The Body Shop Body Butter Duo ~ Sweet Pea & Macadamia

What is the one known trait of a Gemini? Being two-faced. If you have been reading my blog from the start, you'd have noticed a cycle- I have to have 2 or more of the same thing. Even with these duos, I had to get 2, see? I'm never satisfied with just one (I mean things, not people ;)). Can you imagine having 2 mothers or 2 husbands?! I'd go insane! =D

When I first laid eyes on The Body Shop Body Butter Duos, it was like a little bulb inside me lit up. Twin language? Hehe.

So, what's the deal with TBS Body Butter Duo? Basically, this twin pot contains two types of moisture: a light cream for where skin needs less hydration and a rich cream for drier areas like elbows and knees. In my case, feet too.

Sweet Pea: Darker pink (L) is thicker

Thinner, Thicker

Macadamia: L- thicker, R- thinner

Thinner, Thicker
I feel stupid writing "Thinner, Thicker" but who can be smarty pants on Mondays, right? :)

My favorite of the two is Macadamia, because it smells kinda coconutty and very similar to TBS Brazil Nut Hair Mask, if I remember correctly. Sweet pea doesn't smell so nice to me- smells like the flower itself.
The winner out of the duo is definitely the thicker butter. It's so....buttery and it really softens my feet, especially the heels. If you love TBS Body Butters, then you are going to love these too.

Price ~ Bought these in Singapore, where they were on sale for a few days- SGD 18.90 (Rs.688)

Oh! Speaking of getting 2 of everything, isn't it ironic that I also got 2 sets of  Sleek Avoir la Peche? ;)

  1. I LovE!!!! Body Shop body butters...I hope they launch this in India soon :)

  2. oooh wow, dont think i have seen this in mumbai though.

  3. dats a nice like...

  4. Though I am not a Gemini, but I am so tempted by this TBS Duo ;)

  5. I hope they launch this in India soon (and by 'soon' we all know that means 1 friggin year!). I've always found their body lotions to be just alright - does not moisture my body enough during the winter, and their body butters are too thick for the summer, especially when you;re living in Bombay like me. This seems like the perfect solution!!! :D

  6. this sounds like an amazing product! will check if my local body shop has this on stock.

    i think labeling thinner and thicker was really thoughtful of you. thank you! :)

  7. Ooh, I love the idea of having two different consistencies in the same jar. =D

  8. Nice products! You have a great blog here. New follower. =)


  9. Nice... I haven't seen them here in Spain. Only mono butter, not duos :P

  10. Now I want to try these too :P


I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
