Review: My Trusty Sunflower Body Butter

Monday, November 03, 2014
If you have been following my blog for a while you may recognise this brand as I have reviewed their hand cream in the lavender scent before (here) which I adore! They have recently brought out a body butter, which I was so excited to try as I love the hand cream and I have actually used up the whole tube so I need to buy a new one asap!

I have the *My Trusty Sunflower Body Butter (£7.99) which contains sunflower oil, coconut oil, bergamot fruit oil, shea butter and many other fantastic ingredients. The body butter looks very average, off white and very thick. However, the scent is heavenly, it smells citrusy but musky and comforting as well, it is a gorgeous scent especially for this time of year. The body butter applies smoothly and easily despite it being so thick and it moisturises so well without leaving my skin feeling greasy or tacky. As well as a general body butter I have been using it as a foot cream and occasionally as a hand cream - it is an amazing all round moisturiser which is super hydrating and non-irritating even on my eczema!

I have tried so many body butters, including pretty much all of The Body Shop butters so I know my stuff and this body butter in my opinion is better than the body shop body butters. Also to make it even better it is not tested on animals, it is paraben free, lanolin free, colour free and all of the profits go straight back to NHS patient care which is amazing! 

Overall, I am very happy with this new addition to the My Trusty Sunflower range, I genuinely cannot rate the body butter and hand cream enough! They also have a face and body oil as well as a subscription service so you can receive your My Trusty Sunflower products every month. Overall rating: ★, 5/5.
