soft and delicately scented. Enriched with cocoa butter and sweet almond oil, this Body Butter is a real all rounder. Suitable for all over moisturising as well as being a great hair smoother. Rub a little between your hands and then smooth over your hair to eliminate frizz.

The range of Love The Planet skin and hair care products were born. Free from:

  • Parabens
  • Mineral oils
  • Artificial colours and fragrances
  • Animal testing and animal products
  • Sodium lauryl or laureth sulphate

What I say:

The Body Butter looks a bit like whipped cream but is heavier in texture. It smells quite fresh and a bit bitter, just like Grapefruit and I really love it and find it very refreshing. The lotion sinks in well and makes your skin feel smooth and not sticky at all. I never tried to use it on my hair as they mention in the description on their website but could imagine that it works well if you use a tiny amount of product.

It certainly is not the cheapest option out there, but taking into account that it is made in the UK, has really safe ingredients and the company itself makes a point in producing things in an eco-friendly manner, I think it is worth it.

Definitely a lotion I would repurchase, however when I ran out I had to get something quickly from the drugstore, so I ended up buying the Original Source body lotion below. So, availability might be a bit of a problem unless you always remember to order a new body butter in time.

What I say:

The lotion sinks in quickly, which I like, but it smells rather sweet and I am worried it might be a bit too intense for my liking. I will give you an update once I used it up.
