On first impressions, I liked the packaging. The tin has an effortlessly cool appeal and the overall aesthetic clearly communicates that it's a small brand whilst still looking professional.
The body butter is a thick white cream with a slightly whipped texture. It has a delicate citrus scent (personally, I found this to be more of a generic citrus than grapefruit) which is fresh on the skin without being so overpowering as to interfere with other fragrances. The scent comes from a blend of pure essential oils including grapefruit, mandarin and lavender.
Lucy's Lotions Vitamin E and Grapefruit Body Butter contains Vitamins A, B, C and of course, E which is renowned for its antioxidant properties. In addition, it contains shea & cocoa butters along with soothing aloe vera & jojoba oil. As aforementioned, it is designed to nurture & hydrate skin, as well as improving elasticity and helping to reduce the appearance of scars & stretch marks.
The intensely nourishing formula means that a little goes a long way. It took quite a bit of effort to get the body butter to absorb into the skin (& this was the case even after exfoliating) and it's this which would put me off repurchasing as I simply lack the patience!
That said, I loved that once it was absorbed, I couldn't detect the greasy residue which I so often associate with body butters. My skin was left feeling nourished and conditioned.
Lucy's Lotions Vitamin E and Grapefruit Body Butter costs £14 for 150ml.
