Hi beauties, the other day I was in Tesco causally browsing the beauty isles as you do, and was drawn to this lime blossom body butter by a brand called Flower Pharm. Now I've never heard of this brand before, but its cute, yet simple packaging caught my eye and after having a quick smell (it more than passed the sniff test) I decided to pop it in my basket so I could test it out. A lot of you know I adore body butters and I have to say that this lime blossom one is just a tub full of loveliness.
First of all let me tell you all about the smell - As the tub would suggest the smell has the fragrance of lime blossom, initially I wasn't sure if this was a name of an actual plant or if the brand decided to just infuse lime and flower scents together - I did a little research and it is in fact and actual plant which is also known as Linden. So what does lime blossom smell like? Well its actually pretty hard to describe, its one of those smells that you really need to smell yourself, but I think its just lovely! When I take a whiff it reminds me of walking into a meadow full of fresh flowers. The fragrance of this body butter is a very delicate one and not on the heavy side. You get the most gorgeous smell of spring time flowers but you also get a hint of lime in there which stops this body butter smelling too floral. When I say you get a hint of lime, I'm not talking about a strong overpowering scent of it either if your thinking along the lines of S&G's Sugar Crush, it's fairly subtle and just makes the scent of this body butter that extra bit special and different. Personally I don't think the smell will be to everyone's liking as does have that aromatherapy kind of smell to it, which makes sense as the flower lime blossom is known for its relaxing and calming properties and is often used in teas and herbal remedies. When you smell this body butter you do get a sense of feeling relaxed as the smell is just so fresh, yet very feminine and dainty. I love floral fragrance things, but love how this Flower Pharm one doesn't smell artificial or too over powering, its just perfect and smells like you have just been handed a bouquet of flowers. The tub says that wearing this 'feels like spring everyday' and I couldn't agree more, the fragrance couldn't be more fitting for this time of year.
As for a moisturiser this Flower Pharm one applies evenly over the skin, in the tub its a thick and feels as though it will be quite heavy. But once applied it absorbs really quickly into the skin and doesn't leave you with that sticky after feeling - Which makes it perfect for applying in the mornings, especially when you need to get out the door quick and don't have time to hang around waiting for your moisturiser to dry. Each time I've used this, it's left my skin feeling nourished and I love how the flowery scent clings onto your body for hours after its application.
I also love the simple packaging of this body butter as it's minimal fuss, looks clean with its lilac tub and pretty little blossoms scattered around it. For me it reflects what the body butter is like - pretty, delicate, fresh and girly. I've had a good look around the Internet to see if I could find a link for this Flower Pharm Body Butter, but I had no such luck, I couldn't even find it on the Tesco website. But I'm pretty sure that you will be able to find this in your local Tesco stores, especially if its a big one and its around the £5 mark which is a bargain as you get a lot of product and a little of this goes a long way.
Overall I am loving this little beauty and this will definitely be my most reached for body butter over Spring. Have you tried any of the Flower Pharm products? I would love to know.
Lot's of Love
