Review | The body shop body butters and lotions

I've been using the body shop body butters for years, I remember my sister in law didn't like the scent of one and handed it to me and I fell in love! one thing I don't love is the price tag, at £13 for a 200ml tub, I personally wouldn't buy it, but luckily the body shop always have offers on their body butters and I can usually pick them up for around £5 a tub, which is a much better price which i'm happy to pay!
the scents I currently have are Chocomania, Shea butter, Almond and Raspberry (Which i'm saving for summer!) I've just finished the coconut scent and making my way through Chocomania, although it's starting to smell a bit heavy (It smells like double chocolate chip cookies) and i'm getting more into fruity scents and this is more of a winter scent. I apply these after a bath or shower before bed and when I wake up in the morning my skin is so smooth I can't stop stroking my legs! I haven't yet come across a scent which I don't like, and around Christmas time they bring out more spicy seasonal scents.

I also own two of the full size body lotions in Peach vineyard and Vanilla which smell absolutely gorgeous, I use these in the morning and i can still smell them on my body in the evening, they linger around all day and they sink in extremely fast and leave me all nice and soft at £8 a bottle i don't mind paying full price, because they last ages and I think are worth the money
Obviously the body lotions sink in faster than the body butters because they have a lot thinner consistency  the body butters are extremely thick and luxurious.

Have you tried any of the body shop body butter? whats your favorite scent?
