I bought “You Snap the Whip” body butter from Lush few days back. Even though it’s pretty hot and humid these days, my skin is still on the drier side. So I thought I would give sticky body lotions a miss and use a body butter instead!! Also I find it’s a pain to moisturize everyday and sometimes if I am getting late for work I just skip the whole moisturizing routine!!

This body butter has finely ground pumice and charcoal bits in it for scrubbing action. It also has cocoa butter, organic macadamia nut oil, Laureth 4, bergamot oil, cassis absolute, cypress oil and perfume. Lush claims that “pumice and charcoal banish rough bits that make the skin look dull and reveal the new skin underneath. Luxurious macadamia nut oil comforts to keep it soft and well behaved and scents you with fruity blackcurrant and bergamot essential oils. Powdered charcoal absorbs excess oils from the surface of the skin”.
I really love the smell. It smells yummy of blackcurrants. It feels amazing on the skin. You just need to rub it on your body and leave it for about 5 minutes (well it depends on your patience). It is not advised to wash it off. But it is really oily and dirty; so I always washed it off. It feels amazing on the skin. It has a good exfoliating power. My skin felt smooth and soft after using it. I just did not feel to moisturise after!!

But it left my bath tub dirty with black residue all over. I recommend using it only if you have enough time to clean you bath tub later!
It lasted me for just 6 baths.It melted so quickly. The first time I applied it almost half of it was gone. So the next 5 baths I was super stingy. Also I advise you to keep it a dry place.
I think it is super over-priced for the number of usage you get out of it! It costs almost 16$ for a 95gms bar.
I really love the smell, the product is amazing, I actually looked forward to bathing when I had it. But will I re-purchase?? No,16$ for 6 baths (although luxurious), not really!!
