The Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter Review

I'm slowly working through my Body Shop stash, and I'm currently using the Satsuma Body Butter. In my teens I used to be obsessed with the Satsuma scent, and it was always the one that I would first smell every time I was in a store. I still love the scent, let's see what I think about the body butter!

I find the Satsuma scent to be very invigorating and fresh! It's very citrusy, and great for the summertime. This formula is made for normal skin types, but I find it to be very moisturizing and would work great for dryer skin types. This lotion also takes quite a while to absorb, which I love in the winter, but in the hot, humid summer months, it's not so great. I would save this lotion for night time so it has time to absorb.

I find the Satsuma scent to linger for a few hours, but it isn't very strong or overpowering, which I really like! I have the smaller 50mL tub of this body butter, and I find that the smaller tubs don't last me that long. The 50mL tubs are great for trying out a bunch of different scents to figure out which ones you like, and which ones you don't love so much.

Have you tried the Satsuma scent from The Body Shop before? What are you favourite body butter scents? :)


  1. I love Satsuma! You get this delicious whiff of it every now and then when you wear it! Makes me happy!! :D

    1. I agree, the scent is very happy and uplifting! :)

  2. I work for The Body Shop and this is the body butter that tends to be the one people are always after! This and Shea sell really well. The formula of the butters are extremely thick so next time if you want something that absorbs a little better I'd go for one of the whip lotions. Love your blog doll!xox

    1. I love the Shea one as well :) I have the Satsuma puree and I don't really like the formula! I much prefer the body butter formula :)
