Extracts Brazil Nut Body Butter

Sorry I have been slightly absent for the last couple of days, I like to keep my blog updated each day but I have been so busy since my boyfriend got back from Edinburgh on Sunday I have struggled to find the time to sit down and write a post.

Today I'm going to feature a product that I have loved using these last two weeks, with this being the  Extracts Body Butter in Brazil Nut which is available from Boots. This product actually made it onto my July Favourites which can be viewed here. The body butter originally belonged to my mom; however after trying it one evening after a bath I was smitten! Luckily she let me have it to finish it off as there wasn't a huge amount left.

These body butters in the 200 ml size cost £7.95 which I think is fantastic when you consider other similar products on the market. The Body Shop Body Butters spring to mind here which cost £12.50 for the same amount of product.

The product description reads as follows:

Extracts Brazil nut body butter intensively moisturises and hydrates, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.          
Containing Brazil nut oil derived from the bertholletia excelsa seed, Extracts Brazil nut body butter is organic, sustainably sourced & fair-trade.

I love the fact that the products in the Extracts range are Fair-trade, this when shopping is something I do try to look out for as I know it is much more ethical. Fair-trade products helps people in some of the most deprived countries ensuring that they get paid fairly for the ingredients that they supply, such as cocoa beans which we use for cocoa butter.

If you're interested in this here is some more information on it.

As you can see, this is all but spent now but oh my have I enjoyed using it. My skin after using this felt so unbelievably soft, I also felt that it helped to improve the condition of my skin in terms of its appearance. The product itself is quite thick which is something I do like with moisturisers, I much prefer this to a runnier consistency. 

I will be re-buying this as soon as I have got through my spending ban and once I have used up some other little bits and bobs I have lying around.

These body butters also come in:


  1. i have the nectarine one still unused, this has give me the urge to use it! thanks xx

    1. You have to tell me what it is like once you use it! I'm quite interested in that one as well as the Mango and Cocoa.
