Designer Brands Mango Body Butter

Mango Body Butter is another one of the products that Designer Brands sent me to review.
The first thing I noticed about Mango Body Butter is the beautiful scent. It smells like fresh, ripe mango's. There's nothing artificial about the scent, it's a true fresh mango scent. I've never found a body butter with such a true fresh scent. As beautiful as it is once the body butter has been applied the scent fades quickly and is not overpowering. The scent alone was enough to win me over.

Designer Brands says: Mango Body Butter is made with natural mango seed and coconut oil to help repair and soften skin. Mango seed contains high levels of vitamin c and can aid in repairing dry and damaged skin. Create immediate and long lasting softness whilst nourishing and hydrating your skin.
You know I love the scent so now we'll talk about the body butter. It's great. It has a medium thick consistency as you would expect from a body butter. However, unlike a lot of other body butters I've used it is non sticky and absorbs quickly. I find Mango Body Butter to be very moisturising. When I use it my skin immediately feels soft and moisturised. After using this twice daily for a week my dry flaky legs were soft and smooth with no hint of dryness.  

Would I buy it? Yes, it smells beautiful and makes my skin feel lovely and soft.

  1. I really like the sound of this! Does the smell last for long?

  2. It's really lovely. The smell fades pretty quickly after I apply it, within about 1/2 an hour it's totally gone.

  3. Good news for perfumes then! :) Thanks for that - I think I'll try it.

  4. I didnt even know Designer Brands made body products! Shows how much I pay attention :P

    I like the sound of this, I gave up on body butters because they NEVER absorb into my skin!
