Speed Review: Lavera Macadamia Passion Body Butter


Following on from yesterday's review, today's post looks at another Lavera product but instead of skincare, this time it's a body care product.

As the name suggests, Lavera Macadamia Passion Body Butter contains organic macadamia to smooth and organic passionflower, which is rich in essential fatty acids to keep skin soft, whilst also protecting against moisture loss.

Lavera Macadamia Passion Body Butter is presented in a white tub and whilst I quite liked the aesthetic, I'm not convinced that the rather plain, clinical packaging would appeal to me if I saw it on a shop shelf. I appreciated the inclusion of a "use by" date and the "green" credentials are also clearly marked.

I tend not to like tub packaging as I find it to be both messy & unhygienic. That said, it does lend itself well to body butters. Unlike many body butters which have a solid balm texture, Lavera Macadamia Passion Body Butter has a very thick cream texture, meaning that a little goes a long way. It took quite a bit of effort to work into skin and this was, rather frustratingly, the case even after using a body scrub. Having said that, once it was absorbed into skin I was very pleased to note that there was no greasy residue which is very impressive for a body butter!

I loved the comforting scent in the tub. It's warm and nutty as opposed to fruity or floral. However, I wasn't such a fan of the scent as I applied the body butter onto skin. The warmth of my skin seemed to change the scent & it reminded me of play-dough!

Despite not being the biggest fan of the application, I was impressed with the results. My skin was left feeling soft, smooth and wonderfully conditioned. It will be a good choice as we head into the winter months.
I feel that Lavera Macadamia Passion Body Butter is reasonably priced at £8.95 for 150ml.
