Product Review: c. Booth Body Butters & Body Scrubs





This weekend my mom gave me four jars of c. Booth body products. She ordered some online and gave me a few containers since she had so much. Like myself, she's very into natural soaps, lotions, and things of that nature. How generous, mother! I never really used c. Booth's products, so I decided that I might as well try 'em out and make a review to share with you all.

c. Booth is under the Freeman Beauty line which has been around since 1976 and carries several other lines of hair and skin products. So here I have two body butters and two scrubs: Egyptian Argan Oil Body Butter, Italian Olive Oil Body Butter, All-Over Body Sea Salt Scrub, and Ginger Sugar Body Scrub. Each container is 8oz and states that the products are "FREE OF PARABENS, SULFATES, MINERAL OIL, PETROLATUM". The prices for these products are pretty decent as well; $7.99 for body butters and $8.99 for scrubs.


First product I tried was the Ginger Sugar Body Scrub. I absolutely LOVE ginger, it's my favorite herb. I add it in my food and I put it on my body. Upon opening this, I just loved the smell of the scrub. There isn't an overwhelming smell of ginger, and some of the other ingredients include grapefruit, sesame oil, grapeseed oil, and pineapple extract. This scrub is very moisturizing and has a great feel to it. It's not sticky or watery and has a pretty thick texture to it. 


After I used the scrub, I lotioned my body down with the Egyptian Argan Oil Body Butter. This light lilac body butter has a pudding like texture and medium consistency. The butter has a slight musky, sexy smell that reminds me of the Mediterranean. Ingredients in this body butter include cocoa seed butter, grape seed oil, shea butter, and of course argan oil. The shea butter, cocoa seed butter, and argan oil really add to the amazing scent. My skin was really smooth and soft after applying the body butter and I think using the ginger scrub really added to that feel. This is super hydrating and moisturizing and an A+ in my book.


The All-Over Body Sea Salt Scrub was cute, I wasn't too crazy about that, perhaps because I personally like a sweet smell to my soaps and scrubs all the while doing the job of exfoliating. While I didn't care much for the smell, it definitely exfoliated my skin well. Sea salt is one of the most popular ingredients used in scrubs to exfoliate. My skin was soft after using it, but not as soft as my skin was after I used the ginger scrub. However, like the ginger scrub, this sea salt treat was not sticky and also has a thick consistency. This scrub has a eucaplytus scent which is one of the main ingredients. I would highly recommend this scrub for people who love earthy oil smells. 


I tried the Italian Olive Oil Body Butter after using the All-Over Sea Salt Scrub. Like many olive oils, this butter does not have a really strong smell, so if you're a person who's not interested in smelling like a flower shop, this would be best for you. Although olive oil is a staple in this body butter, this butter is not greasy and also has beeswax, aloe juice, and cocoa seed butter in it. This light green colored butter didn't leave my skin as smooth as the argan oil butter, but it's still a decent moisturizer. 

I highly recommend the Italian Olive Oil Body Butter and All-Over Sea Salt Scrub to the men out there. My faves from this bunch is the Ginger Sugar Scrub and the Egyptian Argan Oil Body Butter. I love the smell, consistency, and how soft the products both made my skin feel. 

Be sure to stay tuned for more product reviews!
