My Thoughts
First off I would like to mention that the smell of this is so YUM. It has a smell of a mix of chocolate and coffee that lingers on the skin long after being put on. The texture of this is typical to any body butter: very thick and creamy. The difference that I noticed in the texture of this body butter compared to others that I have used is that it isn't as greasy feeling. 
I would have to say that this body butter is very moisturizing. I like to take showers at night and use this directly after all over my body. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is so soft and really feels hydrated. Previous to buying this, I had been using The Body Shop Shea Body Butter as my all over moisturizer to help prolong the life of my self tanner. I do love this body butter but it can be quite expensive from $18 to $25 dollars, depending. I really wanted to find a cheaper alternative since I use it every day, if not two times a  day. I do believe that the Tree Hut Shea Body Butter will be a very good replacement to this. The only real difference that I notice between the two (besides the smell) is the texture. The Body Shop Shea Body Butter is def. more easily spreadable and a tad more greasy feeling. 

Price and Where to Find
The Tree Hut Shea Body Butter is around $6 to $8 dollars for 7 oz (depending on where you purchase it at). I bought mine at Wal Mart but I know this brand is also sold at Ulta and other drug stores. The shea body butters by Tree Hut also come in a number of other scents. :)

What is your favorite body butter?

  2. I LOVE this stuff.. the smell is so amazing! I agree that it's kind of hard to spread around so when I use it I really warm it up between my hands before applying it to my legs, or wherever. I find that it helps a bit! ;)

  3. this looks so creamy and nice! definitely would love the smell you described :)
