The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Butter

I love The Body Shop's body butters, and lately I've been going through my stash, trying to find new favourites! I bought a bunch of different scents during boxing week, where I got amazing deals. Slowly but surely I'm working my way through my stash of body lotions :)

The Sweet Lemon scent is great in the pot, but I found that when it's applied to the skin, the scent doesn't smell as great. This body butter doesn't smell like that traditional lemon scent, it's a bit sweeter, as the name suggests. The Sweet Lemon body butter is moisturizing, but it's not too thick or greasy at all. This one is formulated for normal to dry skin, so it's not the thickest body butter that The Body Shop makes. I think that this formula/scent is great for the hot summer months, since it is a bit lighter.

I had the little pot of this body butter, the 50mL size. These travel sizes are great for travelling, or for trying out a bunch of different scents without spending a fortune. The 50mL sizes are 2 for $10, but The Body Shop always has a bunch of different deals going on. The small size doesn't last me a lot of uses, so from now on I will be buying the larger 200mL size :)

I enjoyed this pot of the Sweet Lemon Body Butter, but I don't think I will be repurchasing this scent. I like other scents a lot more. My favourites so far are Coconut, Shea, and Mango. Which scents are your favourites? :)


  1. I felt the same way about Sweet Lemon. It was nice, but it smelled better in the pot...

  2. I'm a huge fan of The Body Shop's body butters but I have to say I agree with you on Sweet Lemon's smell. It smelt great in the tub but once applied to my skin it took on a weird chemical smell reminiscent of Cif! Have you tried the chocolate one? It smells great but it's a little too heavy for me to use during the summer. Moroccan Rose smells great!

    1. I haven't tried the chocolate one! I really need to as I'm a chocoholic lol
      I'll also give Moroccan Rose a go! Thanks for the recommendations :)
