Before now the only product I'd tried by Japanese super brand DHC was the much loved Deep Cleansing Oil, so I was pretty keen to try something from the body range.
Firstly, the packaging for the Olive Body Butter is gorgeous - it's amazing how far some strategically placed flower illustrations can go in terms of increasing the desirability of a product! the 100g plastic jar comes in an equally pretty cardboard box that tells you all you need to know about what's inside:
"Wrap yourself in rich, moisturising cocoa and shea butters. Natural emollients olive, argan and avocado oils boost hydration for velvety-soft, supremely touchable skin. Enlivening green apple and rose scent."
As I literally received this today I haven't applied it directly after a shower as yet but I have been smothering it on my arms today and it isn't greasy in the slightest, in fact it seems to sink in extremely fast. Perhaps that's testament to just how dry my skin is in this moisture-sapping English weather? Moisturising lotions and potions without the grease factor get a giant tick in my book so I'm going to go ahead and recommend the bejesus out of this product.
The DHC Olive Body Butter hasn't actually launched in the UK yet but will be available from the 1st of January from DHC UK and possibly BeautyMART and Selfridges London as they stock other DHC products. The Olive Body Butter will retail for £15.50.
