If you love healthy, soft and deliciously smelling skin, then there are five top body butter fragrances you should consider making a part of your beauty regimen. Body butter imparts smooth, glossy skin and a delicious fragrance that stays throughout the day. Body butter fragrances are highly subjective, but a few standard scents always top the popular charts. The following five body butter fragrances have floral, fruity and sensual notes that make them excellent skincare choices.
An explosion of citrus that has remained the number one scent at the Body Shop since its introduction, this butter leaves you feeling invigorated and refreshed. It works best for normal skin and lasts up to 24 hours. Shea butter, filled with vitamins A, E and F, helps seal in moisture and nourishes the skin with antioxidants. If you find the Satsuma to be too zesty, a similar fragrance from them is the Mango body butter, while Grapefruit provides even sharper citrus.
Warm, sweet and comforting, the vanilla and sugar combination from Bath and Body Works makes this body butter a favorite for women of all ages. The scent has a strong undercurrent of luxurious sensuality to it, so smooth some on before you head out to a date. It uses Shea and Murumuru Butter to moisturize for up to 24 hours. It also features a unique addition of CoQ10 antioxidant, pro-vitamin B and vitamins C and E. Try Twilight Woods for a lighter, earthier scent or Black Amethyst and Sensual Amber to play up indulgent sensuality.
Victoria’s Secret makes body butter with just as much intoxicating desire as their lingerie. This cherry blossom and peach butter has a delightfully vibrant fragrance that emphasizes fresh, fruity notes. It entices with bursts of juicy scent rather than the subtle, warm notes of vanilla. It contains Shea and Jojoba Butters and vitamin E as moisturizers. Rub onto very dry areas like the knees and elbows for silky smooth skin. If you like the more traditional, musky notes, go for Amber Romance.
Flower lovers, line up for this one. You cannot get a heftier dose of sweet floral notes than in Sweet Pea. Yet, it is not overpoweringly strong like gardenia or rose fragrances. The sweet pea scent mingles and lingers without force. It brings to mind gauzy curtains wafting in a Mediterranean breeze. Like all Bath and Body Works Body Butters, it uses Shea and Murumuru Butters with a healthy dose of antioxidants to boot. It also comes in a handy travel size. Also try their Japanese Cherry Blossom if you like florals.
Not many body butters can claim to be nutty, but this one features a rich, delicious scent so good you will want to eat it. This Body Shop Body Butter contains the same ingredients as the Satsuma. It works best with dry skin that needs some extra TLC and has Cocoa and Brazil Nut Butters along with Shea. If looking for a similar neutral, sultry scent, also try their Shea Butter and Olive Butter, which is also a fan favorite for men.
