Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Olive Body Butter

Hi there! And welcome to today’s episode of ‘Reducing My Oldies Stash’. 😉 Today I’m reviewing an old favourite, Boots Extracts Olive Body Butter.

This product promises to moisturise and to soften skin with the help of olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and sweet almond oil. In addition, this body butter promises nourished and healthy looking skin. If you read on, I’ll tell you more! 🙂

First of all, this body butter smells amazing. No, it doesn’t smell like olives or olive oil. It smells fresh, green, joyful and feminine. It’s perfect – I love it! And I’ve never come across any other ‘green’ fragrance that smells this lovely.

Now let’s get to this body butter’s actual job – skin care! This body butter is definitely nourishing and moisturising. It makes my skin feel soft and supple. It’s perfect for dry, very dry and flaky skin. However, this body butter isn’t sticky at all because it’s easy to massage into the skin, and it’s absorbed quickly. I think the formula is perfect.

Because of this it is very unfortunate that Boots discotinued this body butter. And it’s even worse hat they replaced it with a cheap smelling strawberry body butter. I’m glad that I still have a few tubs of this olive body butter. I’ll be enjoying them very much, no doubt.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Wash & Bath Cream

Hi there! I’m a big fan of Boots’ Extracts collection. So I’ll be reviewing two products which have been lurking in my bathroom cabinet for quite a while. Meet Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Wash & Bath Cream. In summary, both products promise to cleanse skin gently, and to leave skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised.

I really like the body wash. The fragrance is absolutely delicious (more expensive high street brands should take note). It’s the perfect cocoa butter fragrance. I also like that this body wash lathers up nicely and that it really makes my skin feel soft. Yes, this body wash is gentle and it’s not drying at all.
Boots Extracts Cocoa Shower + Bath
The bath cream is very nice too. It smells just as heavenly as the shower gel, and it also doesn’t dry out my skin. I wouldn’t say it’s moisturising, but it comes close to being moisturising. Very nice, really! And the best thing is… I have several bottles! Of couse they were on special (clearance, actually). 🙂

Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Wash has been repackaged and it’s available as 200ml for £4. If you haven’t tried it yet, you really need to change that! And don’t forget to pick up the matching body butter! The Bath Cream has been discontinued – which is very unfortunate.

Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash, Body Butter, Body Scrub

Hi there! It’s been a while since I’ve used anything from my Boots Extracts For All Seasons Christmas gift set (the one I gifted to myself on Boxing Day when the half price sale started). So I thought it’s time to try another product line. Meet Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash, Body Butter and Body Scrub.

These products are travel-sized (75ml scrub, 75ml body wash, 50ml body butter). And with the 50% off deal I paid £2.50 in total for these three products. That’s not too bad, I think. 🙂 Now let’s get to the products!
Boots Extracts Mango
Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Scrub is OK. It smells wonderfully sweet and juicy, but the scrub is too gentle for my liking. I prefer ‘scrubbier’ scrubs for my body.

I really like the Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash. It smells absolutely lovely and it produces quite a lather! Another good thing is that this body wash isn’t drying at all. Well done, Boots!

The Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Butter is my favourite of this trio. This mango body butter smells insanely delightful, it’s rich and moisturising, and the formula is a dream – it’s a true butter, but it’s not sticky! Other high street brands should take note – THIS is the perfect mango body butter!

Boots Extracts Sweet Mango is available as:
400ml Sugar Scrub (which is not the product I reviewed today) for £6.50,
200ml Body Wash for £4,
200ml Body Butter for £6,
150ml Body Spray for £3.50.

Boots Extracts Shea Butter Body Butter

Hi there! Now that it’s getting colder, my skin needs a little extra care and attention to stay healthy and moisturised. Because of this I’m now using the wonderful Boots Extracts Shea Butter Body Butter.

Boots revamped its entire Extracts collection and unfortunately this body butter was discontinued. However, I’ve got two tubs left so I don’t have to say goodbye to this gorgeous beauty staple just yet.
2015 Boots Extracts Shea Butter 01
In my opinion, Boots should have kept this product in its Extracts collection; this body butter does a great job moisturising dry skin and its heavenly scent reminds me of Nutella – it’s just a little more chocolatey and nutty and a tad less sweet.

Whilst Boots Extracts Shea Butter Body Butter has been discontinued, I recommend the brazil nut, cocoa and vanilla body butters from Boots’ Extracts collection; if you enjoy sweet and warm scents in body butters, you’ll enjoy them. Boots Extracts body butters are available as 200 ml tubs for £6 each.

Boots Extracts Brazil Nut Body Butter

Hi there! In the past few months I’ve reviewed quite a few Superdrug own brand products and I think that reviews of some of my favourite Boots own brand products are way overdue. One of my favourite body moisturisers is Boots Extratcs Brazil Nut Body Butter.

Whilst Boots has redesigned the packaging of its entire Extracts collection, the quality and the scent of this body butter remained the same. This means that this product is still the ultimate cookie dough body butter! 🙂 I kid you not. This body butter smells just as sweet and delicious as vanilla cookie dough!
Extracts Brazil Nut
Yes, I know that brazil nuts don’t smell or taste like cookie dough at all, but seriously, who would want to smell like bitter and pungent brazil nut oil? Well, not many people. So it’s a good thing that Boots took the moisturising benefits of brazil nut oil, but opted for a fragrance that is sweeter and even more delicious than its vanilla or chocolate body butters.

I really love this body butter; it’s an excellent moisturiser that doesn’t stick to clothes. I also love to use it on my hands, especially in winter, because this butter is so much more moisturising than any regular hand cream. So would I recommend this body butter to a friend? You bet!

Boots Extracts Brazil Nut body butter is available as 200 ml for £6 in Boots stores or online. Boots also does a body wash, a body scrub and a body lotion with the same irresistible fragrance.
