Review: Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

For me, moisturising my body is not a once-a-week luxury or something I struggle to remember; it's something I do without fail after every bath or shower, because if I don't my life is a misery; such are the joys of eczema. I also have to be pretty careful about the ingredients in my body butters, as anything containing Paraffin, Petroleum or parabens seems to dry my skin out no end and basically leaves me no better off. The Body Shop body butters are largely great (although a couple of them are too strongly scented for my skin) and I really like Naked Bodycare's Coco de Mer Body Butter, but I'm a beauty blogger at heart and I like to try new things!
Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter Review
I picked up this Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter in Superdrug a couple of weeks ago, because the ingredients list looked pretty good and it seemed like really good value for money. With moisturising ingredients like Capric Triglyceride (coconut fatty acids) and Butyrospermum Parkii Butter (shea butter), and none of the nasties which I know my skin hates, I had to give it a try.
Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter Ingredients
The packaging is nothing exciting, a simple pink plastic pot with a screw cap, but it does the job and I wouldn't expect much else for the price to be honest.
The butter itself is really thick but quickly melts on contact with the skin, meaning it spreads easily and sinks into the skin in next to no time. I find this goes a lot further than, say The Body Shop's body butters, which I find are so thick that they don't spread easily and I end up using quite a lot to properly moisturise my legs. Arora's Body Butter, on the other hand, spreads like a dream and leaves my skin feeling really soft, without drying it out like some body butters can (I'm looking at you, Soap & Glory!). It has the added bonus of a beautiful citrus scent which, although it doesn't last long on the skin, makes it really pleasant to use.
Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter
Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter is available from Superdrug priced at £3.99 for 200ml, although it's currently available at just £1.97 so now is definitely a good time to give it a try! The Body Butter also comes in five other fragrances, including Wild Berry, Sweet Vanilla, and Coconut Creme, all of which sound gorgeous.
Have you tried Arora's body butters? What's your favourite body butter? How good are you at remembering to moisturise your body?

  10. I love body butters, but I'm too much of a body shop devotee to buy them anywhere else!

  15. Oooooh how are you so good with your moisturising routine!!! I find moisturises (face, body or otherwise) are just too sticky and you have to waive for them to really soak in. I can't imagine applying a moisturiser after my morning shower! I'd have to wake up crazy early haha.

    This does sound good though. It's something I should consider doing more. Maybe I'll give this one a go what with it being so reasonably priced.

  16. This has to be the best body butter I have ever tried!! I have the wild berry flavour, and the scent is gorgeous and it seems to last well. I agree with everything you said. It's amazing!!
