Honey! Shea butter! Body stuff!

  • Original Source Shea Butter & Honey Shower Gel is… well, it’s a bit of a puzzler. The wash itself is lovely, very plush and bubbly and smooth, but the fragrance is, um. How can I put this delicately? It has a little hint of eau du urinal to it. Underneath the honey and shea butter scent is a note that I can only describe as being a bit pee-ish, and I’m sorry yo, but that’s something that I can’t use. No thanks.
  • Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion With Shea Butter, however, is a yummy delight. It smells like warmed cocoa butter and even though I don’t have a taste for sweet perfumes, I’m not opposed to wearing this scent on my skin for five or six hours until it fades away. The lotion itself sinks into my skin without feeling sticky or thick, although it’s better for normal/dry skin than my dry/driest parched skin. Nice scent, nice feel, pretty nice all ’round. I’ve only started using Dove products after The Chap’s enthusiastic recommendation of Dove’s Deeply Nourishing Body Wash, but I think I’ll take a peek at the rest of their body line when I’m next at Priceline.

Pro tip: apply a generous amount of this body lotion over your legs and lower torso before putting on stockings or tights. It’ll grip the fabric a little and keep your stockings in place for hours without sagging or rolling.

  1. Okay next time I’m in Boots I’m going to take a whiff of the OS, not because I like the smell of wee but because it’s funny!

    • Ha ha! I swear I never noticed any odd smell when I first picked it up in the supermarket, but it seems to come out when lathered up under hot water. Eek.
