Recently I picked up a tub of Asquith & Somerset Coconut & Banana all over body moisturiser. Now I like the Body Shop Body Butters and this looked fairly similar.
What they say:
This exquisite All Over Body Moisturiser is lavishly scented with the smooth and velvety Coconut & Banana fragrance. As with all our moisturisers we use the finest quality ingredients, including the highly emollient rich Shea butter, to deeply moisturise, nourish and protect your skin. In this extremely beneficial moisturising experience you’re left feeling smooth to the touch and perfumed with the delicious hint of a tropical paradise.
What I say:
Paradise? No, but a great cheap(ish) creamy moisturiser yes. Okay its not going to make me skinner, get rid of cellulite, make my body look younger etc. But it does what it says on the tin. its thick yellow and creamy, though not as thick and the Body Shop’s range. It sinks in well and lasts all day. The smell is nice but not a strong as I would have liked.
It’s cute professional looking packaging makes it similar to the Crabtree & Evelyn rang but not at the cost, so it can double up as a really great gift for a boyfriends mum or sister without breaking the bank.
Great for that summer feeling or on holiday to slap all over your body (without worrying about the cost) to stop your skin drying out. It also worked really well on dry tanned skin too to keep it soft and supple.
