The Nature's Co Irish Moss Body Butter Review

I received The Nature's Co Irish Moss Body Butter in the Beauty Wishbox some months back. I had received a sample sized product of 35 ml. I thought of using it in winters and so after using it am reviewing today. Irish Moss, I am as clueless as you are, as you read this ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Irish Moss is a species of red algae which grows abundantly along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coast of Europe and North America (taken from wiki ๐Ÿ˜Ž), Colour varies from blue to slightly green.



Brand claims 
Slather on whipped Irish Moss Body Butter. It contains Irish Moss extract which had soothing, protective & nourishing properties that work wonders on your skin.

Key Ingredients - Irish Moss extract, Grape seed oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Olive oil, Cream base, Aroma, Natural preservatives and For Grade colors (FD & C ) Q.S

My experience
The product as you can see is housed in a plastic tub but the full sized one comes in a 270ml of plastic tub. The body butter has a refreshing aroma, guess it is that of Irish Moss. Since I haven't really smelt a Moss I can't say anything๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

The body butter is pale green colour and some colour is attributed to the food grade colours added to the product. The body butter is thick in consistency and buttery in texture. It spreads easily and gets absorbed quickly into the skin. The body butter feels a bit oily at first and soon sinks into the skin giving soft and smooth skin.
The moisturization effect lasts for around 8 hours after which one may need a reapplication but I use just once per day.

It relieves dryness of hands and feet and gives nice smelling skin in an instant. However one thing got me worried after reading the ingredients is that it really doesn't contain any butter. The ingredients list mentioned on product says cream base then why is it called a body butter๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”. Overall the product is good to try out if you love using body butters and don't mind splurging ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.



The In 

  • Moisturises the skin and hydrates for 8 hours 
  • Gets absorbed into the skin with ease
  • Amazing aroma which is soothing as well as non bothering 
  • Makes the skin soft and smooth 
  • Vegan, Indian brand 

The Out 

  • No full ingredients list mentioned 
  • It's not really a body butter, but a cream based product 

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 1295 INR for 270 ml with a shelf life of 2 years. Available on TNC website as well as other shopping portals.

Recommendation
I would recommend it if you love using body butters and are into Luxury skincare and don't mind splurging. The product is okay priced given the quantity as body butters last longer than thought. I wouldn't repurchase this though skin it's doesn't contain any body butter.
