Massage o'clock!

I'm a very lucky girl in the sense that my lovely boyfriend gives the best massages known to man. Every night I stay over, without fail, I'm sent to sleep with a lengthy massage and I always sleep so amazingly as a result.

But rather than use massage oils which I can find to be super greasy, I use (or he uses!) some of my extensive body butter collection. At the moment we have several mini pots from The Body Shop stacked up which are the perfect consistency and feel gorgeous when warmed in the hands.

I always want more, though! So I've made a wish list of my body butter and lotion wants to give me that perfect massage- morning, noon or night!

Top Row:
Cake Beauty Sweet Cheeks Better Bod Rub, £20- I have some lotion by Cake and they really do smell of the perfect vanilla sponge!
YSL Paris Babydoll Moisturising Body Lotion, £24- I admit I only picked this because he calls me babydoll, hehe.
Bliss Lemon & Sage Body Butter, £35- Quite expensive but I think this would be gorgeous on a hot summer night
Green & Spring Relaxing Body Lotion, £22- The perfect way to doze off to sleep, I reckon. And the packaging is gorgeous.
Philosophy Sooth Me Lavender Body Lotion, £17- I love Philosophy and the smell of lavender sends me off into a wonderful deep sleep instantly.
Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache Body Creme, £38- It's my dream to have a bathroom full of Laura Mercier products!

Middle row:
Lush Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar, £6.93- I love Lush but have never used one of their massage bars. Any followers have anything good or bad to say about them?

Bottom Row:
Soap and Glory The Daily Smooth, £8- I rarely have a bad word to say about Soap and Glory!
The Body Shop Love etc Body Butter, £12.50- I got the perfume, body lotion and shower gel of this fragrance for my 21st birthday and I adore it. Must add the body butter to my collection!
The Body Shop Raspberry Body Butter, £12.50- A wonderful sweet berry smell with a fab pink colouring to it!
The Body Shop Olive Body Butter, £12.50- This is perhaps my most wanted and I must get round to buying it, although I wish they did it in the smaller £5 pots. It's so fresh!

So, as you can see, The Body Shop is a bigger winner with me. What are your favourite body butters and lotions? And are you as much as a collector as I am with them?


  1. What a fab post! I am soo lucky, my husband gives me a massage every single day :) I love Lush Wiccy Magic Muscles for aches (I love picking out the beans too!) & Honey B body whip if I want something moisturising and non-greasy (it smells AMAZING too!).

  2. I want to try a lush body bar too:) they look so adorable! x
