I've tried many a body butter over the years finally settling with the Body Shop's after experiences of awful smells, greasy films left on my skin and general rubbishness.
Recently I was sent this to try out. As the brand suggests, it is 100% organic. Why honey? Manuka honey is derived from the Manuka Tree and is a natural healing agent. All the products in the range contain organic active ingredients. Bia Active simply means the ingredient is working as it would in its raw state, that means you get the most out of each ingredient.
My first thoughts were how sweet the smell was. I was worried that the smell would transfer onto my skin and I would be a honey trap for bees. Lucikly, when I used the product the smell died down completely and I was left with a slight scent when I got up close to where I had used the product. Phew! The butter is a lot more creamy that the body shops version and left my skin hydrated and softer for longer. It definitely felt like there was less water content to the product. It also contains no parabens, no SLS, no GMO ingredients and no mineral oils.
The Dr Organic range is massive. Under each ingredient, are an extensive range of lotions, body butters, hair care, deodarant, toothpaste, mouthwash, nody washes, pure oil, wipes and lip balms. You can get all of these in; Manuka Honey, Tea Tree, Vitamin E, Pomegranate and Lavender.
Even though the range is 100% organic, you dont have the pay through the nose for it. Prices start at £2.49 with the body butter being the most expensive at £8.99 compared to a £12 body shop one... you do the math!
Dr Organic is stocked at Holland & Barrett.
