Having tried out the Shea Butter Body Scrub from TBS a while back, I picked up the body butter version of this just in time for the winters.  With an impressive ingredient list full of moisturizing agents including shea butter and beeswax, this seemed like just the thing for my dry skin in the winters.  Like all Body Shop body butters, the Shea Body Butter too is a thick cream that comes packed in a tub.  Despite the consistency, this body butter is easy to apply and absorbs quite soon into the skin, leaving it moisturized and lightly scented with a powdery, nutty smell that I love!  My skin stays moisturized the whole day, so I really cannot complain about the effectiveness of this, but I do feel that the Olive Body Butter is a teeny bit heavier/greasier than this and a better fit for my superdry skin than this shea butter.  I have insanely dry skin, though, so for most people this should be a good enough moisturizer for the winters.

Bonus points - because the smell is sort of clean and not really floral or too girly, this is something I can safely share with my husband - "can" doesn't necessarily mean "I do" though - but if you are the caring, sharing, giving kinds, you could always get this for the man in the house :P
