Burt's Bees Mango & Orange Body Butter($13) is a super-moisturizing, 99% natural, body moisturizer that smells as good as it performs. Burt's Bees describes this perfectly as " A Smooth Tango With Mango". I tend to stay away from body butters during the summer but, this one was hard to resist especially since it smells like a fruit smoothie. I wouldn't classify the smell as strong, rather more fruity with a strong citrusy punch.
Unlike most body butters, this one is not too thick which makes it easy to spread and absorb real quick which is why I don't mind using it during summer. When I slather it on after a shower, the scent lingers on for a good 3 hours which is something I love my body moisturizers to do. Plus, it leaves my skin conditioned without feeling greasy for a good 5-6 hours. Although it does contain Mango Butter and Sweet Orange Oil as the key ingredients, it does not leave an oily film. The only gripe is the tub packaging which makes this product difficult to travel with. Since it is a natural product, it tends to separate making the oils collect along the sides of the lid which looks quite messy.
That said, I still love this amazing smelling body butter for the great job it does in moisturizing my body making it suitable to be used throughout the year!
Burt's Bees Mango & Orange range is now available at all drugstores and online at Burtsbees.com.
