The Body Shop Honey and Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter


Lovin’ this butter on my skin;  it's a great body moisturizer especially at night

Here are 2 of my The Body Shop favorites at the moment: Spa Wisdom Hand & Foot butter and my Chocomania Lip Butter. But today I’m just talking about the hand and foot butter.


Nowadays, I really pay attention to moisturizing not just my face and neck but also my body. Aging takes its toll on other parts of the body, too, so I must make sure that I try to get most of it taken care of well.

I do suffer from flaky arms and legs once in a while, mostly because I’m lazy or rushing during the day to apply lotion after bathing. I only have enough time to do this at night, before going to sleep. I’ve been using body butters before going to sleep because it works well in moisturizing the skin overnight, especially since we sleep in an air-conditioned room. 

Thanks to The Butterfly Project, Tammy, Illy and the rest of the sisters, I received this Honey and Beeswax Hand & Foot Butter during one of our activities as an Instagram contest prize, together with other stuff. Yay!

This butter comes in a transparent jar with airtight cover, making sure it is protected and will last longer. The jar reminds me of food container and I know that I can recycle the jar after I finish the product. Nice reusable packaging.

I love the butter texture that spreads easily on the skin. Since it is a body ‘butter’, it definitely leaves a film of butter moisture so I won’t recommend this if you’re going out on a sunny day, unless you have ultra dry skin. But this is perfect for night use and you’ll wake up to smoother, softer skin all over your body.

Feels and smells great on the skin!

Give it one sniff and you’ll fall in love with the serene, sweet scent. It’s actually delicious, like something I can eat (well, I restrained myself from attempting to). I apply it at night on my arms, elbows, legs, knees, feet and on my son’s feet. It’s so easy to fall in love with this butter!

The HEART Inside
Our Community Fair Trade beeswax is sourced from Guide D’Espoir in Cameroon. We work with Guide D’Espoir (meaning “Guiding Hope) because they produce some of the highest quality beeswax in Cameroon, have a strong commitment to ethical and fair trade principles and are also investing in the development of the beekeepers and their associated communities. Our trade helps provide regular employment and fair wages to approximately 1,000 beekeepers, and so benefits their household members and dependents too: about 10,000 people in total! To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section. We source our Community Fair Trade honey from Bezamar in Ethiopia. The honey is made in the Bale Eco-Region, where hives are handcrafted from locally grown bamboo. The raw comb is harvested and the honey is separated, filtered and tested for quality. These traditional methods promote strong, healthy bees and deter logging. To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section.
