Valentine Day fever is in the air. And, to add to it, I am going to review a product that has the most mesmerizing and soothing rose fragrance. It is body butter from Fabindia – rose and almond body butter.
I picked it up along with a shower gel and body lotion combo among which I have already reviewed the shower gel here.
The main reason for picking it up is, I love the fragrance of rose during winters. It comes in a semi-transparent yet sturdy tub packing.
This hydrating blend of almond oil, shea butter and coconut oil nourishes the skin while rose water has a soothing effect.
Price: A modest INR. 275/- for 100 ml product.
Expiry: 36 months.
My experience with the Fabindia – Rose and Almond Body Butter.
The product is a thick light pink cream. Texture does not feel heavy despite being thick.
It has the most wonderful and soothing rose fragrance. The fragrance is not artificial or irritating. I love to use this product after a warm shower before bed and this fragrance envelopes me in cozy fragrant warmth which instantly relaxes my senses.
Coming to the main part, it moisturizes very well. It eliminates the dryness and makes skin soft like silk (not the zari part). You don’t need a whole lot of product as it spreads well and sinks into the skin in a jiffy. It does not feel sticky or remind you of its presence throughout the day.
The best part is the fragrance lingers throughout the day. Once applied, the fragrance is quite obvious and slowly as the day progresses, it loses its intensity but is very much still there. That said, as it is a body butter people cannot smell your fragrance unless they are sitting near or so and that makes this one work appropriate too.

What I love:
Soothing rose fragrance.

Extremely moisturizing and retains moisture for a long time.

Spreads easily and gets absorbed into the skin well.

If you love the wild rose fragrance go and grab it without a second thought. It is extremely soothing and this is one of the best body butters that comes with such an affordable price tag.
