Review: Betty Hula Shea Butter Moisurising Cream

I was sent this Betty Hula Shea Butter Moisturising Cream to review last month and have been testing it over the last couple of weeks.


I have the Champagne and Spice flavoured one, but it comes in other variations also.



Packaging - I like the packaging, it's a very luxe feeling glass jar  with a vintage charm to it. It would look very pretty on your dressing table. However the jar is very small compared to other companies at only 120ml



Product - The product is like other body butters, very thick and moisturising, although I don't think it's as tough to rub in as traditional thick body butters so that's good when I'm in a rush in the morning. It smells very nice and autumnal, very warming scent which would be perfect for the colder months, although the scent is quite strong so not good for those who don't like smelling the cream on their skin all day!


It's nice and moisturising, and like other thick body butters you can feel it on the skin when it's been applied. It's good for dry shins after shaving and showering. I also used it as the barrier cream when fake tanning and it worked very well. The ingredients listed include Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E which are all very good for your skin.



Summary


Pros





  • Lovely scent


  • Nice texture which spreads and soaks in well


  • Lovely packaging


Cons





  • Small tub


  • Quite expensive at £14.99



Overall rating - 3/5


It's not a terrible product and performs better than other body butters I've tried. The scent is lovely and it works well. However I prefer a more liquid moisturiser that sinks in quickly and spreads further with more contents in the bottle. Also the price puts me off quite a bit. I don't know that I'd purchase it but I'm enjoying the product I have left and the scent.



You can get it for £14.99 from Betty Hula online or from Sainsburys

  1. Nice review, I don't like it when the smell is too overpowering, I prefer natural scents.. It is a little expensive! x

  2. I loooove this moisturizer, particularly this smell, but I agree, it's a lot of money for a small amount :)

  3. I adore this product. I have been using the secret oil for about a year and I discovered that Sainsbury's were selling it at half price so I bought 6 tubs!!!
