Nip+Fab Mango Smoothie Dry Skin Fix Body Butter is available from Boots for £8.49

Nip+Fab are a brand I've always wanted to try but for whatever reason I've just never got around to purchasing any of their products! So when I received this body butter sample in my pretty darn amazing April Glossybox [link here] I was really pleased. There were three versions of Nip+Fab's Body Butter up for grabs and I received Mango Smoothie- a gorgeous, sweet scented body butter that smells just like ripe, fresh mangoes. It has none of that artificial scent about it that some fruity products do.

As you can see from my last photo, the Mango Smoothie Dry Skin Fix is really quite a thick product - it doesn't drip like a lotion but I wouldn't describe it as being quite as thick as the Body Shop's Body Butters. Mango Smoothie Dry Skin Fix contains shea butter and avocado oil which means that it's intensely moisturising and I do find that when I've used it my skin has been left noticeable smooth all day long. It's one downside is that it does contain mineral oils which some people rigorously avoid, and this ingredient makes this inappropriate for anyone who suffers from blocked pores or acne on their body as mineral oil is known to aggravate these conditions.

Personally, I like the product and I've enjoyed using it but I don't know if I'd repurchase it. It did a good job at keeping my skin hydrating and soft, and I do like the scent, but I just didn't fall in love with it like I have done with some other moisturising products. In place of repurchasing it I'm probably going to have look into trying a couple of other Nip+Fab products over the next few months so keep your eyes peeled for those!

Have you tried this Body Butter before? What's your favourite Body Butter?

    Yes, the packaging are so cute right:) I highly recommend the products, I think you´re gonna like it^^
    Oh, I love everything mango, I haven´t tried this though, but it looks delicious :) xx

  3. wow that looks like such a great body butter. i've been a fan of body shop's mango body butter for years, so i'll have to give this one a try!


  4. I've got this, all photographed and ready to review too, but I felt pretty much the same as you did about it - it's really nice and smells lovely, but nothing mind-blowing. To be honest, I'm often like this when it comes to bodycare products - it's rare that I find something I really love, probably because I'm just not as bothered as I am about skincare and makeup!
