When my husband and I visited The Body Shop store in Shinjuku, Tokyo, I spent almost half an hour just smelling their body butters and body scrubs. If I remembered correctly, in some store branches in the Philippines, we only have Shea and Olive Butters. But in this store branch, they have Moringa, Mango, and Strawberry. Ohhhhh the smell. YUMMY.
My husband loves Strawberry, he even joked that he will eat me when I bought the Strawberry Butter for myself, but the thing is I LOVE MANGOES. You know, I want my husband to eat me but I’m selfish. I love MANGOES! So I ended up buying the Mango Butter (also available on Amazon online).
The real deal here is that I have a very dry skin and Mango Butter is formulated for Very Dry Skin, compared to Strawberry Butter which is for Normal to Dry Skin. So I think I’m not being shellfish, it just happened that the Mango is for very dry skin. *cough cough*
Our super-rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade cocoa butter and has an exotic mango scent. 24-hour hydration Great for very dry skin Exotic mango scent.

Application and How does it work for me
There’s a spatula included when I bought the Mango Butter. According to the Direction of Use from the store (not from the packaging): Scoop in an eyeball amount of butter and place it in your hand then apply generously to whole body.
But I didn’t follow the direction at first! Instead, I scooped a very large amount like 3 tablespoon and EEEEEEKK it was soo sticky. It’s because I JUST LOVE THE SMELL and I want to pour it all over my body! But ugh it was a disaster. The feeling was hot and sticky like I was dipped in a big pot of melted butter.
So the next application I learned my lesson, only a scoop and I was moisturized. It turned out very moisturizing, perfect for winter. I’m a WALKING MANGO.
- Yummy smell.
- SUPER DUPER moisturizing.
- Fair Trade product.
- Provides whole day hydration.
- Great for other dry areas like feet, hands, elbows, knees, ankles.
- Absorbs well into the skin.
- Gives skin instant glow.
- Not recommended for people who lives in tropical countries or with very humid weather.
- Greasy feeling if applied in excess.
I’m not sure if this is available in the Philippines, I STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND you to buy this if you’re from a tropical country unless your house, car, or workplace has an extremely cold temperature then you’ll be fine. I LOVE LOVE this butter but will definitely only use this during winter times.
