No one likes dry skin, but over the summer months when more of it is on display than at any other time of year, soft, moisturised skin is a must. The Fashion Bust team has been on the hunt for the perfect body butters for silky smooth, fragrant skin for summer and all year round. Here are three of the best we’ve found.
Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter
You’ll want to stock up on this gorgeous limited edition body butter from Body Shop while you can, as it’s not available all the time. With a lovely sweet smell and super soft, non-greasy formula, it’s the Fair Trade Brazil Nut Oil in this body butter that gives it its long-lasting, ultra moisturising effect which has made it a favourite with so many women. We love it because it’s brilliant for dry skin and it doesn’t take many applications before you start to see the difference. A great buy if you want a smooth, even skin tone for summer legs.

Boots Extracts Fairtrade Mango Body Butter
A feelgood purchase in more ways than one, this body butter combines ethical credentials with the most gorgeous mangoey scent and fantastic moisturising properties. The Boots Extracts range is made from Fairtrade ingredients and includes a number of body butters. This one is our favourite because it is such a lovely way to start the day and banished our dry skin almost instantly. Slather it on after your morning shower and you’ll not only be silky smooth all day but you’ll smell like a fruity, tropical paradise!

Sanctuary Spa Body Butter
This luxurious product from Sanctuary Spa majors on the two big hitters of body butters, cocoa butter and shea butter, and the result is gorgeously soft, supple skin with that lovey Sanctuary fragrance. It has a long-lasting moisturising effect and it is great to take on holiday to apply after a day in the sun. It’s also lovely and gentle after exfoliation and is absorbed quickly into skin. There’s already an army of fans out there for this body butter and we’ve just joined them.
