Hi there! Today’s post is about Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. This body butter promises to nourish and moisturise skin and to make skin feel smooth and supple. I’ve been using it for about a week now, and here’s what I think. 🙂
I agree that this body butter is nourishing. Once applied, it feels a bit sticky. But after a few minutes it’s perfectly fine. The fragrance is quite pleasant as well, but it’s pretty much watermelon only. I don’t smell any grapefruit at all. Anyhoo… I’m glad I bought this product! I didn’t love the matching shower gel, but the body butter is actually quite nice, and I would recommend it to anyone with dry skin!
Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter is available as 235g. I paid 99p for the tub (Home Bargains). I’ve also reviewed the matching shower gel, and you can read the review here.

Hi there! After the battle of the limes and the battle of the lemons, the Battle of the Melons is now on! 🙂 I bought this Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit shower gel ages ago, but I left it untouched until I realised that I also had this melon-scented Superdrug Kids Head To Toe Wash. So I thought it’s time for another product comparison!
OK, one’s a watermelon, the other one’s more of a honeydew melon – so how can these two be compared? Well, I love all melons equally, so I’ll be impartial. Promise! But now on to the actual reviews…
Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit smells pretty much of watermelon only. I think the scent is not unpleasant, but it’s very generic and forgettable. In my opinion this shower gel is quite expensive (£4) for what it is. I paid 99p only, so I won’t complain. However, I wouldn’t buy it again. Saying this, scents are personal, so the next person might love it.
Superdrug Kids Head To Toe Wash is not perfect either. The shower gel is quite thin, so it spills out of the tube the moment you open it. As this product is aimed at kids, I think it would be better if Superdrug changed the packaging (but keep the elephant and the mouse, please) to a bottle with a lid on top to prevent unintended spilling. In regards to the actual shower gel, it’s very gentle and soft which is great if you have dry or sensitive skin. The sunny honeydew melon scent is very authentic – well done, Superdrug!
In my opinion Superdrug Kids Head To Toe Wash is the winner of the Battle of the Melons. It feels nicer on the skin (well, it’s for kids after all), the fragrance is more intense and, priced at £1.29 it’s a bargain in comparison to the Grace Cole shower gel. In addition, the Superdrug shower gel is BUAV-approved and carries the Leaping Bunny logo – it’s suitable for vegans and it’s cruelty-free.
