I was lucky enough to get this Body Butter in the Live Bloggers goody bag back in September and I’ve been using it since. I’m hooked on this stuff. It’s specifically for dry skin – so this was the best time of year to put that to the test.
I think first off the number one thing about this Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae Body Butter is the scent, its heavenly. I have the pot on my desk (I work from home) & I find myself just taking the lid off to smell it & I have been known to use it as a hand cream. The scent is THAT good. I have heard this is a great dupe for the Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Soufflé Body Crème – I can’t confirm that. But I do know that this Nip + Fab version is a fraction of the price and the sweet Pistachio scent is amazing. AMAZING
As I said this is aimed at dry skin and I fit that bill to a T. My skin is really dry on my legs. I have been using the body butter a couple of times a week at night only on my legs as these are the driest part and this is quite a heavy butter. I find it takes a while to absorb but it’s really easy to massage in as it’s not too thick, in fact it is quite creamy/buttery consistency. It feels and smell luxurious and I like the ritual of putting it on. Its been a god send over the past few weeks esp as it has really got cold & my skin dry.
I find that using it over night gives it time to really absorb into the skin without feeling greasy throughout the day. I wake up in the morning to lovely smooth skin – that smells so good. This really does get the thumbs up from me. You get a really good-sized pot – 200ml for £9.95
Have you tried anything from Nip + Fab? I have my eye on the Body Butter Bundle – 3 body butters in the scents Mango Smoothie, Coconut Latte & Pistachio Sundae. I also like the sound of the Dark Circle Fix
