New kids in town ‘DHC’ are from Japan and have put together a range of beauty products which are available to buy from the UK. We were sent the Olive Body Butter to try.
First off, the packaging looks natural and quite minimalistic which is actually quite refreshing. Decorated in cream and green, with bold writing on the front featuring the name of the product, the DHC Olive Body Butter looks luxurious and we couldn’t wait to try it out!
We opened the box and inside was a large tub of body butter which was decorated similarly to the box, with a few colourful flowers included. The tub is made of hard plastic. The lid is ridged to make it easy to grab hold of for opening it – no slipping out of your hands!
The first thing we did was opened the lid and smelled the product. We were surprised to find this didn’t really smell of olives to us, but instead smells almost like Rose oil. After reading the ingredients we discovered that the product is made from olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil which as you will expect, makes your skin feel instantly smooth.
The cream itself is thick, cream coloured and has a similar texture to a partially melted candle. This might sound really unpleasant but actually we really liked it. Upon applying some, we discovered the cream is quite rich and takes some time to sink into your skin, but once it does, it makes your skin feel soft and luxurious which is perfect for us Brits in this lovely wet,windy and freezingly cold weather.
So take the time to treat youself to a long hot soak, then treat your skin to some head to toe pampering as you hydrate your skin with shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil, all perfectly packaged in this Olive Body Butter.
Tip: If you have a particular rough part of skin rub on a little of this around twice a day and you will notice a huge improvement.
DHC have a whole range of other products out, including cosmetics and hair products.
